The Ultimate Ww Axe Baba Guide
First of all, this build isn't meant as specific BvB or anti-caster, but with
this build you try to kill as many different chars as you can. In this guide,
there isn't mentioned poor man's equip, simply because your baba is going to suq
Strength: Enough to wear equip (equip is mentioned later in guide)
Dex: Enough for full block (75%) with storm.
Energy: Base, really?
Pre-req: (Put 1 point in these skills)
Increased speed (pre-requires increased stamina)
I've pointed some optioned here, ofcourse it's your own choice what you r going
HelmEth glitched arreat's socketed 40/15 (ias/max)|Arreat's socketed 'Jah'
Some nice defense, dex & str bonus, ar bonus, resand fhr
Mods of arreat's I listed before, less defense then glitched ones, jah increases
max life 5%
Only choice, wear this in combination with angelic rings.
Rings2x angelic|angelic + raven frost
+20 life and when you wear these in combination with angelic amu, it gives
massive ar and 75+ life to amu.
Use 1 raven frost for cbf vs chars who use cold as main skill. Take one with
+240 ar so that your ar ist still ok.
ArmorEnigma dusk|Enigma mp
I personally prefer dusk because it looks cooler and has more defense.
this needs less strength.
Weapon(s)eBoTD Ba +400% + Doom rw ba
Best weapon in the game, no explanation needed.
Still decent dmg, the cold aura slows enemys.
Shield Stormshield socketed 40/15 (ed/max)|4 topaz shield
Use this were you need block: bowzons, wwbabas, wwsin (not always necessary)
Use this vs fohers.
15% dr, 10% fhr, massive vit: just what you need!
20% light adsorb, str + dex bonus, adds some elemental dmg : us this vs chars
who use lightning as main skill (trapper, light sorc, fohers, javazons)
10% Open wounds, 15% Cb, Ds : nothing beats this.
Huge poison res, str & vit bonus, 20% fhr : use this vs novamancers.
GlovesSteelrends +55%|Dracul's grasp
Nice %ed, str bonus, 10% Cb : nothing beats this
15% Open wounds, str bonus (Life tab doesn't work with ww)
Bo weapons(on switch)2*Cta +3 Bo|2* 3 wc weapons
Gives 2 extra skills from 2 cta's, using 6 bo cta is useless since max on baba
is 3. Disadvantage: Less skills to shout then with wc weapons.
2x 3 extra warcry skills.
We all know we we use these, 3 max 20 ar 20 life. Legit players can use some
Use these 'till you have full res or come close to full res.
Note: I personally don't like wc skillers, since they don't give ar or max dmg,
but ofcourse it's your own choice.
Put on your thundergods, and perhaps some wisps, use BoTD+ Doom. Wait 'till the
sorc starts to cast, lightning is a rather slow attack so while she's casting
tele/ww. If she's not using full block, she should be death in 1 or 2 hits. If
she's using full block, just have some patience and kill her in 3 or 4 hits.
Make sure you make small whirlwinds, if you wwing the hole map around she's
going to kill u easily.
This can be a very hard duel. Put on your ravenfrost for the 20 sorb + cbf. Try
to namelock her and tele/ww, this can look very easy but it isn't, especially
when the sorc telespams/orb.
This depends on how good the sorc can duel. If she's smart she'll never come
into your screen so that you can't namelock her. It's your job to make sure she
does come into your screen, you can namelock her, tele and ww. Same as with
lightning sorc without full block she should be death in 1 or 2 hits. When she
does she's death in 3 or 4 hits. Make sure you make small whirlwinds, if you
wwing the hole map around she's going to kill u easily.
This also depends on how good the sorc can duel, and how fast she is. Put first
on a raven frost, 20% sorb, cbf. Normally she casts blizzard on herself, and
hope you tele to her, she telees away and you are hit by the blizzard. The only
thing u can do is be faster then her. This can become a hard duel when she's
telespamming, but if you r fast enough, this shouldn't be a problem for u.
Put on thundergods and your 160% lightning res shield perhaps a wisp if you r
dueling on hell difficulty. This is a very lame way to kill him, but in my
opinion the only way to kill a foher. If he's wearing exile it can take a while
before he's death.
Put on your BoTD + doom rw ba and start wwing away from him. If the smiter is
also wearing doom rw this can be a hard duel, just hope he don't have the lucky
to cast life tab, if he does your a death baba.
Hammer pala means death to baba in 90% of the cases. If the hammer pala has a
decent equip and a experienced dueler, u can never kill him. This is how I try
to kill them: if he just stands there, casting hammer waiting for u to tele/ww
into the hammers, don't do it! if u do, your a death baba. Wait 'till he tele's
to you fast ww on him, and tele away, wait again 'till he tele's to you. It's a
lame way of dueling, but the only way you make a chance against them.
You know how it goes, ww, ww, ww, killed. Put on doom rw to slow him a bit.
Same as with zeal, just never stop wwing 'till he's death!
Use storm, tele to her, ww, ww, ww, killed. If she's using knockback it's rather
annoying but you still be able to kill her.
This will be a very hard match, especially with a perfect equiped javazon. Use
thundergods + wisp and BoTD + doom rw. The slow aura from doom rw heps alot, but
it won't be a garanty u'll win. Start wwing and never stop, it depends on how
good the ama is wether you'll win or lose.
This can be medium/hard, if the necro is telespamming/casting it's hard, if the
necro has maxed bone shield + full block, you make no chance. Try to get him in
your screen, namelock, tele/ww. Hopefully your lucky and with some nice hits +
luck you'll be able to kill him.
Pretty easy since he has to come in your screen to cast nova. First put on
sandstorms (+70% poison res) and perhaps venom grips (30% poison res, +5 to max
poison res). Namelock tele/ww, if he's a good dueler, you'll have to be careful
but normally you'll win.
I've never beaten by a ww sin, never will be. They are shieldless and have less
defense, you can wear BoTD+storm or BoTD+doom rw, you'll both win the duel.
This can be a hard match or an easy, depends on how do you want to play it. You
can put on 2 wisps + thundergods, pretty lame I think but u defenitly win. You
also can put on only 1 sorb item, wich makes it very hard for you to win,
especially when the trapper is the whole time mind blasting you. It all depends
on your style of dueling.
This depends on how good the druid can duel. This is how I try to kill them:
wait for him to come into your screen, never tele into the way where he casted
tornado's. You can try to kill the oak (wich makes you a oakkiller ) or you can
just ww, ww, ww on the druid. If he tele's away again, just tele to him again (in
the other way from were he's casting tornado's.) Make short ww's, so that he
can't cast to much tornado's while you do your ww.
It's same as with zealer and charger, never stop wwing 'till he's death. They
absolutly have no chance against u.
As you see, this dueling can be anything. I pointed a easy mark vs non shield
users. The medium is for decent baba's like me, and hard is if u duel vs
specific BvB's. The only thing u can do vs other ww baba's is put on your storm
and maybe a bit lame but should also be mentioned: use enchant from demon limb.
