    PvP Lightning Trapper sin

    I know this is a build where people will probably say "duh, its obvious, max all lit skills", but really, what, if you could afford it all, would be the IDEAL equipment one could wear (non-ladder, if that helps any). I'm pretty decently rich, and I just acquired a new vex rune, so I could make myself a HOTO now (glad I saved that 4-soc flail) and I didn't think HOTO would be better for anyone except assassins, and they sound pretty fun to me right now. What do you think? What should I wear on my perfect PvP sin?

    And what about the other skill I should max? should i get tons of fast cast and mind blast the crap out of people? max all the lit skills right?

    And stats? What should I do about my stats...?

    Thank you all

    Yep. Max the lightning trap first and then its synergies. However, as an assassin, you need IAS and not FCR to improve casting speed. Burst of speed is also a good idea ;)

    IAS lays down traps, fcr casts MB. 65% fcr, then worry about ias.

    Question for fellow trappers -

    Has anyone noticed what the difference would be between an Um'd Shako (need Um for resists) and a 2x 5% light facet Crown of Ages, as far as lightning sentry damage is concerned?

    I don't want to trade for the 2x +5% light facets unless it'll be the same or more damage. I'm assuming it'll be less, but I'm not sure, just wondering if anyone has tried it. With COA on I've got level 42 traps. With Shako, 43. With shako on, however, I'm working with no light facets at all. Thanks for the help in advance.

    I can help you real fast pal!

    DO NOT USE LIT FACETS FOR TRAPPERS!

    Traps are minions, so they do not benefit from the facets.

    You're welcome ^_^

    So go UM all the way!!

    So basically you only get 1k more dmg wearing the 2 +3 traps claws instead of using HOTO/Stormshield


    Do you want to get max blocking with this build or what??

    Should you wear CoH instead for the resists? I don't think you really need to teleport..

    So would wearing those +3 traps claws be better than wearing HOTO/Stormshield, with all the resists, damage reduce, and other godly mods they give?

    Opinions? Facts?

    I can FINALLY make a hoto (got a vex)...I just don't want to make it if its not worth it.

    HOTO is nice because it will add some resists as well. However, you can theoretically get +3 Trap claws with +3 to Lightning Sentry ;) Gamble! Also, a generic +3 to traps with +all res amulet shouldn't be too hard to come by and could be more interesting than trying to get a Mara's.
