    i was trying to find a best build for nat set too. and i believe ps build is the answer - which is what i have for my current ma sin. i specifically tweaked my build/gears around nat set as follow:

    lvl82
    max ps
    max cot
    planning to max fof and boi
    5 in wb
    1 in df, bos, sm and mb
    rest in pre-requisite

    str: 100 (+gears)
    dex: 50 (+gears)
    vit: rest
    nrg: base

    helm, armor, boots, weapon1: nat set
    gloves: +2 ma rare gloves/soul drainer/dracul's
    weapon2: bartuc's
    weapons on switch: 2x +3 shadow skills claws
    belt: string
    ammy: +2 sin rare ammy
    ring1: raven
    ring2: dual leech rare ring
    charms: anni, life/resists/str/dex

    +8 to all skills (+11 to ma/shadow skills)
    ~1450 life
    resists: all max in hell
    45%dr
    ~53% block (depending on gears)
    30mdr (depending on gears)
    and 6 empty sockets left for further enhancement

    i hesitated whether or not to max all ma elemental skills but in the end decided to go for it just for fun - but i found out that it can be quite effective even in hell. the thing to remember about this build is to think of this build as a kind of fighter/mage - she uses melee skills to cast spells. consequently:
    - physical attack/dmg not as important as elemental dmg
    - more +skills gears = more elemental dmg

    some may argue that fof and boi don't need to max but here's the advantages: boi for lit/fire immune and fof for bosses. and more importantly - it's incredibly fun to see little colored balls flying around you and making your own fireworks by setting off fire/ice/litghning blasts all at once!

    Just a question (btw i'm also a pure Phoenix Strike Sin :thumbsup: ) with ur base 50 dex and taking into account the dex bonus from raven , nats helm ... how u reach the 118 dex needed to equip the nats claw? well equiping first the bartucs with that 20 dex bonus ;) but then ur dominating claw would be the bartuc and not the Nats ... but .. if u weapon switch then to ur second slot and weapon switch back to Nats + Bartuc then the dominating becomes Nats?

    If your goin with dragon tail as a finisher, nats set isn't all that wonderful at that point due to its low kick damage.

    Meh...

    good question - don't know the answer :p ... but my guess is no...
    my own set up is like this: nat's helm(30)+raven(20)+anni(20)=70 + 50=120 without bartuc's - so no problem there. still i don't think it's of any consequenses that u have to have nat's claw as primary claw - as all your attacks are doublw claw. except if u use dragon talon u want to make sure that the primary claw has the mod u want on your dt like crushing blow.

    from experience i know that trappers with nats claw are complete crap...so probably a pure martial sin or hybrid would be the best...but i would advise you to trade the set for more useful items
