Possibly decent dueling char, Advice needed Hi, I have been playing d2 since back when it was released some years ago. I will say that i have made a pretty decent amount of characters in pvm. But...when it comes to pvp i cant say i have ever made a really good one besides a charger-but thats another story. I want to make a dual clawed dragon flight/dragon claw assassin that can do a decent job at both melee chars and mage chars with melee prally being the harder to fight. With the new patch there are some new synergies to dragon claw and claw mastery that make those as a combo very powerful. Dragon flight i have truly never used but i just got to 24 and it is fun, and much better than it used to be. Cloak of shadows i was also thinking about using since it will help against mages. And finally claw block will help immensely against mages and brutes since you can block magical attacks with them. Venom i am not sure about, but i will prally get 1 point into it. So this is what i have- -20 Claw Mastery -20 Dragon Claw -20 Dragon Flight -5 Burst of speed (equipment will do the rest) -1 Claw block (equipment will do the rest since it stops improving at lvl 10) -Not sure about shadow master ? -Also not sure about venom ? -1 cloak of shadows (equipment will do the rest, damn good skill!) 1) Mage Dueling-This build will mostlikely require speed and timing to take out most mages since mages can kill you at the drop of the hat. However, unlike most assassins and any other character in the game-dual clawed can block their attacks which is why i am going in this direction. With cloak of shadows to befuddle and then dragon flight to snipe. I would mostlikely then need to use dragon claw to finish them off or go back to dodging them and using dragon flight. I am still not sure about this setup but that is why i ask you veterans of dueling for help. 2-Brute Dueling-Alright here is where it will get ugly. Assassins are usually good mage killers-this i know from reading about it and hearing about it. But how is my assassin going to go up against a fury druid, a barbarian who whirlwinds, and the monster of them all- a zeal paladin. I am mostlikely going to have to make my guy super quick so he can dragon claw in less than a 1/3 of a second and get out and dragon flight to slowly wean them down. If anyone has any advice on this or experience on this, i'd be grateful.
