Hi guys, I made my first Puppet Master YouTube Guide and would love to get some constructive criticism. If you could please post the comments at the youtube channel as opposed to this thread that'd be great. Let me re-iterate: CONSTRUCTIVE COMMENTS such as what I could do better in terms of video production or what you would like to see me do instead.
Shroud is (in my opinion) completely unnecessary on puppet. You have 2 pseudo disables which stop blinkers. You don't need another escape mechanism. And your whiplash hits hard enough, you don't need the bonus red damage from stealth. All it all it's a great way to waste gold. Puppet is all about attack speed. The faster you attack, the more whiplash crits you get per fight.
Anywho, as for skills, the build never really changes. Start off with a level of whiplash, then get one and only one level of strings. Then alternate between whiplash and puppet show keeping whiplash as the priority. Once you max whiplash you can start putting points into strings, but you definitely want to max puppet show first.
