Using the classic run I am at 67M exp/h with a run cleared in 19mn (didnt find any shrine in that run :/ ).
The core areat -> Tower of the damned -> Bridge of Korsikk -> Keep lvl2 -> Areat Crater lvl2
I'll do more runs to get more accurate exp/h ^^

Depending on how much my gf interfers with the runPosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
I do a run in 25 to 35mn on mp5 but I clean a lot of areas and kill the key warden ^^
Its not the pure parangon lvling route but for now its has rewarded me well and usualy gives me over 50% or my parangon lvl.
I'll do a classic run tonight and tell you how much time it takes me and how much xp/h it could give me.

I lost a lot of AR with the patch because I didnt take time to craft better items than those I made (15k dps increase with shoulder/amu/bracers each was just too shiny for my eyes) but the dps increase was so big that it didnt realy matter, LS compensates for the loss.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
I think Im sitting around 400 AR and I farm on MP5 without any trouble, with WoTB I'm around 260k dps buffed and it just dies so fast >.>
If you can get a nice main hand weapon for 5-8mil it should be worth it, 2mil will be enough to get your 700ish dps off hand with the stats you need (paid mine 1M).

Hi!Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
If you switch to dual wielding, you wanna play with WoTB at a higher MP than your actual runs (otherwise its gonna be hard to keep a good uptime on WoTB). You'll have to find the MP that fits your char and your way of doing runs.
Switching to that kind of build should increase your DPS overall, WoTB gives you a huge DPS increase.
The movement speed increase you get from it will make you run realy fast (combined with sprint :D) and speed up your runs.
I advice you to buy a good main hand (axe/mace for 10%crit bonus) with the highest dps you can afford.
Your second weapon (dagger/sword for fast attack speed), you wanna get CHD (>80%), Life Steal (the closest to 3% the better), a socket, and in a perfect world you also want Str on it to boost your main hand dammage. Don't buy a 200dps one because it will gimp your wirlwind dmg ^^ You can find cheap 700ish DPS weapons (without str), 800+ DPS will cost you few millions.
About the build, I use this one:
Works like a charm ^^
I hope it helps (:

Its true that the Turret can be anoying on reflect dammage when you're running away or heading to a health globe low hp ^^ got me killed couple of timePosted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
I agree with you though very very fun build to play ^^
I'll give a try to the added life regen Shuriken can give while cced,
I'm not playing with vault so I'm used to being CC when cornered and so far traps were enough to save me from a certain death but I'll try

Hi!Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
I spent a lot of time playing with a grenade build which I found it very efficient for solo key and ubbers farming at higher mp.
I played around with Shuriken Cloud in the build but I didnt find it to be a very usefull skill, the damage was disapointing.
The bonus from the boar companion and its ability to tank (depending on the affixes though) or the guardian turret, tank wise, proved to be way more interesting to my char and made it tank like a truck than the Shuriken Cloud.
Combined with maximus on the sorc, you're less likely to be focused by all mob and makes your life easyer.
The DPS gain of Shuriken is just not worth the tankyness you'll loose from other skills (at least it wasn't for my char ^^).

I usualy click the chat box and like it like that while not in a party and it just links in the wind xDPosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
I guess it happens when not in a party or connected to a channel.

Glad my answer was welcomed ^^Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Hum I can give you a simple advice to test the upgrade
Find an EF on the AH with base CHD and DPS close to what you can afford (choose one with CDH of an equivalent value of the Emerald you would put inside) and link it in the chat ^^ (to no one if you don't wanna bother anyone :P).
Just log in game and voila
Or use a spreedsheet but if you're lazy like me, this trick will do the job

Hi I don't know if you're still having issues with WoTB uptime, but since 1.07 came out with its new shiny crafts I lost some resist and life at the expense of a nice dps increase allowing me, combined with life steal, to farm MP5 efficiently.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
I used to be in the exact same situation as you are, and I found that if you want to keep WoTB up there is few things to do:
- don't pick up anything but archon items - ilvl63 (knowing that what ever can be now crafted isnt realy worth picking up)
- increase monster power if you kill a pack with 1 WW (just by passing through) without WoTB enabled.
- managing rage is an other key to keep WoTB up, don't hesitate to spam Battle Rage & Sprint if you find yourself with too much rage, try to always be around 50% of your pool or less if there is a lot of mobs around. You'll see as you walk away even if you leave few mobs up they will keep you WoTB up by running into your tornados.
Im using bash as a fury generator which helps me keeping WoTB up (big time) when there is a quite area with few mobs or when I run back from a dead end. Just bash mobs while dumping your rage and see your uptime increased ^^
Thanks to this patch you got the icone when a leg drops so don't be afraid to loose sight of some mobs, just check minimap when you feel it might drop
Also, the experience increase with this patch on higher mp doesnt make it as less efficient as it used to be to farm on higher mp (given that you can kill rather quickly).
Give it a try, after 1 or 2 run you should feel confortable with it and having WoTB up all the time makes the farming and playing the barb way more fun ^^
About your possible upgrades, try to craft a better amu & bracer than what you're wearing first, I think its the cheapest upgrade you can make with a good dps increase potential.
Swithing to a Echoing Fury with a socket instead of LS can also give you a nice DPS upgrade (just take Bloodthirst instead of Superstition to make it for the loss of LS if you don't feel confortable without those 2.9%).
I hope I could help you or other people with WoTB uptime problems.
Have a nice day (:
