    Mid lvl pvp barb help plz

    sup guys. Just need a little help with my lvl 42 barb im planning on making.

    Gear
    ---------
    Helm - Vampgaze (pruby prob)
    Armour - Shaftstop (pruby)
    Weapon - Eth atlantin (around 250 1hand max)
    Sheild - Whistans ( ed jewel )
    rings/ammy - ravenfrost + angelic ring/ammy
    boots - Ik maybe? not sure about this
    belt - Ik again? i dont think soe is worth it here since my dr will be
    around 45 or so.
    Gloves - rare 20 ias 5 dex and resists ?

    I have never made a mid lvl barb so what do u guys think of this setup?
    Also if anyof u have made a pvp barb does zerk rule now? or should i go conc or the good old ww. Ill mostly be duling barbs, pallys and druids if that helps any.

    Thx 4 the input guys

    I would reccomend using Rockstopper and string for belt/helm. The other mods on rockstopper are better than the other ones on gaze, it just lacks leech (not to helpful in pvp anymore) and DR (made up w/ string) And you gain a lot of extra mods, then on the string, you will hit 50% Dmg reduction, and get back the LL if you really wanted that :)

    I agree with mali... DS is good :)

    Arent travs level 42 req? I havent used those things in ages... correct me if im wrong, but if those are 42, they are definitly your boots of choice.

    BTW, im making a level 48 assassin soon, we should spar ;)

    The damage on eth Atlantean looks impressive at first glance, but it's rather slow. Coldsteel Eye or Fleshrender might be better alternatives for the speed and DS, you'd probably have to throw together a +max armor though to make up for the dmg loss.

    I am Duelenooga and have been dueling with my 53 for well over two months.
    I'm not gonna tell everyone wut wpn I have (just join a trade channel and ask lol) but I can enlighten you on some other options.

    I use:
    6% arreats 30ed/5 max
    Griz Armor 88ed several other mods (too lazy to get 4 soc/life armor)
    Artisand Tower Shield of Blocking 87ed/min/ele dmg
    Travs
    String
    IK Gaunt
    Angelic Ring/Ammy
    20dex Raven

    10x Sharp Grand Charms preferably with +str or +life
    10x Small vitas 18+ life

    Your looter can grab the ear ^^

    Another thing I failed to notice the first time: Io runes give Barbs more life than PRubies... not that you should be socketing your gear with either one of those, *cough* dmg jewels *cough*.

    my level 58 will be using this

    ethereal highland blade 271 ed 15 ias with 1 jewel in 1 more free slot around 350 1 hand
    arreats with 36 ed 15 max
    130 ed armor with 90 life
    whistand's shield with ed jewel
    wartravlers or gorerider for 15 ds
    ik gloves
    15% soe? tgods for lightning duelers
    2 raven frost
    cat eyes

    all max charms

    for barb pala and druid duels ww is probably better but ww will drain durability really fast

    The Atlantean with a shael will only reach the first bp for ww also

    if you want to use iks use the glove boot and belt to get 2 combat skills

    gaze cannot compare to arreats imo
    30% pdr from shaft is good enough + high life

    Ed/Max is bugged as is ed/min.No longer gives the correct damage and normal ed% jewels end up giving more dmg.
