Favourite bvb builds

Well Im just curious as to what build of barb people favour for bvb. I absolutely despise the twitchthroe/swordback combo because i dont like the look and i think open wounds is a stupid idea, and because of that i used to get smashed in bvb. In so many bvb games, everyone wears exactly the same setup, except the weapon, and the the winning factor is just weapon damage. :grrr: Anyways thats all changed cos my new naga barb owns all.
He uses a Rare naga, 98-121 damage with AR. Rattlecage, Goblin toes, angelics bling, sigons helm/shield, rare 24fhr 60 life cold damage belt and bloodfists. He is pure vita and he smashes people.
And i have another cool barb, a mauler. I can take any 2h barb unless they walk :p. Uses angelics, amy gcrown, rattle/ornate, gobs/frw boots, bfists, deaths sash/rare 24 fhr 20 str 38 life belt and a 265 martel. He swings in at 1666 damage :D and 3k life!

So peoples what are your barbs ?

I know this link was for BvB builds but I am curious to know of any information on a lance barb. I have no clue on what to max other then bo and Whirl wind. Is it polearms, spears or mauls? I have seen some of both and I am wanting to build a PvM barb for doing cows and hell chaos runs So if you have any advice Ethos or any one else please post.

Thank You
Locke

i pretty much only play classic east ladder atm, and my bvb is pretty godly.

he is lvl 85
he has 4.6k life and 1.5k defense 14k ar 550 ww dmg w/ 50% deadly strike 25 cb and 50 ow. max block.

his gear:
clegaws sword
twitchthroe
s-back
angelic rings/ammy
goblin toe (cb is godly)
clegs gloves (to increase clegs dmg and slow/kb)
deaths sash (cbf, my comp is slow and if i freeze in bvb i die due to lag)
biggins bonnet (30% enchanced dmg ar life/mana)

I have 45 base strngth
base dex
435 vita

when i bo i use a +2 barb ammy and 2x +2 barb wepons

people underestimate him when they see his sword but it does 12x dmg and w/ the deadly strike it is lethal.

Peace Out

See the bolded sections.
That seems pretty impossible.

That is very possible considering this is classic. Classic block is based on what the shield says not dex and character lvl. If a shield says 55 blocking like SwordBack Hold the character would have 55% block throughout the game from lvl x to lvl xx with out a single point of investment.

on classic putting points into dex doesnt increase your block. your block is the block your shield says it is. s-back on a barb is 55% +25% from twitch i have 75% (max) block.

Hmm with that in mind it's probably a good thing that Blizz made block dex and level dependent in later versions. It's already pretty flawed when one stat category (energy) can be ignored no matter what class or build.

Yah its like that in expansion, but in Classic sorc's need mana my static/orber has at least 100. It is like that because of items that don't add as much to mana so you have to compensate for some. You loose the trade off of not puting points into energy over dex and I like being able to block 60-75% with a sorc and not having to put a point into dex.

anyway the thread is meant for people to post their own/their favourite classic bvb build. Not critisize people on information they beleive is false. If you dont know for a fact then kindly keep your mouth shut

thats a nice BvB ^^ 2 bad its nl tho.

a BvB that i thought was ridiclious but actually works is as follows.

300ed bsnap
rattlecage
gob toe
angelic rings/ammy
sigons gloves///helm
+strngth/life/cd belt or deaths sash.

How?

enough life so you wont die in 1-2 whirls

90 cb +high ar (12k+) + 850ish ww w/ critical strike..... can take away around 3k life in a ww. Assuming ur opponent has high life (so the cb hurts more)

OUCH

I am actually making a cheap bvb right now that I am going to wager an item or two that he will be undefeated.

1 word. Cleglaw.

clegs doesnt get very effective till around lvl 70 as the dng is based on ur clvl

it can still kill, but the max dmg will be below 100

No, that is just the common opinion of people who don't understand the cleg build, right now my normal attack does 9-160 at level 26.

If you make cleg bvb build right here is the ADD-ONS you get with that kind of low dmg;

25% crushing blow
50% open wounds
50% deadly strike
21% critical strike
25% slow enemy

It is basically a cold barb, you use a 1-4 cold dmg belt + cleg gloves = you slow the other barbs ww down soo much that they get half the hits on you as they normally would.

I also have 145 vitality at level 26.

50 bucks says I will own.

Isn't it *35% crushing blow?

One bad thing about Clegs is the ridiculously low Minimum damage, and the low low block shield. And, without the shield, you drop 35% Crushing Blow. Kind of annoying.

Yeah, those are reasons I don't use Clegs. The 50% DS is very nice though.

I like a Naga build for BvB. Twith + Swordback + Goblin Toes, then rares for everything else would be ideal.
