Need help, WW MF Barb equipment

Hi there,

I am looking for a good MF Barb equipment setup, and I know IK is a good setup for Barb MF, but it's so boring, I've had 3 IK Barbs already. And IK Maul doesn't hit the last WW breakpoint etc...

Some of you might think, get a Sorc, or a Hammerdin. The answer: I have a Blizz MF Sorc and a Hammerdin (too bad no Enigma ). Well, the point is, I love Barbs and Summon Necros, I have a 85 Summoner, he is my Hell Cow guy.

But now to the point. Do you know a good Barb MF setup, or even better, guide? The cost of the items is no problem, I can pay most items in the game.

I would really appreciate any good MF setups, or guides, thanks in advance :thumbsup:

And eh Halciet, I'm sorry for posting this twice, but my other title just won't change after editing. That's the reason I have reposted. Please dont ban me ;)

Tombreaver (if eth -zod/edjewel/shael) since 10% more ias is need to hit lwbp.Packs resists & mf.ideal.
Tals armor(topaz)-resists & mf.
Chancies or souls if you havent got a dual leech ring.
Wartravs
Highlords/dual leech/nagel or raven depending on preference.
gheeds of course.
Arreats topaz(trust me better than shako,stats,leech,resists are important too)

This setup provides ~350+ mf easily,I guess...(sry too lazy to calculate :eek: ) add charms to that, & you are up right there.

For the build,max ww,bo,mastery & shout & you are good to go.

But BTW its too late to mf now,ladder is mature & uniques except high end stuff like cleaver,fathom etc.. go for trash,suggest you farm for socketables with 0% mf.

Jerk! My idea!

Well, not really. But I've been advocating this for a long time :lol:

As for your advice on socketables, I half-agree with you. They're easier to find but don't go for nearly as much as high-end uniques go. Depends where you seel the items, of course.

Good, thanks a lot.

But I have 2 questions:

- What is the worth of a perfect (or nearly perfect) Tomb Reaver
- Would an Enigma fit my Barb good too? I almost have one ready :thumbsup: .
Only need the Ber.

I am going to make one of those to run The Pits and Baal :uhhuh:

Values differ between realms. It also depends on whether you're looking for the ethereal version or not.

You could ask in the Trade Values forum, or if you're lucky, your realm's respective Trade forum might have a Price Guide stickied.

IK Maul does reach lwbp. You just need to add 30IAS into the 2 sockets.
IK set is a good all rounder but the damage and MF are not that great. I prefer dual wield.

Eh, well, I have calculated my resistances like this,yes, Natural Resistance too, and it isn't max in Hell...

What should I do to increase those resistances?

And eh, for the MF being useless, I just like MF'ing. For socketables I have my cow necro :thumbsup:

OK, and this is one noob question, but Goldwrap has 10 IAS. Does that mean that I don't have to put a Shael in my Tomb Reaver? Because TR needs 10 IAS, and goldwrap has it.

Off-weapon IAS does not effect whirlwind.

Max resistance in hell is nice but if you really can't hit it just sacrifice some mf and slap on a t-gods or wisp projector ring and you'd be safe from Black Souls and maybe have a dwaftstar ring in stash for high fire dmg areas and you'd do fine :D Ravenfrost is ring slot #1 already and on top of providing some dex/AR it also has cold absorb. Enigma is great for mf barb as less str = more life hehe
If you wanna go axe/sword + shield a grief zweihander or 34+ias zerker hits lwwp and gives ITD for the masses :D I always wondered if its ok to go sword/shield with a range 2 like phase blade grief for PvM as is great for its 'no repair' feature but someone who actually did it could be a better source of info i guess :D
