Unfortunately it seems that barbarians don't stand out as much as they used to,
in terms of how hard they hit, being able to stun, how much they do with crits.
Of course repbarbs get the nice bonuses with certain skills and with quests you
can add more hit and dam, but still.
Possibly another kind of rep, as well as barbaric ways, a rep for weapons. I
hope this makes sense but a skill that you cannot train, but slowly goes up the
more you use and axe or the more you use a bludgeon, it would basically give
you some slight bonuses using the weapon in which you are super skilled in.
Just an idea..
Also from what I can see, barbarians aren't meant to be heavily armored
warriors, so how about some MINOR bonuses to barbs who wear armors made of
lighter materials or have free slots possibly 2dex/free slot, this would only
be a noticeable affect mainly for newbies because the advantages of wearing
more/heavier armor would be much greater with normal armors.
Just a couple ideas, barb is still a very good guild and it definitely doesn't
need a real up tune, just something different to make it stand out liek it once
