Rebirth: The Trials and Tribulations of 'The Ancients'

Welcome to 'The Trials and Tribulations of 'The Ancients''. In this thread, we will see the completion of 3 guardians built around three of the mightiest barbarians that Sanctuary has housed. The descendants of 'The Ancients' will each fight their way through Sanctuary, even pausing to beat aside their own ancestors. They are Madawc, Talic and Korlic. Can they live up to the legends of their ancestors, mythical or otherwise, and truly claim the right to their given name?


Madawc has completed his journey with aplomb, becoming both the first of The Ancients to finish and also my first barbarian Guardian.

I think that your characters need to be a little more careful in general but at the same time one should not overdo things. After all, someone needs to deed to keep up the dramatic horror of this game. However, the answer is staring us in the face for here the obvious choice is presented. Talic must deed. This despicable organism serves no purpose but to deed in a comical manner.

What weapons is he currently double throwing with?
At the moment, throwing spears, but he can equip dual Deathbit next level. I want to keep him on axes where possible to keep to theme, but I'm willing to let it go for normal and nightmare. I only have one set of Gimmershreds though, so I will spend an awful lot of time in town...

'The Barbarian Horde' just makes me think of the movie "Gladiator"...

"My history's a little hazy, Cassius... but shouldn't the barbarians lose the battle of Carthage?"

Fantastic movie (one of my all time favorites) and an always-appreciated D2 theme!

Is Madawc strictly limited to Throwing, or is melee permitted? A few points in DS and Frenzy could significantly reduce repair time.

Nah, he retreats from melee range if you engage him. Plus, I'm trying to experience as much of the skills as I can, so I'm reluctant to use melee anyway :p
