    Would this Circlet be good on a Barb?

    Greetings.

    This is my first thread in the barb forum. I know next to nothing about barbs, but I'll start an IK barb soon enough to get the feel for them. In the mean time, I found this circlet, and I was wondering if some of you will be kind enough to share your thoughts on it.

    Hailstone Brow
    Circlet
    Defense: 22
    Durability: 81 of 105
    Required Level: 63
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 86
    Fingerprint: 0x567a8e7a
    +23 to Strength
    +18 to Energy
    +5 to Minimum Damage
    Fire Resist +17%
    Lightning Resist +44%
    Cold Resist +17%
    Poison Resist +17%
    +1 to Barbarian Skill Levels

    Here are my thoughts:
    1. Good resists, especially LR, but with NR, does a barb really need much more resists?

    2. Great boost to strength, all good here.

    3. Only +1 to barb skills. But from my understanding, barbs are not too dependant on +skills? If so, then the +1 isn't such a bad thing?

    Please note that I'm not asking for a PC. I would just like to know if it is any good at all, and if it is, what build would make best use of it.

    Thank you.

    EDIT: Silly me, I completely forgot about Arreat's Face! I have a few of those. Ok, that makes this circlet Charsi food then.

    Arreats beats it by alot

    If it had FCR then maybe could have been more useful , of course it's still useful but i would much rather use Arreats.

    Thanks Aman! I remembered Arreat's Face just when you were replying, I think. All those Meph runs are shutting my brain down...:rolleyes:

    Barbs use all three skill trees for almost all builds, so + all skills are very important to them. Not the other way round!!

    The addition of '!!' instead of '.' adds an entirely different emphasis to the interpretation of your sentence. :rolleyes:

    PM me if clarification is required on the above statement.('!!') :rolleyes:

    +skills aren't that important. I would rather have ED, Dual Leech, and +str or +dex over skills.
