    Classic PvP Barb

    Alright guys. Forget my PvP Conc Barb thread. I just can't keep up with "new-age" dueling. Now, I'd like to convert back to Classic. I feel that I have a better chance with that than this stuff. Lol. :( But, anyway, back to business, can you please help me with a Classic WW PvP Barb? Thanks alot guys.

    *I am the Thread Necromancer! Here to ansewer your question about D2C WW Barb!*

    12x high IAS Naga -req if at all possible O_O/ 2xx Anc. Axe must have -30 req (bvb bvz bvp/bvcaster)
    Rattlecage/Hawkmail/ 60 life light armor*pruby it too* (bvb bvp/bvs/bvz bvn)
    Goblin Toe/30frw boot( try to have 2x cold/lit res on this) (bvb bvp/rest)
    Bloodfist
    20 str 60 life 1-4 cold damage belt (try to have 2x cold res/lit res on this)
    3x P. Ruby Helm (any low str)
    Angleic Wings
    Angelic Halo
    Angelic Halo
    30/20 Grim Shield or Tower Shield with +max damage if at all possible/The Ward unique gothic shield/ 2h vs caster
    (bvb bvp/bvz/ 2h vs caster)

    Str: ~150 (need 120 str for naga ~~ you NEED that anc axe with -req!)
    Dex: Base
    Vit: PUMP
    Ene: lol?
    Mastery:20
    Whirl:20
    BO:20
    Bash:1
    Leap:1
    Leap Atk:1
    Stun:1
    Conc:1
    Howl:1
    Shout:1
    B. Com:1
    I.Skin:1
    In. Stam:1
    Nat Res:5
    Inc Speed: pump till you don't want to lvl your char anymore

    this is mostly for BvB (as you will see much of it in D2C)
    but it includes gear setup for otehr classes as well

    *The Competition*
    Amazons are fairly uncommon in classic pvp, but are mostly lit java
    Sorceresses are almost exclusively Blizzard
    Necromancers are almost exclusively bonemancers (watch out!)
    Barbarians are ALL WW and the duels are a toss up. depends on who blocks better//has more life *defense is hardly an issue with the classic whirlwind*
    Paladins like to spam those "HaMmOrZ" at you.. sometimes you find the occasional charger, but rarely

    the cb is added after damage, so you really wanna shred the spammerdin in one pass~ use the 50% cb

    I know tihs is fairly simplistic and i havent really explained *strategy* for classic or the how-to-and-why-fors of the gear selection.. but I'm kinda lazy

    heck, i just went from classic back to LoD
    if you have any questions, PM me ;D

    In 1.09 i had a classic bvb barb, and defence and ar are far from obsolete, in fact i ended up with more in dex than strength because of the defence and ar, and dex doesnt even have anything to do with blocking in classic. Unless alot has changed in 1.1 i would think you are wrong. Also for bvb use 2 of three of these sets, sigons gloves and shield, hsarus boots and belt, and angelics. Max shout iron skin battle orders ww then mastery last. Basically to be successful in classic you have to use dupes also. For armor get carrion carpace or dire carpace (carrion if your goin low str).

    classic bvb *mostly* 50 cbers, so they would have lower def than your average pvm barb on the average (2k on the average). angels takes care of ar right there. read harder, then go bvb in 1.10 hc classic
    ps. mark input please?
