My melee build (win on DM/PD): Dual-Wield, Axes, Assassination, Burglary, Archelogy, Smithing, Tinkering. As I stated in another thread, DM/PD, I got the Clockwork Chainaxes crafted on 4th floor and rolled through everything until I hit 10th. All the liquor went into the Cube since I had nothing to spend mana points on. It wasn't until 10th that I actually put the crossbow to use (except for corruption dragons/golems). I generally save bolts and rely on throwables when I have to early, so by the time I got to 10th I had enough to outfit an army. Very fun melee build. Hell, even early on, two Fine Steel Axes can put the Fear of God into zomby's and the like. Naturally, I maxed out crafting skills as early as I could.
