[3.18] Shockwave Cyclone Build | Champion | Sentinel | Path of Exile 3.18

Hey guys, shockwave cyclone build is here. I play cyclone every league once or twice. This time I wanted to play as champion. It is really tanky and clear speed is great with shockwave. Also has decent single target damage.



Build Cost
- Medium Budget: 10-50 ex


Shockwave: Shockwave Support is a support gem that causes the supported attack skill to release a Shockwave on hit, dealing attack damage to enemies around the enemy. It causes the supported skill to be restricted to staves and maces.

Mana: My body armor has "Socketed Attacks have # to Total Mana Cost" mod so cyclone has no mana cost and I use lifetap support for other skills.

Impale: Use impale support instead of Increased Critical Damage if you don't have a Cane of Kulemak with impale chance mod.

Slayer vs Champion:
- Slayer is faster and deals more damage.
- Champion is tankier.

Leveling: I don't like leveling with cyclone so I leveled up with ground slam and used an axe. Leveling gems and trees are in the video.
Recommended weapons for leveling:
- Limbsplit (Level 13-33)
- Reaper's Pursuit (Level 33-68)

Which version would you say is stronger on lower budget ( champ or slayer ),currently have ~10 ex.

Also, you have curses on both of your rings but can only apply one? or am i missing something.

TY for the guide!

What veiled mods would also work for the staff, apart from the ones you have on it?
What DPS should have a rare staff?
I changed from The Blockman to this build and I am really happy so far, thanks for the build!
Am I missing something or u just have 70% chance to impale? Is that normal? (Newbie here)

40% from Cane
10% from champ ascendency
20% from physical maestry

Add in the 20% from Dread Banner, which is amplyfied by quality and the %effect of non-curse auras from the tree. It reaches 100%.
