Are you looking for relaxing gameplay style, massive damage output and no danger to your Character? Look no further than this beginner-friendly Lightning Sentry Assassin guide!
The Lightning Sentry / Death Sentry Assassin aka "Trapsin" is THE staple Assassin build. Lay down your Traps from a distance and watch them as they attack your enemies, even when they are off-screen. It doesn't get much easier than that! With 3 damage types in total (Lightning, Fire, Physical) she can handle almost anything.
With the Lightning Damage of Lightning Sentry and the domino effect of Death Sentry's Corpse Explosion the Assassin can plow through massive monster groups in no time. The only thing you need to worry about is killing the first few monsters to set up the domino effect, and Death Sentry deals with the rest.
Her high mobility through Burst of Speed and Teleport make the Trapsin a real joy to play.
