Balanced Barb In Need of some DPS Upgrades

  • #1
    just wondering what might be the first place to start to add some more DPS. I can farm MP5 and 6, but it starts taking too long to kill stuff after that.

    An axe or mace in main hand, try looking @ echoing fury with low fear
    edit: try swapping LOH for %LL on your weapons, you will notice a great improvement. It's gonna get costly though...

    actually think u could get quite abit of dps by downgrading ur necklace (not downgrade downgrade just in the str department) try looking at somth without loh (at ur dps I think transitioning into life steal is better aswell) and u can get 8% crit and crit dmg with str plus maybe some dmg relatively cheap

    This.

    Move the BK Mighty to off hand, get an Axe or Mace MH. (extra 10% CC from passive) If you can, get one with Crit Dam and a socket. (expensive, I know)

    Thx, anyone see the extra 12% movement speed being a necessary evil... b/c the lacuni prowlers are mad expensive if u get them with 4.5cc and strn. Also, contemplated trading someone for a tyearls might with similar stats as my IK instead of changing bracers. -thoughts?

    Str/Vit/RA pants with 2 sockets might bump up your Str a significant amount as well, more Str is always good for damage.

    Nah don't swap your chest. The movement speed is a must when farming low mp imo. Don't really need the cc when farming low mp if you have enough on the rest of your gear. Just get an axe with 950+dps, 80%+cdm and socket. Attack speed is nerfed to the ground compared to early days of the game.

    edit: also check out rings and amu's with high average damage, this is the OP stat imo

    IAS is hardly "nerfed into the ground"

    Its just not the single one best stat to boost DPS anymore, lol. IAS is a very powerful stat still. (actually, a noticeable amount of your DPS is due to IAS.....)

    Ok mayb i overstated it a bit. I mean i prefer CC, AVDM and CDM over IAS anyday...

    Thought about changing IK helm for a Andys with crit/str/socket for Some added IAS b/c i think i saw 8% more gave me about 5k dps... ill look for a good one b4 making that move.

    Another question I had b/c ultimately this is an Item based game MF is still somewhat important. What is the Max Mf # i need B4 5 stacks to have the max which is 300?

    NV passes the max MF cap, so you can have 375% mf when having 5NV on mp0

    375% w/ NV 400% w/follower I believe.

    And yeah, an Andy's can raise your DPS up as well, I have an IK and Mempo and a Tal Rasha, all really good rolls, and my Andy's is still the top of the heap for DPS. (plus I love the look of it ;p)

    Personally, I like the IK, but I understand why you dont dig it.

    For me, based solely off aesthetics;

    Andy's
    Mempo
    Archon
    IK
    Helm of Command
    Tal Rasha
