[3.0] Fire Conversion Debeon's Dirge Cyclone WiP

Kia Ora,

First build guide.

This build uses the new Debeon's Dirge cold damage axe and converts the damage to 100% fire using Cold to Fire Gem (CtF) and either Avatar of Fire of Xoph's Blood Amulet.

By converting to fire you are now able to use the Izaro's Turmoil jewels for up to 50% increased damage jewels and there are a lot more scaling options.

Required Items
Spoiler


This item makes the build possible, great x-x cold, and the warcry bonuses are a great steroid for boss fights/in between packs.


Needed for the socket underneath the duelist start area, gives great inc cold damage. Only need 1


50% possible inc damage for 3 points is better than most weapon nodes on the tree, I use 4-5 of them in the build.



Nice to have items
Spoiler


Reduces the amount of travel you have to take on the skill tree, gives great damage. Is hideously expensive this league. Hopefully it comes down. The dream would be +1 curse so you can run flammability and ele weakness.


Really happy with this item on this build less of a downside since very little of your damage comes from phys converted to cold then to fire.


Awesome chest for this build, once again, very expensive this league, I managed to pick mine up early otherwise I wouldn't have it.


Running this along with Primeval force and the reflect pantheon power means you can run ele reflect maps no problem.


Great additional pen if you can balance your resists enough.

After finally getting xoph's I now have an int problem, until I get that sorted I've had to spend a few points on the tree to meet the int requirement of my gems, hopefully once I've sunk a bit more time and currency in to this build I can shift that on to better jewelry.

My goal tree will be something like this

Leveling/No Xophs
Spoiler

No issues leveling with the Duelist 2H phys and axe nodes until you get to a high enoug level to use Debeon's Dirge.

Just path up from Resolute Technique to AoF if you don't have Xophs, I got up to T13 maps quite comfortably before I got Xoph's, might be able to take it higher.


My gear
Spoiler





Links
Spoiler


Cyclone + CtF + Ele focus (swap with inc AoE) + Fire pen + Ele attacks + Ruthless

Warchief + Ctf + Ele focus + Ele attacks

Warcry, Anger, Blasphemy + Flammability

CwDT + Bloodrage + inc duration + immortal call

Instead of Anger I some times run haste in the place of Bloodrage for temp chain maps.

Berserker variant courtesy of Domosed, probably the better way to go for end game.

I've been juggling with this axe too, good to see you are having a go at it! How is the build feeling at the moment? Is it ok to interrupt the cyclone every 4 seconds?

Your tree is quiet stretched out, a lot of points are wasted on getting somewhere while you skip all the elemental nodes near templar. Also, I did not think of using cold steel before, great idea. You are under utilising it though? It should apply to all the axe nodes south of duelist and also left of marauder (if the jewel is not limited to 1).

I played around in path of building and you are right, berserker does give you more dps even without avatar of fire (just staying cold damage and using two cold steels). Sits at ~70k dps unbuffed with just the axe and no other gear. (cyclone, elemental hits, cold pen, elemental focus faster attacks.

I don't see this being any better or even close to any of the phys weapons. Even with Ancesteral warchief - berserker there are way better options out there. Still looking how to use this weapon best.

I would build something along these lines with cyclone but not convinced yet:
https://www.pathofexile.com/passive-skill-tree/3.0.0/AAAABAECAAHcBLMFLQd1E0wTyRQgFHUX4RjbGjghVSFgIZAkNyb4JyAnLyz7LlMwdzKJPAU9_ECgQzFG10d-Sn1OMlBHVbVXDVcpV-JYY1nzWf5aGl4TXz9f0GEhZFJlTWWnZlRnoGhlaPJvJ3GFcg9yqXTtdPF2rHfXd-N35Xloeu982X37ggeCm4TZhO-Fe4dqh3aKIozPj2CQVZBslG-aO5pqns2f36IAqSepbqmUrKquULFCvTa-p78IwGbApsEEwaPDM8NoxtjIzM9-0iHTb9rB3D3fb-Jh45_qEOoY7DjtIO8O73zvj_Af8kHzEfOb8932SPcy-F_46_5r?accountName=UnrulyGentleman&characterName=countingcontrol

Build is good, Normal Atziri is a breeze, clearing corrupted T13 maps just fine. Currently saving for a Xoph's heart so I can refund some of the nodes up the top of the tree.

I only really use the warcry steroid for bosses where i'm kiting a bit anyway, just map clearing my DPS is good enough without.

My tree is spread out to get as many Izarios Turmoils as possible, almost 50% increased damage for around 3 points per jewel socket is better than most other nodes I think.

I've had a play in PoB and picking up some more nodes underneath duelist with cold steel does give a nice DPS boost, will probably path down to wrecking ball soon.

Here is the PoB link for the build I'm aiming for. The DPS is quite high, in reality I'm sure it's not this good.

edit2: https://pastebin.com/HRtsxfuU this one is actually way better than the previous one i posted.

Playing this build atm, and it is really fun, so thanks for posting. Just wondering, are you able to do ele reflect maps? I haven't gotten to maps just yet to try it.
Hey , how would i go about leveling this character ?
I play this as the “normal“ cold version ans with ice bite and frenzy charges. Cold Steel 2 times so I can get onslaught for clearspeed with the left big axe node. Deidbellow is so strong. Guardians warcry node is a must imo. Otherwise u stun yourself every 4 secs. So onslaught + ascendency + deidbellow + axe is +70MS, +55IAS and 150% inc ele dmg. Insane with cyclone. :)

Cwdt + frostbomb for bosses. Tasalios Sign for flat ele bonus. But your fire Version seems pretty cool. Zerker was my (obvious) second choice.

I leveled just using the 2H nodes under duelist with wideswing/bloodreaper/koams. It was pretty comfy.

Yes, I can just do ele reflect maps now, I use the reflect pantheon, Sibyl's and primeval force node and don't have any issues.

try this build with zerker and duelist, zerker better for endgame bosses.
But duelist very cool for clearing maps.

UnrulyGentleman, can you add my variant to build?
I do not want make thread in Marauder category.I think better add Berserker variant in this post.

Added Berserker, I haven't found any issues with Ruthless, there are little indicators above the enemies when they are affected by a ruthless blow, it seems to be happening often enough.
