    This is why you are getting one shot. Maxing out elemental resistances is not an option in this game, it's mandatory. Better yet, go over max if you can.

    Also, you have zero life on your gear except 100 life on Starforge.

    These are the two biggest noob mistakes in the game. You need max resists, and lots of life on your gear.

    Also, make your characters public in your profile. That way people can look at your character and tree to help you better. It's set to private by default.

    the only 2 pieces of gear that you own, that you should keep, are Starforge and Belly. the rares you're wearing are complete doodoo, and the 2 essence worms are not things you want or need for cyclone.

    Are you using a guide? A beginner-friendly guide will explain a lot of why it does what it does.

    And, yes, make your character tab public, and install Path of Building so you can follow what a guide is doing and analyze your own build.

    Resists and effective health are the two biggest mistakes for new players. No big deal and easy to fix. (But they will kill you...)

    As GreyLensman has said.
    I can also add that 99% new players donĀ“t use good flasks (or max bad life flasks).
