[3.14] Splitting Steel Build | Champion | Ultimatum | Path of Exile 3.14

Hey guys, steel skills changed at the start of the league and I wanted to try them. Here is my splitting steel build. I also tried other steel skills and decided to play splitting steel. Shattering steel feels like a melee skill, lancing steel feels like a minion build with saviour they fire projectiles behind you :)

I actually enjoyed making this build. It really needs investment for better single target damage. Splitting steel is like frost blades. Clear speed is pretty good but you need better gear for bosses. But still managed to kill end game content.

just found about the splitting steel skill today looks hella cool and wanted to give a second character a try can you do a per level skill tree guide for PoB?
like 30 points / 60 points / 80 points since the tree does look all over place and i dont know what to add first
also isnt ranger for this skill better ?
This build slaps! I'm just starting into yellow maps and need to upgrade my gear but its going well.
I’m currently using shattering steel but it seems so slow, especially slow in ultimatum.

This any better?
This build is legit. Spent 3 or 4 days building it, around 2-3ex total. It facerolls yellow maps (as far as I have gotten). Got frustrated with lack of mobility for a bit, swapped to cyclone and was like wtf -- why cant I clear the entire screen in 2 shots >.<. Id recommend more life nodes though, pretty squishy at less than 4k hp.
