    If you're talking about the Toughness feat, it's unnecessary. The "Toughness" pre-req on Frenzy refers to the lvl 3 Toughness enhancement, not the feat. Because it wouldn't be D&D without confusing & overloaded nomenclature.

    Can you post your epic choices under LD and FotW please.

    Also, how do you get Master's Blitz up, the build seems light on Tactical feats. What do you use most often?

    Question

    I've been looking for a Barbarian build for a while, and I like the looks of this one.
    The thing is I only have 32p build and no tomes available.
    Is there anything I can do to make it viable with those factors in mind?

    Now that Turbine has dropped the STR pre-req on Overwhelming Crit, the only stat pre-reqs on this build are STR 17 for ITHF/GTHF and DEX 17 for Manyshot. Everything else is just bragging rights.

    For a 32-pt build w/out tomes, I would start 16/16/16/10/8/8; you can either put a lvl-up pt into DEX or buy a +1 DEX tome off the AH to qualify for Manyshot.

    I prefer to get Manyshot ASAP, but that means backloading the THF feats. If you'd prefer to focus on melee-only while heroic leveling, just reverse the order on PBS/RS/MS and the THF chain.

    Hi there, first off let me say thank you for this amazing looking build! I am getting ready to TR back to barb as it's my favorite class and I love the idea of having a bit of ranged capability so I was going to give this a go.

    Is this still an awesome build? I remember that the synergy between fury and ranged was changed a few updates back but I cannot remember what it was. I've looked at your new Sonja build and it looks great but I like this one better personally.

    I guess my questions are, are there any changes to enhancements that'd you'd make now since this builds inception? Is furyshot still viable?

    Thanks for any replies.

    The old build is kinda viable but a bit outdated.
    The biggest change happened when master blitz was changed from 250% damage boost to 70 melee/ranged power. That basically killed the utility of manyshot because the low base damage doesn't really justify put your greataxe down most of the time. That's why I created the melee only version now.

    That being said, if you want to have a mix of melee and ranged barbarian for fury destiny I'd recommend a different class split and enhancement split so you can get the most out of playing in fury of the wild which is always very fun.

    A Class split that I see well is 12 barbarian, 6 ranger, 2 fighter.

    6 Ranger Deepwood gives you sniper shot (+2 critical multiplier and +2W) that you can use in combo with adrenaline during manyshots

    Fighter gives 3 feats, 2 bonus and heavy armor proficiency.

    At level 24 you have the option of Ic bludgeon or stunning blow according to your taste.

    Edit: Reading fail on my part. THF vs TWF, duh. I also removed the comment about Cleric, since I don't see 2 feats worth removing to fit in Divine Might.

    12/6/2 is a very strong split. You might consider taking Ranger at level 1 for some extra skillpoints.

    I've been thinking about going 11/6/3 for working through Barbarian PLs, since we get a silly amount of PRR/MRR for a cheap 6 AP into Stalwart Defender, or maybe 10/6/4 for an extra feat.

    Stalwart defender is not possible because it prevents you from becoming raged so that rules out 11/6/3
    As for 10/6/4 you lose some healing amplification and some hp for 1 feat which is something not worth since we have all the feats we need so I'm pretty sure the build 12barb 6 ranger 2 fighter I posted is the one I like most.
    Cleric option is totally viable but kinda tight on enhancements and feats but workable for sure. You end up loosing some minor Prr and utility for like 5 more damage which is always nice.

    Wow, tyvm for the detailed response!
    How does the new ranged build compare to your 18/1/1 red sonja in terms of dps though? I really only want ranged for fun/flavor because melee gets very boring to me after a while but if the dps is a lot lower than I'd probably just go with your pure barb RS 2.0 build since I melee 95% of the time anyway.

    I just TRed from a BF Cetus build and the mix of melee/ranged was the most fun i've had on my melee in a long time and the dps was quite nice but barbarian has always been my favorite class so I think I will give this one a go.

    Ty again for the builds and the replies.

    I'd try pure barbarian first. If you feel you are really missing ranged ability you can go the other route
