i haven't seen a frenzy guide like this...thoughts on whether it would be effective or not? i will test later perhaps on SP.
bash, dbl swing, dbl throw, stun, conc, howl (6) - prereq
iron skin (20)
nat res (1)
total: 89 - dump rest into weapon mastery
idea is to have stupid high defense and life, making it near impossible to die. rely on CB to kill things (mainly a boss running build actually) and frenzy's speed to maximize your CB. therefore doing dmg isn't the main focus since you'll mostly be killing with CB.
ideal gear setup (brainstorming here)
metalgrid/angelic/mara's (for AR b/c we dont max mastery right away)
wep1: ebotd (if you're rich)
wep2: beast (for the CB)
switch: CTA x2 (again, if you're rich)
draculs (life tap)
raven (CBF, dex)
haven't thought of armor/belt (prolly string of ears/tgods and whatever armor with the most def would be). also any set of weapons where 1 has good CB is fine. i for one will probably never get close to a zod rune for ebotd or ber for beast...
str - for gear
dex - for gear & reasonable ar (try to pump ar with gear first)
vit - rest
anyone ever try a build like this and did it work?

Re: new frenzy build?
I would suggest putting less points into shout/iron skin and more into double swing/taunt. My barb has 3700 life, 12000 defense, and the only thing that has killed him this ladder has been iron maiden. And for the set up, arreats > guillaume's IMO. The life steal/extra skills/resist outweigh the CB.
