Detailed video guides for farming inferno as a solo barbarian - acts 1, 2, and 3

  • #1
    Hello,

    A lot of people are having difficulty farming solo as a barbarian, and this is partly because the barbarian class is more gear dependent than other classes. But it's also because the game currently favors a narrow range of builds for barbarian that may not be intuitive to a lot of people. I've been quite successful farming on my own so I've made this series of videos to show you how I do it. The videos are quite long and detailed so look elsewhere if that bothers you.

    Dude, what the hell.
    I have 38k hp, 8k damage, and 450 resist all and mobs hit me for TWICE THAT MUCH. The hammer ones, which you actually STOOD AND TANKED instead of moving away, basically one shot me if I don't move from they're special attack.

    Either my Barb is bugged, or that is Hell, and not Inferno.
    Because my stats are better then what you've shown, Almost the same build (Berserker instead of Charge), and I can never dream of taking so much damage.

    What is the deal with the Sidearm Rune for Frenzy? I see it being used by every Barb now, so I figure there must be a reason. Does it proc additional life on hit effects or something?
  • #6
    could you please post pic of your gear ?
  • #7
    @Lylz

    It provides AOE dmg for this single Revenge builds ;)
  • #8
    so the gist is: stack a lot of tanky stuff and wait till tyrael kills mobs...
    that plain SUCKS

    You likely have different passives than I do, or perhaps a different rune on War Cry. I'm sorry about the mixup with my build listing, it's fixed now.

    I can assure you this is inferno, and you can check by looking at the hp of the mobs. The defensive passives make a huge difference!

    I like your videos. Keep em coming!

    Good stuff for sure, gives a little hope to the other barbs out there to show that farming inferno can be done. Just gotta farm the right gears.
  • #12
    These videos are great, thank you. I have Act I down to where I can just steam roll everything, but tried Act II and get absolutely destroyed... Definitely will try this build with more vit and less str to get Act II down.
  • #13
    My alt is 60 barb, and axe throw proc on frenzy seems so much more useful for general purpose.
    The strong must rule if we are to survive.
  • #14
    Hey, looks good. I have a question. When im going for the frenzy / sidearm build, with a weapon that has life on hit - would you then recommend rings with Life on hit, or increased attack speed (both combination with all res btw).

    Keep em coming!

    Would be nice to see the stats/gear etc... as well, i watched some your act 2 video, its a shame you don't start them out with a quick hover above your items and stats.

    Zrave,

    I notice that you have 2 might skills bound to keys/mouse. How did you bind Revenge to your right mouse button? I go into options/settings/key bindings and it won't seem to let me do what you have done.

    It also won't let me select 2 might skills. It only lets me select 1 might skill. What am I missing?

    You'll want to go into options > gameplay and select "elective mode." It's Blizzard's way of trolling us and almost nobody figures this out without being told.
    ...and if you disagree with me, you're probably <insert random ad hominem attack here>.

    how much MF did you have at killing belial?
    I killed him with 5 stacks couple of times now, with about 20 base mf....and get only 2-3 yellows....I saw u got 5 of them lol
  • #20
    Actually you can kill Belial with as much MF as you want once he's in Phase 3 (big one). You can avoid all the damage if done properly. Only thing is it lengthen the fight due to your crappy DPS after switching :D
    He probably switched to MF gear at the end (can't see the video at work) and continued dodging the hits.

    Will watching ASAP ! I'm interested in Act 3 because I run the same setup and can't manage to kill Elites before they blow me up. (46k hp 8.2k armor 850-900resists and 11k dps ... Maybe that was just because of the affixes or I didn't do the Tyrael "bug".)
