    =o frenzy barb

    ive always wanted to make ashs frenzy signer barb, at first i was thinking of using dual stormlashes but ive recently acquired a doom zerker, so i was thinking of some kind of aura barb with 3 auras, still doing mainly phys damage but with auras to look cool. =o i know arreats may beat dream for ex., but we'll see how it works.

    helm - dream barb helm (looking for one w/ +3 frenzy, and some other nice skills)
    ammy - metalgrid
    weapon1 - doom zerker
    weapon2 - beast zerker
    armor - duress archon
    gloves - dracs
    ring1 - raven
    ring2 - dual leech (6/6)
    belt - dungos? or a nice rare w/ life fhr res
    boots - gores

    ill be using wc skillers toboost my warcry and bo, and not put too many hard points into those.

    holy shock wont really do much, but the holy freeze will be nice to chill and fanat for speed/damage/ar. now that i think of it its kinda like a frost zealot, since ive loaded up on CB, OW and some deadly strike.

    im not sure if 6 ml is enough, i might swap out metalgrids for crescent moon and stick another raven on or something if it doesnt work out.

    20 frenzy
    20 taunt
    20 double swing (or maybe berzerk for a cool synergy)
    20 axe mastery
    20 BO
    1 in warcry
    1 in all nice mastery skills, and then shout/bc
    prereqs
    rest into berzerk or double swing, whichever i didnt do

    lmk, thanks. :)

    i was also considering doing a ww barb with this gear, swapping out dracs for souldrainers maybe? then i could use 2x raven and then swap in fort for duress. just thought frenzy would be more fun and unique.

    strings>dungoes for pvm,since 8% leech>~140 life(not doubled by bo)./w *rikstaker if you dont agree. :lol:

    Zerk synergy isnt worthwile,dont go there.I am not sure if you will have serious resists problem,so consider highlords.Deadly & ias is precious for frenzy barb.If you have a fort,why not use it?

    Frenzy costs 3 mana & the ml from your dual leech ring will more than suffice.

    i was thinking about highlords but then i was worried about res problems.. we'll see.

    i was just thinking duress for teh CB and OW, but i could try fort also.

    thanks for the tip on the belt. but im wearing dracs, wouldnt that be a little too much ll? like 16 and then lifetap which is crazy.

    The belt choice would depend on how your barb plays out,if you are taking too much damage,stick to strings,the magic damage reduction helps too,especially against close range lightning bolts.Try a nos coil or ik belt is another solid option to solve resist problems.Verdungoes doesnt give anything over strings,even the excess leech is better than the 140 life,which isnt really a great deal.

    6%ML should be fine, frenzy doesn't cost much

    berzerk isn't much good synergy wise, at most get a point and have a 2 handed axe on switch or just stick with your lead axe

    without arreats I'm not thinking highly of your resists

    so.. new gear:

    helm - arreats
    ammy - highlords (metalgrid if teh res = boohoo)
    weapon1 - doom zerker
    weapon2 - beast zerker
    armor - fort diamond mail
    gloves - dracs
    ring1 - raven
    ring2 - dual leech (6/6)
    belt - string of ears or a nice rare (i have a couple with huge life, str, i think one has fhr, and res)
    boots - gores

    do you get resist from charms? How many points have you taken in natural resist? It seems like you're going to be a bit low on resist with that gear I'd say ;)

    Why not two beast zerkers?
    18 lvl fanatic aura for a frenzy barb sounds perfect!
