I can't find any builds... where did they all go?

I searched the whole forum first by entering key words, then searching page by page!

What happen to the sticky threads which had the builds and pointers in how to make a barb?? Can someone please post me a link! I want to find a strategy for my barb which has full ik set. His lvl 20 at the moment and not very strong cause he has hardly any skill points used and 0 stats points.

Can someone pls help me.... i will greatly appreciate it! Any links will be helpful. Thankyou

The forum ate them. Look in the Strategy Compendium, although many of the guides are for 1.09, theres some 1.10 ones up you might find useful.

i did but there is only a concentrate barb in 1.10 forum and some barbs suited for 1.09! I prefer to have a build for 1.10 and it's uses becuase something has changed and i don't want to build a barb that has some weaknesses!

Come on Hal, surely you got that Concentrate build in a notepad somewheres, that you can just copy/paste it...plz! ..pretty plz!.

Really...? What about whirlwind barb and is concetrate barb suited for ik gear?

Ok i took a good look at it and ur rigth it is quite nice... but some questions i am using ik maul and it says i should keep dex base so do u use the dex from his points and put it in strength instead so i can use maul? Also i am not as rich to afford a doom eth pole arm for my merc ... is might merc still the best way to go?

well, I've never played a 2hander concentrate barb..and from my experience, I think a shield is a must..but I dont want to be one of those who is like, "use a shield, you'll suck without it, na na, na na nana", you may work fine with it, but with IK set up, a zerker build would rock, as well as a WW i'm guessing.
But the max block thing, with a shield is awesome.:)

but back to the merc question, yes a might merc works good with any decent to high damage weapon, and also witha concentrate barb. I used a hone sudan for a loong time, and inserted 2 amn's and a ith? I think, the one that lower targets def...its cheap, easy and fairly effective. Otherwise, I find lots of rares with pretty good high damage, and some with cool stats.

Cyber:

Yeah, it's over in the compendium now, though I suppose I'll take the forum wipe as a sign and post an updated version of the guide on the forum in the next few days and try to get Zo to sticky it. No pvp update yet, just altered to make the guide a bit clearer, and provide multiple options to people who want to try different things.

I've been meaning to post it for awhile now, just been busy with some C# scripting I've been doing for a PR UO server and life in general. I'll give it the look over to make sure it's clean and toss it up for yall later.

Nice is he effective in the depths of hell and does he die often?? Also killing Act bosses does he take a while or does he beat them to a bloody pulp and still have time for a snack after?

Got an act2 [hell] def merc, all itens i´ve told, some brain and strat then ya should be fine. WW for Crowd Control and Zerk for Unics. There´ll be only one way to make ya die: Iron Maiden Aura. On an 8 players game [hell] against baal minion, perhaps ya suffer a little bit.
Cya.

Well...

My Conc Barb solo's hell with absolutely no difficulty. He is lvl ** and currently all I do is Baal runs for leveling. Nothing can touch him it seems.

I am the meatsheild for 8 player Baal runs too with him. I was curious and asked the rest of the party to step back and let me do the killing. My life orb never dropped below 9/10ths full. Lister was gravy.

So, this is one powerful build. I highly recommend it. Hal's guide nails it 100%.

Some question for ya Shed:

1) describe your stat points distribution
2) how much dmg per hit, and how life leech is working in your building, perhaps tha point should be your high defense from shout+conc+merc...
3) itens? if ik set, already socketed ani of the 5 free sockets?
4) are ya using WW for back-up/crowd control?

Sure bro- and here are the answers:

1) Stats

Str: Just as much points needed for my Archon (maybe I went 5 over). With equipment I am around 220.

Dex: 200 with items ATM, but will take to 222 for max block using my SS.

Vita: Everything else. I have 100 unused point. Afer dex, I'll dump it all here. I am at 4K life after cries and am currently at 350 vita. With another 100 vita pumped in here and some item tweaking, I should make 5k life easy

Ener: nothing at all. With cried I have 350 mana and that's all I ever need

As far as skills, follow Hal's guide. For one point wonders I choose Leap Attack, Taunt, Howl, Beserk, Iron skin and nat res. At lvl 99 (ha!) this still gives me enough skill to max the last Concentrate synergy- Bash. I can not emphasize enough how this build taught me to use more "finesse" based skills for a barb. Sure, I can probably power through anything, but it is fun to go straight to the boss and clear the way with howl, or lure a monster into my merc's reach with taunt.

2) Damage at this point, after my Merc and cries is about 7500 at 10 FPS. Once I get Steelrends this will increase and even more so as my merc and I level- probably to arounf 8 or 9k.

Lifeleech=44%. It works well, just remeber LL is a different animal now.
Def is arounf 23K with Conc

3) Items:
Arreats with 39/15
CoH Archon
BotD CB
Stormsheild with 40/14 max (I hear these don't work for some reason?)
Verdungo'
Drac's Grasp (to be replaced with Steelrends)
Goreriders
Highlord's Wrath
Ravenfrost
Crafted ring

I do admit I have very good stuff (ima horse trader and MF addict) but you can accompish a lot with much less.

4) No- I don't use WW at all. If I need crowd control, I use taunt or howl.

Here you go.

That's a copy of it I posted on my own space, so I can update/correct it whenever I feel like it. Saves the board some room as well.
