(Gear) VS (Gear) / Barb Upgrade
Posted 29 November 2012 - 04:45 AM
Sage#1376 Vviktor is the character I'm talking about.
I'm mainly looking at Chest/Helm upgrades, but if you see anything else that's urgent feel free to let me know.
My main problem is discerning what the deciding factor is between gear pieces. For instance, between Andy, Mempo and IK helms, what makes one better than another? They all seem pretty damn good (and expensive) And what ones should I be aiming for? Between Tyrael and IK? Lamentation, IK or Witching Hour? Thanks in advance for opinions and advice.

Edit: Just saw the movement speed on chest. So if you got movement speed on boots you could save yourself from the really expensive Lacuni Prowlers, until you replace your chest.

i use andy for mp2 farming but on 3 or 4 i get owned using that, not sure if its really the extra fire damage or the lack of defensive stats, andy is insane dps boost for such a cheap item. IK and Mempo are quite similar. IK is more defensive and it adds up with 1 or 2 more piece, other than that you are just trading crit for attack speed. You can get mempo with crit but it is very expensive but you cannot get IK helm with attack speed, so end gear mempo will have better DPS.
Your ring with the gem is to be replaced first, yes 50% crit damage is huge but stam and vit only? I think you could do better. look for average damage 40-60 those adds a lot of dps too even though the main stat is really now. overall I think I like it, its a shame to replace the belt with IK belt. I would go boots helm if I were you or boots chest if you can afford it. Chest IK is quite expensive

Also, I replaced that ring just now 30 Min Damage, 120 Str, 70 Vit, 4 Crit Chance and 30 Crit Damage. The belt isn't going anytime soon I don't think as I am back in the gutter with gold. Waiting for the next find to sell you know. I'll update more once my character sheet stops acting up.
Overall I'm sitting at 2500 Str 1100 Vit and 140k DPS unbuffed (counting passives) will update as we go.

I might be wrong, but i distinctly remember reading recently that assumption of more MS = more tornadoes is incorrect and the quantity of tornadoes spawned is in fact unaffected by the MS. I'll try to find and link it, it was some testing / theorycrafting recently, either here or on some other barb forum

time to change your boots. i guess u have to go IK since you are broke
high end ice climbers and firewalkers are too expensive
at least IK is pretty standard even with vit/str random roll it wouldnt be as pricy as good firewalkers. good ice climbers is the best u can go for but the most expensive (300m ish)

i wished you went for mempo or IK helm though... andy is not really the go to item for barb. very lacking of defensive stat. though running low level mp with andy is fun, the nova helps you clear monster faster.

You are on the right track, but i'll parrot what others have said here, +MS is going to help your WW build a metric TON, you really, REALLY want to hit that 25% is boost on MS, esp on a WW build.
