Again only my opinion, but I think that rends don't even belong on ANY class...the str req is crazy, and they don't add that much damage. All my zealots...all 6 of them...use dracs as gloves. Just my two cents.

Appologize if that sounded like a flame, shouldn't post when im tired lol

In bvb or duels that take a long time to reach a conclusion AND if u don`t already have a high amount of ow dracs are better. In all other situations i prefer Steelrends.

OW is valuable in BvC since you'll want it to trigger and chip away their life as they are be constantly teleing around.

In BvB, you'll want OW to chip their life away as their defense are so high.

not really. They seem to have a hard time hitting me, and I hit fairly hard (note that I am an .09 titan with 500+ str), and also have 28k defense. I reallize the barb could be better set up, but it does fine for me now.

I was wondering if Dracuuls are better for a ww barb! I'm using them on my B52:bomber barbarian (BOTD GP :p ). Now I dont see that Life tap triggers with WW but i sure does when using berzerk! I cant see that OW works so good cause i'm killing too fast and the monsters dont have time to bleed :D

So for PvM arent Steelrend better than Dracs? I guess for PvP Dracs are the obvious choice...

Steelrend might be better for a 2-handed barb in pvm, but I like the leech from draculs. For dualwielders I'd take dracs any day in pvm, lifetap is nice in some tight situations, just hit a bit with frenzy/whatever until it triggers and whirl away.

Agree with you that dracuuls are the best gloves for a frenzy barb! The same applies for a fanapala using a fast weapon (stormlash, BOTD BA)!

For a 2-handed ww barb in PvM using BOTD + carrionwind + Arreat (in my case) is more than enough to leech back some life! :p

Steels are better for B52 Bombarian in pvm :p .But in any forms of pvp draculs reign supreme.25% ow is 25% chance of dealing 533 post penalty dmg over 8 seconds.I did a comparison once for reference,cant dig out the link.

PS:E3 is under way..:evil:
