    Titan barb WW weap question

    Hey my titan is sitting at a comfortable 63 right now. and i was orginally gunna use a BOTD war pike(eth ofcourse) but it woudlnt hit the second break point.. by 20 ias and since ww isn't effect by IAS outside the weapon(please correct me if i am incorrect) my delema is should i use a ghost spear with less dmg but faster or the war pike with more dmg and less speed.

    right now he is usingthis set up.
    arreats(40/15 max in it) 6%
    duped ammy(dual leech)
    lion heart boneweave
    duped dual leech ring/raven
    IK boots gaunts and belt ATM

    and for wep he is using a 316% cruel lance

    he is having no problem leeching in NM havn't ventured much into Hell yet but i'm considering ditching the IK boots and belt for war travs and trangs belt and ditching the raven for another duped ring

    bring my total leehc to 25% with out weap.. and mabye adding a pair of draculs for the leech/str and life tap..

    so bottem line.. war pike or ghost pike... Speed or dmg? hmmm
    help?

    alas, you will probably wind up getting banned for a while, as duped items are not to be talked about, and admitting using/having them generally results in a ban.

    in the future, don't put "duped" in your post, just say "dual leech xxx."

    Make a BOTD Great Poleaxe...same avg damage as Ghost Spear, range 5, same speed, and much lower dex requirement. Available with 6 sockets.

    I think Ghost Spear is the best weapon for a Titan Barb.

    I have an eth one sitting aside and I plan on making a Titan Barb and I will be surely making BOTD out of that and putting it on my Baba.

    I have a titan barb currently, he is lvl 73 using eth botd ghost spear, have maxed ww, weapon mastery, working on bo, and shout.... i have added enough dex in order to use the ghost spear, however there is one main concern I have is how much life I should put, currently after bo, he got 1.5k... seems pretty low, I still got 180 pts saved...I want to pump him up to 2.k life, however that is kind of a tradeoff as I will have to scarifice some pts on str... I will try to put some vit sc on him to get him to 2k life first.. then decide if i really need to put some pts on vit... but overall, he is quite fun to play with as he pretty much kills everything in one ww.... ^_^

    FYI, he has 3k-10k ww dmg after boost from merc... I hope i can get him to 15k ww dmg at least...

    i was only referring to dii.net's forum rules.

    you can hit 2k life with some vit sc's.

    a titan has all str. if you put pts in vit, then it's not a titan anymore, but it's probably easier to use.

    i don't think any weps are truly friendly for a ww titan. what i did in .09 was have 1 wep for playing (cwpoq) and one for just seeing how much damage i could do (eth cruel wp of evis, too bad i lost the auction on it. :()

    so, i would go with a eth botd thunder maul and use something else to play.

    ethereal hone sundan, upgraded does 1xx-7xx damage, hits last ww breakpoint, and has 45% crushing blow...mix this with gore riders and g-ho's face(set helmet)you get 95% crushing blow, 30% deadly +str etc etc

    another nice combo is aldurs armor and boots:
    50% lit res
    50% fire res
    40% frw
    50 life
    10% damage goes to mana
    ~900 def(which is poor)
    30 dex
    20 str
    15 vit
    faster stamina regen(whatever)
    and you'll have the open socket from the armor

    oh yeah:
    150% enhanced attack rating as set bonus...very nice

    anyhow, i think all of those combos are viable for a "Titan" build, and they are not that expensive either

    phelix
