    New to Barbarians, need some advice.

    Hi.

    I have decided to build a PvM Barbarian.

    I would like him to use dual Grief PBs or at least 1 of them, because i don't want to sell them, and i do want to try a nice Barb build.

    While scrolling through the Barb build sticky i got a bit confused with the builds provided..

    Can anyone suggest me what to try with the possibilty of using Grief (or even dual) ? I understand some WW builds would be nice ?


    Thanx in advance !

    EDIT! Well , to make it more clear, what build (PvM) should i go for with the following gear i already have, i dont want to sell anything to buy smth instead, though.


    2 x Grief PB
    Forti AP
    Some Arreats
    Some Verdungos
    Some Gores
    Some Draculs

    Well, i can change basically any item except 2x Griefs (i cant get LW, eBotdz Death etc.), i wanna make the best use of the items i posess on a barb.

    EDIT 2 : Just realised, if it makes suggestions easier , i could afford Beast RW, or even Death, but with some difficulties

    if you wanted to use both Griefs, the only choice you have is Frenzy

    good idea. you could also try whirlwind, but that's boring IMO

    well, i kinda understood that grief wouldnt be best for WW

    anyway, i read the most important part of frenzy guide (not that written by ASH , but the other one) i read the one which is also good in details when facing ubers,

    and ive got a question to people who play such build

    is enigma your choice ? i mean, has someone got similar item setup as im kinda going to use

    if ur gonna make a pvm barb instead of ww u should go for a beserk barb, no iron maiden woot, and lots of magic dmg. U'll kill the bosses super fast to.

    if you are making him to do ubers, i don't think berserk is a good choice, as you cannot leech with it, due to your damage which leech is based on physical damage.

    your equipment looks pretty good to me as far as making your frenzier

    Now that youve said it, im starting to think about Berserker with ebotd instead of frenzy, just because i already have a nice char meant for ubers... and also because as i understand beserker can run chaos nicely ??

    Re: New to Barbarians, need some advice.

    Hi again.
    I have decided to switch to Berserk barbarian just because i understand he can be used on more areas than Frenz, which is great for UT.

    I need some experienced Berserker Barb user to share his setup, gear.
    I want to be able to do chaoes quickly.
    So, what should i change here?

    Arreats
    Ebotd CB
    Stormshield
    COH/ENI (which better ?)
    Draculs
    Verdungos
    Raven and xxxx (still unknown )
    Gores

    Re: New to Barbarians, need some advice.

    For berserker, I would suggest changing Draculs to Laying of Hands, or even Margus. I strongly recommend eDeath Cb instead of eBotd Cb, but it's just personal preference. Dual raven and highlord is very needed.

    I strongly recommend that you read this guide: http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=553789

    IMO, enigma is not needed for melee characters, expecialy when you have increased speed and stamina. one point in each should be ok
