3.8 Saboteur SoS Magma Orb Miner || Insane Blight Clear || Softcore All Content ||
Hello everyone this is my first time sharing a build on the forum I hope it will be fun and helpful for those interested.
First of all Magma Miner is a build I first saw in 3.5 in forum and played on 3.6-3.7 while making some changes to original build.
Path of Building // Passive Tree
path of building pastebin: https://pastebin.com/5aPHakCA
-Insane AOE Clear
-High damage Output even in single target reliable on Uber
-5-6 exalt is enough for the basics of the build
-High hp pool with Mind over matter helping
-Can do all content (My main in Blight)
- Ranged mobs can be scary until your projectiles reach them
- Relies on mana pot heavily although it never runs out (lol)
- not for HC content , not a face tank or lifeleecher
- Not a starter build
Basics of the build
Build relies on a few items which you can also see in items section
-Sire Of Shards 6link
-Magma Orb lv21
-Helmet with Magma orb chains 2 time enchant
-Gloomfang (very cheap)
-Lavianga Spirit ( very cheap)
-Dying Sun ( Optional-Kinda cheap)
-Inevitablity Jewelx2 (Very cheap)
Magma orb needs to be in sire of shards so it can nova the projectiles very important dont forget
In the build we try to maximize our projectiles and chains. Getting to 6 chain is pretty good and helps our clear a ton.
I've used full fire dmg on top of the passive tree and with the extra jewels it feels good.
Put Orb of storm on single target enemies so they get cursed with projectile weakness for extra dps
Check the Path of building and passive tree for jewels and their positions.
Other than magma orb 6l and Projectile weakness curse on hit rest is pretty optional but I will share all
Sire Of Shards - 6link
Magma Orb lv21 - Blastchain mine support - Trap and Mine Damage Support - Elemental Focus Support - Minefield Support - Slower Projectiles Support
Faster Projectiles can be used while leveling and for fast clearing maps but sucks on killing bosses/rares so you can switch it out but eventually endgame is all Slower Projectiles
Curse on Hit Support - Orb Of Storms - Arcane Surge Support lv3 - Projectile Weakness
Flame Dash - Faster Casting Support - Arcane Surge Support lv8 - Increased Duration Support
4link+2link Body Armour
Steelskin lv16 - Increased Duration Support lv20 - Cast When Damage Taken Support lv17 - Phase run lv 16
Detonate mines - Cast When Damage taken lv1
Leveling , ascends and bandits
For leveling you can go with arc mine/traps with tabula rasa and switch to Sire of shards at lv 49 with magma orbs, which will boost you. Dont get Mind over matter until you are high level like 80+ . You need a decent mana pool for that. Go for inevibility jewels after lv49 and you can wait until 86-88 before getting any jewel spots for abbys jewels. Check the Path of building for better understanding of the build.
Bandits- Kill all get skill points
Ascend by order goes as : Bomb Specialist - Demolition Specialist - Pyromaniac - Born in the shadows
Good luck to All that want to try out this build hope my first build post was helpful at least.

I actually tried a variant of magma orb earlier in the league. The slowness of the balls is what I disliked (didn't even use slower proj support). I couldn't make it work but I went for a different setup than you did, but did have some of the same stuff: Dying Sun, Level 21 Magma orb, Gloomfang, etc.
I think Sire of Shards is the gamechanger item along with helm enchant and dying sun since the combo of them gives a TON of extra balls bouncing everywhere.
On a side note, was watching the Shaper video, holy crap your fps dropped to single digits. I guess too many balls will drop people's systems to a crawl.

Yeah without SoS magma orb is a almost completely different skill, you really need all the chains and projectiles, but enchant is very cheap this league. Shaper video OBS messed up idk why, I was getting 30-50 fps in game during that video reliased after I uploaded the video but too lazy to record again maybe I will upload a new one.
Edit: Uploaded a new video that my pc could handle better

Thanks for the build! I'm up to level 82 so far and having fun with a 5L SoS and blue magma orb skin. :)
