    Yeah, Raekor+Boulder was really popular pre-2.1 patch.  I am trying to work with a new build that helps synergy with it like before.

    ::Edit::  lol, didn't catch that you were actually making a "funny haha"

    The new Heart Slaughter seems like a good choice!  Is the 29% Elite damage and 130% CritDmg loss worth the switch though?

    Yeah, its getting frustrating.  Its awesome to see 120M crits from one attack on Elites, but I feel like I balanced my gear well enough that I should be performing a little better than I am.  I kinda think I should farm for a Boulder Breaker or Fury of the Vanishing Peak and roll Fire EQ/IK/Seismic.

    I use Cave-In so it already pulls in targets.  Plus a a Physical ESS of Johan.

    I am currently running a Physical EQ/IK/Boulder Toss build.  I have a 300th with 47% Ancient Spear damage and +14% on both boots and helm.  +29% Elite on Sun Keeper and +15% on Unity.  Also +40% Physical from Amulet and Strongarms.  Dumped paragon into Max Fury to boost its damage too.  With the fury geneating Ancients and Earthen Might passive it takes about 10-15 seconds to unload a maxed out boulder at 182 Fury.

    And it just feels like I can't push past Grift 23.

    Should I trade in my Sun Keeper/300th for a Boulder Breaker or switch from Physical to Fire/Cold?  I love this build but I can't push past T5 right now.

    What is your opinion on Boulder Toss?

    Well, sincerely, I think they are more aware of the problems with the game than most people would like to think. They simply haven't been able to get around to all of it. Things just take man-power...

    In my experience on the PTR, Call of Arrest on Leap is overkill with the pulling. I used Iron Impact for increased armor. Toppling Impact even worked well because the pull counteracts Leaps knock back.

    I tried out a Physical Leapquake/Boulder build last night. My gear is nowhere optimized, but with Strongarm, 300th, and Cave-In rune, I was having a lot of fun!

  • posted a message on (Just for Fun) OP Passives
    Remember way back when D3 was still in closed beta? Back at Blizzcon 2010 I think it was... they showed off passive skills. They said how they didn't want passives to sound weak. Jay Wilson said it himself. This is more ad lib but it was something along the lines of "This passive gives me 0.1% more armor... 0.1% doesnt sound very awesome. So when we look at passives we're gonna be doing 50%, 100%, big numbers to make them feel powerful." I jotted down a few ideas that would go along with this philosophy. Granted these probably wouldn't all work. Just wanted to share some fun with you all. So here we go!

    Pound of Flesh - Health globes heal you for twice as much and grant +50% increased damage on your next fury spender.

    Ruthless - +40% crit chance and +200% extra crit damage for enemies below 25% HP

    Nerves of Steel - Each point of Strength now provides 5 armor. Now immune to Fear.

    Weapon Master - One-Handed weapons increase attack speed by 20%, crit chance by 5%, and elite damage by 10%. Two Handed weapons increase Area Damage proc chance to 100%. Mighty weapons provide an additional bonus by doubling the effect of socketed weapon gems.

    Inspiring Presence - Shouts become permanent.

    Berserker Rage - Gain 1% crit chance for every 5 points of Fury.

    Bloodthirst - Rend damage increased by 100%. Bleed affixes from weapons increased by 300%. Heal for 5% of all bleed damage.

    Animosity - Gain 10 Fury per hit with Fury-generating abilities. You no longer degenerate fury but rather generate 2 fury per second.

    Superstition - Reduce all non-physical damage by 30%. Ranged and magical attacks have a chance to be deflected.

    Tough As Nails - +75% more armor from gear. Thorns deal 1500% of your total armor value.

    No Escape - Weapon Throw damage increased by 100%. Critical hits restore all fury spent by Ancient Spear.

    Relentless - When you are below 35% health, become immune to crowd control, gain 25% increased movement speed, and increase your Life per Hit and Life per second by 200%.

    Brawler - Increase attack range by 8 yards. Gain 20% increased damage as long as there are 3 enemies within 20 yards.

    Juggernaut - Reduce crowd control effects by 60%. Sprint now breaks stun, freeze and immobilize effects and breaks down the Waller affix from Elites.

    Unforgiving - Gain 50 Fury when you lose 30% health in less than 3 seconds.

    Boon of Bul-Kathos - Spending 20 Fury reduces the cooldown of all Rage skills by 5 seconds.

    Earthen Might - Avalanche and Earthquake grant 30 fury. Earthquake no longer costs Fury. Reduce both cooldowns by 2 seconds for every enemy killed by either skill.

    Sword and Board - Blocking an attack generates 10 Fury and automatically casts your main Fury spender for free.

    Hrothgar's Inheritance - You can now dual weild 2 Handed Weapons.

    Rampage - Gain 5% increased Strength for 10 seconds after killing or assist killing an enemy. Can stack 10 times.

    If you use the new OWE then you'll have 30% of all single resists as all resist. And 8500 armor is a big deal...
