    Whatever you enjoy playing. Now don't take this the wrong way, but you're gonna die any way (odds on) - so you may as well enjoy it while you can.

    Play conservatively...
    Don't trust people...
    Enjoy yourself...

    Cheers...


    Actually, play co-op ... and after a while try to build up your friend base.

    summon necro or elemental druid would both be pretty safe for a starting character, but really any character can easily tag along in pub runs and baals until they are big enough for mf'ing

    so i'd suggest someone who could run hell eldritch or shenk easily (meph or andy too but i'd assume you'd want some special gear for that)

    Trapsin or Skelemancer are probably the best two choices, they need the least gear and are among the safest...
    A tank sorc is probably the safest, but they need more in items to keep energy base while keeping the mana up.

    That's just my opinion.

    Mali, SO NEGATIVE!

    Welcome to HC Ladder, don't play with any Pallys or Assassins who ask to hit you once.

    On a side note, I just can't seem to trade off my Kukos. Nobody seems to like playing bowazon anymore. I'm thinking of making a hunter-zon and just doing the lame PK thing. You know, the ol' join the Act 2 and 3 games and going hunting for lower level ears. Damage may not be that impressive, but then again, I seem to be on a roll with the Fine and Sharp GCs while trying to cube skill charms so I don't forsee too much trouble, except from chargers.

    Aaagh. I didn't MEAN it as negative, and coming from one of the very people that'll be out there trying to kill you ;) ...

    Let's have a look at what I said:
    Yes, I did say he was gonna die... but, that too is true. And it (hopefully) will be a learning experience for him.


    cheers
