    When looking for Echoing weapons, don't gamble. Instead, shop Larzuk. Essentially, go to him, check out his items, and then hit the WP to an area in Act 5 (frigid highlands, for example) and go back. His items will change. This way, you only spend the gold you need to, and you can easily pick which items type you want for your echoers.

    thanks crg. i did start out shopping larzuk but after about half hour of jumping in and out of that wp i was overcome by delirium, and switched to gambling instead.
    im still not sure though, can you get +barb skills and +warcries on the same weapon?

    You cant get +barb skills and +war cries on a weapon. You can shop the weapons anywhere in Hell for sure and it can spawn on axes too. I just look over weapons when I go to vendors and every once in a while pick another echoing weapon up

    if I may ask, what do you plan to do with your echoing swords?

    - if you plan to have a +6 warcries on weapon switch to buff up, I think that would be a worthy investment
    - if you plan to build a singing barb though, most, if not all the guides I've gone through recommend dual wizardspikes for the 150% res all, 100% FCR, +4 mana per clvl, +30% max mana and +30% mana regen. The 150% res all also leaves your barb with a lot of flexibility for the other equipment slots.

    FYI just in case. :)

    You can't get +barb skills and +war-cries on the same weapon. IIRC, you can get the +war-cries mod on most 1-H weapons (besides daggers). Also note the dex req :) You might not be able to equip a winged harpoon etc.

    It is possible to spawn a +3 war-cries, +3 BO/shout barb helm though. Good luck finding it though, your best bet is cubing one :)

    thanks all

    have my answer.
    @neckromancer, the swords are on switch for +6 warcries before i shapeshift.
    @sunbearie, im pretty much stuck with the wolfhowl for this build, but i have several +3 to war cry/battle orders helms with 2 and 3 open sockets. one with +3 war cries +3 shout and +3 bo with 2 open sockets would be good enough to base a new build on i think.
    @twoflower i never even thought of throwing spears, but i dont think my dex would be high enough anyway.
    ---
    my wolfbarb has his +6 warcries now. he has 4412 life and 27680 defence. in 1 more level he will equip an azurewrath phaseblade and become unstoppable.
    thanks all. dune
