Martial Arts — (0)

Shadow Disciplines — (5)
〈 1 〉➨ Burst of Speed
〈 1 〉➨ Cloak of Shadow
〈 1 〉➨ Mind Blast



Traps — (85)
〈 18+ 〉➨ Fire Blast
〈 7+ 〉➨ Shock Web
〈 20 〉➨ Charged Bolt Sentry
〈 20 〉➨ Lightning Sentry
〈 20 〉➨ Death Sentry

Total: 90



So, this is quite basic trap assassin build. It's basically like hybrid of sorc and necro. Lightning sentry will drop first corpse and then death sentry is doing the rest of job. Maxed death sentry has quite large radius damage from corpse explosion so it should go smoothly. Remember, though fire blast is synergy for death sentry it only adds 1 corpse explosion every 3 levels, so it's not worth to max it unless You have +skills.
You can add some points into dragon flight or shadow master though I feel like it's better used for death sentry.

Martial Arts — (43)
〈 20 〉➨ Tiger Strike
〈 20 〉➨ Dragon Tail
〈 1 〉➨ Cobra Strike

Shadow Disciplines — (5)
〈 1 〉➨ Cloak of Shadow
〈 20 〉➨ Fade

Traps — (24)

Total: 91

So, I changed here burst of speed for fade. The thing is that kick assassin fight close ranged and dragon tail is not fast kick anyway. If it was dragon talon build then You might prefer burst of speed over fade, but it's heavily dependent of equipement. Dragon tail is less equipment dependent, because it's main damage comes from tiger strike boost and also it has splash area damage which is more suitable for PvM.
The strategy is basically to produce some corpse and let death sentry do its job again.
You can go for burst of speed instead of fade and use these points for shadow master or weapon block and even point for dragon flight if You feel like it though cloak of shadow usually will do the job. Some might prefer to add only 1 point into death sentry, but again, large area corpse exploasion is priceless.
If You want close this build within 90 points then You might drop cobra strike though its very useful life/mana steal skill.

Kick assassin is more fun & risky build, especially for hardcore. Trap is safe option. If You find some item with crushing blow then kick assassin might be very efficient against bosses. Basically, use dragon talon for fast life ravage and then finish with tiger strike. Trap build is not particularly effective against bosses as its main strength is corpse explosion to cause chain reaction and fast clear regular areas.
Against immunes Your main weapon is corpse explosion (again). Trap assassin has edge here as it uses 3 sources of damage: lightning, fire and physical. Kick assassin uses only 2 sources: fire and physical. Moreover, dragon tail is useless against physical immunes because of its mechanics. So, if You encounter physical & fire immunes You can't do anything. Some people use venom as 3rd source of damage but it's rather weak skill without additional buff. I don't see a reason to waste skill points in this skill.
Most of the times, playing assassin in PvM is smooth experience even without dedicated equipment.
