[GUIDE] ikigai's 100m exp/hr Barb.

  • #21
    I'm currenctly using this build as a shield WW barb.
    Doing it in 10-11 minutes, picking up ilvl 63, gems, tomes and legendaries.
    My route is
    - Core of arreat,
    - Tower of damned 1,
    - Arreat crater 2,
    - Rakkis crossing,
    - Fields of Slaughter,
    - Stonefort ( until keywarden appear )

    I just don't have the survivablility for this, elite/champ packs can kill me way to easily

    Very nice build ! It feels different from normal ww build and its very efficient. Found lots of legendaries doing so :P ! (I actually found 2 blackthornes pieces, and a mempo in like 2 hours !! )

    I seriously wouldn't pick up gems and tomes.
    It just isn't worth the time. Same with keywarden. :P
    And you are missing keep 2. :o

    I'm back running the keep 2, had some bad runs with 29k health so I skipped it, but I tried it again and no problems.
    About to turn my shield WW barb to a classic dualwield WW barb.

    Though, I can agree that the stonefort, gems and tomes it's a waist of time in terms of XP.
    It's just my personal choice, want the gem achivements and keys :P

    This seems amazing. I went from P20 - P39 in 1week with this run. Yes it does require a certain dps, i started out slow, but as i get more gear as i move on. It's faster.

    Following his only picking jewelry and legends tip. I have earned myself 600M in the process. Found 2 Trifects.

    Amazing guide. Thank you

    A couple of improvements I think you can make to ramp the experience way up:

    I really don't agree with skipping out on Rend. Rend (with the increased range rune) should one-shot all non-shielding elites if you have reasonable gear and a Skorn (there's no reason to dual-wield WW unless your gear is completely ridiculous)

    My barb runs with 300% MF and about 120M exp/hr (on average, not high-end) with Leoric's/Hellfire and same on follower, 122k DPS with Weapons Master, 50k health, 400 all res. The spec I use is:
    Bash/Instigation (whatever rune is fine, I like getting more Fury)
    Whirlwind/Hurricane
    Rend/Ravage (I only cast this on elites, it one-shots literally everything that doesn't have shielding)
    Battle Rage/Into the Fray
    Sprint/Run Like The Wind (Marathon is also good but the tornadoes help to keep up Fury)
    War Cry/Charge! (fury regenerator)
    Passives: Weapons Master, Animosity (is that the fury regen +20% one? if not it's whatever that is), Unforgiving

    This works better with 5pc IK (you still use Unforgiving - IK 5pc is buggy and doesn't work as intended 90% of the time but it does stop your Fury from degenerating. Why would your Fury degenerate?)

    I do several different runs that pull about the same exp/hr but I add Keep3 to my runs because it's quite efficient once you know the possible layouts. Also more uptime of 5stack without doing inefficient areas. If you end up having to backtrack it's better to go through town to Keep1 though.

    But Rend/Ravage is much better than Overpower and any other way of killing elites. If you take more than a split second to kill an elite you are wasting time.

    Well, with IK 5 set, you would not need to have fury generating spells like overpower/merciless, my guide is from a perspective of a non-IK 5 set. and why are you still using war cry? xD overpower or merciless assault would bump ur exp rate way up
