just curious. for some reason when i first stated playing, i always thought this was a cool armor, leviathon green barb looks cool imo and not as popular obviously. anyone have any good builds around this armor? just curious, or am i the only dork who likes this armor. i just found a new one, so thinking of new barb...
It's outclassed by a lot of other armors (****ing Bashiok is a useless pos when it comes to balancing D2), but it's still workable. I wouldn't consider using one at all unless it had a high roll, to be honest.
Socket it with a 40% ED/15 IAS or 40% ED/filler and it should work out nicely.
It's not really suited to any specific build so you can pretty much do anything you want with it. Titan (all or most stat points into strength) conc or WW build with SS maybe?
yah i know it sux lol, just wondering if anyone liked it besides me. im not all about perfect char with strongest builds obv. i play alot of hc sp, and barb are so flexible with the extra bo'ed life that i was considering a new toon. im thinking 'green machine' would be a cool name
A Titan WolfBarb/Whirler with 40% DR (gotta get the best rolls on it on both Leviathan and String of Ears).
You'll also want a 3 socket Tomb Reaver, filled with Shael runes. The rest of the standard Barbarian items fills out the rest of the item slots: LoH, Highlords, Gores, etc, etc.
In your stash, you could keep a pair of War Traveler boots and a Shako (P.Topaz or Ist socketed) if you want to MF The Pit or somewhere.
That's pretty rough, and requires a lot of items to work... and Leviathan doesn't really do anything special for it. It's just a Barbarian with a big green armor that you can't see because he's wolf shifted. :P
