hello, using a 2 hander + cleave is very viable for a barb. i out survive many WW barbs at MP7+, the build is lots of fun. i use cleave (broad sweep), rend (blood lust), ignore pain (ignorance is bliss), war cry (impunity), battle rage (marauders rage), furious charge (merciless assault). passives are ruthless, nerves of steel, weapon master. my stats are 3161 strength, 1489 vita, 216k dps (159k dps unbuffed), 10.2k armor, 79k life, 51% life bonus, 47% crit chance, 463% crit hit damage, 3.00% life steal, attacks per second 1.16, resists are 1k to 1210, and damage reduced from elites 7% (ring). on average my crits are 550k to 800k. charge is great against jailer, helps get out of tight spots, and gets my barb away from arcane beams. rend is good versus frozen, jailer, desecrator combos. many 2x 1h WW barbs focus on speed, attack speed, and dps. those build types sacrifice life (usually have 35k to 50k life), defense (usually 5k to 6.5k), and resists (usually 650 to 900). most 2 x 1h WW barbs can dish it but cant take hits or damage. the 2 handed cleave build can take lots of damage and knock those inferno monsters back to hellPosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

i like skorn better and have survived longer than DW barbs in MP8+, especially in ubers. almost all the time im the last guy standing. i think using skorn is more challenging. looking at most of the DW barbs i see, they only have 35k life or so and low armor (6k-7k). my barb has 76k life and 10.3k armor (without enchantress). my damage is 161.4k dps using battle rage and not WOTB. resists are 980 to 1200, 42.5% crit chance, 427% crit damage, 51% life bonus, and only 3.00% life steal. my crits are between 500k and 700k consistent. Today i added more strength, attack speed, and vita. im now at 3025 strength, 1538 vita, 181.2k dps, 10.1k armor, 81.7k life, same resists, damage reduced from elites 7%. skorn is more fun and hits harder. i use cleave (broad sweep), rend (blood lust), ignore pain (ignorance is bliss), war cry (impunity), battle rage (marauders rage), furious charge (merciless assault). passives are ruthless, nerves of steel, and weapon master.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
