    Items worth creating a new char/build around

    That should be interesting.

    The meaning is this: i don't like melee, as my most beloved chars are casters, i Patted/Matted a hammerdin, Meteorb and Fishymancer. ( i know - cheesy and coockiecutterish ). I have Patted a Frostzealot and didn't enjoy it that much ( even though it was my first Pat ).

    But today i have found Grandfather and am thinking about making a barb ( is it even right? ). Had it happen to you? You find that unique ( or the rune to make a runeword ) and now you just can not afford not to make a char around it?

    So, basically, there are two parts to the question:

    1. What unique/rune-runeword made you to build around it a new char?

    2. What items, in your opinion, are worthy and demanding to make what char around?

    You see? Now my dilemma is doubled after that damn Grandfather... :)

    Not that big as FB's zod dilemma, but nonetheless.

    NOTE: this thread was not made for you to say what I should do with those, rather - have you ever been or hope to be in that situation... :D

    I recently found a buriza (cheesy-yes, powerful-yes), which would be fantastic on a freezing arrow zon. I love the prospect of that overlapping freezing radius for close monsters. Maybe a little GA or Strafe to back it up.

    But, I already have a ton of other chars on my list-to-do, so it may be a while before I get to her.

    I thought a fun char would be one that has a bunch of % to cast X gear and hit really fast. Watch the fireworks go off.

    I never build characters around certain item(s). I build my characters around skills and then check, what gear would fit them

    Themed builds I would make other way around. Like Blood Raven's Charge unique bow...I have idea about making a zon using as many necro spells as possible :)

    I go the other way around. I make the build first, then I see what items that character finds, and I pick and choose as best as I can. I can aim for and manipulate certain item types, but nothing is certain. That´s what appeals to me about D2. If I knew what I would be using later, I would not have nearly as much fun.

    Silence crusader bow for strafer.

    Arioc's needle on a Spearadin

    Any build that is build around a class specific set. Or any set for that matter. :p

    I can only think of one item that made me build a new char around it, and that would be an IK armor, I'll let you know if it happens again :p

    Chaos claw...I know I sound like a broken record.

    This opens a whole new skill/way of engaging the enemy to the assassin. I'll probably find out that they aren't so hot for PvM, knowing my luck.

    The wolfbarb sounds interesting too, I'm gonna go check the barb forum for info on that.

    edit - just read wolfbarb guide...written for bnet as usual. Anyone in SP tried one? without warcries seems like crowd control could be a problem.

    Well, I would've made these characters anyway but these items really made them "shine":

    Titan's -> LFzon

    WWS -> Strafe/Witchyzon

    Death's Fathom -> Blizzsorc

    Death's Web -> Venomancer

    IK Set -> WW Barb

    Fleshripper -> Daggerzon

    (300%ED) Ribcracker -> Staffzealot


    Now I'm waiting for a GF to make an old skool WW Barb. Also going to build a M'avina's Zon some day. Probably even more of those Class specific Set based characters in the future.

    I've only built my character around an item once, and that was when I finally found my first Stormshield... Then I made...I'm not sure what she's called, but I called her a Tankazon. A javelin amazon with max block, max % damage reduction, max resists, max dodge/evade/avoid and as much MDR/PDR as possible...she was very cool.

    Beast seems like a very cool weapon allowing anyone to turn into a werebear...that's so awesome, I especially like the Weresin because she can attack insanely fast, 3 frame attack I think, gotta love that. So many possibilities with it.

    i'm eventually going to get around to making an impalazon using the impaler. crappy unused weapon + crappy unused skill = hours of fun.

    I found a WF not too long after I started playing SP, hence I made a zon built specifically around that bow
