[3.4] Meka's PoisonClone - stick your starforge deep build

- you can NOT facetank the big hits of this game, you NEED to know the mechanics, its an evasion build with 6-7k life and 75/75/75 res!
- 210-250 movespeed is fast (i know some labrunners are laughing in 600+ms) but for a beginner this is rly fast
- the build costs start quite managable but can end REALY high

- if still interested...fine...cause its also the most fun build i have this league ^^

Hi Delvers and Delverinins,

after a break for 1 league...i am back...

since one day...when my totem guy died in lab cause he couldnt leech by himself...i never wanted to play something "passiv" again...and nothing too squishy...and it should be something like THE ARPG skill CYCLONE...so i always tried cyclone in different more or less good ways...this one should be my SECOND guide...and please apologize possible mistakes here, english is not my nativelanguage ^^

For those of you who say "Build still in progress, how dare can he say ALL VIABLE...i play this game pretty long now and played many builds, made many builds in POB and ingame...alot of cycloners...and i've cleared all content on way worse builds)

But here is the PoB Pastlink + My Current Char/Progress




All 4 Elder Guardians and Elder, all shaper guardians deathless, shaper and uber elder will follow soon (some realy swetty moments, cause like i told ya, this build WILL die if you don't pay attention!)

Delve at 350~ currently but absolutly NO problems yet...

this build was build for fast and deep mapping and delving and currently shines just EVERYWHERE...realy i enjoy doing every content with it so for



+ high clearing speed at maps, delves, everything, pretty good and stable damage with cyclone for everything up to T 16 bosses where your vaal double strike comes in handy (PoB DPS realy seem to be massiv wrong cause this char feels and plays a lot stronger than the mentioned dps...)
+ fun! its cyclone ...who doesnt love cyclone in an acion rpg loot game :D
+ can do everything on a OK budget of 10-15 ex, but if you are an oligarch of POE you can bring this build to a realy sick one
+ You hate seeing your Totems and Minions and Spectres and RF Poopsphere of Fire and Pokemon and Justin Bieber killing everyone? You want to kill everything with your own hands, with a fairly simple and effective build? then this is for you!

- you want to do more than holding 1 mouse button and 4-5 flasks ^^
- you still cry in AOE nerf of cyclone
- idk...realy i love the build so don't know what you couldnt like about it? ^^
