The Most Unlikely D2 Builds

People can offer one up for each class I was thinking, but being a fan of "impossible" and challenging builds, I was considering trying to take a few untwinked HC characters through hell baal. I tried to come up with the most broke-ass, no hope builds I could but wanted some suggestions.

Quick Note: I dont mean entirely impossible/hopeless builds like a heal-only pally who cant kill. I need to be able to fight through the game, and will take advantage of mercs and whatnot.

- Holy Fire paladin
- Pure golemancer
- Valkazon?

Suggestions wanted!

Where should I begin?... :D

- Dentist (Teeth Necromancer)
- Physic Hammer Assassin
- Mojomancer (Curses Only)
- Hydra Sorceress
- Singer

Just a few ;)

Hmmm, how about...

*any damage returned based build (thorns, IM, etc)
*titan melee two hander sorceress
*Dragon Flight assasin (just becuase it'd be annoying as hell to play)
*Arctic Blast/poison creeper druid
*bowbarb
*Vampiric Necro (lifetap and melee - actually, that sounds kind of cool...)
*2 handed Holy Fire axe paladin
*puppetmistress amazon - Valk, and summon charges from items

Passive barb (mastery tab only). I know it's possible because Uzziah is doing it right now, but damn that would be tough.

FYI, I read somewhere in the FAQ that someone took a curse-only necro to Hell Ancients - only they had a better name for the class (IMO): sailor.

I kind of like the idea of a zerker/smite pally also, but then you'd have to count on finding the runes for 'Passion' and something to put them in...and I don't know if that's really the kind of build you're looking for anyway.

A martyr is much harder than a Holy Fire paladin (although both are doable)

Mojomancers are hard as hell, but once again doable.

How about a Bouncer (No Weapon Barb who uses Bash)

Building a Dentist at the moment will let you know how it goes....

Um, yeah. I guess so. More of a "my uber-twinked merc can pwn you all - oh, and I'll fire some hammers at you too" build.

I've not heard of a Dentist making it through the game in 1.10. That would be amazing.

I'd like to see a hydra sorceress (I agree with Kool)
 
very similar to the P-hammer sin what about a tele-k sorc using ONLY tele-k
could use nrgy sheild, also other passive sorc skills ie warmth other mastrys
could also use t-storm cause you cant actually choose what it hits
also the cold armor skills

That would be an EXTREMELY safe build. Dunno whether you could kill much though.

Telekenesis would be even worse than Psychic Hammer.

There are tons more lightning immunes than there are Magic Immunes, not to mention the damage would be only a couple hundred at best.

There are such things as "Crazy seemingly impossible builds" and "Simply impossible builds"

Psychic Hammer Sin and Telekenesis Sorc are two of these "Simply impossible builds".


EDIT:
As far as mojomancer goes, I think jiansonz needs to retry the journeys of Mike and Isolide. :p

naaa just very very very very hard to do tele-k sorc would be extremely safe build and could get damage alternate dmg from the cold armors+cm

you could probbably get at least a couple hundred damage from tele-k when its maxed and + the Lightning mastry
i would be very expensive to make but with lots ofsorc lit charms and semi decent gear it could be prett powerfull

After 10 to all skills and 10 to lightning skills(level 40) Telekenesis would only do <250 damage.

That's with level 40 mastery.

Not viable at all.
