    ORen_Ishii: You didn't think it was gonna be that easy, did you?
    Baal: You know, for a second there, yeah, I kinda did.
    ORen_Ishii: Silly rabbit.

    Armour: 'Treachery' Ethereal bugged Ornate Plate.
    Weapon: The Reaper's Toll


    Finds
    Hellforge: As usual I can't remember NM, but I got an Um in Hell.
    I was very happy to find a 14% Shimmering GC of Life in the Jungle. 15% of Vita would be better, but it is a significant improvement over a plain one. I also found a Harlequin Crest in the Jungle. It must be ingrained in me but I am still happy to see these and pick them up, even though I have loads in my stashes now. Probably because it is one of those "must have" items when you start out.


    Random Thoughts

    So how did she play?
    Well pretty much according to the guide. Dragon Claw got a bit of a damage boost in 1.13 so that was good, but even with Fortitude the damage isn't spectacular. This definately isn't a /players8 build, although I did play through pretty much all of Hell at /players3, except for The Ancients and WSK. I probably could have done the WSK at /P3 too, but I was wanting to finish her by then. Death Sentry and Cloak of Shadows sort out most problems, but she wasn't without Deaths. Burst of Speed means for very quick gameplay (race Anya), making Dragon Flight necessary to pull your Merc back to you.

    What difference are there in practice from the guide?
    I think Stephan already covered the two main difference in his Mat thread.
    The main one is that Weapon Block does not work well with this build. The 10 frame cycle for the two Dragon Claw hits is easily interrupted, leading to block lock. After dying to a pack of Rat Men in the A1 Nightmare Catacombs, I used my NM re-spec to get rid of weapon block, as was very happy I did. The fact that Shadow Master went to wasn't a big loss. (Why is it Shadow Master anyway? Shouldn't it be Shadow Mistress?)
    The second is the insane AR boost of Dragon Claw and Claw Mastery means that you need very little base AR. The 115 Dexterity I needed for Runic Talons, one Steel GC and a Ravenfrost gave me 8.8K AR. This allows you to focus you equipment slots on things other than resists, and use the inventory to cram full of resist charms to make up for it.
    Expect a guide update in the next week or so.

    The CTC on the Chaos must have made for some nice effects?
    Yes, not bad, although the Frozen Orb is more for the chilling effect than the damage. I chose to use Chaos because they are the highest physical damage claws I have, and the magic damage and open wounds makes them better than any other choice. It was nice to actually proc the ctc effects though as you obviously never see then when using Whirlwind. Taking a decent screen shot was tricky, this one with Shenk is about the best I got.

    Any future plans for her?
    I will give a few alternative gear setups a try for my guide, then retirement. I'm not planning on levelling her further. I used pretty much the best gear I could for her, so want to see how some lower budget options work.

    What next?
    Clearing up a few projects at the moment. I'm doing lots of levelling of PvP characters at the moment, mainly in Baal runs. I will probably start paying Travincal a few visits again soon. I have a lvl 82 light sorc to finish - a bit more levelling then The Ancients and Baal.
    I'm also playing the last of my Faith 2h sword sept through at the moment, Illian the Amazon. She is Ravenclaw equipped and in A2 normal. I'm still not 100% decided on what build she will be though.



    Thanks for reading. I suppose there is a cookie in it for the first person to post where her name comes from, but only a small one. It is pretty easy...

    Its really sad that they've neglected giving us more weapons to choose from for assassins. Nice write up maxicek, almost made me want to do an assassin again. Good one!

    Re: Matriarch ORen_Ishii - Aggressin

    Nice build:thumbsup:

    I'm working on one of these myself, and I rather wanted a 'chaos' claw, but couldn't bring myself to make it in a runic talon.. you've got two!

    Did this build feel underpowered to you? Mine is in A2 hell, and I'm not that impressed by the damage output, despite the 40 skill point investment in Dclaw/CM.

    Kill Bill. Gieb cookie!

    Oh yeah, cool character and nice write-up. I've been using Dragon Claw as a finisher on my MA a bit, how do you feel about Shadow Killers instead of Chaos?

    Re: Matriarch ORen_Ishii - Aggressin

    Thanks for the replies everyone :)

    *Passes cookie to Doctor Clock*
    I'm afraid the cookie is not quite up to water_moon's standards though.

    Of all the sets and uniques, they are the most damaging claw and are obviously indestructable, which is good. What I don't like about them is the level requirement - I'm normally well into A1 Hell by level 78 and I prefer to have my characters fully equipped by the end of NM.

    Yes and no. If you just rely on DC to kill stuff and try and play like a Frenzy Barb yes. If you use CoS and Death Sentry well too, no. In terms of DC damage though, the problem is getting decent damage claws. The ED bonus is good, especially if you use Fortitude, but 600% of nothing is still nothing. A decent rare is still the best option, but I think 2x 'Chaos' Suwayyah would be difficult to beat. I used Runics because they are what I had from my PvP characters.

    Repairs were costing me about 80-100K a pop. I muled on gold to take care of this, but I think it is still do-able if you play self sufficient and sell stuff to fund repairs.
