    PvM Trapsin Questions

    1st time playing a trapsin for me. Probably looking to do 10 in FB, then 20 for the rest of the lightning traps, and 1 in everything in Shadow Disciplines except venom. I can't say I'll have this guy maxed to 99, so I would probably get all the points in Shadow early or at a decent point, then fill the rest of the synergies out. I guess my first question would be how bad would that be, if I'm planning to do group Baal runs? 2nd question would be, what am I looking for in terms of gear during my Normal and Nightmare runs? Again, can't say I'll have this guy maxed, so I'm not too worried about the upper level gear right now.

    Thanks a lot.

    Clarify that a little; and doing baal runs isn't --- bad. Boring perhaps.

    Anything with 1+ skills to assasin/all/traps. Then you want resistance, additional health, ias.
    Ort+Sol = Lore helmet.
    Anya, will sell 2+trap claws, 1+traps in normal, 2+in hell (maybe even 3...)... abuse the portal and buy a pair of those.
    Vipermage or silksmage would be advatnage to have; you might even be able to scrape together enough for a Treachery.
    1+ or 2+ amu.

    I'd save flawless gems, jools, rals/tals/ort/thuls/amns... and any other items you find to sell.

    Also, get the insight runeword for you merc + anything with leech/CB.

    Gear is hard to say, as if you're not leading the runs (and you shouldn't without solid gear anyway) you technically shouldn't need any at all. I was usually naked till at least 80 in leeching off the group baal runs, so that doesn't really say a lot.

    dual bartucs or spirit/spirit will help until hoto or real trap claws - note that shopping for claws is relatively inexpensive, but the time it will take to get +3 Trap +3 LS or +2 Sin skills +3 LS will be quite.....slow.

    death sentry is your friend in PvM. i'd max LS first and then DS. as far as the shadow tree i'd go one point fade, one point burst of speed. skip the shadow buddies, you won't need them.

    1 point in fade should help you for group baal runs.

    like the other guy said anything with + skills is what you want for a trapper. you can basically just gear her like a caster. spirit sword/shield. add infinity merc when you can afford it for a serious damage upgrade.

    I'd rather max out FB if your merc isn't that powerful or if your lacking infinity.
