[3.16] Shockwave Cyclone Build | Slayer | Scourge | Path of Exile 3.16

Hey guys, here is another cyclone build but this time I used shockwave support. Shockwave really boosts our damage and helps with clear. Map mods are not a problem for this build can do them all.
I finally have a chance to use new item "Cane of Kulemak Serpentine Staff" with this build and it's really a strong item considering its price.

Build Cost
- Medium Budget: 10-50 ex

Shockwave: Shockwave Support is a support gem that causes the supported attack skill to release a Shockwave on hit, dealing attack damage to enemies around the enemy.

Lethal Pride: We don't get any keystones so names or numbers don't matter just look for useful mods such as:
- 10% chance to Intimidate Enemies for 4 seconds on Hit
- +15% to Melee Critical Strike Multiplier
- 20% increased Physical Damage
- 20% increased Melee Damage
- 10% increased Effect of Fortify on you
- 5% chance to deal Double Damage

Mana: My body armor has "Socketed Attacks have # to Total Mana Cost" mod so cyclone has no mana cost and for other skills I used lifetap support.

Fortify: Overlord notable allows us to gain fortify on melee hit.

Pulverise or Infused Channeling?
Infused channeling only affects cyclone. If you use infused channeling you'd be tankier but deal less damage.

Bandits: Kill all (Alira is fine too)

- Slayer
Headsman: Now called Bane of Legends.
Bane of Legends: Now called Headsman.
- Cyclone:
Now deals 59% of Base Damage, and has 59% Effectiveness of Added Damage at gem level 20 (previously 54%).
- Maim:
Now has a 140% Cost and Reservation Multiplier (previously 115%).
Supported Skills now deal 10-19% more Physical Damage (previously 15-30%).
Enemies Maimed by Supported Skills now take 10% increased Physical Damage (previously 10-14%).

- Flesh and Stone has been changed back to a 25% Reservation as a result of the changes made to Blind. It also now has “Enemies Maimed by this Skill take 8% increased Physical Damage” at gem level 1 (previously 13%), up to 11% at gem level 20 (previously 16%).

(Footage is from 3.14)

Crit Chance I suposse...
Hi, I want to make this build at Standard. Can i make this work without that large cluster with "FUEL THE FIGHT, MARTIAL PROWESS AND OVERLORD? That cluster costs 100ex in standard lol
hiya using your build in 3.15

what's a good level to switch from ground slam to Cyclone

Thanks in advance
What are your thoughts on being Champion instead of Slayer for the additional improvement on impale and having perma Fortify? Is it worth it or is Slayer just that much better?
Going to try this build out. Looks promising.
