[3.5] Generic Cyclone Slayer



Hi, this my fourth build guide.

I do not claim my guide to be original or the best or even this build to be super efficient. I write guides mostly because I'm fond of my characters and I'd like to share them. (and cause I want to kill time)

Pros:
Fast map clearer. (Not the fastest)
Slayer leech.
Easy to get going.

Cons:
Cyclone discomfort on bosses.
Not the greatest single target.

Introduction
Spoiler


This is a generic cyclone build. Nothing fancy, and not something that really needs much explanation. It's really fast and mobile, easy to play, has good clear speed and really good sustain thanks to slayer leech.

Some key items that made me interested to play this:


Tons of flask duration, movement speed (= more clearspeed), 200% of Life Leech applies to Enemies as Chaos Damage = dot chaos dmg (approx 8k dot/s)


+2 weapon range, dmg, movement speed (= moar clearspeed).

It's not pure phys. I tried that, turns out using flasks and ele dmg is pretty good (who knew right?). I might actually try and turn this into a pure phys cyclone (maybe something bleed/retch synergy?) which I've wanted to make one for a long time, if it gets better.

Path of Building does not count the '200% of Life Leech applies to Enemies as Chaos Damage' from the Retch as of now. Our leech rate is 4150 hp/sec meaning we get deal 8300 chaos dmg/sec.

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

Budget option: Any phys two handed axe, Sinvicta's Mettle.


Helmet:

Movement speed, dex. Noice.

BIS - Cyclone attack speed.

I prefer Blood rage attack speed enchant cause it gives global attack speed (faster leap slap), for a 3% loss of ats.

Budget option: Regular Devotos are pretty cheap.


Chest:

I thought about Bronn's but we lose a TON of life for not that much dps gain. Also hard to color.

Budget option: Any rare chest, Tabula Rasa.


Gloves:

Dmg, bleed Explosions help with cleanup. Not hard to get desirable corruptions on.

BIS - Ele weakness on hit.

Budget option: Anything with life, resists.


Boots:

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

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.
