[1.1.6.0] (Hybrid) Scion of the Void - Melee Chaos Saboteur [c+][sr+]

Despite thinking that I’m done with posting builds (as I’ve made almost everything I wanted in the original game), I’m still here with rather nice and strong build of unusual concept: Chaos Saboteur.
Sabo is known to be one of the weakest classes ever as NB and Demo has very little in common and even less in terms of Chaos damage.
Actually, I thought it should be a failure but after tests the build showed itself pretty good.

BUILD EXPLANATION

  • Armor - 3 pcs of Rah’Zin’s Torment as it is the best melee chaos set;
  • Amulet - Conduit for extra resists and stats and RR mod to Veil of Shadow;
  • Weaponry - Voidspire for supporting chaos FS and Fang of Chthon for RR;
  • Medal - racial damage, BWC conversion;
  • Helm - for +1 to all skills.

PROS AND CONS OF THE BUILD

PROS

  • High damage and very high chaos RR (-126%) fully compensate low flat damage;
  • High racial damage against Cthtonians, Undead, very high - against Humans so they melt in seconds;
  • Dynamic and aggressive gameplay;
  • Nice both solo- and AoE-damage.

CONS

  • Build is still somewhat squishy (not as sturdy as chaos WH) so don’t charge in battle mindlessly;
  • Reaper of the Lost can be a problem despite high RR and racial.

CRUCIBLE - can do better but I’m too lazy now for trying more.

Reserved for some goods.

Alex gave me the build for testing, didn’t realise it was yours. Here is Cruci vid with a slight skill alteration:

Dmg is surprisingly good for such low WD.

How does the build feel compared to Rah’Zin WH?

Thanks!
It’s a little different gameplay. Overall it’s slower, of course, but it has ability to kite around the cocktail a little, when things go wrong. Below 5 is possible but requires many runs and reckless piloting.

Thanks!
I’m even more happy there’s one more working Sabo and - what’s more - working on a damage type he’s very weak related to.

lol i was just trying to theory craft this build but getting frustrated by the low OA and low HP. then i see your build guide, your gear choices are almost identical to what i chose but i was trying to use serenity. build is a true glass cannon, but good work making it work in high shards.
