    help with my conc barb

    ive got 13 points left to put into skills, ive maxed everything but my mastery. what i want to know is what mastery should i max.. (at the moment i cant hit anything, i need some more AR)

    at the moment im using nords tenderizer and am hoping on getting a baranas from someone in the near future.. but neither will probably be my end game weapon..

    what im really hoping for is a stormlash.. realistically what are my chances of 1. finding one and 2. trading for one?

    what i also wanted to know is what would be the next best option for me? because if its also a mace (like my nords or soon to be baranas) i will start maxing mace now.. i was thinking that lightsaber is another option is that better than these maces?

    my end game gear is nearly certain:

    Helm: ???
    Amulet: Highlords
    Weapon: ???
    Shield: Stormshield
    Armour: Stone Runeword
    Gloves: Laying of Hands
    Boots: Gore Riders
    Ring: ???
    Ring: ???
    Belt: ???

    i have the stormshield and the laying of hands and am currently trying to trade for highlords and gore riders..

    as for the rings ive got 2 6% life steals at the moment (poor i know!) but i cant find any better.. my helm isnt bad though (+2 barb skills +BC +Shout) but its only 26 defence and the mods on it are useless (+1 to life!) my belt is tal rashas but im going to give that to my sorc soon (its useless for a barb anyway! .. i just dont have any better)

    so really im only deciding on the weapon (for now) i'l decide on the rings helm and belt later.. has any one got any input that could help me out? i really dont wanna stuff this barb up like my last one!

    The mastery is up to.



    IMO for damage wise you have two choices: Sword or Axe. A guide that I read recommended Axes as apparently the damage is better (plus you can use the Berserker Axe).



    Then again you can possibly utilise Steellash? (or whatever-lash)



    The choice ultimately is yours – nothing says you cannot have a Axe, Sword or hammer Barb! It’s all personal choice.

    i would go with mace then... put 5 points into it and save a couple if you ever change weapons :uhhuh: speaking out of expirience here ^^

    i think i have an extra b-star and IK helm laying in the dust... i'll check that when i get home and send you a pm :)

    regards,
    robin

    have you read Halciet's guide in the barbarian forums?

    its an excellent guide.

    but to answer your questions

    helm - arreats, best barb helm in the game!

    weapon - berserker axe has the good speed and damage, but it looks like a hand axe when you are carrying it ... hence my barb uses a collosus blade instead - swords look so cool!

    rings - ravenfrost, one of the easiest way to obtain cbf, attack rating, and dex bonus

    belt - verdungos! but if you cant get your hands on that, a string of ears does pretty much the same thing.

    items are things just to aim for... any other items should do just fine, read the guide for more details.

    cheers mate, it will help a lot..

    i just had a look at the arreats face and i think im in love! i had a look at it a while back but didnt pay much attention to it, but on second looks its an unbelievable helm, i want one! :) are they hard to find?

    im not sure what rings i should try and get, ravenfrost looks good, but i should only need one?

    Arreats is a godly helm. I beleive it is fairly hard to come by, but I could be wrong.

    Try and get a godly rare, dual leech +resits and you're in heaven.

    just a quick question because im hesitating again on the stone runeword armour, i really wanna make it, but i want to be sure first..

    are there any unique elites (or upgraded unique exceptionals) that are better than stone runeword in a sacred armour?

    and i also have been told to reconsider the crescent moon runeword.. in anyones opinion, is it better than stormlash, baranas or nords?..
