    Default Armor Feats for Barbarian or Not

    Hi folks. So I'm rolling through levels with my WF Bbn. I currently have Adamantine Body taken, but have read that it is less than useful as levels progress to have that 8 armor. I was wondering if I should look at dropping that feat and what level it becomes less worth while. Thanks.

    Depends how yor using that 8 AC (Wel, 6 compared to the free COmposite plating)

    Whats your Dex? Whats your AC RIght now?

    If your asking whether a 38 or 32 AC will make a difference in the Gianthold (L12-14 Quests) then no, it wont.

    but 42-48 definatly does.

    Str 18
    Dex 12
    Con 18
    Int 8
    Wis 8
    Cha 6

    Was figuring on the THF line, PA, Imp Crit, and Toughness are the feats I'm looking at.

    I have no idea the AC that I'm likely to get. More of a casual player, but hardcore in my casualness if that makes sense. =D

    10 base
    8 plating
    5 docent
    1 dex
    1 haste
    3 sheild of faith potion
    3 barkskin potion
    4 barbarian uncanny dodge
    ---------------------------
    35 AC
    3 chattering ring
    1 sheild form cleric
    1 barksking from ranger
    4 paladin aura
    ------------------------------
    44 AC
    7 +5 sheild

    the first section is by yourself, the 2nd is with party help and 1 raid item, and the 3rd is with a sheild.

    There aren't enough feats for a wf barb. If you say that you need the 3 two handed feats and power attack and an improved crit that is all your feats. You can pick up toughness at level 15.

    So I'd do:
    1 adam body
    3 two handed
    6 improved two handed
    9 improved critical your choice
    12 greater two handed

    Around level 10-11 respec the adam body to power attack.

    No, you can't. Codog said that Superior THF is coming! No room for Toughness or WF Body feats until L18.

    P.S. I know you're just trying to prevent multiple feat respecs to make it work. But, do you really think you can live without PA until L10 or 11? I know I couldn't.

    After taking the THF feats for the last barb I created I must say I dont understand why people think these are important....

    Nice for TH'd Fighter for some exra damage.. but a Barb? Seriously, You dont need em. 20 extra points of splash damage doesnt mean much.

    That 20-25 dmg hits the primary target, too. Add that to first and fourth hit and you're adding 40-50 damage every 2.6 seconds against single target. Throw in 3 other mobs and it's 160-200 damage, or the equivalent of an extra 3 hits (or 1 crit) every 2.6 seconds. It's amazingly powerful.

    That and the Two-Handed Weapon Feats are passive, unlike Cleave. We all know Impaqt loves to click on Cleave.

    Default Okay...did I get something wrong with my build then?

    I've just made a WF Barb, did a re-roll already and then ate an int tome...

    I took Mithral Body as a feat for the +5 armor...figuring the Addy Body (being heavy armor) would screw up some of the Barbarian abilities...focused mainly on Str and Con - my Dex is only a 10.

    Did I goof there?
