    Default Back after a year away.

    Ok so I came back after a year to a new game it seems lol . I feel kinda left behind as far as current gear goes.
    What i'm wondering is what gear I should be looking for I have a Half-Orc Pure Barb build.
    Currently i'm lvl 25. If ya could give me some advise as to items for each slot as in Head, Neck , Armor Ect.... would be fantastic.

    Thank you all

    I was pointed to this thread which gives a decent update on gear slots though its perhaps missing the storm horns loot, of which only the guardians ring will be really appealing to you.

    I was in a similar situation to yourself and came back within the last few months. I found the barb playstyle to be untenable as so often in groups you are required to drop back and heal yourself. I trd into a centered kensai monk with a pali splash for super high saves and evasion, and my current gear goes as follows.

    Head: Black dragon helm
    Body: Black Dragon Robe
    Cloak: Adamantine Cloak Of The Wolf
    Goggles: Int field optics
    Belt: Epic Spare Hand
    Necklace: Stolen Necklace
    Ring 1: Guardians ring
    Ring 2; Dun robar with ex str and stunning
    Gloves: Gauntlets of immortality (AMAZING for cocoon use, dont think as a melee you dont need devotion)
    Trinket: Planar Focus
    Bracers:Conv Of Parrying
    Weapon: Cleaver

    At present, due to the barb class being pretty bad at present, I would say a True Heart of Wood is a good starting point.

    If you want to stick with Barbarian, however, in the hope that the class improves, blackdog's list is serviceable. The convalescent bracers are not presently available to loot but hopefully will be again.
    I don't have a zerging problem.

    I'm zerging. That's YOUR problem.

    I should add that I haven't included the specifics of my gear (static rare loot now comes with a selection of stats instead of one set bonus) so as a result I've used various slots to fit in things like good luck +2, heavy fort, exceptional stats etc - this will come down to personal preference.

    Yeah I understand Barbs have kinda flatlined as of late. But I have always enjoyed playing one. I'll be looking into other classes aswell as multiclass just havn't really decided on what class/class to go .

    Thanks for imput
