Well I'd also wager that your gear is pretty high end, and that you know what you're doing with barbs.luis19 said:my barb was originally bvc but i changed to max block, keeping low strength.
this is bva, low strength + max block.
so far, 2 barbs i have failed to beat, and only 1 more has been able to beat me (we go 50/50).
BvB barbs I'd imagine use Fort or Duress instead of Enigma since they have no need for the kind of mobility that Enigma grants. They also have no need for fcr, are built with max block in mind, and aim specifically at having a high def and high ar. BvA barbs will most likely have less ar, less def, and use Enigma. They will switch out their fcr gear in favor of damage/ar gear most likely in a fight with a BvB.nickalisk said:i meant to say is: i have a BvA barb, what are the diffrences in skill and stats of BvB barbs as compared to BvA barbs? Who will Most likely win, and what strategies besides whirling around is there?
Only against BvB barbs would you use Widowmaker. Against a BvC barb you will most likely be shredded if you use a Widowmaker since you lose all block with the bow out and they will no longer be afraid to telestomp you because they know you won't be doing much damage with the bow. You are using the Widow because BvBs either can't tele or tele very slowly.nickalisk said:so only vs other barb do i use Widowmaker....what about vs other melee like smiters and such? how do i distinguish a pure melee barb vs a BvC one or a BvA one?
or do i just use my lil bow vs all barbs in general?
