[2.6] Shaper Deleter: Chaos Firestorm CI Trapper Shadow (Saboteur)

Intro & build description

Build specifically designed to kill Shaper as quickly as possible. Build uses cluster traps support to create multiple overlapping Firestorms that are partly (Or fully if using legacy gear) converted to chaos damage that is further boosted with Wither. Gear can get pricey if you want all the top tier items for your character but people with smaller currency pools should also be able to pull this one off.

Build Pros

  • Huge damage (millions of dps)
  • No problems with elemental reflect
  • Large AoE and fast clear
  • Can kill Shaper, Uber Atziri and other strong bosses extremely quickly

Build Cons

  • Needs a little investment - 6linked Infernal Mantle is relatively costly

Hubris Circlet

Stat priority:

1.)Energy shield (Look for at least 270-300 ES)


3.)Stats (Intelligence, Dexterity, Strength)

Body Armour

Infernal Mantle

Best in slot chest for this build because it converts your fire damage to chaos. Try to get at least 5-linked chest, but ideally you should aim for 6-linked.


Sorcerer Gloves

Stat priority:

1.)Energy shield (Look for at least 170-200 ES)


3.)Stats (Intelligence, Dexterity, Strength)


Sorcerer Boots

Stat priority:

1.)Energy shield (Look for at least 200-220 ES)


3.)Stats (Intelligence, Dexterity, Strength)

Note: you can also get boots with increased movement speed, but they will only cost more and will provide limited value because we are using Whirling Blades as our movement skill.

1Hand Weapon

The Consuming Dark

This build uses 2x The Consuming Dark daggers for maximum fire to chaos damage conversion. Also allows us to use Whirling Blades.


The Consuming Dark

This build uses 2x The Consuming Dark daggers for maximum fire to chaos damage conversion. Also allows us to use Whirling Blades.


Onyx Amulet

Amulet is not that important for this build but you can boost damage pretty well if you find very good amulet – look for stats that scale our build:

1.)Increased Fire damage

2.)Increased Chaos damage

3.)Energy Shield & Resistances

Left Ring

Two-Stone Ring

Stat priority:

1.)Energy shield – look for as much ES as possible.
Good option is to use masters to craft %increased maximum Energy Shield on your Ring.



Right Ring

Shavronne's Revelation

Let me note that this ring is NOT mandatory for the build but can be a nice addition. If you cannot afford it, just go for rare ring like the one previously described.

If you have Shavronne’s Revelation – use it in Right Ring slot for ES regeneration and have one Mana Flask on you.


Doryani's Invitation

Good belt for damage and defensive stats.

It goes without saying but only use %Increased fire damage version.



For flasks go for your own preferences but rule of thumb would be to have:

1.)Mana flask if you are using Shavronne’s Revelation

2.)Granite flask for Armour

3.)Basalt Flask for physical damage reduction

4.)Quicksilver flask for movement speed

5.)Either Atziri’s Promise or Resistance flask of your choice


Cobalt Jewel

In Jewels you should primarily look for following stats:

1.)Increased Chaos damage

2.)Increased Area damage

3.)Increased Trap damage

The Jewels in Link are combinations of all 3 these stats and can be expensive – 2 of these stats on 1 jewel would be great too.

Optionally look for:

1.)Increased Energy shield

2.)Resists (if you need them)

3.)Stats (if you need them)

About gems

Always tries to keep up with the game, its ever-changing mechanisms and explain them in understandable manner.


  1. Does this work in HC?

  2. Why Orb of Storms?

  3. still viable in 2.6?

  4. at level 41 atm, have next to no damage, no health, and no energy, can’t get past belly of the beast part 2 without sprinting past it, i still don’t know why this is a trap build since it doesn’t seem to have any trap gems in it.

    • Try using Tabula Rasa for damage. We do have traps – in body armour you can see Trap Support which turns our supported firestorm into trap, Cluster Traps support makes us throw multiple traps that overlap for more damage.
      You should probably upgrade gear if you have no life and ES, get pieces with as high energy shield and life as you can find and you should be fine.

  5. Hello, curious as to of what we do for stun? is eye of chayula an acceptable amulet – Thanks, Chero

    • Sure, Eye of Chayula is good choice. You can also pick up Kiara’s Determination flask if you don’t want to use Eye of Chayula.

  6. Hi, is it possible to kill ubers and shaper with a 5 link?

  7. how do u got 8.4k ez i bought all the gear i could and only got like 7.4k es can u tell me how

  8. DO the unique jewels affecting traps help this build? Ie 10%less duration 1 extra trap

  9. modifing the tree like : http://www.poeurl.com/bisX with a Eldritch knolege jewel wouldnt scale more damage ?

  10. i really like this you guys builds, i just wish you would break the skill tree into 10 or 15 level steps so i can tell what you took at what level. otherwise great builds.

  11. Has this been updated for 3.0?
