Needs more defense I think.
Swap ruthless and bloodthirst for nerves of steel and though as nails.
I would also swap invigorate for impunity, other than that it looks pretty solid.

I'm with JudgeCarnifex here, I personally would prefer Rend over HotA. But can you explain how Rend with Ravage gives you 60 fury while spending 20 fury? I don't see anywhere in tooltip that says Rend gives you more fury...
He said rend 20. Meaning, rend 20 monsters with Weapons Master passive whilst using a mighty weapon...voila - 60 rage.
Wow weapon mastery with mighty weapon applies to skills as well? I thought it'd only apply to autohits. That.. is nice!!

I was looking at something very similar to this. Alot of DPS output and some survivability. My only main difference was I went with overpower instead of earthquake for the added free attack and the boost to crit. And instead of cleave i went more single target and grabbed frenzy for more single target since my hammer was built for mor AOE.
Solid build that i personaly am going to try to take into hell for sure.
Inferno switched to a different, more survival based build
Looks a bit more balanced (and better) then the OPs build for sure. I will probably go for something similiar but might go with rend instead of HotA since I really liked rend in the beta

Is it just me or does dread bomb seem kinda "meh"? To me it just looks like way to much fury for the damage it does, or am I missing something?Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

Looks like a solid low level build if you ask me. Though I would take smash instead of rolling thunder seeing as you already have plenty of AoEPosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

You dont have any singetarget damage, devs have stated that it will be important in inferno so I would suggest getting atleast one good single target damage ability.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Change "Death from above" to "Iron Impact", you will need the extra defense and stuns wont last long in inferno anyway.
Change "Vengeance is mine" to "Provocation", its just better
War Cry with impunity is a good choice and Im guessing it will be more or less mandatory in inferno
I would probably swap wrath of the berserker for something else, perhaps Battle Rage with Marauders rage?
Lastly I would swap all of the passives
Inspering Presence wont help much against the insane damage, neither will juggernaut. Change them for better defensives that reduce damage taken.
Ruthless is awsome for a crit build but Im pretty sure there is some other passive that will be better for damage in your build.

To much focus on regen and not enough defense if you ask me.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Triumph rune will be good if you play solo I think, in group play there is a chance you wont get the kills and therefore not the heals.
Change "Vengeance is mine" to "Provocation" - More damage and more heals
For War Cry the impunity rune is just to good to pass up if you ask me.

I agree with some of the others, I think shields will be more or less mandatory until you get enough armor and resists from your other gear to survive.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

Shield would help if you're lacking high dps weapons. I'm trying to go for 3k-4k armor to take 50%+ less damage and about 204 int for 50%+ resistance. If i can manage to get more on each stat without using a shield, I'll be rolling 2H or 2 1H (Depending on DPS).
204 int means 50% resistance? That is pretty high considering how high the stats are on endgame gear.
Correct me on that but I'm fairly certain armor doesn't scale too well. Meaning if 2,000 armor offers 20% reduction then 4,000 won't offer 40% but quite a bit less meaning it could make more sense to stack other stats instead.
204 int should be equal to 6,37% resist, not 50%.
To get to 50% resist from int alone you would need 3000 int.
3000 armor would give you 50% damage reduction as well.
As for how they scale, see these graphs:

I like the second build alot more then the first, I would probably just switch frenzy for cleave and hammer of the ancients for rend while killing regular mobs and switch back for the bosses.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
I dont really think you will need threating shout in normal difficulty and I would rather have a mobility skill like leap or furios charge instead of ancient spear.

As some other people have already stated I think they are saving the shield skills for a new expansion class.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
My guess is that they will add a new strength based class which will use shields, a paladin-ish class perhaps?
