Delerium... why not??

I must admit that my use of the forums is quite infrequent, but why is it that Arreats face hold the number one spot?? The 11% chance to confuse on delerium provides me with much more protection than the Brilliant stats of AF...
I agree that the morph is annoying, but with access to a wolfhowl or beast I find it to be acceptable!

arreats provides life leech, resist, fhr%, skills(+2 barb, +2 combat), good def, attack rating and also cheap price (what more could you ask for? except dr%) compare to delerium.

But with a fairly fast attack rate delerium will make sure that you don't need much defence... Attract to start up and then confuse... What good is godly stats against not getting hit?

That "Terror" when struck mod would get pretty old too. Not ideal for a meleer IMO, but a neat helm.

i think its just much better on a strafer, for keeping the monsters away, and the delirium just casts when struck right ? so dont get struck, and dont morph. But still might be nice on melee, only the terror is not so super. But a plus is that u can place it in a barb only helm. for more bo or frenzy or whatever ur using

Chance to strike effects (YOU attacking) do NOT work with whirlwind. If you are using delirium on a whirler you are wasting your time. On a frenzy barb or concentrate barb who can be surrounded easily i could see the use in it, especially for rapid triggers of confusion.

Arreats is the undisputed champion & for obvious reasons.Confuse isnt that necessary,if you are killing fast. Its a decent mercenary helmet,but then again interferes with decripify at times if you have reapers on him,which is arguably the best merc weapon for melee barb builds.

A good use for delirium is in prebuff barb helmets with +to shout & bo.

Delerium is great for white helms which have other +skills on it, but only for warcry barbs or skill-latent builds, since, well, Arreats takes the win in all other fields.

Nothing can ever compare to the stats of AF.... i completely agree.. but.. what do you do when facing 50+ flayers and so many knights that you wouldn't be able to count them if you tried... + oblivion.. on 8 players... imo the only thing you can do is to put on delerium..

*G* perhaps i should start a kult..

non-ww pvm = delirium
pvp and ww = AF
So you would rather have confuse than lifetap or decrep? If you get IM'ed you're dead anyway, and in every other situation lifetap/decrep is way better than confuse for a decent barb.

Arreat WINS in both pvp and pvm....
if you get IM'ed by those knights... just howl and the group will run off and use zerk and kill the knight...... or if you are surounded by a group and about to die, use howl again... nice crowd control skill, you don't need confuse or whatever.....

Delirium is only good for prebuffing. Other than that, it has very limited uses, even in PvM. Just simply look at the stats on Arreats. What more could you ask for??

1 thing delerium has over arreats is you can have a higher bo and shout level with them. arreats face gives 2 to all barb skills and 2 to combat skills (4 skills) but delerium can give you 2 to all skills. So you can have a nice 5 points to the skills of your liking. Making it a good bo prebuff helm. But then again one day I might just find a echoing barb helm with 3 to bo and shout then poop a brick in my pants.
