    Gloves/Helm for a solo barb?

    I'm trying to solo hell on my first time through Diablo 2, wondering whether Arreats or Guillaumes is better for soloing, and the same for LoH/Draculs.

    Thanks.

    Both helms work well but if you find a way to get mass resist guillaume's is a very good choice. Loh if you are ww and dracs if you are frenzy.

    I'd say it really depends on the build, but I believe i remember you having a WW barb?

    Arreats is the king barb helm unless your a singer looking for something amazing. Has alot of good stats for every build.

    If you really need the CB ( for running bosses with lack of damage) i'd say guil, but I doubt you'd need this. I'd go for arreats.

    LoH if you need the ias to hit a breakpoint or the % damage to demons/fire resits works well with you place style.

    Dracs if you could use the STR and the life-tap. Again dracs are normally for ubers that you cant leech off of any other way to keep you from dieing.

    Solo pvm Arreats/LoH would be a good combo, for running ubers you see more Dracs/Guil combos

    Okay, thanks. Frenzy by the way, should have mentioned that.

    i like Dracs but Loh is totaly useable. i like Gface um'ed over arreats, especially if your using grief or other CB lacking weapons.

    Ya for me its all about balancing stats. If you low on CB, throw on Guilliams. If your good with CB (from weapon or boots or whatever), then arreats. Or do both, have arreats on for general use, and throw on Guil if you find killing the boss a little slow.

    My WW barb uses arreats and gets his Cb for general use from goblin toes. If I need more then 25% (say i want to do baal runs and speed it up), i have a guil in the stash. don't really need more then 25% though, hes a high damage build, most things aside from baal die fast enough for me to not worry.

    oh and dracs on a ww barb are totally fine also, its a little off topic but lots or babas in pvp use them, and if it works in pvp it will be just as affective in pvm. if yer ww and want to exploit the Lifetap, toss on a fury ba, proc the lt and whirl away.

    As said above: dracs on frenzy, loh on WW. I always use um'd guills as the extra CB is awesome, especially at players 1. Depending on your other gear it can be tough to get your res to max and the other mods on arreat's is nothing to scoff at.

    Hum.. I dont like lifetap in pvm... I prefer Loh/Gface and a exciting fight against a pack of dead lords :D

    This is the strategy of my new frenzy barb with eoath smallcresent, upped butchers, coh, gore and string.

    Ok. I pot sometimes
