Mannercookie's Insanity Barb Build, Types of Density on the PTR, Tyrael Fan Art

Mannercookie's Insanity Barb Build
Mannercookie has created a very nice build for the Barbarian, which has the purpose of making your Warrior's Rest runs that much easier. At first the point of farming the spot was Demonic Essences, but as Mannercookie found it's actually a pretty decent spot for farming gear as well.

The build uses a very precise combination of Fury generation and consumption, having a HotA core and is meant for the well geared players. Don't forget to drop your feedback in his topic. There is also quite a bit of advise about gearing up your Barb!





Types of Density on the PTR
Vaneras asked players on the EU Battle.net forums which type of density they prefer - a more "clumpy" or more scattered type?

Hi guys,

I would just like to remind people that the PTR is a testing environment, and thus a whole lot of testing is going on there. The things tested on the PTR should never be considered as set in stone, so please be careful not to jump to conclusions when reading PTR patch notes - things change quite often on the PTR due to the iterative nature of the development process.

If you see something in the PTR patch notes that you do not like, then the best thing you can do is to log into the PTR and test the content in question, and then afterwards come to the forums with your feedback on why you like or dislike something.

In regards to the monster density changes you have seen on the PTR so far; these have undergone a lot of iteration, with a lot of experimentation thrown in as well. The developers were not entirely sure if players preferred more clumpy density with larger monster groups, or a more scattered density with an overall increased stream of monsters, so the developers tried different things on the PTR to see what would happen. It is fairly clear from the feedback we got so far that the monster density and spawn pacing we tested in the earlier PTR stages are preferred, so that is most likely the goal we aim for in patch 1.0.8

    I forsee Hota being nerfed or into the fray. 1 of them cause there are so many Hota spamers these days. Blizzard wants the barb to feel like a " Okay ama stock up on rage then do massive burst for 3 -4 sec" Not " Oh lets stack crit then just faceroll with fury dumps thanks to into the fray" thank god i dont use Hota or into the fray and yes. Still doing MP10 just fine with no deaths :)

    Blizzard would never nerf the barb since that's 90% of the players these days.

    Honestly, 90% of D3's problems can summed up in three words: "Crit is broken."
