    Easiest/quickest character to level for rune quests?

    I would like peoples opinions on what is the easiest character to gain levels with so as to advanace quickly to hellforge in hell difficulty. What i mean is with relatively little twinking and not a reliable method of rushing thru the game to act 4 hell (ie: a group of friends who can help me thru some tough parts) what is the quickest character to level with? I would like to someday gather enough runes to make some of the new runewords but at the rate i'm currently finding runes i fear Diablo 3 will be out even before i could make a heart of the oak.

    I was thinking a hammerdin. Any other possibilities?


    Thanks.

    I have a lvl 87 pally and a lvl 82 blizz sorc. I give hell rush's with my friend in less than a half hour for hellforge drops. So far I've found 3x ists a vex, zod, 2x gul, a ton of ums, and a jah I believe.

    /w *xXINFESTEDXx if you need a hell rush I am normally on anytime from 3-10 USeast.(non-ladder) btw

    He is interested in keeping his runes, not giving them up.

    Hmmm... at least people are reding what i posted :)

    What i would like some advice on is what character builds are the easiest/quickest to rush to act 4 hell if you dont have access to a friend who can rush you.

    I gave it some thought and i think maybe a Hammerdin or a Meteor/Orb sorc.

    Any other builds you fellas might think can rush thru game quicly solo?

    Join a game where some people try to defeat the ancients. Party with them and stand in town. That should complete the quest!

    Wow this threat turned to CRAP really fast. Lets try and put it back on track.

    Ok, as far as I can tell you have a few options for fastest hellforge, if your doing the hellforge yourself I think a bone necro would be the fastest with the right EQ. Personally I'm going to play my guys up to level 40 and then use my second machine to blast them through nightmare up to the forge with my level 90 sorc. I think this is going to be the fastest way.

    I'm going to use a combination of Deaths set, Angelic Set and Sigons set. This should net me some repectable resist for normal with +2 to all skills. I think I'm going to try with a Cold sorc synergizing blizzard with 7 in each prereq until 30 then slam the points into it.

    My other option is a Paladin, I think this might also be viable too going hammers. splitting my skills between the synergies as same as I did with the sorc. I'm going to try 5 of each and tell you guys how long it took using 2 computers and trying to rush myself.

    Seems to take me three hours or so...check me to see if I'm doing something wrong:

    Act1 - Do Andy
    Act2 - Get staff, ammy, do summoner, do duriel
    Act3 - Do Travincial (in sight of), do Meph (in sight of)
    Act4 - Do Diablo (in sight of)
    Act5 - Join some baal quest game to get the credit

    Rinse repeat.

    Act 2 probably takes 50-75% of the rush time. If I do it with 3 comps and save the staff for other chars, it really only saves me the maggot lair time, as it seems you still have to do the tainted sun quest (viper lair) and kill the summoner, or you can't go in the rusher's tp.

    Is there any way to do act 2 faster?

    So let me get this straight.

    You can get credit for killing Baal while staying in town?

    Because I know you can not take a tp to him unless you have done ancients which you can not get credit for unless you are level 20, 40, 60 for N, NM, H modes. Thanks.
