    Need help increasing damage

    Okay so, I've jsut made a WW baba, like level 77, and for some reason I only hit 1.7k-6k with my mainhand, which people say is low, here is my build

    Stats (base):
    Str - 200
    Dex - enough for gear, 69
    Vit - Rest

    Skills -
    Max BO
    Max WW
    Max axe mastery
    Rest in shout

    Enigma AP
    eth BoTD BA (medium)
    Beast BA (Medium)
    Gore Riders
    IK Belt (need to change)
    IK Gloves (Need to change)
    10/10 BabaT

    Just wondering why I don't hit as hard as most say baba do, people talk about Babas hitting 10k+ I don't seem to be scratching that :(

    Forty might give you 1.5k max, provided you havee medium roll on ebotd ba.
    Are you using might merc? It's possible to give him pride as well (another 1.5k max on ebotd ba from concentration), but looks like an overkill imo.

    Here is why your not "hitting harder":

    1) Get rid of ebotdz and use Griefz with Beastz
    =Best possible PvP combo. botd has terrible damage rolls.

    2) Pump your Attack Rating. You most likely do not have good AR charms or Angelics. Given that WW hits approximately 6 times every second, you could be missing the mark due to substandard AR. Sometimes what appears as 1 big hit can actually be 2 hits at once. If you miss alot, this would make it look like your not hitting harder.

    3) Level up. Your lvl is quite low from a PvP perspective. There are bonuses like Open Wounds, which you don't get full benefit of until you hit LvL 90+. Also, same reasoning in #2 for leveling.

    As a PvM Barb, there is nothing really wrong with your damage. As a matter of fact, it isn't low at all based on what you use. If I look at your Barb as a PvP player, then you have to consider that the only thing you can do is fill up on max damage charms and improve your weapons. Given that, you still aren't going to hit 10k ww. (unless your adding the damage of both weapons)

    10k+ 1 handed damage numbers are usually overstated, and are typically hit with Berzerk using the items that you have. The addition of fort + Auras + max damage charms will change that, but that's not realistic unless you are in a PvM situation. (however you should save up max/ar/life charms)
