I really don't think Overpower is on the level of Revenge, except with Crushing Advance in a select few situations, namely, when there's lots of ticking damage, such as molten, Ghom clouds, plague, etc. Revenge may do less healing than Overpower, but really, you gotta think of how much of that is overhealing. To me, the consistent healing of Revenge is much better. It's served me well all the way through Inferno Diablo.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

Your stats are really close to being where they need to be. In fact, with some effort, you might be able to finish the game with the stats you have now.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
For starters, try a build more like this. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#WXSVkP!bVe!aacccZ
Sidearm does more dps than Maniac. Ignore Pain is great, but Furious Charge actually provides more raw effective health, as long as there's at least 3 targets, which is a fairly typical number to be facing against champions. It also has great synergy with Leap, since double escape abilities will often waste the CC cooldown on abilities like vortex. Berserker Rage is a little superfluous for progression, since dps is nice, but it's not essential.
For your gear, just work on getting more all resist, vitality, and armor. Your stats are already good, and an upgrade or two will definitely push you over towards a Diablo kill. Good luck!

You have a lot of dps sir! Dps is nice and all, but it's not the main thing you need for progression. You have a perfectly fine amount of health as well. What you really need is more life on hit, more all resist, and to a lesser extent, more armor.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
You only have one boss left with an enrage timer, and that's Siegebreaker. With your current stats, you'll destroy him. After that, dps won't really matter too much. Even against champions and elites, there are still ways you can take them down before enrage. Here's some strategies. I could try to explain these strategies myself, but I think a video will work better. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrLeWqyhWAE&feature=plcp

One of the biggest mistakes that people make when doing progression is not having enough Life on Hit. There are a lot of good cheap weapons you can get on the AH. You can usually find something for around 200-500k with at least 600 dps, and 700+ LOH. And that's all you really need for a great progression weapon! Personally, I'd go with a 1 handed sword, since attack speed is important for your LOH per second, and I find swords to have a good balance of damage and speed.
From there, you just need a few hundred more all resist, and you should have no problem showing Diablo who's boss!

Let me explain why this isn't a very good idea. There is a formula behind all resist. Many people think it has diminishing returns, but this is in fact an illusion. What diminishes is the rate that it converts to a %. Due to damage reduction scaling via multiplication, a stat like all resist gets exponentially better the more of it you have, as a % of course. The diminishing returns effectively create a linear scaling on damage reduction. We're already reducing so much damage, that if you could gain another 1000+ resist, you would be tanky enough to essentially break the game. It would heavily devalue items without top tier all resist.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
The real benefit to it though would be dps builds. With that much defensive power in one stat, you could afford to ignore vitality almost entirely. This would give you roughly the same amount of effective health, but vastly increased dps due to the increased item budget.

Personally, I've had a lot of success doing Act 1 farm runs. The route I use is fairly well known, but for anyone curious I go Festering Woods, Leoric's Manor, Cemetery of the Forsaken, Halls of Agony 2, ending with a Warden/Butcher run.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I used to not make much money doing this, running with about 250% magic find, but when I got over 300%, the good items just started dropping everywhere.
I've also heard that Act 3 Nightmare runs with gold find gear, going Heart of Sin-Azmodan are pretty profitable, and can make up to 500k an hour.

153 vit, socket, 6% life, 78 dex, 6 max discipline, only 14% attack speed though. How much is this item worth? Thanks!Posted in: US Servers Trading

I'm having a real difficult time pricing this item, and I'd appreciate some help.Posted in: US Servers Trading
13 max arcane power
I really want some better AH filters, as I have no idea if this item is crap or amazing, and the AH is usually how I price check things.
