    erm...ouch!

    im sitting there in a daze in my millionth baal run in NM. i got my barb to 72, and i take the TP to the throne an start doing what we barbs do...sit there and wate while the 7 sorces in game kill everything lol

    all of a sudden i look at my red bulb and notice its not very red right now...then it dawned on me that i must be getting attacked but im in a daze or something and dont do jack about it. so im sitting there watching these bone spears go through me and my life bulb is draining and i dont even think to drink a potion...i just thought "isnt this nice, im going to die"

    lol, guess waht, ImmortalBubba was slain by serpent magus (champ pack in throne room) well, lost my IK boots/gloves/belt and that really cool unique helm and bstar, but rest of my gear wasnt good so no big loss i guess!

    neway, back to classic i go until i work up the urge to lvl another barb to 76 and use the I set on him ^_^

    Yeah, melee characters are fun eh?

    Once you get to level 25, you can enjoy the charming atmosphere of baal's throne room from then until level 99. If you are a barb, you get the extra bonus of running around BO'ing everyone until they are satisfied.

    I can see why its so hard to quit this game.

    Heh, I had a well composed rant (which I've presented to prez, and rachelene, and Christor, and ... anyone who will listen) about the problem with melee so I suppose I'll present it now, since it's on topic for once.

    I think that a lot of the problems with melee fighters could be fixed if they redid the formula for which damage synergies are computed. On my barb, I maxed berzerk and found it doing about 1700 max one-handed, with a weapon that did about 250 max listed damage. I maxed all of berzerks synergies, for 10% ed per additional skill point. But I don't get 10% of 1700, i get 10% of 250! That's ridiculous, 25 points of damage per synergy point, where a meteor sorc gets about 300 every time she drops a point. They should make the additional synergy bonus multiply your maxed combat-skill damage (1700), not your weapon damage. I dropped 60 pts into berzerk (which hits one monster) and got about 3500 max damage (with pretty good gear), a sorc that drops 60 pts in meteor gets 10K, applied over area of effect, (with minimal gear), and a backup skill, that does ~4K, area of effect. Hell, shout and zerk is the most disgusting synergy ever... increase my defense just so it's zero when zerking? Frenzy and zerk, now that would be synergy. :thumbsup:

    Another option would be changing the way weapon masteries worked. Make them multiply your damage after everything else is computed. IE, 50% ed from a weapon mastery would multiply your damage by 1.5, not add it in parallel with other %ED ... that's hella weak. That would actually work a lot like sorc masteries anyway. This is a nice option because it gives a lot of power to highly specialized, 1-weapon characters. Not that barbs really switch weapon classes that much.

    :rant:

    Oh well, I know this was just a rant, but I tried to provide some suggestions too.
