General

Overview
Basically all popular Assassin builds in LoD also work fine in ES. Claw Mastery is changed to Melee Mastery, and some skills like Tiger Strike and Phoenix Strike work with any weapons. So you may like to try a weapon other than Claws.
The new Assassin weapon Katana has a limited use because of being a 2H sword, but looks cool and the damage is awesome. Iaigiri (a Concentrate like skill) is very defensive and popular among Katana sins. Oskill Whirlwind and oskill Zeal are also recommended for most weapons including Katana and Claws. Shuriken is a ranged skill that shoots throwing knives like Strafe, which is also good as a subskill for MA/Trap builds to activate a CtC curse.
Trapper is one of the best builds for beginners, because it benefits from Skill Tab Reroll and Skill Tab Forging a lot. Weaker fire traps are improved or replaced with a magic damage trap. Death Sentry is *nerfed*, but it doesn't matter after all because abundant curse/aura items and Conviction mercenary greatly increase the total trap damage.
