    It depends on what kind of barb you are. If you use WW, go for IAS (shael runes), then damage, but use 40% jewels if possible.

    Eth runes are ok. If you have nothing better to socket it with then go for it! :thumbsup:

    Your best bet is to go with 2x shael runes. You need +30 ias on weapon to hit another ww breakpoint and personally, I would rather swing faster for concentrate than do a little more damage. You could also do 2x ed/ias jewels but that would be rather expensive.

    IAS = Increased Attack Speed

    For Barb WW, the number of hits you get it dependent on only the weapon IAS. I don't know what the specific breakpoints are for 2 handed WW, but in general, the faster your weapon is, the more hits you will make each WW.

    Hence the 2 x shael rune idea.

    My IK barb helps out with ubers sometimes, so I socket in a mal rune and a shael (IAS and prevent monster heal).

    Yes, I agree 2 shaels, but 2 40/15 jewels would be a wast. That is if you can afford 2 40/15 jewels you can also buy a grief+beast, which is much better
