Notes:


Cyclone Changes

In 2.1 Cyclone mana costs have dropped a massive amount, down from 150+ to 41!

This means we can have a full 6L cyclone running on mana alone.

The tooltip has also been made more accurate to the true power of the skill. We don't have to "multiply by 2" to work out dps.


Inc AoE / Conc Effect

Conc effect gives a significant dps boost but you'll find yourself chasing enemies a lot.

Increased AoE will maximise your range and the fact that you'll one shot mobs anyway with or without conc effect, its the clear speed winner.


Faster Attacks / Hypothermia


Hypothermia is a deceptively powerful gem won't show in your tooltip but offers a massive 39% MORE damage to chilled enemies.

The utility leap slam will guarantee an AoE chill effect on targets, so Hypothermia is activated on Ice Crash from the first attack.



Spirit/Vitality Void

This cluster just above IR is excellent:



It will allow leeching from all sources of damage so we're able to equip P2L+WED for maximum damage and be able to leech.

Spirit Void solves all mana problems, even with 6L cyclone

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

another "broken" build by fiqst, i like how you "think outside of the box" with those gems setups... could would make a 2h flicker strike build next time?
another nice build of yours again...

Nice trees but unrealistic for me since you've used all 123 points.
