Uhm, I agree I might have too much health, but I usually run Keeps 2 and Arreat for both paragon and legendary farming. I don't feel like I can run MP10 efficiently, my dps is too low. I'll trade the gloves and boots, as I feel those are the furthest ones from upgrades.
You've been really helpful, please continue!
Thank you so much

Try to pick up a lifesteal EF so you can drop Bloodthirst for Brawler -- it will make a huge difference. Also, you are generally better off running the EF in your offhand and an axe / mace mainhand since 1) you can usually get a higher min-max damage range on a rare axe/mace and 2) Sprint will proc the fear a lot less often that way. If you do decide to main-hand the EF anyway, consider a cold SoJ in order to keep the feared mobs in your tornadoes longer. Also, it can often be worth putting a marquis ruby over an emerald in the main-hand weapon since the main-hand damage range is what's used for Sprint tornadoes.
As a general rule, crit chance and crit damage > attack speed. It's useful to optimize breakpoints so you don't waste affix slots, but it's generally not worth aiming for high breakpoints until you're pretty much perfect on all of your other damage stats. FYI, for a 1.3 speed weapon with a 1.44 attack speed EF, the breakpoints are at 15, 34 and 59 IAS while WotB is active, but you currently have 47%. In other words, you currently have 12% IAS which is doing nothing for your Sprint tornado damage, though it is adding to your HotA damage.
Thank you, that was extremely helpful! I'll try to sell my offhand then and get a new Echoing and a new main hand! I don't really know what to do about the attack speed though. I'll figure it out!

Hello everyone, how are y'all doingPosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
I need some tips and guidance on where to go with my barbarian.
Recently switched from an Archon wizard, because it got pretty boring.
Leveled my Barb up to 40 paragon in a little over a week, and been enjoying it a lot!
I started out playing WW/Rend with Skorn, but it got boring, FAST. I switched to the HotA/WW build and I've been enjoying it a lot more, and it seems way more useful because I can farm white mobs, elites and do ubers with it, while Skorn only allowed me to farm white mobs.
But I ran into some serious issues, I have NO idea what I need to upgrade, what stats I want (example: for Skorn WW you just need CC/CD but with Dual Wield you have RLTW breakpoints and all that?), so I have no idea what I'm aiming for, and I'm basically in a downhill spiral.
Can you please give me some guidance on what gear I should replace/get?
Thank you so much for your time,

EDIT: I should add I'm on EU and I have an 700-800 million budget.

I have already completed the game before 1.0.3 (too much pain, not enough profit).Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
Farming is a whole different discussion though.
The build I'm using ATM is way better, with Force Armor, Force Weapon, Diamond Skin+Teleport as defensive and Seeker+Arcane Hydra for damage.
Those 150k crits and 30k crits from my Hydra are awesome, and I'm not dying at all except to some really pesky packs.
I'll try and get my gear checked out, but having a full time job proves to not allow me upgrade my gear at all.
Thank you all so much!

i would like to echo the above statements. take a weekend to just focus on your gear and skills...research it, then read again to see what else has been done. There are 2-3 viable, quality builds out there. And of course, there are ways to play outside these builds, but i dont see much about them on any forum. Life Regen is the latest and greatest thing. People are waking up to it and its true. I have both 1400 life regen and 900 life on hit, and it helps tremendously.
For example, i am currently playing a CM wiz. I found another guy streaming his CM wiz last nite with similar stats. both around 25-28K dps and 35-40K HP. He had over 8K armor, which is fine, but wasnt helping him. I have only 5K armor, but a ton of life regen plus the standard life on hit. It wasnt cheap, i had to farm forever to find/make enough gold to get some of the gear. But its worth it. Look at my chest piece (link is below), found it on the AH for 500K gold just after patch 1.0.3. You will find deals like that all the time. I also used Loroese's EHP calculator religiously when i was building up my wiz.
Just put some time and effort into a specific build, defensive is probably the best way to go (imo) if you plan to progress thru act 4 as well.
DAMN, that chest piece man.
On EU AH, I never get any deals, ANY DEALS, everything is so insanely overpriced. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but god damn it, people are insane with prices atm.

Thank you so much for all the replies.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
I have some nice pointers going around and I'll try to build around those.
Just for clarification though, the build I have is not the build I'm using, I was just messing around.
I was using Missile+Seeker, Blizzard, Arcane Hydra, Force Armor, Magic Weapon and Teleport+Fracture.
A lot more survival came from this spec, but I still die pretty often.

My wizard is my main, and I'm trying to get him geared.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
I want to farm Act 3 efficiently, but I just can't, at all. I die extremely easily, and I don't even have that great DPS.
I see wizards here rolling with 150k DPS and I keep wondering, what am I doing wrong?!
So if anyone could give me some tips, look at my gearset and tell me what to upgrade or what's OK for now, etc, it would help me tremendously!
