    How useful is Death?

    I found a 5os eth colossus sword and am thinking about making a Death for my sword barb. I was wondering how useful it is. I figure it would be good for frenzy and doing Ubers, but what about ww and pvp? How does attack speed work with frenzy and ww? Does it just take the speed of the weapon in your right hand? So could I use a Grief pb with the Death cs and reach top speed with ww?

    Thanks for the help!

    The speed on each individual weapon is checked for WW, so death is not suited there. It works good with frenzy though, check a frenzy build thread to find out how to max the speed.

    Death = awesome of-hand frenzy weapon.

    Don't even think about using it on ww barb.

    So what are the best ww runeword weapons then? Is it better to go 2h, 2 1hs, or 1h/shield?

    Ebotd weapons are typical choices for a whirlwind barb. Griefs can also work if they hit the ias mark for the axes. There are Grief pbs as well, but hardly anyone uses them. Oath is also decent, but eclipsed by Ebotd and Griefs.

    Just go with your playing style. But IMO, a shield is not needed for PvM.. so go with what you like better.

    Note: THESE ARE NOT GUARANTEED TO BE THE BEST IN ALL OCCASIONS

    being 1h+shield, 2h or dual is a matter of preference and situation, here are some good suggestions.

    1h+shield: Grief Berserker axe (ias must be 34+) + stormshield

    2h: eBotD Great Poleaxe

    dual wield: eBotD Berserker + Beast Berserker
