that is why i said almost as good. both works just fine but as you said there is much better options for axes and itemization on deathgaze build for sure. :)

Thanks for the guide, first time barbing - went Axe (deathgaze) using Nimmenjuushin but I see both are very similar. Though could potentially mix with Iceburst for - res (just count 25 hard points would be -46% enemy cold res to which 30% of phys dmg is converted). Not sure if Iceburst effect counts towards it only or also for a while to use different skills.

Anyway I think on switch you could use craft + one of items that have "X% bonus damage to mark of the wild"
I am using Witchhunter's Hood as a mid game option for 5% DR 5% max res mostly.

Any reason to not do craft shield? I see other S(S)(S)u shield options that could work to cap block easier.
I am trying to craft barb shield with +2% block (+other useful mods).

Ice burst - resistance counts only towards iceburst itself afaik.

Craft shield is also good option but imo invictus goes pretty much over them but that is just personal preference mostly :)

Only quick solution i could think of are sapphires in your weapon.
Also you could use Prodigy runeword belt (Hel rune) to get 45 mana after every kill and some increased mana regen. The level requirement is quite low with lvl 33.

mana issue wont take long. as you level up you get more mana and also you can use Mo's with Mana on attack for example to cover your mana needs. prodigy belt is also useful. in higher levels you dont even need those.

The one that I am trying to make is decent.It must have
30% to castv50 on mele atack
max damage
+skill coliseum

Perfect roll will be with + skill .Onlt posible on barb weapon.And one more think is you can add Mount Arreat set as option for endgame.

I dont consider this craft weapon as good option as you lack damage and you can get much higher damage with weapon damage modifier proc and max damage + elemental damage. Mount of arreat set is good but as i tested it i kinda get better stats and damage just by using runewords :P
