Wow ok so you're saying I suck because I don't block, yet many suggestions here were of two handed weapons also, where were you when they suggested a gpa or ghost spear?
My life is unfortunately too low, I put too much into str, my life was 938
you miss my point completely, a bva/ bvb (assuming with 75% block and decent choice of gears (which you seems to lack) and skills (which you also seems to lack)) WILL NOT lost more than 10% of the time when facing a dual wield/ 2handers barb on a head to head ww battle. Your life is 938? even my level 31 hammerdin have 1231 life... which also proof you know nothing about barbs. I doubt that you could win against ANYONE other than that barb you were dueling :rolleyes:.
for your information:
dual wield > 2handers in pvp and
ebotd gpa/ ghost spear>>> ebotd tm and please quote where i say no block = sucky barb? don't make things up, ok? I am only saying the barb that you duel suck because he die to your barb that has only 938 life plus bvb (but i dont think he is a bvb or even a pvper at all) should win vs a 2hander using barb. and yes your barb suck too...
AND i repeat:
NO I AM NOT SAYING YOU SUCK BECAUSE YOU DON'T BLOCK, my bvc doesnt block either because I dual wield. BUT I AM SAYING YOUR BARB SUCK BECAUSE
1) ALL your gear choices suck or just plain wrong
2) Your barb's life suck beyond my/ anyone's believe
3) only newbies make mistake of putting THAT much str for a pvper.
4) The owner of the barb knows NOTHING about barb AND pvp.
"3) only newbies make mistake of putting THAT much str for a pvper"
Hello titan barbs, they aren't exactly extinct, just different gear mechanics.
I haven't looked at this guys build but to say pumping up str is newb..ugh. Your giving the totally wrong impression to anyone who is a new player. Who doesn't have a vast fortune or other wise. Im not even going to get started with all the shadiness that is Diablo2 as far as actual items go. But you get what you paided for.
That whole post makes my brain hurt, I've been sitting pretty idle for awhile about this thread, but wow.
Let me make this quite clear. It's a click based game. I click you die, Its just that simple, its a game designed specifically for kids,specifically younger kids, doesn't mean adults can't play it, its just how the game was designed, just like World of Warcraft, now if you want skill based game play Everquest, where abilities, healing, splitting, pulling, line of sight all are factors in process of playing.
Im by no means a great barb, I never claimed to be but I've played MMO's long enough to where skill lays and doesnt.
And Diablo2 is not one of them. If you can't see that or understand that then I dont know what to say.
hello titans barbs.... titans barbs doesnt do as well as vita barb in pvp period. Secondly Learn to READ carefully it said 'make mistake' NOT 'putting str on purpose'. :rolleyes:
oh please not those 'd2 pvp doesnt need skill only gear' type of post/person AGAIN.
So what is your point? it is design for younger kids, doesn't make it non-skill related game at all esp. in pvp. You are dealing with a human being in pvp not some low Ai monsters. even if i give you my old not so rich bvc i highly doubt you could clear a pub pvp room.
PVP requires gears + skills
It's ALOT more than 'i click button A and you die' type of game. breakpoints, gear select, gears switch, stats, resist, skill point placement, where you cast your spells, the ability to namelock, tactics, teamwork (in team duels), being offesive/ defensive, reflex, when to recast etc etc etc. ALL are needed for PVP.
By saying that, you are right for one thing,
Yes you are by no means a great barb nor a half decent pvper at all.
P.S learn to read and play better before you comment please ^^
Im not "one of those people" but see I know the truth, understand and accept it. As for Diablo2 you can go ahead and ask Blizzard, theory behind diablo2 from a marketing and target player base standpoint.
I could agrue about this all day but there really isn't much point, now is there not that Im wrong or right, I just dont care, but I do care when people start talking about how much skill it is to click BLessed Hammer macro and teleport to someone and kill them because it does 15k damage. Things like the amazing work that is done and the depth people take to figure it out, I dont discredit.
Not, it really isn't, you can hide behind formulas and breakpoints but what it comes down to is clicking. Breakpoints and formulas for blocking and all that nonsense is to give the game depth because its straight forward and most of that only applies to one small fraction of that game which is completely unbalanced because of itemization. Without all the math, the game would simply just be running from Den of Evil to Baal three times in a row at different diffculties. As for learning to play, heh Im really not gunna even getting started with that. lts not worth my time, and i'll comment when I please.
You dont even know who I am to even judge me as a half ddecient pvp or a good or bad barb, thats why I make the claim myself. I know my own abilities as a player, both in d2 and in my regular MMO games I play, which Icould go into great detail, in the difference of skill levels
Shaftstop is my forum name nothing remotely close my actual account or player names, which I chose to keep anon.
ok here goes ^^
first a hammerdin that tele on top and bh someone 100% of the time isnt skilled.
secondly being able to select and use the gear/ tactics to deal with diff. chars or even SAME char but diff. style of playing isn't skill related in your book.
third just because you use a mouse to click doesn't means it's non-skill related, reflex, tactics counts.
forth if you think d2 is a non skill related game, try duel against a good ghost and a bad ghost. Or better yet play one yourself.
fifth i judge you as not even a half decent pvper base on your post. Becuase only people who don't know about pvp claims it only an 'click you die' type of game.
Well your wrong and dont base people on anything especially text unless you meet them in game, thats ... well never mind. But its because I spent all my time in either Hardcore Ladder or Ladder pvping that I can say this. Different classes my current pvpbarb is a 2hand WW low lvl barb with per Hone Sundan.
Gearwise nothing changes everyone uses the same stuff, same weapons same gear, find me any melee class who doesn't use BOTD/grief/Beast or the 50 other most common items, perhaps I'd look at it differently.
For now its all about gear and items, not much else, theres no line of sight, no real damage prevention, seriously major player vs player imbalances, 15k Hammers, 3k, charged bolts from a amazon (my cow farmer is only 3220 with full MF gear) 21k fireballs, list goes on. throw on one or two absorb items casters become useless.
a person can pvp for many years and still suck.
yes people use grief/beast because they are the VERY strong (if not the strongest). but i am talking about gear switching/ getting to such and such breakpoints without losing some important stats/ turns things into your favour by gear switching. Plus you only said that because people already make the build for you, try coming up with a build like bvc and the gears require for it.
When everyone has almost the same gear... what makes some players stands out and other players that uses the same gears suck? SKILLS makes the difference between good players and bad players..... you just proved my point :rolleyes: . AS i ALWAYS said pvp requires BOTH gears AND skills.... a really elite player with decent gear can beat a bad player with the most expensive gear easily.
your point? almost every type of char have it's own uphill battle. just because an hammerdin have 15k unresistable damaging hammer doesnt means a windy with 6k 50% reduce-able cannot kill. some form of attacks have the advantage over some others. it's like A beats B, B beats C and C beats A type of things (but it's more complex than that of course).
Sigh no it doesn't.
I've made a BvC, I've made BvA and BVB, I tried to make a Vitabarb but Inever really got that build off the ground because Ididn't like the damage, I've made pretty much everything but a WWsin and Kicker, Ive only played an assasin once and all my toons are untwinked and never leech games. What does that have to do with anything, absolutely nothing.
Your missing the point if you still dont understand, I dont know what to say other then try some other games out once and awhile and you will see.
If everyone has the same gear, they can only do one thing hope for a lucky hit, Im not gunna discuss it any further, because im raiding at the moment, sigh Patchwerk hateful strikes are brutal, I hate Naxxramas if anyone plays WoW at all.
