PvP wolfbarb

I'm planning to make a pvp wolfbarb out of my pvp ww barb for just melee, WW for everything else.

Right now I have:

20 Shout
20 BO
20 Iron Skin
20 Axe Mastery
20 WW

Stats: [base](modded)
Str: [145](224)
Dex: [162](210)
Vita: [220](324)
Ene: [10](23)

Gear for wolf:
160/80ias Eth Robo Zerker (4 fpa according to TheDragoons Calculator)
Zod Eth Valor
40/9Str Wolfhowl
Raven
dex/str/ar/life Ring
Highlords
Up Goreriders
Draculs
Verdungos
Shael Stormshield

Switch:
Dual Hotos for WC's
Mang Songs for Wolf

Gear for WW:
Eth Botd Zerker
Enigma Bskin
40/9Str Up Arreats
40/9Str Stormshield / 15resists Wizspike
Raven
str/dex/ar/life Ring
Verdungos
Steelrends
Highlords
Up Gores

Switch:
Dual Hotos

Will this work or should I just keep barb for melee and switch out enigma bskin for zod eth valor, and 40/9 for 40/15ias until BP?

Seems like a nice solid build to me. Of course maybe you just posted this here to show how wealthy you are... still trying to decide... ;)

What are the stats on your wolfhowl? mind posting them for me?
And I would use the dual Hoto for your switch (+6 instead of +5)

Also, please show me the calculator for where you calulate your frames... I see it as only coming out to be 8 frame Feral Rage from the one I am using... (that is assuming you have the best gear possible too ;) )

Why duel hoto? Echoing weapons give 3 to warcrys too and there so much cheaper.

In this case he is also using them as shifter/prebuff weapons. Therefore, the +3 skills on each of them will apply to the +skills for his Werewolf. Otherwise, I am sure he would use two echoing weapons.

Can someone verify that 160/80ias Eth Robo Zerker will hit 4 fpa and Shael Stormshield will hit the next FBR for wolfbarb?

Also is FHR based on the wolf or barb?

your wolf side seems VERY incomplete:

1st... you need resists if you are going to be using wolf vs non melee chars.

2nd... you need TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONS of faster run walk ability... i recomend enigma + max run walk instead of iron skin... when you are running defense = 0 so why even try.

for a wolf barb to work you need MAD CRAZY INSANE runwalk... enigma 40% runwalk (in light armor preferably breast plate so you can twink your life) + max run walk + feral rage!

for a wolf barb to work... you need so much run walk that when an enemy caster stops tele to cast.. you are right on his/her ***.... you also need MAD CRAZY run walk to have ANY hope vs a wind druid... tornados cant be aimed all that well and you need to really be breathing down your enemies neck.... as soon as they try to cast ANYTHING.

iron skin i htink is a waste... wolf barbs ARE ALWAYS RUNNING.... since defense is useless in running chars and you wil be running constantly.. breast plate enigma is really the way to go here; the super low str req allows you to have insane twinkage which allows you to crank the crap outa vit... which gets amped by the BO and lycanthropy... you should have TONS of life on your wolf barb

anyways.. i dont have all your answers but i think INSANE runwalk is of the utmost importance.

also .. if you manage to get good resists without shield... you might want to try having a 2 handed weapon on the weapon switch vs casters.. the extra range will really help you out when you want to hit them fast as possible to prevent them from being able to tele or cast.

thnx

I'm planning to make a pvp wolfbarb out of my pvp ww barb for just melee, WW for everything else.

My wolf is MELEE ONLY, so I won't need fr/w or more resists.

well i think you will be disappointed in your results... the WW setup skills and equipe is nothing close to the same gear needed for wolf.

conc barbs i think have the best ability become wolves.... but even then the rules are different... you want a good wolf barb you ahve to fully design the barb around wolfhowl IMO.

thnx
