Geared up for this last night and it's a little disappointing. I brought myself up to 33.5% unbuffed crit (41.5% after) and I need at least 3 probably 4 mobs to stay perma-WW. It's a little easier if I take Revenge-BSC or go into Berserker but still can't maintain on a boss unless I'm in Relentless mode. I've got around 70k life 1k resist and nothing is even close to killing me (I was WW through Belial meteors and Rakanoth hits last night) with the nerfs so at least it isn't setting me back. I went the shield route to save money and because I felt the armor and crit % would benefit me more than 15+6% ias and crit damage.
I want to invest some more in this build but I'm hesitant. How much more crit do I need to maintain? Is it ever possible to perma-WW against a single enemy? I'd like to pick up an axe for 10% and maybe 8-12% from rings/helmet if it will help but not sure I want to keep at it if I'm going to have to constantly stop to build rage when fighting bosses/elites and things that run from me. I could care less about how fast I kill whites.
Thanks for the help guys.
To perma WW on single target 75% but you dont want to do that
Arround 50% To infinite zerker on single target pre IAS nerf, now its a little more.
Frenzy at 5 stacks its better than Perma WW vs 1-2 Targets. On less than two targets I recomend you to use frenzy and unload with shout over and over and WW if you are at full or under 50%life (but dont lose the 5 stacks from frenzy). You will need that unload if you want to mantain the zerker on single target, i do all bosses on full zerker without lossing it.
And yes Its little dissapointing after pach, the survival is cut by half due to the ias nerf and the dps dropped alot.with my gear ww now only do 2 hits each 360 degrees, before it did 4.
The build still works but it takes more time to kill things with it now, there is more efective builds for barb atm but i will keep playing arround it maybe with some modifications
