    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?

    I was thinking about a Wind Druid or a Trapsin, leaning towards the Trapsin.

    Thanks guys.

    Just max LS/DS/CBS/SW/Shadow master
    Put desired points into weapon block/fade/bos (1pnt)

    What about FB instead of DS to help with those LI's. If DS is way better I'll go with DS but was just trying to mix it up a little.

    Thanks.

    Tats my preferred method of dealing with LI. Your merc and shadow helps too.

    both is usually best.

    the standard build is (basically in this order):

    20 light sentry
    20 death sentry
    20 fire blast
    20 charged bolt sentry
    10+ into shadow master
    1 to fade and burst of speed, mind blast, and cloak of shadows

    don't forget to keep a (shopped) pair of +3 shadow skills claws on switch for pre-buffing your shadow and fade.

    JRichard's build is nice, but using CBS is really only for bosses. I've found that, even while MFing, trappers do best by running areas like the Pit and Ancient Tunnels- high monster level areas- as opposed to runnign act bosses. They're just too slow to get to for the non-sorceress.

    Thats pretty much how I built my trapper, and she works pretty damn slick. All you need is one point in Mind Blast to keep everyone busy and then you can do as you please.
