BVC Pole Barb ?#!?!#!? I know that the majority of pvp barbâ€™s on this forum are convinced that grief/beast zerks is the only option for a bvc. I as well use grief/beast, BUTâ€¦..what would happen if you put an ebotdgpa on a bvc. For starters, I never use a shield except against fohers and thatâ€™s a ptopaz shield. Next, I sometimes find myself just barely missing a sorc or nec in a duel when I tele/ww them. Thirdly, desyncing hdins often come real close, but I just nick them or miss when I ww in and out of hammies. Good zerk smiters often present a challenge as ur ranges are compatible. I could go on an on about how range is a huge factor in pvp. Not to mention, tri whirls could be done at a safer distance. So why not go up to range 5 with a nearly 1k dmg wep? Of course you lose some ds and ow. Those are the two biggies, that bother me. But wouldnâ€™t you make up for a lot of that with a huge attack radius. I could still maintain 45% open wounds with gear and 47% chance for dbl dmg. This is just a thought I hadâ€¦ any opinions? Iâ€™d really like to hear from people that have tried this and not a lot of theorizing that it wouldnâ€™t work as good as dual zerks.
