    Hey all,

    I like to play untwinked builds through hell. I've really only completed 2; Fishymancer and Frenzybarb(that last one was a true slog until I built the required runewords). I have experience with some other builds though such as Hammerdin and Meteor sorc.

    My question: What is a different/oddball build that you guys recommend that would be good for me to get my feet wet in the game. I don't mind a challenging build as long as it's rewarding. I'm looking forward to any suggestions.

    Hi,

    Some fun oddball builds:
    Melee enchantress
    Melee necro/thrower necro
    Rabis (with high ctc 'flee')
    Double throw barb
    Ranger

    Good luck with your projects

    Depends on what you call 'oddball' of course.

    Ranged Enchantress is fun, although you'll want a bow or xbow with explosive arrows / bolts, so you'll have to grind for that a bit.
    Rabies/Fury Druid is indeed quite fun.
    Hydra / Orb maybe isn't so different, but not that much used either, and Hydra is a very fun skill to use.

    Good luck !! O yes, and welcome back :).

    High Chance to catch flee's for the win

    I've always wanted to try a ranger, they seem fun.

    I'm not going to intro thread, I joined this forum before you did. o_O

    Go read my 13 years of posts if you're interested ;)

    Edit: Not trying to say I've posted consistently for 13 years but it's asinine to intro thread when I've been posting on and off here most of my adult life

    well it depends are you whether you are using rwm or not.

    assuming you are then the list is quite large as the sky is the limit in regards to flexibility due to gear selection, but assuming you aren't perhaps a daggermancer (meaning to do one one of these days). if you aren't into melee, the ol' reliable trappersin will not put you down.

    Thanks for the response. I always get a trapsin to act 2 or 3 and just give up. Not sure why I can't keep interest. Meleemancer or ranger will be something worth trying.

    I just finished the game with a FO/Hydra/CB Sorc and it was quite fun. I never found one monster we couldn’t bring down with a triple elemental attack combo.:D You should give that a whirl.

    I've always found proc-builds to be really fun. You can get a good high level frozen orb or nova from items, and then use a Kick-sin or Zeal to proc them very fast.

    I think Sorc, Zon, and Druid are my most underplayed classes

    Sorc and Druid are my least played, however these SPF tournaments have changed that somewhat when trying to work around the unique restrictions of each.
