    Building a new C/C MA Assassin

    I'm in the making of a new MA sin, and I have two builds in mind that I have som questions about. I will use Treachery, one Bartuc and one Jade Talon regardless of the build.

    The first one is one using DC as main attack. But accept for a few points in WB, maxed DC and CM, I don't know what to put the skills in. In the case of using DC, I will choose Atma's amu for the ctc Amplify.

    The other build is a TS/DTail/PS/CoT sin. Here I would use a Highlords, for +1 skills, LR and IAS.

    Any suggestions on which one would be most viable in Hell?

    I recommend the second one. TS/Dtail is a solid combination, with PS/CoT being one of the variants. Understand that CoT (2nd and 3rd charges) and PS (2nd and 3rd charges) both suffer from NextDelay, meaning you basically can only use one at a time.

    Never tried DC, but I remember that someone (maxicek would be my guess) wrote a mini-guide for a DC assassin. Try searching.

    I've decided to go with the DC variant after reading maxicek's miniguide. I'm just hoping that I can get it to work without Nat's set, since I'm missing the claw, which unfortunately is pretty rare. Just can't decide which claw to use with Jade Talon though. Since DC isn't helped that much by +skills, I'm thinking that Shadow Killer would be a better choice.

    Correct.
    Add Guillaumes Face, Duress, Gores and you are good to go.
    That guide was written for someone who wanted to use the set. It will work better without it.

    I am working on a full guide. I may post a draft next week.

    I've got one in the works, just about done NM, and loving it. Amp going off is fantastic. DC's got great AR.
    Also skipping Nat's set, though for different reasons (even though I have the claw).

    Looking forward to the full guide.
