    First off, let me start off by saying that you guys are AWESOME. I've been lurking in these forums for quite some time but finally bit down and created an account. You guys have some incredible guides/builds/posts stockpiled on this website.

    If there is a post I should be directed to for this question, please let me know.

    I'll briefly explain my situation:
    -I played A LOT of D2 several years ago
    -I played prior to torches and ubers and all this overwhelming "new" (to me) stuff
    -I played the most when SoJs were standard currency -_-'

    So my question for you strapping gentlemen and fine ladies, is complicated but I'm hoping for some guidance.

    Where do I start!?!?

    What should my first character be?
    -Is a MF sorc the best to start with?
    -Hammerdin?
    -Smiter?
    -Fishymancer (because they aren't as item dependent?)

    Once I have a decent character, what do I do?!
    -Rush people for forges?
    -Baal runs?
    -Various MF runs?

    I'm basically just at a loss on where to start.

    I'm going to start on US East tonight after work but will check back here frequently!

    Thanks in advance!
    You guys rock!

    This is how Ill start my ladder. On EUSCL.

    Leveling a Sorc to at least lvl 60-65. And complete Nightmare.
    Do mf runs in Nightmare, with at least 2 mf items at the start. Both gloves and boots can be bought with a decent 20-25 mf on them.
    Andariel, Countess, Mephisto, Cow level are all nice and easy places to run for items, runes, and socketable items.

    The items Ill aim for to obtain before I enter Hell are these.

    3os Helm w 3x Perf Topazes

    4os Armor w 4x Perf Topazes
    or
    Skullders Ire
    or
    Skin of the Vipermagi
    or
    Any unique armor with resists/magic dmg reduction.

    Chance Guards

    Spirit Sword

    Rhyme Shield
    or
    Sanctuary Shield

    Insight Polearm for merc.
