D2R 2.7 & Season 4 Changes to Assassin

Each Assassin Martial Arts charge-up skill trigger is treated as a different cast of skills for Next Hit Delay purposes. The change to the Next Hit Delay mechanic allows players to use different skills that won't interact negatively with each other, which brings increased damage output. This is going to improve the multiplayer gameplay and clear speed efficiency because you no longer are going to have skills that are overriding one another and ultimately missing those monsters upon being hit, this is also likely going to translate to some marginal buffs to characters like the Fire Assassin.

In addition, the Assassin’s trap skills now benefit from -% to enemy resistance and +% to elemental skill damage modifiers. And the issue where the traps were not benefiting from resistance reduction in Offline play has been fixed. Trapsins are continuing to thrive onward and upward in Diablo 2 Ladder Season 4 and Patch 2.7.

Assassins got buffed in Patch 2.7 and Trapsins are even better because the Fire Trap Assassin who wakes a fire could have a Next Hit Delay stack across all of its things, every single one of those Traps has its own Next Hit Delay, and the damage is magnified. Below is the MrLlamaSC’s setup for D2R 2.7 Season 4 Fire Trapsin build, this Fire Trap Assassin build can clear Players 8 at a decent speed and is going to be one of the best Cows clearing options.

For the stats, you’ll need enough strength and dexterity to use a Phase Blade and a Monarch shield. 

- Strength 158

- Dexterity 156

- Vitality 513

- Energy 70

2. Skills

This build doesn't really take a lot of skills, you just need to max out the Wake of Fire, Fire Blast, and Wake of Inferno. You can put points into Shadow Warrior, a point into Mind Blast, and nothing in the Martial Arts tree.

The weapon to go for this 2.7 Assassin build is Superior Phase Blade, you can get -30% to enemy fire resistance and +30% to fire skill damage, both are going to benefit this character, which makes it a solid starting weapon. Flickering Flame is nice and easy to get, it gives you plus three to fire skills, -15% to enemy fire resistance, and also level 5 resist fire aura, which is really helpful as you are going to be running a fire Sunder charm.
