Neumein's HC Sept-Thingy -- Progress + Q/A

Haven't decided on all my characters yet, but I do have a couple started, and a couple ideas for the others. Here's what I was thinking;


Name: PackLeader
Build: Bow/Javelin Hunter
Notes: Bow seems a natural choice, wonder how I'll go obtaining reasonable bows as I go along though. On switch is a Javelin/Shield, for resistances/block, yet still allows me to put out _some_ damage.

Name: BlackAvatar
Build: Fishymancer
Notes: Just your bog-standard Fishy. I'll use him to get a feel for HC, and maybe pile some MF on him, and run pits or something. We'll see.

{Need ideas}

Trapper seems the obvious choice for untwinked play, but I want to spice it up a bit. Maybe Trap/DTail? Trap/DTalon? Getting good boots seems to the main problem when playing an untwinked kicker. I might make a theme of this one, and only craft the boots she uses (barring the low levels, of course)

Leaning toward a Spammerdin, for their relative safety, but are also relatively cheap to outfit, compared to other casters. Or for shear adrenaline, I might also look at a Charger. Big numbers are pretty :cool:

Probably go with a LitFury-based build for it's ability to run cows, but only once I use my Sorc/Necro to get some (semi-decent) loot.

Most likely going Lightning/Chain Lit/Frozen Orb, so I can run Countess. Might also see how she goes at Pindle or something. I don't really like Sorceresses to much, apart from my Hydra/Orber, who is in my top three characters of all time. Actually, given Hydra's HC-friendly aspects, it seems like a good build. I'll work on it.

Fishy's Warcry/Zerker seems good, might read up on it tonight. I want to have at least one half-decent Melee' char in my HC Sept, might as well be the class who's best suited to it :wink3:

That's where I stand so far. Any input on current/future characters is always welcome, and when I can work out how to format this stupid table, (or find a suitable one to, ahem, draw inspiration from) I'll throw one in to keep my progress updated.

Pure light zon! And why wait, she'll knock off hell easier than any of your other chars.
