    Polearm barbs (trying not to sound redundant)

    Im gonna make a polearm barb but i've never made one so i have a few questions..
    Btw, this will be for non-ladder, non-hardcore (us west if it makes a difference).

    Weaponry:
    -Cruel warpike of quickness?
    -Bonehew? (for lvling till i can use better)
    -botd warpike?

    warpikes have the best dmg, but is thier weapon speed and range too low to be worthwhile?

    Stats:
    whats important? AR? Dmg? Life? (i have 10 warcry gc's)
    Im fairly confident i can get a lvl 42 or so BO and Shout but should i focus on dex or str or vit?

    If im a polearm barb, should i be a ww, conc, zerk or something different?

    For now my gear is semi-ok. Its arreats, barb valor, rspiral, rfrost, tgods, wartravs/aludurs, ik gloves, and i think i have a rare +1 barb skills ammy or somethin.

    Like i said earlier, i have 10 warcry grandcharms, but no small charms. maybe fhr sc's? r/w sc's?

    Also, if a thread like this was made please dont flame. just post the link and i'll gladly answer my own questions.

    im making a pike barb myself at the moment as well...

    the thing with a war pike is that while it cant reach the last breakpoint with the botd runeword, it can as a magical weapon. Get yourself a cruel war pike of quickness.. socket it with 2 shaels.. and you reach the last breakpoint.. :clap:

    Besides.. a barb holding a pike is the coolest looking character in the game :yep:

    actually a barb with a scythe is cooler.

    He's nonladder so he won't be able to upgrade to elite....and yes a pike is a spear so if u are a pole barb i wouldn't recommend using this :p. However what u might wanna try using your bonehew with 2 shaels which will hit the last bp. If u can find one that's perfect or close to perfect u'll have about 600 max damage, which isn't bad at all. Hmm, you have a ? by BOTD so I won't list this as your main option, but a BOTD in an eth great poleaxe would hit the last breakpoint and have some insane damage. I hope this helps man.
