shaman barb

Post by BASED_GOD on Sat Sep 21, 2013 8:29 pm

I'm looking at the set as i'm writing this and i'm wondering, is it viable? Does it do enough damage and can it tank anything? The shield got terrible block afaik. And can you build a pure shaman/caster barb or are spirits needed?
The build looks really fun but yeah..

Thanks for any answers!

A spiritless caster barb would be somewhat pointless as protector spirits buff your spell damage and as an oskill build you wouldn't be putting too many points elsewhere. The set is very good and when supplemented with the right items can be just as powerful as any other set. Give it a try.

It has Edyrem as reanimate (50%) and 3 o-skills when you complete entire set, so it's not bad... But then again, could you do better? Very much likely Very Happy For pure summoner, set is kinda lame cause you can craft for far superior modifiers...

Does the o-skills tempest,train of fire does enough damage with the protector spirits help? and how does black mass work? I know that it gives avoid,frw and some other stuff but do you need to hold down the mouse button for it to work or does it have a duration?

Enough to be better than doing nothing.

Depends what you consider by "enough" Very Happy Damage is really good cause those skills are great... For Black Mass, you have to hold the mouse button entire time (no duration)...

EDIT: As already said by Moasseman Very Happy

With enough I was thinking complete the game on destruction difficult.
And maybe do some of the ubers Smile
Maybe not laz/marco or ulldy, I think you know what I mean Smile

Thanks for all the quick answers, they were really helpful Smile
One more thing though, what should I get for boots, rings, amulet and gloves? I got some stuff farmed up but I don't think those will be of any help... And is it true that str>vita? Surprised

I'd go like this:

Rings = good rares with minion damage/life/resistances (or "Der Nebelring" rings, but they are hard to find)
Amulet = good rare with minion damage/life/resistances (and preferably: + skills, proc, stats, etc...)
Boots/gloves = if you want minion damage/life/resistance than good craft, otherwise = items with good modifiers (+ skills, %DR, defense, stats, procs, etc...)

Yep, strength all the way, no doubt about that... Salut
