    Yep, ethereal botd berserker axe is pretty much the tops for a conc barb. Best one-hand damage, low reqs, very fast base speed, making it easy to get to 9 frames.

    -Hal

    edit: eth is a BotD in an ethereal weapon. Any other type of BotD is a total waste of runes.
     
  5. botd is very expensive though, i just started 1.10, got nothing yet, but should i go with an axe like u've all suggested?

    I'm contemplating a conc barb, would doombringer cut it? would need alot of ias (90?) but I could manage it
     
  11. what about just cruel berserker, stick some ias in it, would that work? cuz i am leaning towards axe, way 2 many swords.

    Sup,

    Maybe the conc-botd- (ba or cb) players provide us with the damage they do?
    Mine's 2230-6030 (1h BA 380%)

    Ash:

    Doombringer works ok, but it's kinda slow and doesn't do a ton of damage, so sooner or later you'll want something else.

    Avenger:

    Yeah, a cruel berserker works great. I used a 281% cruel for months before I got my BotD berserker axe =)

    Qor:

    Though I've stated it plenty of times before, my Conc barb with the BotD berserker axe scrapes 7.8k base, and +- 9k with the merc.

    My dream conc weapon would be an ethereal zod'ed death's cleaver. Over 400 1 handed damage and 66% deadly strike :)

    non-evil hal here chiming in: :)

    i dunno what def you guys are going for, but for pvm, i find shout during conc gives me around 12-18k defense, usually around a 20% or less chance to be hit. if you get howl or war cry instead of shout, you won't have to worry about getting hit at all.

    i would go with a big 2hander, preferably extremely evil-looking with demonic scrawl on it. to wit, an etheral earth shifter, zod, or steel pillar, ohm. :)
