New to hardcore, playing untwinked My friend and I were getting bored with SC so we gave HC a shot. I made a frost zealot and he made a rabies druid and we leveled together until A4 norm, and a group of infernos took me out. Just playing that pally was enough to get me hooked on HC. So we start over, this time I make a fishymancer, he makes a martial arts assassin. This time we get to a2 NM. My friend is about 54 at this point when he runs into some pack of specials while I was afk for a second. Next thing I know I'm running to catch up and he gets killed. Soooo now we are starting over again, I may continue with the fishymancer once we get back to that level. Hes restarting with a pally, some type of fanaticism zealot. Could anyone recommend a build with good survivability that would have synergy with his char? I know the fishymancer would be great with amp damage and all the various CC curses, but in the mean time I need a fun and durable build to play with him. Thoughts?
