    posted a message on viable IK weap rend build
    Sounds a bit weird to me. Rend needs CHD, it doesn't need AS. However Bloodshed needs high APS and you won't get that with a 2h weapon. Even dual wielders should have big amounts of AS on most gear pieces for Bloodshed to work properly.

    Whatever works for you man, i don't mean to tell you how to play, but the word viable needs definition here, because in general, i would call almost any random build viable nowadays. I wouldn't call a 2h mighty rend build effective.

    Also, the 'good roll' on IK weapon is close to 200% CHD, if you must use it.
    Glad you're having fun with you build though :)

    posted a message on Best 1.0.7 crafted items so far?
    Since nothing has changed about crafting i would say keep this one :)
    I see the thread as 'best crafts made with 1.0.7 patterns' , not 'made during 1.0.7 patch' :P

    posted a message on Throwbarb build patch 1.0.8
    Don't want to sound like an ass but this build has been around since 1.0.3 or maybe earlier and guides were written and discussed and almost nothing has changed about it since then :)
    There are different variants of it, but you got the basic build. The minor variations are : use into the fray when you dont have -WT items, use bloodshed or marauders rage if you do and Ancient Spear can be interchanged with different abilities such as HotA. Theres also a SS-Rumble version which is meant for AOE with Mighty Throw for fury gen. I guess the most recent one was with bloodshed/hota-smash/mighty weapon in MH

    Also you should know that WT rage cost cannot be reduced to less than 1, therefor you need -4 on 1 item and -5 on the other to be capped. These items can be IK belt, SoJ, Mara's, Skull Grasp

    If you browse these forums for 2 mins you will find at least 2 WT guides :)

    Quote from Turtel

    ...the reason it doesn't work is because its actually Sever (...), that kills the mob, not HotA.

    @Turtel, this makes sense (the mechanics), but should it be this way ? What do you think, should we open a bug with Blizzard ?

    Well to be honest, it is working as intended + i don't really mind that Thunderstrike doesn't work with 1 or 2 weapons, but objectively, maybe it should.

    You can try to open a thread about it on battle.net forums and see where it goes, if it bothers you :)

    ...problem proc'ing Stun with Hammer of the Ancients (Thunderstrike), while using the Sever ?

    Yep. I suspect the reason it doesn't work is because its actually Sever (its unique affix to be precise), that kills the mob, not HotA. The stun works only if the mob is killed by HotA.


    edit: and yes, i have tested it myself :), got 0 stuns

    Quote from Bagstone

    At some point Blizzard said they'd increase the percentage of class-specific item drops, not sure if that applied to legendaries as well (or legendaries only).

    This is exactly what i wanted to post. It applies to every quality iirc.

    posted a message on Farming MP10 to slowly
    The build you are using is outdated. Try adding HotA-Smash and kill elites with that. You'd get better results farming lower MP, but it's up to you how you want to play. Increase your strength, its rather low.

    posted a message on What to Upgrade? (800 Million)
    How about a well rolled IK helm?
    You'd gain the 2set + melee reduct. and upto 6% crit chance, which is better than the AS for you. Could go resists or str+vit random roll.

    If you don't want to spend too much on IK chest, at least get similar to waht i have (195+ str, 90+ vit, 800+ armor, usefull random roll), just because its super cheap.

    Use a calculator and determine if you would like to switch your rare pants for Innas and Climbers w/o MS, but high vit. Also check how much would you benefit from STR zuni boots. Combine, compare and snipe.

    posted a message on Starting playing barb again wondering what to upgrade
    Yeah a better shoulder would be awesome, GL with it.
    You should definitely get a bit more HP and if you still keep dying, just go for more all resist and/or maybe some physical. Those never hurt.

    Also, pay attention to what kills you most often, then counter it. For example, fire kills - get fire resist or all resist. There are stats against anything (elite/melee/ranged reductions, resist/armor, HP). Sometimes 1 item makes a difference. Personally for me Litany does the trick, i hold on to it eventhough i could get a supercheap dps upgrade, but it keeps me alive :P

    Can't see why are you dying. Your defenses seem to be just very slightly low if you drop War Cry (i'd try to get 2-4k more HP), but you have excess LS and with War Cry even the HP should be fine. Getting more DPS will increase you healing even further.

    I have a feeling changing playstyle might do the trick. Did you try to play w/o shout, with HotA instead? Or Brawler passive?
