[3.3] Xoph's Saboteur — Non Crit Seismic Trap Xoph's Inception build - Killing Guardians in a budget


Hello here! We all know, that Arc Traps is OpOp. But I really want to try seismic when first seen it in preview. I'm a Dune fan, that why.
Seismic trap have alot of flat phys damage and can deal nice AoE without cluster traps. But.
1. Huge cooldown (8 sec)
2. Flat phys damage is hard to get in tree.
3. 5% crit chance

So, how we can boost our damage?

Main Idea
Spoiler

Full convert to fire. With Avatar of Fire and this

Later we need Signal Fire quiver. That cost not so much right now.
We can boost our damage with items that add fire damage from phys damage. Like shaper amulets, signal fire and Xoph's bow.


We can use Elemental overload for 40% more elemental damage and trigger it with orb of storms. That how we make a damage


Core
Spoiler

Like I'm said core items is signal fire and Xoph's inception. We can use Nurture to for safe our passive points, but Inception grants more damage buff.
Also we use Herald of Ash, flammability and bear trap
That's all for our phys to fire setup.


Gem Setup
Spoiler

With reduced cooldown nodes we still have over 4sec CD for seismic. That's bad. That's why We need to use another gems. I prefer bladefall trap because this have better aoe and damage that new explosive trap (that's pretty bad, I think)
Seismic is good for tuff ones - blue, green and bosses. Whith all traps we have pretty good damage. Like I'm said - build in Progress. Right now I pretty well clearing temple in 50lvl, killing all bosses in seconds.

Thanks. I've been searching high and low for any interesting traps that do converted damage and isn't Arc currently for sake of variety and using one of the new skills. Do you have a guess how viable it is? Do you die a lot with this build?
Uh, accidentally double posted to some weird forum lag.

Killing Atziri at 78lvl with crappy gear and 4l. I know that my grandpa also can kill her, but... That was fast and smooth. Pretty fast farming maps and killing all stuff. I think that build can kill guards later
Added some video with gameplay
Updated passive tree and lvl 86 progress
