A bomberzin can be fun.
Fireblast maxed out with lots of synergies and some plus skills does a lot of damage. Outfit your merc well and you can kill nonfire immunes quickly.
And then use death trap to explode corpses.
And shock web is spammable as well.

Dancers are fantastically viable even untwinked. That's what I'll be starting with.

Thanks, but I thought they weren't very popular, I've only seen trapsins...

The beauty of hybrids is that you only need 1 skill in the MA tree to make an effective kicker. And you don't even need to max it. My dancers are basically light trappers with 10-20 points in DTalon. So you can still just about max the lightning trap tree.

Pure PvM light trappers work quite well. I made one in HC (and promptly died at lvl59) and found myself very effective right through NM. The fact that there are few LI monsters in NM helps a lot as well (Only flying scimitars, lightning towers and the guest monter in A5 "Damned"). It's possible to just shop decent claws for this build and fade helps to cover your resists and gives you some DR which few others will have early in the ladder.

Of course with the abundance of sorcs, a vengeance pally can have a lot of potential too. Providing the conviction aura that many cookie-cutter builds rely on can carry you and your party through hell difficulty. Unfortunately, you'll find they're not so good for item finding (solo).
