    axe or sword mastery?

    i have decided to make a pvp barb using ww, bo shout , iron skin, and he is gonna use a one handed weapon, i was wondering if botd cb blade and ss , or botd zerker axe was better is the range on cb better than the axe?

    The only advantage the CB has over the Zerker is that it can be weilded 2h for the verstatillity factor. Otherwise, the Zerker has more average dmg, the same range, less reqs, and a slightly faster weapon speed. So unless you really like the look of the cb over the zerker, or you think you'll switch to 2h a lot vs casters or something, than zerker wins.

    No.. a legendary mallet have a range of 1 and will suck with WW.

    Famine is a very nice weapon, but not in a legendary mallet.

    and in pvp its only the magic dmg that would be useful, since the others get neglected by pvp penalty and resists.
