MLD Frenzy Barb

So basically, i was considering making a MLD frenzy barb because i recently found an eth 225%ed dimensional blade, as well as an eth ginthers rift, and was wondering if it would be either viable, and if i would have enough people to duel, considering i would be at level 54, the base requirement for PB's. (I would be upping both eth swords) i was thinking with the speed of phase blades, (as well as being able to shael or xx/ias jewel them) combined with the potential damage from frenzy and the magic damage on ginthers, this could make for a good dueler. I need opinions on this though, since i haven't made a MLD in a while. my gear would probably look somethign like this.
Weapons: Both Eth PB's
Helm: Arreats w/ ed/xx jewel
Ammy: Still undecided, perhaps Cats Eye or a good rare/craft? Open to suggestions
Armor: i Have an eth bugged prudence Scarab husk, a low roll and its still over 2K defense, as well as the all res, and FHR.
Boots/Belt/Gloves: IK
Rings: Also undecided, possible some good rares i have lying around. Perhap Rfrosts.
Rings/Ammy: Another possibility is to use the angelic set for the massive AR bonus.

Any opinions on the validity of my build in general, including skill placement/items, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

You'll have to increase your requirement to 61.

I have an Upped Ginther's, remember that an Excep --> Elite upping has a +7 Level Requirement.


In my opinion, you'll be much stronger with a pair of Oath Small Crescents (lvl 49). I also believe that the current European standard as I'm told is that MLD is capped at 49 to prevent the use of Oaths, so you'll have to settle for rares :D

Hope that helps.

Is your eth dimensional blade gold or yellow?
If not, you can't up it. :(

two handed dueling is auto loss at low-mid levels as there's an abundance of chargers.

oath is 49 so i doubt that's where it's capped. unless you mean capped at 48...

MLD isn't capped at 48 in EuSCL. Almost 100% of the dedicated MLD barbs you see use eth Oaths. I myself use it, and no one complained about it yet :azn:

Re: MLD Frenzy Barb

Thanks for the replies guys, think i'll try to get some eth oath's, Small Crescent is best wep? And does everything else in my build check out? I'm not quite sure where i'd put skills, but i'm assuming the rest of my gear is good?

I would use Highland blades for the longer range. Using arreats, Ik gloves and belt, reaching the str req should be easy enough. In fact after I could equip the Ik set I didn't need anymore str for the rest of my equipment :azn:

i again strongly suggest going shield/weapon, forgoing frenzy entirely.
So true, why are you even attempting a pvp frenzier?
I may have over looked it in my earlier post, thinking MLD might give you a chance, but in reality, you are going to get totally ownd trying to PK with it, especially against other very specific pvp builds, but at a medium level.

Sum up: Drop the whole idea b4 you get raped

Re: MLD Frenzy Barb

Okay then, what build would you guys suggest with shield/wep? And what shield would i use.

Re: MLD Frenzy Barb

ww/conc is a great build. shield is most likely a sanctuary hyperion. the bonus about planning for shield use is that you can always go two handed if you dont need the shield. you cant say that for two handed builds.

Yea, i just looked and came to the sanctuary hypeion conclusion right before checking this thread hehe :afro:

Any idea on skill distribution?

Re: MLD Frenzy Barb

Okay, so i got all my items, rolled a 320% eth oath SC, and 54 res 170%def (12% superior) sanctuary hyperion, and my eth bugged prudence dusk shroud, (another low roll, 146%ed and 27 res, will probably re-roll).
Problem is, i don't know what my skills should be like, haven't made a barb in 3 years so this is gonna be a bit of a re-learning thing. Anyone got any ideas for the WW/conc build with said gear?

Re: MLD Frenzy Barb

Is Gerke's an option? Probbably a noob question. I see that sanctuary has alot of nice stuff going, but I've allways liked Gerke's for some reason (it's green! and can be made 1 socketed).

Gerke's (heavy):
79% block.
221-268 def.
+20-30 res all.
15 rep life.
11-16 pdr.
14-18 mdr.

Socketed with a shael it will hit 5 frame block as sanctuary.

Hyperion sanctuary (medium):
69% block.
286-388 def.
+250 def vs. missile.
+20% fhr.
+20% faster block.
+20 dex.
+50-70 res all.
7 mdr.

Re: MLD Frenzy Barb

lol...

You should stop this build b4 u get to far. Honestly. I can think of like 10 million builds that could beat a pvp frenzy one on one. Plus,u cant use an enigma, so good luck trying to catch casters.

Re: MLD Frenzy Barb

Skillwise I would do:

20 bo
1 bc
1 nat res
1 iron skin
1 stamina
1 speed
1 ww
20 mastery

Mastery gives 5% ed and 8 ar each lvl, wereas ww gives 8% ed and 5 ar each lvl. However mastery gives nice critical strike why I think maxing mastery would be better overall. Another nice thing is that you keep your ww's mana cost somewhat low compared to maxing ww. With bc, arreats, 3-piece ik set your ww is at +6% ed for the cost of 28 mana.

Someone correct me if maxing mastery over ww is a bad option.

I think you will have about 6-8 skill points left? Either put them into concentrate or ww. I would save theese skill points for a while. Go duel and see if you ww all the time (in that case I would dump the remainding skill points into ww) or if you use concentrate alot (in that case I would dumb the remainding skill points into concentrate).

If it's for pure melee vs. melee shout might be an option for the remainding skill points?

Wait for a second opinion before you might mess up this barb.
