    How to continue build?

    Lvl 73, Phoenix Striker...

    Skills:

    Phoenix Strike: 20
    Claws of Thunder: 20
    Fists of Fire: 20
    BoS: 5

    How to continue the build? I pretty much have everything I need... Should I get Blades of Ice, or BoS, or upgrade my Shadow Master even further?

    Hm....I'd put the rest of my points in WB to boost it until slvl 10 after +skills, with the remaining points going into either CM or Venom.

    Oh geez, forgot to mention, C/S :xx:

    I'm strongly suggesting to myself for Shadow Master... but I'll go for CM and Master!

    Definately not Blades of Ice. The third PS charge is mostly for slow and not for killing.

    When you say "upgrade your Shadow Master" what level is she now?

    Whether you get Burst of Speed depends on what weapon you're wielding and whether you've hit the fastest speed with it yet or not.

    I have another option, but I doubt you'd like it ;)

    I think putting points into blades of ice is viable if you plan to use it as a skill. Bovine is correct, however... in saying that the third charge of ps is not useful for anything other than freezing.

    I've been trying out some dual claw tests and I never knew that dual claw racked up two charges per attack?! I found this amazing in conjunction with FoF and CoT. Makes me rethink the entire build.

    What do you mean "two charges per attack"?

    Attack once, both claws swing and two charges appear.

    I had never known about that.

    It'd kind of interesting... mixing and matching blades of ice with claws of thunder. Dual charging both in two hits.

    edit: On a side note, is it just me or is the martial arts assassin extremely underpowered? =/

    Redsand, you've obviously never seen a Tiger Strike/Dragon Tail martial artist. Phoenix strike can dazzle, but TS/DTail with some myrmidon greaves and a bunch of +skills can rock a crowd of monsters.

    yes a non-kicking MA is [generally] weaker

    Mecha Sheep I would suggest either CM for AR (because the main damage is the element no?) or Weapon Block if you're having trouble reaching the 55-65 range a second rate option would be your finisher (in my case at any rate as Nat's can't kick worth ****)
