With cheap gear I tried everything but in the end there are just 2 viable methods. Electrofield or nova bomb.

When you are alone more methods work like claw sin, nagi sin or mkv throw sin but once that game gets more than 3 players electro is superior.
Or of course expensive gear. Then everything works.

That's talking about dcows. I know a guy who got to lvl 121 in the trojan jungle I think this ladder he is the only 121 sin that has not yet killed baal. He also was like the first guy to manage it. In a full game it's great to farm there to get xp and sigs but he told me he just spent waaay too much time there. No one wants to run the same place 150 times.

I meant in general, not just for the assassin, ive never ever played an assassin ever since ive played median, never played a druid either. What i meant was, what is the general method people use to reach 121 quickly?

I'll try to roll a better claw and commit to it, see how it goes.


So I did it over the past few days. Had 2 claws with +25 to nova bomb, the dmg was better than dar al harb and a skeleton, even for bosses (who don't move) it worked better. But the most important aspect about it were the mana cost I never lost a single point of mana while the electrofield sentry often forced me to go slower. And I mo'd both claws with +experience to get to 121 faster.


What is the best method to reach 121?


Nitz's way is better for cowing, electrofield is doable but definitely slower for cows. Electrofield is mainly a small zone of aoe, good for single target and some farming areas. Nova Bomb is less dmg but quicker for large volumes of weak enemies like cows.
