    How does Barb beat IM and little s****?

    Building a Frenzy Barb and, to date, has been loads of fun to play.

    He is now lvl 70, in NM, trying to level in WSK, and keeps dying from the Oblivion Knights and tiny, very quick and numerous Soul Drainers. My life bottle goes from full to empty in one hit.

    My barb has full resis, loads of life with level 20 BO, and an Act 2 Might merc. What should I do to beat these killers? Hate to give up now on what seems to be an otherwise strong character. I remember using Baranars Star on my pally to overcome the IM issue- what do barbs do?
    Thanks

    Barbs use Berzerk. Thats the way they get through the IM thingy.

    (Maybe throwing weapons on switch and stuff could work out also, but most just go for berzerk and use that)

    Berserk as already stated. IM affects physical damage only. Berserk transforms all physical damage into HUGE magic damage meaning IM will no longer affect you. However, since frenzy is your main skill you should switch to weapon + shield when using berserk. Preferably a high blocking shield because your defense will be set to zero.

    If I ever get round to making a Barb (the only ones I have atm are all mules) I'm going to make a Beserker, purely for the fact that my Shockalot died about 5 or 6 times to IM in the Sanctuary. Then I started playing tactically, and letting my Rogue kill the LIs.
