Well; I got bored :p

So i made one in single play to see how it would do @ lvl 99....

Anyways: Gear

Shako
COH
2x HOTO Flails
Mara's
SOJ
Carrion Wind
Arachnid's
Waterwalks
Frosties

Skills

20 War Cry (dmging skill)
20 in all synergies
3 in B/O,
3 in BC
3 in Shout
1 in natural res
1 in all prereqs
Rest in either iron skin, or B/O, BC, Shout.

Act2 NM Defensive Merc
Crescent moon Weapon (for static field and decent dmg)
Andariel's Visage
COH

Your resists will be 75/75/75/80 in hell, and your merc's will be 75/75/75/85.

WC will do roughly 1800 max dmg, and stun for 8 seconds.

You will have +14 to all skills.

Comments?

Unless you have your inventory full of WC Grand Charms, you will never hit a 1800 max dmg with War Cry.

In fact, a fully-synergized War Cry, @sklvl 44, makes 1748-1794 dmg, with 9.6 stun length.

This can be quite good, but you will need a plenty of Mana, cuz @sklvl 44, War Cry costs 53 mana per Cry.

Hence, you will need to max Battle orders and put only a point into Inc stamina, speed, Iron skin and Nat resist (with your "caster" equip, 1 point is just fine and 1 point in Shout is good).

This barb can be quite good in PvP, but I don't think it's so good in PvM (you have no chance with P.I. monsters and you have a very low damage against all "stone skin" monsters).

However, I like your idea, it can be interesting to experiment. :)

Go with Wizardspikes if you need the mana. I actually will be re-doing my warcry barb so he can use a SS with max blocking for PvP (a little- hehe).

Why SoJ + Carrion? You might try a mana ring (rings with over 100 mana + energy).

I'll help more when I come back from breakfast.

FYI: Barb and Sorc FCR BP's are the same. You should try for 105%, but if not, try for 75%. (I think thats the next BP).

Also: You might try Magefists instead of frosties for some more FCR + Mana.

Max out BO. It is needed even more than a synergy of War Cry for you. It will double your mana, which is EXTREMLY essential in warcry barb builds.

(I've made 4 of these in 09)

Hmm, well I chose carrion for the poison creeper mainly, just cause it helps against PI/light immunes. Ive tried it in hell, and it seems that the faster mana regen on some of the items acctually makes you GAIN mana faster than you're losing it :p It takes a good number of hits to kill guys, but since they become stunned, it doesnt matter anyways :p Havent dared try it against a prime evil yet; i dont think stun affects them like it does other monsters :p
