Cons

  • Res can be hard to cap

Gems Setup

The links are sorted in descending order of importance. So the last gem in a chain should be the last one you slot in when you upgrade your amount of links.

The colour of the Text implies the colour of the Gem.

Comfortable Cyclone Setup for clearing - 6L

Cyclone + elemental damage + Added Cold Damage + Hypothermia + Increased Area of Effect + (Elemental Prolif or Ice bite)

With this setup arctic armor is not mandatory

High DPS Cyclone for bosses - 6L

Cyclone + elemental damage + Added Cold Damage + Elemental Focus + Hypothermia + Concentrated Effect

But in that case Arctic Armour is mandatory to chill the bosses to proc "The pandemonius effect"

WARNING : you cannot just only switch gems before bosses as it is usually done (here Increased area for Conc Effect and Ele prolif/Ice Bite for Ele focus), ele focus will prevent any ailment and you will loose all the pandemonis effect so you should either switch herald of ice for arctic armor !

Cast When Damage Taken Setup - 3L or 4L

CWDT + Orb of Storm + Frost bomb + Immortal Call

Frost bomb ==> -25 cold res, huge on bosses

Orb of storm ==> huge increased chance to proc Elemental Overload

Immortal Call ==> mostly here to survive a big blue pack of Porcupine mobs, especially if you are using Ele focus only

WarCry Setup - 4L

Abyssal Cry + Enduring Cry + Blood Magic + Ancestral Protector/Warchief

Abyssal Cry ==> really nice for clearing

Enduring Cry ==> Free endu charges (3 = +12% all res and +12% physical reduction), nice for Vulnerabilty/Ele weakness map and bosses

Blood magic ==> almost mandatory, you will spam your warcry every 3.33s and abyssal cry is really costly, and you will not have so much mana left especially when running all the aura

Movement Skill - 3L

Leap Slam + Faster Attack + Blood Magic

Aura Setup 2L + 1S or 5L

Blasphemy + Frosbite and (Herald of Ice or Arctic Armour)

Blasphemy + Frosbite + Herald of Ice + Arctic Armour + Enlighten lvl 3-4

If you are running Elemental Focus you are not doing any ailment with Cyclone, so you need a way to chill and we are using arctic armor for that.

And don't forget :

  • Bosses have 60% less curse effect on them AND 30% ele res
  • Shaper has 80% less curse effect on him and 40% ele res

so frostbite efficiency is really reduced but frosbomb still apply the -25% cold debuff

 

Gear

The build is very cheap and you can have your 6L for 1ex (in delve)

Overview

POE_3.5_Duelist_Gladiator_Starter_Freezing_Cyclone_Gear

Base gears

  • Mandatory : Debeon's Dirge + 2 x Cold steel
  • Highly recommanded : The pandemonius
  • Recommanded : Deidbellow

 

Leveling

LEVELING SUMMARY

Leveling is generally a personnal choice, we using 2H sunder even after the nerf

The Rustic sash + Blacksmith + Weapon can easily carry you to blood aqueduct where you can farm lvl 66 to equip Debeo

19 pt Classical duelist start 2H nodes + lif

31 pts Life + instant warcry so you will be ready at lvl 33-34 to equip deidbellow + abyssal cry (at delve league starting the prophecy was about 8c but it dropped quickly)

45pts For the next 10 points we are splitting the route, one way to the life wheel and another way to the maraudeur start, so if you feel you are too squishy you can focus on life nodes, and if you are ok you can take some dps nodes

61pts Dps route to onslaught on kill

71 pts We are now preparing the switch to Debeon, for that we need 2 jewel sockets for cold steel at the duelist and marauder start and we should now take enough dps to rely on mana leech so we get the life and mana leech nodes

Note : if you already got an exalted orb, you can already buy your 6l debeon (they were 1-2ex at days 2-3 and stayed at that price all the league, so except if it becomes more famous it will be the same next league)

95 pts Make your way to Elemental Overload 

For the gems you can do 

  • lvl 1 Dual Strike + Onslaught
  • lvl 2 Cleave + Onslaught you can start to lvl Ruthless (you can also Molten Strike + Ancestral Call)
  • lvl 12 Sunder + Onslaught + Ruthless
  • lvl 18 Sunder + Melee Physical Damage + Ruthless
  • lvl 38 Sunder + Melee Physical Damage + Ruthless + Multistrike

Important : as soon as possible lvl cyclone, elemental damage, hypothermia and added cold and socket it to your debeon when you switch at lvl 66
