Calling all Frenzy Barbs! After years of refusing to upgrade from version 1.09 and then months of another awesome game (The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion) I have finally installed patch 1.11 as Frostburn advised. I fired up a brand new Frenzy Barb about a week ago and have a few questions. I apologize beforehand, as I realize these questions were quite possibly discussed in earlier threads, but I found little mention in my forum searches or any of the character guides. Besides, you ladies and gentlemen give capital advice, and are polite as well. QUESTION 1: I am aiming for the following skill point placement: Warcries Howl - 1 Taunt - 1 through ? Shout - 1 Battle Cry - 1 Battle Orders - 20 Warcry - 10 Combat Skills Bash - 1 Double Swing - 9 Double Throw - 1 Frenzy - 20 Leap - 1 Leap Attack - 1 Stun - 1 Concentrate - 1 Berzerk - ? Combat Masteries Sword Mastery - 20 *Any skill not listed receives 0 skill ponts. This allocates a total of 89 skill points. Assuming this character reaches Clvl 99, that leaves 21 skill points remaining. My question is, where should these points go? Maxing Taunt for it's synergy bonuses to Frenzy seems like a good idea. But on the other hand, my past Barbarian builds in 1.09 always maxed Berzerk, and that seems like a good idea as well; if I ever want to combat those pesky Physical Immunes. Then again, I sure like the idea of at least 5 points in Natural Resistance as well. I'm playing untwinked and self-found, so I have doubts about my ability to garner a lot of +skills equipment. What would you advise? Max Taunt, Max Berserk, or split the skill points between the two? And what about Natural Resistance? QUESTION 2: Using Mace Mastery instead of Sword Mastery seems somewhat appealing, with all the magical scepters available at vendors (good starter weapons, possibly), and the +50% damage to undead. I seem to recall hearing Jude advocate maces. Which weapon mastery would you suggest? Sword, or mace? Question 3: I know that your fastest weapon should be in your character's right hand (left box, as you're looking at the screen) but is there anything else I should know? I believe I read somewhere that overall weapon speed depends on which weapon is placed on your character first. Or am I out of my mind? The Frenzy Barb I'm playing now (level 25) is mostly just for practice and to gather a little wealth for future characters, but I would greatly appreciate any advice regarding this current Frenzier or any future ones. Thanks!
