vit 45
ene 10

He is using Atma's wail as armor, Blood Tree Stump for weapon, IK helm and boots, and blade buckle for a belt other items need major upgrading.

Please let me know if im doing this right or ways i can improve him, some attributes are added from items im using at this time

thanks Corey

This isn't bad at all, some areas to concentrate on would be to boost your Vit with your stat points and for skills get your mace mastery and battle orders up.


Otherwise seems like you're doing fine to me.

Well, he should be a tough little bugger.

As spaker said, raise BO...and raise it fast.

Might wanna get one point into Beserk, when you get into hell, things will be physical immune. Berserk is the only skill a barb has that can kill physical immunes.

STR looks good.....throw the rest of your points into VIT.

Well i have one on beserk already and as far as the masteries go i have items that increase them, i actually only put one on mace mastery.

should iron skin and natural resistance be raised as well as bo?

Max mace mastery, you get critical strike chance, ED, AR. Max BO first for life, then work towards shout.

Personally, I would not have placed so many points in str, especially when using IK set. More points in iron skin are useless, seeing as how defense really isn't that great. No more points are needed in natural resists, as past level 13, the returns are steep.

Dexterity looks good, you wont need anymore once you start mace mastery. Keep pumping vitality, leave str where it is.

And, there is no way to get IK armor. But if you want to have a chance to get it, you have to run pindle/baal/or a lvl 82+ area in hell. Or any other hell monster that drops sacred armor.

IK armor is very hard to get. I never got one in about 3 years of D2 play. You can try you luck by do pit run at hell.

Would be more helpful if you listed your skills without mods. I assume your ww is at 20 but are those other skills you listed with or without skill mods? If they are without skill mods, you really wasted a lot on iron skin and nat resistance. :(
Put every point you get into bo until its maxed then max mace mastery, then shout.
