    Much help with war pike berserk barb

    OK I have an idea for my next barb, hes going to use a botd war pike and just do insane damage with max berserk and its synergies. Now spending the points seems easy to me but I really don't know what gear would be best.

    I want to reach a decent attack speed with the pike, and I want to do good damage. Obviously defense on my gear won't matter at all. Heres some questions I have.

    I know ias only affects ww speed if it is in the weapon, but is this true for berserk attack speed as well?

    If it does affect berserk attack speed, how much ias should I get to hit a decent attack speed fps? Should I wear armor socketed with 40/15s instead of CoH or Enigma? Should I wear 20% ias gloves, or a helm socketed with 40/15s?

    I don't trust my own calculations since I am an idiot, please tell me what you think optimal gear for good damage and good attack speed.

    I cant tell you how much IAS you'll need, but I can verify that Outside IAS does work with 'zerk.

    60 Ias on BOTD gives you 15 frame Beserk. 78=14 105=13

    So does that mean that if I get another 55 % ias I will reach 13 frames with a botd warpike?

    How much is needed for 12 frames?

    Does deadly strike/crushing blow/open wounds work with berserk?

    Will iron maiden hurt me if I am using berserk?
