Patriarch Übereifer WW Zeal Barb

One of my less successful 'Passion' builds. Originally intended to be a more typical Zealbarb, he played all the way to lvl 64 with just normal attack until he could equip 'Passion' zerker axe.

However, after discovering that my Druid would only be able to zeal in human form, I decided polearm would not be the greatest choice for him. So, he turned over this hurty stick to Übereifer:

Plenty of extra points..


'Passion' Giant Thresher
Crown of Theives
'Fortitude' Archon Plate
Seraph Hymn @Carawolk TFT!

Nothing special, lots of resists.

Finds: Wizardspike
Runes: Hel HF: Fal (NM), Gul (Hell)

It was quite entertaining zealing away with this big thing. Zeal with rangadder 4 is something to behold. He could zeal at both stairwells in front of Shenk at the same time! But, WW still ended up being his main attack. Zeal was nice for targeting single monsters, or dealing with mana burn. But, any other combat skill would have worked just as easily.

I will say, having a Rogue merc, hit blinds target was the greatest thing for her survival. Using WW, you're not really blocking any monsters from reaching merc. But, just whirling and keeping them blinded worked nicely.

Belated congrats on the Pat.

One of my favourite builds was a Zeal Barb, using Passion in his off-hand for the oskill and Grief in the main hand to dish out a lot of damage quick. Killed fast, stayed alive suprisingly easily (one death at the end of Act 5 Hell iirc).
