3.5 Saboteur LS/Arc Trap - Starter/Endgame Build Guide | Tanky | Budget | 2~3M+ DPS +VIDEOS

Hello, I'm Durnz and this is my build that I created on Incursion League v3.3. This build can do all content with a very cheap gear and there are options for upgrades. I killed all end game bosses with that low budget gear. The build is very strong and cheap since you don't need a 6 link body armour.



Pro's & Con's

+ Very cheap
+ Good map clear
+ Tanky (Evasion/Dodge/Block/MoM/Blind/High regen from Sab nodes + Tinkerskin armour)
+ Immune to Ignite and Shock
+ Can do most of map mods (only expcetion is No Life Regen mod. It's hard but still possible to be done.)

- Using Flame Dash is not the best movement skill.
- Some endgame items can be very expensive cause Arc is so hyped

Leveling
Spoiler

The leveling of this build is very simple.
You can use Explosive Traps from the start til you kill Merveil where you can get Arc + Trap support + Multiple Traps.
In the act 2 you can get Herald of Thunder and Herald of Ice if you're confortable with 50% of mana reservation. For a fourth link of Arc Trap you can use Added Lightning Damage.
At level 28 you can get Lightning Spire Trap linked to Added Lightning Damage, Trap and Mine Damage and Controlled Destruction.

After that just go through the acts and get the other gems showed in the Gems Links section.


Additional Info - Gear, Gems and Tree Options
Spoiler

If you're using Tinkerskin you can use Eldritch Battery node if you feel it's necessary or if you like it. It's a great combination.

Another option for Body Armour is Loreweave. The best roll of it is Your Maximum Resists are 80% The Life, crit chance, Elemental damage and attributes mods are a plus in this item.

You can also use Enfeeble in the Cast When Damage Taken setup instead Phase Run or Increased Duration.

Sure. I'll work on that now. I don't want to put some endgame gear now because I'm still working on that. I'll probably update about that soon. I'm getting there.
Thanks for the feedback

Was about to say the same thing. Liking how simple this build guide is though. Easy to follow for someone new to the game.

If playing SSF what would you recommend for weapons until you obtain the staff?

Some Spell Dagger + Spell Shield probably for shield charge. Or a good wand/staff from the temple if you get one.
And thanks for the feedback :D

Would like to see what flasks you use, thanks!
