    Polebarb

    I used to run one of these when LOD first came out...

    He was great, except you couldnt find high enough damage poles to do the job.

    With all the new runewords, I think this would be totally possible.

    Anyways, my high character is a hammerdin with no MF. I just found a Superior Cryptic Axe (14% ED).

    I am thinking to socket it & try to trade for the DOOM runes and use that for this polebarb. (Which may take a bit)

    Any suggestions? I am not looking to create the "godliest" barb ever.

    I just think the polebarb WW is fun and unusual.

    I suggest an eth tomb reaver or botd gpa.
    They are totally viable still, just watch for IM.

    BotD eth great poleaxe is cheaper than any "doom" elite polearm and is far better, in terms of IAS (hits last ww breakpoint), leech and damage.

    Cheaper to make that is. But so much more expensive to buy one that has good stats.

    That is why you get (trade) the zod and vex yourself. Go to hell pit and farm there with a fast killing character with 0% mf until you find that poleaxe (shouldn't take too long). Even the lowest % of life/mana leech on BoTD is damn good and the lowest damage % of BoTD is still far better on an eth great poleaxe than the highest damage % on "doom".

    Not to mention that *gasp* it could actually be a good ebotd!
