    Leap Attack? Viable in PvP?

    Eh, Hi everyone i'm new to the forums just signed up actually. Im getting really bored of d2, pvm blows, every PvP char I make seems to blow, maybe its because of my middle class status, and I hate Cookie-cutter builds. I was thinking and I figured maybe a leap attack barb would be good, my ideas were this
    max weapon master
    max leap attack
    max shout
    max bo
    1 into battle command
    1 into iron skin
    1 into natural resistance
    1 into each prequist
    rest in iron skin?

    my gear would have been
    Arreats socketed with a 40ed jewel
    Eth Zod'd Glad Bane
    Angelic combo
    A 2 handed Thundermaul, or some other Botd
    Gores
    Verdungo
    any type of gloves dont matter
    Switch: 2 echo axes

    Charms: assortment of Ar, and life charms, some with Fhr mods the rest mainly have ar-life.

    Suggestions would be nice, and quick Please, thanks for all the help in advance

    Hi and welcome to forum.

    I'll go straight to the point.
    Leap Attack isn't viable at all. Noone is stupid enough to get hit by it and it's not that powerful to be worth trying.

    For pvp it is VERY hard to land a hit. If you can do it well however, you can kill quite a few builds.

    leap is better, it got stun radius.

    Go tell the lvl 25 hc leapers that LA is unviable rofl. Its actually a build that requires skill, u dont leap all across the screen but do short shift+leaps about 1 cm long. Properly skilled leaper + eth honor lance or insight rune staff = 1 hit ko on most low-mid lvl builds.

    Thanks for the laughs of the day.
    Would you mind telling why it isn't viable? "Noone is stupid enough to get hit by it" Right. Blizzard isn't viable, it can be dodged too!

    Have you actually dueled at all? Or tried leap attack?

    Leap Attack's damage is usually delivered 3-5 seconds after it is cast, assuming it connects. Blizzard starts damaging you from the shards almost as soon as it is cast over someone's head. It is far easier to hit with blizzard in pvp. It is also an AoE spell. Leap attack IS a good build for LOW (under 30) dueling where people aren't running around with 29387178% run/walk and enigma.

    It's decent for 30 and below. hld= leap barbs are big pinatas.

    EDIT: I swear I posted before Omikron :p
