Hardcore assasin: what kind?

Hey all,

recently I've started playing D2 again after I found them again in some old shoe-box, stacked in the back of the closet :p anyway, I've started playing again after an absence of about 3 to 4 years I guess.

I've been reading a lot about the game to get reaquainted (??) with each class etc, and I've decided to give hardcore a go, since that is about the only thing I haven't done yet when I played this game all those years ago.

Now to my question: what would be a good kind of assassin for a freshmen hardcore player? I've been reading the guides on this forum and so far the Immobilizer is the one that appeals to me the most. Would I be correct in assuming this is a good build for hardcore play or are there other builds you guys would advocate?

Love to hear your thoughts on this one! And it's good to be back playing this game, it rocks! :yes:

Untwinked, go with Trapper. They start off the easiest, deal great damage, and have alot of survivability (warrior, or master; CoS; MB; merc, etc).

Immobilizer (wow, old school :p ) can do well I guess, not certainly not starting off. Like most melee, she'd be gear dependent anyway.

Hmm, trapper ey? Could be fun, never played one of them before, I'll look into it, thanks! :D
