My Take on Frenzy Barb My first build... Just a general opinion. Stats- Strength- Plenty, affects damage and allows use of eqpt. Dexterity- Less than strength, Mostly eqpt, but also AR Vitality - Rest here Energy - NONE, get a mana drain item. SKill Breakdown: 1xBash, Double Throw, Shout (Prereqs for frenzy and syn.) 20x Mastery of your choice, must be either Axe Sword or Mace mastery. I'd go with Axes or Swords. 20x Iron Skin, helps your defence 20x Double Swing (early skill, prerq. for Frenzy, Synergy for Frenzy 20x Taunt, useful on bosses (minions) and ranged attackers, Synergy for Frenzy 1-10+ Natural Resistance, helps push over hell resistance Dont flame me yet. Somebody's gonna say "Why not put points in Berserk?" because, most monsters later on are magic immune or resistant, and as difficulty goes up, monsters get more resists and immunes. Better to resist their attacks better. With this build I reccomend: ...:::Rich People:::... 2x Eth BoTD Zerkers -or- 2x Crescant Moon Zerkers (Axe) 2x Kingslayer Cryptic Swords -or- 2x Rare Phase Blades (w/ lots of ED/IAS) Stone (Shael Um Pul Lum) Boneweave (BoTD helps here) -or- IK's Arreat's Face (+30 res, +2 barb lvls, +2 Comb lvls) Verdungo's Gore Riders (CB and Open Wounds are good,upped later) Lava Gouts (IAS, Fire Resist, Enchant on Striking, upped later) 2x Katho's -or 1x Katho's 1x RF 1x Mara's (+25 or better), or Good rare amulet 3x Bcomb Lifers (you get 20 life for every 5 vita) 7x Bcomb FHR (u need it, trust me) 9x 5/5 (+5 res all/5% FR/W) 1x Anni ..:oor People::.. 2x 6o Zerkers w/ 6x (12x total) 30/15's (Jewel, 30% ED, 15% IAS) 2x 4o Cryptic LS w/ 4x (8x total) 30/15's ( /\ ) Silks of the Victor (upped) w/ 1x 30/15 Rare Barbarian Helmet with VERY good res/skills Verdungo's -or- IK belt Gore Riders (upped later) Lava Gouts (upped later) 2x Rare rings w/ CBF/Skills/Life 1x Mara's (20+) -or- good rare amulet 5x Bcomb lifers (you'll need more strength) 3x Bcomb FHR 2x Bcomb Mana Steal 9x 5/5 (see /\ "Rich people") 1x Anni -or- 5/5 well, there ya go.
