    Im not sure im correct but i think its like this:

    4 socks armor with life, socketed with max dmg/ed jewels.
    Arreats with ed/max dmg jewel
    Sanctuarry Dragon shield
    Gores
    Bloodfists
    Thundergods

    Skill wise max ww and mastery ofc. Then 1 in speed and nat res, rest goes to your bo.

    Then fill up with 40 20 life sc's or some cry skillers.

    Swap dragon shield out for Hyperion,
    Swap armor out for a shaftstop, or if not vs physical - eth weave prudence works well.
    Tgods is ok, but only usable as sorb vs light. IK Belt + Boots + gloves is decent combo.
    raven/angelics

    ed/max in armors is bugged iirc, 30/15 ed/ias'd be the way to go.

    i was gonna go eOath small crescent because of the much lower reqs and approximately equal dmg. also, for high def armor, why shouldn't i use ePrudence dusk instead of stone?

    neways, ty for ur suggestions.

    highland for the range, stone because the stats are better, 60 fhr all you need plus the other stats make it a better armour than prudence imo.

    but is 1 more range and a bit more dmg really worth sacrificing roughly 70 pts in vit? though i do like the way swords look more than the way axes look.

    I think ill try both stone and eth prudence, however.

    yes, less life with highland. the gains are when dueling other barbs using highland and dueling smiters. smiters will have the same range as you if you use small crescent and barbs will slightly outrange you. regarding prudence, if you use the socket recipe you will get a nice def armour, my dusk has 2651 def but i normally use duress when dueling other barbs to be honest.
    all the armours mentioned are useful as too are the highland and small crescent. it may depend on which weapon you can get with a good roll %. good luck.

    It's been a while, and I was always a hardcore dueler, but I wouldnt build mine the way anyones listed it above, I've had great success with something closer to the following:

    ED/IAS arreats
    4x ed/ias'd jewelers xxx of the whale
    Eth oath highland
    ed/ias as needed, rest ed/max (I dont believe its bugged in shields?) in an AToD
    Gore riders
    Tele amulet with other mods (ie +skills, stats, life, resistence etc)
    ravenfrost
    dual stat, +life etc etc rare ring
    Tgods

    Now, I dont remember the IAS breakpoints off the top of my head, but if theres any left that you need, which there shouldnt be, get it from the gloves, otherwise I'm an advocate of IK gloves (free 40 stats, cant go wrong there)

    Of course, this is a zerker, not a WWer.

    It works better IMO to go to 53 for the eth oath balrog blade.

    As I said, there are likely differences between the hc/sc ideal build, and I left out a lot of specifics such as charms, switch-gear and all that jazz, but its a very solid HC build, which I'm sure would catch a lot of people off gaurd. Basically your goal is to get a teleporting, 9frame zerk barb with a lotta damage, solid life and max blocking. Oh yeah, if I recall correctly, its 125%IAS you need to hit 9frame zerk with the eth oath BB.

    oath pros:
    -excellent dmg if u get a good roll, and still alright dmg if u get a bad one.
    -adds indestructible mod so can be in an eth wep (lower reqs + more dmg!)
    -as u said, reaches last ww bp
    -low req lvl

    unfortunately, ww doesnt trigger 'chance to cast x on hit/attack' mods.

    cons:
    -wide range of possible %ed (non issue if u by the thing already made)
    -rediculous impossibility of finding/trading eth weps to make one in (same as above)

    you dont really need prudence or stone unless you are in a dr% limited environment (league whatever) just use shaft or ed/str/life armor.

    my base setup is
    arreat
    shaft
    string
    whitstans
    2 raven
    ik gloves
    craft amu
    WTS (gores most likely better but i cba muling them)
    oath highland

    switches with another oath (>1 oath 2handed)
    angelics/dwarf
    tgods/blood belt

    socket gear with ed/str/dex as required for each setup to get maxblock and/or reqs for oath.

    best armor vs casters imo is ed/str/life and switch out for life res charms.
    the easier way is to just make 4 ort 4 thul etc armors vs foh and cold.

    charms basically any sc you can use at high lvl so run/max life/max life/res etc GCs 10max/30life can also be used.

    skilling - max mastery, 1 in everything you need, rest in inc speed

    btw basic 4 socket ethereal weapons are easy to trade and find :)

    to duel other mid levels and take some highs unawares

    oh yeah a teleport amu might be handy too and some damage to mana on jewels unless you chug pots. if not then maybe mana on scs.
