    Frenzy > Berserker in the fun department

    Parked my Berserker at 82 in the Flayer Jungle and figured I'd try Frenzy.

    YAY!

    Less potion management, less incoming damage and less need for FRW on equipment.

    CTC on attack Novas & Chain Lightning while leveling!

    Same crowd control strengths, less weaknesses and more FUN!

    Also, if you're gonna play for a while, set a repeating timer on a wristwatch to go off every hour, then do 10 pushups, 5 squats and 5 pull-ups every time it beeps. Proper form at http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/CrossFit_DevelopingPushup.mov WFS

    NOT EXTREME ENOUGH!

    Ditch the game, go FULL RETARD POWER!

    In other words, set your timer to ONE MINUTE and do ten thousand pull-ups WHILE ALSO LIFTING YOUR HOUSE!

    Repeat until you are FULLY JACKED BRO!

    (but yeah, frenzy is definitely more fun)

    My single tree Masteries Barb is currently in Act 2 Hell and is using Frenzy granted by a helm. He is wearing:

    "Delirium" Assault Helmet
    "Duress" Archon Plate
    Stormlash
    Carrion Wind
    "Voice of Reason" Scourge

    These give:

    14% Chance to cast level 13 Terror when struck
    6% Chance to cast level 14 Mind Blast when struck
    1% Chance to cast level 50 Delirium when struck
    11% Chance to cast level 18 Confuse on striking
    15% Chance to cast level 10 Static Field on striking
    20% Chance to cast level 18 Tornado on striking
    10% Chance to cast level 10 Poison Nova when struck
    8% Chance to cast level 13 Twister on striking
    18% Chance to cast level 20 Ice Blast on striking
    15% Chance to cast level 13 Frozen Orb on striking

    Plus:

    48% CB
    33% OW

    FUN!!!

    ...wow. Holy fireworks, batman.

    I just, uh, found out that I had apparently forgotten to check the "Hardcore" box when I created this Frenzybarb. Imagine my surprise when all of a sudden the title "Slayer" popped up after killing Baal.

    Ooops.

    How is frenzy a fun skill? Hold down rmb, watch tv, adjust mouse when necessary.

    Especially in 1.13 where IM isn't even a concern I fail to see how a frenzy barb would even be remotely challenging.

    Yawn.

    Play a thrower. At least you have to make a trip to town now and again to refill throwing stacks.

    I suppose. Nice runewords and gear and stuff. I just re-booted my D2X playing sans the old ATMA files, so gear is an issue and me getting bored running Meph for gear is another issue.

    I guess I just thought playing a "Berserker" would be more about going 'berserk' and just running around walloping stuff, and less the intricate Crowd-Control/War Cry dance. Oh well. And shields on barbs just make me sad.

    Re: Frenzy > Berserker in the fun department

    You're missing the obvious here: Frenzy+Berserk=ridiculous amounts of fun. Plus, using another skill from time to time keeps Frenzy from being so monotonous. Zeal works, as well, but then I would say that. :badteeth:

    That said, I always found the concept of a pure Berserker or a pure Frenzier rather boring. Each has room for customization, so, and that, combined with 1.13's respec ability, should give you all the leeway you need to tinker around and find a way to play either build that you like.

    I like my WW/Zerk/War Cry barb a lot. Very versatile. And, if I were you, I'd keep the War Cry around for when you get to tougher areas. I definitely needed it, and still need it every time fighting the minions of destruction. I almost got killed about an hour ago.. had it on p3 and didn't hit the war cry right, missed two of them and lister which just about stun-lock-pwned me.
