In a world without Necromancers....

This is quite the scary thought. But lets face it, what if the smart half of Blizzard never thought to incorperate our pasty raiser of the dead? What character class would you play?

I would play as the assassin, just because I find them quite fun. Not the typical trapassin dammit! An Assassin ;)

well there are alot of classes I like

claw/claw MA assassins were fun
frenzy barbs
fury werewolf
vindi paladin
meteor sorc
bowzon

trapsins are ok, not terribly fun, necromancer is the one class that whenever I'm playing as a different class I miss being a necro

THEY REMOVED THE CHRISTMAS SMILEYS!!!!!!!!

It is a scary thought...D2 without the Necro. :scared:

Amazons are not my cup of tee. The "holier-than-thou" feel of the Paladin makes me sick.
The other classes have a chance. It would have probably been:

- WarSorc
- Rancid Dog
- Claw/Claw MA Assassin
- Blender
- Thrower
- Frenzy Barb

The Barbs have nice War Cries which look a bit like curses.

Barb, period. When I aint playing a Necro, its barbarian killin' time.

Currently my barbs outnumber my necros, and I've built 1 style of all other classes, except assassins, which I just never tried.

Paly=1
Zon=1
Assassin=0
Druid=1
Sorc=1
Necro=4
Barb=5

No COMMANDO??? :hanky:

Then I would be going back to my Dins and I do oh so enjoy my MA assassin.

I like the raw feeling of power of Paladns and the 1.09 PvP was great and I miss it.

I am experimenting with druids. They are warming up to me a bit, though I miss my 1.09 elementalist. Nothing like killing melee chars by them chasing me with Armageddon on. :lol:

I miss my titan barbs. I have an Iron Barb... he was fun, good tank, but not my fave.

I have a spear zon yet to be finished.

I want a cold sorc to mf.

Rest are necros:
Summoner or 2
Commando
Bone *Sold*
Venomancer

Females are okay. I don't like seeing a buff, football player-looking female. But the scantily-clad, busty heroines are good.... wearing something like...

If the Necro didn't exist, I'd go with another caster. Either the Druid or the Sorceress. I never really liked frontliners and while archers are good, they don't do a lot of damage like casters.

If there were no Necros, I'd go with a Bowazon any day...my Strafezon was abosultely my favorite char til I started my Bonemancer some days ago, and she still is a favorite, though she now shares that spot at the top. She can run any area of the game and come out with nary a scratch on'er.

I've tried 3 sorcs so far and while I enjoy the potential for massive damage, the're far too fragile, and waaaaay too item dependant. Get lagged for a second too long, or tp into some Gloams who are just settling down for tea and bam...she's a goner. Her main appeal is that she can retrieve her body(s) buff naked...if she can survive the little love tap by the devilkin who killed her by accidentally holding his torch too close.

Barbs are horrible in 1.10...with the Conc build being the exception...but who wants to go through 3 difficulties of D2 one monster at a time? Yikes! Darling I love you but gimmie Park Avenue...or at least a multi-target kill skill. Like CE :)

Hammerdins and Zealots...I think I see them go down in hell Baal runs more than any other chars combined. Another char class with way too much dependance on l33t gear.

PS/MA Sins...ah, my second favorite, and best meleer IMHO...can dish out huge amounts of phys damage, and with PS synergies pumped right, can dish out tons of elemental damage as well. Blocks elemental attacks, has her own version of Dim Vision, CE and Leap Attack. Trapsins are almost as boring as a Maxed FO sorc. Ech. +Traps GC for sale...!

Druids...can' really comment, since I haven't played one in 1.10 yet...though from what I've seen, I'm liking the Wind Druid setup...but somehow they seem like a wannabe Nec...so why not go with the better model? :)

Anyways...this is all my extremely biased opinions...everyone's mileage may vary... :)

My Meleemancer has to go through all three Acts killing one monster at a time. It is fun!

If I had to pick, I would go either Drood, or an Assassin Trapper(was my favorite in 1.09). Or just retire from Diablo(until 3), and try something like Everquest or Dugeon Seige (never played it before).

Infidel!!!!!!!!!!!

anyhow, my time is still split between league Mechwarrior 4 Mercs, and Diablo. If I quit one of them I'd probably play other stuff like I used to. Madden 2k4 for the Gamecube is my current distraction.

eh, Madden 2004 has been bugging me, the trajectory of the passes seems to low and the QBs seem incapable of throwing fades or leading their receivers or throwing based on the route

I can deal with that, the insane amount of interceptions is whats pissing me off. I had to tweak the AI for both sides to lower the number so I stopped getting 5-8 INT's a game.

Please elaborate on how playing a Necro has made your penis six inches shorter.
