VictorDoom's 2h Staff Cycloner(Uber killer) [Updated 1.3]

This is the first character to kill uber atziri as 2h Melee(build for ubers is at the bottom)

Thought id share the build and make little guide since people have been asking for it




With this build you will have 7k life with a rare chest, along with around 500 life regen per second and you will be doing well over 30k dps with a cheap 10 chaos staff






Currently level 94, build:





Unfortunately i have to spend 2 points to get the +30 dex nodes so i can run bloodrage, ideally i would have put those points in Amplify

Build progression:



What gear to focus on:
Spoiler

The build doesnt require any uniques to work well even though i use some very expensive ones, it works just as fine without them since most of the dps and life comes from the acutal tree, with a 400pdps crit staff you can reach 30k+ dps.

Without any unqiue chest you will have at least 7k life and almost 700 life regen per second, with a kaoms you will sit at around 8.5k, more than enough to survive anything really, my legacy kaoms is just overkill.


The build requires quite a bit of dex to run bloodrage, so make sure you get some on rings and amulet so you dont have to spend unecesarry points on the tree like i did.

A staff with good physical damage is the main dps of the build, you also want a crit mod on it so you crit more often, around 400 phsyical dps on it is enough to get you to 30k cyclone tooltip easily, 400 pdps staffs are pretty common and relatively cheap.

Amulet i recomend crit multiplier on it, some flat phys damage if you can since it scales nicely, or osme crit chance,life or accuracy and resistances if necesarry

Rings just need life, resistances and dex, if you are rich you can get increased attack speed and flat phys damage on them if you want

Boots just any random boots with life and movement speed are good.

Gloves just life, resists and if you can attack speed is nice here, maligaros are awesome and acuities if youre very rich. Acuities are not necesarry because reflect isnt dangereous since you have CWDT-end cry-ic setup



Gem Links:
Spoiler

4 link cyclone: Cyclone-BM-MPD-concentrated effect
5 link cyclone: Cyclone-Bm-MPD-conc effect-Physical to lightning
6link cyclone: Cyclone-BM-MPD-Conc effect-Physical to lightning-Added fire

Cast when damage taken(level 20)-enduring cry-Immortall call-increased duration

BloodRage-BM-Leap Slam-Faster Attacks(replace leap slam and faster attacks with increased duration and enhance if you like)

Auras: Reduced Mana-Hatred-Herald of Ash-Haste OR as a third aura you can use Reduced mana-Herald of Thunder+curse on hit+assassins mark which is awesome cause you get free power charges, epscially good with hegemony era.






My gear,gem links and screenshots of dps/defense(as i said above, you dont need any of these unqiues or an insane staff)
Spoiler



Life:10.5k
Tooltip dps:85k(170k real dps)

You dont need acuities either reflect is no problem even without them because you have the cwdt -ic setup



Dps and life screenshot with a 10 chaos staff (400 pdps, didnt even quality it to prove my point) and it has no crit mod, with a lightning coil (70 life):
http://i.imgur.com/TWfa93w.jpg
used a lightning coil because i dont have any other linked armor, on 5 links the dps is 25k

The dps will be slightly lower now since the screens are from before the cyclone attack speed nerf, but it will be close to these anyway







Bandit Rewards:
Spoiler

Normal diffculty take the skill point (the 40 flat life only translates to about 120 acutal life, i dont think its worth it)

Cruel take Oaks 18% IPD

An merciless take Oaks endurance charge or skill point depending on how tanky you want to be, i took the charge. Take the power charge if you plan on using hegemonys era, in which case you should also take the power charge on the tree.


Uber atziri run:
Spoiler
its long as hel and full of mistakes since it was one of my first uber runs and im not a very good player, in retrospect i could have just leap slammed over thre trash mobs and cut the clear time to like 10-15 minutes

Build DO NOT USE THIS BUILD FOR NORMAL ATZIRI OR MAPS BECAUSE ITS ONLY GOOD FOR UBER AND NOTHING ELSE

Thank you for making this guide~
Animalistic in nature, somebody help me
Thanks for sharing your build victor, I might go for a staff build next. How does this staff look like, usable or vendor trash? And what should I craft on it? Crit or hybrid phys?


Also, one more question, doesn't the knockback from critting with a staff interfere with cyclone effectiveness?
For try, for see, and for know.

This is a buff

I think you can use it, i would craft crit on it.

by just eyeballing it if you get a decent crit mod wit the master on it you should be at around 30k cyclone tooltip with it, assuming you have a 6link, if just 5link around 25k i think.
Still a lot of dps considering a staff like this you can find pretty easily or buy cheaply

THe knocback on crit doesnt really bother cyclone so much, you sometimes push enemies around if they can take a lot of damage, if nothing else itll just give you a chuckle

How does this build do against reflect without Acuity?
Also what would you change to use groundslam (I imagine getting amplify) instead of cyclone?

Same thing, since you have CWDT level 20 linked with inc duration and endu cry the first hit will put you on immortall call for a few seconds in which you get your life back, this is how all builds deal with reflect even without acuities.

I would have gotten amplify for cyclone too, unfortunately i have to spend 2 points on getting the dexterity :(

As for Groundslam its the same thing but the links would be: Groundslam-BM-Multistrike-Critical damage-Melee physical damage-faster attacks.
