Hello fellow SPF forumites! I'm aware that most of you are gearing up and doing trial runs for RFL or maybe trying out the new 1.07 crafts (which I find fascinating), but I bring about simpler endeavours. (I'm trying to Guardian in time for RFL though) I'm almost at NM Baal with my necro, and this means Hell is right around the corner. Taking into account that this is my only character I'm actually gonna start up another one, just in case of deeds. (oh my) Does anybody have experience with untwinked WW barbs? I haven't ever played a WW barb, and I'm on the lookout for any HC tips. Things I learned from research: - Block and leech works with WW. - WIAS is the only source of IAS that matters. - 'short' and lateral whirlwinds are safer . - Nobody makes Weapon & Shield WW barbs. 1. But I'm actually tempted to go for blocking, does it sound reasonable? 2. Any specific weapon that you consider I should focus my gambling on? I read some things about weapon range being important for WW, but I'm not totally sold on that. 3. PDR (I never actually cared for this affix before), are a couple Sol runes on the gear worth it? I'm thinking that if PDR actually makes a difference, I could try and craft some safety gloves/belts with some res and leech on them to boot. If the general consensus is that WW is a bad idea for HC, I'll just roll with the more familiar beserker. Thanks for reading!
