Sounds like it could work but it has the same problem as conc/bash/weird barbarian builds in general. SLOW. Might fall asleep on the keyboard lol, but with grief or something could work

its cool to fall asleep playing knowing all you need to do is click in circles.... set up a water drinking bird and run everywhere.

Re: Pointers for my 1331 PvM-Build..

Me personally, don't care if it's slow..

My main question is: Will I survive Hell with ease..?

After reading some of your previous posts I highly doubt
that your answers were anything close to serious.

I would respect and appreciate your serious inputs..
So please enlighten a fellow gamer..! ;)

Re: Pointers for my 1331 PvM-Build..

The one thing that stood out to me was the use of more points in Iron Skin over Shout.

Shout offers similar defense bonus with alot more benefits: Adds time duration to BO(which I would go 20), Shout, and battle command (which is a benefit to both you - and your merc if you use one) Shout also syns with Berzerk, which can be a useful skill at times. (so basically just leave berzerk at 1pt)

its cool to fall asleep playing knowing all you need to do is click in circles.... set up a water drinking bird and run everywhere.
lol, Just tape the right click down on conc.

Ok, I missunderstood your answers a bit.
But the input on Iron Skin and so forth was good..

I really didn't factor in a Merc when i thought it out.
So after rearranging some skill points to better suit
the use of a Merc and at the same time give BO a boost..

Howl 1
Shout 16
Battle Orders 20

Axe Mastery 20
Increased Stamina 1
Iron Skin 8
Increased Speed 1
Natural Resistance 5

Bash 20
Stun 1
Concentrate 16
Berserk 1

I don't lose any defense in the process, get 12% more out of BO,
and Berserk becomes a viable option for physical resist monsters..
Thanks for your input!

Ps. I will try to stay awake while clicking my way through Hell.. ;)
I'll slap myself once in a while, that usually works..

Re: Pointers for my 1331 PvM-Build..

high life???
i have more life without bo
I think his layout is without any items though, so that's where the big difference will lie initially. His base vita will likely grow accordingly.

Edit: I just checked my life on my BvB, naked with charms removed. Max block, Grief/Sacred Fort build-
BARE BONES:334 vita/1545 base life /3012 life @lvl 21 BO
FULL EQUIP: 414 vita/2863 base life /6001 life @lvl 33 BO


@ZZ - still you got 8 Iron Skin and 16 Shout. Why not 4 Iron/20 Shout? Same reasoning applies as i stated B4.

Peace

Re: Pointers for my 1331 PvM-Build..

the only other thing I'd recommend is save a respec for your mastery. There's not a huge ton of end game axes available (unless your going a RW), but there's a ton of polearms and hammers that fit the bill. So, unless your end game weapon is an axe, you may want to shop pending that criteria.
