The main reason for this topic is to see what everyone opinion on having int on a support barb.
I am currently gearing a support barb in between my time running 90+ solo GR's on my wizard. The main reason for this is the group of players i play with lack a support barb and I thought it would be a good idea.
I played support barb 3 seasons ago and have a good understanding of the current support build and items but of course like anyone I decided to check out the leaderboards to see what the best barbs had been running. To my surprise the top support barb (EU) actually had alot of int on his items. I'm assuming this is for the all resist but i was curious if this was more beneficial than just having strength on items and i thought this would be a good topic to raise with the community to gauge opinions.
So what are your thoughts on support barbs?
TL;DR : Gearing support barb, checked leaderboards, seen top barb had int on aot of gear, want to know what people think of having alot of int on support barb.

We've had this discussion before. You can throw in the "perfect gg gear" in D3Planner and you'll see that in the long run, dex/str is better. You get enough all res from diamonds and all res on gear, but if you switch all your gear to int then you lack a ton of armor.
Without seeing the barb's profile, my guess is that he has a wizard for key farming (honestly - who hasn't, wizards are just sooooooo freaking fast) and found superb support items on his wizard... therefore int rolls. Having a few pieces here or there also doesn't matter. But in general, you want dex/str on support classes.
As I've said, it has been discussed before on here, including the math; I think in season 7 or so, but I don't know in which subforum so I don't even know where to start searching for it.
