    They're any weapon that give +3 warcry. Most barbs keep 2 on switch to get +6. Essentially, they do the same as 2 hoto's on switch.

    Wouldn't 2x +3 CtA's give +8 total? Although no FCR...

    Glaives, I was wondering myself when last night a friendly Barb named Prince Loki on USWest gave me a couple. I was using 2BO throwing knives which didn't look cool.

    Nope, only +5. Barbs can only benefit from a total of +3BO between both CtAs.

    I prefer 2 daggers with +3 wc. Less inventory space.

    They are effective If you don't have 3 BO Cta and a hoto. Cheap and give +3 to BO.

    Magical Krises with +3 Warcrys and lifetap charges are good as well (with 2 sockets).

    The +warcries from CTA are considered an oskill, so Barbs are capped at +3 for them.

    CTA+ HOTO gives you the highest level BO but 2 Warcry sticks are better because they add more to shout.

    Re: What are the BO sticks?

    Here Is an article striaght from the Arreat Summit, expalining why you can't.

    Skill Points that work for Any Class ("oskill" Skill Points)
    The Trang-Oul's Avatar Set gives +18 to Fireball and +13 to Fire Wall. The boost to fireball (as well as Frostwind's arctic blast bonus and a whole lot of other items) are examples of what's internally known as an "oskill". These are skill bonuses that work for any class. If a Necromancer is wearing a Trang-Oul set, he'll get +18 fireball and any +X To All Skills equipment can further increase this. The same applies to all other non-sorceress class wearing a part of that set.

    However, oskills work differently for classes that "own" that skill. In this case, it's a Sorceress getting a bonus to Fireball. In the other case, it was a Druid getting a bonus to Arctic Blast. If a character gets an oskill bonus to a skill that class "owns," the bonus is restricted to a maximum of +3. If a Barbarian is dual-wielding Call to Arms runeword weapons, the +3 cap is applied to the total from both weapons. This is all intentional, in order to balance these items.

    I prefer 2x dooms. Yes you lose 2 to warcries but you gain holy freeze which makes killing smiters and bowzons easier and 1hp ow people.

    That would be purely pvp of course. Pvm wise, it's far more efficient to use 2 +3 warcry sticks which can be shopped from Hell Malah.

    dual hoto is inferior to dual +3 warcries swords/axes when it comes the pure vita BvC to use them... since Fal runes are needed in the BO weapons for wielding the CoA... :shocked:
