    Anti-light barbabarian?

    Since the new patch i have alot of left over melee gear. I also am slained by FoHers and trapasins in duels. So i put two and two together and am making a light absorb barb. Heres how he will look at around lv 79-80:

    Skills:20 ww
    20 concentrate
    20 BO
    20 Mace mastery
    +11 in pre reqs and one point wonders(natural resits...etc.)

    Equip: (keep in mind these are leftovers)
    Arrets(resits, ias?)
    Stone armor
    Scheafners(36ed/15ias)
    T. gods/String(for melee)
    1x raven
    1x wisp projector
    IK gloves
    IK boots
    4x orted shield/ ss(for melee)
    highlords

    My aim is to have max light resits in hell with conviction on me. However i do have 2 questions:

    1. will i need both wisp projector and t. gods, or will one have enough absorb.

    2.Will this build work well in melee(i.e. zeal pallys,conc barbs, wolf druids)

    thank you for your time.

    2x lightsaber gives 100% lightnign absorb, the tradtional lightnign killer.

    I like my lionheart/mosers set up. Along with Arreats/Thundergods, 90% of all assassin I killl..the other10% live casue they can tele fast.:)

    Tho this set up still suffers vs alot of FOH'ers, I found out that if I add a wizardspike in place of the mosers, and possible just carry 2 Wizs. and a few charms, my posin takes care of them from there.

    I always prefer the cheaper route...casue, well, I aint got that kinda gear mentioned above..:)

    Have a normal weapon with shield setup for other duelers and when you come up to a lighting caster go all out switch to dual lightsabers and teach them your song :drool:

    I realize i could have gone the easy route and used to lightsabres. im making this build in hopes of being good at anti-light AND melee.

    IIRC Absorb is capped at 50% in the patch...

    why concentrate? Berserk always considered best swing skill
    Conc + BO 20 lvl = 365 ED
    Berserk 20 lvl = 435 by itself
    And cant be easy resisted with DR gear
    Or in 1.10 no barb can live without maxed Conc? 1.10 reign of Conc lol.
    Whatever Blizz done in 1.10 and whatever you read in guides doesnt mean Conc is best.

    for some reason only hal#2's conc guide made it to the cs. all the other early guides (zerk, frenzy, pvp) didn't.
