Path of Exile (PoE) – Icicle Mine Build (3.10 SSF SC) (guest blog post by Syrion)

Welcome Exiles, to my Icicle Mine Build, which I was playing in 3.10 SSF SC.

I played since multiple Leagues Mine Builds and now I made this build, based on my experience in SSF Delirium League.  I try to keep my builds informative as much as possible, but easy to understand for new Exiles. This is just the start of a collection of Guides, with a Focus on League Starters, especially SSF.  The link will be updated as soon I have access and the time to do it, also feel free to help me improve the cornerstones as Items/Pathing on the Tree/Gem links.

Note to Patch 3.11:

The crit multiplier changes, won’t affect the build as much as it looks, it will stay a  solid League Starter for 3.11. Path of Building is up to date with the Community Fork version.

Pros & Cons

+ League starter & SSF (Solo Self-Found)

Not Gear dependent

+ All map mods

You can do all Types of Maps incl Reflect or Temporal Chains (but it doesn’t feel good)

+ Easy to gear

 Icicle mines is a spell-based skill and not gear dependent,  icicle mines also benefit from a wide variety of stats.

+ Safe and easy to play

Icicle mines are projectile-based. You don’t need to go near any monsters just to kill them, you can stay a safe range from the monsters to kill them.

+ No Need for Cast Speed

Mines do not need cast speed, the speed for laying mines is fast enough so you won’t need as many mines laying speed for it to feel good.

– Mine playstyle

Like with Totems, not everyone’s „piece of cake“

– Not the strongest mine skill

There are Better Mine Skills out there.

– No life/mana leech

You will be relying on life and mana regeneration or flasks for recovery because mines cannot leech.

Why Saboteur? and not Deadeye (Ranger)

SSF and League start for following Reasons for Saboteur:

Early game damage & survivability

no real Gear requirement

has early access to Icicle mines

access to nodes icicle mines nee
