Hello i started a journey with my wizard in inferno. There are mostly CMWW or Archon wizards walking these days but i wanted be something different.
Idea was use 3 Elements : Fire , Lightning and Cold because there is a set bonus with 4 pieces of Tal Rasha which increase damage of each by 3%. There is a gear which improve damage of this elements also, so goal was complete this 3 elements to 1 like a puzzle. I finished with build i called a "3Storm build".
Now i will explain which skills and runes i choosed and why i prefer them.
Electrocute - Forked Lightning
I always loved this skill because it do damage to 3 enemies at time. With Forked Lightning and good crit chance this skill is just awesome AOE spell which damage whole area of your monitor
Blizzard - Frozen Solid
Blizzard is nice spell which u can cast multiple times to cover more enemies in area. This skill is also chillin ( slowin your enemies) and with Frozen Solid rune it also have chance to freeze enemies at initial fall of shards on the ground for 3 seconds. This is great for concept of this build because we profit from this spell in 2 ways. In defensive ( kiting, freezin enemies ) and also in ofensive (our passive called Cold Blooded will increase damage to enemies in blizzard by 20%).
Arcane Power spender skill
With enough of Crit chance which is needed for good efect of our primary skill and with enough of Arcane Power on Crit stat, we can choose some spell as arcane spender. We already have a Cold and Lightning so we need just Fire now to complete the puzzle.
Meteor Molten impact
Perfect Arcane power spender with nice damage. Molten Impact rune increase its damage. This spell do an intitial damage and do a fire damage for 3 seconds after it. This is great for concept again because there is also passive called Conflagration. If we have this passive all fire damage apply a debuff on enemies which increase damage to them by 10% for 3 seconds. There is also a Liquefy rune which can be good too for this purpose but it must be tested. I did not used it yet, maybe as time go i will so.
There are 3 free slots for skills now and i choosed all will be only buff spells to save arcane power in fights only for damage( meteor spam).
1. Buff skill
Magic Weapon - Force Weapon
This buff increase damage of your weapon by 10%. With Force Weapon rune bonus is increased to 15% and attacks have shance to knockback enemies which is good for some defense to reduce incoming damage. U can also pick a Blood magic rune for life steal but i think beter will be get life steal on weapon.
Familiar - Sparkflint
Familiar do damage to enemies and with Sparkflint rune all damage from spells will be increased by 12%.
3. Buff Skill
Energy armor can be good defensive buff with runes like Prismatic Armor or Force Armor but it can be a good ofensive buff if u pick Pinpoint Barier or Energy Tap rune. Choose what you want.
Cold Blooded = +20% damage to enemies in blizzard
Conflagration = +10% damage to enemies damaged by meteor
Glass Canon = increased damage by 15% at the cost of 10% armor and resists
There is many items which add damage to some of this elements like Triumvirate, Tal Rasha amulet, Fragment of Destiny etc. Some are good some not but who know what blizzard will do in itemization patch hope this build will gain more damage from new improved legendaries.
U definitely can play with this build as alternative to already most played builds. I am already playing just mp4-5 with no problems because i started just 2 weeks ago and my gear isnt so great as wizards have theses days but i am working to upgrade it. I hope u will give a try to this. Feedback, critics or improvements are welcome.

Yeah i know rend damage is calculated from main hand weapon, but still i just prefer dualwield all the time :).Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
And also i tried a HotA build which was very interesting but i found this more comfortable for me.

Hey guys. After long time and milions of dead hell creatures i am so bored of WW build and want to play something new. So i came with idea of build for my dualwield barbarian. Maybe it was here before, i dont know, but i was just playing with combinations and found this great for me and my playstyle.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
What i am curently using:
Primary skill: Bash - Punish (i like this rune because its great damage booster +24% dmg)
Secondary skill: Furious Charge - Merciless Assault (curently using this for some mobility during elite fights to quick move from danger, but its great damage ability when u are attacking many creatures, u can practicaly spam it)
Buff skill 1: War Cry - Impunity (for defensive boost because this build dont have defensive passives or any defensive skills)
Buff Skill2: Battle Rage - Marauders rage (30% dmg + 3% crit chance)
Buff/dmg skill: Overpower - Killing spree (+10% crit chance and aditional damage ability is nice)
Dmg/heal skill : Rend - Blood lust (with all buffs from skill and passives its great damage ability which constantly heals your barbarian )
Brawler - additional 30% damage if u are fighting 3 or more monsters
Ruthles - +5 crit chance +50% crit dmg
Berserker Rage - +25% damge to all your abilities becaause u will be full fury all the time
Summary of bonuses from skills and pasives:
+18% crit chance
+50 crit dmg
+109% dmg = great
How to fight? Its easy. Buff yourself with shouts and then just charge into monsters. Use your rend and keep it up always for fast healing and damaging all monsters around you. Along with this just use bash all the time to damage single target to get your fury at full and also gain a damage bonus for other abilities. Use your Overpower on cooldown to gain another 10% crit and deal additional damage to monsters around you. Also u can charge throug monsters to kill them faster, if there is many u can spam it, if u are fighting elites use it to quick move from fires, arcane or any other dangerous situations.
My barb is at 128k dmg unbuffed but when i am fighting and fully buffed it just jump at 320k
Curently i am loving this build more then ww which i played till 82 paragon because i feel i am playing something again. If u want change u can give a try to this build. Also its open for some changes in skills if u have better ideas or some critics.
And there is my battlenet profile if u want see my gear http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/isil-2586/hero/31496

Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's KeepQuote from IsilCheck my profile, maybe it will help u improve your build or building your gear in right direction. Everything what i need its just vile wards with big load of str and strongham bracers with same. Then i will just go for better versions of all items i am currently wearin with more str. Currently i am clearin mp6 with no problems at all. With slaughter rune on wotb and stone of jordan i am killing elites very fast and during wotb i can even tornado through fires/arcane shits and poison with no problem because my ls (8%) and IK 5 set bonus is healing me very well.

The build im using.
Also aldoran, about LoH should i then drop my LoH weapon, and go for one with high dps and crit dmg?
Hi, change battle rage for leap with armor bonus rune and change your pasive weapon master for relentless as first. U will get epic mobility with 2 moving abilities and survivability along with relentless pasive too. Fights with this builds are easy just jump to group , activate wotb and try fast zerg 1 of elite mobs, use pot and revenge for healing, if u are going down charge through mobs away for heal and kite for time till u have leap ready again. Get healthglobes when needed dont use it stupidly and u will be fine. Trust me. Btw i finished whole act before nerf with 300 res all (with warcry active!) 13.5k dmg and cca 9k armor. After nerf i needed more dmg for belial coz enrage is simple dps check, but some nice weapon droped for me and now i am doing fine with max 3 -5 deaths whole act with 47k hp, 10.5k armor, 450 res all and 16.7k dmg. Already finished fires in act 3 with few deaths, will need some more runs in act 2 but no problem with this build. GL!
Btw my LoH is 0 :D I think better is get some gear with meele dmg reduction, i have 2 pieces each with 4% dmg reduction. I think 8% dmg reduction from most creatures is just awesome!

if u dont like game, dont play it! There is big replayability in this game because u have 5 classes which u can play and beat inferno with them. And yes this game is about collecting endgame gear. Same as in D2 and WoW. Or are u blind and dont see that? Start playing without usage of Ah an u will see how much harder is to progress through a game on inferno. I just finished act 2 few days ago ( i am playing without AH from first day! 240+ hours!!!). And ofcourse i will still enjoy after beating inferno completely, coz i will want find my set and other best gear for my class. Same as i wanted in D2 and WoW till i stoped playing this games. Endgame in WoW is same for non-pvp players, just doing the same lame raids over and over, so stfu with your stupid arguments about zero replayability and go play tetris or something if u dont like item-grind games.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Man i finished act 2 yesterday with 250 redits all and 15k dmg. 9k armor and 50k hp is enough. My skils are frenzy with sidearm charge with dreadnought warcry with resists wotb with dmg for fasr zerg leap with armor rune and ofc revenge with provocation. GlPosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
