    Idea on a titan kick assassin

    I want to build a kicksin that doesn't rely on open wounds and venom to do the killing, and not on crushing blow in PvM. Here's the idea:

    20 d.talon
    20 dragon flight
    1 cobra strike & tiger strike
    20 shadow master
    20? mind blast
    slvl 26 weapon block with +skills

    Stats:

    Energy: muhahah
    Vitality: base for once
    Dexterity: 79 for bartucs, so probably base with a ravenfrost and anihilus
    Strength: everything

    I'd use shadow dancers instead of up'd gore riders, use martial arts +life or life sc's to make up for my life loss, and have around 2000 dragon talon with 5000 dragon flight. How's that? :idea:

    well, ive though about this kind of build too. This was my idea:

    20 DTalon
    20 Venom
    1 Death Sentry
    20 Fade
    rest in shadow master or something...

    my idea is to use azurwrath for the magic dmg and a ss for higher melee block. I would also stack a few SD charms in invetory to up the venom dmg. preferably i think you want slvl 30 DTalon.

    this way you add 500 magic dmg and about 1000 venom dmg to each hit. 2k physical dmg isnt much but with the magic dmg and venom it should work better.

    id love to hear how she turns out.

    I was thinking this with a pvp mindset since i often simply killed too slow to make a difference with my 1000 kick dmg + venom + openwounds assassin. She could kill some sorceresses etc but that was all.

    2000 damage however is huge, considering it's at 2fpa. I'd go no venom, since it's easily resistable. You're right i forgot fade. With no vitality she'll have a hard time surviving. I'd be aiming for either slvl 36 or 42 d.talon with martial arts skill charms. Shouldn't be too hard. I'd max dragon flight too because it'll do a buttload of damage and has tons of ar. That'll put the opponent into hit recovery. I was thinking 20 mind blast since each kick will then surely put the opponent into hit recovery.

    20 d.talon
    20 fade
    57~58 block with weapon block (needs the points, let's play not get hit)
    20 d.flight
    20 shadow master
    rest in mind blast

    Basically, you dragon flight in, your shadow hits with quite some nice dmg, then you do your 2fpa painful kicks :drool:. Equipment would be like this:

    2 bartucs (one shael, one str/dex/fhr jewel or something)
    Andariels visage demonhead (ias jewel)
    Enigma
    shadow dancer boots
    skill ring (bul kathos)
    ravenfrost
    mara's amulet
    20ias +2 martial arts +str gloves
    Thundergods belt or something

    Anihilus small charm
    10 martial arts skill charms
    life/resist small charms

    That should give decent resist in hell, but i'm a little worried about the low life.... like this what i'm able to afford now, i'd end up with like 500~600 which is fine for pvm but might really hurt in PvP.

    Might mercenary too btw (gogo dmg!)

    kicks are not effected by claw mastery.

    I still think you should go with an azurewrath if you want high dmg...my ww sin does more dmg with each kick after pvp penalties than your build will do...

    i dont quite get why you want to pump mind blast?

    consider shako for the nice life bonus...if you can find ias elsewhere...

    Well i think that 600 life for pvp isnt much to go around with in pvp (guess you know that as well :lol: ). Even if you have 10 skillers wit say 3x life its still 'only' 900 life. So most pvp'ers will hurt you quite alot. Think fire sorc, boners, poisoners, rabies etc etc.

    So base vit will be hard to do but it sure is fun :D

    My 2 cent (euro centjes voor ons dan :p)

    The one frustrating thing is, you're basing your dex needs for items that are higher levels than Bartucs. Raven Frost has a level req of 45 and Annihilus is level 70. Hope you find some +5 dex large charms in the meantime

    Titan build isnt worth attempting, I learnt that from experience. The difference between a 1.6k talon and a 2.8k talon especially with 7 kicks sounds great, but practically you wont notice much of a difference. And unless you have godly items, 500 life will get you killed in 1 hit by just about anything. I scraped up to 1.8k life and found out that it still just wasnt enough. Although the power a titan dragonflight is pretty awesome.

    Crushing blow owns.. just my two cents for a PvM kicker. Basically youcan stack up on CB and stick with 1k-1,5k kicking and do VERY good. While i was leveling my PvP kicker she was pumped full of CB gear to make life easier on her and she was VERY fast at killing non-phys imunes :)
