    Enigma OR BOTD???

    Since im kinda poor, my rarest item is a hoto for my hammerdin...
    but now im kinda getting into barbs, so do u think i should trade my hoto 4 enigma or hoto for botd?
    Im leaning more into the Botd, but i really have no good armor unless i upgrade Shaftstop..
    But then agian i have no good barb weapons.. so i need the botd.

    If i get botd ill have more Melee damage,
    and if i get Enigma i would own PvP

    So what do u think?>>>>>>>> :thanks:

    I would go with BOTD, though I doubt anyone will trade a BOTD or Enigma for a HOTO (maybe 2 HOTOs). Enigma is good for strength and tele, but since you have shaft you should be ok without it, just get a choas noose barb nammy with tele and nice stats. The BOTD is more useful to me for the Barby.

    Keep the Hoto and do a Singing Barb?

    Seriously. Enigma won't buy any specific wins. Sure you can teleport but in comparion to a Tele Necro or simliar... well good luck catching him. At all. Your cast rate will be too slow to even give him a sweat.

    BotD is a nice weapon, granted, but there are cheaper options. GFs shouldn't cost too much right now. And (at Europe) some Fury BBs would be quite easy to obtain, they were widely spread in .09 and should still be viable. Combine it with Gore Riders and Highlord's for a nice amount of Deadly Strike.

    Heck, even Baranar's or Upgraded Headstrikers could be sweet, if it weren't for the range.

    Stormlash obviously has range 3 (always thought scourges were range 1 or 2 but obviously it was 3...). So that could be a good weapon too.

    Best anti-caster strategy: Go Hybrid. Dual throw, with deasant attack rate (10 frames and lower) basicly fills the air with javs in no time. With some aim you can be sure a sorc/necro/druid will have to have godly reactions to avoid getting hit.

    I don't think you need Botd/Enigma for a PvP character unless you explictly duell public. But seeing how most players act there, you can just make a lvl 1 barb, stand in town and shout: I win, I win. And then go brag about your perfect winning streak...

    you would own at running away because your weapon sucks :stoned:

    I think getting yourself a weapon is priority 1

    Botd

    I have a BOTD polearm and an Engima on my WW barb. If I had to choose, the BOTD would win hands down. The damage on it is just kickbutt, whereas if I lost the teleport and the +1 skill it's not as big a deal.

    i would do it for botd, dmg is almost everything, sure its good if they cant hit u but if their sitting there tryin to hit u and u cant dmg them ur screwed, overall a wep would be better, when u have shaft +60life and 30%dr, thats good enough considering ur palli can pit run to get more stuff.

    and keep in mind, EBOTD not just Regular, If you going regular route midas well go GF.

    And Enigma's go for pretty damn cheap, 1 rune can get u a decent one, i see ppl trading them for 2" 290's as well

    what resistance is your hoto?
    if its <36 I HIGHLY DOUBT that you will get a good enigma or botd for it.
    if you do go off on a trading spree though, I'd go for botd. Barbs need damage. Armor for barbs isn't a probelm due to ironskin and shout.
    if you trade for a botd look for:
    375%+ed, and etheral
    if you trade for enigma look for:
    archon plates and wyrmhyde's with 1250+def.
    Once again though, I know that the chance of you getting rid of a hoto for enigma/botd is very low.
    I got my 38 to all res hoto for 4 mal runes (really 4 gc's that are worth mal runes) and I got mine cheap.
