Help With PvM Dragon Build I say Dragon build because I don't specialize in just one Dragon finisher. Anyway here's what I've got so far: Level 79: 20 Blade Shield [Note 1] 15ish Weapon Block [Note 2] 20 Fade 10 Burst of Speed [Note 3] 4 Venom [Note 4] 14 Dragon Talon (Main Attack) 10ish Dragon Flight [Note 5] Okay through these notes I'm going to explain myself because I have a reason for what I've put skills into. [Note 1] Blade Shield sucks on its own, I know. But, I did some reading on the Assassin guide in the compendium, and Blade Shield gains poison damage from Venom. So I'm trying to maximize the usefulness of Venom and damaging as many enemies as possible. [Note 2] I've seen lots of kickers with a regular shield, but I sat and thought, after reading the guide, Weapon Block can block spells, and stays at its block percent while you are running. So I find weapon block to be a superior form of defense. [Note 3] This comes in handy a LOT, even though I know Assassins should specialize in either Fade or BoS, not both... Good for running on various runs, getting back to your body, and the increased attack speed is nice for situations when you don't need the resistances. [Note 4] I plan to max Venom, or at least put as many points as possible in it when my main attack skills are maxed, because Blade Shield AND Finishers benefit from it. [Note 5] Dragon Flight is useful in MANY situations, and is actually also helpful for running, too, as long as you have enemies in your path to cast it on. I plan to max it as well. So yeah, notably this stuff all means I won't have a Shadow Master to summon, unless I drop a point in it and let +to skills support it. I want my ASSASSIN to be the one doing the work, not my minions. I'll probably need a Master in hell though, because I'm having trouble, plus thats what this topic is for, your help and suggestions. Equipment: Helm: Trang-Oul's Guise, for the looks and mana support. Armor: Currently sucks, a 3-socket 400 def armor that I plan to 'Nigma when I get the runes. Weapon 1: Main weapon, Shadow Killer Battle Cestus. Helps a TON with the Frost Nova coming out 2-3 times per kick burst, slowing everything around me. Note that kicks gain mods from the primary weapon, which is why this one is here. Weapon 2: Secondary weapon, Jade Talon, for the +skills. Also, using dual claws for Weapon Block. Ring 1: Dwarf Star, plainly because its the best I have. Ring 2: Manald Heal, see above. Ammy: Nothing. Need an ammy. Gloves: Trang-Oul's, for the set bonus with helm and the damage boost on Venom. Belt: Dungo's, accept no substitute! Boots: Currently, Marrowwalk. Plan to get War Travelers and upgrade them to Myrmidon Greaves for the kick damage. So yeah, thats what I've got. My goal here is to get as much kick damage as possible, so try and focus on that for your suggestions. Help is much appreciated.
