    It says that with Battle Commands by increasing it, it will only increase the duration, not the amount skills. But I could have sworn I had my skills increased by 3 at one time by this barb, did the 1.10 patch change this?

    yeah, skill shrine does +2. BC has always been +1 to my knowledge.

    Ok, I've never done Battle Commands so I'm planning to do about 10pts into it, I'm assuming that will give me a good radius. You think I should do less or more.

    I think you shouldn't bother with that shitty skill.

    Bo and Shout are the best warcries. Though I would think Battle Cry would be useful in 1.10 with the mobs that can overrun you quickly, but a low level is fine, enough to stun em so you can kill em.

    more points only increases duration, not radius.

    only do 1 point.

    Here's my thinking, I want to do a barb with warcries and concentration. I've been reading online and it says that Shout, BO, and Battle Commands are synergies to eachother. My primary attack would be concentration which would recieve a major synergy from BO. I will max BO and Shout and Concentration, if putting pts into Battle Commands just increases duration not radius then I will just put 1pt into it.

    For a Concentrate Barbarian:

    10 Bash
    1 Leap
    1 Stun
    1 Leap Attack
    20 Concentrate
    10 Berserk

    20 Shout
    20 Battle Orders
    1 Battle Command

    20 Weapon Mastery
    1 Increased Stamina
    1 Iron Skin
    1 Increased Speed
    1 Natural Resistance

    Adds to 108, of 110 possible. The last two you'll probably never reach anyway, but put them wherever you feel like if you ever get there. My bet would be on either Berserk, Iron Skin, or Natural Resistance.

    Is Bash strictly for synergy, or are expecting me to use it?

    synergy plus it you first skill so it helps in those boring low lvl times.

    Exactly what Jesse said. It synergizes and provides you with an early attack. Once you get Concentrate you can only put one point into it per level, so you might as well spend those points earlier on since it'll synergize your main skill eventually anyway.

    By the way, this is my own interpretation of a Concentrate Barbarian build. Some, such as our own Jakeman have suggested maxing Berserk, others suggest maxing Bash, others suggest only putting one point in Shout and maxing both of the other two, etc. My build is focused on balance between outbound damage and defense.

    you said only to put 10 pts into berzerk and bash, which i agree on....not to max'em. I want to do warcries to so i like the idea of maxing BO and Shout. Unfortunatly i can't start any of this until mid january at school.
