I'm currently in a bit of dead end when it comes to gear upgrade, so I've decided to ask for some advice .
I can't post links yet so my profile is: /d3/en/profile/BatuKMan-2108/hero/21692210
Currently WW barb paragon 26, EU server.
I'm able to farm MP1, ACT 3 easily with one shot everything except elite (1-2min), however I feel the loot I get from Alkaizer runs on MP1 is very poor with an average of ~0.5 legendary/run, bumping to MP5 I can double the average but it takes me soooo long as I don't do enough damage.
Now if I was rich this would be easy but with a ~10M budget I can't seem to get any bang for the buck.
I think my base stats are not completely out of balance but I can't seem to upgrade without compromising too much.
If budget wouldn't be a problem then I would have a Mempo of Twilight with CC and high Str, IK chest and belt high Str, Ice Climbers with high str and vit, Lacuni's with CC and AR, Rare gloves with CC, CD, IAS, Armor and Str, amulet and rings with CC, CD, Average Damage, Life %, Life on Hit, IAS, high str shoulders and pants with high vit, str and sockets. Weapons with be MH, 1000+ DPS with CD ans socket and OH 600+ DPS with CD, socket, LS and Vit/Str.
Now stop dreaming and back to the real world I've tried different weapons and I can't boost my DPS high enough, I've tried:
1. Two Mighty Weapons - with CD and socket, couldn't find above dps to ~850 DPS, total CD buffed with nearly 500%. Didn't work, 51k damage, too much Fury generated to keep WoTB;
2. 2H Skorn: with 324 Str, 194% CD plus socket, 1250 DPS, total CD buffed ~400%. Didn't work, 82k damage, depleted Fury too fast and it's too slow to regain dispite the 1.3 Attack Speed, couldn't keep WoTB;
3. Bul-Kathos set: MH 1085 DPS, 284 Str, OH 850 DPS, 185 Str, 94% CD. Didn't work, 47k damage, low CD, doesn't do enough damage as my overall CD was below 180%. Maybe a socket would help a bit but I don't think it's worth the investment.
My current set-up is not optimal but better than all the above, I manage to get WoTB as long as I'm fighting at least 3 monsters, problem is I take so long to kill elites in MP5 that I get stuck a lot with just one loosing the WoTB.
I'm happy with the tornadoes Proc and I can clear mobs with ease, also with 1200+ LoH, 5.9% LS and 50k EHS I can survive standing in desecration and 3 arcane beams on MP5 without worrying about dying, however taking 3-4min per elite pack or more if they have extra health or shield is not acceptable it shouldn't take me more than 1-2min.
I would appreciate some help on how to boost my Damage within budget and without transforming myself into a glass cannon. Any constructive critics will be greatly appreciated..
