What's up y'all? What builds are in these days? Hey guys! I haven't played D2 in several years, but when I did play I always loved making HC characters. I particularly enjoyed the thrill of low-level-dueling with say a throw-barb or an assassin. I'm sure that my account has been deleted due to inactivity, but I think I'm going to re-install d2 and play some HC Classic. Only bad part is that I have to get one of my characters through normal on softcore first : ( Anyways, I used to really like playing Necromancer's the most probably. I love a good ole bonemancer. But since this is going to be my first character, I think I want to make a sorc for MFing (cautiously.. lol). I don't think I've ever made a sorc in HC before, definitely not in Classic. I was wondering what builds are in these days with the new patches and all? I was thinking about going with one of the guides I read on here recently (although it was made almost 3 years ago..) and doing an orb/static/teleport sorc. http://diablo.incgamers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=542893 Although, I'm not quite sure what the point of not actually finishing the mephisto quest in hell is. Why is that important? Also, does anyone here play classic hardcore? Anyone want to convince to play LoD hardcore? Isn't LoD all clogged up with a bunch of bots and what-not? That's why I'm thinking about doing classic, but if it's not that way on HC... I might do LoD. Just thought I'd throw this out for discussion, and help/advice/experience would be greatly appreciated. I haven't played since 1.10 I think and I've been hearing about ad-bots and other stuff, so clue me in and what's new and going on with bnet these days.
