[Sentinel] PoE 3.18 Shadow Lightning Trap Saboteur League Starter Build

  • + The build has worked great in EVERY league since its inception in 3.5❗
  • + Does all map mods. (If no regen, use an enduring mana flask)
  • + Does all content and scales extremely well. (FEEL the power growth)
  • + Not a meta-life build! (Why be pro-life when you can be no-life❗❓)
  • + Use mostly rares. (League start & scale to an epic endgame)
  • + Can kill endgame bosses on a 5L. (
  • + Works in HC. (High-Block! 7-10k ES, ES regen, ES OnBlock)
  • + Easy to start. (Play as life till mid-game then go CI or LL)
  • + This builds endgame slaps❗ (Check the videos, see if you agree)
  • - If you're new, ES can be tricky starters. (My guide will help you❗)
  • - Honestly, having played many other builds, it's hard to find downsides on this one, which is why it became my favorite. (Perhaps needing a Shavs as is the case for all low-life builds)

How to league-start this

I've personally league-started this in every league since 3.5.
Follow the guide and simply level as a life-trapper.
Depending upon whether you want to re-spec some points, you can add temporary life nodes and change them later to ES (check the image in leveling 1-28+ section).

Around the time you reach maps, consider buying cheap ES items for all slots/cheap ES uniques (check budget armor in guide) and switch to Chaos Inoculation full ES build. This is strong enough to carry you to early red maps while you save currency for a Shavs armor.

When to switch to ES

It depends on your experience and your budget.
Some switch as early as act 7 to CI/ES, others level to maps before switching.

If you do not have/can afford a shavs body armor I recommend to pickup cheap ES gear for every slot and choose Chaos Inoculation in the tree. This way you can continue working on stacking ES gear, while gathering currency and get used to being an ES build.

For your shavs, often you can save currency early league by getting the prophecy cards instead.


Leveling 1 - 28+

POB found under the skill-tree category.

PoE 3.18 Shadow Lightning Trap Saboteur Leveling Tree

Note 1: Always path right side first of the skill-tree towards the trap damage points: Blast Cascade, High Explosives etc. I suggest getting the trap throwing speed points ASAP (Expeditious Munitions).
Note 2: These are tree's for full ES. Adjust them with some life if you feel the need while leveling, however mostly i'd just suggest using gear with life stats until you can switch to either low life or CI and then low life.
Note 3: As you progress from Lvl 28+ take a peek at budget items in this guide to know what you should look out for/set trade filters for while you are leveling.

From level 1, you should use Explosive Trap in a Lifesprig, or whichever wand or sceptre you have.

If you're in a Fresh league start, consider doing the vendor recipe for a lightning wand, it's a nice damage boost early on.

1x Magic Sceptre/Wand/Dagger
1x Topaz Ring(for Lightning Damage)
1x Orb of Alteration

At level 4, you should add Bear Trap for single target damage (use it on bosses or difficult rares, it helps a lot).

At level 8, your Explosive Trap link should look like this.

✔️ Explosive Trap ➡️> Swift Assembly ➡️> Added Fire Damage Support(optional if you have the STR for it)

At level 10, you should add Flame Dash for additional mobility or when it's available for you - until then, you should use frostblink.

At level 12, you can finally transition to your signature skill, it's available after the quest; the siren's cadence. Replace Explosive Trap with the following Lightning Trap link.

✔️ Lightning Trap ➡️> Multiple Traps Support ➡️> Added Lightning Damage Support ➡️> Pierce Support

By level 16, your Lightning Trap Lightning Trap should look like this (gems placed in order of priority, so remove based on how many links you've got).

✔️ Lightning Trap ➡️> Multiple Traps Support ➡️> Trap and Mine Damage Support ➡️>
Controlled Destruction Support ➡️> Added Lightning Damage Support ➡️> Pierce Support

At level 24, you should add Wrath Wrath for additional damage.

At level 28, you should add a Lightning Spire Trap gem setup, this will improve your single target damage by a great deal.

✔️ Lightning Spire Trap ➡️> Trap and Mine Damage Support ➡️> Lightning Penetration Support ➡️> Elemental Focus Support.

While you continue from lvl 28 and onwards, remember to check the GEM section to get the proper setup going when your levels meet the requirements.
Pierce is an optional gem, decide on your own if you prefer it or rather want more raw damage.


Ascendancy: Pyromaniac -> Perfect Crime -> Born in the Shadows -> Chain Reaction

Pantheon: For Sirius boss-fight, get upgraded Arakaali and Shakari.

Bandit: Help Alira for the 5 mana regen/s, 15 to all resists, and 20% crit multi
