What's a good version of the build to use if you are playing with a tank? You haven't updated the builds to use in the OP.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

Does anyone know of a way to turn off the background animation of the login screen and character selection screen? Before you enter the game and you see your character standing there, I want to disable the moving background completely, just something static would be good. Sorry if repost.Posted in: Technical Support

Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's KeepQuote from JCLeQuote from Solmyr77So, to sum this idea up, I guess, this was the thought process:
1. We want to avoid melee combat because it's disadvantagous.
2. Instead of rolling a ranged class, we make it work with the Barb.
3. We try to make the 130% weapon damage Weapon Throw spammable.
3a. To achieve this we reduce its cost down to 5 via items.
3b. We use a mighty Weapon with Weaponmaster to get 3 of those 5 fury back, reducing the effective cost to 2.
3c. We use the slowest, heaviest hitting possible weapon (2h) to minimize the fury cost per time. Let's say 1.00 attacks per second, that's 2 fury per second and 120 fury per minute.
3d. We use several non-melee usable cooldown abilities to fuel this fury need. Pretty easy.
Now that we had to give up our survival abilities(mainly passives), we can't go into melee anymore anyway and enter the realm of glass cannons. This means, we could gear for full dps and be a oneshot or spend millions to survive some hits.
Sounds like an auto attacking Demon Hunter with zero discipline to me(I have both at 60).
Sorry for being harsh
3. 145%, but yes.
Would you mind explaining this little tidbit, isn't it 130? Or am I missing something really tiny detail

Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's KeepQuote from JCLeQuote from AnachronistLooks very nice..I've played around with it a bit and had purchased a set to play around with. I only tried DW though..I may have to give it another go. Not to mention sword and board isn't my cup of tea.
I understand. I didn't roll a barb to go with a shield either but it works and it matches my armor so I'm good..
DW - 2h and sword and board all work. I like the shield because I die less, actually almost never now. DW definately does more damage, you can put in emeralds and get massive crit hit damage which gives you 100k +++ dps, which I think is overkill if you don't have reasonable survivability.
I don't understand why you even use a shield at all. In what way is it even helping you survive more? Does it have a lot of vitality? I mean normally when i think of shield i think of revenge build. Why not just equip another 1H and just dps faster.
Also would you mind giving me a screenshot of all your gear pieces, I'd like to see the stats so I know where to follow.

The gear requirement has gone up a lot, you actually need badass gear to do Act 3 now. I realize that a lot of you may now be unable to complete the run due to enrage timers, which sucks, but I think that we can work around that.
First, I suggest you guys try to play multiplayer. Since they also removed the increased damage from additional players, it is now viable to tank in a group. You may want to change a few skills, in particular Ground Stomp is great. Others you can try are Threatening Shout and Seismic Slam (Strength of Earth). Seismic slam is amazing against normal mobs but really struggles against elite packs, as they are immune to knockback.
So you're suggesting that we change our skills to Ground Stomp, if so what will it replace? And If we pick up Threatening Shout and Seismic Slam? Do we need all of them?

I was wondering how you gear your follower, as I have no idea what to do with mine, I played with friends all the way to 60 and never touched my follower, also their specs would be helpful, thanks zrave.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

As an example, why doesn't rings just work like the mainhand. If I enter values of 2(bot dmg) & 6 (top dmg) for ring 1, and place a 0 dmg stat ring in as possible switch, shouldn't it just know that the change will be -2 and -6? Like the Weapon 1 section, if i just enter in 200/400 damage weapon, and enter in 0/0 it will then have a change of -200/-400. Basically, why doesn't the column G just work for everything else like it does for Weapon 1. We're already entering in the current stats of the weapon2, ring, amulet in the Column C, why must it be repeated in Column F? Column C and F will always be the same anyway. Sorry if these are dumb questions, I'd like to take a stab at something this intricate someday, and wanted to understand the thought process and mechanics.
It looks to me like Column D (Change) will always be Column G - Column C. So what then is the point of F?
