[3.1] Kinetic Blast Mines Shadow (Saboteur)

Intro & build description

Kinetic Blast currently is one of the fastest clearing builds out there, mines makes it safer as well. Great build for solo play and insane damage + clearing potential even in 6 man groups. I would suggest to level up in party though, since build takes time to ramp up and become very powerful. Once in maps and you have your 2x inspired learning unique jewels, you will feel like you are playing with headhunter equipped since build clears very fast and it’s very easy to keep up buffs from rare monsters. If you haven’t played with headhunter, this is as close as it gets without owning one.

Build Pros

  • Mines
  • Safe playstyle
  • Clearspeed is insane, you kill whole screens of mobs with couple of mines palced
  • Not expensive to start with
  • Good option for league starter since no unique items are required for build to function
  • Build is meant for people who want to farm maps quickly

Build Cons

  • Single target
