|3.7][Budget] BeyBlade Tank - 500k+ Facebreaker Cyclone DPS



This build allows you to clear all the content with a very cheap stuff.

Cyclone has been buffed with 3.7, so we will use the new flat physical added on the skill with Facebreaker gloves. Those gloves allows you to DPS without any weapon, just take a shield and you're good to go :)

I have currently + 1 million DPS with my stuff (without counting counter-attacks DPS). I'm using the Bronn's Lithe version.

Mandatory items :



- The shield MUST have the explicit Gain an endurance,frenzy or power charge when you block.
- The % max life on block is very important too, it will make you almost immortal in large packs, will allow you to tank all attacks with multi hits and will give you a very good survavibility in Delve
- Enfeeble on hit implicit on facebreaker is not mandatory but very very good

Pros :
- Good clearspeed
- Tanky
- Delve-friendly (see video)
- Can do all content
- Easy gearing choice since there is a lot of resist in the tree
- Up to 79% Attack & Spell block
- Max Resistances : 77/76/76

Cons :
- Can't do Physical reflect maps

Stats :
- DPS on shaper : 500k+
- Life : 5k+
- Block : 60%+
- Movement speed : up to 70%

Keep in mind those stats are for the budget version, so it's very upgradable !

Leveling :

From level 1 to 15 :

From level 16 to 27 :
Spoiler
Get Facebreaker gloves and use the Infernal blow skill. Also get the counter-attacks skills Riposte and Reckoning. Remember to use a shield and no weapon when you equip Facebreaker (deactivate Auto-equip option or else you won't be able to keep the weapon slot empty)

From level 28 to 68 :
Spoiler
Start using the Cyclone skill. You won't need anything else for the leveling, since the flat physical damage on cyclone will be enough to bring you up to Zana and start mapping :)

I made a Budget version of the stuff, and added my current items in another set so you can see how I upgraded it (you can switch the sets in the items section). The budget version can be obtained easily in less than 20 chaos !

Great guide, i was expecting something like this that uses both block skills to deal damage. Good job.

Also wouldn't using war banner would be good since it makes enemies take more physical damage even though we dont need accuracy? We can put herald of purity, pride, blood and sand into one gear with enlighten, we can put both riposte and reckoning into one gear with melee physical and brutality(we can use silver flask for onslaught).

This way we can use war banner and will obtain another socket space.

Also can you send your current pob so we can check stuff? Damage seems very low on the one you sent.

You can check my progress by importing my character if you want, it will be always up to date this way :)

Account name : mayo
Character name : MayoBeyblade
Here is my current POB : https://pastebin.com/iTfWjbUK

Be sure to check Frenzy, Endurance & Challenger charges and Fortify, I am actually around 600k+ DPS

You might have look the cyclones that are leveling in my off hands, you have to check the real Cyclone setup by selecting Vaal Cyclone and then Cyclone on the left

About the gems, yeah there are several setups possible. I chose this one beacause I wanted to max out the counter attacks DPS and still get onslaught proc, but you can adapt it :)
You could add something like steelskin + tempest shield on a Cast when damage taken setup for example to get more defence, or like you said use and enlighten and add war banner.

I'm really interested in how people will adapt this to their gameplay :)

What would you consider (Besides rares) to be all the BiS item's for this build? I am looking for this exact build but not in league. I have some 999% FB's in standard I want to take advantage of and this is exactly what I was looking for. Also, why not Champion ascendency for Impale? The flat damage on that seems pretty OG for FB's.

Yep champion is the best DPS output for cyclone facebreaker, but I like the spellblock too much :p

The bis items are :

- Bronn's Lithe : https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Bronn%27s_Lithe
- Abyssus : https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Abyssus
- Great Old One's Ward : https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Great_Old_One%27s_Ward

If you use those 3 items you can reach 1 million DPS, and if you go CHampion with impale you could reach some crazy amounts :p But I prefer to have a tanky build with high attack & spell block.

I'm currently trying to get a bronn's lithe to replace Abyssus, it's nearly the same DPS output and you get rid of the 40% increased damage of the abyssus. But it's a full Evasion armor, so you need some money to get 5 off colors :p
