CapnCrunch - My old HG Barb Template

Post by CapnSkillet » Sun Nov 03, 2013 10:02 pm

I dug up this old template from the archives. I used this primarily for mines and other open field pvp. I'm not sure how it would perform today, but I plan to try it if I get into closed beta.

Half Giant
Fighter
Barbarian
Creation:
Take 5 from All stats

Starting Traits:
Warlords Page
(Tough as nails also optional.)

Then I put the rest in int. In game, I took int to 60 first, then maxed str, then con.

Apply a +25 str rune and you should top str at 175 when you hit 75.

Discs:
Commander - 20 pts Damage Chant
Gladiator – Free heal/health regen
Bounty Hunter – Free track, snare
Runecaster – 20 pts in stackable str buff and 20 in resist rune if I have the points.

Final stats:
Str: 175
Dex: Base
Con: 150
Int: 60
Spr: Base

Skills:
Axe - Gold
Great Axe Mastery - Gold
Medium Armor - 100%
Parry - Gold
Athletics - Gold
Toughness - Gold

Rage - 40
Shout – 18 (This is so the recast is up right when their stun immune runs out. Some like to GM.)
Vengeance – 1 (Some train this higher but I don’t even use it much)

Gear:
Legendary Champions Axe of Alacrity (PoD would be ideal)
Jade Hood of the Shaper (+20 con and health regen) (+24 is ideal)
Jade rings and amulet of the shaper (+20 con and health regen) (+24 is ideal)
Resist Northman chain chest/sleeves/legs/gloves (Cause it looks the coolest to me)
Resist of windlords Northman chain boots

Changes you would make? Still viable in today's SB? Discuss...

Thanks! I loved it back on test server before shutdown. It could wreck those annoying CN druids in just a few hits. Normally barbarians are not high priority targets, so I could easily take out 2 or 3 targets by myself with a good group behind me. It isn't the best 1 vs. 1 against anything ranged, but for mine fights it was awesome. I plan to roll it if I get into closed beta.

Aye looks good, pretty much how I build my HG barb. If I were to use it for solo/small scale I'd refine some points for GM shout/JM vengeance

Agreed. Others made the same suggestions back in the day. I may have had extra points, because I posted the template before I hit 75.
