    Define "best".


    Smiters are the easiest with an uninteruptable attack without worry of AR.


    Sins are faster and apply more CB, but rely on AR. Like a smiter, don't rely as much on weapon as they do the main damage (shields and boots). Weapons can be optimized though.

    Barbs are also faster than a smiter, but the added life won't compensate for the AR issue as well.

    There are others, but these are the main and all 3 do them very well.

    Smiters dominate the uber running. Tho frenzy barbs and kickers (like Sass mentioned) all do well.

    Actually, it's the Frenzy barb that is the best barb build for them.

    You think barbs have a lot of builds, paladins are probably king there. Of course, you'll basically see mostly hdins and an occasional smiter even though there are so many more possibilities for that class.

    How is the Frenzy barb for other things? just simply killing the bosses and getting thru hell difficulty on his own?

    Frenzy is the fastest attacker of all barbarians and therefor it applies CB the quickest


    Just build a smiter. You will get off 20 times cheaper.

    Wolfbarb is the best. Huge life pool huge AR, easy to stack resists. Pally's are better though.

    CtC means chance to cast,

    Example: the life tap from dracul's, which is pretty useful for ubering

    I agree, well maybe Beserk, but I remember when the Ubers first came out someone here posted they beat them with a ww barb. Almost any Barb can beat them but WW definately isnt' the best choice

    WW is worse than berserk, at least berserk can use life tap in harmony with concertate

    No barb in his right mind should go anywhere near the ubers, believe me I have tried many builds against them and all have been ineffective compared to a well equipped paladin smiter.
