Description

Hi!

So FC does not work for a trap assassin, it is the trap laying speed: the attack speed, ok.
But does that mean, that the trap is totally indipendant of the assassin?

So the question is:
does -lightning resis% work for a trap assassin?

If it works, i am thinking about a Crescent Moon instead of a ghost sword.
Would you agree on that?

I only have cheap gear:
OrtSol helmet (Lore)
Viper magi or Treachery is planned
Sigons gloves +
Boots

Immortal King
Belt
is planned
ghost shield is planned
and currently i use ghost sword, or maybe later crescend.

Yes, -% to Enemy Resistance DOES work for Assassin traps now.

In the past, traps were considered pets and therefore -% to Enemy Resistance did not affect them, but that was changed as of patch 2.6.

Also, Crescent Moon is best on a
Phase Blade
, as trap laying speed is dependant on weapon speed, and Phase Blades are the fastest weapons around.

oh, so that is Brand new!

Hm... i didnt thought the assassin traps needed a buff.

Great, then i think i will try a crescend.

Thx for the info!

Oops, I got ninja'd. :P

In case you missed it, I added an edit about Phase Blades.

OP
oh, i was not aware of that! I knew attack speed has an influence, but i did not thought about weapon base speed. I thought i could choose any weapon. So will be
Phase Blade
or
Crystal Sword
. Thank you :)

Not
Crystal Sword
... it has a base speed 0 whereas the
Phase Blade
has a base speed of -30 (much faster).

To look up base items use the
Arreat Summit
. It has the most complete collection of skills and base item stats despite being a 20-year-old website! (It's missing all the stuff that came out since D2R launched though).

Also, to calculate your trap laying speed, use this calculator - plug in Assassin, Laying Traps for the skill and your weapon of choice. :)

Got to love
Arreat Summit
. May I also humbly suggest the bases database category here - it has more data fields like treasure class, max sockets by iLvl, mapping to runeword bases, ethereal values etc. and is up-to-date :D

OP
Hey Lanceor,

you saved me again,
this time from loosing 30 base speed, thx!
Crystal Sword
and
Phase Blade
so different... never noticed that!

OP
Hey Teebling,

the data base with the insta pop-up by just hovering over the name of the item is really great!
I enjoy your website.

With a whopping 136 Dex requirement, i would not choose phaseblade.

A longsword (or
Military Pick
...) would be 1 frame slower ... (probably 0 with
Burst of Speed
)
Since you should not continuously lay traps ... it does not worth the extra Dex points ^^
7
Probably not worth on its own, but when you invest into dex for max block, you'll meet PB reqs "for free".

As an assassin you'd benefit a lot more from a
Greater Talons
or a
Runic Talons
as they also have -30 base speed along with
Phase Blade
and can also come with +skills, I guess you just won't be able to make Crescent Moon with them, which is unfortunate.

For a budget build I use:
Crescent Moon
Phase Blade
(-35 res)
15% light dmg
Ormus
Robe with 5/3 facet (+20% light dmg and add -3 light res total).
+ 2 skills / 30 FRW
Circlet
with another 5/3 facet or
Shako
for MF.
With skillers it gives 11k light damage and about ~40% light res.
Can put traps under
Fade
with 10 FPA or BOS with 9 FPA.

Offline players even had to wait until 2.7. They kinda messed it up in 2.6 and patched it on server side only. So yeah, brand new.

Would be nice an armor with 4 facet 5/5, isnt it?? (+20 light damage -20 light resis)
