    Viva la Tomby!

    Now that I finally got it together little while ago, I wanted to be smashing demons' faces soon enough with it.

    I knew already this would be one of the first things I wanted to do with it: I've had 2/20FCR Barb amulet stashed for a good while, and I wanted to do a 200FCR singer around it. I figured already then that I'd need a PI solution, and that Bersker sharing one synergy with the War Cry would be a good fit... I decided to put this whole idea to a hold until I had this one weapon ready to be used!

    I'd keep putting more points to the Polearm Mastery should I keep leveling him. With Battle Cry Berskerk hits just well, but I was sometimes lazy to use it. 55 stat points left, because I was undecided between vitality and energy. Seeing as he hadn't any serious mana problems, but was little vulnerable to damage sometimes, I may put all of those to vitality.

    Items:

    Barb himself used Enigma and was then all was about FCR, using rare Tiara, crafted Amulet, 1.07 Wizzy, Suicide Branch, Magefist, Arachnid's and two rare FCR ring plus caster crafted boots. Switch was the E Tomby itself, which I was swinging at 13 FPA.

    Backpack aka inventory was full of Sounding GCs and life/mana SCs. Merc was rather easy choice: Insight all the way.

    Journey:


    With my end game items' levels in my mind (89 for the amulet and 84 for the TR), I knew I needed to do some serious early Hell leveling to be able to play with my planned build all the way through Hell. Luckily there's Pits and luckily there was a nice little tournament, where I could MF and level this character at the same time. I started running Pits when I was level 65, when tournament ended I was ** and little more. Then I turned from P1 to P3 runs and achieved 89 pretty soon. I played as a regular Singer all the time, but I never used any respecs, so I was immediately ready to go.

    Normal and NM was ran through as a Singer as well, though that's pretty rough for levels 1-30 - I used my 1.07 Raven Claw to speed things up. After level 30 he flew by the act really fast, Singer is a really good mid game questing character.

    Here I am! And you're rocket... ehm demon queen! Oh yea, any case. By the end of Act I I was still getting to know the build, but I was liking it already a lot.

    Me: I'm on a Nightrain! I love that stuff! Alhizeer: no, this is Arcane Sanctuary!

    Tomb Reaver can reach monsters from far away, especially handy against mana burners like this.

    Welcome to the jungle! I could Howl all them away, but I liked this one even more: stun all the little groups with War Cry and kill them standing still.

    Not liking these too close to my skin!

    Hephasto was a disappointment. Guy could barely hurt us. Broke his hellish forge, and it popped some gems and an Um rune. In the Chaos Sanctuary I used Howl quite liberally like a true Zerker. Infector was a bit dangerous, otherwise no problems. Diablo got sandwiched by me and merc, D targeting me, so it was all good.

    I visited both the Icy Cellar and the Drifter Cavern. Icy had these guys with another pack wit Might nearby, good thing I didn't woke them before these were down.

    When you cry long enough, even these guys get stunned. Then it's good to switch to Zerk.

    One of the WSK levels had really nasty double boss pack of snakes. Throne had souls, dolls and mummies. How nice, luckily we could handle them really well. Waves with War Cry are really easy. Lister I Zerked down in the end. Baal took a while, because I hadn't any crushing blow equipment with me, but fell after few minutes at most.

    Hell was played P1-P3. With more careful play higher setting would be possible but slower. Now the pace was hectic and fast and I could enjoy the feeling of 200% FCR the most.

    Barb himself was not very sturdy without any block and low DR, not maximized resists on Zerk switch etc. but that was to be expected. I enjoyed playing him a lot however, and try to keep most of the items on him for a while and mess around a little :)

    Thanks for reading! Questions and comments are welcome!

    PS. some problems loading my video to the Youtube. I'll try later again and post it here.

    Edit. Works:

    Nicely done, that weapon is pure class. Did the reanimate help in any way?

    Cool stuff, also love those fittingly selected rock classics in your vids! That reminds me I should at some point level my Singer a bit at some point... just too much stuff to do. :)

    Congrats on the Pat. That is quite some gear. I like the 1.07 Wizzy.

    Great writeup and screenshots, and good video as well! Interesting playstyle swapping to Berserk too; looks like quite the active and fast playstyle.

    Thanks all!

    Recommended! Things like Shael'd upgraded Ribcrakcer would work wonders, I'm sure, and you'd be a faster boss killer I'm sure.

    Thanks! Loving the weapon too... hope to put it to a use again. I noticed them blocking some hits now and then but in general they didn't help a lot with a fast moving and teleing character like this. I hope they would stick with you when you teleport!

    Thanks!

    It's always like that with D2; you finish something but you've already two new things to do, at least.

    Thanks, T :)

    Now that I spent one Zod for unperfect item... I kind of would like to do that with one or two other items already. Got to finish the sept first, I guess

    1.07 wizzy certainly is sweet, although it doesn't really make difference in this case besides against Conviction. I think I have some better 1.07 caster boots already, in terms of total +mana they would grant at least. Wanted to use this 1.13 pair of mine, that is quite nice imo.

    1.07 FCR/MPK rings could have also been a good fit, but maybe another time for those, then. I wonder if you could hire an Act I Faith merc with those and still keep the mana up.

    Thanks!

    It was a very fun way to play! Compared to my usual MFing singer playing, there was a lot more to do now. And I didn't have that much experience with Berskerk, only some random Pindle running and the usual PI solution for Barbs in general, so it was nice to use it very actively now.

    Sweet hat Grape. But why the P Sapphire? Merc has Insight, you have BO. Did you have mana issues?

    I thought I would need mana more than anything else. I socketed it before actually questing in Hell. Probably good old Um rune would have been better, since Zerking side wasn't having full resists.

    In the end I didn't have mana issues although War Cry burns mana faster than Insight regenerates. Higher players settings and that mana would've been more needed.

    Really well, stunning helps and if some monsters manages to burn, step back for half a second and Insight is doing its job.

    Thanks!

    Thanks BKC!
