Just tried Grim Harvest on my Keyruns yesterday evening, and it is a noticable difference in gold and loot drops. I didn't have the luck to get a legendary via Grim Harvest, but 14 Rares in 1h Act 1 Keyruns (4 runs actually, Cemetary -> Cryptas -> Keywarden -> Scavenger Den -> And again) on MP3. I replaced Overpower - Crushing Advance for Grim Harvest and had no noticable difference in Defense, but more Loot. So yeah, I will now use Grim Harvest over Overpower ;)
Thanks for pointing out this topic.

If you use Weapon Master Passive, Polearm is not very good, as the 15% IAS brings nothing for this build, as Rend and Charge rely solely on pure Weapon Damage not DPS, and IAS only pushes DPS. So Axe or Mace is the way to go because of highest possible Weapon Damage and 10% Crit from Weapon Master which directly pushes Weapon Damage. So a ~1100DPS Mace is as good as your 1250DPS Polearm Damage-wise (not talking 'bout DPS here, remember ) when using Weapon Master Passive in this Build.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

I'm totally stunned on Typhos 2Hand Merciless Assault Build. http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Grimfist-2793/hero/2078435Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Big 2Hand-Hammer, 2k Str and happy Charging. Much more fun than WW-Sprint to me.
I call myself Juggernaut!

I looked at your gear, and there are no real big issues. You could get a helm with Crit Chance on top of socket, all res, str and vit. Change your Vit-Gem in your Bul'Kathos to a Str-Gem, and try to get some pieces with +armor on top of your existing stats. But with your actual stats you should have no problem at all with this build. I completed Inferno with way inferior gear than yours.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

Yeah you can swap around your primary ability between Bash/Onslaught/Punish and Cleave/Rupture/Broad Sweep, it is mainly up to your playstyle, cause both are very viable. I use Cleave/Broad Sweep atm for farming Act 3 Trash and Elites, I find it more usefull than Bash, but I used Bash to complete Inferno Act 4.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Ignore Pain instead of Leap/Iron Impact is also personal preference. I use Leap because I think every Babarian Build should use Leap for its pure awesomeness. :D
Leap into a pack, Rend and then charge them to death like a truck, that's my way how I want my Barb to be played. It's this feeling of being a real Juggernaut
@Draken: There is no need for WotB only for Anti-CC purposes. Only real problematic CC is being jailed in Molten/Desecrator/Plagued but both Charge and Leap are your "out of jail card" since 1.0.4. Fear is no prob anymore, cause you can only be feared every 6secs now, and that's enough time to place a rend and 4 cleaves which most of time is enough dmg to kill elites.
Ah and I can't stress it enough, I love this spec.
I'M JUGGERNAUT BIATCH! :D

You are just kidding, aren't you? You wear a Skorn, together with some of the best Legendaries for DPS Barbs, and you have Problems with Solo Act 3? I completed Inferno with way inferiour gear and the same spec, so only thing I can point out is a big L2P!Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

Please check out Typhos "Merciless Assault 2Hand Guide" http://www.diablofans.com/topic/66797-2h-barbarian-build-merciless-assault-build/Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
He uses Bash instead of Cleave but it is no Problem using Cleave with either Rupture or Broad Sweep. I used Bash for completing Inferno, cause it gives more damage against single Targets (e.g. Bosses) but for farming Trash and Elites I found Cleave to be more usefull and use it with Broad Sweep Rune atm.
So yeah it is definitly possible, you just need a good 2Hand Hammer with Life Steal and 1100+ DPS

After clearing Inferno with my Furious Charge/Rend 2Hand-Barbarian I startet leveling my Monk, only lvl30 now, but as of now I must agree with the Opener, Monks are very very boring to play compared to a Barbarian with Leap, Charge, Rend and Cleave. A monk doesn't have any spells which can effectivly be as interesting as a Barbarian.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
I can kill everything with my monk and never die, but only thing I do is Leftclick, with occasional use of the number-buttons.
I hope that until I get 60 that some other patch changes some mechanics of the monk, cause otherwise I will be using the exact same Build forever (which 99% of all Monks use), and only fun ability is Sweeping Winds.
It's just boring compared to the fun gameplay mechanics of a Barbarian.
Maybe I give the DH a shot, for all the dex gear I've collected since farming Inferno with my Barb.

To everyone who is asking how much stats are needed to complete Inferno with this build, here is my current equip and a rough stat-breakdown. Current Profile http://eu.battle.net...93/hero/2078435Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Edit: Ah and before anyone asks, my current gear cost was about 750k gold overall, with 4 pieces self-found (helm, neck, left ring and waist). Weapon was 75k at AH.
My Stats are as follows with Enchantress, Warcry/Impunity and Battle Rage/Marauders Rage
500 - 750 All Res, where Phys-Res is 750 and Fire-Res is 650 (the two most important Res)
With these Stats I was able to complete Act 3 and 4 in one run of 3.5 hours with around 20 Deaths (5 to Diablo, 1 to Azmo, rest to Champs/Elite and even 2 Deaths to Trashmobs ) yielding a total repair cost of ~60k gold, but earned over 400k gold not counting AH Sells.
So overall this spec is very solid for completing the game, much more solid than blender WW-Spec imho.
