So, last night I noticed I had "only" 35% Block Rate in my Status Panel.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
I'm using 2 pieces with % Block in my gear:
The Helm of Command = 8%
Shield X = 27% showing on its second line and with a 8% block bonus.
So… the 27% is the total Block (already considering the 8% bonus) or should it should be only the passive % Block of the Shield?
Thanks a lot!

Changed my gear to almost 200/300 All Resist + 17k DPS (full buffed) + 2x WOTB + DPS Passives =Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Almost died twice (due his meele hits) but...
Doable with 3mins enrage timer but I don't think it's possible (FOR ME) to farm 5x NV then do Belial :P

After the 1.0.3 Nerf I could run much better in Act II. I couldn't rush into elites and loot the goodies but I was able to kill all of them (ok, few packs I died a lot, but I'm not a very good player).Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
The trouble I have now is BELIAL.
After 3 minutes (usually 25% health) he starts to Summon-Without-Stop-Meteors and no matter how good I am to dodge (latency >= 250ms -:sigh: Brazil- that stuff I die.
Anyway, anybody else is having trouble to kill Belial with this "soft" (yeah right, "soft" is when the boss does more 25% damage) enrage? Is it a Bug? (the patch notes says he will spawn MORE and not Constantly ehhee)
Thanks a lot folks.
PS: I was able to kill 2 elite packs at same time but only because they had really "easy" affix.

I for example plow through act 2 with 24k dps, 0 loh, 0% life leech but 10k armor, 56k hp, 23% sacred and ~900 resists. Those health globes every now and then are enough to keep me up while playing with the cookie cutter defensive build (charge, leap, ignore pain).
Just wondering, how can you get 24k DPS, 10k Armor, 56k HP and 900 resists with Act II Gear + AH? How much did you spent in your Barb? I believe you already finished the game, farmed Act IV and now have this stats, right?
Right now I noticed it's impossible to buy better gear costing less than 800k each piece (with good stats + All Resists).
Anyway, I can post my stats/gear/build but I'm not sure what I can improve without buying gold or playing endless Act I runs (or using the RMAH :ouch:) - Once again, I think I just can't understand how this Inferno difficult works eheheh (or maybe I'm really unluck with RNG w/ Drops and Elites Spawns).

Looking at your latest gear post i would suggest upgrading your weapon as a priroity.
If you can grab a 800dps sword with a socket your dps will skyrocket. It should cost <1mil.
Other than that the gear looks reasonable for act 2.
Last night I got a new weapon with 700+ DPS (I don't remember the exact value right now) plus 400+ LoH and >90 Vit/Str, my DPS increased (around 11k DPS when i have 5 stacks of Frenzy+100% Fury) and now I have around 750+ LoH but I still couldn't do Inferno Act II! ahahhahahahha
I think I'm just a bad player (which is weird since I play games since forever but... happens, right?) so I'm going to farm Act I, get more gold, wait for the Nerf Patch and then I can have fun again.
Anyway, thanks a lot folks!!!

Hello, quick question.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
A friend of mine sent me a String of Ears and now i'm not sure what belt to use... (I think i'm going to stick with SoE, so I can get the meele resistance).

well I but I still think it will take 2-3 weeks before they do push the change through :).
Selling before it became "crap" = fair enough.
- I still stucked in Act II Inferno but I agree that the pants and boots are the weakest pieces you have so far. Maybe a better ring too? (I'm stucked right now with "bad" rings and I couldn't find any good costing less than 800k D:)

Just wanted to say I've been following this thread because I'm in the same boat. Not sure how far you got in act 2 solo, but I was able to get up to where you have to get kule's blood and the other part of him.
- My last attempt to run Act II failed: I tried a run with a DH friend but we couldn't reach Maghda. Last night I only ran Act I again to farm more gold and maybe get some upgrades - but, of course, didn't drop anything good for me =/ (I have the amazing luck to get STR/INT in all gears, Bow, Monk Helm, Wizard Hats, Staves etc).
I'd post a screenie of my character too, but I'm on my other computer to post lol. Probably not better than what you have by any means. I can tell you i got 30k hp 500 res all, 7.6k def buffed and about 12k dps. I really need to get my vit and str to an even 1k, but hard to find gear like you stated. I'm thinking about trying to get a string of ears for the DR %, and see how that helps out.
- 12k DPS? Nice. I'm trying to keep my health high (40k+) while I try to buy gear with more Str but still hard to find pieces that I can afford =/
What really blows my mind is my weapon has 400 life on hit, and its still not enough to survive sometimes lol.
- Nice! Do you know the DPS value of your weapon and how much you paid for it?
I bought my dagger by mistake (missclick sucks) but at least it's not that bad (I had to buy the Gem with LoH, but it's only 105), i think i paid around 130-200k, not sure + 40-50k gem (OUCH) =/
Just wanted to thank all you guys, cause I wouldn't have gotten as far as I did without reading all this. Now I just need to win the lottery (in game joke of course) and buy a stormshield lol.
- Same here!!! ahahahhaha
Thanks a lot!

Right now this is my Gear and Stats (War Cry + Enchantress):Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
And my build is:
I'm pretty much farming act I w/o any trouble at all - so, I still need to figure out how I can handle Act II w/o issues.
I marked with a Red Square the gear I want to replace, but right now I couldn't find any REAL upgrade costing less than 1k D:
PS: I didn't find *any* gear with LIFE ON HIT and good stats (Vit/Str) in the AH =/
