2hand WW barb speed build, 80+m/hour 6-7min clears

  • #41
    Here's a video of me doing a standard Alkaizer run with a variant of this build in 6:45, netting 8mil XP

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXPHVIorv4g&feature=plcp

    That comes out to a little over 71m XP/hour. To get to 80m XP/hour you would need to shave the run time down 15-30 seconds and end up with 8.5mil XP. I think this is doable, but probably not consistently. My personal average is pretty close to 70, but I've been tracking it manually. I'm going to start using that tool you posted since it will be more accurate. Thanks for making that.

    BTW here is the variant I use: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#chXSUR!ZYh!bZYZZY

    well i was using OP's build without any modifications and this is "data.txt":
    0:05:46 5,3
    0:06:36 8,46000000000001
    0:06:14 6,62
    0:07:18 9,1
    0:05:38 6,6
    0:06:07 6,7
    0:06:47 8,6
    0:07:23 8,48
    0:07:27 7,82
    0:06:21 6,90000000000001

    due to statistics my average for now is 68,2mil XP/h and fastest run 5:46 O_O
    but still top score was like 76,5 - cannot get close to 80+

    tommorow im gonna release 1.0.2 version of this tool with more cool features, like putting paragon lvl and handling lvl ups, and then making statistics: "how much time it takes to paragon 100 with average/current speed" or "how much time it takes to next paragon with average/current speed"

    Interesting thread. I was looking for better alternatives.

    Few thoughts as for ops build. I don't think charge helps. From my tests, I found that charge animation lasts so long (the animation when charge finishes and barb does this weird pose, that lasts like 1s). You lose pretty much whole benifit of gaining speed while charging. It is like dh vault, but it froze character for one second after each use of the skill. It doesn't make me faster at all vs just using whirlwind.

    I found that the key to efficient build, that can pull even 100m exp/h is to kill elites absolutely instantly. They should never take more than one hit to kill (by hit it can be combo with overpower, leap or ground stomp, just one short

    If you manage to get enough damage to do this, it is possible to break even 100 million per hour. But requires good gear, and very specific gear.
    For example increasing damage, via increasing crit bonus, is not always the case. At certain point, if hits crit, it alredy does the job. Having more powerful crits doesn't increase run speed. Because hits that don't crit, slow us down. Increasing crit chance helps. But you can't get it to 100%, so there will be always a random factor, that that one elite out of 3, will not get critically hit and takes much less damage than everything else.
    Imo the direction should be to work on out minimal possible damage, to make it be strong enough. Not inflating dps by getting ridiculous amounts of crit bonus (what pretty much is done by skorn).

    For reference, this is nice thread and build:

    The thing about Charge is that it doesn't compete with WW, it does compete with Bash/instigation. And while it's debatable if it is faster or not than WW, I'm pretty sure it's faster than Bash ;).

    Charge allows you to get your rage bulb instantly filled, while killing 5-10 mobs and moving to the end of the run. Imho it's the best addition to the build. Yes, WW is the main weapon in your arsenal. But when you are low on rage, if you WW, you kill the mobs and probably get lower rage and you can't sprint after that group. If you charge through them, you fill your rage, and sprint to the next group of monsters.

    I order to shave the last time off, and reach 80m+ xp per hour, you would need to dual wield and with a mighty weapon in main hand. That way you can have 100% uptime on wotb (20% movement speed) Its imposible with a Skorn. What your doing now is the max performance of two handing barbs. Consider to dual wield if you want to reach the magic 80m,

    Toss in wotb instead of leap depending on your dps. Trash should should die to your tornados.
    or
    Wotb instead of leap and overpower with momentum instead of rend.
    or
    Wotb instead of rend, and change furious charge run to stamina.

    There is many options. Pick the one that suits your needs best. Wotb needs 100% uptime. The movement speed it grants is essential for the efficiency.

    my 5 cent.

    with dualwield u got much lower weapondmg, therefore lower burst and u cannot even oneshot elites on mp0 (which i found crucial in crossing 80m/h point), and with mighty weapon dmg is even more limited so it takes even longer time than this 20% ms is able to make up for
  • #48
    Since your play low mp levels, you dont need higher weapon dmg, you dont need higher burst. Its all about speed. Dual wield gives you that speed. Take a decent mighty weapon in your main hand an some medium echoing offhand. Play correctly with that weapon setup and i guarantee you that you xp per hour increases by 10 mill. Dont fool yourself with tooltip dps, its increadible missleading.

    Dual wield mp1 with 100% uptime on wotb and your above 80m xp per hour.

    The problem for many of us is that our DPS is too high to maintain WOTB below MP 4, yet it takes more than a couple of passes to kill elites at this level and thus efficiency is lost.

    Your problem is because you play standard ww build on mp1... You need to rethink your build and use the extra fury generators the game offer. Furiois charge with stamina, overpower with momentum. Use the tools you have avaible and you will see your problems solved and your xp gain go up.

    No, my standard whirlwind build is 300k buffed dps, not counting my Tyrael's 14% to demons bonus. I farm MP0 and drop WOTB and use Charge with Animosity and Unforgiving.
  • #52
    Means your losing out on 20% movement speed. Can alllmoost be translated into you losing 20% xp gain.

    It means I'm losing out on a skill slot if wrath is always on cool down, but only up for 15-30 seconds.
  • #54
    Running without wotb has a price. That price is lost efficiency.

    Its more than posible to run mp1 with full uptime on wotb. I know first hand, since i did it for 44 paragon levels myself. WW with furious charge(stamina) and/or overpower(momentum) Animosity, unforgiven (both passives) and a templar.

    Whatever you want to do it or not, is your choice. Just saying not doing it have its price. Lost efficiency.

    what's ur average farming speed then? gimme concretes
    how much dps u had when u were farming on mp1 with 100% uptime?

    if u run on low mp u lose uptime
    if u run on higher mp u lose clearing speed

    either way it has it's drawbacks
  • #56

    what's ur average farming speed then?


    82m xp /hour. Sometimes 86m others 77m. Id say an average would be around 82m xp per hour.
