Made some changes to gear and skills - any advice on what to upgrade next with about 1mil? I still feel pretty squishy in MP1, trying to do the Alk route.
Here is my armory link:

What's a good health and res. that I should be at, before focusing more on the damage stats?Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

Wow classic tanky style barb , reminds of the good ol days - spamming the revenge key hehehe. :)
Welcome back , barb builds these days are fast and furious to maximize paragon and farm effectively . - Whirlwind , Hammer of the ancients , Throw builds and Rend builds are the most popular at the moment. All have 1 thing in common - Speed both from equipment and the Sprint skill.
Look to upgrade movement speed , crit chance , crit hit damage.
Life steal works well once you start building up your dps - Barbs can use life steal from the passive , belts and weapons.
Hellfire ring can provide useful stats depending on the proc - also 35% bonus xp which is nice for paragon farming.
Some extra vitality and around 400-500 all res should be more than enough for mp0 -mp1 .
You are basically looking to increase damage and kill faster as "sword and board" isnt really needed for low level paragon farming.
Good luck and have fun out there
Haha, thanks. Yeah, I've been having fun even with the old build, Inferno is SO much easier now. But I can see how I am going a little slow, considering how easy it is.
Could I get a couple links to popular/standard/generic builds? Not wanting to carbon copy, but to get an idea of the current meta.

Hey guys,Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Just coming back from a few months off of playing Diablo, so I was wondering what the general trends/current good builds and skills are. Here is my current armory:
So far I've been going through Act 3, MP0 no problem with this setup, just wondering what I should be looking for in equipment, weapons, etc. I only have like 500k gold right now, not much to work with, but I would like to know what I should be gearing towards.

hmm, interesting. I will try this out. It seems like the main artistic challenge of this build is making sure you generate fury fast enough to keep up WOTBPosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

Heh, page-turning, but Not scifi or fantasy realllly narrows down my recommendations. You realize, Twilight is fantasy?Posted in: Off-Topic
But anyways Kurt Vonnegut is a good recommendation by SeppTB. Pretty much any of his stuff. Game of Thrones books are basically medieval epic fiction, only light touches of magic/fantasy.
I'm also a big fan of the classics, Stoker's Dracula, Tale of Two Cities (though probably not 'page-turning' til the 2-4th read). OH, The Count of Monte Cristo is FANTASTIC, unabridged version might be too dense for your tastes (I have no idea) but there are some good abridged versions.
Sigh, there is just too much good stuff. Just, just, go read Everything.

If you want stats, for A2, you would want 550+ resists, 6k+ armor (unbuffed), ~40k hp, and then a LOT of dps. That's a sweet weapon you have, and if you have your DH able to farm the gear, you could probably get to that point.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

Honestly, not really. Not without ridiculously over-gearing everything. Ranged classes can focus dps because they are ranged and play style revolves around not getting hit. Barb would have to have the gear to both deal ridiculous damage AND living through at least a few hits.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
