    IMO, a well equiped barb with maxed hell resist should easily do the job.

    My firend and I run DC occasionally, and although my skelemancer doesn't do much work his IK barb beats his skull in.

    Against DC I would say a barb is your best choice.

    I'd say anything with loads of CB...so if a DT sin can get to him..she should do fine...then again, DC might just fry her :lol:

    Any character who can put this on their merc:

    Hone sudan
    Guilliams Face
    Rattlecage

    Can you say 105% crushing blow?

    Then hold any 1-hand weapon with prevent monster heal (you can buy javs in act5 hell for this from a vendor).

    In 1-5 minutes you will have a anihilus charm.

    Of course I have a battle order barb standing by to give my javazon/merc/valk high level BO. So if you don't have a second CD key, then a battle order barb with max resists and prevent monster heal should do nicely. On switch a life-tap wand is nice. The key is getting max crushing blow on the merc.

    Any rapid hitting melee character with reasonable crushing blow, and some prevent heal or open wounds, poison...etc can take him.

    I finally got a chance to try my Talon Sin on him and she is only using Gulliams for crushing. The Mecr has some prevent Heal, and she kick that punk into the ground.

    You dont need 100% CB.

    My Hammerdin with solid gear takes him just fine also as well as my IK Barb.

    There is no secret to killing him, it is rather simple with the right stuff and near impossible without it!

    I hate to keep repeating myself, but:

    Frozen Orb Sorc
    Maxed Synergy
    Maxed Cold Mastery
    4-5 Cold charms
    Death's Fathom
    Nightshade

    Will bring him down in no time at all.

    Not everyone has 4-5 Cold charms or the means to get them.

    I can't vouch for all classes but I can wipe DC out with no risk (except for lagging out) using my zealot. Having 90% res (from GA), 75% block and cold/fire absorb from Raven/Dwarf. I only have 15% CB and DS from my Goreriders but I leech like crazy from other equip. Whatever damage he does is completely recovered on the next batch of swings...never saw my ball drop more than a quarter and it was replentished within a sec. Took him down in 3 min just two nights ago.

    Oh, and this is without merc help (he has MF gear on and dies real quick).
