Berserk

it's not a build, just equip two baba's.

'ed if you're filty rich, and use
Find Item
skill.

here a nice illustration from Carbot :D

but whats the best build to do that? WW?

Depends on how/where you wanna hork.

Horking is really just using
Find Item
to dig through corpses. The only build part to that, other than maxing
Find Item
, is that you want to avoid cold damage and partnering with people who blow up corpses and that you generally want to maximize your mf/gf for the horking so far as your approach allows.

How you get to those corpses to hork however (and by extension just how much mf/gf you can get away with) depends entirely on where and how you want to hork.
Classic examples include:
- Zerker down your own kills, hork (needs some dmg gear)
- Have your merc kill trav for you (allows for maximizing mf/gf, needs a merc capable of dishing out solid dmg)
- Follow some Javazon around cows and hork her leftovers (also allows for maximizing mf/gf)

WW requires a lot of gg gear, so zerk is probably your best option.

In my opinion there are only two ways to go about this. Either make a Pitzerker and farm... The Pit or make a WW Barbarian and farm
Travincal
. A Pitzerker requires Enigma to really be efficient, whereas the WW Barbarian "only" needs 2x Grief and the rest of his gear is pretty affordable. I have both and find WW
Travincal
much more entertaining / profitable. There is a lightning Sorceress with Infinity for everything else.

Should I max
Find Item
? How many points is necessary?

I made a Barbarian with full IK set to run
Travincal
... I gave him also a low barb torch , 1 Ravenfrost and a good life-leech ring... I usually use
Concentrate
(maxed) to kill the Council one by one. I have spent 1 point into
Find Item
and on the swap I have 2
Heart Carver
... so... few minutes to kill the whole group... few seconds to "hork" them... It is creepy, but fun and profitable... they drop lot of money too...

PS: my main target is to kill the Council fast so I have spent more skill points on combat abilities and not in
Find Item
itself...

Using Ravenfrost or any other source of cold damage on a horker barbarian is a bad idea as this leads to breaking the frozen bodies into pieces and not being able to use
Find Item
on them.

I know... with IK full set you already do lot of cold dmg (set bonus on the
Maul
)... but I mainly want to kill them with a cheap build (full IK set is cheap)... when they don't get shattered... they will be horked...

Yea, I'm trying to build a horker my self. Just haven't really researched the pitzerker build. I remember having a WW barb back in the days when IAS didn't affect them.

I think IK is great value for its cost, even if some corpses shatter.

All prices are negotiable.

I went pure Gold Find (2250) and about 400MF and my barb can't kill a thing in Hell, so merc does all of the heavy lifting in Trav or I follow whoever kills in cow games and make sexually suggestive sounds with all of the dead cows....

This game is weird...

I've got a
Frenzy
Horker and just farm Trav primarily nowadays. Here's my setup if it helps:

Gear:

Helm
:
Immortal King's Will
socketed with 2 ptopaz

Chest:
Skullder's Ire
(cheap) OR Enigma (almost there! - just found a
Jah
, now looking for a
Ber
)

Belt
:
Goldwrap


Gloves:
Chance Guards
OR
Laying of Hands
(if you need the extra damage / fire resist to survive)

Boots
:
War Traveler


Amulet:
Highlord's Wrath


Rings: Any combo of Lifestyle / Mana steal rare rings,
Bul-Kathos' Wedding Band
or
Carrion Wind
. Could also go
Dwarf Star
if you're looking for Gold as well.

Weapons: Main hand Grief
Offhand
Blade Of Ali Baba
OR 6
Ist
Phase Blade
(more expensive, but high MF and much faster)

Weapon swap: Dual
Phase Blade
with +3 Warcry (socketed with
Ist
)
--I like to get the +6 extra Warcries to boost my
Find Item
% up to 53, instead of the higher MF from other weapons. More runes!

MERC (A2 Might):

Andariel's Visage
socketed with
Ral

Arioc's Needle

Duriel's Shell


No cold damage anywhere, and my Merc can pretty much solo them if need-be. There might be some better runewords to upgrade to, so let me know if you guys have any suggestions for this setup.

1 point to all prerequisites
20 points to
Frenzy
— main damage dealer
20 points to Weapon Mastery of Choice — Adds Damage, Attack Rating, and
Critical Strike
(Sword for me)
1 point to
Increased Speed
— Helps you move faster
1 point to
Natural Resistance
— Massive boost to resistances
1 point to
Battle Command
— Increases skills
20 points to
Shout
— Massive Defense boost. Some prefer maxing out
Battle Orders
instead for extra health, but I prefer the extra defense.
1 point to
Leap
-- Great mobility (if no Enigma)
20 Points to
Taunt
-- Useful for lowering attack damage and rating on non-boss monsters, as well as pulling monsters towards you. Also adds damage to
Frenzy

1 point
Battle Cry
- Reduces defense and damage of enemies (including bosses)
1 point
Berserk
- For physical damage resist monsters
Dump the rest of your points in
Find Item
(I've got 8 base points so far @ level 93).

You want to aim for at least 20
Find Item
(after all skill bonuses from buffs, items and charms) for 51% chance, so if needed, can put less points into
Taunt
.

Base Strength: 165
Base Dex: 140
Base Vit: 240

So my horker got to lvl 78 and I still need to lvl up more. He dies easily and gets frozen all time. :|

Thinking of putting a
Cham
in a
Shako
. Do I need to wear a
Duriel's Shell
?

OP
