    perf gear for trapsin

    I would like to hear a few peoples thoughts on the perfect gear for a lightning trapsin so i can go and get it all. dont bother mentioning trap gcs because i cant afford to fill my inventory with them. Any other ideal charms would be nice though.
    Thanks

    hmmm little hard to suggest 'perfect gear' if even the +trap gcs are not affordable. Every thing else i could list for 'perfect' gear costs as much or alot more....

    Lightning trapper is dependant on 2 things -- high +skills to increase damage and some method of breaking light immunes in hell. Both are expensive.

    Are you playing multiplayer or solo?

    im playing multiplayer. also i failed to mention this is PvP and i will most likely be getting rushed the entire way. Now as far as i know decent skill GC's are some outrageous amount of hrs (correct me if i am wrong). Now i can afford a lot of things and may have most of them all ready. to give you an idea of what i can afford i have approx. 10-15 hrs.
    hope this helps in your judgement

    hardly perfect, but here is what i am wearing:

    shako um'd
    maras
    soj
    bulkathos
    enigma
    arachnids
    magefist
    waterwalks
    +3 trap, + 3 lightning sentry claw socketed with 2 shaels
    +2 trap, +2 lightning sentry, +1 blade shield, +1 shadowmaster claw

    on switch call to arms and lidless wall (not enough strength for spirit shield)

    9 light gcs, anni, torch, 9 life/mana/fhr small charms

    merc has infinity, fortitude, eth vamp gaze....


    some better gear to look for -- helm with 2 assy skills 20 fcr, str, 15+ all res
    -- second stone of jordan -- boots probably should be eth treks -- life/fhr 2nd mods on gcs -- and second claw could also have +6 total to light sentry too


    hope that helps

    You spend 8 HRs on Maras, but don't equip trap skillers? Wow, the economy is completely screwed. You'd do better with a Metalgrid and 4 trap skillers.

    it's the new craze, sometimes people drop sojs if your mf is high enough and you're wearing nagel and manald heal rings.

    Wait, I'm not supposed to PvP with skullders, chancies, war travs, gheed's, nagels, 40 mf ammy? No wonder people have been calling me a noob lately :)

    Are you on East, West or Europe? Ladder or Nonladder? As far as I know you trap skillers are the cheapest skillers around. The assassin torches are cheap too. I can see people already listed the gear. Good luck on finding soj's in pvp :wink3:

    Every tried shopping for Curse, Druid Summoning or Barb Combat GCs?


    Anyway, I too am a proponent of dual claws. Just I prefer 2sin claws over 3 trap claws, to boost your Mind Blast, Claw Block, Fade, etc.

    Anyway, what was listed earlier was very good gear, but here is my opinions of the optimal.

    2 sin/20 fcr/other mods circlet (2x Shael).
    Enigma
    Arachnid's Mesh
    Magefists (Because Fire blast is cool) otherwise Trangs for the resists.
    2 x 2sin/3ls claws, Main hand has 40ias and 2x 15all res/ias jewels, off-hand has a mod of choice and 2x 15 all res/7 fhr jewels.
    Eth Treks/ Fhr/resists boot (must have 20% fhr)
    2 x SOJ
    2 sin/fcr/ other mods Ammy (or Mara's and a FCR ring)

    1x Trap/FHR gc
    8x Trap/Life gcs
    Torch
    Anni
    Res/Life scs

    This gear nets huge +skills (+6 all, +11 sin, +9 Traps, +6ls), decent resists, 86% FHR, 65% FCR, speed in order to use fade, etc.
    Ideally 9 points would go in weapon block for 60% block with BC.

    Anyway, that is perfect and well outside your 15HR budget, but eh.

    Laz

    The more expensive parts of the equipment laz and i are suggesting -is the helm and the gcs.

    The 2 sin/20fcr helm with decent mods on it like high res, str, or dex can go for astronomical prices. Even a crap one will start at hr -- with decent mods can be 5-20 hr or more on east ladder

    The gcs plain are um - with fhr 5 to ? hr each-- with 30+ life 4 to ? hr each. 40+ life will be 15 hr or more each!!

    Claws hopefully you can shop or find decent enough -- good ones on the market for a pure trapper can be insanely priced.

    total cost on 'perfect gear' could well be over 200 high runes if you trade for it all. You would be the luckiest guy on the planet to find it all yourself :)

    The faster hit recovery was what i left out of my description of gear -- very important to even try to dual high res ww barbs. Maxing ls out to 14k can make fhr less needed since killing will be quick. But facing an absorbing opponent you will need the fhr to survive hits on yourself while your traps wear them down

    --I have dueled with mf gear on before -- nothing better than nailing someone and having them want to see gear. Its like kiiling them twice LOL
