    Misc images:

    Talic is going down!
    Baal is going down!
    Is this a joke? It happened to me when I was uploading images =P

    This is my first barbarian that I've made patriarch that hasn't been using the Immortal King set or had help from other players. I played in MP games in normal and nm but went completely solo through hell. I didn't like the IK barb because the one I had was slow and quite weak and I didn't like the short range of the maul (2). I've been looking for a weapon with the potential to make a ww barb that would effective as the IK set. I finally I got one after I found the runes from my countess runs and made oath out of an old 4os eth balrog blade from my socketed item stash. Got a quite lucky ed roll actually, 324 of 340 max % ed. For the duress armour I took an old hellforge UM and another socketed item from my socketed item stash.

    When playing the barb I played with p8 in normal and nightmare and p1 in hell because I liked the feeling of just kicking every monster's butt, something I've never done before with a meelee build since none of my earlier ones has been this powerful =D

    It was really nice to be able to use the endgame weapon as early as level 53. He was somewhere in act2 nightmare when he hit level 53 and he could take down enemies there with one whirlwind hit on p8. Then five levels later I could use the duress and get rid of the "leathery" look of duriel's shell and replace it with shiny metal from the balrog skin

    There were no problems in hell, I killed most enemies in 1-2 hits or at least in one whirl. Berserk took care of any PI's, some mana burn / PI ghosts could be annoying but there was nothing I couldn't handle. The hardest thing was actually the levels about 30-48 because I didn't have a good weapon to use before swordguard that becomes avaliable at level 48.

    Have I missed to mentioned something or is it anything anything that you find indistinct? Feel free to ask of course! But remember, it's the first time I post a mat/pat thread so be nice =)

    Why did you decide to make Oath in a two-handed sword? It seems to me that the item is better suited for Zealot's. Either way, that's a really nice weapon.

    Anyways, congrats on the pat.:clap:
