    Need help with a PvM Assassin!!!

    Ok, here's what I have so far:

    STATS
    100 (?) Strength
    100 (?) Dexterity
    Base energy
    The rest Vitality.

    SKILLS
    20 Tiger Strike
    20 Dragon Talon
    5 Weapon Block
    1 BoS

    This where I need help. My main choices are max Lightning Sentry and Death Sentry for a nice Corpse Explosion and lightning damage, or max Claws of Thunder/Blades of Ice and Phoenix Strike.

    The traps would be nice because I wouldn't have to do much but watch. Claws of Thunder would kick some *** with it and Phoenix Strike maxed it does roughly 1-2000 damage. Blades of Ice does 600 only, but freezes. The bad thing about the claw attacks is that I will be mainly kicking and using +skills and crushing blow % claws, so the claw damage physically would suck. The traps, though, are less accurate and are slower, but don't require me to risk dying.

    Any criticism here is GREATLY appreciated from your experience, but keep in mind this is PvM, going through ladder with equipment I FIND ONLY!

    If this build sucks, which is the best pvm build except pure trapper?

    I wouldn't suggest going with a Kicker build untwinked, as you will absolutely need a pair of Myrmidon Greaves(pref. Upg. Gore Riders) for your DTalon, or it'll turn out useless. In any case, I wouldn't max TS along with DTalon, as TS's bonuses only apply on the first kick of DTalon(the follow-up Kicks are uncharged), so it's a better idea to just go pure DTalon and don't using chargeups along with it.

    You won't have to worry about doing no claw damage with PS/CoT, as most of your damage should be coming from PS/CoT itself(claw damage plays an insignificant role, as it only affects one target).

    Instead of this build, I'd go with a untwinked Lightning Trapper, as that build truly does not need any specific item to succeed. Look under the stickied "Assassin Builds/Guides + Forum Rules" thread for jrichard's excellent guide.

    As I said I don't want a trapper...they bore me. Any other PvM suggestions?

    Oops, missed that line. If not a pure Trapper, I'd go for a pure PS Assassin:
    20 PS
    20 CoT
    20 FoF
    20 Venom
    10 WB (after +skills)
    Rest in CM
    1 SM
    1 MB
    1 DF

    They don't require much specific equipment either(after some +skills and FHR, maybe PDR).

    Does anyone know if a PS sin can do hell at all from experience?
