[PoE 3.9] Stormblast Mine Shadow (Saboteur)

Intro & build description

Stormblast mine is one of the newest mine skills and is really fun to play. It covers large AoE, looks cool and obliterates pretty much anything that’s in front of you. Also great as a league starter build, since mine builds are strong even with pretty basic items.

Build Pros

  • Cheap to start and scales well with items
  • Reflect is not a problem
  • Great clear and single target damage
  • Can do all of the endgame

Build Cons

  • Top tier items are kinda expensive (2 Ex+)

Helmet

Rare Shaper helm

Ideally you should look for rare Shaper helmet, ideally Hubris Circlet, but they can be expensive.

Use Metallic + Prismatic fossils to craft your helmet with life and “Nearby enemies have -9% to Lightning resistance”. Hitting good shaper mod on top of that, like lightning damage to spells would be really great as well.


Body Armour

Carcass Jack

Great all-around body armor for the build – AoE, life, resistances and damage.


Gloves

Rare Fingerless Silk Gloves

Look for rare Fingerless Silk gloves with at least 80 life and high resistances.

Another great, albeit way more expensive option would be Machina Mitts.


Boots

Rare Boots

Look for generic rare boots with at least 80 life, 30% increased movement speed and some resistances.


Left Ring

Rare Elder Ring

Look for rare Elder ring base with life, elemental resistances and increased lightning damage. We need this ring to be an elder one, because we use Mark of The Shaper, so until you get that, you can use regular rare rings.


Right Ring

Mark of The Shaper

Mark of The Shaper is an excellent ring for most spell based builds, providing life and plenty of damage.


Amulet

Rare Amulet

Look for rare amulet with life, increased spell damage, increased lightning damage and global critical strike multiplier. If you can get amulet with life and 2 of the other stats, that’s already great.


Belt

Stygian Vise

Look for Stygian Vise with at least 80 life and as high resistances as possible.


1Hand Weapon

Rare Shaper Wand

On wands, we should look for following stats in priority:

1.) Gain x% of Elemental Damage as Extra Chaos Damage
2.) x% Increased Critical Strike Chance for Spells
3.) Adds x-x Lightning damage to spells
4.) Increased Spell Damage / Gain x% of Non-Chaos Damage as extra Chaos damage hybrid mod
5.) Critical Strike Multiplier


Offhand

Rare Shaper Wand

Same as previously mentioned wand.


Jewel

Jewel Setup

On jewels look for following stats:

1.) Increased maximum life
2.) Global Critical strike multiplier / with elemental skills / with lightning skills / while dual wielding
3.) Increased spell damage
4.) Resistances / Attributes if you need them


Flask

Flask Setup

Build uses following flasks:

1.) Divine Life flask with instant recovery and bleed removal
2.) Quicksilver Flask of Adrenaline
3.) Atziri’s Promise
4.) Diamond Flask with freeze removal
5.) The Wise Oak
