Martial Arts Elemental Assassin dominates in ladder Season 3 with new runeword Mosaic as Blizzard buffs Assassin traps having a Diablo 2 Resurrected update.
It’s all choose Assassins as Diablo 2 Resurrected season 3 begins, with Martial Arts Elemental Assassin proving to become one of the strongest builds within the classic RPG game because of the new Mosaic runeword. Meanwhile, a Diablo 2 Resurrected update has fixed a bug affecting Trap Assassins, with Blizzard updating its recent patch notes to reflect a hotfix for online play that'll be applied to offline players later on.

The arrival of recent Diablo 2 Resurrected runewords in patch 2.6 was always prone to cause some meta shakeups, also it seems to date like Martial Arts Assassins are simply as exciting as initially expected. The Mosaic runeword got a buff following PTR testing, and therefore each one now applies a 50% opportunity to not consume charges on finishing moves.
You can therefore run only one to get that bonus, or dual wield for any 100% guaranteed opportunity to not make use of your charges. In addition to this, Blizzard designed a change to ensure that when finishers are executed in this manner, it now refreshes the expiration timer around the stack. That combines right into a huge buff for that class, letting them spam finishing moves non-stop for huge bursts of harm.
If you'd rather play a Trap Diablo 2 Resurrected Assassin build instead, you’ll be very happy to hear that Blizzard has deployed a hotfix resolving an unintended nerf. Trap skills were designed to benefit from gear that applied negative enemy resistance, however, it wasn’t working correctly. Blizzard says “the bug fix went accept patch 2.6 but encountered a surprise issue,” but a hotfix has now amended it for online play. A fix is originating for offline play “later on.”
If you’re yet to jump in, a Blizzard sale happens to be offering the opportunity to get into Diablo at a huge discount. If you need it, you will get d2 resurrected items at a cheap price at MMOWTS with constant delivery along with a safe deal!
