    Help with assassin build

    Hi guys. i've just relised that no build no matter what you put on it or what you put skills into or whatever you do it, it will always be weak against at least one thing. which basically means that NO build is completly indestructable.

    however...

    i want to make an assassin. a PvP assassin. a trap PvP assassin.
    but theres a problem and that is that i have no idea what items i need...
    i have an idea and some advice on what skills to use... but equipment people... equipment. i already read some dudes guide and he said something about hoto and enigma and theres no problem there as i already own 2 of each but heres the question i wanna ask... can you tell me if this is alrght for so far and can someone plz fill in what i need for the spaces i leave blank?? (that means i dont know what to use or put points into)

    Equipment:
    Weapons 1: 2 +3 trap claws
    Weapons 2:Hoto and Lidless wall or Spirit
    Armor: Enigma (Dusk)
    Belt:
    Gloves:
    Boots:
    Ammy:
    Ring 1: ravenfrost
    Ring 2:

    Skills:
    Lightning sentry and all the sentries that power it up
    Shadow warrior
    Burst of speed
    Fade

    I've never made a trapper, but the good ones I've dueled either wear Arach or a crafted belt with FCR/FHR/Life/Str/Resists.

    You want to have at least 103 fcr with your gear, this allows you to keep stunlocks against most people with low FHR.

    If you are ladder, I reccomend Spirit shield. It has much better mods than lidless and since you have enough STR for it you can also easily swap out for a Stormshield against charge paladins with a lot of FHR (Charge+FHR is very effective at escaping mindblast)

    i use hoto, chaos armor, and sanc shield, shako, mara,s soj (depending on who i face), boots with +dex and str (i got some rare boots), and gloves with ias/fastcase depending what you are.

    i maxed all synergies and ls, added one to MIND blast and 1 to Burst of speed. dont know what to do with rest, i dont have a shadow warrior "yet".

    I used to have a trapper I pvp:ed with. Haven't played in a year, so I'm a bit rusty when it comes to equipment, but what I can remember is:

    One +2 ass skill +3 light sentry claw and one that gave +2 of each. That's +9 to your light sentry from claws only.
    On switch, I kept a wizardspike and um'd Lidless wall, to keep my resists and cast rate up.
    When deploying traps I used the claws, and then quickly switched to the wizzy/lidless for resists and spamming mindblast.

    Had a bunch of different equip depening on who I was fighting, but tgods belt is nice against light, infernostride boots for fire, magefists for cast rate...
    Had anni and... 7 or 8 trapskiller. Did 9k with light sentry. And was a real caster-killer, cause of the massive resists. FoH-pallys couldn't touch me neither, cause even with their lower resists aura, I still had 90 light resist.

    I didn't use fade neither, I used burst of speed most of the time. With burst of speed, and really heavy resists, you're a real surviver, and with 9k damage traps you're a real killer. Only had trouble with enigma bonecasters.



    Anyway - my point here is to beef up resists, and keep claws for deploying traps, and quickly switching to resist/cast rate setup when the traps are in place.
