    Help with WW Barb Gear!

    Priority: Mana/Life Leech
    Priority 2: Magic Find

    Hoping that he can do Hell Pits without much problem.

    His weapon will be Tomb Reaver. The rest I dunno.

    err.. try this,
    helm: arreats face
    amulet: angelic wings (combined with the ring, you'll have tons of AR)
    ring one: ravenfrost (CBF)
    ring two: angelic halo
    armor: what?!? you've got enigma?? lucky you
    belt: glooms trap (mana leech)
    gloves: laying hands (more +% dmg to demons, improve your killing speed, can be swap with chance guards)
    boots: gore rider (CB, DS, OW)

    and lots of mf charms :)

    I was thinking...

    Helm: Arreat's Face
    Amulet: Angelic Wings
    Ring: Ravenfrost/AngelicHalo
    Armor: Skullder's Ire
    Belt: Wilhelm's Pride
    Boots: WT
    Gloves: Chance Guards

    But this way, my resists will suck. Does it matter? I dunno, is that enough mana leech to sustain WW? I really don't know! Argh! :grrr:

    Here's what I use on mine (MFing the pits, so resists don't matter much, but there are all positive)

    Tomb Reaver
    PTopaz Stealskull
    PTopaz Skullder's
    Angelic Halo / Wings
    Ravenfrost
    Chance Guards
    War Travs
    String of Ears

    For the record, I blatantly copied LprMan's gear setup. I find it to be pretty effective though.

    You need some mana leech, but that's about it. You're doing tons of damage per whirl. However, I don't think your proposed setup (SeD) has any. Unless I'm missing something. You should EASILY have positive (if small) resists in Hell with Arreat's + Natural Resists + 3x Anya quests. Add a Tomb Reaver and your resists should really be perfectly fine. Especially on a character with tons of life.

    Try it out

    For the pits you don't need much resistances, most damage dealt by monsters is physical there.

    A alternative set with more leach/resistances could be Tals helm/armor/belt (at the cost of a few skill points).

    EDIT: @Gohanman: The Wilhelm's Pride has 5% dual leach
    EDIT2: Damn, I forgot the dual leach/mf on steelskull. Yep good alternative as well.

    Well your resists will not suck so much. Assuming that you have all resist quests and 1 point in natural resist your resist will be, with BC on:

    - 30 quests
    - 30-50 tomb reaver
    - 30 arreats
    - 40 natural resist (lvl 5 with gear and BC)
    - -100 hell
    ---------------------------------------------
    - 60-80

    About the leech I think massive tomb reaver damage with about 5 mana leech would be enough.

    AR wont be an issue on the pits once you get to lvl 80+, then you can switch angelic combo for some ar gc or even better sharp gcs. Use the amu and ring slots to your feelings, maybe some mf, maybe some res...

    Is there any way you might go without the angelic ammy/ring?

    Things that might be worth thinking about...
    Lavagout- IAS, ctc Enchant (needs backup attack to activate?)
    Metalgrid- AR + resist
    Seraph's Hymn- +2skills boosts your passive bonuses (including resist, AR and damage), and has AR vs demon/undead
    Crescent Moon amulet- all mana problems solved
    Battle Cry skill- Reduces def, works against bosses I think...
    Eth and Gul runes- self explanatory
    Tal's Guardianship- ** MF and 40 res all
    Blessed Aim or Rogue merc- It's not like barbs desperately need the other auras anyway.
