Build Summary

Level Guide:

Levels 28-30

Start by switching out to your wands. From 28-30 you will be on a 4L for soulrend. Grab MOM for 1 point, but don't take the nodes behind it yet (they are overkill at this stage) If you have a rain of splinters, grab the socket to place it now and use soulrend>spell totem>void manipulation>controlled destruction
If not, sub LMP for void manip for now, but get ROS asap. If you have Asenath's touch and a wand granting despair on hit, head next toward the new curse node up top. If not, grab the four dot/chaos nodes to the right of your starting area. (Get the additional curse node as soon as you have both curses on hit) You can also set up your 4L essence drain totem at this point. Don't worry about extra projectiles (if you don't have ROS), as this is extra damage for bossing only. Because of the way DOTs work, multiple totems of the same type won't stack damage, but totems of different types will. When bossing at this level use 1 soulrend totem and 1 essence drain for maximum effect. When generally clearing, 2 soulrend totems is best. Don't worry about blight/wither until 38.

Levels 31-37

If you have a tabula, you can add efficacy and swift affliction to your setup at 31. After the four DOT/chaos nodes to the right of the trickster, grab the small adjacent three node totem damage cluster that ends with some extra placement speed. That is both good damage and quality of life at this stage.

Levels 38-68

At 38 you can equip the last of your gems, and the build kicks into gear. You will now choose whether to wither or blight in your multiple totem setup. Which you want is genuinely a matter of taste. I've tried both, and we haven't made up my mind yet. Wither provides a more consistent hinder of less power and doesn't add damage beyond the debuff. Blight is shorter ranged and thus less consistent against mobile enemies. It also requires the use of a threshold jewel to be worth using, taking a slot that would otherwise be more EHP. In exchange, it provides a stronger hinder and significant extra damage when you can apply it. If you are less experienced, wither is recommended for its more straightforward interface.

Levels 69 - EndGame

you will have the option to equip allelopathy gloves to go with a 5L lvl 22 blight. Assuming that you won't find a pair corrupted with temp chains, it is recommended that you make this gear switch after your uber ascendancy (if you do it at all). If you go this route, you will respec the three nodes used to get an extra curse for an extra jewel socket where you can place spreading rot. This trade-off is discussed more under gloves in the gear section.

Build Description

Poe Blight is shorter ranged and thus less consistent against mobile enemies. It also requires the use of a threshold jewel to be worth using, taking a slot that would otherwise be more EHP. In exchange, it provides a stronger hinder and significant extra damage when you can apply it. If you are less experienced, wither is recommended for its more straightforward interface. This Build is Blight with inc AOE. Blight has like a 3ft radius, but it melts tough mobs around the totems and high-level bosses if you use the wither totem. It's also great for temple bosses with there chaos resistance.
