Hardcore WW Barbarian Help

I am building a WW Barb for my group that plays on Hardcore. There is usually three of us, and we only play LAN so my gear is all luck of the draw, no outside trading. My biggest question is what weapon mastery to go for, I went with mauls for Normal, since they are easy to obtain and you can't really go wrong on Normal. Later on however what should I respec for? Should I tailor my character differently because it's hardcore? If so, how?

All help is appreciated, again my main problem is what weapon type, but any help is useful.

Re: Hardcore WW Barbarian Help

build around a different skill, concentrate would be my suggestion (though i honestly prefer zerk). what are your teammate's builds? are you going to need to be doing tons of damage or just be able to take it. you also dont really need more than one point into whatever mastery for a good chunk of norm/nightmare so i'd pick 2 or 3 so that if you find a good weapon you can easily swap. after you get some better idea as to what gear you're going to have (late NM, early hell) respec around that.

That is what I was wondering, what weapons should I use as I level up, just whatever comes by? Or should I try to use the same weapons I'll be using later on, like poleaxes or spears. I'm doing WW because it's fun, so I'd rather not switch.
