[3.18] Shockwave Cyclone Build (League Starter) | Champion | Sentinel | Path of Exile 3.18

Hey guys, here is another league starter build. I also have a slayer version with very similar setup. Just wanted see how champion performs.

Slayer Version: https://youtu.be/uZsTDfwECLg

Build Cost
- Low Budget: 0-20 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: "Channelling Skills have -3 to Total Mana Cost" mod on rings and "#% of Physical Attack Damage Leeched as Mana" mod on a jewel
- If you have a body armour with "Socketed Attacks have # to Total Mana Cost" mod you don't need - mana cost on rings and mana leech

- Awakened Gems (Melee Physical Damage and Brutality)
- Watcher's Eye (Impales you inflict last # additional Hits while using Pride)
- Cluster Jewels
Large: Feed the Fury / Martial Prowess / Fuel the Fight
Medium: Pressure Points / Quick Getaway - Towering Threat / Magnifier

Leveling: Start with ground slam and keep playing until level 68 then switch to cyclone - shockwave setup. Leveling gems and trees are in the video. (Use a two-handed axe while leveling because staff nodes are way up there and all crit related.)
Recommended weapons for leveling:
- Limbsplit (Level 13-33)
- Reaper's Pursuit (Level 33-68)
