I always liked seeing berserkers soloing all kinds of bosses and wanted one for myself. So after 8hours I got mine up to lvl 50, but now I dont know what I should do. I wanna a dps build cuz I like seeing the big crits :D but I dont know what stats I should look for or gear. So if there is someone that has some experience with the class and could teach me the ways ^^. Also I would like to know what berserkers are capable of doing, solo and in a group. Thanks

The berserker is a very viable class. He can both deal high dps, aoe, and tank. Although his tanking abilities are not as good as Crusader or Monk, with a good healer and good gear you can pretty much tank the same stuff as those more tanky classes.

I suppose, at the moment, for dpsing Executioner's Axe is the best weapon (if you ignore the legendary sword, which is a pain to get).

For tanking: I wouldn't go with 1hand + shield in the current build, as it is simply too weak to hold aggro properly. Instead, get the titan spear, and the tanky armor that drops in Whitepine.

I cannot remember every specific item to get, but you can go to the Database part of the forum and look them up in the Whitepine droplist.

I am trying to get hold of some of the "damage items", my goal set is;Helm of the bull, Hulking Snow Bear Head, Bloodsoaked Gauntlets and Knight's Breastplate. Also what should I look for on my souls? I am currently using on offensive crit chance, crit damage and ArP. Thank you so much for the help :D

If you want high numbers only you should change knights breastplate to furious cuirass. 2xap + cdmg/str/crate (i.e. 2xap + cdmg), those are best souls for zerker. (Flamebringer makes gameplay a little more interesting since it adds new active skill which deals pretty high dmg (and its polearm, not sword lol)).

2x ap? Are there souls that give two of the same stats? So Ap+critdmg/str and crate? what is that? Also if I am playing solo, going all damage wouldn't I die kinda fast? Thanks for the tips :D
