I'm trying to move to MP1. My damage is fine. but I am taking a ton of damage. With the War Cry rune, my resists are between 600 and 800, and my armor is around 8000. Health pool is around 60,000. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Off topic, I'm using a Cleave Rupture build which I pretty much came up with. I'm surprised it's not more common, it's a ton of fun. If you landing a killing blow on a mob ( Or multiple mobs ), all the mobs around him explode. Super effective!
The mobs aren't hitting too hard, the problem is that you aren't getting enough health back.
You completely lack Life on Hit and the only source of healing you have is Rend which requires a substantial amount of damage to properly work. Find a weapon and rings with LOH and switch out either Leap or Warcry for Revenge with the provocation rune and find out where you feel safe.
Picking up a defensive sacred shield without crit shouldn't be impossible either.
Definitely get a high resist shield if you can, with good block chance. I don't know what your budget is like, but if you are lucky you can find a really good stormshield in the 300-500k range (I got a 28% block for 250k a while back). Otherwise, a good sacred shield with AR, Strength, and some vitality will help you out a lot.
One other item to try and find is a belt with life leech. While your damage isn't quite high enough yet to take full advantage, as you scale your dps that extra life will be great.
You amulet now is good but not great. If you have the resources, try crafting a few more of those. If you get really lucky you might be able to craft an AR, LoH, Life regen amulet. Given your current health pool, maybe try for a high vitality amulet for now until you get some more vitality on gear (will also make switching shields to one without vitality easier)
At 65k DPS, I'm not sure you'll get much benefit at all out of lifesteal, and with 60k health (your profile says 45.7k?), I don't think you'll get much out of life regen either. Life on Hit, however, should help a lot.
Overall, I agree with Strafir's assessment. Also, I'm not sure Rend is doing you much good as it's really optimized for a high-damage, slow weapon like a 2-hander or at least a mace. Instead, you might look at HotA: Smash / Thunderstrike, or possibly WotB: Insanity or Earthquake to help deal with problem elites.
