    Budget Trapper for starting out

    After reading about D3, I felt like i wanted to come back and play D2 for awhile :yes:

    Of course, characters are expired from before. I decided that to start out, I'd make a Lightning trapper, remembering that they were fairly good with budget gear. Problem is, I really don't remember the right skill allocations, and I remember I tried to make a trapper before and...it didn't turn out so well =\

    I looked through the guides on the sticky, but they seem to be directed more towards PvP than PvM

    Anybody want to give me some information or point me in the direction of something that can?

    Max out Lighting Sentry, Death Sentry, Fire Blast, and Charged Bolt Sentry, get the 1 point wonders and your skills are set. This will give nice LS dmg, DS to clear rooms, and FB to deal with lighting immunes. Stats are the usual, str enough for gear, dex enough for gear or max block, rest into vit. Early on try to get a few +skill items, a spirit sword, vipermagi, lore or peasent crown. Remember that traps are based off of IAS not FCR, this doesn't mean FCR isn't important, you will need some for Mind Blast and Teleport.

    Would a base level 1 Master be viable in Hell? I am playing a pure trapper in hardcore and am contemplating a level 1 Master. I guess you can cast a better Master with dual +3 Master (and obviously better) claws?
