    This barb looking fine on equipment?

    Enigma wyrmhide
    SS with P diamond
    headstriker (need ETH CB)
    gore riders
    IK gloves
    Highlord's wrath
    2 ravenfrosts
    verdungo belt
    Arreat face socketed with UM

    By lvl 90, I should have 5k life, 75% blocking.

    Typical WW S/S barb

    Its loking fine, but I don't see any mana leech and very little life leech. And you don't need two ravens, unless you REALLY need the AR/dex

    Instead of the highlords and one ravenfrost you could use angelic ammy and an angelic ring for the huge ar boost.

    Need the ravenfrosts for the dex for blocking.

    besides that fact that WW is a mana eater and you have no mana leech and little life leech it's fine

    Remember using the angelics also gives 10 to dex. So if you replace a ravenfrost you would only lose 10 dex. And as for mana... angelic ammy has 20% damage goes to mana. Its surprising how useful that is.

    True, though since he's doing pvm, ar isn't as much of an issue, and he already has a nice amount of DTM from engima, so he'd probably get a lot more mileage out of a Highlord's and two rings of his choice, whether it be raven, which is really great, or two of something else (being frozen is great for whirling).

    The only thing I'm questioning on his build is his socketing choices. Resists can be easily maxed between nat resist, annihilus, arreat's, the anya quests, and then either rings and/or a few shimmering charms, so ed/str jewels would be better sockets. If you absolutely insisted on socketing your gear for resists, um in the shield and a 15/xxx resist all/other mod jewel in the helm would be chocie.

    Whoa this is pvm? Never read that anywhere... I should really get more sleep. If its is pvm, disregard everthing I said about the angelic jewelry. Theres better options for pvm.

    Ah wait wait, my bad, I'm mixing up my threads; this is what I get for opening up all threads I havn't read at one time and responding to them one after another, after 3 hours of sleep. He might actually be pvp, in which case I totally support your advice on angelic wings and two halos. He needs to clarify so we know what to suggest ;)

    Yea I agree if he had to socket for resist a xx/15 resist jewel in either the shield or the helm would have been enough. My pvp barb has max resists and he's using angelics so he wont have the nice lr from the highlords.

    The barb is PvP type. I'm using one shimmering grand charm.

    Ah, alright then, then definately angelic wing and at least one halo, if not two. Like shade said, the set gives 10 dex, so it's not so bad. You could go ammy, ring, and raven, or prefereably against melee opponents, ammy, ring, ring.
