What are the minimal gear and stats requirements for this build? I would assume SoJ and IK belt with TW bonuses and a decent 300'th Spear (SPARTAAAAA!!!)? Would that work with a 2-hander like Skorn? Is Echoing fury required as one of the weapons?Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

You obtained a lot of attack speed and some critical hit damage but you're basically without crit (<25% total). You want crit damage and crit chance to work with each other significantly increasing your dps. Your attack speed should already be high enough using frenzy, i'd reduce that in favor of more crit chance.
bracer - 6% crit
necklace - 8-10% crit, average damage
gloves - 8 to 10% crit and some crit damage, more strength
left Ring - average damage, 4 to 6% crit
right Ring - more average damage, 9-18 is to low. 4 to 6% crit
boots - more strength
shield - missing % crit
belt - at least 150 more strength, look for +% frenzy damage as well
weapon - missing crit damage, strength
chest - additional 250 strength (including sockets)
pants - additional 50 strength at least (including sockets)
Those two pieces won't come cheap, always look out for a bargain but concentrate on other upgrades first. You'll probably end up paying those 30M or more per piece on those to slots, it's the desired stat combination with no real alternative for any specc.
You don't have to look for pickup radius on boots, movement is a luxury/comfort stat - i actually like having it. But you don't need it especially with a SnB build. You can get pickup elsewhere as well.
On lifesteal/life on hit: with enough dps you can screw loh entirely, until then loh + revenge should beat lifesteal + revenge.
Playing SnB is a tough route, it's way easier/cheaper to achieve high dps numbers with a twohander build and way more cost efficient to run a tornado/sprint one. But if you like it just stick to it, farm as good as you can and collect gold - buy upgrades piece by piece and have fun.Quote from LyutayaHow do I improve my gear, what stats or skills can I dump and is my skillset viable for 100k+dps or do I need to learn to play with WW, Weapon Throw or dump my shield and go 2-hander or dual-wield?
Just spent 25 mil, got Stormshield with crit and a chest with Str. So far it gave me 15k more dps and 10k more life. I missed awesome Andariel's with a socket so now gonna start saving for one to get extra XP. Wonder if the proc bonus on Andy should be considered, cause price diffeence between 20% and 35% is quite big.

I used to play SnB till mid 1.0.4 and i can see your set working with some improvements. i was at 77kdps with shield before i went WW.
I don't have time atm to reply in detail cause i know it would be a novel if i start, but for now jsut wanna say that belts go upto 300str and u can get a 150 str upgrade from what u got fairly cheap.
2nd-ly, if you dont mind losing all res and block, an ilvl 63 shield (for armor) can give u about 250 str, 100+vit 12%+ life and 10% crit which is a great upgrade in terms of dps and comparable in surv. (i own a shield like this and it costed 3mil about 2 months ago - cheaper now)
3rd. avg dmg on jewelry is great dps increase if you cant afford crit chance+as/chd sort of thing and some ppl still dont charge extra for it, so you might find a good 1 if you keep looking.
uh ill finish this later
Thanks for advice bro, hopefully you will write your novel on barb gear when you have more time. So shiled block doesnt really help that much?

Hello all and sorry for yet another noobish (yeay I am a noob, I come out the noob closet) post. I am a sword and shield barb, never used any build with significant difference (tried Seismic Slam and HoTa and that didnt work out well and used to have a fully tanky build with Ignore Pain when my gear was even worse). I have 90k dps with follower buffs and do just fine on elite packs at MP6 however when I come to Belial, Zoltun Kulle or Butcher I cannot beat them before their enrage pops. Also MP3 uber bosses (except Magda/SK) do very bad things to me very fast (yes MP3, I am bad I know). I have just come upon a point where just about any improvement to my gear either costs over 30mil gold for a tiny good it does (think 20mil gold for 50 vitality or strength) or it downgrades other stats. IE my chest is quite bad (mage set lol), however chest pieces with 100+vit, 60 allrez, armor and 120+ str (thats the equal of my damage/protection) start at 3-4 mil and any significant improvement runs into 30+mil.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
So the question I have is usual with a little twist maybe. How do I improve my gear, what stats or skills can I dump and is my skillset viable for 100k+dps or do I need to learn to play with WW, Weapon Throw or dump my shield and go 2-hander or dual-wield? In particular I am interested in Lifesteal/LoH, Pickup Range and movespeed on boots, since LoH and Lifesteal add immence cost to all items and I could really improve my damage by getting better boots, but losing movement speed and pickup range.
Here is link to my stats, feel free to savage me, like film critics after watching Tom Green movie.

Great to see some charity in game, brings back the spirit of good old D2 giveaways.

What stats should I aim for in different acts? Like a barb needs 500+allres for act 1, 700 for act 2 and 1k allres for acts 3 and 4, and 35k hp for act 1 and 50+ for acts 3 and 4 etc. What are the targets I should aim for with a monk?Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary

Thank you for exellent answer. I now have another question. Is there a difference between act bosses drops? For example does Belial have better loot than Zjltun Kulle or Maghda?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Is there any difference between boss and elite/champion pack drops in terms of gear dropped, beside that which is given by 5 valor stacks?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
