Hardcore Barbarians So I have a hardcore barbarian. He's 27, and plays with a meteorb sorc, a skelemancer, and a fanaticsm zealot. We play on players 8. Up until now I was planning to go frenzy, but I was thinking about hell mode and wondering if I'd be alright without a shield. Sure, I hear a lot of guys say frenzy is great, but it's all SC. If I do need a shield for hell, would whirlwind be a good way to go? I don't know how whirling affects blocking - can you even block when you whirl? I guess I could use concentrate as well. Anyway, any thoughts? Is frenzy a deathwish in HC?
