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.

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.

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.
