noob wanting to start a melee pvp char

any melee chars out there that can kill casters? i currently have a Fireclaws bear, but i doubt he could do too good. so are there any pure melee guys out there that can contend with casters? thanks for info


is a kicker assassin a good magekiller?

charge paladins are insane against sorcs but are not exactly the best against hammerdins or necros.

the only real way to beat them is to have other casters b/c they can just tele around w/ enigma

or if your really skilled and can tank alot, go for ww barbs but hammerdins can still be really annoying

BvC barbs to be precise. Not just any old WW barb will be able to beat casters, BvC barbs are designed to face casters. They are generally dual wield, base str, near base dex (no block), reasonable fcr, teleporting WW barbs. The good ones make use of Leap to stunlock their targets before namelock WWing.

Chargers can be dangerous but are not reliable because of the bugginess of charge. Also, Necros, Hammerdins, and specifically Windies will all beat chargers most of the time. Max block also severely hurts this build.

Kickers if designed solely for caster killing (no block except claw block, all vita) can be very good caster killers. Ask Speederlander about these.

Ghost sins (WW sins) also can go toe to toe with just about any caster build.

Any barb can equip beast&arach and kill some casters, even with base leap. Of course a bvc-barb is better at casterkilling, that's obvious (it's in the name =)

Also, wwbarbs/sins eat chargers alive.

In the case you are poor, try a kicksin. The average build is really cheap and very effective vs casters, much more than any other char made for this purpose with the same (low) budget. If you can afford enigma , Beast and Botd (or Grief or Death), I say dual wielder WW barb would work fine, plus you can kill most of melee chars too.

You can also make a caster to kill casters
Nope, thats not allowed. Besides, you would only lower yourself to their level, killing casters with meleechars is much more humiliating =)
