You can have either APD's or Bracers of Destruction in cube / wear.

Unless you plan on using bloodthirst passive, you need Life per fury spent on belt as a stat to heal yourself. A gg 6second ancient cassius pride would be best, i dont even have one of those yet tho. You cant always get what you want :(.

Highly recommend a good helfire (with a decent passive) for amulet slot mine has rampage and great stats. None of the barb passives are particularly OP or UP in my experience, so you can kind of pick and chose here. However their are decent alternatives to helfire such as a GG flavour (if they even exist) or an eye of elitch.

The rest of the gear is virtually a must. I have tried pushing with the 2h variant, using fury of the vanished peak and having furnace in the cube. While this variant is great for speed farming 90s, it just doesnt have the toughness to push up to 100+.

As usual with barb look to get as much all res as possible if pushing, specially on chest, legs, boots and shoulders. Diamonds in all pieces (except weapons).

You want a good amount of CDR, however too much CDR and you start to lose too much important dmg stat such as crit chance and dmg.

I have 50% and it seems to work fine, if you have CDR on both weaps, shoulders, gloves, and maybe on one of your rings, that should be enough.

Basically having lots of CDR = good uptime on Ignore Pain, and more uptime on Wrath of the beserker. However i wouldnt go as far as trying to get Perma Ignore pain, it can be done, with gogok and more CDR, but you lose out on too much dmg. Just play a little more careful for the 1-2 seconds ignore pain is down, if you follow the playstyle i describe further down, you should be fine defensively speaking.

Build Guide

This is a variant on the gr 90 speed build (link below) that i followed while testing on PTR. I loved the build so much, and wanted to find a viable version to push 100 and above with. I have since done so much to my own surprise. Using slanderer and little rogue, as well as APDs, allows you to build up enough toughness to survive in higher GR's where the 2h version simply cannot.

I have just downed a GR 100 with 950 para and only 4 peices augmented. rank 43 on leaderboards at time of completion.


First and foremost while trying to push with this build, remember you are using APDs. Constantly be looking for big groups, dont settle. Trying to take on 1 or 2 elite mobs alone will get you killed. You need big density to proc APDs if you wanna kill Elites. Or just take on regular sized white trash mobs and skip elites alltogether. Some RGs can be rough, ideally you want ones that spawn adds.

You should have enough attack speed to get charges going and keep up your weapon setbonus stacks up. If the stacks do drop in transition, just remember to play it safe till you have the stacks up again. You need that 30% armour. A pro tip here is you can use battlerage as a furyspender while moving between mobs, it will keep up istavans (weapon set) at 5stacks, without dumping all your fury.

Make sure you charge out of the mob (or to a circle of power procced from follower ring) before casting that juicy 5stack slam. This will get maximum dmg from your zeis stone of veangance / no escape passive.

Legendary gems can be swapped around for devensive/utility such as esoteric or gogok, but honestly if you wanna go high you need the dmg.

That's all folks happy rifting! First time submitting a guide, and tips or feedback is helpful thanks.
