    Conc barb questions

    I am pondering making a conc barb and had a few questions before I get into it too far.
    The obvious question is whether this will be viable against ubers. It seems like it should be since I should have killer resists, great life/def and good but not great dmg.
    What weapon should I be looking to use? Greif Z? Ebotdz? anything that's not so pricey that I should try?
    What armor should I use? I read the conc barb guide and it suggested coh or enigma, but wouldn't I be better off with fort? Seems like the dmg, def and life would kick butt for this build.

    Thanks in advance for the advice..

    not as good as frenzy, but it will work with the right equipment (ie. lots of crushing blow, tons of resists, life tap is a good idea)

    armor choice i would say at least use coh for meph, due to his conviction aura that knocks your resists down 125%

    not really sure about the weapon. i think you should be ok with something that is fast, has high damage, and is one handed b/c shields are needed. if you can, try using ber runes in your weapon for more crushing blow

    The best attack speed you can get is 9 frames with any 1 hander. I would suggest either greif phase blade for great damage, or ebotd zerk for lower min damage, but you get a bit more range.

    Its hard to get 9 frame attack speeds without weapons that dont have alot of +ias on them already. Stick with the fastest you can get.
