Last Barbarian Questions.

I am a two weaponed WW Barbarian and I just wanna know a few things.

1. Should I use Stormshield against all melee characters.
2. What should I socket into the Stormshield.
3. How many SOJs is a +5 Guided Arrow Widowmaker on NL.

It will help immensely if you do. I'm not sure about how it stands up against smiters, though.

If you need help getting max block I would suggest Eld or Shael runes. Other good choices might be be Ber, Cham, Um, depending on what you need. Good old 40/15's are nice too. If you want to be stupid go with Zod.

Try the trade values forum. I've seen people asking for all different types of things, it all depends on who you're trading with and if you have something he wants.

It depends quite a lot. I would say that Stormshield is only useful vs. Barbarians and bowazons in TvT, but that's just the way I am.

2. What should I socket into the Stormshield.
I personally would go for Eld as it saves the most life.

Personally I think chance to block is more effective than block rate, since your blocking breakpoints aren't that slow to begin with, and a higher chance to block overall will help you stay alive longer.

Keep ber in mind also, as you can never have too much damage reduction (unless you're already maxed out).

Remember that Stormshield has a very high 35% Damage Reduction, added to a perfect Verdungos that I will be getting, that's the topped 50%.

2 weapons + ww is great fun but a SS is nice to have when you want the - dmg, block or other mods.

i put a -req/ed jewels in one of the SS i use on a barb. he also happends to be the only barb of 30 or so barbs that i also have max block on. he is an old 1.10 barb that i still use to run D keys in full games while still using all his old items.

the good thing about LOD is you can always take something out of the SS later if you find something better to add to it. start off with a p diamond or a +ed jewel and then go from there.
