    Default ultimate rager

    I want to create a character that brings raging to the extreme.

    Spirit Lion Totem Barbarian (Complete Champion) is almost mandatory, for Pounce; Whirling Frenzy (Unearthed Arcana and the SRD) is a Rage variant that grants bonuses generally considered superior to bog-standard Rage.

    Half-Orc Paragon (Unearthed Arcana and the SRD) and Singh Rager (Oriental Adventures) are rarities in that they grant Raging without disallowing Lawful alignment.

    Frenzied Berserker (Complete Warrior), Champion of Gwynharwyf (Book of Exalted Deeds), and Runescarred Berserker (Unapproachable East) are generally the cream of the crop for Prestige Classes that build upon Rage/Frenzy. The first is notorious for requiring you to work with the party developing an off-switch for the Berserker to prevent PvP; the 2nd requires (Exalted) Chaotic Good but adds a Smite attack; the last adds casting, but is notorious for being accidentally impossible to qualify for in 3.5 by RAW, due to requiring a totem lodge Feat from a region that offered it in 3.0, but not 3.5, coupled with a change in allowances for how you could or couldn't qualify for out-of-region Regional Feats. In other words, all of them require some discussion with the DM.

    Bear Warrior (Complete Warrior) used to get a lot of discussion as a good STR-bonus filler, but it fell out of favor as more splatbooks were added.

    My personal favorite is Frostrager, even if it's not the most optimized, it's just cool(pun intended)

    For "rage like ability" you should check out

    Wildrunner's "Primal Scream"
    Fist of the Forest's "Feral Trance"

    could make an interesting combo elf barbarian/wildrunner/fist of the forest/frenzied berserker

    i like the berserker, frenzied berserker, barbarian build so far. stacking rage, frenzy, and berserk. btw i have seen people say frenzy and rage don't stack which confuses me, it says it the writing it does.


    will look into those, especially if i can stack them into this build.

    Yeah for a build like this, you do NOT want Whirling Frenzy, as it explicitly does not stack with other forms of Rage.

    I would go with something like a Half-Elf ex-Undying Way Monk 2/Fighter 2/Spirit Lion Totem Wolf Totem Barbarian 2/Berserk 1/Wildrunner 2/Outcast Champion 3/Fist of the Forest 1/Frostrager 4/Bear Warrior 1/Frenzied Berserker 2

    On your turn you can use Rage, Battle Fury, Primal Scream, Desperate Fury, Feral Trance, Improved Frostrage, Frenzy, and turn into a bear.

    Yes. Battle Fury takes a Standard Action, the rest are Free Actions, except for Desperate Fury, which is more of a reaction; it kicks in when you're at half hit points or less.

    Desperate Fury is a class feature of the Outcast Champion from Races of Destiny. 1/day, when reduced to less than half hp, or when fatigued or exhausted, you get +2 to Str, Dex, and Con for 3+(Con mod) rounds.

    Nothing special, really.
