    I am new to this game and playing on the ladder us east, and am just trying to make a character that can easily solo through hell difficulty, and be practically godly. Not really concerned with PVP, just PVM. Right now I have a level 23 Sorceress, and was going for the meteorb build, however I was just wondering if there are any veterans out there who can tell me if there is a better class/build that is almighty when it comes to soloing hell.

    The worst, weakest character possible. Try to finish normal singleplayer with a throw potion paladin. Fun stuff......



    .... okay nvm it sucks ass ^_^.

    My favorite class has always been necs or zons.

    a hammerdin is good but can usually be godly if u got the gear. otherwise i'd consider a summon necro. he doesn't need any gear at all and can go through hell solo. though the bosses might mess u up cuz they do more dmg to minions

    My enigma trapsin does well anywhere in the game...but thats just me... Id suggest a barb..its alot cheaper than a hammerdin to be good, and more fun anyway...bo can get you way above the 3.5 k life thing......although if you ever do go pvp...prepare to get pwned....

    prepared to get pwned? why? are barbs bad or something? cuz im usually the one doing the pwning lol. i guess it really comes down to how good ur items are, since combat chars are gear oriented.

    Yes.

    And also a good Zon (Bowazon / Javazon) can be godly in solo playing even without godly gear.

    i had a skele necro, he was ace though normal and nightmare, but on hell... it was like he was level 11 again on normal... i was terrible... i had maxed out skele, skele mastery, revive and skele mage, with 10 summon resist, BANG! den of evil blitzed me...

    On my Paladin however, ONE, YES ONE of his hammers, can kill a fallen in 1 shot on hell... and maybe 2 or 3 to take down a Garguatan Beast, and they hurt at the Throne of Destruction.

    All mobs Immume to Magic all the Plague Bearer in act 2, are immume to Hammerdin Hammers...

    Of my chars, the Frenzy Barb with 75 resists has it the easiest. He may take a little longer but he only gets wasted when IM is casted on him.

    Dracs really help with the life tap.
