both are great skill for pvm and both can solo pretty well if you got decent equipment, but imo i think frenzy is more fun tho......... because you get to see yourself speeding up as you kill thingsWindu102 said:
I haven`t played a pvm frenzy-er tuned for best performance, however this ladder i`ve made a pvm ww-er purely designed to make the most of it in pvm. It`s a long time since i haven`t made such a char (no mf/no pvp but purely pvm) and i`m really enjoing how he rips through things. He is a killing machine comparable with ANY other char in killrate over time. His dmg with might merc and venom on from grief is 9k/5k (grief/beast). This, along with the trio (DS, CB, OW) that makes the "salt and pepper" of the melee class make him comparable with any other char. He has: 68/52% DS, 25/45% CB, 10/35% OW and as soon as i`ll get my hands on an anni i`ll replace the Arreat for Guillaume`s Face.Ash Housewares said:frenzy has better survivability IMHO, it's more fun, and you can mix auras and do alot of damage fast while casting amp dmg/life tap/static field etc.
You are correct. Static field + crushing blow in particular is a punishing combination.Taz said:my guess is the gap may be closed by ctc things that work with frenzy.

Frezy barb is fun! But when using normal elite items (superior even worse) when making RW such as Beast, Grief and Doom (Berzerker axes) i cursed that build cause of the weapon repair costs! After 1,5 - 2 baalruns I have to repair my wepons which costs me around 1 milion gold. Sure u can run around with orts in your stash to repair the weapons...or gather items sell them for gold and repair your items = TIME CONSUMING...But as long as the weapons have durability is sure fun!
I seems like i have to try uther builds with weapons that dont loose durability. I see here there are some choices:
1 - Dual EBOTD CB
2 - Dual EBOTD BA
3 - Dual GRIEF PB (high dex reqs)
I have no idea if other runewords such as Death and Oath might be other choices as well. But if u want High End items and no repair costs the abocve 3 choices are not so bad imo...
Yeah but you got to have nice on those PB as well!Ash Housewares said:any kind of phase blade works well
no durability = happy ash
(maybe that's why I like Magic Arrow :lol: )
crescent moon phase is pretty handy

*Goes back to spam OTF into oblivion.*
I have to agree. I was talking to a co-worker about D2, he about his WW Barb and me about my Frenzy Barb. He was really bragging about his char until I told him my Frenzy (with Arreats, Skulders, GOOD blood gloves, skillers and BC) was 29 he just kind of lost steam. lolDiehard said:Of course, the *real* reason I vote for Frenzy is simply to satisfy my inner speed junkie. Ripping around the map at hyperspeed, cutting down enemies with flurries of ultrafast strikes... damn, that's entertainment!
I have a L91 barb with an EBOTD 415/15 thundermaul and its not badWindu102 said:
