Seems like sword + shield WC barb may now viable thanks to new casting speed. Although trading a lot of dmg from affixes (all attr.), Oil of conj and Arcane Hunger.

yes its on par with 2 swords in terms of fpa casting but there is no shield really worth using imo. Even collector is a dps loss to a bad rolled wc sword. That being said if the goal was to just become tankier than you could easily do that with

War Cry is an affix for Barb Shields :bounce:

*Edit* just noticed the Hall of Fame section :D Thanks for that!
I also managed to kill Diemoss solo, but probably couldn't have pulled it off without Unholy Armor relic which saved my butt a couple times. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpSku7sOawA&t=92s

Guide is fantastic. Appreciate the effort you put into it. I think recognizing the interaction between Life Stolen per Hit as it relates to Arcane Hunger is a great example of the type of thinking build-makers need to have in this game to encourage the Devs to take this mod to the next level. I am very much looking forward to giving this build a fair chance on Hardcore.
Cheers.

This looks like a lot of fun to play, and like a build I've not seen before. I have been waiting for something different to play barb, and I think this is it. First I'll have to level a barbie. Let the fun commence!
