ideas for noncookie cutter builds

does anyone have any ideas for noncookie cutter builds? i was thinking you could be a:

*arctic blast druid with frostwind
*inferno sorc with flamebellow
*blade fury sin wielding the highest dmging wep in the game
*armeggedon druid
*shockwave bear druid
*thorns pally
*spirit of barbs druid
*fire wall sorc
*telek sorc
*ice bolt, ice blast, glacial spike, sorc
*chilling armor sorc (kills with retaliation ice bolt)
*blaze sorc
*charge bolt sorc
* fire or ice bowzon
* fend/jab javazon
*valkyrie zon (sit right in town and let valk tg)
*grizzly druid (sit right in town and let beat tg)
* golem curser necro (curse enemies with IM then summon golem)
* all golem necro (all skills in golem skills)
* revive necro
*psn dagger necro
*corpse explode necro
*psn corpse explode necro
*Teeth necro
*conversion pally
*sacrifice pally

this is pretty much every skill that i never see in pvp that thought might be good. most probably arent (like blade fury even with ebotdtm or some gfg dmg wep) but they are 90% non cookie cutter builds

I think there are some sacrifice pala LLD's...

Btw, I think theres a glitch when amazon uses forstwind...it turns her invisible or something..I might be confusing something tho..

Sure these skills could technically allow you to beat the game albeit slowly. Arctic blast and inferno are bugged with there damage doing only about 1/3th the lcs listed damage. The massive inferno skill boost via flamebellow is subject to the os skill rule meaning it will cap out at +4. Still not a bad wep for a melee chanter sorc, though sorc's swing horriblely slow on weps like these


*blade fury sin wielding the highest dmging wep in the game
A ever popular class build , and almost all ma sins use BF situationally.
build here http://strategy.diabloii.net/news.php?id=565

*armeggedon druid - Capable of some serious damage and gets used on fire druids and even some shifter hybrids.
*shockwave bear druid - a meat and potato skill for any bear. No damage to speak of , but the stun is godly.

*thorns pally- doesnt really work well unless it's on minions and mercs. Due to monsters high level in proportion to your life, it's not as effective a skill as it used to be. In pvp one would need to have about 3X life of their opponent

*spirit of barbs druid ,
like thorns but less damage

*fire wall sorc , I still see alot of these in use , at least on hardcore mode. One of my first builds upon ladder to mf is a Frozen Orb/firewall sorc. Good stuff :)
*
telek sorc - yummy , what es using sorc doesnt max this?
*
ice bolt, ice blast, glacial spike, sorc - syngeries and used all the time in TPPK. BOO , the dreaded IB! I have made it a point not to trade ib ormus's I've found unless it's to a friend. Yes it's that common.

*chilling armor sorc (kills with retaliation ice bolt)- A handy skill, but never a primary killing spell.

*blaze sorc - This is a neat skill, and I dont see these around hardly ever.

*charge bolt sorc = A classic build and very powerful if geared properly
http://strategy.diabloii.net/news.php?id=560 Guide here

* fire or ice bowzon - Mag-a-zon. Not to common anymore, but still effective. Guide here http://strategy.diabloii.net/news.php?id=561

* fend/jab javazon , while not the most common build around, they really work great. Fend is easily as good a skill as say zeal or Fury with similar damage/ar numbers. Load on the 2 handed spear and go to town! Fend is thought to be buggy however if the zon utilizes d/a/e or doesnt position herself properly when attacking. I think the bug is overstated. I've guardian'd a hardcore Fend/Impale zon without much trouble.


*valkyrie zon (sit right in town and let valk tg) (eww I hate this style of "dueling" if you can call it that. town hugging, gold stealing nk punk! :wink:

*grizzly druid (sit right in town and let beat tg) , you see these often enough , called Hunters or towndump. Guides here

* golem curser necro (curse enemies with IM then summon golem) IM is like thorns and spirit of barbs. Great on paper, but not so effective in action. a build for a exceedingly patient person. however guide here

* all golem necro (all skills in golem skills)
If you think this is the build for you check out the golem tournament thread
http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=531406

* revive necro (common skill of all summoners or hybrids since it generally just needs 1 point + skill gear and a maxed skelly mastry. close to full power summoner on 25 points. how sweet is that?

*psn dagger necro , Staple necro build http://strategy.diabloii.net/news.php?id=582
*corpse explode necro - I max this on nearly all my necro's , among the best skills in the game :brainiac:

*psn corpse explode necro : http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=391526
*Teeth necro
http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=320645

*conversion pally- Handy utility skill . Dont know if I'd build around it, but with a pallies damage auras, the converts can put out damage comparable to a summoner's revive, they simply get less life, and have a lower duration. I am not sure I could have gotten my untwinked foh pally thru the game without this handy skill.

*sacrifice pally- called a martyr and at high level's these can pack some serious punch. I can 2 hit killmyself on my hardcore martyr if I hit the wrong thing, like a door or those catapults in a5. Life tap fixes the failings of the life loss. Guide here with a good link to another guide.

many of these arent intended to be pvp guides. I am sure on a few of them if you use better then avg gear and then are fairly good at dueling, you'll win some. But they would have a hard time holding the muster to any "real" dueler and build. This is an 8yr old game. Most of it has been done already.
