Dark One’s conquers new grounds and achieve discovering new uncharted territory on the dangerous land of Vinland, full of acid vines. Dark One found another threat - dangerous cult of shamanism using corrupted totems. Dark One prevails and thus unities the land.
So this is interesting take on Dark One set, using full acid/poison totems and vines, combined with many procs. Build have 100% vitality to acid conversion. It’s not the strongest Dark One build and it’s certainly the glassiest of them all but it’s fun character with one of the most devastating AoE damages.

Key is Dark One set, target farmable one. Also are used Conduit, Medal and Weapon for Grasping Vines mode.
Off-Hand. Contagion for -RR proc and overall nice stats.
Rings. Double Shuroth are rare but also super nice here with their procs and conversion.
Belt. OK belt with conversion and OA. Unlike most acid builds, here acid resistance is welcomed.
Relic. Meditation is hard to beat. Full flat acid on the proc and nice % acid damage.
Pants&Boots. Acid items in this slot don’t give me much value, so I took generic casters items.
I use Biting Blades from component despite low casting speed and Purified Salt to deal with these pesky aetherials and some of them like Alex have monster resistance to acid damage.
I like to experiment wit devotions. So took Aeon+Dying God and few procs. Guardian’s Gaze on BBlades is proven concept, also took Fetid Pool, since I haven’t use it before and don’t play retal builds. Proc is probably "shitty’’ but nodes are fine and I have full vitality conversion.
Build have nice absorb, some healing from Wendigo and Dark One’s set proc but it’s fairly susceptible to big damage hits and bigger streaks of attacks, since life steal isn’t that impressive. In Crucible biggest issues are MadQueen and wave 170 in particular. Alex is mega slow even with Salt. Kaisan isn’t much of a problem actually. Rest of enemies are dying in a flash
Times are around 6:25 on average. My fastest run is 5:54!
