    PvP BoTD Giant Thresher Barb (opinion answers please)

    Hello, I am in the process of trading for the gear to make my new BotD Giant Thresher Barb, WW will be the main skill here. I am sorry to be redundant, since many posts have been made on this topic however...

    I was wondering kind of armor looked the coolest to put enigma into for a barb... I will be going base req for all my gear so I will not be using the enigma str bonus to use my weapon, gaunts, boots etc. So this means I will have 190 str base. With that much str what, in your opinion, is the most effective and cool looking enigma armor?

    Also, out of curiosity, if I would happen to socket a 3 socket armor with a p skull and then remove the p skull using the horadric cube recipe, will the armor retain the black color? (I'm assuming not, but a verification would be appreciated.)

    Any response will be appreciated, thank you in advance! :buddies:

    copier! j/k

    i dont think it would retain the black color. try it out.

    as for armor, i myself perfer the look of either gothic/embossed/laquered plate or ancient/ornate/sacred armor. thats just me.

    if you do get the botd giant thresher, could you let me know the str and dex reqs and how much you paid for it? i need one for my barb.

    I like Boneweave and Archon. with archon you can see all of his body tatoos, but with boneweave, he has padding on both arms. :D

    I got a good deal..heh..

    I got an ethereal 6 socket giant thresher for skulders + lem + boneshade (pos)... I got a good deal on it I think :evil:

    Currently I am still in the process of trading for the zod, vex... I'll let you know.

    If anyone on USEast SC Ladder has those two runes for trade PM me please, I will do a fair trade and will probably have something you are looking for :flip:

    i personally love the look of shadow plate on a barb. i recently made the "stone" runeword in a superior 610def one. 2.2k def baby!

    did i mention my iron barb hits 33k def with this monster on?

    is stone good PvP armor for barbs? Im making a s/s barb and trying to decide on the armor. My friends say that enigma is the only way to go.. true?

    also it wouldn't be for just bvb, but versus all chars..

    Stone is very good 2000+, no less
    but Eth Valor is even better (same defense but obviously better stats)

    Archon looks god awful on barbs. Ugliest armor besides great hauberk imo.Go for the gladiator look i.e wire fleece/balrog.

    i just tried socketing a quilted armor with a chipped skull, the shoulder pads turned black. but when i removed the skull using hel+town portal scroll the armor returned to its original color. so, unfortunately it doesn't work :(. imagine how much fun it'd be if we can change the colors

    it'd be fun, but is vanity worth the price? I think not, imho.

    Lol. :p
