    Best weapon for a berserker pvp is hands down the berserker axe ( even the name is appropriate eh) it has the best 1 handed damage to speed ratio of all 1 handed weapons has quite low reqs and range 3. Max block is a must as is 50% physical damage reduction. U will need at least 10 fpa swing which with berserker axes requires 75% ias. Next breakpoint is at 125% ias some feel its necessary while others get away with 10 fpa.I feel 9 fpa is needed sometimes as it can lock slower blocking classes such as a necro in place while u deliver the killing blow. With that in mind lets consider some equipment options:
    Keep in mind defense is of minor importance to a berserker as your defense is reduced to 0 while swinging.
    Weapon: BotD zerker axe or ethereal zod death cleaver (Botd has 20 more ias while death cleaver (only if close to perfect) edges out the botd in damage somewhat).
    Helm: Arreats face (good allrounder), demonhorn's edge (gives 10% ias +1 more to warcries masteries and combat skills but lacks fhr, stat bonus and resists u decide which is better).Crown of ages is also possible with some ias/dmg jewels to help u reach breakpoints, has fhr,+skill,+resist and pdr (often is moot since u can reach max pdr with a stormshield+belt slot).
    Armor: enigma breast/light plate (remember defense is irrelevant so go with the lightest armor possible to help u save those str stats).Jewelers light plate of the whale,titan or balance(24 fhr) filled with ias/ed jewels- useful to reach breakpoints, gives u insane damage but loses out on the faster run, +skills and stat bonus (u decide). Also depends if where u duel teleport is allowed- then enigma gives u huge advantage compared to jewelers armor.
    Shield- stormshield hands down. Socket it with ias/ed or other jewel/gem depending on resist/speed breakpoint needs.
    Other equipment can be changed depending on who you duel but i generally use highlords wrath (20% ias and deadly strike- yum!) verdungo's belt,2xraven frost, 20 ias+resist+stat gloves (rare), goreriders.
    For charms i generally use fine gc of vita/sustenance/balance. Since zerk has such a huge bonus to damage and AR- 1 10 max dmg charm gives u huge increases in damage.
