    The build is for the barbarian, and it's primary fury spender is Whirlwind. Below I'll go through each of the skills and why they synergize.

    Frenzy: Other than being a really good single target dmg ability, as a good contrast to the AOE of WW, it also builds up 15% movement speed (runed), which will prove very beneficial when Whirlwinding, as you move slower when doing so.

    Wrath of the Berserker: Really nice buff, runed to continue running when fury is gained.

    Revenge: Nice defensive move with the heal, and runed to increase crit by 10%, the reason being elaborated in Battle Rage.

    Battle Rage: Good dmg buff, a bit of crit, and runed, will occasionally grant 15 fury on crits.

    Whirlwind: Your main AOE dmg. Runed to grant 1 fury per hit.

    Furious Charge: For getting you into the fray, and a good initiater and builder of fury, especially with the rune.

    The passives are Weapon Master, Ruthless and Tough as Nails.

    ----------------

    Basically the idea is to charge in, get your battle rage and wotb going, frenzy for a good full rage bar and start whirlwinding. Through the various means of fury generation, you could potentially keep whirlwinding, whilst maintaining your wotb buff too. The Weapon Master passive, using a mighty weapon, gives 3 fury as well per hit, but some say that's not working on fury spending moves. In that case, I would change it to a defensive passive, Nerves of Steel, which is the biggest flaw of this build; lack of defense.
    If there in actual play, utilizing this build, proves to be an abundance of fury, I'd change the rune on whirlwind too, probably to movement speed.

    I do yeah, win7 x64. I haven't tried on other PCs, but I tried different graphical drivers, redownloaded the beta and so forth, to no avail.

    As the topic states, the game just instantly crashes to desktop when the mouse points to a tooltip of an item. Perhaps on skills too?

    Anyone with similar issues?

    posted a message on Will Wizard's farm rate dominate the rest of us?
    Good to see my topic kept alive!

    After patch 10, I've played the beta a bit again, barb and wizard, both from scratch with no item sharing, and I kept the same quality weapon on both clears.

    The barbarian doesn't struggle, but it sure is faster and easier on the wizard. This might not be reflective of late game, but it could be. In these early levels Arcane Orb just obliterates everything.

    I did however notice, that the ease in which the wizard can dominate the barbarian, speed wise, from level 1-9, is significantly reduced in 4 player games. When playing alone, the 100 arcane power can throw 3-4 Arcane Orbs and that will destroy any pack instantly, very effeciently, but in 4 player games he needs to wait for that Arcane power to return to remove their HP.

    I guess you could say that the wizard can do a big BOOM, but then gotta wait a bit before he BOOMs again, whereas the barbarian is more consistently doing mediocre dmg, or rather high dmg, but to fewer mobs than the wizard.

    Why are those skeletons especially good for amulets? Just higher lvl mobs?

    Equipping a pair of gloves on my wizard (in patch 9) increases my DPS in the stat tab.

    Okay, well the suggested daily doses on the side of the container is 2g (0.07 ounces) per day, but health regulation here in Denmark is extremely cautious. What does your say?

    I remember last time I was in the US, you could by the craziest things in those pharmacies. A lot of stuff that requires a prescription here :)

    Okay, thanks! How much creatine is in those pills? I got the powder, so I'd take the equivelant in powder form.

    posted a message on Good tips for an aching hand/arm?
    What on earth is that? Is it supposed to prevent me from using my wrist to steer the mouse, and instead use my lower arm? I've read everywhere that that's the right way of doing it, and twisting your wrist left and right will ultimately lead to damage.

    posted a message on Good tips for an aching hand/arm?
    Yauw!

    I'm a fortunate son with access to the beta, which means I've played a lot. I can't imagine the time I'll be putting into this once it goes retail.

    This however, has a downside. My mouse hand is aching, specifically along the side (the side with the little finger, though at the area to the side of the palm), and along my lower arm's underside. Anyone else experience this?

    I know, I know..probably playing a bit too much, but I do work out etc., and use my body for other things than just gaming (Not only wanking!).

    I was wondering if you guys, who probably also game a lot, have any experience, tips, ideas etc for these kind of symptoms? I'd like to be cured/prepared for release!

    Thanks in advance :)

    How is creatine best used? You say with plenty of water. Does that mean drinking it during workout, before, after? With your protein shake. Can you elaborate? Thanks :)

    I'm used to doing a full body workout every 2nd day. I like doing a full body workout, but from what you're saying, my program has got to change continually? I'd like that anyway, do different stuff.

    Yeah.. I just managed to kill king before they shut it down. I know it could just be a standard reboot, but here's to hoping..
