    If your interested in going to ubertrist that guide is very well written and includes full lists of gear choices, it is really focused on uber running, but has the option of a death sentry backup which is going to be your main pvm killer outside of ubertrist. If you are going to be playing with a necromancer though you will need to consider what kind of build they are going to be making. One of a necromancer's main killing skills is corpse explosion and in turn makes death sentry slightly redundant. I guess a couple questions first before I get into it more.

    Do you know what kind of build your friends are going to be running?
    What kind of gear do you have available or are you just restarting from scratch?

    I have no idea what kind of build my friends will be running with, the Necro will prob focus alot on summons/curses cuz its his first time ever playing D2 and he refuses to listen to me when i tell him to get CE.

    I will be starting 100% from scratch as well.

    This is the guide that I read and followed for my first kicksin. I usually build a dancer as the first character on a new ladder as they can get by with pretty meager gear. Crushflange, Strength or Black are easy to build weapons that will give enough crushing blow to play through the game. Strength can be made in claws to there is some nice potential there. Wear the heaviest boots you find / gamble / craft, keep you resists positive and you'll be set. Get your Necro buddy to spam Life Tap and you are nearly invincible.

    After you get better gear you can respec to suit your play style.

    You can make a mfing character first if you so chose, but its not necessary to beat the game. If you are to start up a magicfinding character a sorceress is usually your best bet due to their teleport skill which makes travel easy and quick. You can chose either single element or dual element depending on the targets you want to run.

    In terms of going through the game with a kick sin as your first character it will be a little harder but definately not impossible. As long as you equip a weapon with some form of crushing blow like the ones listed by Aaron and the heaviest pair of boots you can find you will do decent damage and you should have an army of tanks from the necro to take most of the damage for you so survival won't be as difficult. If the necromancer is not going to invest in corpse explosion then by all means, be sure to max out death sentry as its the next best thing. If you want stronger traps to go with your kicks you can also max out lightning sentry as that will do more damage if both of them are maxed due to synergies.

    If you want to forgo both of these options, the least gear dependent assasin is a pure trapper as they rely solely on plus skill gear, and claws with +skills to traps can be shopped from vendors quite easily, but they are unable to run uber tristram.

    Being rich would be nice, but not always possible. A sorc is usually the choice due to teleport like I said. You can magicfind with any character though. A lot of people use hammerdins because nothing is really immune to them, but I find their gameplay boring so I usually stay away from them. An ammy with teleport charges is usually easy to find/gamble so there are always multiple options.

    No problem, take a look through the strategy guides in the sorceress forum, you should be able to dig up a few good builds there and then you can post any other questions.
