Running a Tundra Walker

Post by Ohmarinus on Sat Dec 27, 2014 3:06 pm

Hi guys, I've always been the kind of guy either hiding behind a shield with maxblock, or taking out enemies down with a ranged character.

Now, I've started to play a bit with the dual wield axebarb, first I tried Nimmenjuushin + Throatseeker (Bearclaw proc + high life leech), I had the idea it would make survivability very high, which is true. However, it doesn't work as I had wanted. The damage output is not that great, and the build doesn't use the Tundra Walker set.

After I got the full Tundra walker set, the Neph Weapons from it is really nice as it allows you to use Runemaster as a second passive. After putting mostly On runes on my gear and just having some basic charms, I tried running some ubers, such as K3K with Bear Stance, which kind of works, but I don't think it's made for K3K Smile I use Deathgaze as a main skill, which works very well to kill stuff, I have all resist maxed and am trying go get def as high as possible. Have not worked on getting more -enemy resist since I'm using bearstance I figured I didn't need any -enemy resist.

I'm a bit lost, it doesn't feel like it's my 'thing' but am also aware that it might be because I just suck at melee and close-combat playing. I just don't want to give up there.

The worst thing is that the barb doesn't have a way of regenerating life well, I tried using blood-hatred, but don't understand the dynamics. Is it a good skill to alternate between, blood-hatred and Deathgaze?

I hope someone can point me in a good direction Smile as I would like to learn how to use this build properly, and therefor I should learn to understand the concepts of the set and the dual wield barb!

Hmm, so it's not just me Smile Okay, great.

Are there any other good items to combine with the Tundra Walker set?
I have found a "Warrior's Robe" and a "Candlewake" and "Splinter Mail" armor.

It's something totally new to me.

Maybe I should run other chars until Blood Hatred is fixed.

probably better concentrate on cold proc - cold res, im running a barb now too, still low lvl tho. get a boarfrosta for -100 cold res an proc, use 2 nimmens or u can either change to sssu hand axe for epic dmg output, buff motw ofc, and get a khazra plate for more life if u got it. for ele dmg i would say use titans steps but its just my choice. I never tried full tundra, there are some ppl on realm who use the better ask them Very Happy

It's terrible, I tried it with many different gear setups and have now trashed my barb for the time being. Double wielding axebarb is a very limited build and absolutely terrible in Dest. The dual wield swords build is still suitable though, with the dual wield set you can run some areas. I just wish it was better and as usual, using a shield makes the barb shine a lot more than dual wield. Throwbarb is the kind of barb I prefer the most. Warriors robe, T6 Balanced Axe or Sacred Unique Throwing axe, and some other nice parts can make the barb a nice farmer in Dtran for getting Su's and Sets for your other chars. Wandelkoning, Sots and Candlewalk are also nice items to use early on. Later on, Ghal belt and Qor in barb shield will help a lot Smile Qor in boots too btw.
