[3.7] Pure Phys Cyclone Raider! 1M DPS! Starforge/ Kondos Pride! League Starter!
Hi. This build has completed some of the hardest content the game has to offer. It has beaten all shaper guardians, red elder, every unique map boss in the game, two of the delve bosses at depth 270, the Shaper himself, and so much more.
This build is a perfect league starter, you can do it with only about 30 chaos. Kondo's pride is a great place holder until you can afford a starforge.
I played this build as my league starter in delve and betrayal.
This build also has the capability to scale amazingly well. You can dump 100+ exalts and still see substantial results.
The only map mod the build can't do is no leech. (If playing duelist version) If you are playing the ranger version of the tree, Physical reflect and No leech are the mods you can't do.
Update (3.7) Cyclone has gotten massive changes this league along with every other melee skill in the game. We have gained massive AOE improvements alongside sustaining life and the ability to gain endurance charges.
This league is better than ever to play cyclone alongside all these changes that will improve the quality of life massively.
KEEP IN MIND THAT THE DUELIST VERSION IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. CHANGES WILL MOST DEFINITELY OCCUR. THEY COULD BE BIG OR SMALL. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Leveling Tips and Uniques
While leveling you can use many melee skills such as cleave, frost blades, sunder, wildstrike, and so many more.
One of the main things you should do is not spec into any of the weapon specific nodes until near endgame or when you have a weapon that will last you a long time. Typically you want to remain dynamic with your weapon choices so your not locked in.

Build has been massively updated based on the feedback from me playing it extensively in the delve league. I have beaten shaper, red elder, and every single map boss on the atlas except uber elder, which I plan to fight tomorrrow.
This build has got me to 280 depth level and I plan to take it even further.
If you give it a try, be sure to drop by in my twitch channel or here and let me know how you like it.
Feedback is appreciated. Thanks in advance and have fun.

i want to try your build
what's the defence layer of this build and why you use that chest?

Yea, I'm still working on adding all the extra pieces to the build (Updated gameplay, Combat stats, and a lot others) but I just haven't had the time to do that yet. Defense layer is mostly a mix of EV/Armor with the focus primarily being EV. 6K HP is my current health pool at 92.
We use carcass jack for the best way of getting more damage, more life, more AOE, and more res. It's truly a great chest.
In ur PoB u have selected ''Is the Enemy Shocked''. Which gives a big dmg boost.
But pure phys dmg can not Shock, so u need from the Tree chance to shock or the Boots Enchant ''10% chance to Freeze, Shock and Ignite if you haven't Crit Recently''
Angry Roleplayer explain this in his Cyclone Build Guide.
Starforge have the stat, but u need 1 point with chance to Shock, than u ''can'' shock.
Near Amplify is a Point with 5% chance to Freeze, Shock and Ignite. (Holy Dominion)

Yea, I've been working on getting the boot enchant (feelsUnluckyMan), I must've forgot to include it in the pastebin. Thanks for reminding me. :)

Build has been updated both for viewing pleasure and also mechanically.
I've also remade the video to feature the new gear because the old one was so vastly outdated it's not even funny.
