So this inferno build is pretty amazing...

    Invul. packs. Lots of RDD packs on spiral level on the road to spider boss and azmodan. Melee packs look pritty easy, especially if they do molten and arcane, frost stuff. Like you are becoming molten lord by your own. But if its kiting heavy hitting pack, like self buffing shamans (goat peaple). Or something trapping you with wall in narrow room, you pritty much skrewed. I blame lack of self heal, my tanky build had. In some cases i tear packs apart, in others, its a repair bill fest, when you die fast, getting cought into CC or mob crowd. So its rather intresting, if i throw a bit of LOH into it, like one 400 loh stone into Offhand and try it with dualwield. I see you have lots of LOH from your old wirlwind build, i am missing that much, just rerolled, build up some crit, so crit and dps part is good, now its all survival against hard shoot-kite packs, who wont chase you around with your tornado )

    Sorry for bad english, my second language.

    Those goat shaman are indeed really frustrating and can be hard to deal with. They do insane damage when they buff each other. If they are giving you that much trouble then it's probably best to just farm the elite packs in the rest of the act then skip them and go right to Cydaea. Life on hit can help since it works off the tornado damage. The only other tip I can give you is to be patient and try to lure them into your tornadoes as much as you can.

    Another 2 cents. I bought 700 dps 700 LOH 1h with a socket for 100k recently. And rised my LOH to 1110 with dualwielding, this dropped my paper DPS by around 10k to 32 something unbuffed. But gave me a way to survive.
    With LOH in this build it became smoother and doable, so i think LOH here is a must. Especially with Duals, since u hit faster, get more HP back kiting and so on.

    So yeah, thank you, Hoffer, for that amazing build.

    Yeah life on hit is great if your dps is on the lower side. Life steal actually starts to become really good at 40k+ unbuffed dps. I have 0 life on hit around 6% life steal on my gear and it's basically all I need.

    For those interested in seeing this build in action, check out the recording I made on my stream:
    http://www.twitch.tv/hoffer1955/b/323510256

    It's about 90% of a full Act 3 clear. The Stonefort area in the beginning was cut out since I was messing around with the video settings. If you're easily offended by language, maybe don't watch it. I'm not 100% sure what me and my buddy were talking about via Skype while I was recording this, so it is possible it is not suitable for all ages. You've been warned.

    I've been getting a bit bored with slow 2 handed build so i have decided to give this one a go, i was a bit put off by these builds since they used WW, and you had to mess with you move key as well.

    Been fishing around the AH for 2 weapons 850dps ,700LoH and socket, would be nice with close to 1500 LoH and close to 200% crit dmg just from the weapons alone :)

    -----EDIT------

    Got my weapons now, played around with this build for an hour, wow.... i haven't had this much fun in weeks with my barbarian, such fast pace compared to a 0.9 2 hander with cleave :)

    Great work coming up with this build, i owe you big time :Thumbs Up:

    Do you guys know if Seismic Slam with dual wielding relies on both MH and OH DPS?
    If so is it alternating style like Whirlwind?

    I know the Sprint Tornadoes go just off the MH damage numbers. Using the Sprint + WW build, my OH was just a stat stick with low DPS and it didn't matter since Tornadoes did most of the damage.
    However, switching to Bash + SS as the major damage dealer now, I think I might need the better OH and makeup for missing stats elsewhere.

    SS alterantes between main hand and offhand.

    Equipt a crappy weapon from act 1 normal as offhand and you will see the difference.

    Bought myself a 2hander. This build still works pretty well without a dual wield setup. I'm still debating whether it's the "best" 2hander build, but it's definitely viable and can be pretty fun.

    Hoffer,

    GREAT BUILD. I sign-up to these forums specifically to tell you that you renewed my faith in barbarians. Thank you.

    One change I made is to replace WotB with Furious Charge (as discussed before) but with Dreadnaught rune. I am currently running this in A2 with no LoH or LL and havin a fine time. If i find some decent LoH stuff I may switch into that and maybe change FC-Dreadnaught... still unsure.

    To anyone who hasn't tried this build, do it now!
