    fire or light traps?

    Right now, lvl 15, fire seems a lot better... but I havent gotten to the lighting sentry yet

    But on nightmare/hell is fire or light traps better for PvM MF?

    Lightning is much better.
    -Fire immunes are by far the most common in Hell.
    -The highest level fire trap is bugged to do much less damage than stated.
    -Lightning traps have a built-in backup for lightning immunes: death sentry (and fire blast if you like).

    Is fire viable though, if you want an unique build? Shock web or merc can kill fire immunes

    Don't even get me started on shock web. Whoever that put the 25 frame next delay shall be shot. Besides, the damage it does is absolutely pitiful, even wtih maxed light traps for synergy.

    And if you use infinity, most Lightning immunes will be broken, allowing your lightning traps to damage them (albeit you won't do much damage to them).

    Lightning is just that much stronger, as well as fire blast gets synergized by the lightning traps for an alternate attack, while the fire traps don't synergize any non-fire attack.
