    Which character goes with Angelic Raiment?

    I'm trying to build a character themed around each set (or each one I have, anyway) and am trying to decide which direction to go with each one. Don't bother telling me these sets aren't very good. I'm aware of this. Which character class would be best for Angelic Raiment? If you have any suggestions about other sets, please shout them out.

    well the sig set i know is a good barbarian set, or maby pally...

    the angelic im not shure about, with the angelic to use the whole set you have to use the angelic weapon, which is not so good a weapon... maby a sorc could get away with it, what level are you trying to get them to hell or mid or what?

    They should be able to solo normal, which isn't a tall order as I once did that with an amazon wearing Infernal Tools on hardcore. Making it through nightmare would be nice. If the set includes a wapon, I'd like them to make use of it in some way, otherwise, I could just use a fishymancer for everything.

    If you want to character to actually use the set, then I'd look at melee characters. Since this seems to be theme-based, I'd play around with the huge damage to undead the set gives. (comparatively, I know)

    I'd make a Sacrifice paladin that uses the Sanctuary aura.

    20 Sacrifice
    20 Redemption (synergy)
    20 Sanctuary
    20 Cleansing (synergy)

    I think it would be interesting. Sure you won't be able to kill everything (actually, hardly anything) but you'll be the bane of undead in normal/nightmare. :thumbsup:

    Frost Zealot or Tesladin or a combo. Powerful enough to become patriarch.

    I voted Sorceress, because the name Angelic reminds me a cute Sorceress I've known in a previous life... :rolleyes: :grin:

    i agree with frosty, angela is more of a ladys name, but the mods for angelic are geared more tward the paladin side

    I voted barb, even if angelic is not a male name. Because of angelic's huge ar bonus

    It has a one-handed melee weapon. That excludes necros, sorcs, amazons, and druids (generally).
    I'll go with a dual-wielding double attack barb.

    It makes sense to be a Paladin, but would actually be effective as a Fire Claw Bear.

    If you think using something else than angelic sword it would be a melee char, but if not, then, i don't know

    A barb or paladin might survive in normal act 1 and 2, but then the crappy damage of the weapon becomes a problem.

    Later in the game it probably has to be a character who doesn't have to rely on the silly weapon, i.e. a caster :rolleyes: I guess a necromancer won't suffer too much from that low-level set. Perhaps there is also a build with lots of CB, but it will be tough to deal the last tiny bit of damage to deal the killing blow.

    The amulet and the ring (two rings, to be precise) on their own are very useful, however, because of their massive ar bonus. These are probably the only reason why anybody could have a chance to be effective when wearing the set. I guess an IK barb with an Angelic ammy and two rings can solo through all of the game, although he can probably do that as well with no rings and no ammy at all :laugh:

    I see that in the vote, druids, sin and zons are not popular. Druids maybe could be a nice class for what you just said, krischan. Druids have nice caster spells and they can melee with nice dmg

    Sorcis. They are the master race after all. Everything was designed with them in mind, but too many ppl whined and moaned, so they had to make some of them other-class specific.

    I agree with what's said earlier. The weapon is too low-dmg to be any damaging, however it is fast, and the rest of the set gives heaps of ar. Frostzealot or Tesladin ftw!
