[3.13] General's Cry Blade Flurry Build | Berserker | Ritual | Path of Exile 3.13

Hey guys, this is the best boss killer build I have ever played. Blade Flurry with general's cry deals stupid amount of damage. This is not even a min-maxed build, not using mirror tier items. Easily doable with 35-40 exalt.

General's Cry is a warcry skill that taunts nearby enemies, and summons a number of mirage warriors from nearby corpses based on the power of nearby enemies and corpses. Mirage warriors deliver an exerted attack once with the linked trigger skill then disappear.

I use cyclone - cwc - desecrate setup to create corpses so we can summon mirage warriors all the time.

I tried charged dash and cyclone for this setup but didn't feel good as blade flurry.

Looks cool, is on my „builds to try out“ list now. 😉
Can you make a leveling guide? this seems super awesome to play!
I'm not an expert, but it didn't look like it'd be a terribly easy build to have all come together while leveling, at least not in an SSF or league start environment, but that's not to say it's all that bad at leveling. The tree is pretty generic outside of the war cry nodes, and it's pretty close to useful leveling nodes that you can spec out of later. Like, I rushed to get resolute technique right away, and I used ground slam up until I had cyclone, and then cyclone (linking fortify, melee phys until you get brutality, and impale) from there to maps. You'll almost certainly want to path over to the duelist area to get the one dual leech node pretty early on, or else you're going to hate your mana situation until you get Kitava's Teachings. Pick up the warcry nodes as you get closer to maps, although call to arms with enduring cry is handy early while leveling. When I got to maps, a tabula, a scaeva, the red blade banner and a few extra nodes on the tree for resistances to round out my shit gear were enough to get it up and running pretty smoothly.
Didn't read skills properly. useless spam sorry!

So I will be testing that build later on, for now I slapped some gear together, If I will like it I will optimize that further (I can porbably squueze spider aspect and so on) Need to redo the passive on amulet to fatal blade. As is it has about 620 crit multi, as you can tell most of my gear is harvest crafted so this should perform rather well even for mapping.


Edit:

Well, ok, it absolutely destroys metamorphs, conquerors and map bosses, in seconds or less. With HH it makes up for decent mapper too, a tad too slow for my liking, but still pretty good. Life dips here and there in more hairy maps, but so far general content didn't really create much of a threat. I swapped some things around, ditched enlightening 4 for maim (I have pride reduced reserve on amulet) and used different chest and boots to rebalance resistances (got chaos into positive values). I like this build a lot already.
Persistence makes impossible possible, possible likely and likely definite. Yep, Mirror will drop eventually -_-

Hello! Thanks for the interesting build! I want to start a new league on this build, what should I focus on from the very beginning? Will it work as a starter build? What items should i rush first?

I'd be interested in this as well

What is order of ascendancy?

Nvm, if I'm reading video right the it's warcry node, then 4 points for blitz, and last 40% more dmg.

Bit of a weird choice for a crit build to not go Alira. I don't need the resists, but having them more often than not opens up other suffix options on a piece of gear. So for any crit build 20% crit multi and 15% all res is hard to beat with 2 passives spent imo.

Also, if it were possible to figure out 2 more socket to get the Ancestral Warchief - Ancestral Protector - Multi Totems setup, that would be an insane damage boost. Like 20% more DPS on your PoB. Just something to keep in mind.

And a question about mechanics. Does General's Cry replace the mirages from the previous cry? Meaning, do I have to take care with timing, so I don't replace the mirages before they released their BF?
