Best PoE Assassin builds for path 2.6

The Assassin is a offense-oriented class centered around critical strikes. The class offers enhanced crits on full or low life enemies and enhancing their power charges. His tree also has options for damage over time with bleeding and poison with added synergy with critical strikes.

Build mechanic introduction:
PoE Assassin builds Defences:
- The final build has about 350% increased maximum energy shield and 15% "more" energy shield from the skill-tree.
- Huge energy shield pool will prevent one-shots.
- Immune to chaos damage.
- Instant life leech, meaning you are typically able to out-leech incoming damage, even from most bosses.
- 5 utility flasks all granting anything from curse, freeze, and stun immunity, while also allowing you to blind nearby enemies and greatly reduce incoming physical damage.

PoE Assassin builds Reflect Damage
Single reflect mobs and elemental reflect maps are safe. I'd advice to stay away from physical reflect maps. It can be done, but it is sketchy.

Why the Assassin?
- Access to all the basic skill-gems required, making the leveling experience much smoother.
- Free power charge generation via Unstable Infusion.
- Deadly Infusion grants tons of crit chance and multiplier, making it much cheaper and easier to gear compared to other ascendancy classes.
- Free culling strike on crits!

New one of a kind poe Items in Path of exile Update 3.0.2 Patch
Within the wake of Path of Exile's launch in China and to help celebrate China's national week, Poe wanted to style some lore-heavy uniques that were connected with memorable characters. Malachai and Dialla were heavily applied to promote Path of Exile inside the leadup for the Chinese launch, so Path of exile decided to make two items: a single themed around Malachai, and one particular themed about Dialla.
Considering that these characters have already been central to Path of Exile's lore for so long, Path of exile also wanted to be sure these items did effective and intriguing items.

POE 3.0 Ranger Build Fire & Ice - Katana Frost Blades + Molten Strike! High clear speed + single target.

Fire & Ice by Hotslice

In 3.0 I am playing life-based Scion(Ascendant) Assassin/Raider for the charge generation, bonus crit, and 5(!) free passive points. Also gives easy access to Scion Life Loaf and a bunch of free resistances to make gearing easy. I championed Alira to help with mana and get a bunch more free resist. So my gear really doesn't need much resist at all and I can focus on just getting HP + damage. Great for beta and great for early league budget!

To start I pathed down from Scion into the left side of Duelist, then through to the rest of the passive tree. I took Assassin in Cruel lab, Raider in Merciless lab, and Path of the Ranger in Uber lab.

Leveling weapons were Wideswing -> Geofri's Baptism -> Rigwald's Charge -> Terminus Est.

Here's my current passive tree:
The build feels great. Clear speed is …
