    Ik Set Pimped out...Best build???

    Ok so i had an ik barb, concentration main skill, with whirlwind to help get around/speed things up. This was my first character at the beginning of this season. So hes ben sittin naked for about a year, acting as a mule. Just the other day i traded really cheap for this pimped out ik set, and was wondering whats the best build these days for the ik set. Gonna make a new barb surrounding this set as i have it with maybe changing the rune in the armor.

    Helm: 2 x 40ed/15ias jewels (40mf)
    Maul: 2 x Ber (80%cb)
    Armor: Cham (Cannot be frozen)
    Boots n Belt

    Suggestion? Wealth is not an issue, just curious, if this is now just nice to have, add it to the collection. or is there another approach to the set i could take, now that i could compliment it nicely.

    that wuld b very nice but i wuld rather have another 40-15 in armour sted of cham cos you can always use rfrosts which u will use otherwise ur a silly little bugger lol n i wuld also replace the maul with another 2 40-15's in it sted of the bers n put the bers in helm 4 16% DR

    If you are WW, make sure you put 2x shaels or 2x40/15.

    THis is to hit the last WW Bp.

    You wont be able to WW with that socket setup. It will be too slow. 40/15's in the Helm don't affect WW speed. Might I suggest:

    2x 40/15 Jewels in Maul
    2x Ber in Helm
    Ber in Armour

    Stash:
    2x Ort Helm
    2x Thul Helm
    2x Tal Helm
    2x Ral Helm
    2x Ravenfrosts, Highlords Amulet
    Angelic Amulet+Rings in stash
    Dwarfs, Wisps in stash.

    Typical WW barb skill setup, with decent Leap investment.

    That would net you the fastest WW speed, more damage on the weapon, 44% DR with the main setup, as well as the usual gear switch options when needed.

    20 base speed maul - 40 ias = -20
    2 x shael hits the last ww breakpoint of 4 fpa per ww check
    40/15, yes, use them, but make sure they're 15 max dmg instead
    2 40/15 ias will just leave you 10 ias short

    I think you guys are missing the point, he is looking for a build that will let him use the set as it is.

    This is incorrect. Ogre Mauls are base 10, so two 15% ias jewels will take you to -60, reaching the last breakpoint.

    My experience with IK set is that it is better to just add it to your museum collection. (since you say wealth is no issue, i think IK set is a pretty reasonable poor mans outfit)
    That is, i used it as a poor mans outfit. With no ber runes. With ber runes in the helmet and armor, it might indeed be a lot more usefull. But that is not the case here...

    Well lots to think about, and yeah i wish it was a little different, Dunno why the guy would ever wast a cham in the armor when you coul use ravenfrost. One interesting thing came up. the two 40/15ias jewels in the helm wont affect the whirlwind speed, didn't know that!.
    So just to try somethin different and to keep the high cb in the maul, what would anyone think of an act1 merc with faith, to help reach the last beakpoint?

    That wouldn't work either. The only thing that effects the WW speed is on the weapon itself. Anything outside of that is neglected.

    yeah its not that ik set is bad because it isn't to bad.

    the only complaint i here from it is damage and weapon.

    everything thing else is ok.

    I did a few tests, and the faith on the act1 merc, sure sped up the concentrate speed, other than that, she just kept dying over and over, not really worth anything at all.
    Bottom line i am not going to resocket the maul with 2 x 4015ias, jewels. Thats just a waste of resources. And as i put in my first post, the only change i'll do is resocket the armor. (who wastes a cham in armor, i mean come on).
    So thanks for all the input, The set stays on the conc barb, coming out from time to time, to get the dust blown off, and maybe just maybe he wont be totally forgotten about.
