Best D2 Classic Build?

I only have D2 Classic, and was wondering what the best build for it would be. Im thinking something that doesnt rely much on equipment, because there arent many +Skill items in D2C.
Thanks

Lance Whirly Barb? They used to be top dog in Classic and as far as I know they are not very items dependant.

cheers,

Skellymancer, Meteorb sorcs come to my mind.
Hammerdins?
All of these are pretty +skills dependant, not really suitable to Classic IMHO. The Hammerdin did pretty well in Classic though, so you might want to consider one anyway.

cheers,

my best classic build:

20 Frozen Orb
20 Warmth
20 Static Field
other 1 point wonders (frozen armor, teleport, etc)

with no casting delay, these chars were excellent. just spam frozen orb as fast as you can.

umm, these are all 1.10 LOD builds that are effective. skellies were shunned in classic, tehy were basically moveable shields that would lose agaisnt 1 mosnters agaisnt 4 skellies past norm. meteorbs were very rare, as back then (well, any time pre-synergy) tri-ele sorcs were viable, 1 skill from each branch maxed, prereqs and 1 point wonders you could have a very strong build that coudl kill anything, as no monsters are tri-immune.

Lance baba is omg cheesy goodness. :D

Rares were uber, you just had to wait for the imbue quest and save them till you find some lances. Aim for >150ED on a lance, -40%reqs if you're uber lucky (like me :D ) and you're set. No IAS requirement makes the whirl hit gazallions of times. Bash is TEH support skill, i believe zerk sucked.

Take care to load the .06 patch or later, as lances were bugged before that and wouldn't drop.

Oh and about casting delays, the meteor sorc was another ultra cheesy build, think meteors spamming at 10fps or so. OMFG. I wanna make one. :D

**Pre-1.10**

Clay Golem - 1
Golem Mastery - 1
Blood Golem - 1
Summon Resist - 1

Amplify Damage - 1
Iron Maiden - 20

Put all the rest into Poison/Bone skills. Corpse Explosion, Bone Spear, Bone Spirit.

I beat Hell Diablo, Hardcore, full game, no help with this build, and got there alone in full games. Level 37.

There IS a 1.10 in classic to...
Indeed there is. But i'm sure its vastly different from LoD. ;) And a person with 'only' D2C probably doesn't play 1.10, yes?

You can connect to b.net with D2 classic, and so would have to download the 1.10 patch. But from what I heard, 1.10 destroyed classic.

The most fun to play would be a maxed frozen orb, maxed warmth sorc. There's an acct somewhere of a guy who finished hardcore with like 43str and the rest in energy. Hundreds of ice shards filling the screen looks so cool!

i remember the old school lancer barbs and hammerdins.....they both would rule any 1.10 char.
Ummm....not quite. v1.10 LoD chars are a LOT more powerful than anything classic could have ever dreamed up. There are more mods, items and skill ideas. About the only thing classic REALLY had going for it was its godly rares, and now 1.10 > classic for uber rares.
