New inferno barb, little help
Posted 03 November 2012 - 05:05 PM
A few things before the responses saying i need to spend millions, my budget is about 500k-1million (max) because i normally try and get drops myself.
I am also playing with my wife (who is a DH) and infact thats the main reason i am making the barb (when i play with my wizard we are both fairly glass cannon so we fall over a bunch lol). We can do MP2 fairly easily with only reflect damage being the bane of our existence.
I've seen a bunch of builds in the past about shield barbs just taking a beating or 2h rend barbs who just don't care how much damage they take. Want to stay melee though, while the whole weapon throw thing looks like a ton of fun I want to be in the thick of it.
Any help is appreciated.

build for armor, all resist, phys resist vitality and life % where u can get it, and try to get some crit + attack speed on rings amulet/gloves. attack speed only for low budget stuff will help a lot =) good luck!

I am not really woried about the damage I deal as long as it isnt useless.
I am asuming that LoH is > life steal at the lower dps numbers.
Excuse the not having the right rune names but i am typing between dinner and desert with the inlaws lol.
Now for the sword and board as i understand it:
+ armor shout w/ all res,
ignore pain with the life gain rune
Wrath of the beserker cause its well wrath of the zerker.
Frenzy as the generator
Sismic slam (havnt really used this yet, as i get it its for the knock back and AoE
rend with life gain?
Butwhat about passives. This is the part i am really confused on (Nerves of steel (+armor = vit one), + armor passive plus? Not reall;y sure.
Will check back after dinner.

http://us.battle.net...988/hero/808013 <----- my build (FYI nearly every piece of gear was bought off the AH, none of it cost more than 700k)

I am rolling http://us.battle.net...kPic!bVe!YccZbZ right now although thinking about getting rid of rend for something else as unless I am in an AoE scenario it doesnt seem to be that helpful.
I found an 850 dps axe in my stash with some Lifesteal that I will use till i find something better. just waiting the next couple hours before i hit 60 (just hit 58) and see where my stats actually fall. I'll post my profile once i hit 60.

I had half descent gear for about half my slots (weapon, shield, belt, boots,legs) but the weapon is where I am doubting as i know LoH is better just havnt had time to really look at the AH.
I just tried MP 5 inferno and it wasnt so bad, probbaly go down to mp 3 with the wife and see how that plays out.
As a shield barb, other then LoH and standard str, vit, AR what am i looking for in upgraded stats (other then the obvious shield and weapon)
oh yeah profile
seismic slam has changed about 5 times to different spells and rune combos but the rest of my kit I seem to like right now. just not enjoying seismic slam...any other suggestions?
edit: bad spelling i have

Bracers can roll with crit, gloves all 3 as cc and cd, rings and necks as well can roll with all 3... if you're intent on sticking with the tank spec, keeping up your all resists and vit is super important... looking for life % and regen as extra stats on your other slots is a priority too, but i wouldn't make that an immediate priority every bit will help eventually tho good luck!

You also have enough life where when you get your AR up to around 400, you can consider swapping your vit gems for str gems to help your dps out.

There are good ones for as cheap as 100k. Only the ones with crit are expensive.
After that I'd go for IK Gloves and Belt as they are cheap too and very good.
