    I'm playing a Concentrate barb right now and he's pretty good. You'll never be a mean killing machine (unless you have acces to über godly runewords) but he can definitely hold his own. It's very viable as a main attack, but quite slow which is very annoying, especially if you are used to Zeal/Frenzy/Fury. The extra defence is lovely though, he is very very though and with a decent shield (Stormshield:)), max block and max resists he can tank almost everything.

    It all depends on your playing style, if your thing is to mow down hordes of monsters on p8 then Concentrate barb is probably not for you...

    thanks for the input chimiara, and ashhousewares/middleman, i have read every concentrate barb guide/build/ino i could reach, including hal's concentrate barb, i believe the next thing after reading a build is asking for opinions of those who tried it, to identify any pros/cons on the build, if you dont have anything informative to say you dont need to post at all.

    Tastychiken_europe, what frame attack should i reach to reach a decent killing speed on a conc barb? whats the ias? thx

    It depends on what weapon type you use...If you check Hal's guide again you'll find IAS breakpoints for Colossus Blades and Berserker Axes...

    10 frames is a good starter point to shoot for, and should be manageable...9 frames is the max, but a bit more difficult to attain.
