Hi guys I'm hoping you can help me out.
I've been playing D2 on and off for about 3 years now. It comes in bursts often with months between playing then I get the urge and come back again.
First off I leveled a trapsin to level 85. Had a lot of fun but decided that was as far as i wanted ot take her so then i stopped. Just recently i made a LF/CS Amazon. Shes currently level 45 and cruising through Nightmare like a hot knife through butter (CS just rocks for boss killing).
However all this lightning based damage is getting a bit repetative. I'm wondering what to make thats a change of scenery.
A few things about the way I play I guess are in order. I dont have the facilities to mule items from one character to another so they all play untwinked and independantly. I also dont really go online. I tend to just play single player.
Also I never aim to get to level 99. Generally I stop in the mid to late 70s/early 80s. That usually works out around the end of Act1 Hell or just the end of Expansion Nightmare. Like i said i play D2 in bursts and that doesnt often allow for getting tha far into Hell. I just get bored =P.
So the couple of ideas I'm toying with are:
Posion based Necro. Bone based builds too arent out of the question. I would rather try and avoid a pure summoner based build though. Having 20 points in skele mastery for meat shields is cool but for some reason the idea of just relying on a mass of mobs to do my dirty work just doesnt do it for me.
Meteorb Sorc. Read a lot about them but never leveled one.
Any other type of Sorc that doesnt rely on lightning damage
So anyone got any thoughts on what woud work best around early hell/ late nightmare? Some builds shine much later than others. And also due to the unlikely event of me playing on hell much i wont get the best kit in the game.
Of course if i really enjoy it then i will go onto and play in hell. I just have a short attention span
Any thoughts would be most welcome.
