Ohh, and most importantly, don't just buy what's available when you have the money for a big upgrade. Wait until it's what you want, not just close. If you can wait a week, you can get a better item with the stats you're really looking for.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

I've been playing awhile now and made a lot of mistakes with this. So, I believe I can offer some friendly advice.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
People say life steal isn't better than loh until about 100k dps. I say depends on playstyle. 2-handed players with axe or higher speed weapons will gain as much from life steal weapons if ls is 2.5 or higher. And barbs especially if they have life steal on their belt, won't notice a difference. At around 50kdps, you just need either ls or loh. Get the better deal.
People tend to move into the 100k dps range too defensively. As you go up in dps, you can go down in all res. just keep your vitality high.
Buying minor upgrades isn't effective unless you're in need of improving an area (if you're dying too much or unable to kill fast enough). Unless you don't have movement speed. Never give an inch on ms.
It's better to farm until you get a killer drop, flip that and buy something you'll be proud of. Something that will really improve your character. Especially now that you're very likely to find minor upgrades anyway (almost every minor upgrade I've made post 1.04 has been followed by a drop which was almost as good or better).
Really, farming mp0 is so effective now that as long as you can do it reasonably well, there's no point in good starving your character for items you'll want to replace as soon as you acquire them.
The other thing is that the more you play your guy, the better you'll understand what he needs which leads to smarter improvements.
Just farm. Don't pick up anything other than rings, amulets, gloves, legendaries, and weapons >=ilvl62. Otherwise you're losing too much time.
Hope it helps.
