    Hey all, my buddy and I killed norm Baal last night, he is a fire druid and I am a frenzy barb. We have started NM and beat Andariel. I am wondering where I should farm for a bit to get some upgrades? Primarily lacking in the weapon department. I had a Malice take me to 40 but it's not cutting it anymore. Should I keep farming Baal in norm for a bit? Just run Andy in NM? Or try to just keep pushing forward and hope something drops?

    My gear as follows:

    Helm: Bitter Crest Horned Helm
    - Defense: 45
    - 30 AR
    - 2+ Spear Mastery
    - 47% Enhanced Defense
    - 5 Mana
    - 10% chance to cast lvl 3 nova
    - 3 light radius
    - Repairs 1 durability every 3 seconds

    Amy: Civerbs
    - Replenish life 4
    - 40% Mana regen

    Chest: Light Plate Smoke
    - Defense: 159

    Belt: Snakecold
    Boots: Vidalas
    Gloves: Dread Fist Chain Gloves
    - 10 ias
    - 3 mana stolen
    - 20 def based on char level
    - 6 poison resist

    Ring: Bone Hold
    - 32 ar
    - lr 13
    - half freeze duration
    - 1 dr
    - 15 % mf

    Ring: Stone Gyre
    - 27 ar
    - 6 ll
    - 27 mana
    - dr 2
    - 1mpk

    Weapon: Fine Cleaver of Maiming
    - Damage: 12-45
    - 27 ed
    - 4 md
    - 40 ar

    Weapon: Wraith Star Flail
    - Damage: 1 -35
    - 20 ed
    - 10 md
    - 90 ar
    - 79 dtu
    - 36 ar au

    Most of my gear is teens and under. As you can tell my weapons probably do not cut it for NM.

    Regards.

    Most of your items are underwhelming for your level. You can definitely try roaming around in Nightmare for a bit, but I think running Act V over and over until you get better gear would be the best option. I don't think you could take on Andariel with what you currently have, but I haven't played a barbarian in a long time.

    I suggest you keep going forward until you reach Nightmare Mephisto, he is a much better target for farming items.

    In the meantime you can hire a Act 2 NW merc to help you out a bit in combat.

    Hi guys, thanks for the advice. I am level 65 now. I am wondering about switching to WW. Basically I need to consider weapons with IAS if I go 1h or 2h? I am thinking of crafting two Oaths.
