You forgot venom, that is a must for any kicksin.
Other skills like a trap (wake of fire), blade fury, shadow master and the must have of assassins mind blast are also very helpful.

Hope i helped

But I thaught venom only adds damage to your weps and not your kicks?

Venom will also add damage to your kicks...and your very fast attack speed combined with Venom's short duration makes for a good combo.

trust the people from this forum... they really know what they're talking about... and to make a decent kicksin you'll need venom... it's going to be one of your major sources of damage... probably wanna get some crushing blow and open wounds from equipment aswell :thumbsup:

There are a lot of times when you can't trust your character screen....sad but true. Most of the time it displays correctly but there are lots of bugs or errors with it...just try a Grief weapon and you'll see.

yupz.. trangs is awesome! gotta love the +2 curses.. lol :lol:

j/k... anyways... trang's is great for the 25poison damage and 20 (25?... meh) fcr.

my recommendations for a kicker would be to go duel claws... weapon block is an awesome skill... although it needs some investement... it can even block some magical attacks in the game... making it a great defensive asset...

you should also look for some elite boots to wear... an upgraded gorerider's would probably be the best option but even a decent rare elite boots with frw/fhr and tri resistances is great.. :clap:

between gaze and shako.. i would definately go for shako... the +2 skills boost ur kick damage and ur venom damage aswell as adding life, mana and some damage reduced aswell...

another helm that you might consider using would be Crown of The Ages (2socket) which great fhr, resistances, damage reduced and the felixbilty of the 2 sockets... :clap:

Im probably gona stick with Pvp.
just to let you know... the life leech and the mana leech has been nerfed ever since 1.1. more or less life leech and mana leech is useless in PvP now... as you won't really receive much leech at all when u hit something...

if it is for PvP i would highly recommend using shako over vamp gaze... the stats on it would kill gaze face down in PvP. :thumbsup:

Im also wearing Ramble should I get coh Instead ?
Well some people would say yes, i would say no way!
There was a post that involved alot of calculations and showing why bramble was the armor to use with venom. Another great one would be nat's armor with 3x5/5 psn facets, altho some people would disagree.

My point is it all narrows down to a matter of what you can or can't afford and within those, what you try and prefer.

I had a kicksin ( 1st assassin ) and have a wwsin, both with venom and i can say bramble really means a huge boost on dmg. Venom does psn damage over 0.4 secs IIRC so that's almost instant dmg. Other damage sources as it has already been said here should come not from raw phys dmg but from mods like open wounds and crushing blow.

EDIT:here's a thread and take a look at this as well
