The sheer amount of ignorance and fallacy towards POE in this thread (and others too) is mind-blowing. Just absurd. Oh well, what can you do, people just cannot be even tiny bit objective here it seems.
And fyi, I'm absolutely not saying that being objective here means having to bend over and praise POE. Not by any means.

You need to get more crit. You only have, what, 22%? That's waaaaaaaaaaaaaay to little. Upgrade your rings and amulet, then maybe find a mainhand with a socket. This will give you a huge dps buff which also results in increased survivability since your lifesteal will work way better. Remember - at start amulet and rings as well as gloves are your main source of dps (not counting weapons themselves). You should aim to get most dps out of them while focusing to get your ehp from other pieces (chest, boots, shoulders etc)Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary

Ok, so I wrote a massive wall of text in to my notepad but I'm going to try to summarize it up a bit.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
So your ABSOLUTE main focus is to farm the lowest mp's as efficient as possible? Let's focus on this then.
In this case, your survivability is fine. Your problem with not gaining fury is mostly because of the low aps (and maybe to some extent the lack of experience in playing ww-barb?). This is going to be hard to change, since ias costs a lot, especially if you dont want to lose some other nice stats, like mf, cd, vit etc. Basically, only slots I think you could get cheap ias upgrades are your gloves, ring (replacing unity) and MAYBE your mh.
Have you considered getting a mighty weapon as your mainhand? I know, you would lose some mf, but your fury gain would grealty improve. This would compensate your lack of aps at least a bit. The main problem here is the loss of 10% cc, but tbth, I dont think it would matter. You would still have 45(?)% cc with battle rage and ruthless, right? So this might be the best solution for you as of now. Obviously, if you're planning to farm higher mp's you can throw that mighty weapon right out of the window, but since your main focus seems to be in lower mp's, I'd strongly recommend you to consider this option.
I'm gonna be honest here with you. If I were you, I would just forget mf, especially since you're pretty high paragon level already. Start to gear so that you can farm ~mp3-mp5 as efficient as possible. For that, you need more survivability and some other things I mentioned in my last post. I can give you some more advice if you choose to scrap the whole mf gear -thingy :).
As for some of your questions: your new oh is fine for lower mp's, yes. Don't get ef as your oh, they cost a lot and i'm not sure how the fear on hit proccs on oh (i've heard it doesn't in which case ef would actually not be that bad. I wouldn't go there tho.). You should always try to get a higher aps, but as said, it's not easy especially trying to maintain your mf and being on a budget at the same time. And yes, rltw ignores your oh's dps. This does not mean that you shouldn't get a high dps oh in the future tho, since rltw is not your only source of damage.
Phew, your case is a tough one. Sorry if it seems I make little sense here, it's really, really hard to give you an unambiguous solution here. Feel free to ask more and I will try to clarify things as good as I possibly can.

Hi malvar,Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
first of all, DROP UNFORGIVING, it's useless in pve. If you want to increase your fury regen, choose animosity. That said, I'd suggest you not using either of them. Use bloodthirst/nerves of steel/tough as nails/etc, depending on your gear.
Then to your gear itself. Your crit chance is good enough so that it should not cause the problem with your fury regen. The biggest issue i think is your attacks per second: you have only ~1,5. This results in your tornados ticking very rarely, thus not being allowed to crit often enough and also hindering your overall dps. There are couple of easy solutions:
1. Replace your offhand. You should get sword/dagger or axe with ias. While your at it, get lifesteal to your offhand also. This allows you to drop bloodthirst (which is what you should use instead of unforgiving ;)) from your passives, since you need at least ~5,5 ls on higher mp's and you achieve that with your belt & oh.
2. Replace your rings and/or amulet. Since this will most likely cost you a lot of money and many uber boss -runs, I would not suggest replacing all of them. You can get for example one new ring with your offhand if you have enough cash.
So tbh, I'd get a new offhand with str, cd, ls and a socket (with decent dps) and MAYBE a new ring with str, ias, crit chance, and avg dmg. Getting the lifesteal to your offhand is a key here if you want to play higher mp's, since it gives you an access to a defensive passive which counters your low surivability a bit. Your dps is good enough so that you wont need loh anymore, though it's not a bad idea to have some of it in your gear, like in blackthorne's pants as you do atm.
Also, if you want to play higher mp's gradually start increasing your vit. I'd start with shoulders and belt. Replace Hardened Wrath -rune in your War Cry with Impunity. Get all res to one more slot, so that you have at least ~500 unbuffed.
Not sure if listed everything I meant to, will add something later if anything comes to my mind.
I hope this helps.
