Quote from aloys24Quote from KilltroXWell i also use a skorn and have been for a really long time. You can check my build in my signature. It's a really unusual build but have been playing it since paragon 5-ish. I don't there's even 5 people that play this build But you can try it and see how it's working for you!
Basically the only fury spender I have is Rend, so my fury is 99% of the time full. So I use "Berserker Rage" which gives you 25% more dmg when at full fury. So my unbuffed dps is 135k and at full fury it jumps to 220k, which is a really big leap!
1 - Use War cry and Battle Rage.
2 - Use Furious Charge with Merciless Assault Rune (-2 per enemy hit). So when I hit 5 or more enemies with that, I spam that till there's less than 5 left. (A good whirlwind replacement I think.)
3 - Then you use Leap with Iron Impact to boost armor for 3 sec and Rend or whatever way you want to use it.
4 - Rest of enemies I Bash. And what I like about the Onslaught rune is that basically do more than 200% w-dmg. With this rune the enemies always fly when killed, which gives me satisfaction
I haven't done any Alkazier runs or any runs to see how much exp/hour I get, cause that doesn't concern me at all.
interesting build. I might have to try it or some close variation. Have you tried using WOTB also? max fury with WOTB might give you some pretty insane damage.
I'm not worried about exp/hour either mainly just farming for good loot and the paragons come along with it. How is playing without sprint? it has to be a lot slower than with it...
I was using the exact same build several months ago on my barb before I switched back to monk. This had been popular 2H build here at diablofans before paragons were introduced.
It can be done with WotB, but the strength of the spec is that you don't need to rely on it at all, skip it and have the same power all the time.
It is completely different gameplay than ww/sprint builds. It is indeed quite slower, but the kill speed of combined rend, charging and bash:onslaught is very good. Charging through pack of mobs back and forth is pretty fun, especially when you interrupt their animations with it. If you don't look only at pure movement speed, mobility is great seeing you can charge out of jailers and leap from walls etc. Imo the build feels way more "barbarianish" then the 24/7 spin mode of ww specs. The loot/xp effeciency is lower ofc.
If you wanna have some fun, try it. Nothing feels better when "it hits like a truck" and you are the truck;)
