    IMO, no ; they have short range and not too good dmg.

    Try an IK setup ; I've heard they're good in PvM. There are some posts about.

    I use an eth BOTD tmaul, good dmg and fun, but hard to get...

    well, I'm already using that kinda setup with one of my barbs, and the main reason I wanted this kind of barb would be for very close combat...
    I was just wondering what the best one handed mace would be and if frenzy would be a good main attack skill... I realize ww isn't gonna work cause of the small range, but that's what I needed feedback on... I wanted info about one build and you guys told about all other stuff... sry if I wasn't clear bout that

    I have a lvl 87 frenzy mace barb and he kicks ***. I have been focusing all my resources on him for 3 months to get uber gear and it is worth it. Main weapons are eth zodded bstar and eth zodded nords. Two warcry weaps on switch for boost to BO.
    I think that the eth nords (near perf %ED) is the best one hand mace but a tad slow for primary frenzy weapon, so I have the eth bstar for more speed. The last thing I need for this build is to replace the bstar with an eth stormlash which will be the same speed and have more damage, and the chance to cast static will be nice.
    Nords has nice added cold damage, stormlash has nice added lightning dmg, and I also use a demon limb just to cast enchant for extra fire dmg. This helps a little with PI's but I use the unique ammy with chance to cast amp dmg (can't remember name right now) and they go down easy.
    As far as skills go, max frenzy and double swing for synergy dmg as a starting point and the rest is up to you. I have about 10 in warcry to stun big packs while I whack away.
