    Most overpowered builds

    Just for the heck of it, lets say what we think is the most overpowered build for each class, then the most overpowered overall. Assume that money is not an object, and that overpowered refers to their overall pve and pvm prowness, aka if something is just so damn good at pvp or kicks so much but at pvm it's still good.

    Amazon: I'd say a fully decked out lightning javazon. Charged strike flat out ENDS bosses, and fury + cows = madness

    Assassin: I'd say a WWsin, not 100% knowledgeable on high level sins though

    Necromancer: To me, this was between fishymancer (due to pvm) and bonemancer (pvp). Fishymancers can easily solo the game without a single piece of gear, and bonemancers can just wreck people with their 100% magical damage. I'll give the nod to fishymancer though, skeletons are just too nuts.

    Barbarian: I think they're called BvCs, the one all-encompassing build that covers just about everything a barbarian does.

    Paladin: Hammerdin, easily. Blessed hammer is the most stupidly powerful skill in the game.

    Sorceress: Lightning sorc, as their killing prowness is comparable to a Hammerdins.

    Druid: Hard to say, but I'll go with Windy Druid, as they're one of the most common pvp builds, and they get along fine in pve.

    Most overpowered class overall: Hammerdin for Paladins. Blessed hammer is just stupid, then in pvp you throw desync in there.

    EDIT: Wait, meant to post in community forum. My bad, don't hurt me : (

    Ehghhh .. I would say Blizzard sorcs are more lethal than light's ones.
    In /players 8 games light sorc just simply can't handle , meanwhile Blizz sorc can decimate a hole bunch of 4sses.


    I am glad you mentioned that Hammerdins are the most overpowerd killers of 'em all. Hammerdins don't have immunes in their way. Practicly, a full skilled charmed din can do hell without a merc.

    Re: Most overpowered builds

    Shhh :shhh:... Don't say that in front of my Lightning sorc, or she will toast you :badteeth:.

    Some numbers :
    - 30k+ max lightning damage
    - Full Telekinesis Energy Shield for survivability (I can run Nihlathak in P8 without a problem)
    - On top of that : +50% damage from gear and -35% monster resistance from gear
    - On top of that : Conviction aura from Infinity
    - ALL THIS at 200% FCR (last breakpoint for ALL sorceress skills)
    - 50% health of monsters instantly removed thanks to ultrafast Static Field
    - Ultrafast teleporting speed / repositionning

    Usually everything is dead before the Blizzard of the other sorceress kills anything :grin:.

    Note : I'm currently writting a guide for this Sorceress, I should be able to post it next month in the Sorceress section.

    Re: Most overpowered builds

    I would say the same thing about my sorc. She's a beast and can do p8 games with only some minor problems atm.

    31k dmg, but don't have all my skillers yet.
    117 fcr bp
    max block and 43% dr
    1,3k life
    infinity merc
    lower res by 25% (I think)

    When I'm done I will hopefully have about 37k dmg.

    Looking forward to the guide :thumbsup:

    Re: Most overpowered builds

    the fishymancer is not overpowered!

    Do you know what us summoning necromancers have had to go through to finally get something as good as the fishymancer?

    a fully pimped out summoner can own just about anything pvm... but really nearly any build can own in pvm if they have the highest end gear. Hammerdins can do it player 8 and kill everything quickly... wait I think there might be a couple monsters in act 3 they can't kill

    Re: Most overpowered builds

    You are right... about both. They can kill quickly in p8 games, but there is 1 monster they can't kill. Wailing Beast I think they are called in act 3 hell in those Ruined Temple things. Since they are not undead and are immune to magical hammers can't damage them :wink3:

    Re: Most overpowered builds

    What in the name of kokojambo has any dindin to do in Ruined temple ?

    It is a waste of talent to throw a godly dindin in the temple act 3, or in any area act 3 at all. You must look out for dins later in act 5 , very close to Baal minions where they can show some talents.

    Re: Most overpowered builds

    It is only for doing the Lam Essen's Tome quest, or... Well that's the only reason :laugh:

    And then he should along with a merc be able to tank them until someone can collect the Tome :hide:

    Re: Most overpowered builds

    Why would you waste time killing them when you can tank them for a few secs while someone take tp, picks up Tome and get out again? =p

    Ofc you can kill them while waiting for the other guy to get the Tome. But it's not needed >_>

    Why not just scare the death out of them with baba's howl, and no need to even touch'em ?

    Re: Most overpowered builds

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the +50% from gear on light/fire sorcs just add on to the mastery?

    So it's really a change from +~400 to +~450% (or whatever your numbers are) not a +50% onto the end damage after mastery?

    Wouldn't that make it +~10% to your end damage rather than +50%?

    Re: Most overpowered builds

    It adds with lightning mastery, so as you say in your example it goes from 400 to 450% more damage :thumbsup:
