    a WW barb dealing with Iron Maiden

    After getting to the chaos sanctuary, the quickest I ever have with any character. I notice I keep killing myself after clearing half the sanctuary, so I'm wondering would bezerk be good enough, with only 1 point, to deal with IM all the way through hell. Or should I say screw it to WW and just make a zerker?

    I just reached lvl 30 so i havn't spent any points, but I've been going with mace mastery and don't know if maces are good for beserk?

    lvl 1 zerk is enough for IM and PIs. You don't need more points in it unless you are making pure zerker.

    Well my goal was to use the full IK set, with a WW build. But after getting my own butt kicked by myself I'm questioning if it would be better to go with a zerker build.

    Does Beserked or even WW use Life leech or mana leech, I always thought those mods only counted with physical damage so beserk qouldn't work with them but WW would??

    Berserk is such a crap skill in hell lvls since,

    1) You get smashed by everything around you with 0 defence so quickly
    2) You cant leech the life lost that you are loosing so quickly (see above)
    3) Too slow
    4) Cant kill magic immunes (which amongst others, are those reviver dudes that keep reviving OB Knights) Catch 22 situation
    5) Probably more stuff

    Yep. Whirlwind is the best all-around build we have, and the only one that really works well with the IK set, since the maul is so slow with berserk/conc/bash/stun. Every barb needs one point of berserk, just to handle PIs.

    Use howl + leap w/ zerk. Howl non boss minions, leap boss packs until they are spread out enough to zerk each to death.
