Just as an FYI, implement only helps with bosses, since pierce cap for normal mobs is 135 which you already get from maxing traps, dual sagittarius yields bigger dmg and life. As for helm and body armor you are probably better off with

As far as I know, life/mana after kill doesn't work on traps. Correct me if I'm wrong.

IMO

is overrated. Any day I would pick a lotteried
Ring of Regha
Ring of Regha
Ring

Item Level: 1
Adds 3-5 damage
+5% to Spell Damage
+(5 to 15) to Strength
+(5 to 15) to Dexterity
Elemental Resists +10%
with fire/cold/light/physical and magical orbs in it. End result is a ring with +1 skills, 15% to all relevant spell damage and resistances. On the other hand, on Witchcraft, other than +2 skills, stats are useless. FCR is easily obtainable from other sources, mana may roll negative, pierce is useless and so is defense. Might be worth it if you can get it luckied/lotteried, but since it is a rare drop it will be a pain.

Indeed, it does not seem to work.

What about

I went lazy and mixed life/mana and vitality related on mine. If you get super lucky, you can put 1 assassin skills on it, but that never dropped for me.

If you can't get more damage, get more life.

I'd say for life/Mana cycles, they are only worth it if you get your hands on grand cycles. Small and medium can roll 0% which makes them borderline useless. I'd go with vit cycles until you can find several grand life/Mana cycles, since flat vit is still useful due to the large +% to vit from artifice mastery.

I wholeheartedly approve of this. Very good explanation. Again this is all about having time to grind cycles/buying them.

I know little about assasins, I play HC. I was looking for something different to try. I read the original guide but then all the conflicting posts coming after it My head is spinning. Is it worth trying on HC or is it doomed from the start.

In terms of survivability, this sin build is imo the best. Items to get decent are rather cheap. Knowing what I am doing, I died like twice from start to 120. Both deaths were me getting greedy.
