will build a trap, but has not done one in the hu. so I have some questions ...
1: should i max fire or lightning? do not know what will be most advantageous
2: what gear should I have when I come to nightmare so I can handle myself fairly, and which shall be used as final gear in hell??


p.s.sorry for my bad English!!!!

As a warning, either way trappers kinda suck. You can do lightning or fire. Fire is more useful against bosses, though. +% and -% to enemy ele res doesn't affect traps, making you do very poor damage later (As far as I know).

Gear is...well...since you can't get +/-% res, just stack up on life and junk I suppose. You're gonna suck, though.

I think +% works but -% doesn't, so you're missing out on a lot of damage. Ele builds are already pretty heavily disadvantaged in this mod and trappers are just...eh. A hybrid, maybe, but a plain trapper, not so much.

+% dmg works and -% res works on some traps (wake of fire, fire bomb, shock web, light sentry).

Trappers are quite good, I've had a light one to guardian status who did great and a fire one that got to a5 nm or something similar. She did great all the way and did actually solo normal baal with bo and oak.

Gearwise, +skills, +traps and +life. Not exactly rocket science. Skullders is great for the oskill attract and terror.

wake of inferno wont get any benefits from -res% the other traps get your -res at the time of casting cloned onto them so it can take effect.

I've played with a couple on hc this season and they were completely destroying trash and making a decent impact on bosses (dont use chaarged bolt sentry on bosses unless everyone in then group says you should due to the major counters

is this still the case? and if so do they not receive the +dmg% either ? and could anyone link trapsin threads? i have searched for trapsin and assasin trap and come up with very little.
