    most exotic or outrageous builds...

    I've been playing D2 for almost 2 years now and I've always been a fan of whacky or challenging builds. A few I can recall are my bladesin, melee enchantress, frost ranger, thorns convertadin (ah 1.09 memories) and the list goes on..

    I was wondering, what are some interesting ones for a barb? I've only made a conc/ww barb once and never again. So I was thinking of a different approach when making my next one; a barb that differs from mainstream builds. Can anyone please suggest some?

    I've been thinking about making a 'sprinter', a barb that can run like the wind. I'm talking max increased speed, maxed increased stamina, some item that gives vigor aura, and all the irs gear/charms. wont be any good for pvp (and most probably pvm), but will be alot of fun!

    Inspired by Uzziah and coincidentally very similar to something made by MongoJerry, I'm in the process of making a Fireball/Warcry build (Fireball Bard). I don't think there's too many barb builds more exotic than that...

    Endgame equipment:
    Moonfall w/ perfect Fire facet
    Heart of the Oak flail
    Harlequin Crest
    Ormus +FB >13% fire damage
    Trang Oul's Claws
    Trang Oul'd Girth
    Silkweave
    Mara's Kaleidoscope
    Ring of Firebolt
    SoJ
    2x Ali Baba on switch (with as many Ists as I can get)
    Sounding charms
    Serpent charms

    Skills:
    20 Howl (max last)
    20 Taunt
    20 20 Battle Cry
    20 War Cry
    20 Battle Orders
    1 Battle Command
    1 Find Item
    1 Natural Resist

    Very high level plan, I know.

    Stats:
    As you can see, little strength and no dex required. All goes to vit and *gasp* energy. Yes, putting points into energy is actually recommended.

    here is the guide to the magi_barbs Liliel is refering to as his insperation.

    PS My firewall barb is in act 2 Hell now and can handle himself fairly well, he is starting to move really slow and the bosses are being a pain but thats how all challenging builds go. I went through normal, nightmare and into act 1 Hell before my first death, so the build is actually quite safe.

    The guide is an interesting read thats for sure but the main equipment is so high in required level that you almost complete the game before your build comes to play (especially the summoner build, I am still 4 clvls out from wolfhowl :(.

    Wow those are some weird builds; I would probably make the sprinter barb for showing off and stuff. Infact I think I saw a guide before about it except I think it was named bulletbarb...

    Anyway, thanks for those suggestions, I'll try anything you might throw at me that is if it's intriguing enough for me

    Thorns convertadins solo'ed river of flame as fast as any build back at release. People still played them in 1.09?

    I vaguely recall seeing 2 or 3 thorn convertadins lurk around before I quit d2 which was near the end of .09 patch. I never saw another one besides myself play online actually until I joined a game that had 2 of them in the same cow game.

    Try this build I was thinking of:

    Get 100% open wounds (either by stacking items with it, or just plain using the Malice rw) and max howl and put at least 1 point into ww...Also stack on poison Dmg and maybe bramble?

    ww -> poisons and open wounds -> howl -> Things run off to die.

    Or, maybe a Basher...
    Barb with a BIG heavy blunt weapon, preferibly an eth Botd tmaul, maxed Berzerker and Bash, just smash everything in your path....
