I never made a barbarian so i wondering about some armor issues. So who out there is wearing light armors and heavy armors as a pure barbarian? I mean if you have the dex do you want to wear +5 mithral chain or delving suit? And what dex do you need to do so if you are also using armor mastery? Any comments from the guys that are wearing heavy armor? Would you have made your build differently and kept on wearing medium armors? Are there any barbarians wearing light armor with two levels of rogue? Evasion and maxing out umd and another cross class skill seems tempting. Any comments on these subjects?

Barbarians aren't proficient with Heavy armor. if you want AC. Go for mithral Full Plate it's medium, and the dex bonus is low enough so it doesn't require obscene amounts of dex to attain. I hope this answers some of your questions.

Use medium armor.

Yea it can work to use light armor and pick up some rogue for evasion, but really evasions isn't quite as cool as its hyped to be, there really not much serious magic damage being thrown around by enemy casters.
