about the eth botd zerker axe hello, i am quite new around these forums and i have been browsing through the barbarian forums quite alot recently. i happened to see hal's conc barb guide and i must say that i find it very interesting. however, i have a few doubts to clarify. it was mentioned in the text that only 101 str was required to equip the axe but when i calculated, i found out that 110 str was required instead. why is this so? do ethereal items have lower requirements? i really do not know and i would appreciate it if you could tell me. thanks. while we are at it, i would also like to ask how it is possible to obtain max resists in hell. with arreats, we are only getting 30 resists and stormshield only gives some cold and lightning resists. enigma provides none. does this mean that all the resists come from charms? i am really stumped. :scratch: it would be even better if someone could post their setup here for reference. thanks a bunch. :thumbsup: sorry for the long post, but i really want to know about these things. it would be greatly appreciated.
