    Ideal Builds for complete Elite Class-Specific Sets?

    I was just wondering what builds make the best use of some of the completed class-specific sets. Some, like Tals and IK, seem pretty obvious, but some not so much:

    - Tal Set: Pretty much any conventional Sorc, but especially dual-tree sorcs, right?

    - IK Set: IK Barb! :hammerhead: (whirlbarb)

    For the others:
    - Gris Set: Smiter? Freeze/Shock(non-Dream) Zealot?

    - Trang Set: Poisonmancer seems best (avoids the FCR bug), and Skellies can use anything, but anything else?

    - Mav Set: Frostmaiden?

    - Nat Set: Kicksin? Trapper?

    - Aldur Set: No idea whatsoever!

    I was just curious. I always like themed characters and wondered where the full sets may particularly shine.

    Some builds I have done:

    Tals set = meteorb, clorb

    IK set = titan barb

    Trang set = summoner, poisonmancer

    Nats set = clawsin, wwsin

    Mav set = GA zon, straferzon

    Aldur set = fire druid, fireclaws druid

    Gris set = FoHer, Cleric

    ---

    You can always mix the gear together too...IK + Gris + Tals...etc etc.

    I've only done the Gris set, it was an Avenger. It was fun and efficient too

    I was also going to say avenger for gris' set. Lots of sockets for lots of +min jewels.

    Ooh! I bet Gris's set *would* be awesome for an Abbot! I've always wanted to try one of those, but never got around to it. I might try that and an Avenger too (which I've also always wanted to do. Do well anyway. :p).

    I've always wanted to have an account with one character from each class built around their set. Or maybe 7 different accounts so I could get people to go on and we could take a screenshot of all the shiny people >.> (Except for the sin, who's shy and the necro who's just a weirdo..)

    Tal = any dual-ele sorc
    IK = IK barb
    Griz = Abbott
    Mav = Frostmaiden

    Those are the only 4 that I think are actually worth using in any defendable way. For the other three...

    Trang = Skelly/PN...not the best for the build but its what its mods are slated towards
    Aldur = Its the most generic set, mostly just stats/res/leech/ias/etc so I'd say a shapeshifter as it lacks the +skills for an ele or summoner
    Nats = Its the most defensive set, and again lacks the +skills for a trapper, mesh boots are not great for a kicker, so I guess a non-kicking MA sin? But even then you want +skills....maybe a summoner sin :)

    That's pretty much what I was thinking!! Wouldn't be the first time I made a themed account. ;)

    You could up the boots though to give you 69-118 kick damage which isn't bad. Not quite upped Gores, War Travs, or Shadow Dancers, but decent. (Nat's could really use some partial set bonuses!)

    Oh right, duh! I knew that at some point, but never been inclined to up a set-piece so that segment of my memory got over-written! ;) That mixed with this stupid cold zoning me out. :bored:
