Build nicknames

Archived from groups: alt.games.diablo (More info?)

Its probably been done before, but in an effort to ward off the dog-day
ennui (or the winter blahs in the case of misfit) I would like to
catalogue the various nicknames of the builds, both serious and
Jabber-esque. ; )

We are all familiar with various ___-adins and ___azons, but it would
be nice to hear of your variations on the Diablo build theme, complete
with descriptions of their purposes, attribute, skills, equipment, etc.

Feel free to be whimsical. Viablilty is not important.

Here's my first submissions:

Banker: Any char that is built to generate gold for gambling--Crown of
Thieves, Goldwrap, etc. plus all those rings and charms that are
generate more % gold dropped. (someone tell me if that maxes out at
some point)

Babysitter: Summoning necro with maxed revive that specializes in
reanimating carvers, fallen and dolls. Kinda cute to look at.

Others?

    Well, if ever a thread was tailored for me to pwn...

    Firing Squad necro: max Mages, revives only projectile-based monsters
    Spongebarb: the unkillable barb, with max Conc, Shout/Iron Skin, %dr, MDR,
    DR, and so on
    Zeusazon: Full-on synergised lightning zon, ignoring most passives.
    Invulnasorc: Only for the rich, uses uber gear to reach level 40+ ES, maxes
    Warmth and Enchant, and basically lets stuff hit her while the merc kills.
    Possibly the best build for a Harmony.
    Iggy CorpsePop: Maxes IG, FG, GM and CE, uses Attract and Confuse to get the
    corpses. Sloooooooooooooooooow.

    There are more I made, but they slipped my mind

    Ah, Information. A property, too valuable these days, to give it away,
    just so, at no cost.

    Someone remember my firestrafer? A rather conventional strafezone,
    except for her Blood Raven's Charge, synergized with lvl 28 Fire Arrow
    (+2 bow skills from Charge, +2 bow skills crafted gloves, +2 Zonskills
    Ammy, +2 skills Tiara). Her footwear is gorefoot.

    She isn't really strong, though. Her might merc would die way too
    often, no matter what he wears (SP, and without the aurafix, another
    one is little helpful). Maybe I should take away this upped Hone Sundan
    and give him a conventional one, which I found two days ago.

    starwars universe invading bnet if I don't get distracted with trying to lvl

    BB was big into these sorts of builds, too! I'm not sure if he ever gave
    them nicknames though.

    >Spongebarb: the unkillable barb, with max Conc, Shout/Iron Skin, %dr, MDR,
    >DR, and so on

    aka standard concentrate barbarian. Cute name though. Kind of like Spongebob
    Squarepants.

    >Zeusazon: Full-on synergised lightning zon, ignoring most passives.

    aka standard cookie cutter lightning javazon.

    >Invulnasorc: Only for the rich, uses uber gear to reach level 40+ ES, maxes
    >Warmth and Enchant, and basically lets stuff hit her while the merc kills.
    >Possibly the best build for a Harmony.

    Hell, a no twink player could get a level 30+ ES with some shopping/rune
    hunting etc, so I wouldn't call this a "only for the rich" build.

    >Iggy CorpsePop: Maxes IG, FG, GM and CE, uses Attract and Confuse to get the
    >corpses. Sloooooooooooooooooow.

    And still only level 27. You're worse than short.

    I pondered this a while, but my answer would be that I don't really GIVE my
    builds silly nicknames. I call them things like "conviction zealot" or "gold
    finding singer" or "tankazon" or "whirlwind barbarian". Very dull, I know.
