BvB Boots help

im making a BvB barb whos OW heavy but i not sure what boots to use this is the gear i was planning on using:

Arreats w/ ed jewel
Beast zerker
SS w/ ed jewel
Duress
Verndugos
Dracs
Angelics (1 raven if fanta gives good AR)

currently for boots i have upped Gores. with beast + duress + dracs + gores i have 98% OW, but i was think that without gores **% is enough and i could try and get eth treks (defense, psn res, life) or marrows (str, dex). i have never dueled BvB before and was wondering if i could get away with **% OW or should i stick with gores?

You could be oldschool and try out War Travelers for a change. Also, OW isn't the only thing you get from gores, there's also a bit of DS in there, which could be of value.
You could also use Aldur's boots for some life and Damage Taken goes to Mana if DTM from Angelic ammy isn't enough for you.
You could also try using Hsarus Boots + Belt for the big AR boost, if you're willing to give up the DR on Verdungoes, which could be partially made up for by using Ber'd SS.

use upped gobtoes

no r/w (slower ww w/ more hits for pure bvb)
25% cb against high life barbs results in large dmg

the goblin toes is a good idea but i would just stick with gores if wanted CB, i might try war travs to see how much the damage helps.

all these suggestions are good, more would be good :D

gores give deadly too dont they? No reason to use any boots in place of gores in BVB.

Slower whirl speed with goblin toes doesnt work as an advantage hitwise,in BVB it evens out when whirling past each other as he will have you in range as long as you have him.Its only beneficial against stationary targets or multiple targets which is PVM.

ok guys thanks for all the help

now i have another question, i read that BvB OW Barbs use psn damage to compliment OW. i got a few psn scs and was wondering how much psn does the average OW WWinder have?
