Assy PKer question (non trapper- non ww)

whooa I haven't posted on here in a lonnnng time lol, but yea..to the question .. I was wondering what other builds rather than trappers and ww would do good against all classes? I remember back in .09 when Claw/Shield would do well and then their was those rich assys who could afford to make a uber claw/claw sin..which were real expensive back in the day.. but yea, I was thinking about going claw/claw or Claw/Shield - Hybrid ... any advice would help alot .. I don't want to go ww or trapper or kicker, I hate all these common assissans now days. It got old fast.

If you did't mean trapper, i would suggest kicker :>. I don't really think there are other possibilites. Maybe a bear assa tho?

Non-trapper, whirlwind or kicker? Gah! You have pretty much ruled out every sin that has even a half chance against another character.

Except of course the 2fpa Werebear sins.... Plus that allows you to go Claw/Sheild :smile:


Go Go Werebear!

You could try a blade fury assa or a bowsin. Widowmaker is fun to use.

For pk'ing, you could make a tiger strike assa. Charge up on nearby monsters and release the huge damage onto the players. With botd, forti, phoenix etc.. you would have enormous damage, the only prob is delivering it.

Martial Arts assassins with Tiger Strike or Fists of Fire (like we used to use in 1.09) simply aren't viable now. Elemental Attacks do far too much damage to tank, 90% of the melee out there simply overwhelms anything that just swings. You're poor range 2 claws will end up missing constantly, not for lack of AR, but because of the nature of WW and Smite, the two most common melee attacks. Duelers do so much damage that getting 3 charges and releasing them will practically never happen.

I miss the old sins too, but those builds really are dead.

Rhetorical question....

But the point is that it is hard to pvp with non-mainstream builds, I mean they are mainstream for a reason....

If you want non-mainstream pvp builds try these:

Thrower/WW Barb (Fun!)
Poison Java (except, if you rule kickers too mainstream then these probably are too)
Maul Bear (Man... this one is so hard to get right.)
Fire Druid (or too mainstream for you? This one is fun too though)
Bow Sin
Bow Sorc
Sacadin maybe?

There are plenty of other random ones out there... Just find a decent damaging skill that is rarely used and go for it (The only catch is that most of them are in use)

fb assassins are fun, that guide is bad however.
It's also pre 1.11 and outdated, not that it was good to start with.
