Any Charactor suggestions? Well my Necromancer Bone-Captin is progressing nicely on the softcore ladder here, but I find myself wanting for some melee action. I have been debating on a paladin or a barbarian centering most skills on defensive actions to keep myself alive since I do not have godly gear for either class. The builds I have been thinking about are listed below, give me your opinions on wich would be best, if either, and if they could manage to survive in hell and still kill. Paladin Build - Defender Defience 20 Holy Shield 20 Fire resist 10 - for passive + to max resist Lightning Resist 10 - see fire resist Cold Resist 10 - See fire Resist Smite 20 - No AR issues since it hits automaticly, but were can I find dmg listings for shields. Str - Enough for Gear, perhaps a bit more for dmg Dex - max block vit - everything else Nrg - base Barbarian - Natrual Defense Build Iron Skin - Till deminishing Returns kick in Natural Resist - Enough to keep Hell Resists maxed Concentration - 20 Weapon mastery - 20, Depends on what weapon I find Increase Speed - 10, so I can walk to keep blocking up and move at decent rate BO - 20 War Cry - 10, this is the stunner right Str - Gear Dex - max blocking vit - everything else Nrg - base If you have suggestions on one of these, or thing one would be better for a first time melee charactor with little to no twinkage or have another build I should consider please let me know.
