    While Mempo is nice for EHP, you will miss the crit chance unless you're loaded and go for crit Mempo. Every percent crit lost equals a percent of monsters not killed, as we only kill with crit rends. So unless you plan to compensate for this loss of crits by whirling more, which would reduce the overall effectiveness, the 5-6% crit on the IK helmet are a substantial boost.

    The goal for this set was, pay less than 100m and get enough ehp for a baneling. You will lose 70 all res and 9% ias with a IK helmet and there is just no way to compensate for this on a low budget. I would use andariel's with all res for higher budgets.

    Furthermore in your posted set you have over 100 strength on Inna's Temperance, which is impossible. You can either have up to 100 single stat-roll, or a 100 str 100 vit hybrid roll. Probably just a typo, but should be considered.

    2 x 46 str gems + str roll

    So here is my opinion about the 500m trash barb video:

    - The Full IK Set bonus is just terrible, never ever go for it. You won't see that much difference in fury regen and you waste a lot of more useful stats. For example, always go for zuni boots if your budget is not billions of gold. We have a black weapon with very high damage range, average damage on rings and amu, the 8% poison dmg are just insane for us.
    - 37m for the IK head, dunno .. remove 47 all res, add 2% more life, 40 physical res and you are at the same ehp for 2m
    - You don't need IAS on a Skorn, it's bad. The DPS looks good but your damage range suxx and it's a wasted roll (you can have 300str and 200 vit / 500 str and or 200 vit instead of 300 str and 7ias).
    - His Set has ~950k EHP, that's too much. 450k is good, 650k-700k physical melee is perfect to survive a baneling.
    - He is talking about the 1.33 APS Breakpoint but the sheet is showing 1.16 aps (1.41 with berserker). This is 2% ias below the first good breakpoint or 7% wasted ias. Remember the 7% ias on his Skorn ? 2 Items with 9% ias are perfect.

    Anything accessible to the public yet? He asked for specific gearing advice, so just saying that a certain approach is bad is not really helping without pointing out what parts are bad and how it could be improved.

    I'll do that as soon as i have the time. Was just a quick reply to stop people from wasting gold.

    edit: For the people who can't wait, here is a 25m set which is close to his 500m:

    170k dps
    5.8k armor
    49k hp
    450 res
    61.5% cc
    523% cd

    http://theleagueofle...milmp10barb.jpg

    I'll still talk about the the video as soon as i'm ready.

    We are testing and theorycrafting about MP10 trash farming for 7 weeks now and all i can say is, the 500m video guide is terrible. You can get better results with a lot less gold / waaay better results with the same gold.

    Not worth a topic so i'm posting this here. Why is my char with 12% Movement Speed on a chest faster (didn't calculate how much but it looks more like 15%) than with 12% Movement Speed on boots ?

    I'm confused about some of the numbers. For example Seven-Sided Strike:

    No Rune (7 Hits) 0.174
    Several-Sided Strike (9 Hits) 0.084

    2 more hits = 50% less procs ?

    Don't know if it is useful at all but the detailed calculator got a "PvP mode" (simulates skill damage against other heroes). Take the numbers with a grain of salt because there is still a lot of research and testing required (and i have to level every class to 60 again on my other account :P)

    edit: i'm working on the missing skills but it's a lot of work (i need a full day with fraps / vegas / my calculator and a lot of paper for some of them)

    I understand the alkaizer run for fast exp but why should i do this for loot ? You need 1/4 of the run to get 5 stacks and there are more great "high density area's".

    So they don't fix it and it is possible for a ruby with 150-150 damage to add 225-450 damage ? That's sweet.

    Don't know whats wrong but my calc says 11k loss with skorn (http://www.d3rawr.com/d-zR94i, check Set 2's Mainhand Weapon Damage and % Damage Bonus numbers because they could be different for your Skorn)

    Thanks for the link,

    Axe with 90% crit dmg gem is 4303 more sheet dps or 9.5% more effective dps.
    Axe with 100% crit dmg gem is 6455 more sheet dps or 11% more effective dps.

    This is with Battle Rage, Anatomy and Passive Skills.

    The Axe is 13% (effective dps against elite not sheet dps) better for me with a 100% crit dmg gem and 8% with a 70% crit dmg gem. This is with my gear but you can give me a link to your barb and i'll do it again.
