Currently playing HC and will stick to HC - just to give that info up front :D .

Have a level 94 rabies Druid and having mad fun with my HC buds... now thinking of starting something new.

I have a full setup for either a bowazon, sorc, nec, or trapsin. Haven't made either bow or trap in this MOD but worried that Bowazons won't suffice when it comes to hell. How are light trapsin if you gear them right?

Not really up for making a summoner or even teeth so i would stick to either Sorc, Sin, or Zon.

Any thoughts?

Bowzons are amazing at trash on SC with you being able to just into dex, not sure how it would be on HC while trying to max survivability.

Trap sins are pretty good and fade + claw block + Cloak + master make them very durable.

ES/TK is nice and doesn't die much unless you run head first into manaburn <_< it's ugly.

I think ill go trap...You think fire is better than light or vice versa?

How do you feel about a Meteor sorc?

I know of a meteor sorc who could solo Guardian last ladder and it was a pretty decent build, I prefer light trappers because they can run WSK a lot easier than fire trappers.

How viable is the Death Sentry here? I use to be able to kill everything with CE in Vanilla D2... did they nerf it in this MOD?

Trappers aren't a weak build really. It's actually one of the few builds that would even stand a chance against the soulmancer boss. As for death sentry... It doesn't inherit your pierce but if it's maxed the CE will hit most if not all of the screen causing massive damage. All other traps get your full pierce including from both claws. Back last ladder when monster base life was 200% for soloing a maxed death sentry's CE would still rape despite that and having no pierce. Soloing monster health is 300% now so it's going to take 1/2 more CE dethonations to kill monsters with it now.

I only like light sins because I kited LoS necro with one while I failed hard with a fire sin... probably was just me but oh well.

I wouldn't build a light sin with any ideas of kiting the LoS necro on HC. Not to say the build isn't awesome, because it is. It's gotta be up there in the top DPS on a single target.

Lockdown how did using light over fire work better for kiting the necro? I would think WoF would be easier due to its great AOE. Did you use sentry or CB?

Dsentry is awesome. Especially if you can find a way to get some conviction or LR, then it's just insane. Way better than CE IMO.

CE is looking pretty lackluster these days with the insane mana cost, reduced monster damage, and higher minimum spawn. CE still does well enough on 3p I suppose though. I don't think returning it's old mana cost or buffing the monster damage would be overpowered. Wrong thread for this rant I guess.

I used Sentry and I said it was probably me more so than the build.
