So I'm currently running a full Witchhunter set assassin with twin fang strike, but my mana drains super quickly when I use it... What would be the best way to maintain my mana... I haven't MO'ed/socketed anything yet, and my gloves and boots aren't optimized yet, so I'm open to recommendations. Thanks in advance!

Use Mana on attack orbs on your weapon. Note that you only leech mana that way if you actually hit the enemy with the base hit. So you need lots of dex and AR in order to safely leech mana and never run out of it.

I think with orbs alone you can get 250 mana on attack (500 on crafted weapons)

Thanks Chuck! I was just curious about the set tbh... I happened to find all the parts and the 100% crucify proc looked pretty sweet, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I know that using a shield and some crafts would probably be better, but I'm not really looking to go on long-term with her. But your tip should help with the mana!

Edit: And thanks for the explanation Hecht! :)

i am sorry , i did not mean to sound so harsh (i've been intensive testing assassins in the past 2 weeks and most of them are frustrating ), but the set would have been great if it had a shield instead of one of the claws . the build has issues with that set equipped , so at the moment it is not such a viable option , at least not for farming or doing hard ubers . hopefuly the next patch will fix that .

No worries! I've gotten used to criticism by taking architecture... I AM IMMUNE! Hahaha! But yeah, I find that many sin builds tend to be squishy unless you're constantly killing stuff with laek and leech. The shield would help a lot with the chance to block, especially for that set since I already maxed the item levels with mana orbs. I guess I could try some ber/nih/on crafts in sockets to survive better. But I agree that using other equipment would be the only way to really survive well with TFS.

Hi. What's the difference between weapon damage and weapon physical damage? Like lion stance boost weapon physical damage and bear stance boost weapon damage. Thanks!

I think they're the same thing, but lion stance also adds magic dmg per % str. Might just be a visual text error and its suppsoed to both say physical damage. Unless there's a difference that I don't know about and someone else does, perhaps you might note it in the feedback thread.

Is the sacred unique list in documentation up-to-date?
I have found a sacred Raptor Scythe named Soul Reaver and it's not there :|
