    Armor other than Coh or Enigma

    What is the best armor out there for a concentrate barb other than Coh and Enigma? I am not that "rich"! I have a Gladiators bane...but I cant use that until 85...Or are there better?

    In 1.09 I took a hard core barb to lvl 99 and he wore shaftstop. I have a lvl 85 HC ladder barb and he wears shaftstop too. I think its the best armor out there for this class, and its not that hard to come by.

    gloom also has a hefty defense bonus and better resists if you only have 3 sock armor or find yourself in need of 30 more resist enough to sacrifice some of the excellent mods on stone

    +2 Barb valor (ethreal or not, still not too bad), or a steel carapace is not too bad.

    I use shaft on my barbs till 85, 85 isnt that hard to reach just hell baal abit, then use your glads bane, or stone if you want, basically any armor with nice defense and other mods you like, it depends on your chars weaknesses, but you could own most other barbs with glads bane on in pvp (most barbs ive realised have no idea what they are doing)(of course exluding all barb players on this forum), for pvm glads bane would get you through just fine, personly i dont like the defense on shaft, but if your barb isnt built around defense then just use shaft, its a great armor
