    This is what I think, but give me your opinions:

    Barbarian - Whirlwind
    Paladin - Hammer
    Necromancer - Summon
    Amazon - LightJav
    Sorceress - Blizzard

    Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks in advance.

    I like your pick, but Lightning will have trouble with Grand Vizier, plus the Merc may have trouble too, because I think he's immune to Physical. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

    I don't generally go all-out for speed, but I think Archone's choices are probably right. Keep in mind that Infinity's Conviction aura will break Grand Vizier of Chaos's lightning immunity. Also, he's not immune to physical. Shouldn't slow a lightning sorc down much, if at all. Blizzard could be pretty quick too. I don't think I know enough to comment on which of the two would be faster.

    I think a poison necro would be faster than a summoner. They both get Corpse Explosion and a merc. The summoner probably has sturdier Revived and more of them, but it wouldn't matter that much, and they both get them. The summoner's skeletons do damage too, but it's puny compared to a decked out Poison Nova.

    The mages in CS are all cold immune, and their immunity cant be broken by Infinity. So a Pure Cold sorc wont be fast there..

    Oh yes, you're right. So lightning it is.

    Necro - Poisonmancer would also do ok if not better.

    Druid - Windy would also do ok, if not better.

    If infinity is not available then the lightning sorc would have to become a hybrid.

    Multishot amazon wouldn't do to bad in this case either with the nice arrow spread.

    Only one of them (Lord de Seis) actually has to be killed in order to spawn Diablo. One could simply park the others, of which there aren't that many. I don't actually know how that would measure up against a pure lightning sorc, never having played a single-tree sorc myself.

    The javazon would have Charged Strike for the seal bosses, so unless Multishot is considerably faster elsewhere to compensate for that, it shouldn't be a contest.

    If it is just about finishing the run, not actually killing as many boss packs as possible, then a barb using berserk and enigma would probably be the fastest. However, when it comes to killing boss packs in general, my money is on the hammerdin, especially if it is a high players setting.
