Exanos Posted November 23, 2018 Share Posted November 23, 2018 Hi! After a bunch of reading and some testing ( i have a heavy "restart" affliction...) i'm looking for some advices on an assassin build. I don't care too much about "Most OP" build, just looking for viable (difficulty : POE all upscalled) and RP one's . 1) Build concept : Heavy hitter comming from stealh/invis to delete foe in seconds while they are looking elsewhere (party build, no solo). Maximizing backstab. 2) Class i see fitting : option 1 : Assassin/bleakwalker option 2 : Assassin/soulblade option 3 : Assassin/Fighter or Assassin/Monk option 4 : Assassin/Priest of skaen Options 1 - 3 are good but i fear quite boring after sometimes. So i'm turning to option 4 cause : -> Fit the RP of an assassin. -> You can buff yourself while in stealth mode (letting your tanks aggro and your crowd controller starting afflicting key target) -> Skaen give you acces to : - Good buffs; - Guile free rogue's spells (invisibility is costly...) allowing you to surf across the battlefield with lot of backstab; - some survivability in "oh****" moment (Barring Death Door...) ; - throwing spell as backup when melee is dangerous; - good backup weapon (priest summoned one) when no more backstab possibility (2h->dualwield with a "free" weapon slot); Wael could be an option for more survivability but it may be more usefull on other rogue class. This one shouldn't be targetted that much. 3) Questions / advices needed : a - Weapon choice : For backstab, 2h seem the best choice (only main hand trigger backstab). I'm considering engaging with Dragon's Dowry for double tap (75% speed reload when quitting stealth) or a 2h melee -> which one ? Is Greatsword Wotep a good choice? it has low base damage but aoe (not sure if bacstab proc in aoe). After all backstabs are done, i fall back to priest summoned weapon. b - Viability / fun factor in mid-late game in POE upscalled Your though on it ? :D thanks!
