Dual Element Trapsin

When I think of an assassin, I think of a character that sneaks up on enemies and instantly kills them without a sound. Most players ended up putting points in the Martial Arts and Shadow Disciplines trees. However, the Traps tree can be a lot of fun. My first build I went all Lightning traps. While very damaging, Diablo 2 had annoying monsters with Lightning immunities. I found this build that uses both Fire and Lightning traps to avoid the immunities problem.
