What character should I start with?

Well, I've just came back to the beautiful D2 world of addiction..i've wondered what characters I should make..since I havnt started D2 with NO ITEMS AT all in AGES.

I was thinking about blizzard sorc for MF'ing..and maybe hammerdin and meteorb..what are you guys starting out with? any reasons?

For me, the summon necro is the easiest char to start off with. I started a trapper this season and don't really like her that much. :(

Inside my head.
Trapper + Summoner -- incredibly easy
Javazon + Hammerdin -- incredibly fast killers with no gear, but comparably fragile
Orb Sork -- rather fragile, somewhat gear dependant, but can run meph if you can get it that far

I think summoner is easiest. (Mainly because it takes up until lvl 24 to really win with a trapper).

However, in endgame I prefer trapper for mf% potential.

I'm currently making a trapper, barb bo'er, javazon, and hammerdin (when I get some spirit ingredients).

I chose to play a Blizz sork when my computer is not busy exploding from 10000 pop-ups.

I always choose a sorc when first starting ladder. Basically because I know how to play them well and they are great for mf.

I'd suggest one if you weren't JUST coming back to D2, let alone, HC.

As much as i enjoy playing summoner necros, I seem to have more survivability with a trapper. I always end up loosing my necros when they get amped and I don't realize theres a monster standing next to me.

I'd go with either a javazon or a trapper, mainly because you easily can nm cow with them without killing the king. Cow until you've got a few skillers, then trade them off for all the gear you'll need for your "real" MFer. That's what I'd do if I had an internet connection. Either that or destroy my CDs. One of the two.
