    Debate Thread, What is most powerful Barb and gear?

    If you could only have one char and it had to be a barb, what would your gear/skills/items look be?

    I am thinking Haciet's Conc Barb but IK WW sounds tempting too.

    If pvm (this is for sp playing solo), my barb would have to be a glass one using berserk with maxed battlecry, surviving only through use of warcry, leap attack and taunt. Then add some limitations: maximum base vit = 75, uses what is found... i like a challenge

    both pvp and pvm.

    I am tired of the IK on everyone, what about Arreats and other items?

    I guess a top char for pvp would do fine in pvm, thereby go BvC barb :p only REAL weakness would be BvB barbs I guess.

    Wolf barb effective in PvP? I can't see how, he will only be able to use ordinary attack and the only benefits from being in wolf from are high fhr and high life (as the barb didn't already had those ;)) and furthermore the wolfbarb looses a lot in fbr which mean he'd have to go two handed and so forth he'd be pretty much toasted versus other melee classes and to slow to catch the casters, since you can't tele or leap in wolfform :p

    I always loved spear or polearm titans for pvm. Choose either BotD ghost spear or BotD great poleaxe, pump all ur pts in strength, and just go on a killing rampage :). Those are not good at all at pvp though, so if u wanted best of both worlds id go with a axe wwer, dual wielding grief + beast, holds his own in pvm and pvp too.

    Though the fact is the most powerful all around barbarian is a whirler, with well-placed stats and the typical gear that you'll find listed in almost every guide here. The last 20 points would go in different places depending what exactly you were aiming to do (bvc, bvb), but all and all, whirlers are where it's at.

    ww barb, whether is pvm or pvp.

    pvm: titan barb
    pvp: vita barb

    concentrate barb may be fun to play but it does not kill faster than ww barb.
