    20 in "your" mastery
    20 Battle Orders
    20 Shout
    20 Whirlwind

    Enough str to use your stuff
    Enough dex to use weapon or enough dex for blocking 75%
    vitality is your best friend. lots go here
    Energy don't even think about it!

    Have 2 +3 warcry weapons in each hand and cast battle command, shout, and battle orders for a nice boost to hp and defense.'

    Warcry grand charms are always nice. vita small charms are also a bonus too.

    Once your top 4 skills are maxed, you can put skill points in increased speed, natural resist, iron skin or maybe "find item."


    Equipment:

    Swords-Botd etheral weapons such as colossus blade, beserker axe, great poleaxe, ghost spear. These are simply the best.

    Shield: Stormshield if you can use.

    Armor: Shaftstop, "Stone" armor, "gloom" armor, "enigma" armor

    Rings: Ravenfrost and some other ring

    Ammy: Highlord's ammy, seraph's hymn are good choices. Maybe even metalgrid if you need resists and att rating.

    Gloves: Steelrend or IK gloves

    Boots: Gore riders or war travs

    Helm: Arreat's face. Simply good.

    Charms: Vita small charms, a high end annhil charm, WC grand charms or Combat grand charms.

    using ww, you will probably want some ar/life grand charms. ww AR sucks, even with maxed mastery.

    here is the rest of my equipment that i can use btw

    weapon: doom/flamebellow
    armor: guardian angel
    shield: gerkes
    belt: tg
    boots: gore rider
    ring one: ll ring with a little res
    ring 2: ll ring with a little res
    amulet: eldritch
    helm: havent found a decent one yet but have an ik helm which ill use
    gloves: magnus skin might be a choice or ill go with my good old loh
    I am using shield for sure cuz in hc without a shield it is very difficult.

    so would this setup be better with conc or ww? i am hoping to achieve high lvls with this char and will probably find new stuff as i go along as i m also planning to do some pit runs. this is hc btw dont forget :) thx to everyone who might answer

    WW is NOT viable for hell. My char is lvl 79 Max master and WW with 250 ar raven plus a whole butt load of ar charms. This baba can't get past Act 2 due to his pitiful 4500 ar. You need like 8k ar to finish hell, and to get that you'll need a dru with HOW and a pally with FAN. Needless to say I'm putting this guy on the shelf and thinking of going for zerk no dex build.

    A Ethereal Hone Sundan does ok

    In my experience WW -barbs are quite viable. I used an Upgraded ethereal Hone sundan and did fine. The only places that gave me trouble was the worldstone keep with the gloams and the Oblivion Knight casting iron maiden.
    I noticed that my barb picked up speed after lvl 80, another thing is to get a might merc with a good weapon and high defense armor. My might merc only died to Iron Maiden or when I died.

    That being said yes WW-barbs have it alot tougher in 1.10 but i think that apllies to all meele styles.

    A bit of topic but has anyone tried a maxed Howl in places like Worldstone keep and the pit? My ideas is it may be a good way to separate the champions from the minions while giving the safety to equip alot more MF.
    IF a barb can combine safety with alot of MF it should be a very good killer in 1 player games since "Find Item" virtually lets you kill every monsters twice.
