    posted a message on How far can WW go?

    No, not really. WW is not as weak as Raharl is suggesting. No offense, Raharl, you're just wrong.











    Sucka, I'm not wrong; you just don't know what the hell you're talking about. WW is no good this season -absolute trash. The best you can do is maybe mid 50s. Non season -who cares about that as you can have 2k+ in PL points to make up for some of the loss in damage.

    The author of the thread you linked even laments how terrible WW is now. If Free (the guy who wrote the WW guide you linked to) says WW needs some love take his word for it not mine.

    WW will not allow you to properly GR push for the time being and it doesn't even come close to IK/R. MOTE, LoN and Frenzy barbs... to say otherwise is just plain stupid. And this is coming from a barb whose all time favorite barb build is wastes WW build.

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/19891169223




    Did you read my whole post ? I've done grift 68 with 741 paragon + 4 augmented items. So that myth about WW being trash and only capable of doing grift 50 with 2k paragon is debunked. I also never claimed WW was stronger than any of the builds you mentioned.


    Did you read what the OP said ? He doesn't want to play FC and he finds MoTE boring and guess what 2 builds you first suggested to him.

    I actually agree with most of what you've said, aside from the "ww can only do mid 50's grift with 2k paragon level".


    @Adjust91
    WW can speed farm regular rifts and bounties. This is the thing though, it takes good gear to do it. Mean while you can slap on a raekors/mote set with crap gear, crap stats and clear just as fast if not faster than a fully geared WW build that someone spent a significant amount of time to gear. Raekors/MoTE and the other builds Raharl mentioned are just that much stronger.


    When it comes to grifts it depends on what do you want to do. Push grifts ? Not a good idea. At best you'll get low 70's and that's with really good gear and fishing for the right rift with the right mobs etc and once again a crappy geared Raekors/MoTE can do much better with much less.
    Considering this is an alt, it might not be a good idea, but if you like playing WW that much go for it.

    Oh really? That's a real shame as I really enjoyed it. I main sader now and want the barb for support however need a solid farm build. I was thinking ww wouldve been a nice option for tx/bounty farm. Is it not even worth that? What is THE go to speed farm build?





    No, not really. WW is not as weak as Raharl is suggesting. No offense, Raharl, you're just wrong.
    WW is still capable of doing GR's in the low 70's, but you really need specific gear + decent paragon level to achieve this and you will have to do some fishing. It's not easy.


    With that said, you'll find getting to GR 70 or higher much easier with Raekors and MOTE as those builds were made for this season and are just that much stronger.


    I've done a lvl 68 already, the author of the guide I'm linking you has done a GR in the low 70's too. If you're wanting something easy, go play MOTE, if you want something hard and challenging, go Raekors. If you just want to farm TX/bounties all 3 options can do it, WW is just harder to gear.

    And so the cycle repeats its self.


    Ban the current bot, they create a new one, Blizzard finds a way to ban that one and a new one gets created in its place. etc etc etc


    Being going on for over a decade if you include d2.




    The Warden: You are here because your account is about to be destroyed. Its every single character terminated, its entire existence eradicated.

    Botter: Bullshit.

    [the monitors respond the same]

    The Warden: Denial is the most predictable of all human responses. But, rest assured, this will be the sixth time we have destroyed it, and we have become exceedingly efficient at it.

    Lol yeah pretty much.
    People criticize Blizzard for "not doing anything" but really they've done a lot over a long period of time (think 19/20 years).
    This is just a fight Blizzard can not win. It's like torrent sites. You take one down and another 5 come up in its place every time.

    posted a message on The "Help me Re-roll" Thread (Barbarian)

    Hello Gents,


    I got this thing just now.

    1. Should I reroll strength from 1295? Perfect roll is 1465str, providing a potential increase of: 1465-1295=170str.
    2. Should i reroll cold damage?
    3. Perfect roll is 1870-2325 (or average damage 2097,5).
      Current average damage is 2038,5dmg.
      Perfect roll would provide a potential increase of 2097,5-2038,5=60 avg cold damage

    Which is stronger? 170str vs 60 avg cold damage. Thanks


    IK Ancient weapon


    Did you already gift that thing ?

    I would probably reroll weapon damage...strength gets so watered down once you hit a certain paragon level.


    The little bit of armor you'd get vs strength vs the tiny bit of extra damage

    posted a message on looking for a non WW build
    Quote from Twoflowergo-next

    Is the might of earth set with earthquake still viable? I somehow got it together while farming for the WW set items.

    Define viable ?


    Can it clear t6 with ease ? Yes, but so can many builds.


    Can it do high level greater rifts ? No


    Only build that can do what WW can do is raekors, but when it comes to greater rifts you're a lot more squishy and will have to do a lot of fishing.

    posted a message on Barb or monk for solo grifts?

    Both classes have strong builds capable of doing high level greater rifts.


    Play the class you enjoy the most. We can't make these decisions for you. It's you who have to play the class, not us.

    Having WW% damage on boots and helm is a huge increase to single target damage.

    A lot of skills use main hand only, but WW alternates between both.


    I'd still put my higher DPS weapon in main hand


    What weapons are you using ?

    Yeah it's funny you need the gear to get to higher greater rifts, but once you reach a certain level your gear becomes less important. Map type, mob density, mob type, pylons & rift guaridians play a more vital role.

    posted a message on Ancient IK Weap vs Non Ancient BK
    Quote from ko0l1go-next


    Should I gift them or just stay with 5waste + 3ik ?

    Do what ever you please.


    Both the 6WotW/4IK and 6Wotw/2Bk builds can go pretty higher in greater rifts. Both are really strong. As for which you should go for is determined on 2 things.


    1) your preference

    2) what ever build you're better geared for


    You have given us little to no information so I can't say much. Ancient weapons are annoying to find so if you already got a good IK weapon (no pic so can't say) I'd base my build around the strongest weapon I got and work from there.

    Am I the only one not bothered by stuff like this ?


    I've played d2 for so long and I'm so accustomed to this happening on a regular basis. I even enjoyed such a thing to happen cause it usually inspired me to play a new class an build.


    Funny how things change.
