Patriarch Citius - FRW Frenzy Barbarian

Grape

Diabloii.Net Member
Citius, altius, fortius, said Baron Pierre de Coubert.

Citius, citius, citius says my new Barbarian.

Having recently done Barbarian who went all in with elemental damage, I now did it again, but with all the faster run and walk gear I could put on. This character was inspired by the Olympic games. I'll let someone else do the altius and fortius parts now, though :rolleyes:


How does the sprinter from the Sanctuary look like?

This video sums pretty much what this character was about:

That pair of crafted gloves was used before the Dracul's became available. I also used those for Diablo and Baal fights to have some crushing blow. Main weapons were the Crainte Vomirs, but also the switch with Lawbringer/Crescent Moon was used, especially in areas with a lot of undeads like Chaos Sanctuary.

Character screens (first with Crainter Vomirs, second with Lawbringer/Crescent Moon):

Journey

Normal was twinked first with some envy jeweled stuff, and then some jewels of carnage filled items. The twist was that I used at first full Clegclaw's Brace set. And after the first act i double swinged with two of those swords. Those reached pretty high damage numbers with my charms and jewels.

From level 27 to 51 I used dual 'Honor' Dimensional Blades. Adding some basic melee gear before all the rest became available. FRW charms were added at their right levels, so I pretty much flied trough the NM.

That moment in the video is when I started Hell. Act 1 and 2 were played really recklessly running, as I felt that was what this character was about. From act 3 and LK, I started to take it little bit slower and killing more stuff on my way.

Screenshots:
Screenshot959.jpg
Alkor blocked me! Probably wanted to rob my jewelry for some fishy alchemy stuff... Like giving that golden bird was not enough!

Screenshot963.jpg
Lawbringer was handy in Arcane Sanctuary and Tal Rasha's Tomb.

Screenshot966.jpg
I used some Taunt also. With Life Tap and the possibility of Decrepify, it was not really needed, but I had it at high levels anyway.

Screenshot972.jpg
Travi was full of boss packs, and they made dealing with Councils a bit more interesting. Proper battle, I'd say.

Screenshot978.jpg
The shortest act took me the longest. Simply because I wanted to kill some more. And boy there was lot to kill. Chaos was quite easy as I used the Lawbringer switch most of the time. I suffered my only death in the Outer Steppes, where I met too many souls. Could've been avoided, but meh. Getting all the FRW means my lightning resistance was little lower than I usually aim for.

Screenshot981.jpg
Act 5 is much about the monster spawns. I was really lucky and didn't encounter almost anything dangerous. This little party at the beginning of the Glacial Trail was nice though. This character felt pretty fragile at times, but taking it little bit slower mostly took care of that feeling. When your backpack is full of tricks like teleport, life tap and decrepify, you can be safe with little bit patience. Running away from dangerous situations was also no problem. :cool:


Screenshot988.jpg
Bosses were really easy in general. As were the Ancients and waves. Closest I was when the second wave almost had me to my surprise.


Last thoughts

Things I'm happy about:

- Using Crainte Vomirs probably for the first time
- Getting 1.07 Mavina's some use, too
- Playing Frenzy Barb since a long long time
- Women's 10.000 meters world record was broken while I was running around with Citius


Things I'm little bit concerned about:

- Without the handy tool box (Life Tap, Decrep, Teleport), I would've been in deep problems.
- Knowing that my solution to that could unfortunately have been increasing raw power in terms of more damaging weapons.

Well, glad this went this way.

Now someone go do it with proper circlet 2/30 instead of that lousy 1/20 of mine. Inventory full of 1.09 5FRW SCs and of course dual Zod bugged Eth 'Wind' Berserker Axes.

Seriously though, I'm pretty sure more ordinary Frenzier experiences almost the same feeling of speed running, because of the severe diminishing returns. Instead I want to encourage people to use some interesting weapon combos. Barbarian can have four different weapons, so there's space for many things to try :)

Thanks for reading! Questions and comments are welcome!

Run Citrius Run ! ;) Also, nice story :) And the video. Nice riffs. I am not really s(h)ure but is it Motorhead and Lemmy?

Very cool build! How difficult was it to control where you wanted to go? I sometimes have trouble with Frenzy builds and will overshoot where I'm wanting to run to most of the time.

@RadTang - Yep, that's Motorhead's Speedfreak

Thanks! Yeah, as Vilcor said, it is indeed :)

Thanks!

During some areas with more open space like Act 1 outside it was no that hard. And I got little used to it, having played with Frenzy immediately from level 24 and increasing my speed all the time, little by little. But probably part of why I felt fragile at times was because I could rush into nasty situations by accident because of my almost uncontrollable speed. That's why I took it little slower towards the end and didn't rush that long parts anymore, killing more monsters.

lol!!! Citius - The Olympic Champion and record holder - The Flash. I love it.

I think D2 speedrunner MrllamaSC also did a similar build. I know FRW has diminishing returns, but I still think Citius should max Increased Speed just for fun:)

I used to have a FRW Assassin with maxed Burst of Speed and full of FRW gear, and she still stays as Champion (I don't want to Mat her since she is the running Champion of all chars I've got), but she will certainly end up with only a Silver medal in the Olympics when competing with Citius, right ? ;)

During some areas with more open space like Act 1 outside it was no that hard. And I got little used to it, having played with Frenzy immediately from level 24 and increasing my speed all the time, little by little. But probably part of why I felt fragile at times was because I could rush into nasty situations by accident because of my almost uncontrollable speed. That's why I took it little slower towards the end and didn't rush that long parts anymore, killing more monsters.
I know that feeling. Had some nasty teleports in my career... or misclicks.

When I saw your 283 FRW, I though holy shit, barb with ferrari but luckily, not even Diablo had courage to give you a speeding ticket ;)

lol!!! Citius - The Olympic Champion and record holder - The Flash. I love it.

I think D2 speedrunner MrllamaSC also did a similar build. I know FRW has diminishing returns, but I still think Citius should max Increased Speed just for fun:)

I used to have a FRW Assassin with maxed Burst of Speed and full of FRW gear, and she still stays as Champion (I don't want to Mat her since she is the running Champion of all chars I've got), but she will certainly end up with only a Silver medal in the Olympics when competing with Citius, right ? ;)
I knew someone might point that out as I didn't go all in with the FRW after all? I left it to someone elso to venture this path even further..

Assassins are quite fast. She probably gets the silver, but might win in right conditions! This guy needs some enemies to speed himself up! :p

Nice!

Now do one in 1.07 :D
Remembering how fast my Javazon run, that'd would be crazy!

Great !!! Well done. Frenzy Barbs are just so much fun.
Thanks! They are indeed, and the build lefts quite a lot of different options, especially with the weaponry!
