    strongest level 9-12 possible?

    :D Hello classical d2 folks! :D

    I am thinking about the strongest level 9 possible. i think the strongest out of the 5 non-xp characters? ( Pardon me, im very used to xpac. ) is the barbarian at level 9.
    He starts with those stats;

    str30
    dex25
    vit20
    ene10

    At act 2 normal, the ''supposed'' act a level 9 should be located, he would be limited at 40 ( 8x5 ) stat points. But he can be rushed to act 4 hell, to gain 15 additional stat points from the Lam Esen's Tome quest in each act 3, so that means he would have a maximum pool of 55 spendable stat points!

    Also from Act 3, there is the easy quest that gives you a 20hp bonus potion, giving you 60 free hp.

    From Act 1, 2 and 4, you get a total of 4 spendable skill points, 12 in total for each difficulty. You wouldn't be able to exceed 9 skill points per skill, i suppose.

    I really don't know about the gear? Cathan requires a clvl of 11, but Sigon is a good option, i think.
    Also, the strongest 1-handed axe would be the best choice for the baba if he is supposed to wear a shield. I've seen that this axe can allow 5 sockets, but is it really managable to put 5 gems in such an axe?

    i need help!!

    A barb or a pally would be your best bet for strongest lvl 9. Deaths is a good set if you can afford the requirments... Check the Guide sections and read the low lvl dueling guide!

    It's in the guide sticky. "JoeDamned's Fun LLD Guide", or something along those lines.

    ladder or non?

    if you play NL and have been around for a long time (and never lost accounts do to hack use or not using your accounts) you could still have old no lev req uniqs or old rares with the old lev req's.

    no lev req bonesnap (69 str 132 dmg)
    a barb using any attack
    a pal using charge or zeal

    how about a lev 1 necro with +6 skills (+7 if you use sigs shield)

    a lev 12 fireball sorc using
    tarn
    2 sojs
    magefist
    eye
    magic +3 fireball staff +SF +warmth

    or how about a shard/eyeless/fist for a caster setup

    how about a jav amz, jab or lightning strike or even Poison Javelin.

    just think of all the fun you can have with those old items...

    Tempus, think about all the level requirements on all those items you mentioned. IIRC magefist has a level requirement of around 24, SoJ even higher.

    thats why i asked if it was ladder or NL. people that have been around for a long time and never gave up on classic still have old items like that around.

    its one of the reasons why i start many of my chars/mules in classic. if i dont want to chant the chars i can use all my old items.

    all those old items also can make for a very strong low lev char

    I think my level 9 palladin (NOT charger!) would easily kill any class under level 12 (apart from charactes using prepatch bonesnaps).
    It's basically a smiter with max defense aura.

    As for level 12, if you dont consider chargers (1-2 hit KOs vs most classes), a healer-smiter seems to be really good (I think I killed Warlock's barb with him?)

    poison amazons dont work, since I have one (death's set reduces the damage)

    as for fireball sorcs, I was thinking about one, but I dont have the items

    Nokozan is level 10. That information can be gathered either from this very website, or from paying attention to 95% of the unique amulets ever identified :sad2:

    one has to develop/foster the mindset for LLD characters, and looking at the gear for same.

    it has only been recently that I have even thought of this thought train, so I normally don't even look at lvl req.

    when I have the laptop home, I can quite easily rush, and level a new character to hell act 4, and deep into the lvl 70s in one day if I choose, which would technically allow a new character to equip anything found in the game, so it hasn't been a priority to consider item level, like one must if one is building an LLD, or acquiring gear for same.

    thank you for the reply none the less :)

    I don't think my barb has been killed by a smiter. And I don't think you can outheal the mighty civerbs doubleswing, mainly cause of the sound it makes. The 'Wood on Skull' sound.

    You did manage to reduce my barb's life to zero with your charger and a truckload of mana potions. :)

    what kind of setup do you think would work best for a lev 12 sorc
    NL classic using pre lod items.

    +skill setup
    +3 spell for the attack (FB, Lightning, IceBlast)
    tarn
    eye
    magefist
    2 sojs
    treads or other 20-30% frw boots
    nightsmoke or good rare
    twitch or garb or good rare

    caster setup
    tarn
    caster amulet
    shard (20%)
    eyeless
    Magefist
    2 sojs or caster rings (depends on how much ias is needed)

    all life setup
    3 skull helm or 3 ruby helm (normal gems) 72 life
    anglic amulet
    2 anglic rings or 1 good rare
    bloodfist
    good life belt
    good life boots
    anglic plate to get the +1 from 3 set items or maybe something else
    weapon ?
    shield ?
    staff ?

    for all build a staff with +Frozen Armor or +Shiver Armor

    oh ias table for grand scepters + DBL swing
    0 ias 8 fpa
    5 ias 7.5 fpa
    14 ias 7 fpa
    26 ias 6.5 fpa
    44 ias 6 fpa
    72 ias 5.5 fpa
    125 ias 5 fpa
    26 and 44 can be had depends on lev and items
    i think a lev 9-12 could be very strong using
    2 scepters
    sigs helm/gloves or deaths gloves/belt
    twitch
    goldwrap
    Gtoe or treads
    anglic rings/amulet or eye and some rings

    but what about some of the other old uniqs like Blood Crescent or Skewer of Krintiz? too little dmg vs a good rare? even without a lev req?
