    New to Diablo/Barb

    Hello all, noob question here for my barb...

    I'm making a frenzy barb (first toon!), and have a general question regarding the skill.

    Up to this point I have been right clicking once to activate frenzy, and then using double swing for about ~4 seconds then hitting another frenzy, then more double swings....

    Anyhow, I read somewhere that only frenzy will receive the damage bonus, so my question is, should I just right click and hold frenzy for attack, or just hit it once and double swing my eyes out?

    Thanks in advance!

    Why using double swing when you can use frenzy?
    Stick with frenzy all the time : greater dmg, faster hits, frw bonus.

    *Try to get some leeching items (amy/weps/rings/gloves) and goods ias as well, and you'll be set.

    I've been doing that with much better success, thanks!

    My reasoning was that double swing would accelerate the frenzy faster, jeeze was I wrong hehe!

    Having a *ton* of fun with him, and this game in general... Recovering WoW tank, fury warrior at heart, Frenzy is like Flurry on steroids... and crack :D

    Got dual lightsabres and me and a buddy are duo'n through Nightmare, we should beat Baa'l this week :afro:

    Great site, glad to see a strong community many years after this game came out.

    Thanks for the help!
