    ETH BoTD CB or ETH BoTD Zerker?

    I was planning to make your standard PvP whirlwind barbarian...so I ask my friends which is better...the BOTD CB or BOTD Zerker...and they tell me CB....now when i look mySELF, CB is weaker and a little slower than zerker.

    Why did they tell me to use the CB? because it looks cooler? Is there any benefit for a barb using the CB than the axe? I already am lvl 37 or so and spent my points in maxing sword mastery....should i remake to be an axe barbarian?? CB is range 3 and zerker is range 3, right?

    I hope I don't have to remake..but if I must than I must... :hanky:

    well technically zerkers are superior or equal to cbs in everyway except one:
    cbs can be used 2 handed if you wish, other then that id sayget a zerker if u can although i wouldnt bother remaking ur barb if u already have the cb.

    Berserker axe is better. Yeah you have the 2h utility of a CB, but in reality you will hardly ever use it for that purpose. Higher damage, faster base speed and lower reqs make the berserker the prime choice.

    Looks are in the eye of the beholder. After a while you see so many eth botd cb's and zerkers that appearance doesn't matter anymore.

    It's a matter of taste. Everyone knows I'm a huge supporter of the berserker axe, as it's clearly the best one-handed weapon around, thanks to the reqs, speed, and damage. However, for a whirlwind barb, the speed doesn't matter, since both the berserker and the CB hit the last whirl break with BotD. The two-hand use utility for caster fights does make the cb very nice as well, though you just have to think about whether you want more constant 1-h damage, or less 1-h damage, but extra damage against casters.

    dont forget in pubs is best to always use a shield because if some melee sees you they will chase you down.

    Most public duels are in Hell, so when you take off your shield, you are most likely losing some resists, which doesn't work well with the 2h philosophy vs casters...
