Can't see why are you dying. Your defenses seem to be just very slightly low if you drop War Cry (i'd try to get 2-4k more HP), but you have excess LS and with War Cry even the HP should be fine. Getting more DPS will increase you healing even further.
I have a feeling changing playstyle might do the trick. Did you try to play w/o shout, with HotA instead? Or Brawler passive?
maybe its my playstyle. i am pretty agressive. i was going to try dropping shout and drop bloodthirst for bralwer. ill test it out and get back to you. also i might use a couple of vit gems. or craft some shoulders and cross my fingers.
Yeah a better shoulder would be awesome, GL with it.
You should definitely get a bit more HP and if you still keep dying, just go for more all resist and/or maybe some physical. Those never hurt.
Also, pay attention to what kills you most often, then counter it. For example, fire kills - get fire resist or all resist. There are stats against anything (elite/melee/ranged reductions, resist/armor, HP). Sometimes 1 item makes a difference. Personally for me Litany does the trick, i hold on to it eventhough i could get a supercheap dps upgrade, but it keeps me alive
Still dying a bunch. it's usually being crowded by mobs also plague pools seems to destroy me. im going to try to replace my rare ring with a similar one but with AR on it. also going to go out of killing spree into rend with bloodlust. also bid on a lifesteal echoing fury to keep me at 8-9% lifesteal and drop bloodthirst for brawler. another question i had is should i use a cold SOJ instead of the yellow ring and find other areas to make up the AR. i play ww spec, and in terms of haste breakpoints i recall someone mentioning those to me, how do those work?
