    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

    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..! ;)

    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)

    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..

    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

    The first question that pops on my mind is...

    Why 1331? :p

    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.
