    PVM WW weps?

    Have been searching for quite a while and found many different threads suggesting what is the best with varying results. Just wondering what combinations for 1 handers would be considered the best for a WW barb interested in PvMing.

    Grief/Grief or Grief/Beast will be your top two.

    i disagree mostly cause you will constantly need to repair weapons. i will use 2 ebotd zerkers. nice damage and insane leech.

    PvM SC, you don't need a shield. Makes Grief in PB and you don't need to repair either.

    Best is loosely found. Both BotD and Grief are strong enough to kill pretty much anything in pvm. Grief does better, but lacks the auto-leech and indestructibility (solved by Grief PB).

    Im currently toting a BotD in a colossus blade and swinging 2h (no dual wield). In all honesty, the mobs aren't going down much faster then when I used it in combo with a grief. either choice will simply kill things insanely fast. I like BotD for the life/mana leech and extra stats. It frees up allot more options in my other gear (the -reqs helps out alot as well when socketing it in a high end weapon)

    speaking of pure numbers, Grief/Grief both in PB's put out the most damage, but you wont' honestly feel a huge difference in solo work between that and Botd Or beast. they all are sick killers. and shield is not really needed at all. Most stuff dies too fast with me Cb BotD for a shield to matter. the times i wished i had a shield, Howl and Grim totem are almost better, and faster to use then swapping for a shield.

    that given, I still keep a shield around for OS moments, but it's not necessary to build around it.
