new to hardcore some pointers please

I am softcore player but I want something more haha. This game seems so much more intense on hardcore so iv decided to convert for good. If im playing the game i only want to play hardcore. SO back to me asking for help hehe. I was wondering is it possible to beat the game normal through hell by yourself with a certain character and build? If so can someone please leave me the build or direct me to a build that can do this.

Re: new to hardcore some pointers please

Is there a specific class you prefer?

The safest (my opinion, though widely accepted) builds for each class are:

Summon Necro http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=660999 has a nice overview of the options, many similar posts recently

Lightning Trap Assassin (Fireblast or not, both are viable)

Orb/TK Sorceress http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=557123 is Socialism's guide to the build, all you ever needed to know and then some

Hammerdin (your classic overpowered monstrosity)

Lightning Javazon (can also look into hybrid, though for party play straight damage is the way to go imho)

FireClaws Druid http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=633745
Wind Druid is also viable untwinked in hardcore

For Barbarians, you can easily use any attack you want. Frenzy, Zerk, Concentration are all strong options, and even throw is doable. I personally prefer Whirlwind with a shield, but as long as you max BO/Shout you can do whatever you want.

Give us some direction on preferred class and what realm you're looking into and we'll give you all the info you need to make Hardcore enjoyable for you.

Cheers

Thanks so much
I prefer to play barbs and cold/lite sorcs. But i dont have any friends to help me out so i wanna be able to beat the game solo without making a necro (i hate summoning)
So can any of those solo the game without having to have great armor and such. Is it even possible to do all the acts normal/through hell without help or little help at all.
