[3.10] Starforge Cyclone Slayer



3.10 changes:

-> Changed from RT (and overleech) to crit.
-> Finally pgraded my chest.
-> Cluster notables (Delirium jewels): Precise Focus, Hex Breaker, Rapid infusion. (In order of importance to get. I don't think they're worth it unless you have perfect 4 stat cluster jewels)


Note: Please post all your questions in this thread or come by the stream, don't pm me in game. Make sure your profile is PUBLIC before asking for help so your character is visible. If you have issues with the trees and you're loading them into the poe website, don't. Import them into Path of Building. Please check out the FAQ section before asking questions.

I don't claim my guides to be original or super efficient. I write guides to share characters I'm fond of.

Gameplay on youtube, or if I stream.

=======================================================================

Pros:
Okay map clearer.
Great single target.
Easy to get going.

Cons:
Expensive to get the chest. (which is a big defensive boost)
Not very fast at clearing.


Introduction
Spoiler


This is a pure physical cyclone build. It clears well, is easy to play, has good single target.

You can easily swap in Devoto's and The Retch, to clear map faster. Use a rare helmet and Ryslatha's if you want more single target.


PoB
Spoiler

I'm using LocalIdentity's fork

https://pastebin.com/cnD54Ya2

The PoB includes normal trees and cluster trees. The cluster jewels in the pob are perfect and still barely worth it imo.

Weapon:

Good corruptions: +2 Weapon Range, Flat phys, 30% Quality.

Budget option: Any phys two handed sword, Kondo's, Doomsower.


Helmet:
Spoiler


Buy/Craft one with life and nearby enemies take increased phys. You need an elder base (ilvl 85) for it.

BIS - Blood rage attack speed enchant.


You can use a Devoto's instead for the clearspeed.

Budget option: Any rare helmet.


Chest:
Spoiler



If you're a new player, make sure you know what you're doing before you craft this:

The idea is, you get two chests, one with the first mod you want and another with the 2nd. One of the two chests has to be an astral plate for the final result to be an astral plate. The 3 good mods we want are:

-> Phys explody
-> +x% to Crit
-> -15 to mana cost of skills

Let's say you want crit (Hunter) + explody (Crusader). Then you want to buy a Hunter's/Crusader's Astral plate with crit/explody mods(respectively) as on the only influenced mod on it. Or Buy the base and roll the mod yourself, alterations are the most cost effective AFAIK. Check poedb for the ilvl requirements. Once you have either crit/explody on one chest (as the only influenced mod), you buy/craft the other chest with the other mod in the same way as above. Make sure one of the bases is an astral plate.

Then you awakener's orb the shit base chest on the astral plate and pray. If you're lucky you'll hit high flat life/%life and some res, at the very least have an empty prefix to craft life. If it comes out as garbage, sell it (they should sell for a fair amount, even just those two mods) and retry once you can afford it.

Budget option: Any rare chest, Belly of the Beast. Tabula Rasa.


Gloves:
Spoiler


Get any life/res gloves with enfeeble on hit as the corruption. Ideally an armour base. These are probably the easiest to get the corruptions on.

BIS - Enfeeble on hit.

Budget option: Anything with life, resists.


Boots:
Spoiler


Lots of life, resists, as much movement speed as you can get.

BIS - 16% increased Attack and Cast if you've killed recently.


Amulet:
Spoiler


Life, flat phys, multi, int, crit.

Anoint Tenacity.

Budget option: Anything with life, res, int.


Belt:
Spoiler


Pretty much BIS for any phys/phys to ele conversion attack build. Look for 40% max roll and 30% min roll.


You can use The Retch for clearspeed.

Budget option: Anything with life, res.


Rings:
Spoiler


Life, accuracy, resists, int.

Steel best base. Flat phys to attacks/attack speed are a bonus.

Budget option: Anything with life, res, int.


Flasks:
Spoiler




Replace the quicksilver with Bottled faith for single target.

You could replace the silver flask with anything else. Upto you.


Jewels:
Spoiler



Watcher's eye with 'Impales you inflict last 2 additional Hits while using Pride' is big.



Gem Links

You can run Inc AOE for clear instead of infused chanelling.

FAQ:
Spoiler

I'm dying too much, don't have enough damage, can't do T16s deathless.
Spoiler

Check your CDWT gem levels. Check the PoB. The ones linked to CDWT are kept at low levels intentionally so they proc more often.

Are you level 90 (at least)? Do you have 6k EHP? Do you have at least 18/20 gems? Are you following the tree? If not, then do those.

If yes, then make sure your profile is public and let me know, I'll try and take a look. More often than not, it's because your character is lvl 83 with shit gear, improvised passive choices, missing uber lab and 18/0 gems.


Mana issues!
Spoiler
Get a -3 mana cost craft on your ring. If you're still struggling with mana, use a warlord chest with -15 to mana cost and socket your cyclone 6L in it.


Is this good as a league start/SSF? Budget option for starforge?
Spoiler
Yes.

You can use a Kondo's Pride to start out with.

Cherrubim's does nothing for us. We easily hit leech cap, so the leech is useless. The life is lesser than a belly and the retch chaos damage is not scaled by anything.

Can you do all content with this build?

Yes. However I don't suggest using this build to do endgame stuff like Uber Elder or more difficult bosses.

Slayer leech is very powerful for its survivability, but cyclone feels uncomfortable for mechanical bosses and the single target of this build is not great for endgame. It's definitely doable but I wouldn't suggest it.
