Hello~~~~
Thanks for the great guide, already tried it and on 120ish clvl now,
i have some question about this build:
1. i have lucky to find GT relic and played without the GT shield instead using
Titan's Blockade

Titan's Blockade
Barbarian Shields

'UmZolLew'
Runeword Level: 110
At least 1 Base Level in Runemaster: Maximum Elemental Resists +2%
With 15 Base Levels in Runemaster: 10% Deadly Strike
40% Hit Recovery
Adds 15-25 Damage
Slows Attacker by 10%
+(130 to 150)% Enhanced Defense
+(1000 to 2000) Defense
(20 to 30)% to Strength
20% to Vitality
Maximum Mana +5%
Elemental Resists +35%
RW (see this one on last season top ladder GT build, so idk the effect want to try it lol :D) and use the arkaine's valor variant build despite i'm still on 120ish clvl not on 130, with the buff on the char sheet it show only 13-16k dmg, is it good enough or something wrong with my build?

2. i have seen your video about farming on scos, but in the end the item is for different build right? the IED build if i read correctly on on this thread, which one is better the phys build or the IED build? if the IED win, please care to add on the guide thanks

best regard, have good day~~~

are all great options for a shield if you find a relic. If I were to choose, Blockade would be perfect for Scosglen. Your tooltip seems fine for that level.


IED is roughly the same damage but no leech, so I didn't add it to the guide, even though I wanted to.

I have made Crescent Moon kreigsmesser with 293%ed and Eidolon in a sacred barb helm with Pdr.
Why am I getting much better results with 3 pieces of the windcarver set when compared to these?
With 3pc windcarver my guard tower range is 7436-16k, with Crescent and Eidolon, it drops to 7062-13k.
Is there something that I am missing?

yes. You missing that set gives more damage. The set axe alone gives more damage then crescent moon. Set boots gives highest damage bonus, and set bonus gives plus 125 flat damage

GT is the best summon in the game.

Been looking into this build a bit. I love Poison WW, but I played it so much that it got a bit boring for me. Farming Scosglen still is quite slow with WW barb, GT barb looks like it can do faster Scos and I definitely like the 'fire & forget' style.

I have half of the endgame gear, I guess I'll give it a try! I can always switch back when needed ^_^ I even found the GT relic which should help a lot.

The WW bar is really weak, at least for me, I tried some build with this one, but I don't feel good about it, hope it will be rework in the future.
