Thanks for the suggestions. Back in the day i probably played a good 20-30 hours before I got distracted by other games/life. When I used to play I had a couple of characters, one that was just for laughs (a caestus wielding puncher), I think I started a cleric, and then I also had as my "main" a pole arm/shield/magic user.
I think what id like to try this time is something both a bit challenging but fun. Was thinking either full melee STR build or possibly an archer? As I've never really played the game either of those ways. Any suggestions on builds centered around those?
I'm also kinda into the whole "theme" builds as well (y'know where you pick a character from a show or another game or something and try to make it in game) but I can't seem to find any characters that interest me. Any suggestions here would be welcome as well! (Coolest/dumbest build I found so far was a dual xbow char on reddit lol)
Thanks again guys for the input!
