The one other thing I wanted to ask - how do you determine your summon's Resists and % Chance to hit?

Thanks,

Honestly, I'm not sure how minion AR works exactly. But even without additional AR, they're still perfectly capable of landing hits.

Minion resist on the other hand is divided into two - skill and item. Minions get 15% resistance per skill level. This is from both soft and hard points. They can also gain resistances through items. Both are capped at 75%, so that's 150% in total. With resist penalties, they can get up to 150, 100 and 50 resists in hatred, terror and destruction respectively.

Still Bear. EWD removal from Bear Stance barely has any impact on this build.

Thx for nice guide! Have some questions:
1) What about kraken stance? Any reason to use this as main stance? Maybe switch to kraken where bear don't needed or lion\wolf do the same?
2) How about Lightning Arena and Colosseum oskill? Does this a good upgrade or not much point to use this?
3) I have
Der Nebelring
Der Nebelring
Ring (Sacred)

Required Level: 120
+(21 to 30)% Bonus to Summoned Minion Damage
+(21 to 30)% Bonus to Summoned Minion Life
+1000 Defense
+400 to Life
Damage Reduced by 5%
+(41 to 50) Life after each Kill
-2 to Light Radius

. It's better than for example +1 all skill and 15% md or ml rare ring?

Sorry for the very late reply, I haven't been online much recently.

Anyway,

1) That would mean sacrificing your helm slot which is occupied by
Morthwyrtha
Morthwyrtha
Barbarian Helms

'No'
Runeword Level: 100
+(3 to 4) to Barbarian Skill Levels
-5% Slower Block Rate
+(41 to 50)% Bonus to Summoned Minion Attack Rating
+(1 to 3) to Banish
+(31 to 34) to Death's Fury Totem
+(31 to 40)% Bonus to Summoned Minion Damage
+1 to Maximum Barbarian Minions
which would mean losing minion count.
2) They could possibly be helpful, but not necessary. Mostly with Colosseum reducing enemy DR.
3) No, its not. You have enough DR, you need +skills and minion stats.

So if I want to have Blade of the Jitan as a switch weapon I need to have Wizard's Path as well to keep bonus from totems?
