FHR from gui's helm is usually enough. As for AR, you can try Hsaru's boots/belt. You lose some deadly strike from gore's but improve greatly on AR. Angelic ring/amulet is nice, but you'd have to drop highlord's for that and that's kinda.. sucky.

I have 6k AR (mostly charms) and can hit most stuff no problem.

i would say 10k ar should be more than enough pvm, you should be aware that your level also helps to improve chance to hit quite a bit
with the same AR you will notice a considerable improvement in hitting between a level 70 char and lvl 90

if you still got trouble, you can improve ar with these:
- demon limb on switch for enchant
- 2x ravenfrosts if you don't use them yet
- 1xx ar charms
- angelic ring+amu combo for +1xxx ar
- metalgrid

Weapon type can have a big affect on hitting too, what are you ww'n with?
Also, I wouldn't give up any items so I could have higher FHR, it doesn't really
do much for you while your in ww.

Ok thx for the tips ... i use Ebotd BA along with highlord 1 raven and dual leech ring

havent played much melee chars and this barb is fun he isnt that good but he get the job done and almost never lose health ^^ but he miss so much against bosses so hmm i dunno :S

oh and should i invest in Conc when i have maxed shout/bo/Inc lvl skill/WW
or maybe iron skin or nat res ?? i have full res and 14k def so how much a diff will some points in iron skin make ?

Ah, Bosses. Yeah I use the same weapon, similar ar. I thought you were talking monsters in general. Bosses, like Baal or Ubers are a problem with ww since you can't leach off them effectively. You can boost ar like LeoHappy was sayin but still leach is an issue- get potions. I can't be bothered so I use
zerk or conc (1 pt to skill) which will still have typically higher ar/damage then ww maxed and little leach needed. Also, LoH, is pretty sweet for making your hits count and will help you hit a solid conc/zerk attack speed breakpoint, should you choose to remove highlord for higher ar. I'm not a big fan of Hybrid on skills, I think it could be a waste depending on what you wanna do with the barb in the future. If you use LoH, Highlords, Botd, 2 x (40%ed/15%IAS) jewels you'll hit the last speed breakpoint for conc/zerk and that alone will make you a little hybrid with out having to mess up skills to do so.

edit:i prefer tap on drac's for uber'n

hell bosses usually have about 50% dr and 50% block so they're more difficult to kill with melee (chars using elemental dmg have a considerable advantage here)

if you want to kill bosses better i recomment merc with reapers toll polearm (decrepify) which will negate their dr, slow them down etc
