Cyclone - Scion - MAX LEECH

Hello Exiles!

This is my new melee physical damage build!
It's a scion, with slayer and berserk ascendancy and max leech for not dying!

For the readers (Idea of the build/items):


+ All content viable [no full Delirium]
+ Cheap to start
+ can do reflection maps
+ can do no regeneration of mana, life and energyshield maps


- clear speed is not that fast
- Boss damage could be better

The idea of the build:

The idea of the build is:
A perfect life leecher!
I try so much, with bloodseeker, swords, kaom heart ect. But this is my final version and I think it has the best damage/tankyness from all my ideas what I had in mind. Let's go deeper in the mechanics!


What we need for this build is a really good amount of big life pool. So stack the life on the helmet and get some resistance. Of course, If you want more damage you can play with life mods and the "mobs take increased physical damage". But that will be expensive.

Also we want the much out of "increased life recovery per second from life leech". So take the hysterie essence to craft the "150% increased life recovery per second from life leech" on the amulet and try to get more life an resistance on it.
If we stack this note, we get more life back from the leech per instant. That is the import part on this build! The amount of total life is not that important, important is how much life you get back per instance!!!

For the rings, you try to get the same stats like for the amulet. For that you need the crusader influenced on your vermillion ring. Craft with fossils life and the "increased life recovery per second from life leech" on it.

Body Armour:
For getting more damage, try to craft the power charnge on critial strikes and frenzy charge on hit mod, and of course, life life life :)

Life and resistance

Life, life and resitances.

The crusader gloves from Sirus are a good choince between make more damage because of the vulnerability curse and the life nodes

We want a pure physical axe (or sword)

For the lazy ones (pob):

I have decided to improve my English by doing this build (and hopefully more builds), so when you have some notes to my build, advices for better grammer ect. let me know it. Have fun and stay save.

I am not a pro with crafting in Poe, but i crafted everything by myself, so when you need tips, don't be shy, just ask if you need help.

If you have questions for the build, the functionality or alternatives, just ask :)
