    A few questions.

    What axe should I use for a WW-barb?

    Can someone point me to a complete BotD-WW-build? Including stats, merc, items, skills etc. (No, I don't have any really high runes, but I like to dream)

    This is what I think:

    Merc: A2 might (nightmare, offensive)

    Stats:

    Strenght: enough for end-game gear
    Dexterity: enough to use Botd BA (usually base)
    Vitality: everything else
    Energy: obviously none

    If you aren't going to PvP at all, you might want to pump Strenght instead of vitality for damage wise.

    Skills:

    WW - max
    mastery - max
    BO - max
    Shout - max

    The remaining points to Iron skin/increased speed/berserk

    Plus the one point wonders.

    Items:

    Helm - Arreat's face (upg. socketed with ed/str)
    Armor - Leviathan/upg. Shaft/Chain of honor (socketed with ed/str)
    Shield - Stormshield (socketed with Hel/shael/ed/str)
    Weapon - Botd BA
    Boots - Goreriders/Wartravs
    Belt - Verdungo's
    Gloves - Steelrend/Dracul's grasp
    Rings & ammy - Raven frost/angelic/BK ring/wisp/Hlord's

    I'm just guessing that the BA is Berserker Axe.
    I was actually asking questions about two different builds. I want advice on an axe for a PvM-WW-build, other than runewords, and I want to know which weapon is best suited for PvM-WW-any-BotD. I was thinking along the lines of War Pike.

    for the axe, without a runeword, you are pretty limited. i'm not sure about the breakpoints, but from what i can recall, it's tough to get a decent ww axe.

    with botd, war pike doesn't hit the last bp (you need 80 added ias, botd only gives 60).

    The only choice which comes to my mind is Death cleaver (uniq BA) with shael or perhaps some godly rare Ö_ö

    For PvM WW: Great poleaxe.
