    how do you make charachters?

    before you guys make characters, do you have annis and torches ready for them? becuase i thought about it, and say u dont have either of them and u put 35 pts into dex so ur char could have max block, only to get anni + torch and then u realize you wasted your 35 pts into dex becuase u got them from charms..i want to make a new char but i just think ill just waste a bunch of points into strength and dex and stuff.

    I gather all my items, figure out the amount of strength and dex I need for items before I even create the character.
    Usually I save all my stats and skills until level ~80 or until I'm at a high enough level to equip everything, then just put points into whatever I need.

    As a SP-player, I have pretty much all the gear ready and waiting for my characters, but that is different in SP than bnet. But personally, I wouldn't worry about some 35 statpoints, it's not that big difference having 100 more life.

    It depends on which char I am playing. I don't plan for my starting chars, and after I get enough gear, I simply remake them.

    You can also use stat-boosting stuff until you have all the gear you need.

    Lionheart armor
    Saracen's ammy
    Various strength and dexterity charms
    etc.

    I make em with love and care and a few godly itemz on top.

    If your making your first character, don't worry about getting him perfect. Once you have built up wealth though, then you can start buying the items for ur char b4 you make them and planning them out. Thats only after you can afford top of the line items though and only really if you are PvP'ing. If you wanna PvM or mf, go nuts and spend a couple points in str or dex to use different items you like and use em sooner.

    The only time a couple points of life is going to matter is for pvp and if you are very serious about it. PVM and Mf who cares if you have 30 more dex then you need.

    I make scabby one to test the build, then I make a prototype with as good items I can muster, then I continuously rebuild until I'm satisfied or if I get new items.

    Worst so far was rebuilding a 95 char, I wanted a different skillpoint placement.

    Re: how do you make charachters?

    this would be ideal:

    1. choose your build
    2. choose your final equip
    3. determine your needed stats points and check all stat bonuses on your final equip + charms
    4. develop a level-up plan and chose some leveling equip
    5. develop a level-up skill placement for optimized efficiency regarding level-up equipment
    6. level your char

    this would be the normal way:
    1. same
    2. look at what you have
    3. determine stats points regarding what you could get until you reach your desired level (85?) and what you have
    4. use standard gear and according stat points (60 str inluding bonuses for sigons or something like that)
    5. save as many stat points as possible until you know your endgame gear
    6. start leveling

    Re: how do you make charachters?

    Usually I decide my gear layout, and then collect the items. Once I have them I rush my guy, level, and then see if I need to remake due to stupidity on my part or not.

    However, once in a while I will rush the character first. I only do it if I already have some of the gear and someone just happens to be rushing another person. In general, I don't like having rushed and ungeared chars hanging around.
