Thanks, I was wondering which one you used, since there are many good choices. I have a spare Viz-jun and Jitan, and i was tempted to farm an other one (Rathma, maybe, since its easy). In the reasonably feasible ones, Astrogha would be nice, but he is a bit long to kill.I will go for Viz-jun for now, since I use wolf stance almost all the time, and if drop Astrogha's trophy, I will do the sleep again.

Nearly all weapon damage characters will make best use out of Rathma Square trophy for sleep charm. That or Viz-jun can be nice if you're still lacking DR/defense, but I'm not sure you'd need that as iron spiral barb given your other gear. Astro trophy would be kinda wasteful for this character.

I tried the endgame spec today but i am too squishy. One thing is that i reach only 50% block rate but i think that is because i use not enough IO runes. I have not enough socks because i use runewords (helm, armor, boots). And the other thing is that i have only 90k armor with Wolf Stance.
I have the most easy and moderate charms.
Did i miss something?

I struggled for quite a while with that.

Switch to bear. You don't have the gear to support wolf. Once I switched to bear I could actually play, and anytime I switch to wolf (or forget to switch to bear after running a ways), I die almost instantly.

If I survive my momentary lapse, I'm back into bear and doing just fine.

Let use dex craft on boots and gloves. Change and see differents :D and, you can craft barb-only helm with ancient hand and %att. :lol:

I'm not fan of bear stance. I used wolf for almost ubers (except Viziun and Rathma). With Vith runeword in plate belt and Nih on Ancient armor, you'll reach ~250k def, 25DR, and 50-60% ctB. Its good time to farm TA and Torajan jungle. :bounce:

I use wolf for lots of Ubers too. Until you get the charms and gear to support it tho, wolf was too squishy for me. At least for farming.

I'm sure I'll switch back to wolf eventually, but for now, it's faaaaar easier farming with bear.

Nope, i'm using TU6 gild shield, MO with TCD and ED. I think you miss some mid-game charm. Alot of of them can take easier with barb. Ureh is easiest with our, duncraig can take some dies :D, use ancient hand with xazax :lol: , gear check with Qouv Tsin. I think with that charms, i'' reach >250k def.
