    Hey all, long time no see.

    Was in a bit of a video game crisis, wasn't playing anything worth while, so I decided to fire up ol' Diablo. I'm glad to see so many familiar faces still hanging around here, and also excited to get to know the new ones.

    D2 Plans: I'm hoping to grind to 98 or something wild on a character. I haven't decided which just yet, but I'm leaning towards a hammerdin.(As I don't have too many CS runs under my belt, and they seem somewhat new/fun.) I'm also hoping to do a bit of MF. I think my grail was somewhere in the Grail -4 area, so hopefully I can chip away at that.

    I've done a Blizz sorc, and all the usual MF builds. Was thinking a frost nova AT sorc sounded kinda fun. What do you guys think? What's a fun MF character you'd recommend?

    Cheers

    Could have just played SF with your brother, no? No?!

    For a MF character, I'd recommend a Tomb Wand-wielding, Arctic Blast Druid to run /P8 Hell Baals (with all spare points sunk in different Vines). Can't go wrong with that.

    lololol SF is for chumps... it should be here Tuesday, you got anything going on?

    MF druid? Hopefully a druid expert will come out of the woodwork and verify that this build works. It looks good on paper though.

    Well, I was going to suggest gaming with your brother, but it seems he wants you to spend alot, and I mean ALOT of time on Diablo 2, so I guess you might as well enjoy it. If you can fit it in around getting that Arctic Blast Druid to 98, you should probably do either the Frost Nova (or FNova/LightNova, which is also good) or pure Glacial Spike AT runners, both of which have the maareek seal of approval as fun, and not even that terrible, AT runners. Or you can always make a poison necro and run the Pits, but then you don't get to drop ice cold burns on family, and honestly, what is life without that?

    Edit:
    Not only are they brothers, but they both have terrible taste in who to let help them pick computer parts. Though hopefully they've improved in that regard...

    Welcome back!

    Fun MF builds?
    -PNova Necro in the Pits
    -Fissure Drood in the Ancient Tunnels
    -Any Shining Force themed character would likely excel, I'd start there. Kiwi gets my vote.

    I was thinking something like sub 2min /p8 Baals, you know - nothing too crazy.

    Sucker still purrs like a crop duster, and I love it.

    I don't know if the missing 'r' was intentional, but that's what I've always called him.

    @Liquid_Evil I didn't even notice that, not intentional, but a happy accident!

    (Now don't tell me that you or your brother were a happy accident? Or is that his nickname for you?)

    Welcome back Zylo.

    Surely most fun MF character is the one that finds the best items? o_O

    ...the Liquid Evil and Zylo revelation makes me wonder whom else knows other forumites in the real world.
