By Angry_Roleplayer - Views: (1614) - Jun,06,2019

Build Summary

This build Trap Support has no cooldown now in 3.6 and you can throw 15 Traps instead of 3. THIS IS A BUFF, so now it's all about your Throwing Speed + cooldown for lengthy 8 second Traps. In 3.7 Arc does 15% MORE damage per remaining chain. If 1 enemy is on screen it will be 105% more damage, which is DOUBLE the damage. So it's now good against single target.

Build Description

This build Trap Support has no cooldown now in 3.6 and you can throw 15 Traps instead of 3. THIS IS A BUFF, so now it's all about your Throwing Speed + cooldown for lengthy 8 second Traps. 

Arc is a lightning, chaining spell with highest amount of chains in the game. Chain means it will "zap" between enemies. In 3.7 Arc does 15% MORE damage per remaining chain. If 1 enemy is on screen it will be 105% more damage, which is DOUBLE the damage. So it's now good against single target.
We will use Arc+Trap in a shaper 5L gloves for clearing maps and 8 second fat Lightning Spire Trap in a 6L for bosses. Run around, throw traps, don't run INTO packs or you will die. For the same reason i don't have a dagger and a shield here. Even with Acrobatics, this is still a pretty low HP build. Going ES route is pretty much same, maybe a little better. 

Pros & Cons:
+ great map clear speed
+ serious firepower with very low investment
+ end-game viable 
+ massive life regen 
- Squishy as low Life pool 
- Pretty slow with a wand and Flame Dash
- sketchy for HC

Ascendancy:


1. Pyromaniac
2. Perfect Crime
3. Chain Reaction
4. Explosive Expert

Bandits:Alira or Kill All.

Pantheons:
Major: Soul of Solaris, Arakaali is also incredibly strong with the regen we get from Ascendancy. 
Minor: Soul of Ryslatha
