Hey all, I havent played in a while. Was wanting to make an easy char to start back up. Can a blizz sorc solo hell well? Or should i go with a hammerdin/ I'm going to be playing single player. Thanks in advance.
I think a Blizz sorc will have trouble with all the cold immunes in Hell.
Unfortunately(they are overpowered), a hammerdin will fare far better.
A WW barb with a point in Conc is probably the safest choice though, as he can now safely whirl his way trough CS, without Iron Maiden ruining his day.
Depends on what you want to do. For roleplay style play-through def. Hammerdin is the easy and most powerful choice. Barbs have a bit(or a lot lol) of problems before a decent martel/lance/bonesnap/whatever. A blizz sorc can solo too(and is very fast for runs and all and the damage is almost hdin level), just the cold immune council member in hell is the only serious problem(ignoring hell de seis) in the entire game. You could also run two chars in parallel, with a virtual machine or something(so using sorc to tele and hdin to tank&kill/barb to protect & kill).
If youre single player i would suggest 1.06 though, much better balanced in general, more viable builds.
Here in Classic, Blizzard sorcs will not be able to rush Hell.
Act 1 : easy
Act 2 : Not an issue if you remember that you do not need to kill Coldworm or any Vipers.
Act 3 : Meph would be do-able, but at least one of the council is cold immune and they hit hard.
Act 4 : Seis will be laughing at you after running a few circles around you.
