    Plague Barb viable?

    I've never made a Plague runeword before, but have been looking at it and what characters might make use of it. What strikes about a barbarian is the ability to use two of these axes and hence stack the cleansing aura to ridiculous levels.

    Along with fade and venom from treachery, %to poison damage from trang gloves, and perhaps, ctc poison nova from carrion winds, and andy's visage, you'd get a barb with nice (extremely nice poison) resistance, some useful poison damage, and a lot of poison novas.

    Skillwise I'm leaning towards frenzy for the speed both in triggering novas and just getting around without any tele.

    Would this work as a stylish way to fight other poison characters? Would it be worth the effort to make one?

    Sounds like a cool runeword. Can I see it?

    The plague runeword is not a working runeword AFAIK.
