    help with pike barb

    Making my first barb in 1.10, ive read thru threads so im thinking it should look like this. this is USeast ladder

    BotD warpike
    CoH archon
    arreats
    verdungo's or Tgods
    Boots (no idea)
    Ammy (no idea)
    steelrends
    ravenfrost
    ring 2 - dono... bk ring maybe?

    Now heres where i really need help. For skill placement i know il be doing

    20 spear mastery
    20 battle orders
    20 whirlwind

    but i dont know where else to put pts. i was thinking of maxing berserk and putting it as my left click attack and have ww as my right click. Also, is shout worth maxing? i know im going to need 1 pt in each of those 4 passives.

    any tips? oh and what are good charms to use, this is ladder so massive max/ar/life charms are out of the question but i could get 20 life sc's in bulk.

    ww with botd war pike won't work, as botd doesn't add enough ias. ghost spear is the only elite spear that can get the max bp with botd, but you can get as much damage with a great poleaxe.

    boots: war travs or gore riders. war travs if you are going titan, gore riders if not.

    ammy: a good rare, or good ol maras.

    rings: bk or soj would add the most damage on a titan. raven is not vital to a ww barb, as chill doesn't seem to matter.

    belt: i like tgods because i hate gloams. verdungos is probably better though if you can't get dam red. somewhere else.

    shout is nice, helps zerk too, so it saves you some points. i like 5 nat res.

    charms: max damage charms are cool, ar and damage. vita if going titans.

    Or, if you have enough ar, Highlord's would be your best bet amulet wise. The +1 skill and % ds will make you do much, much more damage over time, and the 20% ias could help out with conc/berserk when you have to use them. It's got lit resist as well, which is the most important resist to have.

    ah thanks, now its a choice between greatpoleaxe or ghost spear. I think ghost spear has more max damage but a great poleaxe has a higher min...
    I guess il just hold out on a pike barb until i find an ethereal rare pike with 350+ ed, 40 ias, and 2 open sockets with self repair lol. Then i can reach the last ww breakpoint with a pike.

    Il probably go with spear since its got higher max damage and it requires spear mastery, so if i ever do find that pike i wont need to remake.

    Its not gonna be a titan, but i dont see much point in gores since i wont be getting cblow/dstrike from anywhere else. Il just go with wartravs for more stats + damage.

    I disagree about that getting frozen part, i will still use a raven.

    That would kinda be the whole point of wearing gores, just to make sure that you do have DS/CB somewhere. It's really great with whirlers, since they get so many hits overall. Trav's are good too, but generally more functional on single-target characters.
