    What character to build next?

    With the help of Clegaw this past weekend killing Hell Ancients, I completed my rebuilt Hammerdin and made Guardian last night. So my question is, what to build next? This is what I have built so far.

    Level 86 Summon based Necromancer
    Level 85 Fire Sorceress
    Level 84 Concentration Barbarian
    Level 81 Hammerdin
    Level 81 Lighting Fury Amazon
    Level 81 Wind Druid
    Level 79 Orb/Meteor Sorceress

    I am still working on an IK Barbarian but that should only take a couple of weeks to finish. What should I build next? Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    Definitely either a melee Pally, melee Assasin, or Bowazon.

    some melee Pally options:
    Tesladin
    Avenger
    Fanatic Zealot

    some melee Asn options:
    Pheonix Strike
    DTalon
    DTail

    Bowazon would probably be Freezing/Strafe,

    Freeze arrow zon. Good party member, that's for sure.

    Ever seen meteor + frozen arrow in action?

    I do like throw barbs also.

    Edit: Oh, and Terry, where's your enchantress?? Everyone has one of those don't they??!!
    My next character will probably be a FOH pally. Pvm or Pkk, not sure.

    What about the aura 'sanctuary' !
    I've always wanted to make a pally that used that aura, mainly because you never ever see anyone use it.

    Its a great aura to use anywhere, cos there are undead everywhere :p


    There was a neat trick posted on the dii.net main site, FotD/FotW/etc. regarding Sanctuary..

    If in Hell, there are Physical Immune undead, turn on Sanctuary and you'll be able to leech life/mana off them, although doing no damage!

    Handy, if you run out of mana while 'Vengeancing' or whatever :D

    Defiance Hammerdin!!!

    There are enuff pallys running around to get the arura, but I guess you are somewhat dependent on parties.

    PvM Charger.....i will make this if there is no reset soon.

    Terry, just say yess to melee and go for it! There are many melee builds that work very well in small games, its just the big ones where you start having issues, but with a decent group you can still contribute a lot.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. At one time I wanted to make a melee Paladin but changed my mind and rebuilt my Hammerdin instead. I think I'm going to go back and make that Fanatic Zealot after all. Thanks again.

    Good idea, I have one and he rocks.

    Zealous_Fanatic Level 90 <Retired>

    I soloed the entire game with him and he only really had problems with IM and dolls (as is the case with any melee char). He makes quite a tank and a great DC killer <occasionally comes out of retirement for these special occasions>

    I'm also having a lot of fun with a Dexazon. I'm just wondering how long she'll last before the Lag Beast gets her.

    Real Challenge

    Want a real challenge? Create a character that cannot use any mana. NONE. He/she lives in a world where magic does not exist (except in weapons). Obviously, Sorces and Necros are pointless, but Barbs and Zons could be done.

    Obviously, you would need a high damage weapon, and lots o life (no Battle Orders, cheater!). The Barb can use their mastery to pump damage and AR, they can use their Iron Skin to defense, Natural Resist, etc. Think of all the points you could save by not having to invest in Concentrate or Beserk!

    The Zon also has many passive skills they can use and pump by saving all those skill points.

    It seems to me that all your level 80 characters would get old. Try this out sometime, it sure is a challenge. Imagine telling your friends "yeah, my dude is level 84... and I have yet to use even 1 stinking point of mana!"

    Double swing and magic arrow use no mana at high levels. Thus, this is quite easy to achieve.

    As for Terry, I have an idea that I never tried out (too busy with other projects). Why not a Strafezon that uses Bloodraven's Charge. This way the zon can hire a might merc for better damage and still have good tanks from the revive charges (think about solo hell ancients).

    If you want to use a fanatic zealot, you can use an Azurewrath since so many people like the idea of sanctuary.

    well, some ideas i like are:

    WW Barb
    Bear Druid (with life spirit - sooo much life!! :) )

    and... my favorite *drum roll* .... Firewall Sorc!! :drool:
    but i see you made a meteor sorc... so you probly wont want a firewall one.

    No Mana? Ranger. Bow Pally or Throw pally if you want a sheild.
