    Noob here. wants protips

    I had played a few years ago with a junk bowazon and was attempting to make a frozenorb sorc and had a nice guide from here for it. That computer dies and fast forward to now where im starting fresh. No twinked characters. no gear period. And i want to make either an amazon or a Hammerdin and start getting some gear for the future sorc ill be making so i can get into trading again.

    Anyone remember the amazing sorc guide with all the teleport and fcr and block rate stuff since i dont remember any of it?

    and any tips on whether an amazon or a hammerdin/zealot would be better to start with?

    thanks for your time.

    Go for a hammerdin if you have no gear (dual spirit + stealth is enough). You won't go very far with a bow-ama without descent bow/arbalest. If you decide to create an amazon, make a java - it's much more powerful and requires much less gear to be really descent.

    All of the mentioned classes are decent MFers untwinked. You could use a Fishyzon, the mentioned Hammerdin and I think this is the guide you are looking for when it comes to the sorceress.

    You should choose whichever you find the most fun, although I`m sure the Sorceress will find the most items given a set time frame:) Both the Hammerdin and Fishyzon are very solid area runners, so if you like doing that instead of killing Mephisto and Pindleskin over and over, they are definately an option.

    You can also re-spec the sorceress into a Blizzard Sorceress when you have enough wealth and start hitting Ancient Tunnels and Mephisto/Pindle more effectively. The world is yours:)

    So cruel being on the spf, where you can shut a man up for two years just by saying:

    RTFM

    Three words when you want a start on your item pool: Hell , Mephisto and Blizzard.

    Harmony bow is ridiculously easy to make and you can make the word in several bows as you progress. I am not saying that a bowzon will have easy time untwinked, but it is definately not because of a lack of weapon.

    Be aware that 1.13 has greatly changed the effectiveness of Blessed Hammer. Hammerdins aren't the end-all-and-be-all that that they once were.
