Introduction :

Hi my name is Ryvenn and i usually play Path of Exile as an Arc Trapper every league because it just feels so great for me to just throw things on the ground and wait for Arc to kill those mobs for me - yay! So im creating this build because i was successful at killing Uber Elder and This build is a Balanced approach on the game to make sure you are able to finish all content. You also do not need to worry about crit chances since we will rely on the 105% MORE DAMAGE MULTIPLIER from ARC's "15% more Damage for each remaining Chain" so this build just focuses on getting more flat damage and "extra chaos damage from shaper stat sticks"


Why Traps?

Spoiler
Traps are actually convenient to use and easy to scale - Since Arc is a Spell which means it scales with It's Gem Level - we do not need to worry about getting a lot of damage nodes(Because we can get a lot of damage from Other sources) and just focusing on getting more life for our Tree and Equipments. Trap Mechanics are easy - all you need to do is throw the traps near a Mob and it triggers after a second delay(if it is triggered by a mob).

Traps or Mines have a Delay of 5 seconds to trigger itself if not triggered.

If you want to know how to disable the delay click below.
Spoiler
You can disable this delay by Equipping a Sunblast Belt ( 80% Reduced Trap Duration ) and 2 Cheap Construction Jewels ( 20% Total Reduced Trap Duration ) though i do not recommend doing this unless you want to test something



When do I use EB[Eldritch Battery]?
You use EB when you get Tinkerskin. because Tinkerskin can give you 200 ES everytime your trap goes off

Q : Hey EB got Changed in 3.5 can i still use it?
Spoiler


What are ENCHANTS?

PROS
Spoiler

+ You are able to survive one Shaper Ball
+ 7k+ EHP [ 5k Life + 2k Mana for MOM ]
+ Clear Speed is Fast AF
+ Great DPS even if you only use a mininum budget - EVEN GREATER IF more currency is involved.
+ End-game can be reached with this Build ;) ( just know how to dodge stuff )
+ 20%+ Life Regen (23% if you have 23 traps) with TinkerSkin ;)

CONS
Spoiler

- Can sometimes be one hit by an unknown force in 280+ delves and t16+ maps
- Haven't tried HC so i do not recommend.

UNIQUES SECTION
Spoiler

BUILD ENABLERS - Without these we will not be able to do what most of the build can offer but of course there are other sources where you can achieve better stuff than what i have intended for this guide but it will definitely feel different.

Spoiler

This Body Armor is our Whole Build. without this we cannot use EB which makes us sustain a lot of mana and with the EB change which is like a buff to us EB users... its Godly Good. :)


This Ring helps us Reserve NO mana at all - which helps us use Clear Mind(A Jewel that Increases your damage as long as you dont reserve mana) giving us full advantage of getting more than 2000 mana Unreserve to give us at least 5k+ EHP


NOTABLE UNIQUES

Spoiler

This helmet has what we need Life,Mana and 20% to all Resistances at MAX and a big PLUS because it will only cost you less than 2c to get it :)


These boots provide Life, Evasion against spells and 30% Movement speed - Who doesnt want that? Works really well with Phase Acrobatics.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Spoiler



Q. What's the ideal DPS i should look at if im not using a CRIT build?

- if your POB shows at least 70k-100k or more DPS using the same guide... you're on the right track - GO BEAT UBER ELDER!



Q. How About Shimmies(Shimmeron)?

- Shimmies is still Viable even in this league - but you have to SACRIFICE a lot of things you're going to use this.

Q. Mines VS Totems VS Traps ?

- Mines are stronger than Traps and Totems but the Clunkiest ( Unless you have coded an Autohotkey for it which i do not know how )

- Totems are for people who Values Mechanics more than anything else - they just put their totem on the battlefield while runnning around.

- Traps are the most convenient out of all of three it also might be the weakest(depending on the items) of all of them.


Q. How do i play as a Trapper?

- You take advantage of Boss Fights before you start the fight - you put all your 23 traps in place and then start the battle ~ giving you a huge damage burst that can sometimes kill bosses(But not Uber Elder and Shaper) in less than 5-10 seconds.

Q. Why is Lightning Spire on a 4link rather than Arc?

- The main reason for that is DAMAGE(For Arc) because Lightning spire will deal a lot of damage if its a 6link but giving the 6link to Lightning Spire means also Sacrificing your DPS for Arc - of course its still okay to do it that way but 4link - Arc is for Mobs not for Bosses so if you try and go against Uber Elder you will naturally have a hard time since your Arc Doesn't do much damage ( Especially on the 1st and 3rd phase of the Uber Elder fight - but this will only work if you have a lot of damage - in this case if you we were still able to use Shimmerons )

what do you think the best order is for ascendancy?

In incursion I started with Pyro > PC > Chain > Born, but I'm thinking of doing Born > Pyro this league because the blind node is so powerful.

Hi! I did the same thing you did back in Incursion as well... because the QOL you get with Pyromaniac is so useful when you are going inside Merciless and Uber lab, - You can still actually go with Born then Pyro if you want to be more Defensive because the blinding an enemy does gives us +50% to evade them.

I'm thinking do your build for my starter on next league. What would be the most optimal way to level with 0 leveling uniques. And how is the mana early levels with arc traps?

Hi - Thank you for the interest!
In early levels of arc traps... you only need a 4link - Arc - Trap Support - multiple traps - and any other Damage Support gem for your arc traps... to lessen the mana needed to cast arc, and in terms of exploring and killing packs you just need to throw one right click to clear every pack you see. but when i started leveling with 0 leveling uniques as well - mana wasnt much of a problem since we do have mana flasks :)
