Barb using Polearm & WW?

Is this possible in HC and can I make it to hell and stay there?

I figure trying to locate Bonehew or something else.

I just don't know about resists and other unknowns.

Any thoughts or suggestions...

Thanks

Sure it will work, anything can be done ;)
You'll obviously lack the shield and thus some defense but more importantly block. Whereas you compensate with a high damage. I don't remember the WW ias breakpoints for different polearms or Bonehew for example, but it shouldn't be too hard to find them. Go for the highest bb and remeber that you don't have a shield and you'll be fine. Resists will be near the same anyway.

Oh, and don't forget the corresponding mastery. (whether you go polearm or spear)

i'm assuming you mean pvm

If cost isn't an issue I have a great poleaxe ww barb who I think is possibly one of my favourite chars.

With his living merc he does 12k ww with 5.5k life and solid defense. Pretty adequete for dealing with most things in the game.

My son has a IK barb in SC. He uses the set 2 handed maul with no block.

I found that the Hell cows were killing this char and was able to use howl to defeat them. I had problems with herds of cows chopping him into little bits.

Howl scares the cows and they would run away and then come back in 1s and 2s. The barb could chop them as they fled and was able to deal with them in 1s and 2s. Worked great.

I think that there is a polearm that gives block.

Now I'm thinking about making a WW Barb with a ribcracker. Might be fun hearing that "THUD" as he spins spins and spins.

high defense
tele is fun
2 extra skills for when i have to bo myself (i have max bo but its not as good as a boer)
massive strength bonus, somewhere in the 70's i believe.


On this particular build there is a relatively high str requirement and a pretty high dex requirement since i'm not using a shield. With all my added stat point gear his stats look something like:

210 str
120 dex
520 vitality*** kinda nice to have with no block

Go go eth tomb reaver! I was thinking of putting one on a fury druid. But it would work just as good with a WW baba.

(hmmm I might actually make one of those to!)

My level 45 pallys will have this much life without factoring their gear.

You put tons into strength
Read much?

He said 520 vitality, not 520 life. A lvl 9 dueler can get ~520 life...

This looks to me like it is after items. Taking Anni, Torch, Arreat's, BotD, and Enigma into account, his str is probably much lower. HCKull, 520 vitality is much different than 520 life.

His base strength without items is something like 75. So the points invested are:

str - 45
dex - 0
Vit - everything else

with the 5xx vit he has a base life of like 2700 and near 6k with bo.

20 (arreats)
10-20 (torch)
10-20 (anni)
15-20 (rends)
~70 (enigma)

Doesn't look like he spent a "ton" in strength to me... less than 100 hard points total, I'd say.

edit... I'm slow :(
