Yeah, you did not had your PoB properly configured (no Wither config, no Consecrated Ground and Culling workaround). Here is your fixed pob:

[3.9] Scourge Arrow Poison Prolif Pathfinder - Fast, tanky, easy and fun to play, beginner friendly
[3.9] Power Siphon/Kinetic Blast Poison Prolif Pathfinder - Very fast and tanky poison wander

Ok thanks, I guess the rest is just lower Crit multi and lower rank spell+chaos craft on sceptre.

I would just like to say - I started the league with this build and managed to:

-Complete the atlas
-Beat Uber elder (Not deathless, first time even took me 2-3 fragment sets untill I learned the fight mechanics, now I can do it in 1-3 portals).
-Made overall probably over 50ex (With some help from currency flipping)
-Completed 26 Achievements.

Fun fact - I started the build as a hybrid life/energy shield (Eldrich battery+Mind over matter) with Disintegrator and once I got all the currency and equips (Couple of days/weeks of live searching and crafting) I switched to full ES CI.

My hybrid life/es felt abit better with bigger AOE, but the full ES version feels way tankier.

Will probably get this guy to lv.95-96 and roll some caster.

Thanks for the build!

Hi,

well, the staves version is using exactly same gem set as shield/sceptre, you just swap from Shield Charge to Phase Run.

Hi, just wanted to say that I am LOVING the build! It's so fun. Click button - lawnmower enemies. It's absolutely a joy, thanks for the guide!
Currently running with 8600 ES and this build still feels week. Not enough ES steal or damage or defenses I don't know, but I was destroyed by the small bosses before Upper Atziri...

Would you please check my build and suggest how to improve it .
How do you guys deal with the horrible BV aoe size?

Its borderline unplayable for mapping.

I've swapped Cyclone for Storm Burst. Clear speed is far better now. Cyclone's damage is crap anyway. Storm Burst and BV synergize very well together, especially in single target DPS. Otherwise, I can burst down mobs over there while the ones near me run at me to their deaths.

I mean, such a simple swap from Cyclone to Storm Burst. That's all it takes to take this build to the next level. I tried Winter Orb as well, but the DPS wasn't as good.

Also, I changed some things on the tree. For one, I took increased skill duration nodes for BV especially.

Secondly, I took the node that allows for two curses because I also took the nodes that reduce mana reservation so that I could run Wrath, HoI, and Discipline. I tried HoA, but I realized I couldn't use Curse on Hit with it, which is really necessary for my build. I use Warlord's Mark and Assassin's Mark for the DPS and sustain. The added endurance charges help with immortal call.

Lastly, I see some people taking vortex for cast when hit, but I took Tempest Shield + Immortal Call + Increased Duration. Seems far better defensively. It also adds DPS. Tempest shield lasts over 20 seconds and is refreshed every time I block or proc it when hit. I consider it better to Purifying Flame in every way for an ES leech build. 6% ES per second is not helpful compared to increased block % and DPS. I leech back full ES in less than a second, so it's unnecessary for me.

I use phase run with arcane surge + increased duration. Arcane surge lasts over 20 seconds.

Current ES is 7.8k because I took more DPS and ES Leech nodes. The only way I die is if I get 1 shotted, which happens rarely. I have taken a direct hit from the Minotaur and lived. I've downed all bosses except Uber Atziri and Uber Elder because I haven't had the chance to fight them yet :-\

Just some ideas for people here. You gotta make this build your own.

After watching a streamer playing the Slayer Cyclone build everyone plays I decided to roll one.

I'm only level 81 now and with "chaos-level" stuff (excepting for the 6L Belly and a sword purchase I just made) but I'm already doing more damage than the lvl 92 trickster following the OP build.
The AoE radius is a lot bigger too. The life + ES pool is smaller but the physical damage mitigation is better, has endurance charges and leaches more life so overall it still has good survivability.
The Leap Slam feels smoother than Shield Charge and can cross obstacles. (maybe it can be an improvement to the OP build)
Also it can do phys & elemental reflect maps.

Thank you thedeathbeam for the time invested in this original build but, sadly, it's a bit under-powered in this league
