I SACRIFICED A GOAT FOR IT TO RAIN, BUT I GOT A FUCKING STORM INSTEAD!
Okay, so almost every obvious combo for cyclone has already been done, except Druid, or at least I haven’t seen it done in this place so here we go.
Char sheet with all permanent buffs.
GRIMTOOLS - Forgot what I had for crafting bonuses, there was one for physique for sure.
- Gear - Cyclone, whole thing’s built around it. 2 pc LD cause I wanted totem to be the secondary damage dealer, and it’s probably the best one. For conduit always gun for acid or chaos res. If you’re going legit what’s best is Totem mod > WD mod > literally any other shaman conduit > whatever arcanist conduit there is. The totem mod is not really necessary as even without the mod 3 totems are easy to maintain, it just becomes easier with the mod. Phantom thread girdle cause we won’t get much value if we use storm shepherd due to the conversion on star pact, and the reduced physique reqs is very useful for the spirit dumping.
- Skill Choices - Devil. Totem. Got all the sustain shaman can afford, unlike mage hunter or sorc, druid is squishier so 12/12 wendigo is a must for me, 1 pt on base Wind Devil skill cause fire don’t do much here really and the dot doesn’t stack. Just jamming them into stats performed better for me. The rest is self explanatory.
- Devotions - Pretty common. I tried tsunami without ghoul but was too squishy. Again, this isn’t mage hunter or sorc.
- YENNEFER’S NOT A DRUID! - If I made a sorc named Yennefer someone’s bound to tell me Geralt’s the one who throws bombs.
Cruci Performance and Video
Cruci cleartime with 3 buffs + vanguard banner is around 6:15 average with presummoning all 5 devils before starting, bumps up to around 6:30 if you don’t presummon (makes a huge difference in 151). My fastest run is 5:53, as shown in the video. Doubt it can go much faster without changes, I managed 5:44 on a setup with tsunami but it was so inconsistent. My slowest run was 6:42 on a 170 spawn of 2 alex and 2 valdaran, all four had a shitton lightning res.
Consistency depends on the pilot really and one does need to be used to it before it can perform consistently. Experience with other devil builds like vindicator is helpful. Once you get the hang of it though, it becomes really good.
Other Stuff* **Realms** - I don't like realms. I did have some spare realm sets back when I played it last patch tho. There's a shitton of them drops before it was moved to vendors so it wasn't a problem finding good rolled parts. - copied this from the previous thread again
SHOW YOUR CYCLONES BEFORE IT GETS NERFED AGAIN!
@Zantai pls no more nerf. Just nerf AAR and leave cyclone.
Thanks to @mad_lee for all his builds that use bat+ghoul+diamond and taught everyone to be pussies. I guess sometimes we need to play super safe too. To @sir_spanksalot who constantly reminded my yesterday that lightning is the single strongest damage type in the game right now, which made me remember I wanted to do a druid. To @mad_lee again cause I stole some stuff from his cyclone vindicator, and to @thejabrixone who supported my claim that 1 point devil is better than maxing it, making me do less testing.
