    Trapper with Infinity merc or wind Druid works well too.

    I've seen some Zons clear it pretty well. Anything with decent killing speed can handle it pretty well though.
    The most common builds I see doing it would have to be Hammerdins and Lightning sorcs.

    I just saw it yesterday, sorc doing 40k+ dmg with lightning, 15k with CL (torch, anny, 2xsoj, 5 skillerz, perf lightning eschuta's, no idea what the rest was)
    and duh, with an infinity merc

    all I could do was trying to keep up (I was lvling from 25-70 in no time)

    A strafer with Fortitude and Faith (WF is nearly as good) turns the Chaos Sanctuarium into a slaughterhouse :devil: I'm sure it also works nicely with a LF zon or a lightning sorc with a merc wearing Infinity, as already said.

    i use my LF zon with merc infinity to do chaos runs. pretty efficient but obviously not as quick as a 40k lite sorc or a hammerdin

    but i guess any decent non melee char should be able to do chaos fine

    Most zons have little problems in Chaos aside from Jabbers.

    LF zons can easily tear through the packs with infinity and Big D like a hot knife through butter while a MS/Strafe zon with Faith can cut through the crowds.

    A Frost Maidern with ICE bow is hella dangerous in Chaos Sanctuary as well. Almost nothing can touch you and you can even put a tiny damage Insight on the Merc to avoid instant IM deaths. Only OKs are CI there but ICE bow still has some phyiscal damage anyway thanks to strafe.

    When there was something called marrow-bug around, you could solo chaos very fast with a Brand-based strafer that also used fortitude and LoH gloves.

    I think trappers are better than light sorc at chaosing because they have some great crowd-control spells like CoS and MB. The corpse explosion from death sentry help alot too.

    If you do make a lightning sorc and you put a low dmg infinity on ur merc to avoid IM deaths, you won't have to worry about crowd control cause you'll kill everything so fast.

    A skelemancer =D

    I've also done chaos runs with an infinity-wielding nova sorc and her insight merc and a frost vengeance paladin.

    Hmm, IMO it's too cumbersome to have two merc weapons and one of them is just for the CS and rather expensive as well. A strafer doesn't have that problem. When her merc dies, she will lose the might aura, but it's not such a big loss if she gets 300%ed from Fortitude, about 250%ed from fanaticism and a bit from dex, as well es 350%ed versus the pit lords from LoH. She has a valk and a decoy which are perfect for tanking in the CS. IM -> recast valk.
