Barbarian With 2.6 Million DPS
ErlendOlsen has managed to reach a whooping 2.6 million DPS on his Weapon Throw Barbarian. He showcased the numbers by posting a topic on our forums and also on the EU Battle.net, including a video of him slaughtering Azmodan on Monster Power 10. Here is the video itself and also his build and Battle.net profile.
We will be performing scheduled maintenance on Thursday, October 25th. Maintenance will begin at 5:00 AM PDT and is expected to last for 2 hours. During this time, all servers and many web services will be unavailable.
I found a nice Butcher's Sickle and a nice Three Hundredth Spear on the same evening so I figured, eh why not try that throw spec DTX has used. It is super fun. Granted I am nowhere near geared but it's a really interesting way to approach the barbarian. Also, these videos are awesome. All the variants that are tried. Very neat
Anyone willing to bust out their wallet (or have the e-fame to warrant lots of handouts) can manage a build like this. Granted, it's probably going to cost you bare minimum 1,000 bucks if not more, but doable.
If anyone actually manages to get this gear through legitimate means, that is either finding the drops, grinding the money or playing the AH to afford it, I tip my hat to you.

Oh pitiful shadow lost in the darkness,
Bringing torment and pain to others.
Your damned soul wallowing in your sin.
Perhaps... it is time to die.
Amazing accomplishment on all that damage, but the think I don't like is, it has nothing to do with skill, you get the gear to overpower the content, and then completely ignore the mechanics of the fight.
Also, why do you need a "weapon throw" spec if you can stand and tank the world?
I don't get the point in him using a Weapon Throw build when he's just standing there taking the blows anyway (it's not just supposed to look cooler, it was also made to have some kiting potential), though by his own calculations even a 2H HotA build didn't pull as much dps, oddly enough. I wonder how WW Barb at such a gear level would compare.
I would honestly be extremely aggravated if Blizzard decided to nerf Barbs off this alone. I agree that there's room for some tweaking but to make the argument that Barbarians are overpowered because they can do over 2 million DPS with virtually the best gear in the game is rather fallacious.
Give anyone enough gear to tank MP10 blows and you'll be seeing them doing millions of DPS, too.
Just tried the DTX spec and it's the most fun i've had with my barb in weeks! It's not as efficient as ww spec for farming of course but it's so much fun. I don't think you need that much gold to play it too, of course if you want to do mp10 you need ubergear but the rest is doable with a medium budget imo.
