    annoying thing about low str..

    my dueler just ran into a little problem. When i wear my valor, in addition to the display bug, he cannot pick up his SS or Steelrends. So when i die, i cannot pick up all my gear, i need to run back to town, get my enigma, and pick them up, then switch back to my valor. Should i just invest some more points into strength? I mean i have 95 base Strength, and i thought that would be more than enough, but i do alot of BvB, so do you think i should get at least enough Strength to carry the SS? Thx in Advance

    lol. Some of my chars have the same problem! DON'T invest in more str. I found an easy trick, get a 1.10 aldurs jagged rythm (set mace w/ 3 sockets) and stick 3 fal runes in it (or less, depending) and this should give nearly +50 str. It's not as much of a hassle as it might seem. Saves you stat points.

    Or a 6 socket crystal sword w/6 fal runes = 60 str.

    Oh, and Aldurs Rythym will only give 30 str w/3 fal runes.

    why not find an ammy with +30 str
    easy to equip and only takes 1 small spot.
    or perhaps a ring of +20 str, also same idea

    to be honest, im blown away that your barb only has 95 str!

    is that enough to do decent dmg?

    my WW dmg is 1326-4708 no poison, with my BvB gear on(which concentrates on High Defense and High AR)

    1538-5454 with a diff setup, still no poison and only ravrnfrost as elemental dmg.

    My other setup is pure damage, and it is

    1645-6102 (still no poison)

    not too low in my opinion.

    actually if u have only 1 corpse, the game will save it, so u will not lose the items that you cannot equip, (in my case the SS and steelrends) i know from experience because i exited and rejoined and my corpse was lying in the rogue encampment

    im am currently making a low str tweaker right now. i have it all planned out and this is what it is going to be like

    82 base str - +13 str from annihilus = 95 str. equip wartravs +10 str = 105 - enough to equip enigma archon +65ish str. so that gives me 170 str which is easily enough to equip ss, arreats, and botd zerker.

    with 82 base str my char will have about 250 str when im done.



    on a side note, im getting about 125 dex points from items too which is going to let me keep a low dex.

    this setup will allow me to pump vit up very high, and still do lots of dmg with all that str i will have.

    You can certainly get by with that. My conc barb has 81 base str and 132 base dex, 255/222 after items. I use annihilus to bring me to 101, and then equip BotD berserker, then enigma, and then my stormshield, upgraded Arreat's, and Upgraded gores. Damage is currently around 7.4k one-hand, with over 6,000 life.
