Most powerful pvp char?

Well, i've never really played classic much online but my friend has and he told me a few things. Since classic has an a lot less items than expansion (no runewords, high end uniques, charms, etc.) is there actually a most powerful pvp char? I know, there isnt really a straight answer for this. Obviously, it will probably boil down to a a few chars.

So my question is, what do you think is the most power pvp char/build?

My friend's choice is bone necro. Why? b/c no one is immune to your bone spirits and bone wall/cage come really handy in classic where only sorcs can tele. Iron maiden also comes extremely handy in combination w/ bone way against melee chars.

Of course other possible candidates are sorcs, hammerdins, and maybe others. So what do you guys think?

a 110 fcr fire sorc is pretty damn strong at pvp. Consideirng there is no absorb in classic and u can manuvere faster than anyone else it does pretty well. Even when my sorc duels opponents who have es/high life and wear hotspurs i win by playing very defensively. Against an opponent w/ 75 or below fire resist and low fhr (a lot of ppl neglect fhr) i just teleport on top and spam fballs till they die. Being stunned they cant defend themselves or run away.

a godly Frenzy barb pretty much owns all except other barbs. Barbs are pretty much the only decenty melee chars on classic. A few zealots now and then but their mainly 4 style.

I would have to say BVA barbs can do well the most consistently.
Just use Naga/BH along with Twitch and Swordback for melee chars, and a nice 2handed weapon with rattlecage/hawkmail for casters. And of course, lots in Increase Speed

Its always the speed that gets them ;)

Agreed. But bonemancers, hammerdins, orbers, CSers, lots of builds do well. If I had to pick one from each class, I'd go with:
1) BvA mentioned above
2) Hammerdin = charge
3) Fireball
4) CS Java
5) Bonemancer

Oh you must mean "hammerdin"
Din is slang for Paladin or Hammerdin in classic. It's heard everywhere. DvD= Din vs Din, not Druid v Druid (which could easily be confused)

1) Bone necro
2) Foher
3) Good hammerdin who knows how to desync
4) Orb sorc

All the above will beat a BvA fairly easily.

I vote Bone necro. The sorcs have the problem that sum 1 have focus their gear (3 soc sheild :eek: ) and make you do almost no damage against them as do FoHers. Its hard to kill a ranged char with a hammeradin.

Yeah back in 1.09 I didnt really think of 3 p saps in a shield as really usefull and i didnt see anyone with that either....bummer. Now pretty much every single barb does that.... ok fine im exagerating...but neway alot do.

Orb sorc > Bone necro
any day

Thats due to the fact that most .09 sorcs used orb + thunderstorm. And orb did about 40% less damage. Also i believe they changed how cold mastery worked in 1.10. Now 99% of sorcs are single element so its worth it to just stack all resists into one element.

Yes, i must agree that orb sorcs PWN bone necros. I mean, With my BM orber, I can stack on so much magic resist that their main source of damage is completely anulled; My orb DOESNT get absorbed by the bonewalls they hide in; Their attacks DONT kill me in 7 hits; Their attacks DONT Stun me; And it DOESNT take 15 perfect orbs to kill them; Oh, and i DONT have a delay time in between casting orb and teleporting, so cant get stunned by their NON-TRACKING attacks.
