Kinda confused with greensteel weapon for my assasin rouge some says radiance 2 is good gives sneak damage but when mob gets blinded it still attacks and high content mobs are immune to fire, friends suggested lit2, some said dust 2 while few suggested earth grab.

i have all the resources to make them till tier 3 but dont wana waste them so what will be the best gs weapon before i get my epic midnight greetings whether radiance, lit 2, dust2, or earth grab inputs please thanks

Oschkosch uses Radiance II main hand, eMG off-hand.

If you're worried about some form of CC, off-hand a Paralyzer. I'd suggest the Elemental Khopesh of Water, since it has both Improved Paralyzing and Freezing Ice.

It would help if we actually knew your Assassin's weapon of choice - after all, I'm recommending a Khopesh, and for all I know he's piercing-specced.

Also... R.O.G.U.E. :)

I use Rad II / Earth II picks on my ranger/rogue.

Makes for some great burst damage on trash.

to clarify tdls point, the class is called rogue. not rouge. rogue is a stealthy bad ass killer. rouge is make up. which would you rather be known as?

Still... Rogue.

That aside, perhaps two of the Tier III Epic Elemental Rapiers of Air (http://ddowiki.com/page/Elemental_Rapier_of_Air), Slotted with Good, would tickle your Fancy. DC 35 Reflex save on every Crit or be Blinded. Not as good as Radiance (since it has a save), but DC 35 Reflex isn't too shabby. Higher to-hit (+6 instead of +5), and the Electric/Sonic damage is more likely to work against the bosses you'll tend to experience at endgame. Note : This is only if you slot both with Good. Too many mobs have simple DR/Good, and the Holy or Good Burst component of a Rad II is powerful in this regard.

If you plan on TRing this character multiple times, I'd still advise at least a Rad II for leveling purposes.

My TR life, I used Rad II and Lit II - depending on the situation, I switched them between main hand and off hand. I found this to be fairly effective. However, now that I'm capped, I literally never use my Lit II anymore - so that's kind of an expensive TR toy.

If I had to make a recommendation that would (likely) be cheaper, I would go with a lower level version of the Elemental Rapier of Air, Specifically:

Level 12 (Tier 3) +4 Enhancement Bonus, Shocking Burst, Screaming, Roaring, Lightning Resistance, Craftable (+3)

Add Holy + Bleed to that Craftable +3, and that is, in my opinion, a pretty good compliment to a Rad II rapier. Rad II in one hand, Rapier of Air in the other...yeah, wouldn't be bad at all. And again, a much cheaper route than Lit II.
