    posted a message on Ultimate Random Chat Thread [URT] v4
    Holla people. Know what's weird? My browser has automatically opened up like 6 tabs since forever every time I open google chrome; diablofans being one of them. 2 months has past and not once have I peered in the forums, hardly watches the news anymore. I usually just close the tab and go about my way. :S

    Anyway, been busy, well not really, just lethargic. Busy with exams atm and how ironic is it to finally check diablofans when I'm don't really have the time hehe.

    Have been playing D3 exponentially less and less. Well ofc of the exams, but I'm kinda bored. Have only played once for like an hour with the new patch (1.0.8) where the monster density is higher. Before the exams I was playing BF3, cause all my irl friends play it hehe, so it's lots of fun.

    Anyway, don't know when I'll post again, so cheers to y'all and enjoy the coming weeks.

    Well, I'm currently attacking my second degree, which is a Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering.

    Cool. I've probably mentioned somewhere that I'm doin Civil Engineering hehe. 4th year atm. Suppose to finish this year, but I fucked up my second semester last year...so 5 years it is hehe. Don't know where my motivation went the 3de year and still now -_- I need it back asap.

    Well, while most people are bored of D3 by now, I'm just now getting really pumped for it. I'll hopefully be finally playing this game by next weekend when my pc arrives. ^_^

    That's actually good...in a way. The game now is how it was suppose to be at launch, so you'll have a really great first impression and probably enjoy it more than people during launch hehe

    Edit: Don't get me wrong, I still play the shit out of the game hehe

    Lols. Only reason this version is dead is cause everybody left after D3's release...diablofans was/is the place the get all the newest updates on the game, and since most of the people don't play it anymore, most of the people don't bother coming back here. I'm still playing D3 from time to time, gonna keep playing it till when ever.

    Quote from KilltroX

    I use the exact same build...and I sense a bit of déjà vu... :Thumbs Up: In fact, that is where I first saw that build and then used that build till now. The only difference is that your build has the Tough as Nails passive and that other one has Weapon Master. But as you said, it depends on your gear. My gear is good enough to play without that.

    This might not be the fastest playing build, but it's definitely the most fun i think!

    Ah, I seem to recall that thread. That's why I had the sneaking suspicion that this might have been talked about before. I changed my barbarian build so many times during his life that it's hard to keep track. I didn't think our builds would end up being so similar, I guess that's great minds for you. Credit where it's due, though, that's a good thread :)

    I just remember loving Merciless Assault while leveling that it saddened me (back when the game was first released) that it just wasn't nearly as viable as all the other defensive skills you needed. I'm so glad I can use it in a farming/offensive build now. It's so fun to just tear through groups of enemies.

    Well the last post on that thread was on the 2de of November laste year and was on like the 7th or 8th page on the Barb forums, so it's been dead and forgotten by most :P Good minds...yes we have them :P

    Quote from KilltroX

    Well i also use a skorn and have been for a really long time. You can check my build in my signature. It's a really unusual build but have been playing it since paragon 5-ish. I don't there's even 5 people that play this build :D But you can try it and see how it's working for you!

    Basically the only fury spender I have is Rend, so my fury is 99% of the time full. So I use "Berserker Rage" which gives you 25% more dmg when at full fury. So my unbuffed dps is 135k and at full fury it jumps to 220k, which is a really big leap!

    1 - Use War cry and Battle Rage.
    2 - Use Furious Charge with Merciless Assault Rune (-2 per enemy hit). So when I hit 5 or more enemies with that, I spam that till there's less than 5 left. (A good whirlwind replacement I think.)
    3 - Then you use Leap with Iron Impact to boost armor for 3 sec and Rend or whatever way you want to use it.
    4 - Rest of enemies I Bash. And what I like about the Onslaught rune is that basically do more than 200% w-dmg. With this rune the enemies always fly when killed, which gives me satisfaction :)

    I haven't done any Alkazier runs or any runs to see how much exp/hour I get, cause that doesn't concern me at all.

    interesting build. I might have to try it or some close variation. Have you tried using WOTB also? max fury with WOTB might give you some pretty insane damage.

    I'm not worried about exp/hour either mainly just farming for good loot and the paragons come along with it. How is playing without sprint? it has to be a lot slower than with it...

    Mmm, never tried it with WOTB (I'm assuming with Thrive on Chaos rune for longevity or Insanity for pure 15sec dmg?). 2 one handers with some skills/passive which generated addition fury will obviously work better. I've also tried adding HOTA to the build (for 1% CC for every 5 fury), but doesn't work well...too slow imo. But I will try it out and report back!

    The thing is, I play either in pub games or with friends, and even without Sprint I tend to be faster than the others; not cause of the build but I just don't like standing around waiting :P

    But let me know how it is for you.

    Quote from Vashan

    I was using the exact same build several months ago on my barb before I switched back to monk. This had been popular 2H build here at diablofans before paragons were introduced.

    It can be done with WotB, but the strength of the spec is that you don't need to rely on it at all, skip it and have the same power all the time.

    It is completely different gameplay than ww/sprint builds. It is indeed quite slower, but the kill speed of combined rend, charging and bash:onslaught is very good. Charging through pack of mobs back and forth is pretty fun, especially when you interrupt their animations with it. If you don't look only at pure movement speed, mobility is great seeing you can charge out of jailers and leap from walls etc. Imo the build feels way more "barbarianish" then the 24/7 spin mode of ww specs. The loot/xp effeciency is lower ofc.

    If you wanna have some fun, try it. Nothing feels better when "it hits like a truck" and you are the truck;)

    Indeed. I saw this build on here as well. Before that my barb felt weak and wasn't much fun playing with even if I killed the enemies fast. This build makes you feel so powerful and that is what makes it fun to play.

    Not only the kill speed, but the survivability of it is immense. With Rend + LL weapon and/or belt + leap + furious charge you almost can't die. I've only played MP6 as the highest and even with my current belt I rarely die. I do have a belt which gives me +72all res and +6k life before, but changed it for my current one.

    Oh and do you need potions: :P
