My vote went for Diablo 2 upgrade.
I wouldnt want to see the same zones revamped into new graphics but there's a few mechanics in diablo 2 that is a large part of this game category (farming) which was by far much more fun than diablo 3 (for me) has ever been - not that diablo 3 is boring nor a bad game.
I wanted to see the same type of item farming, not slashing through alk run after alk run. I know, mephisto,countess,pindleskin they we're all the same all the time but minus the NV stack farm and countless of elite kills just to see shit drops everywere. For me my usual farm in one run was: Countess(Act1) Andariel(Act1), in Lost City(Act2) there where a quick yet good sewer, Mephisto(Act3) then there was Pindleskin (Act5) and two other bosses just near first waypoint(I guess) in Act 5 I used to kill. I loved that run, didnt yield good items all the time but it was funnier.
I want to see that in diablo 3, more than this.
All in all - Diablo 3 is better, but it need a bit more work. My way of farming wont come back, I live with that but I wont live with current iteminsation.

I appreciate the quick replies guys.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
So theoritecal speaking, if Echoing Fury gives me 2k less dmg(the one in my stash) - does it actully give me minus 2k dps or due to the affix it gives more outside the whitesheet?

Hello there Barbarians of Diablofans.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
I've noticed a trend, is it? Most likely when you look at a high-end barbarian he is always carrying a Echoing Fury now it is a good weapon indeed but why does barbarian use it?
I have seen through AH yellow ones with better stats, CD and dps for less bucks than a Echoing. What's so special with Echoing? Is it the (0.25+ attacks)? If it is, why is that importnant?
I hope any of you has the answer I am searching. Be well!

Considering a new offhand weapons with atleast 150STR 150VIT & Socket. Should it have life leech & base critical dmg too?Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

you've got a nice budget... and do have points to improve...
first that the stats you've written above are buffed stats (dps, ar, armor).
you seem to lack base stats - strength and vitality are quite low... should be at least 30-35k life and 2000 str.
movement speed and attacks/s are ok. crit hit chance is rather low in order to benefit of the 500% crit hit damage.
one option would be to switch that nice belt for a IK belt - it would give you all res, life leach and the set bonus. thus you might drop bloodthirst for tough as nails for a big increase in defenses (80 all res+ the pasive bonus)
also the two weapons are low on main stats - at least the offhand should have some nice stats, i had a mace once with 250 str and 250 vit :) (and socket of course)
also innas are good for the speed for farming mp0-1 if you want the challenge of higher mp try some conservative pants with only str/vit/ar - as much as posibble for all of them :)
should find some lacunnis with crit chance - don't know the prices now but if you can afford ar as well, would be very nice.
Thank you ill note this and upgrade myself.
So I will be dropping some DPS for Survival is that correct?
I will swap belt to IK belt for (3)set bonus - also kick out bloodthirst for tough as nails as you say.
Legs was replaced with blackthrones - good upgrade in term of life(10k+)
I am not into speed-farming really, I enjoy challenges and rather farm higher MP even though its slower XP. One day I will get 12% movement ice climbers.
I will swap my lacunis for crit chance, should it have str & vitality aswell? I suppose.

Get new pants; Your hp is so low man, you should atleast get 35-50k. Those pants are ment for glasscanons. Get one with high vit and strenght. I usually go for blackthorns pants. They are simply the best.
Yes this is exactly what I thought, but dropping them also means 12% movement speed loss but thats nothing big right. Can replace with 12% move on ice climber one day.
How abou blackthrones? Should I go for them and not for something with AR?
Edit: Bought a cheap pair of blackthrones now.
458 loh 185str 181vit. so I got 37k hp now.

Hello there. I feel theres something wrong with my barb I am not sure, I can roll mp3 without dying at all but ones I step to mp4 I start dying a bit too much so I was wondering if any of you other barbarian lots can help me out a little bit.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Armory to my Barbarian:
5.6% life steal
510 Life on Hit
520 All Ress
Right there it is.
What should I buy next for my Barbarian or even better, what is the item that will do the biggest difference in terms of how I can WW my way through atleast MP5 that's what I am thinking, if 100mill will cover it.
Hope you can help me.

So what if a moderater trolled his thread? Fact is, I have 300hrs played and have not seen one single set item and only two legendaries until I tried this out i've had alot more drops(sure it can be paragon,mf,"rng") how ever, random choosed IP is RNG. Since I tend to get more 63s on even numbers below 98 and ofcourse not every run set/legendary but more often then I used too, i'll just take those extra minutes and find a good ip. The market has to start somewhere so theory from my side is that either some characters are created with implentet easier to find good items or it is the IP's that have a big judgement over allPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion
ps. your dog is ugly. no need to show it up as it was a god gifted dog to you.
