    A question on IK Barbs.

    I just got done reading the guide in the "Strategy Compendium" and I was wondering why it says to leave dex and base??? Wouldn't that cause some problems connecting with monsters in NM and Hell?

    the IK set gives a healthy bonus to AR which is further multiplied by mace mastery and WW.

    And adding DEX for AR is a waste

    OK, thank you very much. I am glad I didn't use any points into dex yet.

    I planned on using at least 1 Ravenfrost. I was going to try for BK as the other but, I will screw around a bit and see what I like best.

    recommand to have at least 12K AR if u want to be a Hell Baal Killer

    IK Barb is good enough...it is not toughest build...but enough to handle all the monster in hell level...havnt found any monster I cant beat with IK-WW Barb....(include Uber-Diablo)

    The IK Barb is probably one of the best builds when considering cost as a factor - IMO. You can build a fine IK Barb with like 1 or 2 soj's value (unless you want great charms). I suggest a raven frost (the no-freeze is very nice, and a bit of cold damage and absorb never hurts), and an angelic amulet and ring. I've never been a big fan of Bul Kathos' rings - the +skills is really not that important, the life isn't huge and you will do fine with 10% life leech IMO. I'd rather trade it for a bunch of life charms, preferably with useful secondary mods. Remember to shop for two echoing weapons (the girl you rescue in act 5 is good for that - lots of throwing spears and a portal right next to her) and put them in secondary for a dandy bonus to your yells.

    Oh, and your question :lol: ... yep, no dex at all. Your items won't require it, and with the above-mentioned items you should have enough. If not, try look for a Demon Limb (tyrant?)club. Few people know about this and write it off as a crappy item due to low damage and such - however, you won't be using it to fight with. It has 20 charges of level 23 enchant, granting a little bit of fire damage, but +218% AR :eek: for ten minutes!! It can be pretty expensive to repair, but AFAIK there's a cube recipe that re-fills it.. (ort+flawless? not sure)

    Have a nice day.
