    Welcome to the SPF! Hope you find a guide that works for you in those mantioned above. If your skill points aren't too spread out, it's probably not too late for your level 16 guy. Or just start over!

    Welcome to the SPF! :howdy: I hope you enjoy your stay and learn lots about the game(or shall I say addiction). Maybe tell us a little about your barb you have started. We will be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have. And like everyone else says: Read the FAQ and check out the guides list, there are two VERY nice guides for the Barb lurking around there.​

    EDIT: Do you have the Expansion or still running Classic?

    howdy! :howdy:

    the FAQs have lots of good info in them, as others have pointed out, but the real basics aren't generally given a lot of air-time. if you tell us what sort of problems your having, we can almost certainly help you out.

    :lol: Welcome to the show. Reminds me of my first character, also a barb. Never played the game before so I just put points everywhere. If it's worth anything, he still gained Slayer status. Right now he's clvl 51 and his best skill is dying.

    Just as a joke, here's his skill/stat distro:
    Cries: Howl/Taunt/Shout/Battle Cry/Find Pot - all 1
    Masteries: Sword 18, Axe 1, Mace 3, Iron Skin 3, Nat Res 4
    Combat: Bash 6, DSwing 6, Leap/Stun/DThrow/Leap Att/WW 1, Conc 2, Frenzy 3
    Str 120, Dex 92, Vit 100, En 28

    I still run him once in a while though he doesn't tend to last long. I look at him now and wonder how he ever got so messed up. :scratch:

    If anyone has any salvage ideas, I'm listening.

    max warcry, max BO, put all the rest into some attack skill... perhaps concentrate? with all the monsters not moving for 6 seconds, you should be able to get a little bit further even thoguh your damage output will suck. :lol:

    Welcome to the SPF :howdy:

    As stated, the stickies at the top of this page will give you more information than you could ever hope to use. And for any questions not readily answered, this forum is a great resource, and a pretty decent place to hang out. Enjoy your stay here.

    Put all remaining skill points into double throw, and make him a wand berserker. :cheesy:

    Welcome Hobie! My first characters were barbs and I still love 'em to death. Good luck and see you around!
