    A serious PvP throwbarb thread

    Well since all the good threads got deleted it's time we have another discussion on this topic. Seems like everyone wants to make one but they don't really have PvP in mind. Well I do.

    My thoughts on gear:
    Prereqs: 48-50% DR, ~13k AR, as much +life and +stat as possible, max resists in hell (not possible with average gear).

    There are a multitude of ways you can go gear wise. But for increased throw damage your best bet will be +skills. +masteries specifically. Alot of people disagree with this. If you are one of them then demonstrate it mathmatically please.

    Gear Thoughts:
    Helm: Arreats face "ber" +30 resist 8% DR, 20 str/dex
    Armor: Chains of honor or enigma
    Boots: Gores or stat boots
    Gloves: crafted with IAS and CB and +stats
    Belt: Verdungos
    Ammy: Highlords or rare with +skills, +resists, +life
    rings: BK
    weapons: highest ed% stygian pilums you can find
    Charms: masteries +life, max/ar/life, vita, resist

    on switch
    fury bb and SS.



    Stats: coming later haven't got this far yet
    Skills: need to review this will post it later.

    Post your ideas here, don't just post your ideas but post the theory behind by you think it will work. Thanks.

    i did some gear reviews and this is the final gear choice for me.

    Arreats "ber"
    coh (don't know what armor type yet)
    verdungs
    Skull heart ammy
    bk ring
    ravenfrost ring
    Loath Grasp gloves
    Death Treads boots
    rare stygian pilums with 300+ ed, AR, IAS, regen

    charms remain the same

    Skills
    max throw mastery
    max double throw
    max double swing
    max BO
    split whatever is left and put at least one point in BC, IS and NR.

    ill tell you what i have on my barb.

    Dual Gimmershreds
    Arreats with 27ed/15ias
    Shaftstop with 8max/15ias
    IK Gloves, Boots, and Belt
    Highlords
    Dual Ravens

    20 BO
    20 Throw Mastery
    20 Double Swing
    5 Natural
    1 Axe Mastery
    1 WW
    1 Frenzy
    1 Battle Command
    1 Increase Speed
    1 in each prerequisites

    120 str
    170 dex
    140 vit

    my barb is around level 74, still in nightmare. i have 2k life and only have max resist on lightning, fire and ice in nightmare, poison is about 68. my damage is 5k each hand with double throw with 8k ar. Resistance is hard to max for me, unless i use CoH with charms which i dont have. i beat ppl around my level most of the time, unless they have godly gear.

    i was just wondering have you made one yet? cuz you should experience them 1st hand b4 trying to get the godly gear.

    yes I have made several in single player. I won't use glimmers since i consider amp to be bm. Aside from that I want to use javs and stygians have fastest base speed for barbs with highest avrg dmg and stack size. Also more AR is critical for taking out defiance palas and s/s barbs.

    no need to get testy. I think I was mistaking glimmers for lacerator. Glimmers don't do enough dmg imo. The elemental dmg is nice but not a factor to me. With the right charms and gear my throw barb can to 7k throw dmg or more with better 300%+ ed javs.
