Gear Advise for WW buld

  • #1
    OK Gems aside..I know I need to get better gems. But what other gear advise do you all suggest I get. Not working with a lot of gold...around 45mil. I have tryed farming MP5 and seems to do fine, but I still wanna key farm and do other things also.

    Hook me up with some pro advise.

    Swapping you main and off-hand weapons will provide an immediate DPS increase to your tornadoes since they rely on main-hand damage range and don't care about the off-hand damage range. It will also fear mobs a lot less for a similar reason which makes it a lot easier to keep them in your tornadoes.

    Random thoughts:

    I notice you are currently running 4 IK items, so you could swap one and still keep the bonus if you wanted to. The best candidate would be to swap the belt for a Witching Hour if you can afford that. EDIT: You'd probably want to get a lifesteal weapon if you did this, though Bloodthirst alone is probably enough if you aren't farming high MP.

    Don't worry about faster attack speed on your mace imho unless you are really trying to optimize for a specific breakpoint and have put in the research to do so. Even then, it's not recommended because of the main-hand damage range being so important, and a high damage-range weapon with other good affixes and IAS is insanely expensive.

    Your health is super low, assuming you want to do anything approaching high MP. Aim for 40k+. Your crit chance is also really low which is probably making it hard to keep ToC going.

    Beyond that, I'd recommend reading this thread which has most of my advice in it already including what to focus on in each slot. If you have any specific questions after that, feel free to ask.

    replace your head piece with a mempo with either pick up range or armor

    go craft an ammy, probably any one will be better than what you have

    maybe use a skorn??? I am using it and it seem like I am killing a lot faster with a skorn than dw a mace/ef. No leech skorn is fairly cheap.

    While this might be a reasonable idea for other classes (or one very specific Barb build posted recently), it is not great advice for a budget WW Barb in my opinion. His crit chance already isn't that high, so ToC would probably become a lot more difficult to maintain. Also, the attack speed bonus wouldn't help his tornado damage at all without changing at least one other piece of gear in order to hit the next breakpoint, so he'd lose true DPS in the process even if he gained paper DPS.

    I do agree, however, about the amulet (and bracers/shoulders too for that matter). I also agree that Skorn makes for a cheaper build overall, so that is a strong option at lower gear levels.

    50% is not low (32 from items and 15 from passive, 3 from scoundrel). The crit he lost in the helm will be replaced by the crit he get from the ammy. He can easily craft one with 6 crit or buy one really cheap. The extra IAS will help keep his fury up.

    Life is awfully low too, replace the head gem with a purple gem.
