Ok, I'm building a lld Barbarian that will use a mastery and bash. First off, I cant decide which mastery to use, either axe or sword? Axe I could use Berserker, but Sword i could go with clegclaws. Which should i go with?
Also, what should its skill split be, i have all quests done in normal, so ill have 13 skill points, im thinking 9 Bash, and 4 Mastery. Or should there be a different split?
Heres the gear ill use, its in 2 sets, 1 for sword mastery, 1 for axe mastery.
Shield: Pelta Lunata
Armor: 3 Socketed Breast Plate (3 flawed ruby's)
Helm: 3 Socketed Mask (3 flawed ruby's)
Gloves: Either deaths(for the set bonus) or clegclaws (for the set bonus of additional damage)
What should I look for in the jewelry, AR and resis? Any help will be great.
Maybe it is just me, but neither for PvM or PvP can I see any reason to use Berserker's Hatchet.
The speed is non-special. The damage is forgettable. The full set bonii are puny (you already get the 50 Life by just wearing two parts).
Even a plain Cleglaw's Tooth without any other pieces of the set is far better than Berserker's Hatchet having better speed and a whopping 50% to Deadly Strike.
If you are mostly interested in raw damage you should perhaps give Civerb's Cudgel a look (mace mastery). Civerb's Cudgel does roughly double as much damage as Berserker's Hatchet and you don't really need anything else from the set.
Helm: 3-Socket Mask (+14 to Maximum Damage Jewels)
Armor: 3-Socket Light/Breast Plate (+14 Maximum Damage Jewels)
Amulet: Rare Amulet with good attributes
Weapon: 6-Socket Military Pick (+14 to Maximum Damage Jewels)
Shield: Pelta Lunata (+14 to Maximum Damage Jewel)
Gloves: Death's Hand
Belt: Death's Guard
Rings: Nagelring/+90 AR Rare
4x Grand Charm of Balance
Several +15 to life Large Charms (With second mods such as AR, mana, etc)
1x 1-2 Cold Damage Large Charm ("Legal" slow vs. some)
Several +3 to Strength or Dexterity Large Charms (For damage and AR)
Copied almost directly from my post at LLD101.
+14 Maximum Damage Jewels are Carbuncle Jewels of Wrath; both prefix and suffix. They are very hard to find, so you can stick with +9 to Maximum Damage Jewels. Watch out for level requirements!
That was actually on my clipboard the moment I clicked your link... Haha, what a coincidence...
Ok, I have a question. My barb is in hell, but hes lvl 9 and only in act 3, so no izzy or anya. I have all other quests done, so with my skills should i go 9 Bash, 1 Howl, 1 Shout, rest in axe mastery? thats what im thinking to do.
Finally, i Beat trav and izzy, so ill have all skills! I had to die inbetween the council memebers though, lol. Well, now that all i need is the gear, does anyone have plus 14 or 9 to maximum damage jewels, east ladder softcore? lol...
