[3.20] Shockwave Cyclone Build | Slayer | Forbidden Sanctum | Path of Exile 3.20
Hey guys, shockwave cyclone slayer build is here. Using forbidden flame/flesh jewels to get another ascendancy point. I feel like Master of Metal from Champion is the best choice for the build.

- Medium Budget: 20-50 div
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. It causes the supported skill to be restricted to staves and maces.
Mana: "Socketed Attacks have # to Total Mana Cost" mod on body armour solves the mana problem.
Fortify: Overlord (Cluster notable)
- Dread Banner (+30%)
- Cane of Kulemak (+45%)
- Skill tree (+30%)
Forbidden Flame/Flesh: "Master of Metal" from Champion.
Leveling: Start with ground slam and keep playing until level 68 then switch to cyclone - shockwave setup. Leveling gems and trees are in the video. (Use a two-handed axe while leveling because staff nodes are way up there and all crit related.)
- Limbsplit (Lvl 13-33) - Reaper's Pursuit (Lvl 33-68)
- Tabula Rasa
- Karui Ward, Daresso's Salute
- Le Heup of All
- Seven-League Step
- Belt of the Deceiver
Build Video: https://youtu.be/1D0sMQfwiro
Bandits: Kill All (Alira is fine too)
- Flesh and Stone now causes you to take 11–15% less Damage from Attacks from Enemies that aren't nearby while in Sand Stance at gem levels 1–20 (previously 9–11%)
- The Reservation Mastery that granted 15% increased Mana Reservation Efficiency of Skills has been removed from the Passive Skill Tree.
You may run into some problems after the changes.
Problem: Can't use all auras with this setup now because 15% mana reserve mastery is gone.
Solution: Get the Determination has 25% increased Mana Reservation Efficiency mastery and lower the precision level to 16.
- Curse changes:
(Footage is from 3.18)
Cyclone - Shockwave - Melee Physical Damage (Awakened) - Infused Channeling (Anomalous) - Pulverise - Brutality (Awakened)
Blood and Sand - Flesh and Stone - Pride - Determination - Dread Banner - Enlighten (Lvl 3)
Vaal Ancestral Warchief - Maim - Multiple Totems - Ancestral Protector (Phantasmal)
Leap Slam - Lifetap - Assassin's Mark - Mark on Hit
Molten Shell (Anomalous) / Berserk / Blood Rage / Precision (Lvl 16)

Love the build!
I´m playing ssf, so its not so easy to get some of the gear.
Maybe someone can help me with this questions:
- is there a cheap way to get the boots with "cannot be frozen/chilled"?
Basically i need a prefix from Veiled Chaos Orb and i know i can save my suffixes with crafting... but this is so expensive. Is there somehow a better way to craft this?
- How to get Abyssus?
Is this really just a random drop? It feels super hard to find this item.
Can i get it with slamming Ancient Orbs on a unique Helmet?
- Same question for the Belt
I´m just a small ssf-grinder, so pls forgive me if my questions are stupid.

Hello this version will be up to date for 3.19?
How is this build for this league? (3.19)

Feels like shit. You can not tank anything from uber bosses that is spell/elemental damage related, since you can't get 100% spell suppression, and resistance is just not enought. For maps its OK the most parts, but some nemesis mobs will still one hit you from offscreen time to time.
To obtain the Frozen & Chilled and other benefits more easily, you can opt for the Delirium Jewell called The interrogation small jewel, it is easier than getting those bonuses, even though it is generally in 4 or 5 Divones this league, it is not something impossible to get.
Abbysus have aleatory drop and the truth is that I don't remember if the belt was too, but once I remember that they dropped it on me during the acts
You would increase your DPS if you separate the links between the two totems. Of the two new combinations, multiple totem+warchief is the highest dps.
You will die if you get sneezed on it seems with this build. Any end game boss looking at you will one shot you from orbit.
Cyclone builds have been crappy for a while now unless you spend tons on gear. Its unfortunate as i really like these builds.

Hi, liking this build so far. How are you using Berserk, I may have missed something while reading the guide. How are you generating rage?
Edit: found it, on gloves.
