    Stupid Idea?

    Well I've seen many lightning/WW trappers, I was wondering if it was possible to make a Fire/WW trapper. I know usually fire is used for stunning, but I guess it could work the same way as a lightning/ww. WW would be your main source of damage and fire adds a little bit along with a a lot of stunning. I'm just not sure how high the dmg of WoF is? Any feedback would be appreciated.

    20 Venom
    20 WoF
    20 WoI
    20 FB
    1 in all Shadow Disc
    Rest in Claw Block? Or Claw Mastery?

    Equip:
    Chaos / Fury (w/ +WoF base)
    Maras
    MP Enig
    2/20 Helm
    Arach
    Treks
    Magefist
    2x FCR ring
    Torch
    Anni
    Trap / Shadow skillers


    I'm pretty sure its a dumb idea since i've heard bad things about fire traps, but I was just wonderin :laugh:

    It can be done, and it can be very successful. Even low Wake damage is equatible with high LS. Your build has a few problems though:

    The second FCR ring is doing nothing for you. You have the 65 Bp with 20 Gloves + 20 Helm + 20 belt + 10 ring. Build in a Raven, which essentially provides 60 BOable life, 40 BOable Mana, up to 250 AR, CBF and a cold bonus on your attack. This is an indespensable ring.

    Second, you are still a WWsin, don't trade trangs for Magefists, you're Venom will take a HUGE hit, and magefists add a pitiful amount of damage while supplying no other good mods (Trangs cold res is a very nice thing).

    Just rely on stunlock even more.

    For someone new to the assassin class - what would be the advantages of making a hybrid using lightning traps over one using fire traps? Disadvantages? Thanks.

    This list is by no means comprehensive, but:

    Lightning Advantages:

    Longer Range
    Fires Faster after you lay the trap
    More overall damage
    Much more damage against non-stunlocked opponents
    Fires more times, easier to hold a lock with only MB and WW
    Slightly harder to absorb

    Fire Advantages:
    Wider area of effect
    Much better stunning
    Shows desync better
    Less skill points to maximize damage
    More complete stunlocks

    So I should make dual element Trapper/WWSin? I read your guide and you said to put a single point in WoF. I was hoping to try something different though :/
