    frenzyzerkers

    can they be done?

    what about a guide, should i go with ash's frenzy guide and build up berzerk, or keep it at one point?

    weapons/armor choices for SP PvM will always be helpful. thanks

    Oh yes, you could put more into zerk. You might have to do use zerk anyways for PI's and IM. Ppl don't usually put more than one point into zerk cause the magical dmg synergy is only +1%, whereas taunt/ds gives 8%.

    Or, you could be thinking of charging up your frenzy, then going berserk for the IAS?

    Yeah... I would use the points to boost Frenzy (via a synergy) rather than Berzerk, which you'll only use in rare occasions.

    With all my frenzy builds I've used, my favourite is this.

    Double Swing - 20 pts
    Frenzy - 20 pts
    Taunt - 1 pt
    Berserk - 20 pts
    Battle orders - 20 pts

    Rest into 1 point wonders and and Shout.

    Really, with maxed berserk you get 20% magic damage which is more than enough to knock of PI's. Only time i use berserk is in the chaos sanctuary.
    You don't really need to max taunt as it end game, it only gives you an extra 500 damage or so and if you max all frenzy synergies it really compensates your shouts.

    With a good weapon, I find that even with no added points in Berserk, my barb can take out PIs.

    And as I mentioned before, PIs are pretty rare compared to other monsters. If you find yourself doing "enough" damage, then I guess sacrificing some points into Berserk would be fine.

    I agree. With a good weapon PI's still go down without too much of a problem. And with a good merc they are even easier so if you can use the points elsewhere then you would probably be ok.
