All breakpoints would be lot of numbers, you mean for 2h axe? Breakpoints change depending on weapon type, and even sub type, like different 2h axes will require different ias because their wsm is different.
Just learn how to use speedcalc, itll help you later with different characters.

Have the ahk scripts bene prevented from working? I can't get an old barb script to send keys to the game. But since there hasn't been a patch and I'm playing SP I can't see how that would happen.

Yeah im working on it again now i just cant get it to work is all. It tries to work i see it pop up then it instantly goes away as fast as it pops up and never loads. Ill fool around with it some more and see what i need to change or something.

Yeah im needing the BPs for 1H+Shield.. i got 2H Axe here in this Guide and can get Throw BP from another thats why i was wondering the best way or a list for all of them since im also doing tons of testing since this is my first time playing this class.. Ill see about getting that Speed Calc working. Thank You!

EDIT: Sweet i got it working.. Apperently it had something to do with the Java Runtime Environment? Once i got the executable to change to a Java icon it works like a charm. Thanks again!

Clearly you are doing something wrong, because it works.


Everytime i run it to pops up and goes away and never loads. Im fucking with it now that i have more time to mess with it than i did this morning when i first tried it.

EDIT: Got it working now. I had to fix the icon to Java Runtime and it fixed it. Thanks.

is slighty above it in raw damage output despite lower total stenght. though the set gives you bladestorm proc. question is: if using candlewake, would you still use the wolf belt? Or is there a better BIS option for belt then?

Id go either str craft for helm or for aoe warmonger. Boarfrost isn't that good if you arent trying to cap pierce on iceburst.
For chest+belt set, obviously different belt if you skip wolf chest.
But don't underestimate procs, bladestorm is better than deathgaze, so ~10% free chance to cast that is over 10% more total damage, thats unlisted, on top of everything else. Only place where this could work against you would be maybe fight such as astrogha, where proc can kill totem and heal it.

Finally did void. I got so frustrated by the bossfight ( either rathma wtfpwned Mendeln in the first 2 mins or i played it perfectly but then I died like a dumbass when Rathma just killed Mendeln and was about to die himself....) that i gave up on it for a week.

The Str craft helm was a fantastic idea, Aerial. My raw damage output was unaffected by it directly (Idol of Rygnar gives a nice dps boost by itself) but i was able to wield my gotter in combo with candlewake, increasing my average damage output by about 5k, which was huge for me.
Looking into the belt slot now, might do another str craft depending on the rolls. I'm thinking about making one with honored system with UMO's, but i dont have the good UMO's yet ;)

EDIT: did some str crafting and compared a few setups:
the belt has 24% to str (with lah runes) and + 90 flat str (after MO's) + 1 barb skills
the helm has 17% to str (with no lah runes, i needed sha for IAS) + 113 flat str after MO + 3 barb skills

- str craft helm + marchosias belt: 32k to 44k buffed damage w. bearstance
- str craft helm + str craft belt: 32.2k to 44.6k buffed damage w bearstance: an increase of approx 1.1% as compared to the first setup
- Idol of Rygnar helm + str craft belt: 32.4k to 44.8k buffed damage w bearstance: approx 2.3% increase to the first and 1.2% to the second setup.

defense stays roughly the same, damage increase is not significant, especially with the loss of the 5% bladestorm proc. My overall clearspeed went down by 1-2 mins in fauztin.

So overall, despite not using the marchosias armor, i'dd still use the belt regardless of chest armor. At least, untill i can get my hands on some UMO's :)
