Drop the unique weaps :)

Ofc they will do for now, but most decent rares ( even magics ) will be better.

Try to shop the magicals at Anya Hell diff. Look for Cruel of Quickness mod, that way you can even WW with them if you want :p.

In rares try to look for, Enhanced Damage ( ofc) , ( Ias ), ( eth/replentish mod) and all the extra goodies ( ar/ma damage on lvl )

yeah rares and magic are nice can spawn with sick mods, also if i remeber correctly the dmg display is stil bugged for a thrower barb so in reality ur doing 1/3 of the dmg i think.

Thanks for the comments,

I don't remember the exact skills, but I have double throw, double swing, bo, and throwing mastery maxed. I have one point into frenzy, a few into inc speed, a few into shout, and same for nat res.

Rabbitz, thing is, I don't really have the time or patience to try to get those from Anya/Malah/Halbu.

I've HAD 2x Cruel Harpoons, but they don't match up to my current weapons.

Are you sure throwing damage is bugged? =/ I don't think so, but it might be true.

I remember picking up some amazing magic winged harpoon from act 5 nm and they worked out better than most uniques, and thats just magic harpoons, The rare ones make me moist they are sooo godly.

Yes unfortunately the dmg calculations for Throw is indeed way off. If you use Fort, the numbers are even more skewed. The actual dmg is about 1/3 of display your particular case, 4k is about what you are actually doing..which is nothing to laugh at by any means.

I am not sure what the formula is for throw dmg calculations, but I am hoping someone here does and is willing to pass on the info.

If you can get your hands on a pair of lacerators( eth would be juicy great!), you will find the amp dmg will greatly help your cause. Have fun with it!

Thanks Goats, and I have one eth lacerator :p. I found the min damage to be verrrry low, about 1.3k, while max damage is 9k.
