I only have one character so far this season and I think its about time I
start something else. At least until "Hammy's Angels" gets started I need
something to occupy my time when I get tired of mfing.

The problem, I have no idea what to build, so I'm letting everyone else
choose. Come on, give me some ideas, no cookie cutters.

Actually they're lots of fun, I had one last season, although I used fire
golem.

How about a melee sorc? Max Enchant, Warmth, Fire Mastery, Lightning
Mastery and Cold Mastery. 1 Point in Static Field.

Primary weapon tabs contains a nice combination of elemental damage melee
weaponry. Secondary slot a ranged variant (perhaps Kuko there, or
Hellrack, or something similar). Inventory is filled with as much
elemental damage charms you can pack/get.

I'm curious how a build like this would do in Hell...

Regards,

Patrick.

Just some ideas:

Cleric (Paladin with Holy Bolt, Prayer, etc)
Plaguewolf (Druid with max Rabies + synergie)
FurySin (Assassin using Blade Fury + CB)
CommandoMancer (Melee Necromancer with lots of curses)
CryBarb (Barbarian with War Cry + Synergies + mad equipment)
NovaSorc (Sorceres with Nova + some backup skill)

I'm making a Cleric myself, tho I'm putting it aside for now. I've also
made a FurySin and CryBarb during 1.10 and both where rather enjoyable.

Well, a Singer with a single point in Zerk could do it (Phys immunes).
Zerk is synergised by Howl. Stun with Warcry and then Zerk a few times
(with a Ribcracker). Repeat. (Actually, a battlecry or two is also
handy).

High HP monsters: Same technique but you can use Conc if you like
instead.

And killing monsters in Hell isn't too bad if you can get them crowding
aruond you (Taunt). Let's say 700 damage per cry (2 syns maxed, +6
skills). And that's with the whole crowd stunned for safety.

Does this build need to be able to solo Hell?

Warcry is physical damage, and not particularly high physical damage as
well(and that's with the godliest gear, without that you'll be doing much
less damage). That means it's useless against Physical Immunes, and it will
take a fair amount of time to kill enemies even in 1 player hell games. NOT
a build I would want to solo hell with(and even then you'd have to avoid
physical immunes.

Of course, to do that he needs a high damage weapon. And a singer is
essentially a caster, he needs +skills and FCR on his gear, not high damage.

But a Ribcracker is a melee weapon, an ill-suited weapon for a singer. I
suppose you can carry it on switch if you don't want 2 Echoing weapons to
boost BO/BC/Shout though. Of course, you'll still be severly lacking in AR
though...

I tested in single player with around 1800 damage per cry and IT was still
somewhat slow going, and still was utterly worthless against PIs.

Yeah, I'm starting to get a jonesing to do some more questies, too. I have a
little amazon in act 4 normal in SC, so perhaps once you pick a new character,
maybe we could hook up in agd/agd for some newbie monster bashing.

Well, there aren't too many high level barbs on the USWest AGD ladder scene
yet, that I've seen, and there's always a demand for strong BO (hehe, now
where else would I be able to say that?) So... maybe you could make a
Booyaaka (I hope I spelt that right).

I've been working outside gardening and between my garden shoes (five
year old Nike tennis shoes with plenty of water + mud exposure) and
the shirt which I also wore yesterday, I am guessing I am giving the
party of cats following me around about a level 50 BO. Being cats, I
think they might actually appreciate it.

A Flying Booyaka:

I had thought of doing a Booyaka/Thrower combo, which I thought would be
interesting, but I always seem to get bored with barbs so that never got
far...

I didn't solo all of hell with mine last season, since he was more fun to play
in a party, anyway. However, I DID solo the chaos sanctuary and diablo, and
the ancients, in hell (I don't think he ever did baal for the quest
specifically, as his main roles were gold finding and support play in a party)

I found I had to switch the mercenary to a crushing blow stick (he used
insight the rest of the time) for the ancients, whereas diablo I took out
simply with spammed war cry.

Well, Ribcracker has pretty low stat requirements though, and with maxed
Battle Cry to reduce monster defense...

Definitely. My one from last season, which I gear as much for gold find as I
did for skills, was doing quite a bit less than that. It's certainly a
variant or support build, and needs some patience to play solo.
