Thanks for the info. How much life should I be looking at at about 90?

Two leagues in a row I've played this character, and its still the strongest one I have played in over 400 hours. Level 91, tooltip says 91k on cyclone. POB puts me at around 400k. Still farming uber labs (super laid back with this char!) for better enchants, but still loving it. I have all maps down except for shaper guardians and shaper himself. That will come in the next few weeks as I flip some items to afford the maps. The only downside is i struggle with int requirements sometimes, and struggled a lot running 2 aura's with mana. But fixed it with mana leech on the gloves.

People think cyclone is slow, but when mapping I swap to inc aoe on my chest; Coupled with the movespeed from the helm and chest, and a flask and I zoom around at 150ish% move speed. Plenty fine!

5.6k Life, 3k armor

Hope you keep updating for future leagues, thank you!


Do you not use any golem/anger? I'm struggling with gem choices at the moment. Also struggling with int requirements.


I leveled with a lightning golem, and have still been leveling it in my off-hand. I just need to re-color my boots to fit it in, but I've been lazy. Honestly I havent needed the damage, and the golem randomly dying and having to re-cast it can be annoying at times.

The mana leech on your gloves is in fact doing nothing for you because you only deal fire damage. ;)

I would recommend you to run Enlighten 3/4 if you want to increase your mana pool.

Get Tombfist and run murderous jewel in it. Intimidate provide good damage buff.


I was under the impression Cyclone allows me to mana leech? I definitely run out of mana if I stupidly miss my cyclone on a pack, and cyclone off into nowheresville. However as long as there are packs I can cyclone indefinitely. It's most noticeabe in maps with long straight narrows, like Lookout bridges. Is that not mana leech, or is it another mechanic I don't fully understand?

I did run Tombfist for a while, but reaching T10-15 maps I needed to max out my res, and found it hard without a decent set of gloves. The armor is nice as well. I'm still leveling an enlighten in my off-hand, but I'll have to look into that!
This was such a fun build this league.

I respec'd my berserker and included all abyssal uniques just to see if it was feasible.



Surprisingly, it was easy to max out all resists (without diamond skin) and even get halfway decent life at 5392 at lvl 91, pretty hard to do with all uniques. I was going to try out two-sockets, but those boot prices are obscene.

In addition to the 6 abyssal jewels in gear, I have 7 abyssal jewels in passive tree (at the cost of several 5% life nodes), so lightpoacher makes quite a show and the 22% increased life from chest doesn't feel so bad. It's pretty squishy, so definitely not HC viable. But a few exalts could buy you much better jewels than I am using.

It can do all t15s with ease, as well shaper guardians (except Chimera, but just because I'm slow and those damn snakes). I haven't and won't try shaper or uberatziri. Red elder and his guardians melt, so it's not a bad way to end league before we say goodbye to abyss sockets and jewels.

Need help with where to go next:


Based on your recommendation, I haven't gotten Taste of Hate yet because I'm struggling a bit with resistances and my fire is only about 20 higher than cold resistance right now. I'm thinking of trying to fit Red Dream in but I simply don't have the jewel slot for it.

Looking on poe.trade, most things that would be considered upgrades would be monstrously expensive so I'd like a firmer idea of what to prioritise before spending.

I've recently spent quite a few ex orbs on upgrading my belt, boots, and rings, and I still don't know how to get up to over 100k dps in town. I've also dropped below 6k life in order to grab Primeval Force on the right side of the skill tree. Just looking at my gear and skill points, can anyone offer where I can best pick up more DPS while also getting back to 6k life? Would the best upgrades perhaps be to buy some lvl 20 max quality corrupted skill gems? Thanks.

Start to replace increased area of effect by concentrated effect your DPS will be teleported over 100k

Oh yea, that did shoot up a LOT. But I think I remember reading to use Concentrated Effect in the armor piece only for bosses, so now knowing that it makes such a huge difference will help me defeat some of these endgame bosses. I still have like 10ex+ to spend though, and am just wondering how best to spend it.

Drop Atziri's for literally any other flask. Defensive or Offensive. Atziri does nothing for us. And Opals.

Hey mate, may be you should practice your mechanics against those end game bosses, and try to choose different flask and pantheon setup against different bosses. I have 82k dps in town, however I can kill all these end game bosses like Shaper's Guardians, Shaper, and Uber Atziri deathless right now after a few attempts. Good luck.
