Hypothetically if one would want to go one handed berserk, would there be a mastery that would be better then another?
Atm it stands between swords and maces. Seeing as I got mostly swords and 2 good maces...
I've got a baranar's star wich would be quite awesome but I've also got a cursed ataghan wich would turn in to a fucked up good weapon when purified.

I know that a 2 hander would probably be more suited for berserk but I can always switch to that if my one handed dream doesnt turn out the way I want.

But I see some benefits with trying one handed such as lower str req on items.....okey its the only one I can think of but still...I kinda think a one hander+shield look wicked awesomly cool on a barb so I'm trying to explore the possibilitys :P

I think swords are better for you-
Try and get yourself a Djinn Slayer - gives you some good bonuses, or Azurewrath if you can get one. Or ofc the Sword of the Wanderer is really nice :P

Berserk would be a good secondary attack for your conc barb, as they do synergize I believe

Yeah I went with the sword, and I actually got the Djinn Slayer sword waiting for me and I also got the cursed ataghan so I can get that sword of the wanderer when/if I reach hell :P

I went mace... Man was that fail. I'm probably going to remake. Not that it matters too much since i only have like 2 pts into mace mastery, but I'm going to continue rolling it to see if 2hander berserk is viable

if using beserk why not azure wrath, its got sanctuary on equip which has a fair amount of magic pierce ifirc. or holy craft armor/wep may have it as well

Best bet is Sword for Eth-rare Colossus Blade or Axe of Eth-rare Berserker Axe. Colossus Blade should provide more leech (if the Str ED bonus applies the same for 1h & 2h usage)

Berserk still works off your weapon damage, so you'll be severely gimping yourself using Azurewrath. Or even using Azurewrath over 1h Grandfather.

Biggest issue I've found with Berserk is that it's just extremely slow. The fastest you can attack with it is 9 FPA, which is a far cry from Whirlwinds 4fpa or Frenzy/DS 5fpa.
