    Mf gear and attack rating probblem

    Hi all
    I have an Barb for mf, this is hes gear:

    Harlequin
    Tomb Reaver 3 slot 1 has an Shae already
    upgreaded Chance Guard
    upgraded Shaftstop - this is for fast runs
    String of Ears - this is for fast runs
    Nagel ring
    Raven Frost
    mf magi boots "yeah havent found War travs yet" :(
    unique charm of mf "forgot the name right now"
    and 2 charms of mf
    this sums like 310 mf total. I can increase the mf changing armor an belt for Tal armor and Goldrap and i avoid death better , Oh and this is a WW barb

    OK the situation is that i miss alot, so i want somthing that will give me a better chance at hitting stuff, im practicaly always on 50% to 60%+ on average hit. I was thinking getting an Ignor targe diffence on the Tomb reaver , but at the same time i wanted to put to ohm to it for more dmg.
    Any sugestion in this matter will be apreciated. thanks

    You really should use that cry, especially againts bosses ^_^

    Demon Limb on switch, you'll have plenty of gold for the charges. and some +AR GC, that helps a lot too.

    i think you need more resists. that is usually what causes deaths in hell.

    mf barbs aren't really effective, because as you've already found out, you need to use a lot of eq slots just to survive. i didn't even make one in .10, as without enigma, he couldn't get over 100% mf with good eq (i use guillames and gore riders on all my barbs except ik.)

    some quick fixes:
    laying of hands if you have it, or crafted blood gloves with as much leech as you can get, maybe 10% crushing blow if possible.

    rare ammy/rings with resists.

    i found my barbs to survive much better with smoke armor than shaft.

    1-5 nat resist.

    try 2 eths in the last two slots on the tomb reaver. cheap, and if it doesn't work, unsocket.

    pss. just to double check, mastery on polearms right? because i get 70% min on all my barbs in hell with just mastery, even with base dex, no angelic stuff.

    Well, my mf polebarb doesn't have any problems in hell... I hit regularly, have maxed res, and over 600%mf on weapon switched merc kills.


    Have I flogged my barb enough yet?:lol:

    OK resist is not the prob here, i have nat resit in 10 +skills items.
    and i think i have disided, im going for the Jah rune for ignor target deff and a Ohm for the tomb reaver.
    and for the amu and ring setup, that will make me have less mf cuz i have then to take manal or nagelring and and the mf amu that i have.
    I have some Laying of hands gloves so im gona try that before i socked the jah and ohm.

    Thanks alot for the advice all

    Nota that im not saying that my barb sucks, is that i wanted to improve hit hitting rate,.. to make him better :)

    What`s ya barb lvl? - this is very important for ya hit rate.
    Jah will help on anything except any kind of bosses so useless imo for a barb as there are way better ways to make him hit more (see above).
    Ohm cold do, Lo may do better, some 2x/3x ed jewels could do till u decide what`s best. Hmm...or Eth runes^^.

    Sorry... I forgot that is wasn't this thread I'd mentioned my barb in... but I'm sure mepersoner and Hal have probably seen that thread, too, and all the others I've mentioned him in.... :howdy:

    Lvl 87 Polebarb
    Fruit_Stick
    USW Ladder

    Str 236
    Dex 106
    Vit 253
    Energy 10

    Life 2.3k
    Mana 242
    All res 75

    77% mf 2 socket T.Reaver - Rare Jewel (28%ed, +28 def, something else), +9% mf jewel (I was being cheap until I get an Ist and a really good Rare ed jewel)
    Dual Babas on switch
    IK Armour, w/ ptopaz
    IK Helm, 2 ptopaz, 82%mf total
    IK gloves, belt, boots (25%mf on boots from set)
    35% mf ammy
    2x 26% nagelrings
    25% Gheeds
    +1 masteries GC, +1 warcries GC
    2x 6%mfsc, 2x 5% mfsc, 20life sc, 19 life sc

    Merc
    Socketed eth Tarnhelm, ptopaz, 52%mf
    1 socket T.Reaver, Amn'd, 78%mf
    Shaftstop

    342 mf on primary setup, 439 on weapon switch, 569mf on weapon switch + merc kill.

    Mind you, I had only jokingly started this char as an mf barb, figuring I'd finally bow to the pressure to make a cookie-cutter sorc, but, as it's turned out, I own pindle and eldritch. And the major reason for the IK set is largely to handle the T.Reaver (+20 dex off gloves), the 2 sockets on the helm, and +skills from set bonuses. I'm considering testing out Skullders if I can get it upgraded, but I can't find a lem to save my life, and I hate trading.
