There are some classic bowa guides in the stickies of the Classic section here on d2jsp. FA/x hybrid seems capable to me, but slow and dangerous.

Hammerdin/WW Barb are very overpowered but I still enjoy WW barbs because I really enjoy the weapons/armor graphics on barbs combined with all the fun colours of classic items (due to mainly using rares)

Sorc is the same as xpac - can be overpowered or not depending on which build you want to choose.

Bone necro is fun, especially if making use of the left-side curses.

the typical "best" builds on classic are summon/ce, ww barb, dual orb/x sorc, hdin.
bowa is much, much harder and grind heavy in classic, but doable.

For single player I'd rather go bone necro over summon in classic tbh (have made both)... Mercs are weak as fuck, they arent going to kill anything in Hell. Getting that first 1-2 summons is a bitch, plus they die between acts so you cant summon in a1 then go to a4. CE does 90%++ of your damage with either build and you still have crowd control and protection through the left-side curses and bone armor/wall/prison

yeah and merc too (and all revives), plus mercs cant be revived or geared. Other notable things I can remember is that there are no elite items, exceptional items can only drop up to rare, the only uniques are normal grade. no charges or ctc items, barbs have max ww ias with w/e weapon, alvl/mlvls are lower, obviously no runes/jewels/charms and tiny stash. Pretty sure there is no act 5 as well
