    There is no definitive answer, but in my opinion its a choice between the blizz sorc and the fishymancer. For fun builds, i say singer barb is right up there
    EDIT: @ HBB, it only is if you max out increased stamina and find potion, otherwise the build is rubbish. :lol:

    What do you mean by "best"? A hammerdin may plow through everything around it, but I doubt I'll ever make one, since I would find them boring. I love my lightening trapsin to death, but she's not likely to find herself on any reasonable list of uber-builds.

    How do you want to use the character? Alone, or in multi-play? MF'ing? If so, where? PvP? If so, against which types of characters? Softcore or hardcore?

    Why are you asking here if its bnet? In bnet in a full or specialised group, any build can plow through hell. a couple of pallys and a sorc will destroy anything before it gets within melee range.
    If your fighting on your own on bnet, then as i suggested first, If your in a group, then a very offensive build is best, such as sorcs. slower builds like fishy's may be very safe, but cant keep up the pace on bnet.
    EDIT: The guy said Bnet to begin with, thats why i asked. proabbly edited while i was reading, but before quoting. honestly, he said bnet.

    Am I the only one that notices three of these threads? :x

    Best is better defined person by person. There is no true 'best' build.

    :lol: i think F_B is tired or something.

    anyway as others have said there is no "best" build its up to the individual

    want to laught at gloams? make a dedicated gloam killer avenger with 95% res all and some lightning absorb.
    want to kill baal safely? build a fishymancer and look at the cute baal trying to attack after decryp and clay golem .Great for mf too

    the best build is the build that you find fun to play:thumbsup:

    Nah, cause you aren't the only one. :lol: But seriously, everyone else is right. It's not all about the l33t ub4r characters, it's what you find enjoyable to play. I have had a lot of fun with my Trapsin as well, she can do P8 Pits pretty well, except for the dang archers. I now love Cloak of Shadows. :D

    I'm liking the lightning trapsin too.

    And funny enough, I had no idea that cloak of shadows was any good for anything except as a prereq until I got panicky and accidentally hit it instead of recasting my shadow in a panicky fight... took the archer heat right off the top.

    I think a summoning necro is the overall best. I can do anything i wish to very well with mine, except run the maggot lair or arcane sanctuary. If you want to know what character can do one certain thing the best, i would likely choose another, but since we're talking who is best OVERALL, for me it's summoning necro, hands down. :)

    How about a Sanctuary/Smite Paladin? :lol:

    For killing power, a Hammerdin, though Wind Druids are none too shabby. Lightning Trapsins are probably the straight up second safest build ever invented (obviously skellimancers win), while Berserkers are totally brutal melee characters.

    The best PvM build, by my standards, is any build that can kill anything in the game in a reasonable amount of time (not counting extra fast extra strong stone skinned frenzytaurs flanked by Conviction enchanted gloams... or Magic/Physical immunes if that's even possible).

    Magezon
    Archmage
    Avenger
    Executress (Enchantress with Kingslayer 2h axe)
    Beserker
    Hammerdin

    LI beats her. :lol:

    The best char is the one the is the most fun to each individual. I don't really like LF zon at all, it may come to one of the worst for me.

    The best char is YOUR OWN char. :thumbsup:

    best as in most powerful in would have to go hammerdin and unlike many here i find him a lot of fun to play and the only thue char sept maby the overlord can do everything as only 1 monster in the game is immun to him and they are out of the way.

    as for fun thats a thought one but i would have to go for pure lit sorc with 120% FCR or and Overlord(CE just rocks)

    other chars i am enjoy playing are IKM WW barb, power zealot and mavzon

    the most boring char IMO is my LF zon also the char i play with the most since she is my pindle runner
