"The artist need not to be present to make a lasting impression."

The Saboteur focuses on improving his traps and mines with utility bonuses and additional traps and mines.

This builds have great map clear speed and serious firepower with very low investment. You can choose it as your end-game build (need very good reflexes for end-game though!

POE 3.5 Shadow Saboteur Lightning Spire Arc Build

 

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • +great map clear speed
  • +serious firepower with very low investment
  • +end-game viable (need very good reflexes for end-game though!)
  • +massive life regen (up to 20% per second and even more with Tinkerskin)

Cons

  • -Squishy as low Life pool (hard to go over 5k)
  • -Pretty slow with a wand and Flame Dash
  • -sketchy for HC

 

Build mechanics in short

Trap Support has no cooldown now in 3.3 and you can throw 15 Traps instead of 3 (in the end-game you can have around 23 traps at a time on the ground). THIS IS A BUFF, so now it's all about your Throwing Speed + cooldown for lengthy 8 second Traps.

Arc is a lightning, chaining spell with highest amount of chains in the game. Chain means it will "zap" between enemies. In 3.3 Arc does 15% MORE damage per remaining chain. If 1 enemy is on screen it will be 105% more damage, which is DOUBLE the damage. So it's now good against single target.

We will use Arc+Trap in a shaper 5L gloves for clearing maps and 8 second fat Lightning Spire Trap in a 6L for bosses.

Run around, throw traps, don't run INTO packs or you will die. For the same reason i don't have a dagger and a shield here. Even with Acrobatics, this is still a pretty low HP build. Going ES route is pretty much same, maybe a little better.
Don't stand near bosses or you will die.
