Hey Guys!

So I'm pretty garbage at this game in general. I've never done uldy or anything beyond that.

This is what I'm thinking of making a poison barb since they are doing some tweaks to it.

Leveling Gear

Everything socketed with -Poison Resist until capped then Dex for Block

Head: Glowskull
Chest: Jitan's Kamon
Axe: Rockshatter
Shield: Destroying Angel
Belt: Wormtongue
Boots: Death Spur // Zealot Rush
Gloves: Vilehand
Ring: Xorine's Ring
Ring: Xorine's Ring
Amu: Angel Heart // Dreamcatcher


Mid-End Game Gear

So far this would be the items I want to go for the Throw Barb. Let me know what you guys thing. Everything socketed with -Poison Resist until capped then Dex for Block

Head: Royal Circlet // Witchhunter's Hood
Chest: Hratli's Craft // Scales of the Drake or Scales of the Serpent
Axe: Ophiophagus (New SU) with a The Demon Core for Gamma Field on Kill //
Shield: Triune's Blessing (Poison Runeword) // Madawc Val Narian
Belt: The Endless Loop // Black Void
Boots: Knight's Grace // Fangskin Scales
Gloves: Abandon or tainted crafted or Stareye's Claws
Ring: Empyrean Band // Empyrean Glory // Xorine's Ring (If Lotteried)
Ring: Empyrean Band // Empyrean Glory // Xorine's Ring (If Lotteried)
Amu: Beads of the Snake Queen // In For The Kill //Gallowlaugh


Also what would I use for a Merc?

Maybe pure poison. Ancient blood snakestance super super max and runemaster. Socket -poison res runes. Titans buff with runemaster gives nice defense. All vita.

Smax snakestance and spamming fortress could be good.

It should get its damage from snake stance, I guess we don't know how much damage it will actually reach though.

for leveling i'd rather use 2x sterrenvogel throwing axe TU's, it has +4 sk and -20elem pierce, and probably both the new single target psn skill and snake stance scale with lvls so that'd be way stronger. Lastly it has a very low STR req (170 at t4) which is a + when lvling.
As for armor since you're poison jitan kamon's kinda useless go for robe of leaves it has a nice 20% life and -10 psn, or maybe queen of glass for -20 psn, works too

I was thinking of doing the same but then did a small test run yesterday and around lv40-50ish i couldnt stand shift-attacking anymore... so no barb for me i guess :mrgreen:
