Flicker/Cyclone God Gladiator

Gladiators can easily find a state of equilibrium between offense and defense and the Flicker/Cyclone God Gladiator is proof of that. So if you want to try a melee build that is not just reliable but also powerful, then this is the PoE build for you.

Pros:

  • Very fast clear speed and high DPS
  • Very high defensive potential
  • Viable for almost all content
  • Not heavily reliant on Cluster Jewels

Cons:

  • Can’t do physical reflect maps
  • Vulnerable to damage over time and reduced block chance
  • Can be quite pricey when being min-maxed
  • Not very beginner-friendly
