    ------------------------------ [ 1. The Basics ] -----------------------------
    ==============================================================================
    
    Well the basic use of a barbarian is to smash and hit everything in your way.
    There are tons of Barbs already on Battlenet, but hey, whats one more? Anyway
    the basic thing is learn skills that make your enimes toast, from what I have
    seen thats not very hard.
    
    The have three different kinds of skills, you have War Crys, Combat Masteries,
    and then you have Combat Skills. Let me go into a little ore detail with these
    skills.
    
    Warcries: Deals with skills that raise you stats, and sometimes hurt the
              enemies.
    
    Combat Masteries: Lets you master different skills to give you a good
                      advantage in battle.
    
    Combat Skills: Skills that do anything from Bash, to Leap, or you can just do
                   a Whirlwind of attacks to beat the mess out of the enemies.
    
    Well I could go more indepth witht he skills, but thats what I will leave the
    Skill section for. For now just sit back, and read a couple of tips that I
    have for new people.
    
    ==============================================================================
    ---------------------------- [ 2. Begining Tips ] ----------------------------
    ==============================================================================
    
    Out of all my time of playing I have found out things that took me a long time
    to figure out. Now I will save you the time and just tell you some helpful
    hints.
    
    -Until level 15 DONT Dual Wield. Or at least until you find some equipment
     with halfway decent defense.
    
    -Leech Mana will be your friend throughout the entire game. Try as soon as
     you can when you start to get a Manald Heal Ring. I only have one and I can
     use Whirlwind forever, and it will never run out.
    
    -Polearms just arnt for Barb, so I really don't think its a good idea to use
     them.
    
    -Get Whirlwind ASAP (as soon as possable). I just started using it, and I'm
     level 65, I could have been using it sooner but I thought it stole to much
     mana. Then I found out that you can hold the button and it will go on until
     you run out of mana. If I constanly hit something I wont run out of mana.
    
    -Never fall for cheap tricks. I hate to say it but I feel into a trick myself.
     I was just looking for a game on Battlenet, and I saw a game called -I Dupe-,
     well I dont like to cheat, but I decided to check it out. There was a Amazon
     in the game and she told me to put my sword in my Stash, and come outside of
     town. Well I did as she said, but in the pit of my belly, I knew something
     was up. Well I got outside of town and she killed me, I was like "WTF", but
     she just said to get my sword and come out and kill her and she would dupe my
     sword. So I did as she said once again, but this time I got outside of town
     and again she killed me, but this time my sword fell on the ground. She took
     it and ask me what I would give her for it. Now around this time, I knew I
     wasn't getting my sword back, but I asked her for it back. She left, and that
     was the last time I ever saw my sword again. I only tell my sad story so that
     no one else falls for such a dirty trick. This why Battlenet is so messed up,
     cheaters, hackers, and all of the above. No amount of time and training will
     help you if you get cheated out of your best sword. Never fall for this very
     underhanded trick.
    
    **More To Come As They Smack Me In The Face**

    ------------------------------- [ 3. Warcries ] ------------------------------
    ==============================================================================
    
    As I find myself as a Whirlwind Barbarian, I dont really use Warcries at all,
    I dont think they are all that usefull, but its really up to you. Warcries are
    skills that have different effects, and they usually affect a large area of
    things.

    Effects: Raises you and your partys max Life, Mana, and Stamina.
    Pros: This is the only Warcry that I like, its good to use if you are in a
          group, or even by yourself. It will raise your Life, Mana and Stamina
          to very high levels. Somone used this on me once and it raised my life
          to 3000. You should at least put a point or two into this skill.
    Cons: Its not an aura so it will go away after 2 mins.

    This is where all of your Passive Skills are. A Passive Skill is a skill that
    is automatic, meaning you dont have to do anything for it to work, it just
    does. This tree mostly deals with Mastering weapons, but there are a few other
    things in this tree that will be of alot of help.
    
    NOTE: This whole skill tree is Passive!

    Suggested Points To Put In Combat Skills

    For the last time, this is how I tend to raise my Barbarian. You may build

    Total: 34 Skill Points Spent
    
    ==============================================================================
    -------------------------- [ 6. Stat Distribution ] --------------------------
    ==============================================================================
    
    Everytime you level up, you can put 5 points divided between your four stats:
    Strength, Dexterity, Vitality, and Energy. This is how I suggest you divide
    your points, and remember this is how I feel about it!
    
    ==============================================================================
    Strength
    ==============================================================================
    Strength is the main thing you should be building up. This is the basic thing
    a Barbarbian should have when jumping into a huge group of enemies. Having
    high Strength means everything when trying to equip new armor, and weapons,
    because your strength determines the armor you use. OK say your barb has 100
    strength at lvl 60 (which, to say the least, is bad), now at lvl 60, your barb
    could be using really good armor and weapons, but most weapons that require
    you to be lvl 60 also require you to have high strength.
    
    Strength also determines how high your melee damage is, as well as your throw
    damage. So I say try to keep your strength at the top of your to do list.
    
    Suggested Points Each Level: 2
    
    ==============================================================================
    Dexterity
    ==============================================================================
    As a Barbarnian, Dexterity is right below Vitality of when to skick points in.
    Mostly Dexterity determines Bow and Crossbow damage. This is not a weapon you
    should be using on your barb. A bow on a barb is like sticking a squirle with
    a flamethrower, it just doesn't work.
    
    Now one thing Dexterity does help you with is your defense, and your chance to
    block with a shield. Another big thing is it determines your attack rating,
    and how much you do when you throw. You will never have to worry about it, but
    this determines what bow or crossbow you can use.
    
    Suggested Points Each Level: 1-2
    
    ==============================================================================
    Vitality
    ==============================================================================
    Life is one of the things that most of the time, you dont have to worry about.
    There are a few reasons for this:
    
    -You have Battle Orders, which raises your max Life, Mana, and Stamina.
    -Theres all kinds of equipment that give you life bonuses.
    -Every point you put into this stat, you get 4 life.
    
    So its easy to understand that Vitality determines how much life and stamina
    you have.
    
    Suggested Points Each Level: 1-2
    
    ==============================================================================
    Energy
    ==============================================================================
    Mana is something that you need dearly, but you shouldn't put any points into.
    Putting points into mana is just pointless, you only get 1 mana every point,
    and you can find mana leech rings to get the job done. Doing this is just a
    waste!
    
    Suggested Points Each Level: 0
    
    ==============================================================================
    Overview
    ==============================================================================
    Ok this is a run over of what I just talked about.
    
    Points Divided Per Level:
    -------------------------
    Strength: 2 (always)
    Dexterity: 1-2
    Vitality: 1-2
    Energy: 0
    
    I say this is a good way to raise your stats:
    
    Level 1
    -------
    Strength: +2
    Dextarity: +2
    Vitality: +1
    Energy: +0
    
    Level 2
    -------
    Strength: +2
    Dextarity: +1
    Vitality: +2
    Energy: +0
    
    And keep swiching each level.

    ==============================================================================
    
    Ok, this is the section where I will explain everything that I just typed.
    Skills, stat points, everything. I will just give you a big over view of what
    I think would be the best way to raise your barbarian from a little weak baby
    to a huge mean killing machine.
    
    ==============================================================================
    Level By Level
    ==============================================================================
    Ok I will give you a good start on how to raise your barbarian for the first
    30 levels. I will tell you what points to put into your stats, and how to

    Outcome

    Ok, now after I just went through 30 levels, you should have a basic
    understanding of what to do with your barbarian. Now is is what I think you
    should look like after you get done building your barbarian.

    **If any of this stuff is wrong plz tell me. It was really hard to add all of
      this stuff up, and I really hate math so this could really easly be wrong. I
      hope you don't get mad at me if any of this is wrong, I'm just stupid.

    ------------------------------ [ 8. Equipment ] ------------------------------
    ==============================================================================
    
    OK, I'm level 80 and I still have crappy equipment. It may be because I am
    really unlucky and cant find anything, or it may be because I dont wish to buy
    crap off of d2items.com. Either way, here is some of the crap I suggest for
    you to get. This stuff is not manatory, and if you cant seem to get any of it,
    dont worry, like I said, I have crappy stuff so just wear what you can get.
    
    ==============================================================================
    Weapons
    ==============================================================================
    Weapons are things you have to have, theis let you lay the smackdown on
    enemies. These are just some of the weapons I would like to get, but you cant
    have everything now can you?
    
    Ith Beserker Axe (Six Clean Sockets)--->Axe
    Ith Thunder Maul (Six Clean Sockets)--->Mace
    Ith Great Poleaxe (Six Clean Sockets)--->Polearm
    Ith War Pike (Six Clean Sockets)--->Spear
    The Grandfather Colossus Blade (1.08 patch)--->Sword
    Ith Colossus Blade (Six Clean Sockets)--->Sword
    --------------------------------------
    All of this stuff is Uber (highly good
    crap) Equipment, and it will most
    likely be really hard to find any of
    this stuff.
    
    ==============================================================================
    Armors
    ==============================================================================
    Here is what keeps you from dieing. Get really good armor, and you want have
    to worry about getting hurt.
    
    Thundergod's Vigor War Belt--->Belt
    Arkaine's Valor Balrog Skin (1.08 patch)--->Godly Armor
    Shaftstop Mech Armor (A Cheaper Armor)--->Armor
    War Traveler Battle Boots--->Boots
    A Good Pair of Crafted Gloves (Hard to find a Good Pair)--->Gloves
    Vampire Gaze Grim Helm (1.08 patch)--->Helmet
    Stormshield (1.08 patch)--->Shield
    
    ==============================================================================
    Charms & Jewelry
    ==============================================================================
    Little things that can make a big difference if you dont have any.
    
    100psn/20life (100 Poison Damage, 20 Life)--->Small Charm
    290 Poison (Great for PvP Fights)--->Small Charm
    Mara's Kaleidoscope Amulet (+2 To All Skills)--->Amulet
