    It is a long ways to level 81 for those Grandfathers.
    You might want to max Shout before sinking all those points into Double
    Swing. I've been thinking about this myself but with more emphasis on
    War Cry (I have an old level 73 Patriarch I'd like to put two GF's on), so
    I believe it will work. :teeth:

    You'll want to invest in Warcry, as it'll be your main method of crowd control. And, since the stun level doesn't diminish in Nightmare or Hell difficulties, you can have monsters stunned for a reasonably long time, even in Hell.

    I've been building a frenzy myself (currently lvl 48, A1, NM) and I'm partially hijacking this thread to ask my own questions (sorry, Rockyz).

    I'm at a crossroad and I'm trying to figure out what to do. I've been focusing on boosting frenzy at full speed and he's at 19 now. But this has left things like WC, BO, Shout, etc. at very low levels. Which should I boost first? I'm doing the damage, but I get hit way too much so I was thinking Shout.

    Comments?

    I've never played a frenzy barb seriously, but I second Kaysaar that you should put a good investment into warcry for the stun length.

    tragor: Personally, I would get my Battle Orders up.
    I would either concentrate on Shout or War Cry next.
    It's probably best to pick just one. Having played both types
    of Frenziers in 1.10, my preference is maxed Shout. I found
    that Howl worked wonders for crowd control.

    I concur; max BO as soon as possible, and add points into Shout as well...they both snyergize with Battle Command, which has real value in 1.10. I had heard that it increases the number of skill levels when you invest more points into it, but for one point, you can always have +1, and the duration with 1 point, synergy, and some +skill items will be very beneficial.

    Bo, shout and a few points (dont know how many +skillz you will get) in warcry are a very good idea.. esp warcry and his stun lenght are a GREAT help in later stadia of the game.. but then again, with 2 GF's u can invest alot more in Vit s you're life will be absurd high combined iwth a .07 valor and maxed BO :teeth:

    You might want to split the 20 Double Swing into 9 DS and 11 Warcry. 9 Double Swing is swinging at zero mana and 11 Warcy gives around 3 seconds.

    My level 77 HC Frenzy barb died Act II of Hell, he did very good up to that point. (I start not like the FE-Bug)

    Runs off to find a .07 Valor. The last time I made a serious effort at
    it, I quit after about 950 runs with 8 Sazabi Balrog Skins to show for it. :teeth:
