His boots are worth 5 times my entire gear set combined
Man this spec requires some serious cash to throw down on gear and the damage isn't amazing either. Looks pretty OP though. I would have to say the tornado barb is like a million times more ridiculous though. If something needs a nerf, it should be them not us.
Sure, if you want to jump straight into A3/A4 inferno, any build's gear is gonna cost some serious cash. If you want to just try out this build, you can probably give it a go for around 600k. All you need is:
1H weapon with 300-500 LoH and 500-600 dps, $:150-300k,
Shield with int and crit, $:100-200k
2 blue rings with +7% atk speed and 80-90 LoH, $50-100k ea
1 blue amulet with +6-7 crit and 250 LoH, $50-100k
1 hat with AP on crit, $100k
This will get you farming A1 easily off the bat. Wasn't long until I was into A2. A3 on the other hand.. that may be a while...
EDIT: windupwizard.com puts up a shopping list for 650k, I don't know when he posted that, but I'd be hard pressed to find that kind of gear for those prices. He must either be a really good shopper, or really lucky. Things are more expensive, but you can still get started for less than 1 mil easily.
