    yes.

    I've been looking to build myself a two-handed frenzy botd beserker axe barb for quite awhile, but I haven't been able to find a guide for a frenzy barb yet and my ideas for the build usually involve too many skill points (it takes me a long time to get to lvl 90)

    but anyways, If you could work out how to build an effective frenzy barb, you could give yourself 2 botd baalrog blades or azurewraths or whatever and kick a ton of arse, I think.

    lol. I think.

    2 azurewraths would be real nice and combine Chains of honor, laying of hands, and seraph's hymn, your going to roll over demons and undead monsters :).

    2x non-eth (lol)Botd Phase frenzy would be nice.
    If you mean 2 hand weilded like a cb, then the damage from spears (war pike, ghost spear) or polearms (great poleaxe, threshers) is higher.

    Edit: Technically they can be eth if you upgrade from an eth dimensional or crystal sword :scratch:

    Phase's can't be eth. And yes if you mean 2 hand, then I would use polearms.

    I believe phases can be eth if you uprade them from an ethereal crystal or dimensional, but then that only applies to uniques/rares.

    I'm confused as to the original poster's question...are we talking using two swords, or one sword with two hands? I figured he mean the later, myself, in which case a conc or whirl barb would work well.

    go with your own build, thats what i always do. i design builds based on me getting to lvl ** (it seems to be a fairly easy level to get to) but if you include all skill quests at lvl ** you actually have 101 skill points - i considered this all when i build my most recent ww / conc IK barb.

    in answer to the original point, if you are looking for a 2 handed barb then go for eth botd poleaxe, ghost spear, whatever but if you specifically want 2 swords then try a duel fury balrog blade frenzy barb (or any duel weapon, botd cb, botd zerk etc etc.)

    good luck with building him

    there's a lot of different opinions but i say an ECBBoQ would work well if u went 2 handed because your build could still utilize a sheild (if a zon or barb wanted to duel).

    yeah.. thats my take on it. Sure polearms or spears do more dmg but if u only wanna max one mastery, i'd go with that (or obviously eth botd cb). Im not actually sure which is more expensive..

    I mean a single two hand sword. I kow there are weapons that do more damage . I just like playing around with the idea.

    well then i think cloud has it right. Get yourself an eth botd colossus blade and start kicking ***. I think it'd be insanely hard to find a cruel baalrog blade of quickness (of appropriate damage) on the ladder... assuming that's what a CBBoQ is...
