Clean Slate Barb Build! Hey, I'm totally new to these forums but I really like what i've seen so far. Anyways, i'm sort of a battle.net diablo II LoD rookie and i'm looking for some advice. On single player diablo i've really liked the barb so lately i've been building a polearm WW barb but from researching it more i believe i spread out my stat points too much and invested too much into ironskin. That barb is level 69 with a decent 230dmg polearm. I started a new barb recently and here's his situation: Level 53 Str 97 Dex 38 Vit 100 Stat points accumulated: 100 (waiting to be pumped into attributes) Skill points accumulated: 34 (waiting to be put into skills), i already maxed BO Now, i'm not sure what to do with this guy. Some people tell me to go for a titan barb with nothing but strength and some people tell me to pump it ALL into vitality. My main goal with this guy is to build a barb which performs the best in ACT 5 hell mode. So what should i be looking to do with this guy? WWbarb? berzerk barb? conc barb (like i see as a sticky at the top of this section)? The items i was planning to use go as follows: Arreat's face, steelrend, war traveler, thundergod's visor, leviathan, BOTD war pike. If i'm correct, all those items should give me enough STR to equip leviathan no problem, not even having to touch my str as it sits now at 97. But i still don't know which route i wanna take. So like i said, any suggestions on the best barb to build for act 5 hell mode pleasure? I was kinda thinking of spear mastery but i'm open to suggestions it's just that the 1200-1300 max damage of a BOTD war pike sounds attractive Especially with a lil life and mana leech ring perhaps. Thanks for any input and your opinion. PS: If you've had experience with any type of high level barb and would suggest avoiding it plz let me know.
