Looks like a fun build dude, good job coming up with something unique. I might roll this in warbands if I get around to making a new character.


Thanks alot, its alot fun to play to me.
Very interesting !!!!
I dropped a triple T1 Elemental thrusting sword a few weeks ago, and I was wondering what to do with it.
So I started to make my own build with the help of a few peeps.
I ended up with a Cycloner too, and since then I've been trying to maximize the DPS output.

Because my triple T1 Elemental sword has a shitty Crit roll, I went Resolute Technique (Hits can't be evaded).
I run Anger, Wrath, and then HoI+HoT or Determination (yeah 150% reservation !)
I run Blood Rage and have 7 Frenzy charges (I target 8 once I find a good corrupted amulet) to get a +28% MORE Damage, this is the biggest damage booster you can get !
I use Rallying Cry which gives a nice damage boost.
I use 2x Atziri promise flasks (I don't need a quicksilver, I use Whirling Blades + Fortify for movement.


I'm so jealous of you 75k DPS with only 4 damage gems !!!!
I can only reach ~40-45k DPS with Cycl/Conc.Effect/WED/AddedColdDmg/FasterAttacks/BM) with 20/20 gems (50k if I Dual Wield).


What I'm wondering is if your investment in AoE is worth.
Compared to my build, you have Amplify (+20%), +2 Range in weapons, 20% from Carcass and 37% Inc.AoE gem ! But when watching the video, despite your radius is the double of mine, I feel like it's still a very small radius compared to any other AoE Skill.
You should probably swap the Inc. AoE gems for a Added Cold or Added Lightning Dmg, you won't feel the radius difference and this will give a very nice DPS Boost !
Also, try with Rallying Cry and Atziri flasks as well, I'm pretty sure you can reach 100k DPS :)

Thing is he is already one shotting just about everything. It is cool to go all tooltip warrior and post on reddit, but why overkill a few mobs when he could kill a much bigger pack in the same amount of time.
It's not about packs, every build one-shot packs.
It's about dangerous rares/unique, Exiles, and bosses with crazy max affixes.

Cyclone base AoE is very small.
Increasing by 20+28+20+37 = 105% still make it small.
Removing the IncAoE gem still leaves 68% AoE increase.
I believe it won't change the gameplay, and provide a necessary DPS increase.
Why ?
Because I believe that the build doesn't have sufficient armour to survive the higher content, so if I would go with this build, I would maximize DPS and go for Vaal Pact which is only 3 points away in the tree. Life leech is not as strong as before, but it is still good.

I'm not playing the tooltip warrior at all (why would I made a Tanky 1H RT build then ?).
I myself have tried with and without Inc.AoE/Amplify, and found out that it was not necessary.
Being very fast and mobile is much more efficient.

But that's a personal preference, and I understand and accept that people may have a different point of view :)






i have a quick question : Is this better than the physical version with no range? Or it's just a different way to play ?

For me its is worth it with no doubt i did play normal cyclon and realy disliked it, i do have the option to swap area to conc for bosses. i havent had problems up to now, weaver as example dies before he can get up to his split phase even without conc.

Better or worse isnt the right point of view, its diffrent its more offensive but less defensive gear is probably cheaper since ele isnt played that much. And i value the area (clear speed) over damage.
added a new vid (gorge)

i didnt die to reflect yet but it hurts, since most of the damage is lightning a topaz flask may help.
