WW Dual Wielding. A Few Questions.

Allright, so I'm planning on making a WW Barb, using dual axes. and I've got some questions.

1) Which Axes? I have a ebotd Zerker, and a Beast Zerker, and was told by a friend to use those, because they're effective and i already have them. But wouldn't 2 ebotd's be better?

2)Armor. The same friend recomended I go very low strength and very high life. I could get a Dusk Enig easily, but they're extremely ugly. Same with an archon. But i don't really care much, just that the char is fun to play. What armor recomendations besides enigma are there? My main question is about the armor, since i would be trading for it. I have a 44/24 Levi, but i really don't like the str req or the color. What armor's out there have decent str reqs and good defence? Just bringing myself back to dusk enigma?

1) 2 ebotd wouldnt be better because with calculations we have found that ebotd + beast dishes out the most damage. not to mention that beast has desireable mods such as the strength bonus and openwounds etc.

2) your friend is right. enigma is best for caster killing but if you plan to not use enigma then i suggest you go fortitude or duress. duress is very sexy and cheap.

thanks for all the reply's. I've got almost all my gear worked out, i just need to decide what gloves to use as Drac's dont seem that practical since ctc doesnt work with WW. I also need to find myself an arreats, an Up'd one was given to me but i won't have the 196str to use it. I also made a mage plate enigma, so I'm well on my way.

of course. with that kinda look, barbs will look like angels~


use the beast/ebotd and use enigma and get an anni. Don't use any stat points until lvl70 when you can use your anni, then get the base strength for your enigma. And it's strength should cover you until you can use the ebotd which gives another 30, and beast gives another 35ish, so that should cover your strength. Then put the rest into vita, use verdungos, and angelics/raven and your dex is covered.

With this, i have 11k ar WW, 491vit and 5.3k life. If i had life charms i could get much more, and a torch.
