Damage problem

Damage problem

Hi all, I made WW/tele barb, but I have problem with damage and life:

Here is setup:
Skills:
WW 20
Axe M 20
Shout 20
Iron Skin 20
Battle Orders 20

Did I put all stats correctly:
strength 37 (around 200 with enigma and everything)
dextrity 168
Vitality 380
energy 10

Equipment:
Arreats
Ebotd Berserker Axe
Steelrend
Soe
SoJ+bul katos wedding band
Stormshield Enigma
Gore rider
Mara's kaleidoskop

WEll, I have 3700 max damage and around 4000 life, what's problem maybe I should use something else as weapon, other amulets? Any suggestions are apreciated, thank you.

You need a ravenfrost, and Highlord's Wrath instead of mara's. Also, you might want to get some damage charms, and socket ED jewels into your helm and shield. That should boost you up a bit.

Your damage does seem low, however. My whirler with virtually the same gear as you (but not Steelrends, and using the items I mentioned above) has 4726 max whirl damage; maybe you just have a weak BotD?

most ww barbs use LOTS of damage/ar/life scs, which boosts damgae to around 2k more and life to around 2.5-3.5k more. if you cant afford any of those hi end scs, i suggest u just go with plain 20 life scs, if you use 39x of those with a 20 stat anni and you are an all vita barb, you should have around 7k+ life at least

Hmm my ikbarb can dish out 6700 damage.
Is there any particular reason why you use sojs and maras on a barb?!

I just don't get it. They are better off on a sorc.
How can you have so low hp? Again my ikbarb wins with 4000 hp.

EDIT: Well if this is pvp then ignore my poor ikbarb :)

Keep in mind its very hard to get over 4k WW without using mass duped 3/20/20 charms.
What do you mean?
If you use a onehander maybe, but then again maybe this is what we talk about here i don't really know..

The axe has 512 damage max, is this ok,, by the way thank you for advice, I'll try to put on this gear

Plus I have no charms now at all, what charms are good? few grand or many small?


One more question, risk's analysys showed that Fury Zerk/duress setup is the best, concerning damage, I'm now looking for good apropriate berserker axe, how do you think will it help?

I believe the fury/duress combo rocks out in pvp because of the mass open wounds it grants you. For all intents and purposes, I would rather just use BotD, since it has high damage and great all-around stats.

Sorry for my ignorance but what are "scs" and "duped" and "uped" mean, I saw people mentioning it, please explain it to not experienced barb player, thank you.

scs= small charms
duped= an item being cloned, and have a high chance of disappearing
uped= an unique item being upgraded by using the cube formula

That's what I thought, except for "duped, I didn't know what these are.

Recently found +31% damage jewels and inserted in helm and shield, and still the damage is about 3700, but when I put mara's I have nearly 3900, though I have no charms, maybe that's why it's so low?

I would say it's the charms, more than likely. Also, the mara's might add 200 damage or so, but the 33% deadly strike from Highlord's would make you do a tremendously higher amount of damage overall.

Mara's is more for sorcs.

every pvp char depend on charms. Good charms make a HUGE difference if both players have the same gears.

You definitely need to get max dmg charms to achieve higher dmg.

the gross dmg from highlord can simply increase ur dmg by:

4000 x 1.33 = 5320
 
Ok thanks guys, by the way I have put 2 Bul catos rings and I have 4200 life and 3773 or so damage with highlords, I'm still looking for Bers axe, I have found one but it was magic, by the way I found it in one of temples in 3 act, in Upper Kurast I think.
