    Good PvM Build and Overall MF'er?

    Hey,

    Decided to start playing again after a long break and since everything seems to be constantly changing with D2 it seems like I'm a little behind the times.

    Anyways, I'll be playing HC Ladder and am looking for a character that can do well in PvM and is also a decent MF'er. I would like to stay away from a Sorc, just because she's so "normal", even though I know she's probably the best. So, any ideas?

    Thanks guys.

    Okay, thanks. I like the Wind Druid idea. Quick question, how's this type of build, a Ghost Assassin?

    I like the idea of being able to never die and BoS would speed things up a bit. If not, I think I'll go with Wind Druid.

    Thanks guys.

    This is how I build a PVM sentry/fireblast trapper. She can solo anywheres in hell in crap gear though lightning immunes do slow her down.

    fireblast 20 (This is your lightning immune killer)
    web 18 only (only this much benefits your bolt sentry)
    bolt sentry 20 (boss killer)
    light sent 20
    death sent 1+ (everything after the above and one point wonders)

    1 point wonders:
    Claw Mastery
    Psychic Hammer
    Burst of Speed
    Weapon Block
    Cloak of Shadows (this is great!)
    Fade
    Shadow Warrior
    Mind Blast (this is great!)
    Shadow Master (one point with moderate skills (mostly shoped) gets the job done)

    Get a normal defiance merc or a holy freeze merc may be better for hardcore.

    For an excellent guide on building and playing a trapper by jrichard see:

    Hammerdin has my vote.
    He can kill almost anything, and he can boost defence and blocking chance with holy shield, and he can has more life than a sorceress.
    IMO he is my best player when playing untwinked.

    I think I'm either going to build a Trapper like the one listed above or a Wind Druid. Thanks guys.
