Patriarch Broken, a multi-purpose MF hybrid frenzier Cheerio, cheerio. A new (and fairly interesting for a change) pat. Initially I wanted an all-around mf melee char that could do AT, pits, baalrunning, pindle, whatnot, withouth specializing to any of them. Also something I could play in window mode without putting much effort to it. Like always, everything is self-found. In the planning stage I started to list things I'd want, and tried to incorporate as many of them as I could: Noticeable phys damage (check) Some elemental/magical damage (check and check) high CB/OW (check) ability to utterly annihilate undeads (check) high life and good survivability (check) fast attack (check) static field (check!) Essentially, the build is as follows: Barb Broken, level 85 Stats: Str: 151 (91) Dex: 144 (99) Vit: 364 (320) Ene: base Skills: Frenzy 20 (29) Double swing 20 (29) Bo 20 (30 with switch) Taunt 20 (27) 1 in iron skin, resists, zerk, battle command, battle cry, hork, prequs 1 in axe mastery, sword mastery next point goes to inc speed, remaining to axe mastery Essentials with might etc auras, no enchant: 3905 life, 19ll, 7ml with offhand, 132mf, 23dr% frenzy, main hand: 8178 ar, 1958-3034 LCS damage, 16cs 46ds, 15cb, 35ow offhand: 8337 ar, 2811-5908 LCS damage, 16cs 88ds, 65cb, 35ow zerk: 7196 ar, 1689-2649 LCS damage Kit: W1: azurewrath (256%, +8, 12lvl) +15ias/81 ar jewel W2: edeath ettin (377ed) switch: dual spirits, dunno where my echoing weps are Head: arreat's /ias jewel torso: coh archon belt: dungo's boots: gores amu: highlords ring1: raven 17dex 249ar ring2: wispy 19% absorb 20mf gloves: dracs 8ll 12str Charms: Gheeds 40% Fanatic GC of susta Sharp GC of susta Sharp GC of inertia Steel GC of susta Steel GC of life Sharp LC of vita Sharp LC of susta Steel LC of vita Fine SC of vita Fine SC of balance Steel SC of vita toxic SC of anthrax ruby SC of balance the rest filled with 7mfsc's with misc second mods Might merc with eth upped shaftstop /res jewel vamp gaze /ias jewel eth crescent moon cryptic axe Never done dual type barb before, with high +skills as this has, there wasn't any need to put points to masteries. The ar is a bit low, could be improved with enchant but I'm too lazy to mule him one. Was fairly tricky to play till I finally got azurewrath to the main hand. Now it seems to rock like nothing before. No troubles in pits, AT or baaling, pindle dies too with ease. Died a couple of times, to fanat extra strong moon lords and to some other random fanat extrafast things, levelled in flayer jungle till finally hit 85, then through baal in a breeze. Forges were um/um, some misc items dropped on the way, nothing extraordinary. Lazy mf is the key element to this build, and it seems to do perfectly well at that. Hork is always a nice bonus too.
