help with conc barb

hi all. i'm making a conc barb and besides halciet guide i can't find anything else that can give me another opinion. i was wondering if it might be better to use a two handed weapon for more dmg cuz the build is meant to give u enough def to drop the shield.

A shield does alot more than just add defense. The main point to a shield is the blocking. A shield with high dex can reduce the physical damage you receive by 75% (depends on the blocking rate and the number of mobs attacking you and their attack speed). You'll take alot more damage without a shield.

One of the huge benefits of using the concentrate skill is you dont get block-locked... but you still get the damage reduction of blocking.
