OK i admit it ive overlooked the Assassin class so far but can't wait to get to grips with this (to me) unknown char type.
Hmmmm..... Ok here goes... Firstly I guess i play waaaaaay to much and can be classed as an extreme baaler - I have 2 chars at 99 and a real high 98 so far this season. One outcome of all this baaling is a naked level 94 Assassin with all skillpoints and attributes free and i want to make this my next minion/baal killer. I play either in a small group or self baal 4 chars at a time and so have found an amazing treasuretrove of items (only time i trade is reluctantly when making runewords) with which to equip her.
As i have the infinity runeword (and a nec with Lower resist) i can overcome pretty much all immunities and was thinking of that maxing the lightning damage would be the way to go.
jrichard's Lightning trapsin guide seems a great place to start but that was aimed at an untwinked Sass and i guess mine is anything but...
As this is pretty much the only real unexplored area of D2 left to me i am hoping the Assassin class will give me a new lease of life with the game and who knows i might even make a team of Assassin baalers if i get hooked!!
Ok heres the thing tho - given all of the above and the need to keep the games as quick as possible which skill do i need to concentrate on? what block rate will i need (if any) to stay pretty immune to baal himself and any other general advice/tactics you think i will need.. Go easy on me tho.. i really know next to nothing about this class. Oh and I find it second nature to control 2 chars at once as long as im not switching skills constantly and yep the char will pretty much be baal exclusive..
