    Axe Build help

    okay i havent played a barb since i was dueling in softcore .09 but the other day i was mfing and found a rare small crescent axe with these mods:
    156-246 dmg (one handed)
    310% ed
    prevent monster heal
    137 to AR
    1-7 light dmg
    8% mana leech
    cold res 6%
    lvl 48 req
    i know there are better but this makes me want to build an axe barb..but i have no clue about most of the builds in 1.1...

    im just wondering, if i want to use that axe, what would be the best build the use for it? i kinda want to be able to have decent killing power and to be able to tank/kill hell mephy

    Max axe mastery (1st) then 1 in conc, nat res, inc speed, zerk and taunt, then alternate between ww and bo, when those 2 are maxed add to shout, after that nat res/inc speed.

    yes, frenzy is fine. you will need one of the crowd control warcries:
    howl
    battle cry
    war cry
    grim ward

    ok posting here because its easier for me to find it again for responses...
    im gonna go frenzy with thhat axe and another like it or maybe an up'd butchers pupil or something..
    is it really best to go with base dex and min str?
    im not the richest guy in the world so i cant afford small charms for ar or anything...
    im planning on:
    Max Frenzy
    Max Taunt
    Max BO
    Max Shout
    at least 1 axe mastery for the crit strike bonus (itll get up'd by skills from arreats and stuff)
    Rest into 1 pt wonders, and then dump into synergy/mastery
