    What build goes best with Immortal King?

    A lot of people say WW, but I tried it and the chance to hit is really low. Are there any other good choices?

    Well, I have an IK WW barb. You really shouldn't dismiss it based on chance to hit if you aren't shoring up the AR in any way. It's not hard to do. I use Angelic Wings and Angelic Halo, but I'll quote from the guide I used...

    There seem to be alot of questions about this on the forums so i thought I would go ahead and put down some solutions for you guys. One option is the use of the Angelic Ammy/Ring combo which boosts your AR alot. The ring gives a +12 per level AR boost with two items. This is a common option for PvP barbs since AR is crucial there. I think there are ways to get around the AR problem without using the Angelic ring/ammy. My solution was the Ravenfrost for AR and dex along with other nice mods such as cannot be frozen and a Metalgrid amulet. I also ran into a few nice AR charms along the way which I kept. This should be enough AR for PvM. I believe I ended up with around 10k AR and an above 80% chance to hit which was good enough for me. I had only two GCs with AR one was +65 another +125. Hope that helps.

    Get the Angelic combo as already stated. (2rings+amulet)

    Or, get 2x Eth runes on the Maul. For a -50% target defense.

    *cough* melee sorceress *cough*

    On the topic - you can just throw some points into dexterity untill you find good AR boosters like Ravenfrost, AR charms and Demonlimb - the enchant charges last for ~10 minutes so it's really manageable.
    Later you can respec your stats anyway.
    Also, stick two diamonds into your helmet - you'll replace them with something more useful as soon as you find a better solution to your AR problem.

    (but seriously, try a sorc )

    Note that Immortal King's Will is unequippable by sorceresses. Only a barbarian can complete the full set. But some of the partial sets are still useful for a sorceress. I had an enchantress that borrowed gear from my IK barbarian for much of Nightmare difficulty, although she eventually gave all of the pieces back once she was higher in level.

    IK sorc is actually pretty awesome ( both in bear form and normally ).
    Some would say that is the best use of IK set, since it is not that good for a barb as compared to high end runewords.

    Is it true that people used to use it for Berserkers? What happened?

    I've never heard of anyone using the IK set for Berserk. It doesn't really seem like the set has much to offer a berserker.
