    EDIT: i have switched to drow light mace as this gives a better crit rating of 2.95 (12-18 x5 19-20 x7) vs 2.9 from skullsmasher. Also skullsmasher doesnt accept sentinent :/

    End game charisma will be around 74+ with Frozen fury = 110DC, Dire Charge = 120+ DC



    Will link gear soon

    The +2 critical multiplier from Frenzied Berserker and +1 critical multiplier from Swashbuckling don't stack. So the only weapons it really makes sense to use with this combination are Handaxe and Light Pick.

    Not having Improved Shield Bash (and the hit stat to use it) robs you of a significant amount of dps.

    Fury of the Wild is arguably a better choice than Legendary Dreadnought for such a build. With PSWF + Shield Bash, Eternal Fury procs at an astounding rate - easily sufficient to keep a target permanently helpless via Overwhelming Force. Couple this with the auto-crits from En Pointe and Adrenaline on massive critical multiplier weapons and you do tremendous burst damage.

    16barb/3bard/1fvs is the build i play atm. I consider it way better because of the HAmp, HPs, DR and Greater Rage. FotW with the Tornado and Van Richten Cane is without a doubt one of the highest DPS build i've played at R8-10 because of everything you said above. Might even be very close to monks.

    Default Interesting suggestions

    Firstly i thank you for providing feedback.

    I am aware that the crit bonus from swash will not stack with focused wrath, however the end crit profile is still correct as scourge gives a sacred bonus and hence stacks. +2 base +2 focused wrath +1 scourge for x5. I like to think of the swashbuckler part providing the big crit range among other goodies like skirmisher.

    I have not thought of the fury route and that does seem like a good option. However my concern is that how many mobs are immune to knockback?
