if you go abyssus you should focus on getting armour gear to increase physical damage reduction, maybe drop acrobatics if you feel confident enough.

also an option is to put a Tempered Flesh in the jewel slot on the left side of the tree (Marauder Area)
Also to consider for jewel: Glorious Vanity: with Soul Tether



BiS Item for Leveling is a Praxis Ring who will completely remove cyclone cost with 6 links for the entirety of leveling! Just look out for the "-to Total Mana Cost of Skills" roll, this should be 7 or higher

For Leveling we'll start of with Cleave and grab Chance to Bleed on level 1

At Level 4 we take Ruthless and swap out Chance to Bleed for it

At Level 8 We take Maim Support or Added Fire Support for our 3link. Depending on if you prefer leveling the gems that you need later on or want to be a bit smoother earlygame with the fire damage.

At Level 10 we grab Leap Slam and later Support it with Faster Attacks Support

At Level 16 we pick up Flesh and Stone and support it with Maim Support. Now you can grab another Maim Support for our DPS if you felt like attack speed was okay, otherwise we take Faster Attack Support for our 3-link dps so we're a bit faster.

At Level 18 we pick up Close Combat Support and throw it in our weapon swap.

At Level 24 we pick up Pride and Dread Banner. I suggest not using Pride right away tho, cause cleave will cost you some mana, once you swapped to cyclone and got the mana leech node, you'll be fine tho(level 28)

At Level 28 we can transition to Cyclone with  Melee Physical Damage Support + Close Combat

If you're running into Mana issues, take Spirit Void until you got enough damage to sustain mana without it.

At Level 31 we pick up Impale Support use it as 4th link.

If we got a 5link at 35+ we'll throw in Brutality Support aswell.

Now leveling should be a breeze. After 3rd lab we throw in Infused Channelling Support.
