    Default 34 point barb build?

    So i'm pretty set that my next life is going to be barbarian. The only issue is i have no idea how to build a barbarian. I'm asking for somebody to essentially give me a guide that holds my hand through the building process. I'm looking for tank btw.

    just a past life?
    Do you mind multiclassing?
    What gear do you have? Do you have a lot of 2 handed or 1 handed weapons lying around? any trapgear, what tomes have you eaten already?
    Doing bard6/rog6/barb 8 will give you trapskills, self buffs, high saves&evasion and decent quarterstaf dps
    With propper gear, this will allow you to "tank" anything heroic, besides raid bosses.

    Have a look at the Battleragers thread. A heavy cleric or FvS splash helps address some of barb's shortcomings, namely lack of self-heals (Ameliorating Strike); also nets you Divine Might. Rgr instead of rog would also work, if you'd rather have extra ranged feats (take PBS + Manyshot ofc), Ram's Might, and +10% offhand procs from Tempest instead of Evasion and rog skills.

    I have a +2 tome for all stats but int and chr, i have all pieces but the scroll to make an epic Sword of Shadows, my current life is ranger so i do have barbarian worthy armor. I do not mind multiclassing at all.

    depends what kind of barb you want to play. theres some Frankenstein builds, but if you want to play pure and rely on CSW/SF pots you just max out str and con. any left over points put into dex. if you go dwarf, don't need to max str or invest in it if you take the enhancement Throw Your Weight Around using axes, hammers or picks. instead max con and at least put enough in str to not be burdened like maybe 14 or 16. level ups in con.
    Gary Gygax quotes

    The essence of a role-playing game is that it is a group, cooperative experience.

    There is no winning or losing, but rather the value is in the experience of imagining yourself as a character in whatever genre you are involved in, whether its a fantasy game, the Wild West, secret agents or whatever else. You get to sort of vicariously experience those things.

    Role-playing isn't storytelling. If the dungeon master is directing it, its not a game.

    When AI approximates Machine Intelligence, than many online and computer run RPGs will move toward actual RPG activity. Nonetheless, that will not replace the experience of "being there" anymore than seeing a theatrical motion picture can replace the stage play.

    The secret we should never let the game masters know is that they don't need any rules.
