    Best Ladder build

    Ok, so I will start a new ladder char in like 2-3weeks from now, since i will constantly have 8 ppl in the game I only want to get one source of damage, the point is to have alot of dmg to own the monsters that are not immune in the shortest time.

    Ok, I was expecting one choise, but since you put so many o presume you consider them ecually.Now let me judge:
    ww-barb->not that fast, doesn't have the range advantage of other mentioned builds
    bone nercro-too slow, not enough dmg in my opinion,vulnerable
    hurricane-not enough dmg, i don't find him that fast
    lightning sorce-too slow, LF owns it
    meteor sorce-also a bit slow, i find blizzard faster
    Ok so now we got the asn/blizz/zon lef
    Asn-Can;t say very much about it, may be a good choice, dunno

    Blizzard vs LF:
    Lf owns it in overall
    Cows:equal
    Baal:pretty tight, but the thundergods for LF make it be resistant again those nasty glooms.
    Meph:Sorce better, the LF has council problems
    Diablo:sorce, but since it's hard getting there, it won't count.to mnay immunse on the way
    Countess:LF better
    Pindle:Equal
    Frozenstein: you can't even reech him with the sorce,lightning is way better in the frozen caverns
    Shenk/Eldricht:LF by far
    Nighlatak:hmmm im pretty sure he and his friends are cold immunes
    against cold/light iimmunes: I find zon better, she has a physical attack with life leech that can be helped by a freeze/might mercenary and by some "wuith charges items"with iron golem or spirits. Sorce has the static field, but if merce dies, she is very much alone.

    if you arent worried about immunes, javazon is imo the best. single tree sorcs are all very nice also thuogh.. pure fire can be crazy with nice gear, lightning is fun and blizzard is always nice.

    Can't believe you guys haven't mentioned the infamous "OMGZBBQ NOOBLET NIGMA Hammerdin".
    Ok, honestly, the most versatile, possibly the fastest, and item-independent build is probably a Hammerdin. Not to mention none of the monsters are immune to BH.

    Baals act2 mmummies are immune to magical. And item-independent is not an argument for high levels. Besides the pal need fcr, so he is ver dependent on a crafted amulet.

    Theres lots of non-uber gear with fast cast on it. Spirit sword / shield, wizzy, skin of vipermagi to mention a few. All very cheap on the trade channels at the moment! If you have a rare ring with 10% fcr then you should be able to hit some of the higher break points without too much difficulty.

    I have a few high level hammerdins and I dont have an amu with fast cast on it, they all perform very well.

    Skelemancer ftw!

    Frost Zealots too.

    Then again, I hated playing the same nonsense that every other character out there was playing, and while those aren't original builds, they're a damn sight better than your typical (boring) blizz sorc/meteor sorc/hammydin.

    they are immune to magic, but BH has a undead bonus which allows hammerdins to kill them with ease

    Hammerdins can damage any monster in the game except a rare monster in act 3 temples called a Wailing Beast. All the other magic immunes in the game are undead thus BH can damage them. Hammerdins are the fastest all purpose PvM killers in the game.
