2q1xcoh

Intro:
This build guide will be short, there will be no "cool story" about it.

Some facts:
Spoiler
Pro:
- Easy farm EVERYTHING including reflect;
- Easy to play;

Bad news:
- able to die by desync;
- need stronG PC to handle vaal cyclone;
- sometiems u can stuck on f******* table or other furniture when u spin across the map (big thx to level designers! >_<);
- u die if u dont have something for bleeding;

For this build u need:
Spoiler
- mana leeech at last 2% (for 30k DPS minimum - this depends what weapon u have);
- life leech at last 4-5%;
- flask's for bleeding and freeze;
- u need inteligence in gear/or waste passive skill for it;

Offence:

My Gear (also suggested gear) & GEMS:
Spoiler

My gear(in short):
Spoiler


Weapon:

Of course we want 6L Atziri's Disfavour on end game, but we can handle everything with even this (wich cost me 2ex for clean 6L and 4-6 chaos for crafting mods):


Helmet:
I realy like:

But u can also use:

Its good option beacose we can boost our aura gems, reduce reserved mana by that aura gems and we CANNOT BE FROZEN.

Chest:

I realy like mods in Daresso's Defiance but u can also use Kaom's Heart

Gloves:

This are trash gloves for most of ppl but they give strong dps boost and works like last mod from Daresso's Salute.

Amulet:
We want:


Rings:
I have:

U can use rings for balancing resists, gettin 2% mana leech, for increase life leech and of course increasing life.

Belt:

Like for most builds... Or rare crafted legacy Leather belt (if u like).

Boots:

U need triple resists at last 30%, move 25%-30%, life 70+ and must be armour...

IMPORTANT:

GEMS IN CHEST ARE PRETTY RANDOM BEACOSE I DONT REALY NEED THEM (Vaal Cyclone is for faster map farming).

If u dont have money for 6L Atziri's Disfavour, u dont have to buy 6L, u can buy even with just one link, just buy instead Daresso's 6L wich is slighty cheaper...

Maybe you could write a small lvl'ing guide on which order you are grabbing the key nodes?
is this viable for HC?
Really Nice Guide i will play this for Awakening new League.

I have two Questions

-How much Auras can u run with the new Reduced Mana Gem changes and wich one do u prefer - Hatred and HoA?
-Why do u use Ondars Clasp i mean u get every time at least a bit dmg because of melee Range and the xxx on Full Life does not work very well ?

A: I wouldnt recommend it yet for HC, its early version of my build. Also, im waiting for official patch (tree can be changed when 2.0 will be released - remember this is for beta tree).

A: Ty vm! Im happy u like it.
Q1: In 1.3 i was using ONYLY hatred and HoA(yes screw haste!), wich give me 41% of my mana free to use for cyclone (yes i prefer mana instead of blood magic, beacose of Ondars Clasp).
In 2.0 i didnt change my mind yet, but i will upgrade my guide, soon after 2.0 will be official. I just need to do more tests before i speak.

Q2: In 1.3 Odnars Clasp with vaal pact works just amazing! You say "a bit dmg"? No my friend this give me huge boost on dps! I had stable 100% HP when i was diving into the group of monsters.
Truth is, there was no useful gloves for cyclone 2H build. Vaal pact from passive tree in 1.3 made Atziri Acuity not necessary, so onyly racionable item in this slot was Odnars for dps boost or:
for increased leech
or just balanced option:
wich increase life, half but flat attack speed (comparing to Odnar) and 1% mana leech self crafted.
Another reason why Odnars - in cyclone 2H build u want:
- flat at last 50k dps;
- attack speed;
- leech life/mana;
- life 4k;
- increased range(range is not so important cosue 2H axe has highest range);
So increasing attack speed will made you able to use cyclone skill offten and leech life from ur physical damage also often (i can "cast" cyclone 2,8 times per 1 secound).

That was for version 1.3... now 2.0 is comming and there are new gloves wich made CYCLONE build even more powerful! Im talking here about:
Spoiler
Empire's Grasp
Goliath Gauntlets

This gloves are sick! Look at this mod:
"Knockback direction is reversed
Socketed Gems are Supported by level 15 Knockback"

This gloves + normal Cyclone = effect like Vaal Cyclone and this is way i will fallow with my new cyclone build. Atziri Acuity for 130ex? This new gloves will be worth more!

thx for the answer !

So, which Area in the Skill Tree would be the first to go when u level up RT->Increased Area->Duelist ?

Cyclone is able to use at 24lvl, so u need on 24lvl "Resolute Technique" u should focus on this patch:
26 skill points

After that i recommend to get all passives for less mana cost of skills (or u can skip that if ur gonna use blood magic anyway) and get passives from top area:
37 skill points

Next its up to you, i presented passive tree for 120 points but still everything depends what items u currently have. So if u don't have enough life leech or u feel u need more damage instead of life, fallow closest path in tree to get that goal.

Next "bus stop" would be gettin Vaal Pact. It was great in 1.3 and it more powerful in 2.0. They changed location of Vaal Pact and we have to waste[1] now some points for dexterity(around 6 sic!) but still we can get instant leech - so i think its worth it.

waste[1]
Spoiler
Beacose i dont see any passives around that path wich we can use for cyclone - this is so bad... Just look at my short review:
28u1t0z


Another useful things in my skill tree are:
Profan Chemistry and Juggernaut this give us 70% increased Life Recovery from Flasks but if ur using flask's with instant recovery u can skip that and use points for other life nodes.

And once agien my tip is:
Always calculate which one path would be better to fallow at first point, beacose u wont get exactly same items as author of bulid u fallow.

And:
Weapons that i use before i get Atziri's Axe:
Limbsplit
Reaper's Pursuit

after that i bought Atziri's Axe - but i had money for it, before you earn exalts for that u can use:
Kaom's Primacy
