WackenOpenAir said:edit: oh one final thing to note: if you you have lots of one of those enhancers, its relative value decreases. this is most likely to become significant with deadly strike. if you have 80% already, another 10% is not gonna enhance your damage by 8%, it will be like 5% or so. for stat points this is the same, but you are not likely to get more than 100 or so stats from your equipment, so that wont be significant. same for ed%
ahh oops meant pvp throw barblilstavy said:hey i was wondering.. which of the following would be best for a pvp barb....lacerators or a dif weapons, draculs or steelrends, gore riders or war travellers, and most importantly, chains of honor or leviathan... also wondering which charms i should use, thx!!
Leviathan is out of the question. Look at the strength require. 174 is not makable without strength charms if you're going to be a thrower. I took my thrower to 159 strength at ** (with gear help of course). 174 is just too high a number for a build that gets more damage (and ar) from dex. Chains of honor you can put in any number of low strength elite armors and get better results. Warshrikes (especially the ethereal kind) may be the best choice pvp with its deadly strike % and -50 ias (base -20 and -30 for the item itself). Lacerator also would be good pvp, although a little slower (base -10 and -30 for the item) Not too much good pvm, but just the ticket with the amp damage although I think the warshrikes are better pvp and pvm.lilstavy said:hey i was wondering.. which of the following would be best for a pvp barb....lacerators or a dif weapons, draculs or steelrends, gore riders or war travellers, and most importantly, chains of honor or leviathan... also wondering which charms i should use, thx!!
The problem youre going to run into is the ias factor. Any thrower below -99 total isn't going to kill much, and if you make a machine gunner, your probably going to die before you charge frenzy up. I still think that a better armor is out there for you, maybe of the four socket ed/ias variety or stone for a dueler. Stone gives you huge defense, and fast recovery, both critical for a dueler with leech being nerfed in 1.10. The 300 def against ranged is nice as well since you will be fighting a lot of throw barbs and zons. Save your strength. Get a stone in a wyrmhyde or some other low strength armor, and pump the dex and vitality instead of strength. Remember I only have 135 strength in my pvm build (with gear 159), you need to be under that to save points for a dueler. I would go with mosers myself with almost no strength req and good resists. At 60% block and 30% fast block its hard to argue with it as a blocking weapon for a switch with a thrower. you want more block, eld it (+7%) or shael it for even faster block. BTW it is possible to throw single handed for duels only, although you do lose the double swing synergy. Your choice.lilstavy said:hey thanks sooo much for the info, quick question though, i was planning on socketing levi with 35ed/-15 req jewel so the str might not be a huge problem. as for the shield, though, do you have any in mind??
