    Hi all! I'm new here and quite a noob at D2. I have a question about my assassin build, hope you help.
    The question is quite common : where do i put unused stat and skill points to? I have 80 unused stat points and 4 skill points at lv62.

    Anyway here she is

    Name : Kira
    Class : Dclaw Assassin
    Level : 62
    Exp : 141045346

    Stat base/gear :
    Str : 90/128
    Dex : 85/99
    Vit : 120/130
    En : 25/35
    Life : 542
    Mana : 143
    Unused stat : 80

    Resist with dual claw (Norm/NM) :
    FR : 75/75
    CR : 75/75
    LR : 75/71
    PR : 75/61
    (On switch with shield i got all 75, for safe running-through)

    Skill :
    CM - 7
    Venom - 20
    SM - 10
    Dclaw - 20
    Fade, BoS, CoS, MB, WB, all preq - 1
    Unused skill points : 4

    Gears :
    Body : smoke cuirass
    Helm : Duskdeep (upgraded to basinet)
    Belt : Bladebuckle (upgraded to war belt)
    Glove : crafted blood heavy bracer
    Boots : Natalya soul
    Amy and rings : rare with +res
    Wep 1 : Strength (Amn+Tir) Wrist spike
    Wep 2 : Rare claw with 2 PSkull
    Switch wep : Hellpluage (upgraded to rune sword)
    Switch shield : ancient's pledge kite shield.

    Merc : Act2 norm def (defiance)
    Body : Treachery templar coat
    Helm : Rare tiara
    Wep : Insight Bec-de-Corbin

    I'm currently in Act5 NM, actually just started, finished first quest. I'm doing ok in NM, kill is a bit slow in Act 5 since they spawn burning dead archer who is immune to my venom so my merc do most the killing. I'm happy with my SM, her traps work ok and her MB is cool.

    So, again, where do i put 80 stat points and 4 skill points? Thanks

    Hmmm 1 day and know one wanna help me?
    Btw I made my way to hell and found it's much harder than NM, a single unique zombie could wipe my merc and me. Oh and i'm 69 now with 115 stat and 11 skill points unused and upgraded my gears abit more. So any advice where to put my points to make hell easier?

    Its weekend, so its not so active here!

    I would have answered, but you seem to have a character that works. So do you really need the help?

    I mean, but Im no expert with assassins, you could use a shadow as dmg dealer. And you should probably max CM if youre using a claw.

    Hello.
    Ty for the advice, i put my points to VIT and increased my chane of survive. I save some points though, just in case i come across a good heavy armor.
    I read some guides here and decided to make C/C assassin as she look cooler :D but maybe i will take 1 lv of Death sentry, corpse explosion seem to be very effective :-?
    And yes, i use CoS everytime, especially when facing ranged mobs.

    YESH! It works wonder :D especially in the tombs in act2 where the undead love to gather at the doors :D
    But still my killing is quite slow against poison immune. Maybe i should farm hell countess for an Ohm to get a Chaos :-/
    Btw, how hard to get a Ber (dying to get a CoH)? I read that the Countess only drop up to Ist (my highest drop til now is Mal)

    Keep reading, you should be fine with an alternative. Ber is quite rare. And some never finds it.



    Peace

    Been ages since I created a claw assi and only browsed through Opening post @ first.

    With reading your last post, I'm not quite convinced your fighting the right way with your C/C assi so may I ask: how do u fight? I don't see u mentioning maxing a charge-up skill.
    Claw/Claw usually hits 3 times with a charge up skill (lets say Tiger Strike) then release the charges with a finishing move (usually Dragon Tail). Tried it a decade ago and u can kill an entire pack with your finishing move (+30k hit)

    try(it's old though):

    Venom is great for a pure kicker build btw (Dragon Talon), less for claw, muuch less.

    edit, and another:

    I use DClaw as my main attack. My pull work as followed : Mind Blast a few to convert some mobs, then CoS, by this time my merc already stand in the middle of the fire, then i jump in and try to pick a few with out Physic or Poison immunity, after killing off few mobs in the crowd i step back and throw in Death Sentry and jump in again, repeat till all drop.
    This is my first char so i'm untwinked and i kill rather slow and have to pot (mostly pot my merc) and town portal alot, also die alot :D but eventually i'm crawling toward the Three. I almost made it to Act3 in Hell and finally got my 'Chaos' Wrist sword (after farming the Countess for countless times). YAY!
    And no, i don't use any charge up skill, no tiger no phoenix. The only skill i pick in the martial art tree is DClaw.
    I know my sin might look suck but she works, slowly, for me atleast :D

    Whatever works for u ofc, can only advise to give it a try. Even 1 point in Tiger strike will enhance your damage a lot.
    btw: Dragon flight is also almost mandatory (teleports u + merc + your shadow to that spot)

    After some time playing with Tiger strike i found out that it doesn't fit my sin. Reason : my physical damage is low. I got tiger strike to lv4 with +skills and with a full charge up i couldn't 1-hit most mob in act 5 hell. Most of my damage comes from venom, magic(chaos claw) and corpse explosion (death sentry) along with my merc who now wield an 'obedience' grim scythe, so my physical atk give small effect here.
    Anyway, i got to the ancients in Hell and having hard time with them. Leveled myself to 83 now (mostly by running the countess again and again). Oh, and one thing i want to confirm, the bug with CoS when fighting Ancients haven't been fixed yet (v1.13), i crashed my game for like 5 times using it.

    I'm playing 1.13, i think i got the latest patch, downloaded from arreat summit itself.
    At first i thought my game crashed because of ATMA and rune words mode, but later i google and found it was a famous bug lol.
    Btw, WOOT i'm done with the Ancients :D after few reroll and with an inventory full of potions :D

    Something I discovered far, far too late, and you may have already discovered in which case forget what I said, it's just me being pathetic:
    don't bother with keys. Assassins can open locked chests/vases/goo piles without keys.
