    I have not played any of these classes. I tried to dabble with the assassin but I wasn't quite fond of it or had no idea what I was doing. Im on the newest version 1.14d Im kinda leaning towards Assassin or Amazon they seem a bit different from the core classes.

    My question is I suppose what would I have the most fun with?

    any tips or tricks or suggestions would be appreciated!

    What you prefer?

    Melee/ranged , "strong"/"weak" (can't just jump into the fight) , simple/complicated ?

    I have to agree with CDM, a fishyzon is a good choice. Any purely physical skill (WW, strafe/multishot, fury, etc.) will be difficult to find weapons that deal enough damage to your liking, i.e. not getting stuck in late Nightmare or Act 1 Hell. Fishyzons are strong, and in my opinion, really fun to use. Plus, their gear easily available.

    It's too bad you're not a fan of the assassin, I find Phoenix Strike 'sins to be a lot of fun. They are a bit more complicated than other builds I suppose. Here's a guide, but be warned that it's quite long. If you go with a Pstrike sin, I recommend going dual claws, rather than claw+shield. Here's a loose guide for skill points:

    20 Fists of Fire (FoF)
    20 Claws of Thunder (CoT)
    20 Phoenix Strike (PS)
    5 Weapon Block
    1 Cloak of Shadows
    1+ Shadow Master (more points=more life for your summon)
    5+ Burst of Speed or Fade, depending if you want attack speed or resists. Resists will be very much needed in Hell.
    1+ Death Sentry
    1 Claw Mastery
    5+ Dragon Claw (if you need more attack rating put more points here)

    The way it goes it you use your charge-up skill FoF/CoT/PS, and then use a finishing move (normal attack, Dragon claw, etc.) to release those charges. But everything I'm saying is in that guide. It's also a strong build, but since it's melee you'll find that it's more dangerous. I also think it's harder to do as much damage as a Fishyzon, you're much more reliant on gear.

    I understand that a Holy Freeze Zeal Pally is doable without epic gear.

    How many resources do you have, like high runes or uniques?

    If it's not that much, I would make a javelin amazon. From your list, she probably needs the fewest resources to be successful.

    Oh jeesh thanks a ton guys well I was kinda thinking something along the lines of that could clear my first run some what quick since im not sure how time I will have.

    Well to be honest if I was to go solo I wouldnt really be able to trade so it would all be self found I would have get lucky on items and such. Version is the newest. 1.14d.

    Im open for anything that can get through to the end game I played a ton of the barbarian. So as of late I be leaning towards the amazon with Jav and electricity. even if its a bit of a struggle it would be fun. As for Assassin I don't mind re trying that out either. The summons for both are rather cool looking!

    Another tip: don't ask for anything not listed, because it won't be a forum-accepted mod.

    It's a completely separate program that manipulates d2 files. I didn't make it, I dunno how it does it, but it works.

    To be honest I can't exactly remember what I did to get it working on my computer, that was almost 7 years ago now. If you post in that stickied thread where you grabbed the download link about getting some help, someone both nice and knowledgeable like @maxicek might be able to help you.

    1.14 changed a few things with the save paths of the files. I went on YouTube and found some videos of how to get GoMule going.

    Make a char named "abcdef" and search for file abcdef.d2s in your system to locate where the chars are saved
