    That would be a WW barb. What kind of polearm? Did you find a nice one and decide to make a barb for it?

    A polearm barb is basically the same as a standard WW barb. Just max polearm mastery this time.

    unless you are specifying a different combat skill (conc, frenzy, warcry, etc.) specialty all barb guides are pretty much the same

    20 mastery
    20 ww
    20 bo
    20 shout
    1 zerk
    1 speed
    1 res
    1 command

    Hehe...I'm working on one right now actually. EBotD great poleaxe, and the rest of the basically standard gear for pvm barbs. A friend of mine uses the same weapon for his barb, and he ran some killer baal runs with him till he was level 98 :eek:.

    yep eth botd gpa is king

    it exactly hits the last bp

    range 5

    great average damage

    tighter damage range than ghost spear

    relatively low dex req for 2 handers

    and it looks stylish

    combine with might merc using pride and the barb becomes a lawnmower

    This thread has made me wonder why BvC barbs usually use beast + ebotd or griefz

    wouldn't range 5 work better than range 3? is there a reason?

    Dual wielding means you get more hits in.

    With dual wielding, you get more mods, more dmg, more hits. A BvC uses beast for fana and +str. There is nothing better mods wise than grief+beast for a barb.

    As for Polearms, a EBOTD would be the king. But I dislike polearms on anything but a fury druid.
