    I'm working on a maul-weilding berserk-whirlwind barbarian now. So far so good. He's only in Act II Normal.

    The best defense against a PK is having your tp tome hotkeyed and a quick hand...

    Any class can be good in hell, you just have to play them well. If you're looking for an easy one though, try sword/shield or dual sword. In the first case you want whirlwind and berserk for skills, in the second case you want whirlwind and frenzy (the second is more fun IMO).

    i disagree. whirlwind and berserk. with sword/shield on weapon tab 1, two swords on tab 2. use both swords for normal enemies, you get a whole lot more ww hits that way, and if you're berserking a boss or something, use the shield.

    That's because you play sissy hardcore. Gotta trade damage for armor.

    you die too much? there isn't exactly room for "too much." anything more than zero is "too much."

    my first hc chars died but now i've got the hc thing down. you get a feel for it over time. sometimes i pop into sc games for the heck of it. it freaks me out every time i see some one die... "person killed by Stigon Doll." me = :eek: ... oh wait. then i make some comment about sc and get flamed. :p
