Assassin Diablo 2 Resurrected

The Assassin appeared in Diablo II: Lord of Destruction expansion. She is a member of an order called the Viz-Jaq’taar established to hunt down rogue sorcerers corrupted by demonic magic. Due to the danger of getting corrupted by magic as well, the Assassins learnt to fight using traps and in melee with martial arts.

Therefore the main weapon that Assasins use is the claw, which they dual wield. The Assasin is a master of combos and finishing strikes. You will need to learn how to stack charges to deal more damage. That is why this class is very versatile if you play this type of builds.

The other type of builds is Trap Assassin or Trapsin. This one has become the most powerful and thus popular of all Assassin builds. Similar to the Hydra spell, traps become stationary objects that discharge their spells upon enemies. There are fire and lightning traps, the latter of which is the most potent.
