i've been playin my ww/trap on east ladder for about 6mo (shadysadist). I rarrrely see another one, although I love duelin hybrids when I do. I'm thinking that people shy away from 'em because it's not a build you just go out and start owning with godly gear...takes a some time to get the hang of it. Plus, like Order said, you can't just go out and buy a bunch of uniques for the build. You pretty much have to search out gear for a while.

Very true, a lot of people who probably never heard of the build could be throwing away nice +3LS GT's with Venom, MB or DF.
I play on USWSCL, I'm friends with other good WW/Trappers (probably the top ones on the realm)... Theres Aerial, BuneIV, Sfifteen, Smithenatroll and me, zZz_yAwN.

Well then, now that I heard how rare they are.. HOW are they mainstream and or cookiecutter?

Though I'm new to the pvp world I fail to see how this build can be called mainstream if there aren't that many around. Hammers, smiters and so on they are mainstream in my world anyways.

I'd guess they are called main stream because the build is pretty much figured out, the gear is around and their strengths and weaknesses are well known. I can't tell you how many people I've beaten who have s/e'd and come back with a BvC (I think it took a while for peeps to figure out that hammerdins are not a good solution). They aren't cookie cutter in the way that some clans are (windy, bvc, hammerdin, bowa, trapper, necro and thats it) but they are mainstream.

It's interesting that you don't see many trapper/ww'ers. I've seen 1 of these guys in the last month (which I'm tempted to experiment w/). With the right dr/res these guys can be evil. I dueled a guy the other day that claimed 2k ww/claw and 11k traps...ouch. After a couple rounds, the biggest thing I noticed, other than his traps tearing me up, was his claw block sucked. I usually am all over my opponents, but I learned real quick with her that I couldn't go toe to toe with traps on the ground. My whirls ate him up, but his traps gave him an advantage in an offensive/offensive situation...one extended ww and my life was poop.

Basically the only difference in ww/trap and trap/ww is what skillers player uses.

Although, that's not to say that you couldn't make a couple gear adjustments to a ww/trap including the shadow for trap gc switchout and still have a fairly solid pvp char.
