Wolfbarb PvM : Full resists? How much ar is good?

Hi,

1)I'm in the making of one of those PvM barb, and as I got all my gear and just saw that I will be around 54 all resists, I was wondering if that is really worst than having +75 max all resists.

2) I really don't know how much attack rating I will have at the end, but what amount I should aim for? ( I usually go for around 20k with my melee char, but first time with a wolfbarb).

3) With that setup, does my ias and fhr are ok?

My gear : (any tip will be usefull :p)

- Umed Wolfhowl +3wc, 3/5/4.
- Highlord
- Ebotd T-maul
- Eth Barlog skin prudence (2942 def, 31 all resists)
- Rare melee gloves : 20%ias, +15 strengh / +14 dext, 29%cold resists
- Verdungo 31/15
- 2x20dext Ravens (and around 170ar each)
- Treks 13/15

*Will have Natural resists at a level to reach around +50all resists*

a) Should I swap for 2xangelic rings+amy for more life/ar?
b) Should I swap for Gores for more dmg but less vita (and strengh bonus, having in mind that my T-maul needs 193 strenght).

Thx

how much you have in natural resistance?

throw away ebotd t-maul and get your self one of this weapons: grief pb 31+ ias, gris caddy 4 shael, azurewrath shael, tomb reaver shaeled. t-maul is to slow (just 10 fpa)

i recomend using 1-hand with stormshield

gore riders >> treks
get yourself fhr on helm or charms (42 is breakpoint)
also forti instead of prudence will give big damage booster

THx for tips, but how can be an ebotd t-maul slow when it's written "very fast attack speed : 60%ias from the rw".

I planned to max Bo / shout / wep mastery / iron skin and the others skill in natural resist, so that will be around +50/60 all resists.

i would stick with the prudence over fort, since its eth its the perfect choice for the word, and fort aint that BA IMO, maybe a duress which would help to hit a higher fhr bp and it has decent rez as well, plus CB and OW. however i do recomend one hander and a SS, As for the weapon, yer PvP i assume, i would go with the Caddy or the griefpb.

Shoot for maxblock if yer using a shield tho

GORES...no substitute

PvM is written in the thread tittle.. so i guess i'm pvm. I still think a botd is better for pvm (maybe not a tmaul, but still..)
Thx for tips.

fortitude>>> prudence. any day, any melee char.
as i sad tm speed is 10 fpa, grief pb is 7, azurewrath 6, griss caddy 4

my bad i even read it over before i posted...
if you have a prudence and not a forti your not gonna notice tomuch difference if you have a high enugh dmg and LL your life will barely move ne way so getting hit wont matter much ne way... i have a key runner, he dont use dracs and i can run all mini ubers with out regularly poting(i hate poison) and i dont have massive rez. botdtm will keep you having hi leach returns and you should only realy be aiming for 10k ar... i have 9.5 with my runner and i dont have any problems keeping him alive

Well, i just tryed it with all my gear on (lv 80). My resist will be full by lv 87-** or so, my def will be over 31k when Iron skin max (29k atm), 4.2k life atm, 10k ar.

So it's not bad at all (the reason i dont use grief is because i need the leech on botd).

you need leech for what? mana? feral gives you more life leech then you ever need.

look at my wolfbarb:

for duel vs some oponents i switch for hsarus or angelic combo (or both) for extra ar (hiting about 24 k that way). he never died in pvm. in pvp he is very good anti-caster char (except hammerdin, but can beat them also)

Craft blood gloves till you get some with dual leach. The CB will help some in pvm as well. A ring with mana leach will do it too but i find blood gloves best.

I see you have awesome rare gloves now a mana AR ring would give all the leach you need.

Sorry to spam. Why is there no edit button?
