    Coming back for reset, need advice!

    So I came back for 1.11 but quit mainly due to the fact that my old builds were not fun anymore (primarily played a fishymancer and a strafeazon, though I had a hammerdin). What I am getting at is that I want to come back and play after the reset but could use some advice on what you recommend for someone just coming back that is viable yet something a bit different from what is above.

    Greatly appreciated!

    If depends entirely on what you want from the build. Is this general PVM or are you trying to create a Magic Find character?

    I'm thinking that I need a MF character first so I can gather gear to do others. Do you agree?

    Go for a sorceress, either Meteorb or Blizzballer would do nicely. Both have dual elemental attacks so very few monsters will be immune to you and you'll be able to solo the game if so desired. Along with that you'll have easy access to Teleport and can run bosses extremely quickly to find the equipment needed to deck out your other characters.

    Hmm. That would not be a bad idea. I'll look it up right now :)

    Mursillis is right, but if you're planning to run Mephisto the most I'd just go with a pure Blizzard build. The problem of course is you won't be able to solo your way through hell.

    Well I'll likely want to farm hell mode for the high end stuff so a dual tree build would be ideal.

    Still need to decide what my uber runner will be.

    I'd wait until you gain some items before planning an uber runner.

    I plan way too far in advance. It's just how I am.

    1pt smiter for uber runner.. Look under Paladin forum for 1 pt smiter guild to tristram.. or something like that :p Its basically a zealer with 1 pt smite for the bosses. The author (I cant remember name atm) lists equipment choices, both for poor (ideal for ladder reset, yes?) and rich (mabye later, you remake, no?)

    Anyways.. just helpin out. I would stick to a sorc w/ meteorb or blizzballer like said before. Run more than just meph, do tc 85 and up runs, plus swing by lower kurast campfire site for 3 super chests. Speed first, power second, mf third = greatest chance to gain good rewards. Besides, a char with 300-350 MF is more than enough due to SEVERE diminishing curves, which is easy for a sorc while still killing fast and traveling fast.
