General 1.10 questions I'm reinstalling D2 after a long time to play on bnet with some friends in our own self contained group. None of us have played much since before 1.10. There will probably be 3 of us. I don't need specifics, but what types of characters are reasonably strong? Nova Sorcs? Skelliemancers? WW Barbs? I don't mind making cookie-cutter chars since our goal is to play through Hell Baal without any outside help. I've looked in the strat compendium and guides there usually account for having specific gear in mind. We're starting (and finishing) from scratch. Our tentative starting chars are a barb, a nec, and a zon. Will a barb be too gear dependant to be able to contribute later on (other than being a bo slave)? Might a javazon be a better choice than a bowazon? I know that necs/sorcs are much less gear dependant than non-casters, and I don't want anyone in my group to lose interest because their character can't keep up in terms of meaninful contribution.
