Questions for my Earthquake barb

  • #1
    This is me:http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Kshatriya-2565/hero/7827085

    I now play in t4, some times i die, but rarely. Id like to be more effective in higher torment levels and dish out more dps.

    I have good magefists and all 4 pieces of the reathquake set.
    Aughild set bonus seems very nice, but in order to wear it i cannot equip magefists. what do u guys think?
    What would u tweak around?
    I also have lots of weapon not sure which to use: Bul-Kathos set, TF with high roll, and two other zwords.



    Thanks alot!

    craft Devastator, theres nothing to tweak around besides getting better stats on ur gear. + crafting better all res gems is a waste of money.

    instead of gambling axe, you should try to gamble rings for stone of jordan, cause ring costs only 10 instead of 15 shards.

    Where are you spending you paragon points? You have too much high toughness. I think you can change your AR gems for strg gems.

    And i you want to be hardcore, you should do a female barb, cause she has faster leap, than male.

    EDIT: and i think, that TF should be much better than anyone of your weapons. Its proc is extremly good.

    parapoints:
    Core: maxed out fury, otherwise i would loose a lot when leaping. a bit in ms and rest in stre
    Offense: CHC maxed, rest in chd
    Defense: maxed out all res, rest in life regen
    Utility: maxed out LoH, rest in area damage

    Good tip for stone of jordan from rings, will do that.
    I feel i need the thoughness, cos when playing T5 i do quite a lot, also my healing isnt optimal

    try to look at alkaizer's profile http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Alkaizer-1727/hero/46742145.

    You have almost 2,5x more toughness than his barb. You have too much high health pool. Optimal is around 400k hp, the max defense stats and you dont need almost no healing. The goal is, he is in the air asap, then just running around target, avoiding taking dmg and sometimes hits with HotA.

    And as i said, do female barb, cause you have one more leap each 10 sec i think. There is topic about this barb somewhere on this forum. Try to look into it.

    You need a unity on you and your follower to do higher torments, its that simple. You literally take like 60% damage reduction atleast

    he plays solo with his templat i am guessing. I however prefer playing in group with my clan.
    I feel like i do fast and dont heal enough when playing in T5.

    Could you explain why u shouldnt get no more then 400k hp?

    When if u say u have to run around the taget u need ww for that rather then HotA, with HotA you stand still a lot

    In my opinion, no such thing as too much toughness. Sure, if you get lucky to get double unity setup and play solo, it`s a totally different thing, but ignoring that, T5/T6 will hit you hard enough that you will want toughness. The incoming damage is also high enough that you can`t outheal it, the idea is to burst down mobs (dead mobs can`t hurt you). When playing T5, does the average pack take you more than ~20 sec to kill? (I`m not talking about troll ghost packs which /afk outside the map half the time, but a "normal" pack which you can reasonably aoe)

    I`d go for area dmg in paragon instead of LoH; area dmg is really strong (and very underrated, it provides a huge damage increase when mobs are piled up), and the LoH itself is quite useless (or so I`ve found at least). I`d also max crit dmg instead of crit chance first (or even look into CDR with leap).

    Gearwise, SoJ and an amulet with fire% would be very big (even if it`s a yellow amulet, if it rolls str, fire%, CC, CD it`s going to be huge). I`d experiment with a diamond in helm. Whether to use magefists or not, depends on how you "feel" it goes (whether you need Aughild`s or not), so that`s up to you. I would reroll the shoulder AR into EQ damage, seeing as that is your main source of damage.

    Does EQ even proc area damage?
    I've been testing it all day and I can't seem to find any difference with 0% or 50% area damage.
    I think only direct attacks proc it.
    I do have it maxed for HoTA, I'm just wondering about EQ.

    Just a diamond on helm and CDR from paragon point makes a huge difference on leap. Especially on a female barb.

    You don't really need both the weapons. I would go with a sunkeeper + whichever of the two drops and a SoJ.

    Mobs die way to fast from EQs even on T5. I rarely have to HoTA them. The problem is elite packs and this is where the +elite damage helps.

    My EQ ticks for 18-22M but on elites I've seen it tick for 52M solo and 64M with wizard and witch doctor buffs. This is with WotB:Insanity and Harrington belt active.

    my EQ's tick for around 9m... I guess i am afraid i will die to sfast when i throw all thoughness overbaord.
    regular mobs die from EQ's, elites a bt less fast. I have a SoJ but that stats on it really sux big time..

    This is what I thought too. I had diamonds everywhere and even run EQ set with IK 3 set for the extra resists and extra heals.

    Shitloads of toughness but way too low damage, I changed back to cindercoat/magefist/SoJ and all the gems to rubies and stuff die so fast the only healing I need is from health globes.

    375K hp,16.5k armor, 985 all ress and I can farm T5 without dieing, I even do bounties on T5 cause wth they take the same time to do as T1.

    Think i have 9.5m toughness. But it's the right kind of toughness, only have 250k hp with that. I'm playing with ignore pain, which doubles your toughness for that 2 seconds you need to get ur quackes off. Also im playing with ground stomp which increases ur toughness in a different way. And if u kill elites that fast, ur not taking much dmg. there are 2 rly anoying affixes and those are electrified and firechains, as you pull mobs on top of you when leaping. For those i pop the ignore pain.
