    Something with a ranged attack that isn't item-dependent (if you're doing the standard Ironman format where you find all your items in-game). Sorceress or Javazon are good.

    ive just started VLLD today also, im making a tiger-strike sin, which to my understanding will work quite well :thumbsup:

    it will cost me a bit to set up tho, just because lld items seem crap and cheap, u will end up paying more than u think

    He's referring to vlld in terms of an Iron Man competition which means he will only be able to use the gear he finds while leveling to 9. If I'm not mistaken, TS sins aren't terribly powerful without some pretty nice gear. You're certainly not going to be finding max jewels while leveling.

    i'm sure those better people above are more right than i am, but i have done something along the lines of Ironman and surprisingly, i found my double swing barb killed everyone

    this and a smiter/sacadin are the best lvl 9. only 1 pt in smite to stun enemies, then sac sac, smite. you can also get an amp weapon and smite until u amp then sac sac death.

    Perhaps you guys can't read, he said this is for an "Ironman" event. That means he doesn't get to collect any gear prior to the tournament.

    - You make a new character, all participants enter a new game.
    - All players level up to 9, using only the gear they find.
    - They then duel.

    Any posts along the lines of "With the right gear, this build is good" or "The best vlld lvl 9 dueler is <build> with the proper gear" are pointless.

    Which means you need a char that doesnt rely on equipment that badly.

    - Holy fire paladin
    - poison jav (with perhaps a bow on switch that does cold dmg)
    - a sorc (iirc, fire works the best at low lvls)

    It all depends on how good your opponent is, but you can make a double swing barb or a bash barb work extremely well too

    you wont find any crystal swords leveling to 9 from scratch, and if you did, which you wont, they wont have 6 sockets. Good luck finding low +max jewels, its unlikely you will, and you shouldnt count on them, if you DO luck out, it will be very low max anyway, probably 3-5 at most.

    You'll be lucky to have 3 chipped rubies, nevermind 3 flawed.

    This is a decent "very cheap" dueler, but its not an ironman build.

    And not elight, a TS sin is not your best option for an ironman, they are great lvl9 twinked duelers IMO, but they dont work too well for ironman's, as they are gear dependant to be effective.
