    Update

    Ryan has instructed me to tell you all that he's doing okay and should get out of the hospital soon. I never told you guys what happened did I?

    Ok, here goes. Ryan and I were skateboarding at a school near our houses. I just landed a new trick down the big handrail, 12 stairs I think, and then Ryan decided it was his turn to step it up. So he went for a backside nosegrind (jumping onto the rail with the rail on his backside onto balancing on the rail) and fell forward, onto his head, at the bottom of the stairs. When he landed, his neck broke instantly with a horrible crunch. He has been hospitalized since then, but he should be getting out soon. Most likely he and I will both post on this name, so he should get back soon.

    Meanwhile, I have worked on my barbarian, a s/s barb in an 09 form with GF as his best weapon. I plan on using this:
    Gaze (Um)
    Mara's
    GF, Open socket right now, but I'm trying to get an Ohm for it
    Leviathan (Open socket, looking for an Um)
    Stormshield (Not socketed yet, but I'm not sure what I'd put in it anyway)
    Dracul's
    Bul Katho's
    Manald
    String of Ears
    Gore Rider

    Maxing:
    Sword Mastery
    Battle Orders
    Shout
    Whirlwind

    I plan on using my sword mostly two handed, but I'll keep you all updated on my barb and on Ryan.

    -Mark

    Yikes. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    Yet another reason why I stick to safe sports like rock climbing.

    Ouch, that gotta hurt. Best wishes.

    I could never see myself make a s/s barb though, they (and their skills) are meant to have two biga** sword and hack through emeny, guess I'm kinda old school on this kind of stuff.

    quick advice on the GF socket. I wouldn't go Ohm, as you will need IAS to get that thing moving. I don't remember where the IAS tables are, but more damage on that thing isn't needed if you can bump your frenzy up a frame. Damage is king, but speed kills.

    Hope Ryan recovers soon. Outside is a dangerous place, so I try to avoid it...
