Cyclone Slayer Gear, Jewels, and Flasks

Gear

Capping your elemental resistances is essential and it should always be your top priority in any build; it should be the first thing you do when gearing up a character. Obtaining a 6-link, while very powerful and certainly recommended, can potentially be very expensive (requiring an average of 1500 Orbs of Fusing, obviously depending on your luck); as such, this should not really be a goal for you while gearing up, and you should instead settle for a 5-link until you have enough resources. Getting Atziri's Disfavour Atziri's Disfavour as early as possible will boost your damage output a great deal. Belly of the Beast Belly of the Beast and Carnage Heart Carnage Heart will help out with the survivability before you can replace them with better gear pieces.

Helmet

A rare Helmet is best in slot here. We recommend high Armour base with Blood Rage Blood Rage or Cyclone Cyclone labyrinth enchant. The Rare Affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (at least 50)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 80)
  3. % Increased Maximum Life (Pristine Fossil)
  4. Nearby Enemies take #% Increased Physical damage (Jagged Fossil)

Body Armour

Belly of the Beast Belly of the Beast is a cheap starting option for the build. Later on it is recommended moving to Kaom's Heart Kaom's Heart when you 5 or 6-Link your weapon. Rare body armor with same stat priority as the helm can work too. The Rare Affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (at least 50)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 100)
  3. % Increased Maximum Life (Elder mod; Pristine Fossil)
  4. Socketed Gems are supported by Level 1 Maim (Serrated Fossil)

Gloves

Haemophilia Haemophilia is best in slot when it comes to clearing. Considering the gloves are not expensive they can be corrupted for an additional maximum frenzy charge, attack speed, life or a decent curse on hit. Rare pair of gloves is recommended when it comes to high-end bosses like shaper guardians, Shaper and all versions of the Elder. Spiked Gloves Spiked Gloves have melee damage implicit which is best for the build. The Rare Affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (at least 50)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 60)
  3. Adds # to # Physical Damage to Attacks
  4. % increased Attack Speed

Boots

Movement speed is important for this build. It determines how fast you spin around so it is basically clear speed improvement. A pair of Bubonic Trail Bubonic Trail is great choice for the build. The Rare Affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (at least 50)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 60)
  3. % increased Movement Speed (at least 25%)

Belt

Heavy Belt Heavy Belt, Leather Belt Leather Belt, Rustic Sash Rustic Sash and Stygian Vise Stygian Vise are all good belt bases. A well rolled rare belt provides more benefits than any unique for the build. The Rare Affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 80)
  3. % increased Elemental Damage with Attack Skills (at least 25%)

Amulet

A rare shaper or Elder-based Amulet is best in slot. Carnage Heart Carnage Heart can also be used while you progress through content. The Rare Affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 50)
  3. Gain % of non-chaos damage as extra chaos damage (Elder Mod)
  4. Adds # to # Physical Damage to Attacks
  5. % increased Elemental Damage with Attack Skills (at least 25%)

Rings

Best in slot rings are very specific and can get very expensive. Steel Ring Steel Ring rolled with Essence of Hysteria for the extra damage. Before that use rare rings with following mods. The Rare Affix priority is:

  1. +#% total Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  2. +# to maximum life (at least 50)
  3. −# to Mana Cost of Skills (crafted)
  4. Adds # to # Physical Damage to Attacks
  5. % increased Elemental Damage with Attack Skills (at least 25%)

Weapons

Atziri's Disfavour Atziri's Disfavour is the best two-hander when it comes to well spend currency. Starforge Starforge is always a valuable option but brings up some problems when it comes to not being able to deal non-physical damage and kind of hinders the damage potential of the build. Rare two-hander with at least 650 pDPS can be considered as well.

Flasks

Quicksilver Flask Quicksilver Flask is important for the build since it improves clear speed. Rolling additional movement speed is recommended. Basalt Flask Basalt Flask is a defensive flask that should be rolled with curse immunity. Lion's Roar Lion's Roar or Atziri's Promise Atziri's Promise should be chosen based on personal preference. Taste of Hate Taste of Hate is one of the strongest flasks both in offensive and defensive aspects. Divine Life Flask Divine Life Flask is the usual instant or half-instant life flask you need in every build. Forbidden Taste Forbidden Taste is another great flask for the build but should only be used if you have already ascended into Brutal Fervour.

Be sure to check out our Flask Crafting Guide to learn everything you need to know about how to set up your non-Unique flasks.

Jewels

There is no specific unique jewel that is required for the build.

Regular Jewel Affix Priority

  1. % Increased Maximum life
  2. % increased Physical Damage
  3. % increased Physical Damage with Axes
  4. % increased Attack Speed with Axes
  5. % increased Attack Speed with Two Handed Melee Weapons
  6. % increased Damage
  7. % increased Attack Speed
  8. % increased Area Damage
  9. % to all Elemental Resistances

Abyssal Jewel Affix Priority

  1. # to maximum Life (at least 35)
  2. % chance to gain Onslaught for 4 seconds on Kill
  3. % chance to Blind enemies on hit with attacks
  4. % Increased damage if you if you’ve killed recently
  5. Unholy Might on kill

    How do you generate endurance charges for Immortal Call to use?

    You can either use Enduring Cry Enduring Cry or you can leave it just the way it is, the main idea behind the CWDT Immortal Call setup is to have a split-second physical damage immunity to prevent deaths from porcupines that die at the same time and to proc the additional life recovery from the Major pantheon

    Ngamahu definitely falls behind the other two. When it comes to pure damage output and clear speed, Atziri's Disfavour Atziri's Disfavour is the best option. Starforge is not bad, it allows you to go Blood Magic, essentially with Starforge Starforge you will be a bit more tanky and will not worry about elemental reflect, but you will do less damage compared to Atziri’s Disfavour.

    Only one bad thing about this build… sometimes cyclone decides to have a mind of it’s own. Otherwise I have found it to be a great build.

    Hellow Madaje, I don’t know how long have you been playing the game but if you compare nowadays Cyclone Cyclone to before, it is way better. Long time ago in Path of Exile, Cyclone was stopping every single time you hit the smallest peddle, this was super annoying. Now there might still be some issues but the skill is not as bad as before for sure.

    Just came back, I last played during Beta. My brother’s and I am always looking for new co-op games. I suggested we try this one and they are really enjoying it. Back then I loved playing flicker strike…. of course, that is, when it didn’t crash the game.

    Hey Madaje, I’m sure you enjoy PoE the more you play it. Flicker Strike requires a lot of mental stability to play hehe.

    Hey dRACO777, if you use Brutality Support Brutality Support you will lose great amount of Chaos/Elemental damage provided by flasks, gear and auras/buffs. When it comes to your second question, Slayer’s Headsman ascendancy node makes you immune to reflected Physical damage.

    Heya V, I’ve been playing for a short while and just started this (Synthesis) league, so I’m still getting the hang of things. 2 questions for you: 1) is why would one choose Earthquake over Sunder while leveling as Sunder seems to do WAY more damage for me. 2) Why would you use/need Blood magic when using Starforge but not Atziri’s? I like the idea of being able to do more maps at the cost of slightly less damage but I can’t figure this bit of the build. Thanks!

    1) Sunder is a great levelling skill, but lacks single target, while Earthquake Earthquake one shots packs of monsters while also has respectable single target.

    2) With Starforge Starforge you do not need auras, simply because you cannot deal Elemental Damage. If you want to, you can go Blood Magic even with Atziri's Disfavour Atziri's Disfavour, as you say you will lose some damage in order to gain Life.

    Have fun in Path of Exile.

    There is a lot of new nodes under the duelist start point and you haven’t touched them. Have you evaluated them and disregarded them so quickly ?
