Which of these affects trap damage for assassins?
- spell focus (any idea?)
- energy attribute (any idea? Not sure if the new patch changed things)
- minus res (I believe no)
- spell damage (I believe definitely yes based on my testing)


spell focus no
energy no(strength if you have tinker gambit)
minus res only from curse/debuff and implement V.II
spell dmg yes(read subterfuge for more info)

Thanks! Do buffs affect traps? Guessing no?

Regarding spell focus, I notice vizjuns trap set gives spell focus as a set bonus. Any idea why? Lol.

Trapsin set was reworked only in term of single pieces but full set bonuses are at half garbage. Spell focus and reanimates totally pointless there, stats... well maybe but it's still only few hundreds hp and mana, nothing more.

Ok thanks! Would u recommend a5 Merc as a good compliment to trap sin? I believe they have a debuff that lowers elemental resists?

Nope. Difficulty and drops are fixed in SP - not to be changed.

I had unholy pally + rising dawn few ladders ago. Was very fast farmer and easy to play.
Later saw some guides, all recommending unholy + rising dawn.
Now playing holy + rising dawn, also not so bad.

So:
- superbeast gives ~80%SD late game, tainted blood gives spell focus - on unholy
- incarnation gives ~160%SD late game (guess innate elemental does not work on rising dawn) - holy

More SD, less SF, overall damage similar - why guides keep recommending unholy? It's because solar flare buff?
EDIT: oh, +1 faster frame on cast, but better defence on holy... Hm.

Does innate elemental damage boosts from rainbow stones and skills boost elemental damage on weapons or just the ones with the special elemental text? The TU babr axe for example does tri-elemental damage but doesn't have the XX-XX elemental damage line. Does it work like that or what?

Only the special elemental text one.
