    help on pvp barb

    i need some advice on how to build a pvp barb that can go up against ww barbs, so far i figure max block and 50 dr, obviously, but i also hear that the only kinds of barbs that can stand up to ww'ers are other ww'ers, so is that the way to go? also, whats the best kind of weapon to use in such a case, in terms of achieving the most damage and being able to hit some ww breakpoints and so on....

    thanks in advance for any help.

    by the way this i will be in hc, so i know vitality is key.

    So far what you have sounds good. Speaking from a ww barb, conc barbs are a lot tougher than other ww barbs. When you take into account barbs who already have high def + conc which has huge def bonuses, ww doesn't land very often and usually takes too much mana. After about 5-6 ww's, you run out of mana and haven't leeched really much back and the other barb will most likely be at ~ 70% health if not more.

    I'd really suggest going conc barb if your main target is bvb.

    Good luck with that. I made a lvl 85 conc baba for bvb with the best equipment possible. He still got his *** handed to him by ww barb. Thus I made ww barb. I'll feel free to show you why ww > conc for bvb just msg me at *eZeRieL[LND] on useast non ladder.

    Why not just max concentrate and WW?

    Make a build like this:

    Max Battle Orders
    Max Whirlwind
    Max Concentrate
    Max Shout
    Max Weapon Mastery
    1 Nat Res
    1 Iron Skin
    1 Howl
    1 Battle Command
    1 Bash
    1 Stun
    1 Berserk
    1 Leap
    1 Leap AttacK

    Sure its going to take alot of leveling but its possible.

    For a WW weapon / Concentrate weapon you should get either BotD CB or BotD Zerker because they both hit the WW BP and range 3, but I prefer zerker for a better 1h avg. damage and needs 22% less IAS then CB for 9fpa with concentrate.

    For your other gear (using Botd Zerker)

    Armor: Ethereal Arkaines Valor w/ Zod or Enigma Sacred Armor
    Helm: Upgraded Arreats (If ladder) w/ 40/15ias
    Amulet: Highlords
    Shield: Stormshield w/ 40/15ias
    Boots: Upgraded Gores (If ladder)
    Ring1: 250/20 Raven
    Ring2: 250/20 Raven or Dual Stat/Life/Attack Rating
    Gloves: Upgraded Gouts (If ladder) or Ogre Gauntlets (If you manage to get a glitched valor w/ 40/15ias on non-ladder)
    Belt: 40/15 Verdungos

    Switch:
    HotO (3skills 10dex 40resists 40fcr) or +3 warcries weapon
    HotO (3skills 10dex 40resists 40fcr) or +3 warcries weapon
    Demon Limb for Enchant (some consider this cheap)

    Good for getting your warcries in quick and resists for incase someone wants to NK you

    Charms:
    Fine Small Charms of Balance until 86 FHR (3/20/5)
    Sharp Grand Charms of Vita (10/75/40)
    Fine Small Charms of Vita (3/20/20)
    Annihilus (1/20/20/10)

    Stats:
    136 Strength Base
    202 Dexterity Base
    242 Vitality Base
    10 Energy Base
