Sword:Fury BB
Helm:Arreats
Shield:SS
Armor:160ed/60max of the whale

Ring 2:bitter hold (rare dual statring on USwest)
Belt:verdungoes
Boots:gore riders
Ammy:Highlords

STR:enough for items
Dex;enough for max block
Vit: all points left go here

do you think this build will work good for pvp and do you think i should switch out gores for war travs and my ammy for a +barb skill dual stat rare? or should i keep my current item set up? tanx

If I'm not mistaken, max/ed jewels aren't working correctly in armor atm. You also might want to switch out the fury balrog blade if you can, since fury has fairly low dmg by 1.10 standards.

Aye, you can definately switch out your weapon, as it's fairly weak for pvp in the patch, and like m1 said, ed/max jewels in armor/helms/weapons do not work correctly anymore; thus, you'd be much better off with either 160/36 ed/str armor, or, preferably, Enigma. If you went with Enig, you could go REALLY low on str (i have 81 myself), which would leave you with a ton of points for vit.

Gore Riders are good though, and Highlord's Wrath is pretty much the best barb amulet around nowadays; the only time you might need to replace it is in bvb, when up against a huge defense opponent where you'd need the ar from 2x Angelic Rings and the Angelic Ammy. You might wanna look into getting Steelrends if you can, as they add a lot of damage/defense, though I don't know how wealthy you are in general.

Well, you might have to stick with your FBB, depending on just how rich you are. BotD is the best thing around, though you still may be able to find a nice rare sword with over 300% ed and some ias on it. Perhaps one of the new uniques would be nice too, like Azurewrath, but it all depends on what you can manage.
