What works for you? Builds!!!!

    How is everyone? awesome!
    Now I've heard and seen alot of talk about some awesome Barbarian builds. This thread is basically a discussion of what fellow inferno-ers use in regards to builds. Don't hesitate to link your build!

    Here's my Inferno build:
    http://us.battle.net...XiSP!aZY!ccaaaZ
    This is my build I've been using for act 1 Inferno. I'm yet to start act 2, I have beaten act 1 with relative ease with this build.
    I like to follow the "kill them before taking any damage" approach, so far it's working quite well! As you can see I do not have any healing abilities, have no fear! I use the pound of flesh passive and it works bloody briliantly. I don't have much trouble with elites or bosses (ofcourse I can expect a death or two).
    If there were a way I could Link my gear I would.

    Anyway, post your builds and thoughts on abilities that are useful for inferno!

    EDIT: Barbarians Only!
    Bashiok - Blizzard Representative - 08/01/2011 -"So how many skill combinations are there now? Well taking into account 6 active skills, all the rune combinations, and 3 passives we currently expect each class to have roughly 2,285,814,795,264 different build combinations."

    doing kulle/belial runs atm (5 NV) in a group of 3-4 players using this build: http://eu.battle.net...XPVR!bYc!acaZcZ

    just switched to that build last week after reading this other great thread (barb inferno guide etc.). i swapped seismic slam & ground stomp out and revenge & ignore pain in, also switched rune of leap from death from above to iron impact. since surviving in act 2 is the biggest issue (esp. while in a group), those changes helped me a lot. right now i can mostly stand in large groups and spam revenge at full rage and therefore "tank" most of the monsters so our glasscannons can dps 'em down without trouble. you basically need to rotate defensive cds. only lacking a bit of dps right now, but the time will come i will have a 900+ 1h..maybe i will swap ignore pain for battle rage and nerves of steel for bloodthirst, we'll see..

    I've been using this in Act 1 and Act 2 inferno as a fairly new level 60 with average gear with success.

    Merciless Assault rune never seems to be mentioned on the forums but in my opinion is one of the best runes for barbarian giving you the ability to do great damage with crowd control to large groups of monsters, also it is sooooooo fun to use XD

    I've come to prefer the death from above rune for leap over the armour one as gaining an extra cc/interrupt is better than one more second of damage reduction.

    My other abilities seem pretty standard from what I've seen on the forums.

    I would like to know, when thrown axe from side arm frenzy hits something, does "life on hit" triggers and you gain life?

    I'm not 100% sure but I don't think so. But the life on hit from frenzy is better than from cleave and I need some sort of aoe to burn down packs faster.

    Yeah lot's or barbs using side arm, but i prefer lightning hit to stun, that works even on elites and very helpful.

    It's just a matter of preference, I don't have any need for the stun so sidearm is much better for me. If you feel that you need that stun you should use it. As a barb my dps isn't that high so everything helps, im running around with 20kdps with that build in act 3 and it works pretty well for me.

    I tried your build today but i got wrecked from every champ pack in the cavern of frost

    I don't get how you can survive against champs without leaparmor buff, ignore pain and only 2 defensive passives. You have like 2000 loh?

    my stats in your build (full shouted and buffed with enchantress)
    0 loh
    850 resi
    9300 armor
    44k hp
    34% block
    -20% melee dmg
    25k dps

    My Act2 farm build (is basically my act2 progress build with offensive passives): http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#WgRVkP!bZY!abbccZ
    I like this build and played this build in act1+2 where it rocks. It sucks balls in act3. I just dont like Furious Charge as a Skill and seeing it being required in act3 makes me just dislike act3 :(

    You can do act 3 without charge, but I would recommend picking up leap with the armor buff if you don't want charge.

    I wanted to try something a little out of the box with my barbarian and I've been running solo through Act 1 and Act 2 in inferno with the following build. My gear isn't the best and I can tell I'm gonna need to make some changes or gearing up to make it much further.
