    Best Char and why.

    Assassin - Don't need keys, Really.
    Thats a unique ability no other char can get and saves 1 space of carry-on stash, and gives the power never to miss a chest drop & reducing your trips to town All Through the Game.

    Honestly..

    A Necro.

    Without being nerfed, or even using a cookie cutter...

    You can solo hell with one.

    Posion Necro
    Fishy Necro
    Golem Necro (if you are rich)

    I mean.. what other character can do that? Besides a over nerfed, pally?

    Edit: Also good for Mfing.

    OT How the hell do you solo hell with a golemmancer? I have yet to get any of his golems to do even remotely decent damage(and I have tried making iron golems out of BOTDs in SP)

    And its all lies everyone knows sorceresses are the best, why? because I say so. Also because they get teleport, are casters(and casters are cool), aswell as being able to dish out some pretty amazing damage(to around 80% of all monsters at least, and for the rest you have teleport)

    Re: Best Char and why.

    YOu should look at the single player forum sometime..seriously. Untwinked punch sorcs have soloed hell.

    As for golemancers..you have obviously never played one. 1000 fire damage is a lot for a fire golem, and it's so slow and has such poor AR that it won't ever be able to kill many enemies. Not to mention permenately fire immune enemies.

    An iron golem is just as bad.

    I'm not sure that you realize "nerf" means "made less effective", pallies are certainly the least nerfed class with the sorc.

    Re: Best Char and why.

    I agree that the assassin is the best character because of her lockpicking skills. When I played my first assassin character I did it because of that (really!).

    All you other people are being OT, we need to talk about that great ability of the assassin here.

    Re: Best Char and why.

    Why is everyone is this community over serious, take things way over the top, and disagree with everyone that hasn't been here forever? Its really annoying.

    and I meant twinked, Forgive me all mighty forum people.


    Edit: oh and sorry for having an opinon.

    And I'm currently soloing NM with my Necro ACT 3 at lvl 46. My iron Golem is doing just fine.

    Re: Best Char and why.

    There's a reason that the people who have been around a lot longer are disagreeing with the newer people. They're just a lot more familiar with the game as that's pretty much all we discuss and read up on here.

    My join date doesn't mean thats when I started playing the game.

    You know assuming does?


    People need to quit assuming things.


    I've been playing Diablo since it came out.

    They enjoy the game and love debate to some extent, and they are entitled to post opinions and experiences as well as fact.

    Re: Best Char and why.


    So I can't have an opinion unless its supported by hard fact?

    Or I'll get disagreed with, and treated like a noob that doesn't know what he is talking about?

    Yet, this is a community...

    Still, that assassin ability of opening chests with no key:

    Great!

    Re: Best Char and why.

    The best character is the amazon because I never get bored playing one. But that's not a great reason, just my opinion of course.

    Wait, bear with me as I've never played an assassin, but that lock-picking is an innate skill and not an acquired one? Do the other characters have any innate abilities? Hmm, a quick check says no they don't.

    Well, then we should create some!

    Amazon: infinite arrow/bolt supply or at least the ability to carry more than the other characters.

    Re: Best Char and why.

    Unless I am wrong, opinions don't need to be supported by fact, that's why they are opinions.

    You may post any opinion you like, and if you get flamed or treated like a noob, report the post. That's what the report post feature is there for.

    I'd just like to point out that every single character class and their corresponding builds can solo Hell, most untwinkled but a select few do need some help. If Superdave can solo Hell with a purely passive Amazon, anything is possible if enough time is put into it.

    Moving on...

    Paladin hands down, and no I don't mean just the Hammerdin (shudder). He has an aura for every situation. Got IMed, use Cleansing. Low resistances, use Salvation. Need to get rid of those darn devilkins before their Shaman resurrects them, use Redpemption. Got an monster immunity problem, use Conviction.

    Not just that but plenty of one point wonder skills as well. Want to get a torch, put one point in Smite and you're good to go.

    Need I say more?

    The Assassin is nice and all, but no keys is overrated. No one is so crammed for space that the one square keys use is going to make that much of a difference. That and they are dropped fairly regularly so you never really run out.

    Re: Best Char and why.

    + another one.

    Dr00ds are leet.

    I personally think Necromancers are the worst class, as there's only a few builds you can make with Necromancers compared with other classes.

    Re: Best Char and why.

    Well this is going to depend on your play-style more than anything else.

    I seem to play a lot of sorceresses but the only chars I don't seem to get on with are druid's, amazons and pallys. But to be fair, I haven't played that many.

    Certainly mood is another factor. Who doesn't love trundling behind their necro, just snarfling things up. Another day that would bore me silly and I'd be screaming for the rapid key-changing of an assassin.

    Horses for courses. There is no such thing as a 'best' character. Merely a 'better' character for a certain person at a certain time doing a certain type of play (eg MFing, key running, going for level 99 etc).

    Re: Best Char and why.

    I went straight to the Necro, as I was reminded of the original
    "Jason and the Argonauts" movie, a favorite of mine when I was a kid. Having your own skeleton army!

    Also, if your a big fan of the rock band Rush. Good Rush fans would know.
    So inherently I suppose I was pulled in by his style.
    Ya it' nerdy. But as my girlfriend says all the time, "you don't look like nerd! But you are nerd!"
