    OK.. I'm assuming you are a PvM asn for two main reasons; PvP trapper generally uses Mind Blast and Shadow Master for a tank. And you cant max MB, all traps etc (with so many points in SW)

    So taking into consideration you are a PvM asn, I highly recommend you add points to Fire Blast (FB). Regardless of whether you use an Infinity merc, FB is excellent to kill one or two of the pesky Immune to Light monsters then you can finish the hordes with Death Sentry. When you start adding a lot of points in FB, you will find it does excellent damage.

    *I dont recommend Wake of Fire/Inferno as you just wont have the points spare to max it all and hence be effective.
    *I dont recommend Burst of Speed as extra points are not that helpful.
    *Cloak of Shadows you really want less points in as possible to be truly strategically effective.
    *Blades are a waste since your weapons wont harbor the necessary melee skills to be worthwhile.
    *You stated no Martial so I didnt mention any kicks.
    *You stated max Shadow Warrior so I assume you have no desire for Master.
    *Psychic Hammer is totally useless so stay away from it.

    Stating all above, FB is the really only truly main alternative... and its a good one.

    Good luck

    CoS................ For bad guys with bow, jav, etc.
    Dragon Flight..... Force your merc and SW into action and tele
    Fire Blast.......... Synergy with other traps and kills LI
    Mind Blast ........ Converts and stuns

    With only 2 points left, what good can FB do?

    Enough to kill Immunes to light to ensure Death Sentry wipes out rest. In fact You dont have to add any more to do it (assuming 8 Trap gcs, Torch and usc).

    In fact, with Infinity merc, Trapper doesnt need much of anything to easily defeat PvM in hell. So realistically, Infinity should be Number one priority if he/she doesnt have it.

    And regardless of whether its 2 points left or 20, my breakdown of pros and cons still hold valid. He/she asked for a critique of skills left, not to be pedantic. (And who says he/she is not a level 90+ newish asn diablo player)

    i did not max shadow master I said it can reach lvl 20 without putting any extra points in it

    First of all: I have max in SW, CBS, LS, DS
    1 in all shadow disciples (accept fade + venom)

    I will have about 10 skill points to spare, i am acctually a PVP asn but as you all know MB in duells = lame so i won't max that
