    Upgraded Swordgaurd 4 conc barb

    Im gonna make a concentrate barb (ty halciet) and i was wondering how an upgraded swordgaurd would fare. *note* this is not 4 pvp, just a fun pvm barb. Thanks in advance. Oh yeah, btw, if its not any good 4 conc babr, list another good option. (nothing expenive, im POOR)

    Decent weapon, but you'll need a lot of IAS from gear.

    It's an Executioner sword that will upgrade to a Collusus blade. I believe there are 3 shields that start with the word storm though. There's one that's called Stormguild, maybe that's what your thinking of.

    I used an upgraded one in beta and yes it's better with more IAS and if it's close to perfect ed, then it's not bad upgraded. The extra defense is nice.

    It's pretty tight, if you have an upgraded ethereal one, but even then, that's still only about as powerful as a BotD berserker, and you're losing out on the max block.

    IIRC, staves fall under mace mastery; it was supposed to have been fixed, but never was, so I think you can still get the damage bonus from it.
