    my assa... anything wrong ?

    Hi all

    I am planning to make myselve a new assa, for PvM use ONLY. It will be a NON-trap using assa (since i already have a trapper), depending only on martial and shadow skils.

    I have made a set-up, including skill point allocation, and items use, which i need some comment on from the assa experts on this forum.

    First the items:
    Claw 1: bar tucs
    Claw 2: bar tucs
    Helmet: shako
    Armor: chains of honor
    Gloves: +2 martial arts + 20 ias crafted gloves
    Belt: verdungo
    Boots: dunno yet, have to be myrmydion greaves for sure
    Ring 1: raven
    Ring 2: bul
    Amulet: mara
    Inventory: 8 * martial skiller + anni + some more sc’s

    Skills:
    Tiger strike: max
    Dragon tail: max
    Phoenix strike: max
    Claws of tunder: max
    Dragon flight: 1 pnt
    Cobra strike: 1 pnt

    Burst of spead: 1pnt
    Weapon block: 1 pnt
    Shadow master:1 pnt
    Mind blast: 1 pnt

    All prereq’s 1 point

    Total 94 points. (finished at lvl 82)


    With this set up i will have +12 to all skills and +12 to martial arts, making the shadow skills lvl 13, and the maxxed martial arts lvl 44.

    I am not so much worried with my stat points allocation, that will work out just fine over time.

    So far … so good.


    Now the questions:
    What to soccet my bar tucs and shako with?
    ? Jah for ITD in tucs?
    ? Resist all in shako?

    Do i have enough ias to reach fastest attacking speeds? (i thought yes, but just checking to be sure)
    Or do i have to much ias? (in which case i can look for other nice mods on gloves)

    In general.. will this work? Is there anything missing, or something i overlooked?

    Looks good. A few comments/suggestions:

    1) Boots: Shadow Dancers/Upg. Gore Riders (I'd go with Shadow Dancers, you don't really need the OW/CB/DS)/
    2) Claw2: Possibly Jade Talons, if you can't get high resists in Hell.

    Skills look fine(this is a pretty cookie-cutter TS/DTailer, in fact). Consider some points in FoF after maxing the other skills, to boost Meteor damage.

    Questions:
    1) IMO, no. You should have more than enough AR, between the +40% from akimbo Bartucs and TS/DTail themselves.
    2) Sounds alright.

    You'll need 26% more IAS on equipment to reach the speed cap on Kicks. To reach the speed cap on TS attacks, though, you'll need 42% more IAS. <this is assuming you're using Fade>

    However, with your +skills, even 1 natural point in BoS will get you over the both speed caps with plenty to spare(even without the 20% IAS gloves, which you can switch out for something else, without affecting your speed).

    thanks nali, that was the advice i was looking for... and indeed... i missed a few things.

    the ias thing... i was pretty sure i needed another 20 ias or so next to my BoS, but that seems all set now. i will look for other mods on my gloves.

    the jah in bartucs seems a bit of overkill indeed, might as well use that soccet for a resist all juwel to get resists to max.


    i DO however still have one problem left... the boots.
    since i play NO ladder i don't think any of the options you gave are availeble :xeek:
    as far as i know upgrading a unique can't be done in NO ladder realm. and those nice unique myrmidon greaves can't be found :xx:

    do you have any suggestions where i could get myselve a nice pair of myrmidon greaves?

    thanks again
    GF

    Shop for magical ones with usefull mod (a friend of mine found blue myrmidon with 40% frw for example), or try imbuing white ones.

    You can also gamble a pair of rare boots. Rares can be upgraded non-realm, so you could find a pair of greaves or war boots with good mods and cube them up to myrmidon greaves.
