You need ambi with warlords (morlochs). So much better dps than a 2h.

I've tried that but it doesn't give me the warm fuzzy feeling of a PoR drake axe.

And yes, the neph barbs are everywhere. They regenerate like a madman. Neph fighters of all kinds are on the rise and tbh I'd rather that than have another flavor of the decade bird scout.

Dunno how the DPS compares to throwing, but yea, I really like the style rhythm you can get with the Drake. My guess is that it nearly balances out with the lv 35 slash expose and the def cut, but I could be wrong. Stam usage is better with a PoR axe over dual throwing, too, right? I should refine it out to see for myself. Atr would certainly be better with throwing.

Fought a couple templars to a standstill, which is a first for any barb I've rolled. Maybe they weren't any good. But I'm having more fun with my rogue neph bard right now killin high def toons (strippin buffs and sitting on over 2200 atr in precise).

Are you the owner of a Nephilim bard named MrT INI or something along those lines?

Nah, mine's called InfernalChant. Damage on the DD is sorta meh (200-500) but doesn't miss much. Gold dodge with a +50% dodge buff, SoS and high regen (4.4k hp) makes him pretty hard to kill. He's more fun than the barb in roguebane/lagbane.

Unstyled - Not using a weapon power

Styled - Using your weapon power that grants the greatest damage boost (i.e. for Great Axe, that would be Carnival of Gore)

This is probably the only toon I've ever seen that would lose to the infamous boxer mino.

I love mine...up until the point you're pellegorned. Then it's just another Barbarian. Otherwise they do very well and (with the exception of DWoB maybe), you can survive anything by sitting if you're not regen debuffed.

I made one too and can't say I'm impressed. It feels very similar to a HG axe ranger.
Mine got raped by a vamp high def stafflock btw X-D The total regen kill was bad, and then he was high def X-D.

No shame there. Warlocks crush regen builds if they go toe to toe. On this build I would kill a lock with hit and run AND ambi Throwing Weapons.

A chicken can take both runecaster and skydancer giving a higher combined str/con/60 int. Made, played and enjoyed both.
