    need help on my first assassin

    this is the first assassin that i will be creating and i was wondering what i should do. currently, i'm thinking about making a pure melee assassin with this build...

    skills:
    max ts
    max cm
    x pts in bos
    x pts in shadow warrior
    and all prerequisites

    stats:
    str: bare minimum
    dex: enough for block @ clvl
    vit: the rest
    nrg: nothing

    gear:
    shako
    fury suwwayah +dragon flight (if thats possible)
    enigma dusk
    stormshield
    draculs
    verdungos
    gore riders
    angelic ammy
    angelic rings

    that is what i've been thinking about for my sin setup. anyone know how to make a better pure melee sin? comments welcomed. thanks in advance.

    strength and dexterity are both very important skills to work on

    I completely agree with headstrong, especially with melee assassin!

    about the skills, my tipps are (out of own experience) go for shadow master, she realy kicks. and Death Sentry. i know its a trap, but it totaly wonderfull!
    it is that trapp that realy makes assas kill large, LARGE groups of monsters in notime.

    thanks for the tip but this assassin is for dueling only.

    this is what i have been thinking about doing as far as skills go...
    max claw mastery
    max tiger strike
    max shadow warrior (for the def)
    max bos
    max cloak of shadows (last)

    does that sound like a good skill setup for melee assassin?

    if you wanna keep stormshield id suggest chaos claw instead, it does alot more physical dmg and has magic dmg + has +1whirlwind which comes in handy.

    also are you fighting agaisnt melee only? if not i suggest using 2 claws and get 60% claw block which blocks elemental attacks aswell as physical.

    also 1 point into mindblast and wake of fire (or lightning sentry) really helps for stunning your opponent.

    Tiger strike works goofy on a weapon... supposedly the ED is added to the weapon ED instead of multiplied the way most skills do.

    I'd suggest using another charge up skill besides TS. My preference is Phoenix and another charge up to synergize.

    Another option is to use Dtalon (and not use a charge up at all)... If I remember correctly you get the AR bonus from claw mastery on your kicks. Furthermore, If I'm not mistaken you can get the bonus magic damage from Chaos on your Dtalon kicks.
