[2.1] "Cyclonus" Crit Bino Cyclone by fiqst







This is a dual wielding build that specialises in dealing massive critical damage. It offers impressive DPS and clear speed, high mobility and great survivability in mapping. It's great fun in a group and offers fast paced gameplay.

The weapon focus is on Bino's Kitchen Knife for its powerful regen properties, as well as its crit performance.

The offhand can any 1H weapon, but the best back-for-buck is definitely Doryani's Catalyst as it is easy to attain and the dps displayed in this build is easily replicated with unique weapons.

The mobility of Cyclone, and the auto-cursing from Blasphemy, creates a character for those who love to mix constant movement with high damage, while being perfectly safe.

Defence is purely dodge based with the keystones Acrobatics and Phase Acrobatics being the main defence.

Cyclone in 2.1

In 2.1 the mana cost of cyclone had dropped significantly from 150+ down to 42.

This allows a full 6L cyclone running on mana alone.

The Soul Taker as a staple of this build since its beginnings as a Blender variant, but it's also the limiter of the build's potential.

We can now equip a more powerful weapon as secondary, whether it be the best bang-for-buck, the Catalyst, or a 360pdps sword, or even a mirrored dagger.


Bino and poison


Poison operates differently since last expansion. It now only factors in physical and chaos damage for the poison damage, and ele damage is ignored.

This means the potent P2L+WED combo of the past, although significantly more damaging, will hinder poison damage and the subsequent regen.

The Fatal Toxins cluster will double the poison damage and doubles the regen rate, but i think it's overkill and more of a luxury choice if you can spare the nodes.


Alternate Max DPS version


This version maximises ele damage for sheer dps.
The downside is less poison performance and regen.

GRRBB G/B
Cyclone
Melee Physical Damage
Weapon Elemental Damage
Physical to Lightning
Conc. Effect
Inc AoE / Faster Attacks



741k dps with 2 weapons worth 2-3ex each. Not bad.

Obligatory ultra-dps version with a mirrored dagger:






So many strikes within one breath.
But only one strike needed, for certain death.
