Patriach ww - Titan WW Barb

Hello from the dark side. :)
Now that I've decided to provide a bit of target practice on the Moor, I had to level an SC character. After several attempts I managed not to tick the HC box and ww, the Barbarian, was born. Pretty name, isn't it?
Putting points into Vit would be extremely silly for SC questing, so the Titan bit was obvious. A big stick seemed appropriate to take full advantage of all that juicy off-weapon ed:

Likes: big sticks, life leech, long whirls on the beach
Dislikes: unleechables, PIs, mana burn

Merc: eth Reaper's (Shael) / Andy's (Fervor) / Enigma BP
Gameplay: Titan all the way (axes first, respec'ed to polearms at 69). Made for juicy damage, even naked. /p8 all the way through Normal & NM, /p7 for Hell A1-A4, /p1 for A5 because I got bored.
The merc was kind enough to carry the PI solution. No, not Reaper's. That's not a PI solution on p7. Enigma of course. Teleport was just a quick switch of armor away. :thumbsup: Enigma is actually an awesome merc armor. Makes him run faster and boosts his Might aura. Highly recommended. Well, wearing it yourself is better, but I was going for a nice looking LCS.

Deaths along the way? Annoyingly, yes. One to the explosion of the FE Council member in NM and another in A5 Hell to a Cursed/EFast/EStrong Frenzytaur pack in the Ancient's Way...
Otherwise ww was exciting but surprisingly safe. Long whirls through packs with multiple bosses were fun. Sometimes both the life and the mana bulb emptied and refilled several times during one whirl. 35% ll 4tw :)

Is there a point to this write-up? Umm, no, not really. Sorry. How about this:

Make a Titan. Vitality is overrated.

See you on the Moor! :wave:
(there will be levelling and another respec...)

Bonus: Guardians Gone Wild!!! (sfw)

That was a nice profile card of the barb.Congrats on the Pat.

As a HC player , I sure love to have a guardian snapshot like that one myself(My count now is 2 and one among the two already died while cowing :D ).

/* scrcrw included in the Bingo book. Agenda : Stealing his HC stashes tonight :p */

gg error in the thread title

Thanks guys!

@KT Killing Guardians is half the fun. ;) I think I stand at 2 deeds out of 16 Guardians - both sorcs (90 and 92 iirc)...
My HC stashes wouldn't help you very much, most of the really nice stuff is already in SC (including everything on this barb).

@maareek My next Barb will definitely of the zealing kind, Titan+eBotD just had been planned for awhile longer.

@Tanksaabas Indeed, huge damage = huge fun :thumbup:

I laughed quite a lot on that bit. Your approach to SC after Guarrdianing quite a few chars (impressive screenshot, btw) is just... wow.

Congrats on the Patriarch! Enigma on the moron? Really? Right... 1.13c 4tw

Good luck on the moor.

I'm a sucker for big numbers and that LCS is a huge lollypop.

Congrats on your first(?) pat ;)
