    Best PvP-er now

    Hi all,

    Wow... I haven't been here for so long now.

    Since 1.10 came basically I stopped playing this game. Now just looking around and sometimes check news on this forum regarding D3.

    But anyways, during my D2 time I was a fanatic PvP-er and I'm just curious how the PvP scene is now.

    What char(s) is the most reliable in pvp? (during my days it was Ama and Sorc strongest and Barb can kill everyone)


    Cheers,

    blizzard sorc [16k dmg with -260%+ enemy resist!]
    trap assassin

    sorcs: orbers with or without es, lightsorcs not too common, fireballers. all very strong

    amas: cs-zons and ga ofc

    pala: hammerdins, smiters most common, but also "dreamers" utilizing the new Dream rw with conviction

    Barbs: ww-barbs reigns supreme. one of the strongest and most versatile builds.

    Necros: summoners with beast, pride merc and teleport. bone spear/spirit with nice absorbing armors are very very tough to beat for any classes.

    druids: winddruids most common and a strong char

    assas: whirlwind assas and trappers both very nice duellers


    and i prolly forgot a whole bunch of powerfull chars.

    Ah thanks for the replies.

    What I wonder is that ama's are still in the list.. GA isn't that strong anymore without pierce. Only what I can think of is 7fps ama's but then with DR gear it is game over for ama.

    What I find funny is the dual weap barb (create one myself during 1.09) is also powerfull? With no block?

    Wind druid.. yes i have seen them and played them but I hope there is a cure for them now.

    Fire/Ice sorc ... glad to hear they are still powerfull. My QUEEN.

    Bone Nec: my favorite! How about poison nec? Zoo nec is common and used before but I could imagine more now with enigma.

    Also very glad barb is still strong.

    Assa: well I thought they would suck now because of all enigma.

    Pala: dreamer is new to me... new build? But love to have the hammerdin back. Smiter is not that strong in 1.09 so why now?

    Cheers,

    Barbs are just versatile, they do not "zomg pwn everyone"...

    There is NO 1 dominant build that can take on all others easily...

    Do like I did, build a few PvP chars, based on each other's weaknesses..

    Fire Sorc
    Bone Necro
    WW Barb

    Bone Necro < WW Barb < Fire Sorc < Bone Necro < etc etc etc...

    This way you'll have every weakness "covered"..

    Or if you're rich just make one of each..lol

    But ultimately, it's more about who's playing the character than the character itself...

    GA is still pretty strong. It's still very fast and homes very well. The new Faith runeword bow has Fanatacism on it so their damage and speed is pretty high these days.

    They have enough life and kill fast enough that they can tank anything that they could block for the most part. WW barbs designed specifically for melee/barb dueling with shields are the only thing that the BvC barb would need a shield for.

    Trappers and WW sins. Both can lock them down with MB+traps.

    Psn necs can still be dangerous, but like most elemental chars they can have their damage reduced drastically.

    The best WW sins use Enigma now. They are still very good.

    Yeah, the dreamer is a new build as of the last ladder season's new runeword Dream. The Smiter can get damage as high as 10k smite with the new runeword Grief. Even before that though, they were practically kings of melee combat next to the WW barb.

    Windi < WWsin < Babba bigtime!
    I have never beaten a well-built barb with my WWsin. Never! The best thing you can so vs them is MB-WW and pray for the open wounds to kick in.

    Dual wield barbs are considered among the top duelers by any means by alot of pvpers, due to their HUGE amounts of life, blob's barb has 8.3k life, an average barb has around 6k life if they're decent, and do around 6k ww dmage. and Dreamer builts is pallies using a new runeword which can give them aura stacking effect that uses holy shock, and with zeal, they can do INSANE amounts of damage, and as for smiters, the new runeword Grief, can give smiters 10k+ smite damage while still have enough left over skills to make it into a hybrid like t/v or smite/charger.

    welcome back to the game :cool:

    Thanks for all the replies!

    WOW .. It is still a warm place here with all the nice ppl visiting this forum.

    And yeah... reading your replies I'm itching to start again. But since I do not have a lot time and have to start all over again (all my accounts are expired or gave away) I don't think this will happen.

    But just talking about it is nostalgic and make me remeber the ghood time I had with this beautiful game.

    Once again thanks for the replies!

    Don´t forget that BvC barbs now have grief...and greif has venom CTC
    poison damage is NOT absorbed by bone armor, so the necro has lost some ground now since ladder only runewords were released.

    so barbs are at an all time high, at least on ladder...
    but smiters are STRONG, however they lack the mobility of WW.

    also, id like to point out that a skilled barb can beat a newbie necro, easy...the problem is when both are skilled, so if you are looking for public duels, you will most likely kill most people with a BvC barb.
    only a precious few will give you problems.

    my two cents

    ah memories. i went something like 50-3 against blobs barb with a desynch hammerdin in an epic series of 1x1 last year. best moments of 3+ year D2 career.


    liberator (hammerdin with charge switch) is among the 2-3 strongest and most versatile chars, usually underrated in these threads.
