    Classes/Builds faster than a Hammerdin?

    In terms of speed and consistency, does anybody know any other class/builds that clears all difficulties faster than a hammerdin in a full game?

    Lite Sorc + Infinity? If you use crescent moon and put an infinity on a merc, along with griffs, you should be able to break immunes and kill them at ridiculous speeds. Faster than a hammerdin, I'm pretty sure.

    I don't know how fast a hammerdin really is, because I never tried one. But I know that a good skilled and equipped Zealot at 4 fps with a "Death"-zerker and a "Famine"-zerker in the second slot is VERY fast.

    You're better off with Grief, and even then you won't be beating a hammerdin in terms of speed for most activities.

    Huplet is right a lite sorc with P gear and infinity merc wit gg gear too will clear full room of monster in one or too attacks. (i have both a lite sorc and hammerdin)

    Maybe light sorc is faster than Hammerdin at pvm but in terms of gear, Enigma is more "universal" (it's like the best armor in practically every non-sorc build), far more than Infinity. So going with good hammerdin gear can also get you good gear in other builds, if you know what I mean.

    Hammerdins can be hard to aim too ... and like said, they are over powered deluxe.

    they might be overpowered but for rushing there is simply no character that can come close

    I believe light sorcs can rush hell in 8 player games without too much trouble as well. It's just that hammerdins will NEVER have a problem (i.e. Ancients spawn unbreakable LI/PI which means some trouble for the light sorc).

    I agree with the last post completely. I have a moderate hammerdin this ladder (nothing great, really), and everything just dies. Put on some switch gears and the ubers drop like flies as well.
