[[Wiz_Kid - Barbarian>Hall_Wiz_Kid]] : SuperVita Tri-Wizard Barb (mainly TS/Nova)
#contents

**Character Intro and Overview [#x89e9fa8]
I created this barb just to see if it works, I was majorly impressed once I got all my gear.  Tstorm hits at least 2-3 times per second and does 29.5k-30.5k dmg each time, it's like a super-fast FoH that you don't have to aim.  Nova does about 26k and with lots of fcr it is very nice also. Basically you can use the same gear as an shockadin, but the weapons are different.

He also has Uber Life, just for kicks, I loaded him with charms, he's only level 87 so he still can get well over 25k life.

**Stats and Attributes [#n87d3918]

All vit, no pts in str, dex, or energy.  Obviously not a char you can start your first ES with, but very fun none the less, i get almost all my str from my barb's passive skill.

**Skills [#u10bb634]

What I tend to do is just run smack into mobs, I keep warcry on left click (1 pt entered) so when i get there i stun them all, then I cast ancients call (1 pt entered) and just nova away! I've noticed though that sometimes even though it says the duration is over 3 min, it goes away rather fast so i usually just alternate.

I maxed BO, TS, Nova, and enough Battle Command to get me +5 all skills.

**Equipment [#h956f5d9]
2x Thundergod's Anger (Unique Raging Knuckles) dstoned with light skill, forged with +1 all, socketed with +1 all skills + 1 combat mastery
&ref(./weapon.jpg);

Reason I chose this was not only the +1 light mastery, but the obvious +18 (+21 after dstone/forge) to TS (yes even though it's oskill barbs still get +18), but each pt in ts = 8% light dmg for nova), eventually when I get +3 more all skill jewels I will probably switch to a tele weapon and still be able to have lvl100 tstorm and probably more light skill dmg)

2x One Rings dstoned with max life, forged with +1 all, with +1 all +1 combat mastery. Potentially thinking of using a constriction ring (Ring X, yes they do exist I have coupon to prove it!).
&ref(./ring.jpg);

1x Spellcaster's Aide dstoned with max life, forged with +1 all, with +1 all +1 combat mastery, will probably not change to Mara's cause I loose 60% fcr and all that life and mana come in helpful.
&ref(./ammy.jpg);

Zeus's Belt and Gloves - dstoned with max life (not quite to 88, but that's what i plan on doing) (gloves are exact same).
&ref(./belt.jpg);

Boots - i'm still working on these, I really like oak sage though I get lvl48 with the boots and the resists aren't bad, i've been looking for better and will dstone these with max life probably also, or maybe fcr to reach the 200% breakpoint)

Helm - !LoD! Griffin's dstoned with max life, forged with +1 all, and 2 +1 all skills + 1 combat mastery jewels. A must have uber helm.
&ref(./helm.jpg);

Armor - Insight armor, obviously used for the mediation aura, and the +5 all skills. I never have to worry about running out of mana. I've dstoned max life on the armor, and tinkering with scalps to increase mana regen.
&ref(./armor.jpg);

+all skill items are extremely important, they help boost lightning mastery and thus help you kill faster!

Weapon Switch - I like oskills! I choose 2 secret of the ooze, just to boost bo a lil bit more, plus i get poision nova! amazing how fast it kills, plus poision explosion does a whopping 50k psn dmg, it's fun, just go in cast AC and poof. Another funny option I sometimes uses is 2 scepter's of the Sorcerer-Kings (move my skill jewel and maples over to the weaps)! It's fun also, you get some pwn'age orb/bliz/meteor out of it! Not nearly as great as tstorm/nova, but i makes you a true three element char, plus you get to tele.

Psshhht....please, who needs sorcs! Barbs don't!
 
&ref(./weaponswitch.jpg);

My charms are mainly +Warcries (12!) ( I just can't help loving the insane amount of Life I have), I have a few combat mastery charms, as well as two clever of the angels gc's(+.75 life mana/clvl) a normal clever, and a rare gc with at gives +80 life.

All unique charms are forged with +16% max life.
**Merc and Merc Equipment [#v7f8008d]

Haven't really needed a merc, if i was going to have one I'd probably consider switching to eternal reign for the additional +skill and more resists.  I'd then get a mediation (i've got to have either it or insight) merc and probably give him some form of conviction so i wouldn't have to cast AC all that often (even though ancient's call already gives -100 all with 1pt in it). 
**Comments [#v3b883f4]
Truely a fun test for any player looking for a rather unique build! 
Plus all your friends will say, how comes you aren't wearing anything?

&ref(./conring.jpg);
Yes, it does exist! Ring X! BTW, when I tried to use AMMY X it gave me highlords! talk about being upset!

I know most people will say, "What about your resists, they suck!", two words in reply, (warcry stuns, i can run around stun for 9 sec in hell and have everything pwn'd) other word (life, i got ~24,000 life, and that's plenty to spare, i sip on greater healing every now and then due to drain life, but rarely do i ever get killed, feasible all the way down to nilathak's, tried and tested up to 4ppl (can't say why not more ^wink^).

#comment
- for a chara with a gear based on uniques with no reroll and no massive forgin is really impressive!  -- [[ultimategrayfox]] &new{07-07-2011 (Thu) 10:47:46};
- SajberHippen, these are older pictures, I actually rolled my life over, and lifedrain wasn't ever much of a concern, i could WW and get life back even with my wands lol. -- [[Frome]] &new{02-21-2008 (Thu) 08:44:07};
- I don't even have d2 anymore...I work like 60 hours a week doing software development, and the last thing i wanna do is play on the computer lol  I still look up old d2 stuff though, i won't ever let it go!  That was a really sick bow I had though. -- [[Frome]] &new{02-21-2008 (Thu) 08:42:34};
- On removing Life Drain: At least ~10-15 of it can be removed by tinkering, right? I nearly always tinker away life drain, it's irritating and tinkering don't do much good else anyway so >< -- [[SajberHippien]] &new{02-15-2008 (Fri) 10:17:56};
- Frome, you should post your zon from last ladder. Definitely the best zon ever in Bnet! -- [[Yosh]] &new{11-20-2007 (Tue) 20:40:15};
- You can dstone the Constricting Ring with Replenish Life and that will remove Drain Life mod completely. I don't know if it's worth 20 maple leaves though. -- [[Easytough]] &new{09-15-2007 (Sat) 20:51:58};
- It existed is pre 1.09, you can look it up at diabloii.net, the reason it's not listed on Arreat is that it no longer drops on realms (don't think it was ever implemented) post 1.09.  No LoD rings exist on Tsuru's site. -- [[Frome]] &new{08-17-2007 (Fri) 22:42:40};
- Weird that ring couldnt find it on the Arreat Summit any info regarding its existence, neither in tsuru site  -- [[Xc0n]] &new{08-15-2007 (Wed) 15:17:08};
- Look at Ring X! lol lvl req so high, but i couldn't help but make it! -- [[Frome]] &new{08-14-2007 (Tue) 15:57:33};
- Forgot to look back at this. I don't have life DStoned on all of my gear, especially since I'm DStoning damage on my weapon, and defense on my armor, but I can probably get more life on my other items. I'm hoping to find BO on a rare ring with druid skills or something. -___- -- [[mas73rw0ng]] &new{07-30-2007 (Mon) 00:13:25};
- Well does your druid have BO? I know of another druid that has ~25k life, mine is now up to 26500, I forged all my charms with 16% life.  I haven't yet started to socket some of my nicer charms though. Remember though (mas) you can dstone life on gear also, I didn't forge any gear with +life because I needed the skills I used scroll 40.  I will probably redo all the pictures and update this soon. -- [[Frome]] &new{07-13-2007 (Fri) 02:42:13};
- I don't think my fury druid will ever come close. Even with all points in vit, almost all gear with +16% life forgings, life charms, and an oak sage, I only have 11,100 life at best. T___________Tv -- [[mas73rw0ng]] &new{07-12-2007 (Thu) 11:36:02};
- Update, I switched one of my weapons with Saiyajin, and I dstoned with light skill dmg %, even though my skill went down 1 for tstorm(lvl 99), my damage increased to 24k-25k, nova went up to 24.5-26.5k.  Also got an act2 merc, which I put my insight armor on after switching my own armor to Eternal Reign. -- [[Frome]] &new{07-05-2007 (Thu) 15:09:41};
- I think I said that XcOn, I totally agree with you, so far though I haven't really needed a merc, but if i did use one it would be act 2 conviction, maybe i'll go ahead and do it. -- [[Frome22]] &new{07-05-2007 (Thu) 03:28:15};
- The Belt of Zeus:  Comes with +1 all skills, forged with +1 all skills, and socketed with a +1 all skills jewel. -- [[Blinn]] &new{07-04-2007 (Wed) 21:00:32};
- Why not trying to get the Decals and make a Enigma you end getting oskill tele and lots of goodies on it and you can switch the Insight armor to your Merc (Act 2 Conviction?). Or make an insight weapon for him and give him an eternal reign armor just for the +skill aura it has. -- [[Xc0n]] &new{07-04-2007 (Wed) 13:10:13};
- Can someone tell me how that belt and one ring have another +1 skill? -- [[How]] &new{07-04-2007 (Wed) 11:54:47};
- Well sometimes i forget about warcry, but I really can't remember the last time he died. He really is a true tank, but like i said before I had no idea it would be this fun or sucessful. -- [[Frome]] &new{07-04-2007 (Wed) 09:04:49};
- Wow nice build.  With 23k life he can get run over by a train and still feel nothing.  Has he ever come close to dying with that much life? -- [[Blinn]] &new{07-04-2007 (Wed) 07:36:29};
- Thanks! Caught me as I was uploading the pictures! -- [[Frome]] &new{07-03-2007 (Tue) 08:07:28};
- Only one word amazing i already had considered doing some test on my barb with skills layout aswell seems you did good with them i might try it sometime it looks fun, great build :) -- [[Xc0n]] &new{07-03-2007 (Tue) 08:01:18};
