Great build man, I really love to play with dogs+sacrifice, even though I can't afford the cooldown reduction right now.
In fact I got a pretty similar build but more centered around zombie bears than dogs.
I buyed pick up radius stuff and a life leech skorn for pretty cheap, and I spam the bears untill I get low mana, then I get back my mana to full with the mana rune on sacrifice. It works pretty damn well too, the skorn is slower so you don't really need big bad voodoo regeneration at all. Instead I play with the armor bonus on horrify because I need the extra mitigation since I got less than 40k life
(cheap gear and low paragon lvls you know)

It's been proven u can do low mp quite as fast with a skorn than with two 1 handers, because perma berserk is hard to keep at low mp unless you got a really low dps.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Here is my build for low mp with a skorn : http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#hURQSc!ZYh!ZZYZZb
The furious charge will most likely clean all white mobs and boost your fury on the way, killing spree is there because you can cast it while whirlwinding, and lacerate is there for elites. You are able to farm super fast with that on mp0, and at this lvl WotB or Warcry Impunity deserves to nothing. If u don't got a full ik set just take bash instead of killing spree.
And for higher mp I post you my build, though I think it only works with a full IK set and a life leech skorn :
I can farm mp5 super fast for keys or even as high as mp10, no downtime always sprinting and ww'ing, and for tough solo mobs I got HotA smash, with a fully loaded fury bar and WotB I got 90+ % crit so fury is not an issue at all, and I can crit for around 2 millions for 15 sec

You know whirlwinding with a skorn is possible, and efficient. I use a no-bash ww build with just HotA smash for single targets and it works well, mainly becasue i use a full IK set and unforgiving as passive, and the fact that u can cover more distance for the fury spent in whirlwind because skorn is slow. And yes in that case it's a huge advantage. Given the fact u can afford a skorn with life leech like I do, I guarantee you can farm high MP faster than the slow rend builds with no sprintPosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

I tried scheafer's hammer too, incredibly powerfull proc, it lasts aroud 3 sec and can crit with my gear for 90k in aoe.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
The rest of the stuff is not that a good tradeoff, but if it works for you gratz
Anyway with my normal 2 handed sword i do 80k more damage in bash, and the smash hammer crits for 120k more, plus the regen from the leech rend which is boosted too ...
Now you can add 200 strenght and 300 vita gone for, 15% life and 50 lightning resist (lol), I still use my scheafer in solo because of course it is fun, but for coop the proc don't trigger often enough for it to be on par with a descent yellow weapon.
Just my 2 cents

I got a similar build for when i'm tired of the whirlwind spec:Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Maybe with leap and bonus armor, and ignore pain lifesteal, things may get easier...
But the charge with mercyless assault and battle rage into the fray is an incredibly fast fury generator,
and chaining 400k crit with my 40k dps gear (without buff, but far from end game i think) is really satisfying
The smash hammer heals great with 12% lifesteal ^^
I even tried smash with WotB insanity, well I managed to get a 1 million + crit, the problem is that WotB lasts only 15 sec, and 3 hammers can eat all your rage, so i went back to a no-cooldown build
Anyway your build is fine, but try to add some smash hammer, 406% weapon damage crit is a lot of fun

I don't know about attack speed, but crit % and ap on crit directly apply to the speed at which u can recast nova/diamond skinPosted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
Just try some game with a barb shout, if it still doesn't work then the problem is not about AR.
25% crit seems low, as well as 19 ap on crit for a source build (might due to your mace). But good job anyway 325% mf tanking wizard, I think there aren't many like you out there :)

Thanks for the guide, I built my wizard around it and never got that much problems through the whole game, just add in some good barb shout/monk mantra and I'm ok for everythingPosted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
I post about the archon variant. I think if you can't wear a source just stick to venom hydra as an extra damage skill (base being diamond skin, prismatic armor, nova, EB, and tornado ofc) or if you still have problems to survive, maybe teleport, I don't know but honestly I don't find teleport to be that mandatory to survive anyway.
It worked for me, until I found wearing a source and killing stuff with archon while I could be out of "normal form" was very satisfying and effective. (I mean this build with archon makes u feel that archon is not a cooldown anymore, and sometimes you play longer in archon than you would expect )
But what I wanted to bring to the discussion is the life regen, if you're not using archon you can stay with life on hit, but in archon form it won't help you much. I got 1800 life regen/sec and trust me it's most of the time enough to stay alive even against the worst type of elite. And if it's not the case, you should have stayed on the "tank" form and just chain nova.
Anyway with high crit % and good ap on crit from wand/source/hat you can nova-lock most melee elites that you would have troubles with in archon form. For everything else the giant red laser is the way to go .
I don't use my shield anymore, I didn't calculate my EHP value but I don't care, a good source is too handy. If I know I will get hit on an elite pack I just not use archon until I know I can kill the low life mobs whithout them to be perma-frozen.
One last thing: Critical mass works while in archon form, this means if you're in melee range before archon (and you should) and got tornadoes on mobs, then you can pop archon and for a few seconds you can spam the laser plus the explosion of the archon form, it will reset quite often, this plus explosive blast still rolling, in a few seconds everything in front of you just dies
