    Looks like you have a bit too much strength, and likewise, Drac's are far superior to Steelrends. That open wounds is probably what's eating you alive.

    1)You need to change your armor to either duress or fort.enigma is crap for BVB.Duress gives nice 33% ow & fort grants 300% dmg boost.

    2)Your defense is low,should be around 25k to do well in BVB,its low since you are using enigma & you have put 5 in nat resists,those points were better off being invested in ironskin.

    3)You ar seems a *bit* low-are you using enchant? are you using nice ar/lifers or likewise?

    4)Like Hals said,use draculs.

    A hybrid will always lose against a pure BvB. A good BvB has 25k+ defense and easily 25k ar, together with higher ow than you. If you want to defeat other good barbs, you're gonna have to make a BvBer. Also,str too high and life seems quite low. My old bvb had 4.8k life without enigma. Oh, and an Ettin Beast isn't good, get a BA :)

    Beast BA shouldn't cost more than ber+5sox ba (20 gems?). Even a crap BA will be a lot better than a perfect ettin. Dracs are better, it's been calculated, maybe search for it. 25k ar= use beast+ar/life scs. 25k defense= some eth armor, like eth arkys, eth duress or eth stone (duress preferred). This will suck vs casters though.

    What about gore riders? They are pretty damn good in all duels.

    Oh right, I missed that part. Gores are way better than treks (even eth perfect ones) for a barb :)
