    Frenzy Barbarian

    With this Frenzy Barbarian guide, you will have about 100% crushing blow chance, life and mana leech, a reasonable Life Tap casting chance, and he should be able to solo the ubers pretty easily.

    Skills:
    1. Frenzy - 20
    2. Double Swing - 20
    3. Axe Mastery - 20
    4. Battle Orders - 20
    5. Battle Command - 1
    6. Iron Skin - 1
    7. Natural Resistance – as many as it takes to get full resistances after you have fill the rest of the skills except Taunt.
    8. Prerequisites - 3
    9. Taunt - All remaining points

    Stats:
    1. Strength – 196 for use of the upgraded Arreat’s Face
    2. Dexterity - Enough to use Fal'd War cry Spears
    3. Vitality – Anything left after you have finished with vitality and Dexterity.
    4. Energy – None because you first of all will not need much and second you will be attacking fast enough that the mana leech will work very well.

    Equipment:
    1. Helm
    a. Upgraded Arreat’s Face usually socketed (with Cham for cannot be frozen, Ber for crushing blow)
    b. Upgraded Etheral Arreat’s Face socketed with a Zod
    2. Armor
    a. Any Fortitude Runeword with over 1500 defense and more than +28 for the resists.
    b. Enigma Archon Plate for the ability to teleport and the added strength bonus.
    3. Belt
    a. Verdungos with most reduce damage % as possible for its added life, small faster hit recovery bonus, and the damage reduction
    4. Gloves
    a. Draculs Grasp for the extra added strength and the small chance of Life Tap
    b. Steelrends for the enhanced damage and the chance of crushing blow %
    5. Boots
    a. Gore Riders for the deadly strike and crushing blow chances (can be upgraded if you want)
    6. Rings
    a. 2x Angelic Halo for the attack rating (only with the Amulet)
    b. If you did not put a Cham in your Arreat’s face, you will want a Raven Frost with its cannot be frozen, added attack rating, and added dexterity.
    7. Amulet
    a. Angelic wings (if you used the Angelic Halos)
    8. Weapons
    a. Primary Set
    i. Death Berserker Axe for its attack rating bounus, its chance of deadly strike, and its chance of crushing blow
    ii. Beast Berserker Axe for the Fanaticism aura and the Crushing Blow bonus
    iii. Grief Berserker Axe for the ignore target defense attribute, the added damage that also works for the frenzy attacks, the increased attack speed, and the prevent monster heal helps too
    b. Secondary Set
    i. 2 +3 Fal'd War cry Spears

    Inventory:
    1. Barbarian Hellfire Torch at least 15/15 but as high as possible
    2. Annihillus at least 15/15/X but as perfect as possible
    3. No Combat GCs are needed because they do not add that much
    4. 4 or 5 War Cry Grand Charms for the added skills to the Battle Order for the extra life and mana
    5. No Masteries GCs are needed becuase they do not help that much
    6. Many Life Small Charms will come in handy (something like 10 +20 to life)
    7. Attack Rating Small Charms to garuntee a hit almost every time
    8. All Resist Small Charms if your items and skills did not cover them

    Leveling:
    You probably don’t want to use any of your stats until you have reached level 76 so you know the benefits of all of your items but on. You do not want to waste anything.

    Yeah, (I think he's talking about me), this is sweet, but can you make a guide to what you should trade for these items, and what chars to use to get them. And this is why frenzy barbs are my favorite, and can pwn almost anything, or maybe anything.
