    Okay, so since I've given my FF themed sept very little attention (I swear I'll get around to it!) I wanted to make an easier to attain goal, one which i've already started and I don't feel bad about twinking (too late!).

    Basically, I want a super unique themed sept, and have already begun some of the characters (or finished!) such as Coldcrow, Bremmsparkfist, and the in-progress Pindleskin.

    Someone suggested before that a sorceress would make a good Mephisto using charged bolt, frost nova, and (my own suggestion) ice blast, for the 'orb of death'.
    I honestly don't have many other ideas aside from Nihlathak which is going to be awful but i'm doing it (frostwind wielding golemancer+CE).

    So I need a suggestion for
    Sorc
    Barb (an ancients I guess? Sort of overdone?)
    Sin
    Druid (vomits)

    !! :)

    This is HC.

    You could also create an Arctic Blast Druid using Corpsemourn as Nihlathak and a bow-wielding commander necromancer resembling Blood Raven. Too bad he can't use Blood Raven's Charge.

    I vote for the corpsemourn druid, since Nihlatak is seemingly unarmed.

    Barbarian as the smith?

    Fireball sorceress with Bloodmoon as Bishibosh? The blood golem can be the fallen minions :)

    Bul Kathos: Uses the BK set and BKWB

    All of the mercenaries: Amazon with fire arrow and inner sight, Baba with bash and stun, spear wielding zealot with holy freeze, whatever.

    I didn't realize you were looking specifically for D2 enemy monsters..

    For sorc I would say summoner. He uses so many of her spells.
    Heirophant would be another choice. Blizzard + lightning. I'm sure there's a unique heirophant somewhere..

    Barb if not an ancient I would suggest Thresh socket.

    Assassin: One of those slinger cat things. Fireblast is a good approximation of their exploding potions. You can also throw javelins or use bladefury.

    Druid.. no ideas..

    Hmm, I really like the slinger suggestion :)

    any particular reason the thresh socket? I was considering one of these types of enemies too, but I would like the skills to match up somehow.

    I don't think there are any super unique hierophant types, but summoner was something I was considering. Nova/fireball/glacial spike, right? Is there another spell I'm missing?

    corpsemourn druid might be a good idea. . .

    arctic blast + CE plus crappy minions? sweeet (I'm not actually sure how effective the minions can be)

    the necro blood raven is a good idea, too, but the gender doesn't match. Hmm :/
    It would be cool to try a bowamancer ;)

    You could do your Sorc in a Summoner theme - Fire Wall and Glacial Spike.

    I second that Ancients Barb - that would be cool with WW, Double Throw, and Leap Attack, but I don't think the points are there for all those skills.

    You might could do a ranged Sin with BoS for a Blood Raven theme.

    Druid... well that's tough - I can't really think of a SU for him.

    Thresh socket idea was mainly because he is a big and has hurty physical dmg with amp. If you want a specific barb build though there is nothing better than ancients. Frenzytaur would be good if there is a superunique one.

    For druid, I had an idea: Treehead woodfist. Summoner druid with Werebear. The bear form somewhat looks like it, and the druid always claims to be a 'force of nature'.

    Well for the sin I would say slinger as well - but there is no superunique one of those so you will have to go with her
    Blood Witch the Wild since the name is to long you might want to name her just Bloodwitch

    For the sorc i thought of an Inferno sorch wearing only masks being inspired by the Witchdoctor Endugu

    For the Barb just one that hits stuff but is wearing Azurewrath and Shadowfang for the Lore (plus Tyraels if you are crazy and have one) because of the loreheavy items he would be named Izual
    For his skills you can probably just do whatever you want.

    For the druid i thought of Pitspawn Fouldog just use werewolf and the Brand runeword for the cursed procs - or Ice for the Frost Nova on death
    so those i my ideas

    Druid minions are sort of viable. I managed to guardian a summoner, but I was mostly using shockbear to keep everything stunned.

    pitspawn fouldog sounds good for druid. I'd use lacerator for amp, given he is HC I don't think he is worried about the death explosion :) (plus you can use a cold facet for that can't you?)

    well brand has a higher level amp and a higher rate to cast it - but the cold facet is a good idea - even though the frost nova would be on level up - but yeah he is HC so thats for style points

    What about diablo for Druid?

    20 pts in firestorm and max all synergies along with arctic blast (doesn't diablo freeze and slow you when he attacks melee?)

    i think it would be fun if you made the Barb a doll. Basically get the fastest movement speed possible and use a dagger :)

    Barbarian: Hephasto.
    Some hurty mallet + Leviathan + Vamp Gaze (or some green rare items with a bunch of Sols).
    This should make a good PDR Berserker.

    Sorceress: guess who?
    Lightning, Fire Wall, Bone Prison from those unique boots should make a nice combo.
    Don't forget some deep red armour and horned crimson helm.

    Druid: Duriel.
    Hurricane + Cyclone Armor for slowing enemies, Shockwave and Maul for stunning paw hits.
    Duriel's colors somewhat resemble those of a werebear, by the way.

    Sin: Baal.
    This one is quite common and easy:
    Rift FO <=> wave of frost
    Cloak of Shadows <=> Lower Def curse
    Appendages <=> traps of your choice
    Clone <=> Shadow Master
    Light gray armour with orange/red tints in helm/weapon colours.

    Actually, paladin has the best resemblance to duriel with smite and holy freeze. I think in some versions he used charge too.

    True, but AFAIK the topicstarter has already created a paladin for Pindleskin themed build
