Loving my Barb! And Ripping up the place Hi Guys, So I'v been working on an IK barb. I was going conc. but then along the way decided to put some into WW as well. So I maxed BO, Shout, put one in all of the pre-req's etc. Along the way, I found a normal, (white) cryptic axe in the pit with my zon. I used the cube recipe and ended up with 5 sockets in it. I had some of the runes needed and traded for the rest. I made a doom cryptic axe, got perfect +370% ED. My plan was to give this weapon to a might merc for my IK barb. So anyway, I hit lvl 67 last night, and I'm not able to equipt the IK armor and maul yet and my merc isen't high enough lvl for the cryptic axe. So I decided to use it myself. I LOVE IT!!! my barb is tearing up the place! with my might merc, I'm doing 7303 max dmg, and I have only one psn charm in my inv. it's a 100pd grand charm. So basically 7203 real dmg. The holy freeze is slowing everything to a crawl. I haven't gone into hell yet, I've been doing baal runs to lvl up. I can rip through the ws keep full of black souls etc. wearing an enigma (cheap one, because someone made it from an embossed plate!) my str is at 299. I'm actually thinking of scrapping the IK set idea and going pole arm barb. he looks killer cool!! with that cryptic axe and I haven't had this much fun playing a barb for a long time. I did a diablo run last night (switching to bezerk because of IM) and only died once because of a stupid mistake, I was IM'd and hit conc instead of zerk, I was dead after one hit! Anyway, just wanted to share my barb joy with everyone! As for the build of the barb I was loosely following Hal's conc guide but adapting it to my taste. The only place I'm really suffering is in the AR department, sometimes I have trouble to hit, but tonight I'll be throwing a demon limb on his weapon switch for the added ar, and maybe I'll go with angelic ammy+ring, not sure yet .. I'll see how it goes.
