    In any event a good WW Barbarian will always defeat a good WW Assassin. Barbarians can gain more damage, life, defense, and attack rating. With a decent range weapon such as a Collosus Blade you would have one hard time killing a WW barb.

    i dueled a WWsin with my barb. she had a weapon with amp charge, and bramble. OUCH!!! I was down to 30 hps when she died.
    I would have died if I didn't have so much life.

    a good WW barb would hit you without ever being openned up to attack since all claws are range 1 a good barb dueler could always whirl to keep on the outskirts of his range and out of the assassin's, in theory, in practice the assassin would land attacks but would still be at a disadvantage against a good whirl barb

    I noticed when dueling with my friends ww assn, and also stated in Wyv's guide, that one of the major problems with barbs is their insane defense acheived through high def armor + shout + Iron Skin.Their damage has never been outstanding, nor has their attack rating.Their insane life can be discouraging at times as well...

    How about Cloak of Shadows? At level 20 it will last almost 30 seconds, give you 62% enhanced defense, and lower enemy defense by a whopping 72%!!
    Fighting a barb with a base 4k defense will become an easy 1k defense. I am not quite sure how much stronger the skill will get after level 20, but with a few shadow skill grand charms and claws with +skills on wep switch, it would not be impossible to get a level 30 COS. IMHO, Cos would be key in defeating high def. paladins and barbs. Also, it makes the blades from blade fury invisible...so cool...:)

    Ufortunatly Cloak of Shadows does not work the way you thought it would work, i belive that Cloak rounds off the enemys top defense then divides (Not sure.) but it definatly will not remove 72% of all your enemys defense.

    Cloak of shadows still is almost worth it for the defense bonus.

    I was curious about CoS' pvp use, I've been considering it, perhaps I could throw my leftover points there

    You could probably leave CoS at just 1 point, its really there to kinda throw off your oppenent and it will get you about 1 extra hit(which sometimes means the difference).


    all a good barb would have to do is Whirl right next to your whirl and youll lose....especially if he has the gear youre talkin about.

    CoS doesn't work like that. If a barb has 4k base defense and like 900% defense his total defense is 40k. Even a -100% defense CoS would lower this only to 36k defense. You still have a hard time hitting the barb with 36k in comparison to 40k.

    i have a ww sin i am dueling with, and i too have trouble vs ww barbs. i havent tested this yet but one of my friend is using angelic rings and ammy and he has 12k ar at lvl 85 i think. if you could get some mad ar it could be probable to kell them with blade fury and not wwing once.

    lots of AR, good open wounds, deadly strike, crushing blow, venom and fast on your feet. one may have what it takes to kill a ww barb with the uper end of the def :scratch: worth a try, hmmm?

    The thing is a good barb isn't much slower then a sin to begin with (40% run from inc speed = normal for tweaker barbs). Combine that with the fact barbs can have massive defense , decent AR , good dmg high life and a range 3 weapon. All these things together make sure a decent barb will never ever lose to a WW sin.

    not very true. some of the best ww barbs sometimes lose or come close to losing to wwsins when they are not prepared. but if they put on death gloves or drink a few antidotes they'll probably win. also a bvb build high life and def ww barb with good poison res and pdlr would be nearly impossible to beat for ww sins.
