The following is Saboteur three most popular skills for Path of Exile 3.6 Synthesis League, Glacial Cascade/Lightning Trap/Arc, and the main build Guide for these three skills are described below.

Glacial Cascade is a cold spell that creates a series of short duration ice protrusions in front of the character. Lightning Trap launches a ring of projectiles through the enemy that set it off, dealing lightning damage to them and subsequent targets. Arc is a lightning spell that creates a chaining pulse.

PoE 3.6 Saboteur Glacial Cascade Build

Glacial Cascade spell has received a significant boost with the 3.0 content update. It is a spell that creates several ice cascades in front of the player that shatter nearly instantly to deal area damage. It has a very similar effect to Ice Crash melee attack. With the most recent updates, Glacial Cascade is purely Physical damage spell with 60% of it converted into Cold. It has also been further enhanced by increasing its' damage by 33% at all levels. As of Patch 3.6, this remains one of the best Starter builds in the game, with insane DPS and very low item cost.

Pros & Cons:
+ extremely fun to play providing completely different gameplay mechanics
+ easy to level up with your end-game staff available as soon as you reach level 40
+ great damage making the entire-build Shaper-viable on as low as 5 Links on your staff
+ decent survivability with Mind over Matter passive
+ reflect mods immunity
- not in the top-tier regarding clear speed
- might feel a bit flimsy if you can't afford high Life/Mana gear
- clearing end-game content will require a lot of positioning/kiting experience


1. Bomb Specialist
2. Demolitions Specialist
3. Pyromaniac
4. Born in Shadows

We recommend helping Alira for increased Mana Regeneration Rate, Crit. Multiplier and Resistances. Killing all the Bandits for two additional Passive Points is also a valid option

Major God: Soul of the Brine King You cannot be Stunned if you've been Stunned or Blocked a Stunning Hit in the past 2 seconds
Minor God: Soul of Gruthkul 1% additional Physical Damage Reduction for each Hit you've taken Recently up to a maximum of 5%

PoE 3.6 Saboteur Lightning Trap Build

This build is focused around the newly buffed Ice Trap gem, which in my opinion is one of the best options for traps in 3.6 now that Arc has been nerfed.

Pros & Cons:
+ Can complete all content with ease once set up.
+ Good clear speed
+ Can run any map modifier (Details in map mods section)
+ Huge damage with little investment
+ Relatively cheap to start with and SSF viable
+ 7k EHP with MoM
+ A really good league starter
- Traps aren't for everyone and can feel clunky
- Doesn't have the clearspeed of the pre-nerf arc.

Perfect Crime - Chain Reaction - Pyromaniac - Born

Either help Alira or kill all. I prefer to kill all but the crit multi and all res are pretty nice from Alira.


Major: Lunaris for mapping and ordinary content, Brine King for Uber Elder pays off much more.
Minor: Garukhan for mapping, but the attack speed debuff from Gruthkul is better for tough bosses.

PoE 3.6 Saboteur Beginner Friendly Arc Mines Build

This arc mine guide, a build that utilizes one of the strongest spells in the game, arc, with mines. There are several benefits to using mines with arc rather than self-casting or with totems, some being the fact that they have a much higher dps output and you aren't stunning yourself while casting for nearly as long, but we will go into that later. This build is the jack of all trades. It can do every map mod, the boss has decently fast clear, and is extremely cheap. Put all of these together and you have yourself an extremely powerful beginner friendly and starter build that can catapult you into end game extremely quickly and efficiently.

The 3.6 changes are rough but it's not really the damage nerf but more the chain range nerf.

According to a spreadsheet with all the %'s for buff / nerfs to spells, this dmg change to arc makes it deal 11% less total damage.

Pros & Cons:
+ Over 7.5k Effective hp with Mind Over Matter
+ Can do any map mod in the game
+ Costs less than 30c to play
+ EXTREMELY easy leveling
+ Explode ENTIRE screen
+ Acrobatics and Phase Acrobatics
+ Can tackle all content
+ High Dmg output
- Has fast map clear but not the fastest: B+ tier
- Allies cannot die auras are annoying

1. Normal Lab- Born In Shadows
2. Cruel Lab - Pyromaniac
3. Merciless Lab - Bomb Specialist
4. Uber Lab - Demolitions Specialist

If you want more Damage, Resistances and Mana Regen go Help Alira... Kill all of them if you want the 2 points and put it on any nodes you feel that you need.


We take soul of lunaris and tukohama because there is no way to proc soul of arakaali easily. This gives us good physical damage mitigation which we are lacking and regen.

Gems Link:
Lightning Spire Trap - Trap and Mine Damage - Lightning Penetration - Added Lightning - Controlled Destruction - Increased Critical Strikes
Lightning Spire Trap - Trap and Mine Damage - Lightning Pen - Added Lightning

Lightning Spire Trap - Trap and Mine Damage - Lightning Pen - Added Lightning - controlled destruction
