    First class to start off with?

    Hey guys,

    I decided once again I would play Diablo II after 2 years, during that time completely forgot all the experience ive had.

    So I was wondering which class should I start off first, making an MF character or what not.

    Please give me your opinion ;)

    Sorc is the obvious MF choice.

    After that, I'd say fishymancer (necromancer) even though I disagree in small ways with his point allocations.

    Lol define fishymancer.

    Btw do you have a good guide on how to build a mf sorc most likely orb one, since I remember having one a while back or is it better to have a blizz one?

    Blizzsorc is the best starter if you want to mf and to have runs faster.

    Otherwise you can pick up almost all you want, it depends on your playstyle and awaitings from the diablo future :p

    Take a peek on the Strategy -> Necromancer forums to find out more about fishy!

    As much as I want to say go blizz.. if you are playing untwinked (most likely) I would do an orber... here is how I have mine set up currently... (when I get enough gear i will make either more balanced meteorb or lightning)

    20 orb
    20 warmth (without good gear mana is a pain)
    10 teleport (lower mana cost a little)
    1 static (duh)
    20 cold mastery
    rest in ice bolt

    now it isnt perfect but i does me just fine in nm mfing.. which is where I will be until more hell baal games pop up...

    I currently use

    peasants crown
    2 p topaz armor
    splender shield
    some wand that gives 1 to sorc lvls
    1 to sorc skills ammy
    nagel ring 25%
    tal rashas belt
    some rare boots and gloves

    I found/made it all myself and while insight would work better then 20 in warmth, I wanted to not worry about getting one asap or depend on it...


    my build WILL change but for now... :thumbup:

    Please don't ever make that build.

    Make a meteorb sorc. There's a build guide. That build above is not something you want to start with.

    Re: First class to start off with?

    Like other people suggested, I'm finding a blizz sorc to work pretty well this early in ladder. My gear isn't great but it works. Hardest part was getting my resistances up to par.

    Pcrown
    "um" vmagi
    Spirit sword
    lidless w/ pdiamond
    alibaba/milabrega shield switch
    Goldwrap
    Magefists
    Rare mf/resist boots
    rare mf/@resists ammy (w/ life rep and beastly fire res)
    10fcr/res/mana ring <-- hit the second last bp with this
    res/mf ring

    And the sorriest collection of charms you've ever seen XD

    Skills: 1 warmth, 1 tele, 1 frozen armor, 1 cold mastery, rest in blizz and it's synergies.

    Still, i teleport pretty fast, have decent mana and life. Might switch out the spirit for a wizzy now that i'm in hell (Which would free up some of my other gear for more mf, though there would be a drop in dmg). But the current build works great in nightmare with a decent amount of mf. Defiantly something that might be worth aiming for if your looking to get some loots out of nightmare before trying hell.

    Re: First class to start off with?

    i find this build to be best on early ladder:

    20 point in teleport (you can make baal games and tp there w/o needing insight)
    10 points in statics (thats give you almost 3/4 screen statics, VERY useful for norm/nm baal runs to static down last wave)
    16 points in cold (most non cold immune monsters have 0 CR, so more is just pointless)
    rest in blizz + synergies

    Items:

    spirit sword
    stealth breast plate (shop akara for plain 2os breast plate)
    1-2 fcr rings (depends on sword roll, you need at least 28fcr on spirit to use only 1 fcr ring)
    reest: what ever you can find.

    Out come: endeless teleport, 63 fcr: enough for blind teleporting, moat trick for hell mephie / cows on hell if you are skiller enough CS or even baal run solo. (for br you need nice insight merc to kill skellies from wave 2)
