    the problem i still see with the barb, is that basically every build that relies on 2 offensive passives is a) very fragile or b) lacks sufficient fury support, unless you have items that give you +2 fury gen and that with 270 paragon points to spend. then again its only been a week, so there is stil chance i can further increase survivability by adding some more vit/allres/armor crafting or finding something.
    me im having fun with this build:

    Hey Z. I play Hardcore and obviously those builds are not sufficient for survival. Can you build one for maximum survival and optimum survival and offensive? If you can then thanks.
  • #9
    One thing that I really don't like about Barbarina builds anymore is that the movement speed from Sprint no longer works while casting WW (since the removal of the regular movement speed rune). Do you feel this significantly impacts the playability of the build?

    Lately, I have only been using my Barb for ubers and keyfarm (usually just Act 2 keyfarm, but if I'm in a group I usually just stick it out on my Barb). The build I use is more single-target focused for ubers, but to be honest it actually handles itself decently well in large packs, though I'm considered about the survivability on higher MP.

    "Outdoors" build:

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#WXVRdk!gXY!caZYZb
    I basically leap into/out of trouble with Leap, hold down Frenzy (usually with Shift so I just hit whatever is close, or on the Keywarden if that's what I'm doing) and alternate spamming Overpower/Revenge. Both abliities fullheal me with 3% lifesteal, ~25 pts in life on hit (no life on hit from gear). We usually keyfarm on T2, and my gear is ~120k dps and 700k toughness (unbuffed). With War Cry up and 5x frenzy plus both crit % procs, I think DPS gets up to 270k and toughness 950k, but this is just off the top of my head. Also, both AoE abilites are up almost full time (especially if you Overpower first, because then the AoE crits from Revenge almost instantly resets Overpower).

    I enjoyed it a little bit, but mostly I play my Wizard for farming now. I'm going to test it out on higher Torment (I usually farm T3/T4 on my Wizard, but he is also more geared than my Barb post 2.0).

    Ubers build:

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#WXiRdk!eXV!cbYYZb
    Relatively same deal, trade Iron Impact for Toppling, since you don't have as much damage output. Pick up some passives to increase survivability, I don't always use Tough as Nails (0 thorns damage, but 25% armor is like 2k vs the Vitality=Armor passive gives me 500). Instead I usually take Ruthless if I have the survivability (like a Monk in group with Healing Mantra) so that my damage isn't completely awful.



    Anyway, good luck to all the fellow Barbs, and I appreciate any criticism or if people like what they see in my builds.

    WW is the best!!!<3

    In this first video, how are you maintaining fury? I can see its just going up as you Whirlwind, and that is completely the opposite of how it looks when I whirlwind. The 2 rage/sec passive isn't enough for how well you seem to generate. Also, how are you staying alive? Just 6% LL and good dmg?

    All my WW builds have looked more like your 2nd vid, where I WW for 3 seconds and punch a guy for 5 to get my fury back up.

    There is rune effect for WW that adds rage per hit. I use that with my Lightning Barb

    In his linked build he is using the 1 fury on hit WW rune and the 5 fury on hit Overpower rune. Between those and the 20% increased fury generation plus 2 fury / sec passive, it looks like his fury is relatively sustainable in large groups. Against a solo rare or champion, however, I don't know how sustainable this build would be (certainly not as sustainable as 1.0.8 Tornado/WW was 1v1).

    I dropped today (im so lucky dunno) Bul-Kathos set and i try to use this build..its just awesome how it works.

    I'm a mid-geared barb (100k DPS, 650k Toughness) and find this WW spec to be great for me:

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#ShkdPR!edg!ZYYbbY

    I swap around the passives depending on if i need more DPS/fury/regen, but typically run with these. I'd love to drop bloodthirst for Ruthless or Weapon Master, but don't have much regen on my gear.

    These pants are also amazing for WW builds:http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/hexing-pants-of-mr-yan

    Mine have Int, not Str, and its still worth it. Other than that, its easy to get +15% to WW on your helm and boots, and +15% lightning dmg on bracers. Those 4 items take my 100k char sheet DPS to 186k WW "sheet" DPS.

    Hmm Warcry with Veteran's Warning, doesnt really appeal to your build I think, since you are using the Overpower with Crushhing Advance. You kinda want them to hit you. It also looks like you have lacking resistance, due to your Superstition passive skill choice, so I would recommend using Warcry with Impunity over Veterans Warning!

    I use a skorn with no fury generator, just rend, ww and sprint. Passives are unforgiving, animosity and superstition. No issues with fury even on a single target (a key warden for ex.) can ww endlessly. With more than one mob nearby I ww and sprint every 5s to add more dmg. Rend keeps you alive. Lacerate rune is good enough with an IK belt. I only have 3% ls. Overpower:momentum, battle rage and war cry are my other skills.

    I tested Veteran's Warning vs Impunity, and found it gives me a much higher boost to toughness. I have almost 0 dex, so I get almost the full 15% benefit of the dodge, making it a large damage reduction. Crushing Advance is just there for the defensive boost, and I swap it for the bonus crit chance rune when I'm playing T1.

    I was using animosity and unforgiving to get my rage up originally, as well as OP:Momentum, but then found that I could use Furious Charge to get enough Fury to replace all of those skills with better damage and mitigation. I was devoting 2 passives and 2 runes to fury generation, and found that I get more fury (and good dmg with a Skorn) by just using WW:WS and Furious Charge. In large packs, FC:RA is amazing damage, as you can just charge back and forth to fill up on fury before finishing them off with WW. On a single-target non-elemental mob, I will occasionally reach 0 fury though.

    With the wind shear rune, and the two fury passives I actually BUILD fury on just 3 mobs constantly WW'ing.

    Also, Entropy42, that's a great number ;)
