Patriarch Pavarotti - the singing barbarian Yes, my pat/mat #14 (second barb pat) has arrived as of about an hour ago. Pavarotti - world famous tenor and big fat guy, was named after my barbarian, he's that damn good. Anyway, here is my stats: Character name : pavarotti Character type : Barbarian Character level : 84 Character exp : 984616080 Strength : 93 Energy : 60 Dexterity : 64 Vitality : 303 Stat Points Rem : 0 Skill Points Rem: 0 Life : 1633 / 1336 Mana : 907 / 66 Stamina : 1184 / 414 Resistances : 75/75/75/75 Items : Arreat's face Wizardspike (x2) Mara's Kaleidoscope Skullders Ire Frost burns Arachnid's mesh Marrowwalks SoJ bul kathos WB +mana/life charms (x6 sc, x1 lc) 2 warcry skillers Skills : 20 warcry 20 battle orders 20 howl 20 taunt 7 taunt 2 shout 1 battle command 1 leap 1 leap attack 1 increased stamina 1 nat res 1 iron skin 1 increased speed Merc : lvl 83 HF merc items : Reapers toll Corpsemourn Tal rasha's horadric crest Total LL: 25% Thanks to duel weilding wizardspike my daggers alone gave me 150 res to all, so with arreats face, nat res and mara's, i was easily at max resistances. With BO i had over 3.5k life and 1.7k mana. War cry was doing around 900 damage and stunning for around 6.6 seconds, which in hell is a long time! This build i was expecting to be tough, but actually, it was good fun. Once warcry was up and going, i was near unstopable. i cant recall getting hit by 1 single normal melee'er in hell. superuniques, uniques and champions do not instantly stun, i think theres a chance of stunning them, but most of them given logn enough would become stunned. I had gotten used to the technique of running striahgt into packs of ranged attackers first, keeping them stunned while the melee'ers would try to swarm me but get hit by warcry and be stuck themselves. This tactic made sure i was safe for 90% of the battles. The minions were a joke, all of them beign stunned (inc lister) instantly while i stood in the middle of the entire pack without fear. It's a damn good feeling! Baal himself was hard, since act bosses are totally immune to the stun effects so he continued to TP around and attack. the battle took abotu 15 minutes in hell, but was the exception to the rule. all other fights werre reletively easy. Keeping my mana going was the biggest worry, i constantyl had full rejus or super mana potions in my belt, and often had to go back to town to stock up again. If anyone is thinking about doing a iron barb, forget it. this build is much more fun, killing over 15 enemies at the same time while not getting scratched beats even the best iron barbs can manage. And the most fun area? hell cows! no ranged, all single minded cows in huge herds. Leap attack into the bigegst of them, then watch as they all stop moving and die, often in unison. the word uber was designed to describe the singer in the moo moo farm.
