How does this look for gear...

Ok so my trapsin following jrichards Ls/Fb/Ds excellent build on ladder has aqquired some decent gear.

He uses the following

2X +3 trap claws with 2X +3 shadow claws on switch for fade///SM prebuff.

+3 trap ammy

+3 trap circlet (mabye i will socket)

Smoke armour

Hotspur

Crappy magic belt rings and glove. Obviously these need to go but...


How does the setup look?

Also, how important is it to have a higher Wb than lvl 1? The trapper in pvm is very defensive and with max resists + a lil dr+ all vita +~30% WB i should be fine in later hell? (with shadow and merc tanking)

What cheap gloves///rings///belt would u reccomend? Im almost at max resist in hell for Fr///Lr so mabye get it to max? Fhr? Dr from SOE? Frostburn?

Experienced trappers help plz :/

For the most part the gear you have will definitely keep you alive in hell especially since you have a merc and SM. The only way to really upgrade would be a COH and obviusly some of those ridiculously expensive trap claws. DR is always something nice to have as well. I would like to see your stats and how much HP you have to really recommend you even using DR for pvm.

I would say use SOE for that extra edge in your defenses. You never know when a stray opponent will break off and attack you and since you have resists pretty well covered even slight DR could save your assassins life in those rare cases. 30% WB is also fine since you will more or less be avoiding attacks and having attacks tanked for you 95% of the time. Overall I would say you should be good to go. Frosties would be good if you feel like you are shortchanged on mana.
