Skeletons have a built-in Dash which they can use to enter melee range with if they're supported by Feeding Frenzy. Also, the Feeding Frenzy support gem gives a movement speed buff while its secondary bonus is active as well, iirc.

I don't think they'll be missing too much movement.

I see. Have been a bit out of the loop. Sounds interesting in theory, guess we'll see how it will be put into practice

I don't think it'll be Queen's Escape levels of Skeleton zoom-zooms, but it should still be pretty fast I'd think.

The flat damage is half, ergo, almost halved the damage. Cyclone was easily hitting 2M to 20M damage in Legion, which is absolutely insane considering the ability could barely do 2-5M pre-Legion with 10x the mirror-quality gear at it's disposal.

Nerfing the damage by half, and mind you, Impale is not touched at all, is a non-issue. Likewise, the range of Cyclone was nerfed, and this was the over-all bigger issue for Cyclone over the damage; It was WAY too easy to increase Cyclone's range to hit the entire screen, and sometimes, more than that. If you were using Zerphi's, I think it is, and HH, you could reach 3-screen wide AoE clearing radius pretty much... That's stupidly strong for a melee skill lmao...


If you actually read what I posted, or at least processed it before your reply, this was already stated and understood, and you would've seen RANGE has nothing to do with my post.

Some of us Don't have that mirror tier items, and some of use didn't/don't use Impale, or any of the ridiculous Meta garbage. So really nothing pointed out unvalidated my post.

It's simple, Cyclone got more than a kick in the nuts it deserved, it got nerfed worse than Pre-Legion. Put it right back to useless, unless equipping multi mirror tier shit.


You honestly didn't even need mirror quality gear to reach multi-million dps on Cyclone. A few small Exalts to multi-mod a weapon to bottom-end levels of multi-mod crafting nets you that much easily, and that's easily obtainable. You can each reach at least 1M dps with some uniques, if not more than that. So in Blight, it will take an actual investment to start feeling the power creep, which is not a bad thing imvho.

The range is the real kicker to the Cyclone ability though; It's now going to take more effort to raise, and it'll take more effort to clear maps.


Range / Map clear was never really an issue for me, Been playing Pathfinder Cyclone since Betrayal, and my speed was more than adequate. (The kick in the nuts to Cyclone's MS reduction does hurt tho)

And yes, in Legion, you didn't need mirror tier stuff to hit ridiculous DPS, but were not talking legion anymore.

New = 7 from gem + 5 from tree = 12 zombies


TL;DR: We know nothing until we know everything.



7 from gem, +2 from tree = 9 zombies max (3.8 skilltree).

totally not a nerf right?
Let's go.
full gem description when? does anybody knows?

Oh well, no point arguing with Delve newbs.

Exactly, only elitists like you CAN be right, so there is no point of even saying anything otherwise. <facepalm>
