    collection of axes / 2h axes: what barb build?

    Hi,
    Playing generally solo untwinked, I face now quite a nice collection of axes on different charact not serving their purpose.
    I only see a barb that could use them efficiently, but I 'm wondering what kind of barb should I go for. Specifically for these 2h axes that cannot serve a frenzy.

    Please don't ever think mentionning these BOTD, or huge gears CTA, CoH with duped runes, I don't even have enigma. If this time I decided to mule, I will still play with what I found.

    Here is the current collection
    Early 1h axe:the gnasher, Deathspade,
    2h : The Chieftain, Brainhew, Humongous

    Mid 1h : Butcher's pupil,
    2h: Stormrider, the Minotaur

    Late 1h: Razor's edge,
    2h : Ethereal Edge

    I got also 2 sets of Scalpers, but I dont know if axe mastery is working on them when used in melee.
    Otherwise, I have also 2 rares with +barb skills
    Thanks for any advise for a player on Europe.

    Those two handed axes are crap.

    a conc barb or frenzy barb would do well with razors edge or pupil.check the guides.

    An enchantress or fury druid would be better for 2h axes. They could make good use of the Ethereal Edge.

    Eth edge is not THAT bad, but yea id make a frenzier with razors and pupil upgraded, he should do nicely. Also a axe conc or zerker barb would do pretty well with the razor.

    Are the scalpers working with axe mastery when not thrown?

    Thanks for the tips.
    I have a mace frenzy currently. No bad and quite fun to play, despite I prefer my trapsin (25K/sec).
    Maybe I go for a conczerker barb, with a shield/axe and 2h axe on other set up to switch easily.
    With Guillaume's face , venomgrip (i know, it's crappy) and razors, i will have 40% CB, 75% DS, 50% CS.
    Shaft /Lionheart for mid-age and Bane from lvl 85, Sigons boots and belt + angelset for LL. I think I can get these MSLE down as well.

    For synergies i plan up to lvl 85 (96pts)
    20 shout
    20 BO
    1 BC

    17 axeM
    5 NR
    20 conc
    5 Bersek

    8 prerequisite then to axeM or Bersek or after lvl85.

    "Are the scalpers working with axe mastery when not thrown?"

    When you throw the axes they use throwmastery when you melee with them they use the appropriate mastery in this case axe mastery.
