Best Chaos Runner?

Looking for the fastest/most effective chaos runner. Mf is not an issue because all I'm looking for are flawless gems and charms. On that note I may also do some cow runs as well.

Granted that hammerdin is probably the best but I'm looking for a different char to play. Also gonna rule out sorc solely because of immunities and that I don't really want to play one of those either.

Summoner with Max CE/Mastery/Mages/Warrior and merc w/ infi ( necro tele-ing amping ofc)

Ask Frosty!

I would say a ZOn clear faster then a Summoner with max CE/mastery/mages/warrior since all melee will kill themselves whenever a caster decides to put you in the Iron Maiden. Atleast my skeletons does =/

Yeah I was thinking javazon however I think something that does physical or magic damage may be better due to immunities. (bowzon comes to mind, either a multi or strafer)

I agree with Rabbitz and Lord_Alucard : I vote either Javazon/Infinity, or Summoner/Infinity. But in any case, when the Merc dies from Iron Maiden, it makes a great difference in killing speed and you have to go in town to resurrect him, so IM isn't an argument. Corpse Explosion is very deadly when combined with Infinity+Amp Damage, but I think both builds would do the job well :wink:.

I know that summon necro with ce is an effective build but I find it too laggy for my liking and I'm not a big fan of the mages either (personally I think they're useless even with infinity) plus you have to factor in the couple minutes needed to raise the army.

P.S: The infinity is more for the CE (1/2 Physical, 1/2 Fire damage) and for the -% def than for the mages. With Infinity, your skellies pretty much auto-hit (even moreso than normal) and the CE really really hurts, even in an 8 player game. But yah, it can get laggy...

i know you siad your ruling out sorcs but an idea i got from killian was to make my chain light sorc carry the infinity herself, that way the -light res was on every1 she hit and not just the ones the merc physically hit. his sorc is the fastest ive seen for keyrunning/baal/rushes ive seen around (way better than my hammerdin). his killing speed is wicked fast and he doesnt suffer at all by not using the standard escuta's(sp?)//spirit combo. if you throw a peace ring on her theres no chance of nith using CE either :azn:

Enigma wearing Hammedin. I wonder if the Uni demonhide gloves or lawbringer give the Dam to Undead bonus to hammers? Probably not.

A Nova sorc with Infinity is crazy when it comes to killing speed, that is true... But its a rather expensive build. But It's worth it if you ask me, just slam Infinity in a scythe (for looks mainly =) ) and get alot of +skill from skillers and good gear, you MUST have max fcr for fastest Nova, then its max out Nova, Light Mastery, Energy Shield and Telekinesi, one point in a cold shield and rest in Warmth.

That is an interesting idea that I haven't really contemplated before jinxx.
Only problem I see is that you lose a lot of fcr and without the hoto/eschuta and spirit. Would be interested to see the complete gear setup for that though.

Also interested in your gear setup if you don't mind posting it Lord.

LF zon with infinity is undoubtly the most lethal killer in any games with huge mobs. But if you like safety, fishymancer is a well balance between firepower and safety net. Not as fast(just alittle short) but a heck lot safer.
