1. Top 1 - POE 3.7 Slayer Build - Cyclone Guide 


This build guide was made in standard with GG gear at endgame, but you can definitely do league-based/cheaper iterations and still achieve great damage.

This is not a "Path of Building-Warrior" type build. I have been playing Cyclone for almost 5 years in this great game, and I can assure you this is the most satisfying, smoothest, tankiest 2H cyclone build I've ever played.

Pros & Cons:
+ works on a budget
+ tanky
+ boss killer
+ can do all map mods except "cannot leech" which is extremely rare
+ high sustain
+ SSF viable-ish
+ pretty sure it's HC viable
+ 1mil+ DPS
- maxing out somewhat expensive
- totem is a bit squishy
- sometimes spin for too long :D

Ascendancy:

 - Headsman
- Endless Hunger
- Bane of Legends
- Brutal Fervour

Bandits: 
Kill All, 2 Passive Points.

Pantheons:
Major God - Soul of Arakaali
Minor God - Soul of Gruthkul

Gear:

Top 2 - POE 3.7 Slayer Build - Ancestral Warchief Guide 

Ancestral Warchief Slayer is the strongest Melee/Physical Totem build in Path of Exile. Also, it's a great low-budget League Starter

Ancestral Warchief is one of the most robust budget-friendly Melee/Physical builds in Path of Exile. It can be easily played as a very efficient League starter build and depending on your final budget; this build will be surely able to clear all of the Path of Exile's end-game content.

Pros & Cons:
+ Hardcore viable
+ High endgame single target potential
+ Safe to play
+ Do not have to worry about reflect
- Totem builds might not appeal to everyone
- Average clear speed

 1. Headsman

Top 3 - POE 3.7 Slayer Build - Double Strike Guide

This time for my Vaal Double Strike Slayer. I wanted to see what an end game melee build played like so that I didn't go into Legion blind. So, I reworked my Standard Double Strike Champion into the build you see here. Long story short the damage is Insane, the clear speed is Insane, and it's probably the best more boss I've ever played because you don't have to dodge any mechanics since they all die instantly.

Pros & Cons:
+ Good-looking skill
+ Satisfying play style
+ Easy League starter
+ Cheap to start off
+ Fast Mapping
- No leech Maps can kill you easily
- Can be quite Expensive at the Top end
- Leech lasts only 5secounds

Ascendancy:

- Headsman
- Endless Hunger
- Bane of Legends
- Brutal Fervour

Bandits:
One could take Oak, Alira, or Kill all.

Pantheons:
Major God - Soul of the Brine King
Minor God - Soul of Shakari

Gear:


Gems Setup:
Weapon
Cyclone - Brutality - Rage - Pulverise - Melee Physical Damage - Impale

BodyArmour
Vaal Double Strike - Ruthless - Impale - Brutality - Melee Physical Damage - Enduring Cry

Helm
Leap Slam - Blood Rage - Endurance Charge on Melee Stun - Faster Attacks

Gloves
Flesh and Stone - Maim - Precision - Pride

Boots
Molten Shell - Cast When Damage Taken - Blood and Sand - Portal

Top 4 - POE 3.7 Slayer Build - Scourge Arrow Guide

This is a Scourge Arrow Slayer build that focuses on stacking physical, cold and elemental damage. I currently have 60% Phys to cold conversion and enough DPS to melt down all content.

Pros & Cons:
+ No uniqueness required for the build to work, therefore works as a league starter
+ Clear all content including new Legion encounters
+ Engaging gameplay with Scourge Arrow
+ Possible to add Vaal Rain of Arrows for even faster clear
+ High chance to evade/dodge
+ Freeze
- Can't do no leech or ele reflect maps
- Low on life, can sacrifice dmg nodes for extra life if needed
- It's not a Worb zoom zoom build

Ascendancy:
1. Headsman
2. Overwhelm
3. Endless Hunger
4. Brutal Fervour

Bandits:
Help Alira for extra res and crit multi

Pantheons:
Major God - Soul of Lunaris
Minor God - Soul of Gruthul

Gear:

Top 5 - POE 3.7 Slayer Build - Elemental Hit Guide 

This Build is based on my scion version. With the new changes to slayer, it has become somewhat obsolete. It still works and is still very good to do all content with, slayer is just better now.

This is not a budget build! However, you can easily make this better than the Resolute Technique build without having to spend much more. You can then build from there; the ceiling is very high.

Pros & Cons:
+ Very high damage for very low investment.
+ Strong clear with good movement speed.
+ Scales to over 4 million single targets DPS.
+ Easy to play.
- No Ele reflect immunity.
- Doesn't use too many new shiny toys.
- Damage ultimately caps out based on gem levels.
- Requires manual dodging.

Ascendancy:
1. Headsman
2. Endless Hunger
3. Bane of Legends
4. Brutal Fervour

Bandits:
Help Alira

Pantheons:
Major God - Soul of Lunaris/Solaris
Minor God - Soul of Shakari

Gear:

Gems Setup:
Weapon
Elemental Hit - Damage on Full Life - Elemental Damage with Attacks - Mirage Archer - Combustion -  Fire Penetration

Helm
Cold Snap - Cast when Damage Taken - Immortal Call - Increased Duration

Gloves
Blink Arrow - Anger

Boots
Decoy Totem - Blood Rage
