After GGG improved the melee skills, Duelist became very powerful. In addition to the cyclone, there are many good skills. PoeCurrencyBuy has prepared some poe 3.8 duelist builds (Slayer, Gladiator, Champion) for the league starter, cheap, fast and farming.

PoE 3.8 Duelist Starter Builds

 

Quick Jump

Duelist Champion Builds

[3.8] PoE Tornado Shot Champion Starter Build

[3.8] PoE Cyclone Champion Cheap Build

 

[3.8] PoE Tornado Shot Champion Starter Build

  • + Clear speed
  • + Defense
  • + Single target
  • + Stun immune
  • + Great league starter
  • + High absorption Molten shell / Vaal molten shell
  • - Predictive mode is a must once you get fork, limiting HC viability
  • - Cant use Queen of the forest
  • - Laggy on lower end PCs
  • - Min-maxing can be expensive
  • - Arborix bow effect makes a lot of mtx look weird

 

This build pushes the limits of defense and DPS that a bow build can achieve. It is easily the strongest build I have ever league started as and the tankiest bow character I have ever played. Move speed bonus caps out around 200-240% without Headhunter making it fast but not quite as fast as some Queen of the Forest Deadeyes. If you are looking for bow build that is much higher in defense while still having insane damage this build achieves just that.

 

Gems Setup

Barrage > Impale > Brutality > Maim > Vicious Projectiles > Slower Projectiles

Tornado shot > Mirage Archer > Greater Multiple Projectiles > Impale > Chain > Brutality

the 6th link can be changed for fork if you do not have rigwald's quills and also for maim if you have headhunter.

Useful 4 links

Dread banner > Enhance > Blood rage > Dash

enhance grants more damage for dread banner, attack speed for blood rage and cooldown for dash

PridePrecision (level 1) > Flesh and Stone > enlighten

Chances are your character will be too dumb for enlighten, mana is fine without it

CwDT (level 6) > Vaal Molten shell (level 13) > increased duration

I use a level 6 cwdt because if you press vaal molten shell when molten shell is not on cooldown it can proc while you still have a large vaal molten shell active, having level 6 atleast lets you get 5-7k damage from the VMS before it procs.

You can not use cwdt and self cast molten shell, I actually advise it for things like shaper and hall of grandmasters.

Skill Tree

Click me!

First rush either to the leech nodes in Duelist area ("Vitality Void") or to "Resolute Technique" and pick all the good stuff on the way. Then travel to the ranger area and pick up all stuff on the way. When you feel squishy get some life nodes... when you need more damage dps nodes. When you start to go for crit you spec out of Resolute Technique.

Duelist Slayer Builds

[3.8] PoE Cyclone Slayer Shaper Build

[3.8] PoE Slayer Tornado Shot / Barrage MF Windripper Cheap

 

[3.8] PoE Cyclone Slayer Shaper Build

6L Mapping

Cyclone | Fortify | Melee Phys | Infused Channeling | Brutality | Pulverize

6L Single Target

If you have a white socket in your weapon, swap Pulverize for Impale

If you do not have a white socket in your weapon, swap Pulverize for Dmg on Full Life.

6L Fortify Weapon

If you are lucky enough to have Fortify built into your weapon, replace Fortify with DMG on Full Life

Boots

Enlighten | Pride | Flesh and Stone | Maim Support

Flesh and Stone blood stance maim's nearby enemies. Maim support provides us increased maim effect which is DEFINITELY worth it (600k+ shaper dmg at endgame)

Gloves

Leap Slam | Endurance Charge On Melee Stun | Faster Attacks | Blood Rage

For shaper, you could replace ECoMS with vuln and manually cast 21/20 vuln for ~7% More dmg if you wish.

Helmet

Ancestral Warchief | Impale Support | Blood and Sand | Dread OR War Banner

AW Totem boosting our damage and helping our Impale stacks. Blood and Sand blood stance providing more dmg. Dread OR War Banner boosting our damage as well. Here is how the Banners stack up and what you should pick, depending on your playstyle:

IMO it seems Dread banner is the best one to use while mapping if you choose to never really place it. However, War Banner is still best for single target at endgame because of the adrenaline you gain for 2.5~ sec upon placing it. After making the adjustments to the PoB in it's current state with the aforementioned values we've discussed, it seems the best PURE DAMAGE results are as follows:

  • #War Banner planted (78% More modifier/impale) with Adrenaline it's 10.7m.
  • #Dread Banner (110% More modifier/impale) it's 9.75m with or without the banner planted.
  • #War banner planted, no adrenaline is 9.31m.
  • #War Banner not planted is 8.98m.

So it's pretty clear, if you don't plan on setting a banner at all - choose Dread Banner. If you plan on setting the banner and taking advantage of 2.5sec of adrenaline at boss encounters, pick war banner. Again, these are just for damage values - defensive values use your own judgement if you want to take advantage of defensive banner traits.
