The Lightning Trapper build belongs to the “Trapsin” category of Assassin builds (builds that focus on the ‘Traps’ skill tree). She utilizes lightning traps to deal damage to her enemies, resulting in a powerful crowd killer.
The Lightning Trapsin or Shockbringer players spend the majority of their points in Traps. Also, they invest a few points in the ‘Shadow Disciplines” tree in order to acquire skills such as Mind Blast, Burst of Speed, Fade and Shadow Warrior/Master.
The main skills of the build you have to max out are:
Some other skills you need to spend some points:
Other skills you should consider:
Place the rest of the skill-points to Charged Bolt Sentry and Shock Web that synergies with Lightning Sentry or to Shadow Master.
Strength: Invest points until you are able to equip your strongest weapon and armor.
Dexterity: The lightning trapper Assassin doesn’t rely on attack speed for dealing damage. Place as many points as your proper equipment requires.
Vitality: Invest the rest of your points here.
Energy: If you have mana issues, try to find items that boost your mana pool and utilize mana potions.
The ideal companion for you and your Shadow Master is a Desert Mercenary (Act 2). Its Holy Freeze Aura will slow down your enemies. Further, if it’s equipped properly it acts as an additional tank, assisting your summon. You can consider an offensive hireling too with Might Aura, but you shouldn’t have problems dealing high amounts of damage.
