[3.7] PotCG Cyclon Champion, being Meta without Meta items [WIP]

Do you like playing Meta but not really meta ? This is for you.

Build revolves around this unique



I dropped a 5L PotCG early in this league, and wanted to try it as a cycloner. Results are amazing !

I am not a Hardcore player ! Gear is not perfect yet, and I am sure the build has room for improvment. Feel free to contribute !

Kill credit to PotCGHamp. Came accross his video and it helped me perfecting my build, thanks to him !


Pros

- High single target dps. Bosses just MELT.
- Good clear speed, not exceptionnal tho
- Tanky, even with abyssus
- Non meta items, uniques are cheap for this build !

Cons

- Not a zoom zoom build. No shatters nor fancy explosions
- As the build requires several uniques to work well, resist balance could be frustrating.

How does this build works ?

- With PotCG, you need to stack strengh and flat damage to get your dps !
- Impale is not calculed by PoB, but its a HUGE source of your dps ! Sitting at 94% chance of impale atm.
