    Is Battle Cry Viable?

    I was looking at the skill Battle Cry (The one with -TD and -Dmg) and I thought, hey, Vs melee, this could be a really useful skill. Tele in, Cry, whirl. With my +skills, this skill gave -82% target defense!! Thats not such a bad drop when you're not on the receiving end!! What does everyone think??

    Well,the thing is the -% dmg & defense on battle cry works on the enhanced dmg%.So lets say you curse a pala with 800% enhanced dmg from skill,battlecry will reduce his enhanced dmg to 718%,he'll still hurt almost just as bad.Same with defense.

    Oh ok... That sucks then. thought i was on to something!! Perhaps a point in the stun cry to ensure i get a hit in vs other barbs for instance.... i'll have to test it on open before i commit on the realms

    The only use for it in pvp is on a warcry barb vs melee, because you will already have it maxed for the warcry synergy and have a ton of +skills items to boost it. Otherwise it's not worth the skill point investment IMO.

    If you want to stun your opponent, put some points into Leap (BvC build).
