Of course.. one time I tried to start a ww, but kept single swinging at a golem, which slowed me, while I was decrepped, then I tried to restart ww but the nec teleported RIGHT where I clicked (maybe a char width from where he was) and I swung AGAIN at the golem, and it took about 2 seconds to complete the swing, all the while I'm eating a train of BS, finally I squeek away, but then I run straight into IBS when coming back for a hail mary.

I figured that wasn't a good demonstration of how to use a barb though :)

The four charms along the bottom next to the anni are: 5res/5fhr, 5res/5fhr, 5res/5fhr, 3max/19ar/5fhr. Yeah one doesn't match, but I have two 11light/5fhr sc's that DO match on ladder.. HURRY UP LEVEL 98 DRUIDS!

You mean when you stand in place swishing w/ ww animation? That's just lag, usually exacerbated by a namelock ww at the same time.

Interesting presentations!
It was so amazing to see how the old bunch of mud Gumpy is punching Quil rat, while his master - The lord of the dark forces was splited in peaces by Smash!

My vid card has tv out, i just plugged this (svideo) into a tivo & pass the audio through my preamp into the tivo also.

Then I play it back from the tivo through a TV tuner card I also have, and record it with VirtualDub, initially using PIC video compression and no audio compression, then after editing encoding the video w/ DIVX and audio w/ some MP3 codec (such that it is a valid DIVX video).

I tried FRAPS to begin with but it makes d2 run at 2fps.. not really feasible.

Yeah the quality gets reduced somewhat by going to NTSC resolution through the TV out, then the compression artifacts can be annoying, but any less compression and larger video size would just result in MASSIVE files.

How about a torrent of all those other videos as well? I don't like having to use use Page Info in firefox to save those embedded movies.

Hey mcm, How often do you find arreats more rewarding then CoA...could I actually get by with a BvC barb without an arreats? Stick with maybe a ber Arreats and storm if necessary? Not for block but just dr.

And if you mind me asking what's your cast rate? Do you switch to fcr rings often?

Thx man.

I'm pretty sure the stickied BVC guide addresses those questions.
Where's this stickied? I've searched a couple of times, and haven't come up with anything useful. I've been considering making a BvC for a couple of months now, and I think I'm finally going to get around to doing it.
