and finally did it. And it performs pretty well for a fun build. The setup is not optimal as always (-:, because i respec from another build. Also i have a quite high lvl and good charms, but still this is pretty cheap SU, and it shows decent result. In offhand better MO is life/mana on attack, because ed/ewd/max dmg/deadly strike/ar doesn't work.

does the orange text from twin terrors only work when holding it in the main hand? Or also on offhand?

It literally says you have to dual wield it.

aren't you dual wielding it, if you have it in one hand and another weapon in the other? You actually need two of them, one in each hand?

dmg slighly weaker than elemental, and also have good aoe clearspeed, because of 2x projectiles. And pure phys has no advantages, doomHong rare stuns changes nothing.

I don't know how Sfp4 can do lab7/8 in phys build, my phys setup struggles even in 6 :D but elemental can clear 6 easily, while 7 is hard, need to fight for live with every pack of mobs. Maybe earthquake is much stronger than noctule?

So my conclusion, if i start a fresh run with claw assasin, i am going to get TwinTerrors and than switch to elemental, when i get runes for weapon and shield.

I haven't played naginata, so it's better to ask Lynderika, because he played both assasins. I have watched nagi skos and lab6 video and i would say nagi is better. The damage is same but nagi has better aoe, though requires to use more skills.


In terms of farming, claw can use spiralDance from

To be fair, earthquake is amazing levels of good.
A bit inferior for static single target, better at everything else... I didn't expect it to be so good, and now I'm having a hard time playing without it.

Yeah, earthquake is good, everywhere except labs from my test(not as good as outside labs). It is a better and lazier AOE skill than all sin's own AOE ones (spells not included). The only thing is u need a relic to be able to play with it in late game.

From my test, these 3 late game clawsin build are good(much better than clawsins which mainly use her own skills):
1. Earthquake clawsin. Good everywhere except labs(same problem like earthquake barb, not good in labs). Noctule for single.

2. Cherubim clawsin. Good everywhere, either phys or ele are playable in late game. Labs doable. 5f speed with melee devotion(even anathema if go ele). Noctule for single.

3. Guard Tower clawsin. Newly reworked oskill in 2.2, really amazing and powerful with fortress together. Going phys is much better than ele in t10. Maybe the best late game clawsin build of all 3, but it needs 2 relics, so it costs the most in 3.
