    why no Battle Command? with Battle Order syngries it will last awhile. btw, you have like near imposible gear to get. what are the stats on 1.08 Arreat's Face, i never seen one. Dual Gimmershreds are great for throwing too. you could also make a BotD Eth Zerker/SS instead of greatpolearm. :D

    yes you are right i left out battle commands it's like 1 more lvl to bo

    stats on 08 arreat face is:
    +2 barbarian skills
    +30 to life
    +1 to combat skills
    + 0.5 max damage per lvl
    +25% ehanced defense
    15% target def
    [this means -15% def from enemy,crucial for throwing since throwing weapons cant have sockets and thus no eth]

    Dual Gimmershreds or other throwing weapons arent being used/mentioned is because of range problem...
    only javs have good range for throwing
    but Dual Gimmershreds are good for pvm

    as for why not botd zerker/ss,reason is pretty simple
    botd/ss is common mine is unique ^ ^
    blocking isnt really as crucial as compared to 1.09 because most pvp players now adays are casters[hammerdins/fohers,blizzard/fireball sorc's,bone nercoes,wind druids,trappers etc]
    common melee like smiters ignores blocking/def thus blocking is useless

    these reasons made me choose the botd great poleaxe as my choice of weapon as it has a high chance of a 1 hit ko with berserk or 1 whirlwind
    defintely better against casters since u wont need shield and damage is king :xears:

    great poleaxe does more damage thats why it's being used but giant thresher does have a coolness factor and a faster berserk :xcool:

    Well being that alot of people wont go to lvl 90, not to mention 99. But lvls 85-** are not impossible, I would stick more in shout I think. I mean vs alot of other classes besides barb/paly/and jabzons theres no need. But I like shout for this kinda build.

    I clicked doublethrow on my zerk barb 1 time, and if your not fighting the classes mention above, 1 point in DT, and its mastery...you can pretty much tear up all the other magelike classes. Tho a trapsin are like 50/50 there. Some can block, some can't. Its just hard fighting meleers with doublethrow, so you'll prob just use WW there, so thats why I mention maybe take 10 outta DT, and add to shout.

    Just my 2 cents..nice read.:)

    yes adding addtional skill points to shout would be viable too since it's a synergy for berserk and gives more def although it adds less damage and no ar compared to adding more points into berserk.

    but adding more points in shout is still good since against melee sins with whirlwind which is common by the way,is very good since whirlwind assn's do not have eth

    thanks for your input cyberhawk and if i get a lot more ideas/inputs i'll make a guide on it and probably more on barb vs barb and the typical s/s barb too

    gogo guys :clap:
