[3.18] Shockwave Cyclone Build | Occultist | Sentinel | Path of Exile 3.18

Hey guys, here is the str stacking shockwave cyclone occultist build. I've played this build in expedition league but that was non-crit version. This time I wanted to try crit version.
Using Replica Alberon's Warpath Boots and this item gives us "Adds 1 to 80 Chaos Damage to Attacks per 80 Strength". We build around this item. We can only deal chaos damage and occulist is a great for choice for that.

Non-Crit Version: https://youtu.be/YcOWgo5UG00

Build Cost
- Hight Budget: +50 ex

Split Personality: We can use two of them. Check the video or pob to see where you put them.
+5 to Strength
+5 to maximum Life

Fortify: Overlord (Large cluster)

Lethal Pride: Names or numbers don't matter. Just look for 5% increased Strenght mod.

Eyes of the Greatwolf: I had one with "26% increased Attributes" and " 40% increased Spell Damage" mod. Attribute mod is required, try to get higher rolls. For the second mod: (If you can't find one with the spell damage)
- (19-31)% increased Chaos Damage
- (20-30)% increased Attack Damage
- (40-50)% increased Global Critical Strike Chance
- (6-10)% increased Attack and Cast Speed
- (8-12)% increased maximum Life
- +(24-36)% to Global Critical Strike Multiplier

Leveling: You have to level up with something else. I recommend you level with spellslinger ed/contagion with 6l blight setup until level 68 or 70. Leveling gems and trees are in the video.

Leveling Uniques:
- Tabula Rasa
- Poet's Pen
- Praxis (x2)
- Goldrim
- Lochtonial Caress
- Belt of the Deciever
- Karui Ward

Looks fun, can you give a quick walkthrough of how you are using the various skill gem mechanics?
Hectic builds man, played explosive concoction build you did awesome leveling through to end game this looks mint.
Why spell damage on the amulet? I thought you were doing chaos damage to attacks.

Battlemages Cry Gem
yea, what about it

Just waned to say awsome build, im currently running it atm.
But looking at the youtube video @Gems in the skill tree, i see u run a different route than you have on the PoB.

Into Attack Mastery, any way you can update the PoB for 3.18?
