    The best solo melee builds in HC?

    As my past solo chars have all been kinda kill-them-all-from-a-screen-away-characters (sorks, amazons, trappers and such) I've started longing for getting up close and slaying them monsters the way they are supposed to be slain :) Are there actually any builds that can kill effectively with at least two types of damage?

    Please, share your experiences here if you have done a mostly solo-based melee char who actually kills effectively, or if you've heard of one :) no matter if expensive or low budget, I just want to know about any true 1.10 melee guardians :thumbsup:

    My favorite Melee character is : Vengeance Paladin, he is relatively cheap and has all types of damage.

    I love my frost zealot, awesome cold damage plus he slows everything within like 22 yards. They can do pretty well with decent gear, so it might be something to look into.

    ww barbs with 1 pt into zerk in general, druids with decrepify merc (hey they take away physical immune :)), as for pallies I'd lean toward zealot with 1 pt into vengeance or frost zealot. TS/dtail assns work nicely just hafta find a non pi monster to release on when there are pi's around. Dtalon with max venom works nice as well. So many builds to choose from...

    I got a gimmershred zealer to ancients solo, throwing my way through areas with IM isn't technically melee but you need to do it somehow. Convic for PIs and bosses that my AR couldn't handle, Fanat otherwise.

    This was with fairly bad gear too (Gris's plate, Rhyme...)

    I rather like my Conc Baba. If you make proper use of the warcries you can have a lot of fun. You do need to lay your hands on a big hurty stick though.

    Use Beserk for the PI and you're sorted.

    Holy freeze pallys are one of your best bets...combined with decrep you have some massive slow. Get 10x offensive skillers and you'll have a killer radius :) Use hoz and that unique mighty scepter with 1-2 sockets and 1-3 pally skills and ias, put some shaels in and start zealing.

    Grief/upped hoz > every god-damned thing you can think of making melee.

    Personally, my favorite melee build is the Holy Shocker.
