What weapon to master?

Hello everyone. I'm starting a new WW barb and was wondering what weapon class has the most options. I'm looking at weapons for all lvls, at medium to high price range. Thanks for any input.

zerkers are the only way to go! high dmg. a range of 3. weapon speed of 0. what could be better?!!??!?!?:thumbsup:

Also consider the fact that axes have very low dex req.
Of course this argument is useless if you're using a shield.
An argument for swords would be that a not-so-rich barb has an easier time finding a weapon, since stuff like grandfather and doombringer is much cheaper than runewords or death cleaver.

Also, swords just look that much cooler.

Statistically speaking, Axes are the way to go. For the look as well as the accessibility though (dual Doombringers cost me like 10 PGems), swords are my choice.

Swords.
Although Zerker is a better choice in many areas. When I need a fast, indestructable weapon, pb is the choice.
While I certainly don't want to master 2 weapon types, and there're swords that're almost equally as good as axes, I'll stick on swords.

Statistically speaking zerkers outperform their sword counterparts, but it looks god awful on a barb ! He looks like he is holding a toy not a weapon.

Spears all the way. Theres nothing more awesome than a barb holding a giant needle. Not to mention the range and the superior damage.

As stated above axes generally outperform other weapons and there are lots of runewords available.
Some people prefer other weapons, mainly because of looks...

Poles ftw (pvm of course)! There's nothing cooler than a barbarian whirling around with huge scythe or any other pole....
