What would be the best non Arcane Warrior solo build for a nightmare run? I've done it with a rogue in a party, but nothing else. I'll be taking it from Origins to Awakening, and stopping there. I have NONE of the DLCs if that effects anything.
after you do get used to it, you'll wonder why people play twitchy, imprecise crap like Call of Duty or Halo. - Some guy on the KZ2 board.

I'm sure Rip will come in with his 4 different non-mage builds, but personally, my easiest time was as a Stealth, Cunning, Grenade, Dual-Wielding Dagger Rogue. Stealth helps get you in position and out of really tight positions. Cunning because that's all anyone preaches with a Rogue. Grenade (Poisons in general) for some AoE damage and extra damage from poisons. Dual-Wielding Daggers because again, that's about all anyone preaches with a Rogue and it's much better than your Archery choice. Specializations would be Assassin/Bard (again, maximize those Cunning stats).

Yeah, it's pretty much the standard "most broken Rogue I can make" but it works best here too. It is harder in the beginning, but once you gain a couple of levels and get a few abilities, it should be relatively easy.

Personally I'd recommend a noble dwarf 2H warrior specced as a champion and a templar since they're not as reliant on DLC gear and talents like a backstabbing rogue (though it is doable as densetsu stated). You could also just go w/ a spell-flinging mage build specced as a blood mage and spirit healer but I personally find that boring because you don't get to do any fatalities.

Wrong! XD

Wahaha!

I just came in w/ 2 and I really only advised 1! But yeah you're right. Stealth is a god-send in solos.

This works better in awakening when accuracy is available though. Archers are godly in awakening

Tell me about it. Everyone remember that ONE elite rank Hurlock Sniper at the Turnoble Estate? Yeah, that son of a ***** seriously ****** my **** up.

IMO, a dex-based sword and shield warrior.

42 strength, max dexterity.

You will do decent damage, but will be nearly unhittable by end-game.

You will also do decent bow damage if you need some ranged attacks (archdemon, broodmother, etc.).
