    This is a really impressive read, thanks!

    One thing though.... Would you be able to explain a little about how the WW APS spreadsheet works and what i'm looking for. I've got a mediocre WW Barb as main char currently which needs improving. It's currently working on getting the RoRG.

    Left White Columns - Put Your Stats: Weapon Type, Attack Speed On Weapons, Total Attack Speed On your Gear (There is only 3 Slots, Helm, Rings, Paragons, But Iif you have More Attack speed From Gloves, Amulet, or Belt Just Add it on Ring or Helm Slot) P.s. At The Bottom You Will see Your Total Attack Speed

    Middle Grey Columns - Here u Can see The Attack Speed Breakdowns For Gain Extra Attacks With WW (With and W/o Wotb Up), Check Your Total Speed For see Where you Stand with Both your Main Hand and Off Hand

    Right Yellow Column - Here You Can See How Many WW Hits x Second You Gain.

    Nice Starliath!

    I think you forgot to add the ring (soj) for where you need % physical damage!?!

    You didn't mention ''ressource cost reduction'' for paragon skill point in utility!

    I might read it again later, I just woke up :P

    I hope for you, and all ww lovers, that the ww skill get a buff in patch 2.1!

    Nicely done!

    X MrTeK

    - Thanks, Added The Ring (SoJ) to the List!

    - I Didnt Add It becouse No Points Should Spent In That Paragon, But you Right, Not Adding it was a little Confusing, so i Added it and Explained the reasons for not put points in it :)

    - Yes i hope too WW get a buff and can be a Competitive Spec in Tiered Rifts in 2.1!

    Hi, I tried out this build yesterday and I found it be very lackluster in dps.........I think I may be doing something wrong.

    I'm finding.......
    1. No issues with survivability with and without the unity
    2. Issues with damage
    3. My CotA keep dying

    I haven't bothered figuring out the attk speed cap so that maybe an issue.......also have a set of bulkathos weapoons that are both around 2.2k dps if u include the attkspd on the vow, but found this TF + doombringer to be slightly better.

    I find I'm critting around 1.4-2 mil. I could use a physical SoJ I guess.....but I found even t4 to be slow.....so I doubt 1 SoJ would be the difference maker.

    Maybe I'm just playing it wrong? Can you post gameplay vids of some other packs other than butcher?

    Any suggestions would be great, I guess i can start keeping an eye out for physical gear again :D Profile

    x BananaRiot

    - SoJ is Very important, Is not Just About % Physical Damage But Elite Damage Bonus too

    - You miss Haunt of Vaxo, Is Amazing and Help a Lot With Damage, Its like a Mini-Cooldown Ability. I use Mine Wich is rolled Poorly, Over Perfect Amulets With ChC, ChD, Highter Str, and % Pysical Damage.

    - Dps On Weapons, Str and Every bit of stats Help, Your Weapons are Very good and i would use em over Bul-Kathos, bu like Everything Can be Improved/upgraded.

    - Cota Should Be Like Immortal With your Gear, Try To put Paragons Points in % Armor Instead of % Life, See if it Help your Cota Survivability.

    p.s Yes i Will post More Video

    Does rending immediately after charging for strongarms proc make a huge difference? I think it may be noticeable....last treaasure goblin seemed to die much quicker.....maybe that's another thing I'm doing wrong lol

    Edit: So yeah I uhh decided not to be dumb and rended after FC and works wonders......just goes to show I'm no good at testing builds when I'm about to sleep.

    Build works great and I love that I can play with WW again but u know like have other things to do other than spin to win

    Yeah Banana, is Correct :)

    I've got question - is there a point to go for ww build with 2h weapon as I lack even 1 good one hander. I started playing barb again just a few days ago (most of the gear is my crus gear) and I admit I find ww fun though from my perspective it lacks the push hammer has. Would you be able to suggest anything for me regarding ww build? http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Estreiher-2799/hero/1618596

    IMHO 2 good yellow one handers from Kadala would be better.
  • #13

    X Adana

    - No, 2 Handers and WW dont Go Well Togheter, your best way to get weapons is using Kadala like Wash Suggested and hope to Get some Good Rolled Legendaries 1 hand Weapons.

    Build Advices

    - Talents - Are Perfectly fine, Your Bloodthirst Synergize well with all your Bonus Globes, But if You Do Not farm High lv torments and your Survivability is fine i would remove one of your Defensive Talents (Superstition or Bloodthirst) and Add another offensive talent, like Ruthless or Brawler.

    - Gear/Sockets - Put Str Gems in your Sockets. Everything Else is fine. Just Need Upgrades :(

    - Skills - Change Wrath of Berserker Rune to Insanity*

    *i would Replace Wraht of Berserker All togheter as Perma-Slot in Your Build, Even if is Good Vs Bosses/Chest Events, in a WW build with No % Cooldown Reduction, is just Too Slow, Use it only when is needed and replace it for everything else with Rend (Rune it Offensive/defensive Based on your Needs) or Overpower/Revenge

    - Change War Cry Rune to Impunity. You do not Use Any Ability/talents with % Life Regen/heals, Your Hp are Low. Impunity Would help you more.

    That's all.

    Starliath, your feedback on this thread is really impressive. Would you consider reviewing my build/gear and advise me where you think i'm going wrong?

    At the moment I run T3 with groups, T4 I get one shotted by most mobs. My DPS is okay but survivability is low.

    My ultimate goal at the moment is working on RRoG and items for EQLeap build. I'd be really pleased if I could at least survive T6 whilst grinding so I can play with friends and make the most of the exp.

    Any feedback you have would be much appreciated. My B/Tag is in my profile I believe.

    X HO2X

    Thanks for your Nice Words :) Lets start with Your Build Advices/tips :)

    Build Advices

    Talents - Nothing Wrong are all Good Choices, but honestly i would remove Bloodthirst if you dont have at least 50 k or more Bonus to Globes, Probabily in your Case Superstition would be a better solution.

    - i Would Change Weapon Master wich is Kinda Bad with Mighty Weapons, I would use Rampage if you play mostly in party or Can get a good buff-uptime when you play Solo. Otherway Brawler is good Alternative.

    Gear/Sockets - Str in every Slot (is fine to keep tres all gems till can get better gear and the res all from somewhere else), also i would use % Life on Shoulder Instead of your CDR, will help you a lot more.

    Skills - Replace Weapon Throw with Frenzy Runed Lighiting, as WW you want to stay in melee full time and frenzy is a melee ability, is stronger, and it stun, wich proc your Haunt of Vaxo and can do Good Damage vs Single Target Bosses.

    - Change Valanga Rune to Glacier, Freeze is lot stronger as CC even if does slighty less damage.

    - I would use Furious Charge over Battle Rage, you will gain Extra Mobility and a knockback to proc your Bracers power, rune it as you want, almost all runes are good and useful

    - War Cry Change it to Impunity, your life is too low and Extra Res will Help your survivabily a lot more than the extra regen.

    Thats all :)
