hmm the truth is barbs have no chance agianst necros and hammerdins. and smiters own them too. they can't tank most elemental casters without aborb and lots of max reists which if they do they'll have to sacrfice a lot. even melee zons can kill eth botd barbs.CyberHawk said:how many games duelin games have you entered recently since 1.10 came out? I would say besides these godly teleportin Necros out there, Barbs are rulein the roost, or more to the point
WE OWN THIS MUTHA!
Its really just based down to resits, DR, AR, and speed. You WILL have to have some items switched in your stash, but to make a pvp barb is make pretty much any of the barbs stickied up top, item wise and stats. I've made a zerker/concentrate, tho both in pvp WW more than anything, and I use my class main skill when I feel I can show them true power.. Zerk/necro, concentrate/barbs/palys/zons. But WW, even tho not a mian skill, and clicked once still works great.
But I would think a true pvp barb would go WW as main, with zerk clicked once. Maybe a run down;
there, that seems doable, the rest of the points could maybe put into IronS. or IncreasedSpeed (speed IS important in pvp).
And item wise, well prettymuch most know what to use there. Tho I havent had luck with getting the Angelico set rings/ammy, but some of these 25k AR wins, esp in these bvb, or melee duels.
Wind druids aren't unresistable. But yes they tear barbs up.Scarpachi said:Max DR/Block Hammerdins, Wind Druids, and Bone Necros will humble you quickly. These bastards are just hard to break through. Their damage is unresistable. Now my barb has 5k life. And its just ridiculous how easy he can take damage. Usually these chars are using the barbs own skills agaisnt him. **** enigma and **** CTA.
There is a chance a BOTD Ghost Spear WW barb can beat these chars. Excellent WW is needed though.

Losing to a smiter? How on earth did that happen...
l2aider1 said:Yes, plz tell me. I have never lost to a smiter and I know some pro smiters, and these smiters WERE using lifetap. Its all about your ww technique.
Barbs are possibly THE most underrated of any char in the pvp scene. The only difference between playing a barb and other chars is it takes MUCH more skill to use a pvp barb effecticely then it does to use a sorc or necro.
So to answer your question. No barbs are still perfectly viable for dueling, however the skill lvl required to play a pvp barb effectively has become alot greater.
