    At level 50 it gives 50% physical resists, and as a trapper you won't be using 10 shadow gcs so you might as well forget that. Burst of speed of course since it also increases trap laying speed.

    Fade gives +1% DR per skill point spend, so at lv 20 you get 20% DR. A Shaft/Storm/SoE can help you save quite some points her that will be spend well in BoS (+skill items will also help).

    Just see what equipment you will use..its not THAT hard to get good res without Fade in hell.

    If you're untwinked and C/C getting good resist in hell without Fade is quite hard. :)

    Yeah..but that guy didn't say what equipment he uses.

    Lemme see...30 res all from Anya and an Ancients Pledge, thats already 73-78% res all..untwinked. Now..how far does untwinked go? With all the crappy rings I get from Ormus and for saving caine, there is 1 at least "usable", meaning dial res. Untwinked means you are allowed to gamble, right?

    Dual res boots, gloves and even triple res belts with +life are actually not uncommon at all...and if worst comes to worst, you can THUL/RAL/OHM helms and armours.

    The way I play, I still use 4 in Fade and BoS and boost it with magical claws that have +skills. (+2 Assassin skills are not uncommon). That way you can have at least +4 on switch. I also found that Normal Eldrich has dropped a few amazing rare ammys and circlets for me (e.g. 20 res all and secondary mod, +1 sin skill and 3-4 resists...etc.)

    Well I say you should use Fade becuase it really looks like you need resist. If you really need some extra trap laying speed you could always use a Shael rune in your claws. Also if you want a suggestion for a belt I say Arachnids Mesh is the best for trappers.
