    i don't want berserk, it's hard core. frenzy or WW each look good. i'm not sure which to go into. my s/s barb is up to levle 28 now.

    :wtf: My polearm barb which I was playing before my comp died uses Berserk. What's wrong with it? Frenzy is only good with two weapons anyway.

    it takes your defense to zero and you can't leech with it

    he's level 61 now, he's a WW sword / shield barb. i'm preping him to wear stormshield and lightsabre (of course those will take time to find or trade for). in the mean time, does anyone have a Telling of Beads for trade on HCWest? i need it to complete my disciple.

    You will need berzerk for immune to phys monsters, but no more than 5 points in HC mode. I would definately go with WW because you are s/s and don't have a second weapon. Frenzy dmg sucks.

    Berzerk is the only magic dmg attack a barb has. No leech, no defense, but you still have you shield blocking and (hopefully) high level battle orders to absorb at least some damage you may take.
