[3.7] Pure Phys Cyclone Slayer! 1M DPS! Starforge/ Kondos Pride! League Starter!
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS BUILD.
CHANGES WILL OCCUR, PLEASE DON'T COMPLAIN TO ME IF YOU HAVE TO END UP USING REFUND POINTS / BUYING NEW GEAR.
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.

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.

Why would you go RT when hitting Hit-Cap should be piss-easy this league and Slayer is one of the better classes for crit right now. Don't get me wrong, it's a solid build but I think you can get a lot more out of it, if you go crit. I would scrap Brutal Fervour + Endless Hunger and go for Overwhelm + Impact, especially impact since it's a cyclone build.
Not planning on going crit league, I might go impact purely for AOE, but I will have to see. I expect to see a lot of changes as I play through the league as always. That's also why I took RT as it adds one less worry about getting on the gear making it cheaper. Since I imagine accuracy is gonna be costly due to the amount of people going crit this league. I will see if I need the leech from endless hunger as I play.
Thanks for the Slayer variant, I played your Raider Cyclone during Beastiary & Betrayal. Will check this out as my 3rd or 4th character for Legion.
sry for dumb question, where we get onslaught here? i see it on PoB
Would you recommend playing this build as an berserker ?
Cannot wait to try this build out in Legion.

How are we getting endurance charges?
New channeling node that gives Endurance and Frenzy charges when hit called Charging Offensive
