Well then Reckoning and riposte have had a rework
Cyclone base physical damage is literally halved and ofc the aoe radius is a base of 11 and not increased by weapon range however this also changes the facebreaker aoe radius from 6 to 11 😁😁
I am now 99% certain to be running this max block beautiful build for new league, I was between this, RF and frostblade but I have to admit I love my manly block and trigger facebreaker lol
As always huuuuuuuuge thanks to Wrecker for all his work and his fantastic builds and guides (you made a poe addict outta me though lol)

Thanks for taking the time to be so kind. If you have any suggestions for the guide or build, I'd love to hear it. I haven't had a chance to look at your character yet, sorry. I'll make a point too soon though.)
I was thinking about changing some gems, because I'd like to use the curse Vulnerability. (To me) it seems to fit perfectly with this build. My idea was to link Tempest Shield with Curse on Hit + Vulnerability. However, I don't know if this would even work and if it would be worth dropping the original Culling Strike. Another downside is, that there is no socket left for an Increased Duration Support.
An advise to anyone who wants to play this duellist: Use a sword with no elemental damage if you manage to finde one. So you only have to skip maps with the "physical reflection"-modification and not also "elemental reflection". I was using a sword with some minor lightning damage and it was enough to get me killed from time to time in maps with "elemental reflection". The problem wasn't Cyclone, but Vengeance, Reckoning and Riposte.
PS. After almnost one year of playing POE, it was my Duellist GoGoKakao who at last found the Primeval Ruins in Delve, containing the recipe to create 6-linked items on the crafting bench. He is such a lucky fellow :)
I use the ring Mark Of Submission and socket Vulnerability in it and works very well. With that ring you can switch out and use other curses rather easy if you decide you want to run another since it is easy to change socket color me myself I just ended up having a bunch of the rings so I just swap rings.
I done the same as you mention I went full physical dmg for the same reason as you mentioned. My Character is Do You Bleed if you want to see my build! I am just now getting back to playing more now. I took a little time off of POE I got a little burned out pushing my way to lvl 100.
Thank you very much, Mark of Submission is a wonderful suggestion. I even have that ring in my collection. It just never came to my mind to use it for that purpose. I'll just have to take care of my resistences, because the rings I am using now are my main source for them.
Your character is awesome. The perfect shield fo this build, I guess. The elemental damage from one of the rings doesn't do you too much harm in reflection-maps?

Your character is awesome to!
Your welcome ,Yeah that ring is pretty cool for this build if your into adding a curse to the build. The Surrender is a great shield for sure, there are some other great shields too that work well on this build. I have been wanting to try Thousand Teeth Temu, Crown Of The pale King and The Anvil on this build. I have all the gear to start I just never got around to doing it yet but I might try it out when 3.8 hits us on xbox.
On that one ring with the lighting dmg I do run reflect maps with it and what keeps me from taking dmg from it is the Brutality gem. I need to find another ring or try to craft one that is better than that ring TBH.
Hope that ring works out good for you! Happy gaming to you and I can't wait to try this build out on 3.8!

Just as an update, the 3.8 version of this guide will be done tomorrow sometime. I know "sometime" isn't a helpful detail, but the fact that it'll be out at least 12 hours prior to the league starting is.
Thanks for your patience.

The 3.8 guide is up: https://respoe.xyz/forum/view-thread/2628171!
There were some changes to the guide as I previously stated.
I changed the main skill to Bladestorm (though I have small section to explain what you want to do if you prefer to keep Cyclone.) I added Bleed/Crimson Dance to the build as Chance to Bleed Support just deals too much damage to ignore with the initial hit plus the bleed damage x8. Since we barely had any life regen, I also added Vaal Pact so we'll be leeching life WAY more.
I changed the concept of the triggers initiating bleed and the main skill taking advantage with Bloodlust, to the Main Skill dealing the bleed and the trigger skills using Bloodlust.
So the tree and some supports changed a little...but the build still functions and feels just as it did before. It has more survivability and deals way more damage.
Thanks to everyone for all your kind words and encouragement! And not just to me, but to each other as well! It's been a great 3.7. See you on the other side!
