respec for GF whirl barb? I leveled a singer to 79 the hard way. No MP (as I recall) and no multi-instance help. So, now I have a decent gf singer. 1st question: Will a dual wield (swords) whirler for gf be decently efficient and fun? (I know it's a nebulous question.) Now some background info: I'm thinking of respecing the singer to a whirl barb. After making the singer, I made/acquired a few decent weapons: Code: Oath Cryptic Sword ShaelPulMalLum One Hand Damage: 33 - 550 Durability: 23 of 23 Required Level: 61 Required Strength: 89 Required Dexterity: 99 Fingerprint: 0x1709b73 Item Level: 87 Version: Expansion 30% Chance to cast level 20 Bone Spirit on striking Indestructible +50% Increased Attack Speed 379% Enhanced Damage +75% Damage to Demons +100 to Attack Rating against Demons Prevent Monster Heal +10 to Energy +11 Magic Absorb Level 17 Iron Golem (14/14 Charges) Level 16 Heart of Wolverine (20/20 Charges) Ethereal 4 Sockets (4 used) Socketed: Shael Rune Socketed: Pul Rune Socketed: Mal Rune Socketed: Lum Rune Cloud's Oath Superior Balrog Blade ShaelPulMalLum One Hand Damage: 87 - 446 Two Hand Damage: 327 - 706 Indestructible Required Level: 53 Required Strength: 175 Required Dexterity: 77 Fingerprint: 0x21fca012 Item Level: 99 Version: Expansion 30% Chance to cast level 20 Bone Spirit on striking Indestructible +50% Increased Attack Speed 299% Enhanced Damage +3 to Attack Rating +75% Damage to Demons +100 to Attack Rating against Demons Prevent Monster Heal +10 to Energy +11 Magic Absorb Level 17 Iron Golem (12/14 Charges) Level 16 Heart of Wolverine (17/20 Charges) Ethereal 4 Sockets (4 used) Socketed: Shael Rune Socketed: Pul Rune Socketed: Mal Rune Socketed: Lum Rune Death Colossus Blade HelElVexOrtGul One Hand Damage: 195 - 513 Two Hand Damage: 460 - 909 Durability: 26 of 26 Required Level: 63 Required Strength: 144 Required Dexterity: 80 Fingerprint: 0x77a72a83 Item Level: 87 Version: Expansion 100% Chance to cast level 44 Chain Lightning when you Die 25% Chance to cast level 18 Glacial Spike on attack Indestructible 429% Enhanced Damage 20% Bonus to Attack Rating +50 to Attack Rating Adds 1 - 50 Lightning Damage 7% Mana stolen per hit 50% Chance of Crushing Blow 37% Deadly Strike (Based on Character Level) +1 to Light Radius Level 22 Blood Golem (15/15 Charges) Requirements -20% Ethereal 5 Sockets (5 used) Socketed: Hel Rune Socketed: El Rune Socketed: Vex Rune Socketed: Ort Rune Socketed: Gul Rune I also have an eth Oath scourge (not 1.07) and a Stormlash, but I think the damage output on the swords is much higher. Among the swords, it looks like Oath/Oath hits 2fpa and Oath/Death hits 3fpa, but the Death damage (and 50% CB!) seems like it might make up for it. 2nd question: in your collective experience, which will be better (for gold/rune finding in trav)? Of course, Glacial Spike can shattered corpses. I also have some other nice melee items, like Fort, Duress, Highlord's, String, Dungo's, Gores, Arreat's, and others. The only trouble I'm having is that I can only respec this character once, and he has an awesome GF name: Cortez*, so I'd really rather do it right the first time. Opinions? * Of course, I can always delete him and remake. It's not that hard to level a whirl barb. On a related note, I've thought of respecing my meteorb and executress and swapping their skills. In effect, I gain a level 90 enchantress (and I was thinking of making her an enchantLess heavily invested in energy shield instead of Forb) and a level 80 meteorb (which isn't too hard to level up). The gain is that I don't have to level my executress. 3rd question: is there an SP forum consensus on how cheesy this is? I'm reluctant to do such things only because I often choose fitting names for my characters: Clytemnestra for an axe enchantress, Cortez for a gf barb.
