Guide

My Cyclone build helps counter the problems of desync and small AoE by increasing the AoE range and increasing the overall tankiness to survive the dreaded desync.

Thanks to having Blind + 55% chance to block + around 7k armor 5k evasion. I rarely take damage. Even if a Mob somehow brings me low. I have Cast on Damage Taken with Immortal Call to give me the time i need to life leech from gear and passives. Also don't forget the amazing killing speed of this build.

I will keep updating as new changes happen and new ideas come about. Until then Spin to Win.
