this was a very fun character to play and since she's a not often played class/build, i thought she deserved a thread
the LCS is misleading as it doesnt include venom, which adds quite a bit of damage.
not sure where i want the extra stat points. at one point i was debating using steelrends, but now im not sure.

her main attack was DC, no chargeups were used. with lvl 15 BoS it takes 105 ias to reach the last breakpoint according to a guide on the assassin forums. she had 115. this build actually works great, although its not high damaging. she had very few problems. mind blast is just an awesome crowd control skill and she attacks so quickly with 39% leech that she's very durable. IM was a rare problem because mind blast was so effective against OKs. ancients were no trouble at all, didnt even have to reroll. lister was annoying. i would get a minion down to 25% life but then i was knocked back and a new one would take his place. they couldn't kill me either though so the battle ended up being long and frustrating. did i mention he was stoneskin? baal killed my merc in one hit :shocked: but, as usual, wasnt difficult.
NM hellforge was crap
hell dropped a lem
her only notable drop was another 8/15 string of ears...my 3rd
one final thought: MA assassins are waay underrated. my zealot has a harder time in WSK than this char..
