    Your items don't make much sense. You have a ton of DPS for a sword and board warrior. Here is what you need to do.

    1. Dump some STR items and get mor Vitality and all-resistance gear. Even if that gear is blue.

    2. Your shield is a piece of shit. You only have 15 percent chance to block. Go out and buy yourself a shield with at least 23 percent chance to block, an an additional +8 or +9 percent chance to block as a stat. If you can get VIT and or all resistance on it then all the better. Even if the shield is blue, it will be better then the one you have.

    3. Your build isn't bad. However dump Cleave for Frenzy (with thre axes rune), and dump battlerage for Warcry. Also get rid of weapons master for superstition.

    Remember. The point of playing Sword and Board is to be very tanky. You obviously want some DPS, but you do not want to gear like you are a pure DPS player. You need high block chance, lots of vitality and resistance. You want to get Dextartity to +100 and no more then that (10 percent chance to dodge, after that it's a waste stat). Then you want to find a balance with STR and Vitality. 40k HP, with 30 percent chance to block, and 800 to all resistance should be a goal over more DPS. Even if your have to drop your DPS from 14k to 8k, if you can meet the above criteria, you will have no issues in act II.

    You're all resis is a little too low, even with your buff. It's almost there. You need 40k plus health, prefer at least 50k though. You need some life on hit. Your dps is good, but you can sacrifice some of it for more survivability.

    Please stop telling everyone they need much more block. Blocking helps but all resis gets much better the more you have of it, the opposite of dimishing returns. Block is good, yes, is it better than vit and all resis or life on hit, NOT at all.

    And i KNOW you don't know what you're talking about mainly because you aren't even suggesting life on hit....

    I can Change weapon and get 8k more Hp
    Can try to get more resistance but will cost alot =D
    I will change some gems to gain more Hp but i still think its kinda strange that normal monsters almost kill me.

    But many say that like 500+ Resistance is enough to atlest kill trash etc on Act2

    But strange is that my friend that do play Monk have 500 Resistance and 49k hp and like 9k dmg and he did manage to complet Act2 in like 6hours. So i dont see way my char shud have so much of a problem to survive when my lowest resistance are 666-872.


    Did change gems and wep did get 48k hp and dmg at 9k
  • #7
    500 resistance? against elites/champion you will become fried chicken on a hot summer afternoon.
  • #8
    @ Constipationnow Yea he did not manage some of the crazy Effect combos but he did kill some Elites actully, And thats way i wounder way i have problems with normal monster when my gear is better then his
  • #9
    my stats are 57k hp,19k dmg,400-500 ress and 10k armor with buffs,700 life on hit,20% block and im doing pretty fine.atm farming 5 stacks NV belial .what u need is more hp,some life on hit and you will be fineish:D
    Edit: ah and my build http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#WSTVPk!VbU!acbcZc
    wrath of the berserk with dmg buff,earthquake and some good attack speed with life on hit will make you really hard to kill,not to mention the revenge and charge skills which helps you out a lot. for the passive i use relentless atm cuz 50%dmg reduction makes a differnce when fighting elites.just try it ,believe me its the most underrated passive of all times:D

    Please stop. All Barbarians that have killed Inferno Diablo focus on getting block percentage as well as Vit and All ressist. Life on Hit is amazing, but many Barbarians, including the guy who did the "1 million challenge" have killed Inferno Diablo without it. This guy wants to progress and not get 1 hit. The reason he is getting 1 hit is because he has no block. He isn't blocking attacks. You can get a 70 all ressist + 9 block, + 23 block 1200 armor blue shield for like 250k on the AH. That will do more for him then 300 life on hit will in act 2. Nobody is saying not to get it.

    You also obviously didn't read what I wrote. As I told him to get more block percentage, ressist and VIT.

    ingame contact: realhoffi#2304

    Working at it =D 1k all resistance now, 42k hp like 7k armor still hard to find a "good" Weapon and shield for a fair price and not like those 5million for a shit item ^^
  • #17
    I dropped Sword n board for act II due to the lacking of DPS and the insane cost of a high dps LoH 1 hand. I used a 1200 DPS 2H'er and cleaned act 2 in just under 2 hours.
  • #18
    You still got that sword? And maybe not useing it and can let me buy it?
  • #19
    Ok, Im going crazy, Sure i dont have a dam LoH weapon and i tested with a 13% shield and a 30% one....No diffrent i still die.

    My Stats now are this https://www.dropbox.com/s/javvik7enb0wegt/Screenshot091.jpg

    And im normaly going with a monk friend so i have over 1k in all
