    Hello, here is my profile
    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/MadawC-1349/hero/5195144

    I need help upgrading my barb, i am so confuse now, seems theres not much i can do with my 100m left in my bank. everything items i try to get upgraded cost over 200m. What should i do? here is my finding

    I disgarded warcry since i can do mp8 farming with no problem, just die maybe for arcane mobs. i have a view questions

    1)what can i do to increase my barb dps but still keep the same life steal?
    2)how is my skils so far? I tried dumping WOTB, however i cannot survive when there are ice mobs. Should i keep rend or switch it to overpower?

    What do you guys think? I have invested 300m on all the current gear, i have 100m left.
    I crafted 30 wrist last night, none of them were better than the current one :(.
    next time i do 60 amulet lol.

    Thanks for the input.

    I'd probably drop the Ice Climbers for Zunimassa's. That will get you the 12% run speed you are missing plus like an 8% dps increase from the poison damage (less in reality since you'll lose some strength).

    I personally think Mempos are overrated for the cost. Consider an IK helm instead which will give you some crit and less damage taken in melee.

    If you can afford it, consider off-handing a lifesteal Echoing Fury. This would let you drop your belt for a Witching Hour as well as increase your DPS quite a lot I think.

    The above is probably worth running through a calculator such as d3rawr.com/d (check tDPS there) to verify before you commit though.

    EDIT:

    On the second question, I'd say Rend + HotA is probably redundant outside of Ubers. Use HotA if killing elites, or Rend if farming white mobs (preferably with a lifesteal Skorn). If you are still having survivability issue and want to keep the ruby in your helm, you could use the reflect damage Overpower rune, or bash for initial fury if not.

    Also, try Brawler instead of Unforgiving for a large DPS increase, which will also increase health stolen.
    ...and if you disagree with me, you're probably <insert random ad hominem attack here>.
