    PvP Trapper Res question...

    Hey all, I've finally built my first trapper...she's lvl 93 c/c - 102fcr/86fhr/9frame traps @LS10-11k/32% dr/3klife/750mana/and 104 res all. Overall I'm very happy and am really enjoying this build. I found a sweet pair of claws and the rest has fallen into place. My question is, are my resists ok for 1v1 and/or team pk? I recently got stomped by an foher and began to question my charm selections. Should I drop a skiller and add more res sc's? I know foher's do insane damage so I'm not overly concerned, and I also have a lot to learn play wise so I'm just not really sure whether it was me or my toon... I'm looking to make an as balanced build as possible with little to no real gear switches. I appreciate the help. :thumbup:

    My setup leaves little wiggle room so I'm stuck to charms if I need to bump res. Here she is:

    Helm: Griff's w/cham
    Armor: Ancient Armor Enigma (red pants woot!)
    Belt: Spider Belt
    Boots: +2/21 Dancers
    Gloves: Trangs
    Jewelry: +2/17fcr amy + 2 x 10fcr life/mana/res/leech rings
    Primary Claw: +2Asn/55 ias/+3LS Runic Talon socketed with 15/15
    Secondary Claw: Chaos Runic Talon +3MB +3LS (love ww even just for mobility)

    Thanks again everyone.

    Griffons isnt the best choice of helm considering that -res and + res doesnt apply to traps although the LCS says otherwise. I use a 2 assassin 20 FCR 20 Str 20 all res socketed with cham.Traps count as minions so they stay the same, shock web/fireblast will get benefit from it (and facets) though as they are direct spells.

    I assume you use fade since you shouldnt really need the speed with those claws and what level is your weapon block?

    Griffons is the best choice since you need the FCR.

    Thanks for the replys. A valk would work as well for the helm, but other than that, I'm stuck with the griff's for the fcr as Sass noted. I sort of went by tenjie's LS trapper guide to build her and he swayed me over to 102FCR :crazyeyes: Anyway, so how do my res look? What I listed is also before anya. Is 29 stack enough? How high do I need to go? Thanks.

    -Yes I use fade and hit 9frame trap laying
    -Weapon Block is at 56% :(

    Should I respec and put the points I had in fade to weapon block? About 8 points...

    Also, for the FOHer, should I use Spirit and a wiz for the stack res and take the drop in damage? I will net 174fcr so there's that too...Thanks again.

    If foh bothers you that much, then go for it. The loss in damage is worth not dying.


    Still, there are other methods around conviction, but not so easy on a trapper.

    Yeah, traps just aren't right under 102fcr.

    Against foh, while the res stack will help, but you really want to try and keep him from firing it off at all if you can.
