[3.10] HC, Max Block, 200% max life, 100k+ DPS Cwc Cyclone Blade Vortex Blade Blast

Intro


Hello!

I saw Blade Blast and thought it looked cool so I wanted to make a build around it - Cwc cyclone with blade vortex looks like the highest DPS option.

I also play HC so I thought a max block gladiator would work out best.


Trees/PoB/Leveling


Level 80 tree
Level 80 PoB = https://pastebin.com/FFyfx4fm

Level 100 tree
Level 100 PoB = https://pastebin.com/8Jb6VkfZ

Kill all bandits.

Level with Sunder or w/e you like until you get Cyclone. Use an Edge of Madness + Cyclone - Rage - Impale - Fortify(for survivability).

Switch to CWC setup when you can get close to max block otherwise, you risk ripping.


Gear


Required:

A shield with 31+ block chance

Recommended:

Cybil's Paw

Aegis Aurora

Belly of the Beast

The Stampede

Stat priority:

After maxing your resists, work on life, armor, and spell damage/physical damage.


Gems

Outro


I am just now starting this build over, after ripping as a Trickster (free movement skill greed too stronk)

I will post here with my progress. I will also post videos when/if I get to maps.

Ok! Thanks for reading!

blade blast shouldnt be linked with cyclone, maybe by itself would do more damage?
Sounds interesting let me know how this goes! Need to make a new build cause of rippy deliriums...

It's linked with CWC, so it auto casts 3x/second - that's the idea of the build, to not have to really cast anything - kind of a faceroll build, which is all i like to play.

trying this build.. level 56 atm.. using only blade vortex because cast when channeling cast rate isn't enouph to build stacks for blade vortex fast enough to do damage with blade blast.

i think it needs cast on crit to work

to be honest i will abandon the build.. i ll farm currency to switch to something else.. i think it will cap at aroun 0.5M shaper dps that nowdays isnt nothing
Could switch out Blade Vortex for Bladefall and do Blade Blast > Bladefall?
