Does tuner barb works well in pvp?

For various testing, a good ww tuner barb would have 5k life after bo and achieve 350str. The dmg on ww is avg. 7k. Do they work well in pvp? bvb?

Tuner barb(350 str)-work best in pvm with 2handers.2handers arent the best solution for pvp,they lack versatility,dualwielding is superior because of 2x attack frequency & moreover, you will be torn up against wep/shield BVB barbs.

Even if you do plan to pvp with 2handers(try it,not that its ineffective,just that dualwield is superior for BVC & wep/shield for BVB),you dont need a high strenght investment,life is of a higher priority.The effectiveness of the extra ed from str is marginalised when pvp penalty & max dr comes in.

My base str dual wielding barb has no problems as far as damage is concerned. I should think that any extra damage that str may give u is overkill also, but sometimes u wish that u could have that 3k extra life :).

Well, in bvb due to max block and high def ppl rarely hit each other between wwing. In this case i assume more dmg is better than more life? Beside, has around 5k life is pretty good against any type of caster beside hammerdin or bonemancer. (even u have 6k life hammer still hurt too much) i dont concern that zealot will even hit u if u have proper ww. btw, no need 2h weapon in this situation.

the difference between 350 and 200 str is alot!

I know if both players use lifetap then whoever dishes out more dmg will win.

I dont know, just my opinion.

That is true, against a character using magic damage like hammers or bone spirits/spears the difference between 4k and 6k life is a matter of seconds at best (unless the casting dueler is an idiot who can't aim).
