*When Chaos finally gets a proper top-tier build
“What’s our move here, master?”. It seems like Solael didn’t hear the question at all. The infamously cruel Witch God, who fully mastered the unstable and dangerous Realm of Chaos and who, with his fellow Witch Gods, had now full dominion over Cairn, looked like an aging bald wizard bending over his wizard ball. Contemplating. Of course, Apprentice knew that it was all just a astral projection made to resemble physical world. Noone really knew how Solael really looked. Or if he could ever been seen by the eyes of a mortal man. “Master?”. Solael just stood their motionless. Apprentice wondered if her master really ever looked like that, maybe eons ago when was just another mage hungry for knowledge and mastery of everything arcane. “I was never just another mage”, the voice was just appearing in Apprentice’s head, while Solael’s figure still stood there, motionless. It seems like Solael was reading her thoughts. "Inquisitor". The words coming from a Witch God were burning with images inside of Apprentice’s head. "He must be dealt with. Do not fail me, child".
This build was inspired by similiar Warlock of @KoS9K. In fact, I kept his devotion map because it worked so well. Check out his Warlock at the very end of the guide.

Round of Chaotic Q&A
What about Mark of Ulzuin?
Unfortunately, build becomes very incosistent with it. With Mark of Unlife covering DA we can invest heavily into Spirit and somewhat compensate for the loss of damage from not using Mark of Ulzuin
What’s with that Grand Piano? Is there a way to make this build more streamlined?
Unfortunately, there is none. The way Chaos devotion map works is a part of a reason why Chaos meta is so weak. You have to have skills to activate everything.
Can you maybe change devotion bindings?
I wish I could, but Revenant, Abomination and Dying God procs can be activated by same set of skills except Dying God can also be bound to Word of Pain. And we need to proc Eldritch Fire ASAP.
All the items are best in slot here. You can choose Conduit with weapon damage to AAR for more tankiness, but I recommend sticking to Essence of Grim Dawn. Skill distribution and devotion map seems to be an optimal one here.
Build is a huge piano, however, there is a method to this madness. Position is key to everything. Try and learn how to pilot it from the videos below.
AAR damage with all the procs up
Apprentice could feel the warmth and the cold tickle of Chaos energies starting to surge thru her body. The most shun upon student in the University of Acane because of her devotion to Chaos magic - she was feeling that it was all worth it in the end. The excile, the loneliness and lack of human touch - all the sacrifices she has made, all to please one beautiful and frightening Witch God. The power inside of her started to become unstable, but Apprentice kept channeling it. At the very boiling point she released all of the charged up energy thru a tight beam of the red crackling light. A huge noise of wood and metal being shattered by an explosion made all the sleeping birds scatter from the nearby trees. Gates into the manor of Malakor were blown wide open.
