ANY UPDATES ON FRENZY VS BASH?

Barbarian
Any new discoveries, revelations, retrospective thoughts on Frenzy vs Bash?
I have scoured all previous posts regarding Frenzy vs Bash.
Basically, it boils down to Maniac vs Punish.
All of the previous threads pretty much say that Bash Punish can achieve higher damage bonus (24% vs 20% is fewer hits).
Are there any merits to Maniac?

no DW maniac? why not?

because theres no positive to it except no knockback. I guess if a barb stacked LoH while doing ubers there would be a benefit. But at the very high end of gear I just dont like frenzy maniac + dw.
thanks.

the reason I ask is because I'm switching from Witching Hour back to Tribal Binding.
And, I'm deciding between +14 frenzy vs +14 bash.

I have massive stacked AS (every slot that's possible has 9AS - escept boots and belt)
Ditching a WH would be the biggest mistake of your D3 life.

I need it for the 2pc IK bonus and I'm a bit squishy.

No!
I love the AS
It depends. Frenzy is better in co-op games if you are running with a CM/WW since knocking enemies around forces them to wind back up again. For single play, I would say that Bash is better.

I agree with this, although I still use Bash - Punish in co-op because the damage buff is so good. I try to position myself so that I won't knock-back elites out of the Slow Time bubble, but it's always a problem.

So let me get this straight, you want to switch your WH for an IK belt, but don't want to switch your Tals for IK because you want to keep the AS...

You realize you would be losing the exact same amount of IAS on the belt as you would be on the armor. Also you more than likely would stand to lose a lot more dps switching the belt, vs gaining a lot of dps by using IK armor then you get the 2 IK AR bonus.

Are you wanting to do the belt for the LS?
