Icicle Mine Saboteur

By | October 8th, 2019 | Categories: Trap/Mine Builds

Mine builds have become less prominent than they used to be, and for a wide variety of reasons. Path of Exile: Blight, however, has changed that. With a few significant tweaks, this particular play style is back and better than ever. A good example of this is the Icicle Mine Saboteur. Yes, it hurts as much as it sounds.
