    Hardcore Barbarian

    I've started a Hardcore Barbarian in my attempts to Hardcore one of every character. What is a good build?

    I've already done a Hardcore Thrower, and got him to level 56, but then he died and I was too jaded to do it again. And no Frenzy... done that to death.

    Any suggestions?

    Dont make a barb. You'll regret the fact that you didn't spend you're time making a sorc or a character who can actually kill.

    Little bit o' info: A singer with full synergies will, at the following lvls of Warcry, deal an average PvM damage and stun length of (normal diff.):
    Code:
    Warcry lvl:  Damage:  Stun length:
            20     ~ 841       4.8 sec
            25     ~1067       5.8 sec
            30     ~1312       6.8 sec
            35     ~1574       7.8 sec
            40     ~1853       8.8 sec
    
    Point: Warcry can deliver quite decent damage with alot of +skills and fast cast rate! With the long stun effect, a point or two in berzerk for the PIs makes for a nice complement too!

    Ive had success with Sword/Shield Whirler (yes, he can kill), and a thrower. Ive started a frenzy barb as well.

    You need a good weapon to survive as a barb, or just alot of Crushing Blow. They can kill, just not as fast as the overpowered casters.

    My ChaoTitan can kill quite fast in NM baal runs. He is level 70 now and uses level 1 whirlwind and dual "steel" military pick to avoid IM. Killing depends on high CB and OW. Everytime I whirl into oblivion knights groups, I would receive more damage if they apply decrepfy me (as compared to IM me).

    Since he only need 1 in WW and none in weapon mastery, he have enough points to max iron skin, natural resist, BO and shout as endgame.
