Remaking the Tele-Zerker

Hey everyone, Back from the end of last ladder season and trying to get back into the swing of things. Want to throw around my build/gear and get some feedback to see how things are in my head to make sure i've got everything straight still =)

Gear:
Helmet: Arreat's (Unsure on the socket, used to cham it and ditch the raven)
Ammy: Highlords
Armor: Mage Plate Enigma
Belt: Arachnid Mesh
Ring1: 20dex High AR Raven
Ring2: 10% FCR rare ring with stats/life/ar
Gloves: LoH
Boots: War Travs
Shield: SS (Unsure on socket, Probably an Um, resist are usually fine with an anni/torch though with Nat resist. Other options are an Eld or a Shael.)
Weapon: Grief Phase Blade

Weapon Switch : Hoto
Shield Switch : 35% FCR Spirit

The gear setup offers a good amount of +skills, DR, MF, faster r/w some extra damage and good resists between the LoH/Highlords/SS
This also allows me to hit the 105% FCR breakpoint on weapon switch for teleporting around, which is my favorite thing to do. Since this character is going to be a boss runner / Key runner and a rusher, the quick teleport is near priceless
And the debate between eld/Shael in the shield is Eld would save me some dex, but the shael would get me over the 42% breakpoint for 4 frame block

Stats:
Str: Shouldn't need anything here since mageplate is only 25str off of base STR for a barb, and enigma + anni + torch should set me past the needed STR for the SS.
Dex: Enough for Max block (I like getting max block, but the shield socket affects how much dex, +7% from eld or 20% faster block rate)
Vit: Everything Else
Energy: Nothing here


Skill Setup:
Warcrys - 61 points
Howl - 20
Shout - 20
BO - 20
Battle Command - 1

Masteries: 22
Sword Mastery -20
Iron skin - 1
Natural Resist - 1

Combat : 23
Bash - 1
Stun - 1
Concentrate - 1
Berserk - 20

Has a total of 106 skill points till "finished" I usually decide to max synergies and do sword mastery last since it gets alot from the +skills i have and the benefit of the skill points from the high 20's is pretty low compared to the lower levels, Thoughts on this?

Hope to get some feedback, hope i didn't leave anything too important out :yes:

Re: Remaking the Tele-Zerker

looks good. it's pretty much what i used on one of my guys. i went with shael in the SS as i had good res and to me the eld wasnt saving enough to override the faster block.

i always get War Cry too, it's really handy.

i wouldnt get rid of the raven for a cham in your hat, raven is just too good.

why not a second hoto?

Hey there CDM =) We used to play together last season and we compared barbs since we were pretty close, hehe

War cry is kinda handy but I find I never really ended up using it, I always use howl and make things go away and run them down if I wanted to kill them. It also pushes back maxxing everything until the higher 90's, but I can always go for it after I get everything else figured out instead of WW - never use it either

Yeah Raven is really good, I think the only reason I did that last season was I had a +12str/+15 dex AR resists rare ring and I needed the CBF, any ideas on the arreats socket?

unless I can find some nice charms with FHR I might shael it too to hit the 48% BP How expensive / hard to find are warcry 12% FHR charms this time around?

Thought about a second HOTO, pretty close to the same and +1 extra skills, I just have always used a shield. And I guess its a little cheaper, but 2x HOTO would theoretically work out well too. Not like im pushing max block with a spirit monarch anyways

Thanks for the info =) if your still playing I'd like to try and chat with you sometime, still haven't seen many familiar faces yet.
