I have spent the last eon being a hellecopter on the barb side. I would like to mention a damn good helicopter at that!
Anyways, thats not the point of this post, the point is, ive been putting my monk off for a long time. Not that i didnt like him, its just barbs are tooooooooo OP to pass up for a farming tool. Now that my barb can farm effectively and is starting to make some gold, ive pulled out THE MONK!!!!!
Im going with the standard ToC sweeping wind build and would like to plow through a3 (solo) and stand my own in a3 in party play.
Today, i scrapped up some gear for my monk and took her for a spin, died a lot at first then got better but i felt my dps was way to low and wasnt doing my part in my party.
MY QUESTION/CONCERS ARE:
what key stats should i look for
What sort of weapons should I look at
how much resist should i have in mind
minimum stats/good stats
PS, i prefer FAST attackspeed much more than slow attackspeed hence using that dagger instead of a 1.2 mace with 800 dps and socket
also, i have inner sanctuary skilled since i was playing party and a +16% damage for the enite party in fights is pretty big imo
thanks, and i come in peace

in that order for any barb build.
for ww barb
res all (550+ for a3)
loh (900 minimum a3)
vit (30k hp)
crit damage (gravey)
cant speak to any other build as im not well versed in them
Sep 9, 2012i say this to about everyone:Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
550+ res all, preferably 650ish+
900 loh minimum, 1500 is gravey
the minimums make the build hard, but it will get the job done if played correctly. To rememedy this, use overpower crushing advance for another 35% damage reduction *huge*. This will force u to use a mighty weapon main hand (which makes fury managemnt smoother) and warcry>sprint>battlerage>sprint then carry on
the gear is only half the battle tho. the play style is key. The basics are... quite simple, but the depth of the build is huge. little things you can do in your play style to conserve fury, extend bezerk, gain fury, control mobs, ect is important for undgeared people or people sacrifiing survivability for dps

Mighty weapons are not that bad for fury generation, but you'll need a lot of Crit chance on your armor for compensation
i run a mighty weapon 24/7 atm cuz i got a lucky drop on it. I find fury management much easier with it. currently at 40% crit chance with passives, without br/bezerk
Sep 4, 2012agadabagada posted a message on Battle Rage: Marauder's Rage vs Bloodshed rune (Contains math)^^ that % changes based on skills. tornado sprint has a 20% chance. hota smash has an 80% chancePosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Sep 3, 2012dont sell ur monk gear..... just dontPosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
if their is one thing i miss atm its having more than 1 char that can face roll a3
the advantages of a ww barb are:
imo low gear requirements (got a friend through a4 inferno without much problems with an 18 mill budget
the weaknesses are:
the fury management can be a pain
single target is meh
just started a game of HoN. ill finish this later
Sep 2, 2012^^ geniousPosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
the best thing ive done with charge is mercles strike+br into the fray + hota smash + shout + insantiy+leap. between shout+leap+short cooldown charge and 50% crit chance.... its pretty funny. dont have much dps.... and duel wielding and i can melt elites in 4 player a3 in 1 insantiy. just endless 400k smashes all over :D:DDDDDD
and yes... 2h may be superior... but i cant stand 2h weps with their slow ass mofokin attackspeed. that... and the slow attackspeed makes u quite vulernable. i feel if i had 1-2 seconds between each smash... id be dead. the consistent heals from lifesteal+smash keep me alive in most cases

Thanks for your useless post. See when you are an adult you have to go to work. I just finished Act 2 then had to come to work so I figured while at work I would ask to see what other people's opinions were so I could learn from their trials and tribulations. I am sure that since you are so good at doing everything on your own that you have never used google for a search when you could just as easily venture out into the world on your own and see what you can find.
Doing a search on google is finding our on your own. Asking someone is skipping the search on google - or for the matter; here, there are plenty posts here that talk on this issue.
Your post is as dumb and useless as my advice is good.
See when you grow up, since you wanted to make this personal, you go to work and you hate wasting your time on posts like this
I tried to encourage you to test out for ya self, its a much better learning curve to try, fail figure out the possible solution. if none occur, come here and ask, someone might have a solution to help you. I would gladly post a long post on the subject if you had just tried first.
Hello sir, would you kindly step outside and go fuckyourself become you arnt wanted here:) thx bye
Aug 31, 2012yep. also, i forgot to mention. if u run overpower, u will NEED a mighty weapon main hand. U can either weapon swap as an axe with the same stats will give u more dps wiht weapon masters or just do what i do (900 dps mighty weapon with socket emerald) and just wield it 24/7Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
warcry>sprint through mob>cast br asap>sprint>swap to axe
the last part can be skipped if u want to just use a mighty weapon.
http://us.battle.net...14/hero/6471308 current setup. I baught the gloves for 1mil (previously a 9.5% crit chance 100 str, 50 vit) and the helm is my first set drop ever 2 nights ago, blew myfucking mind. was doing a3 without dying in 1hour - 1:30 before them (helm was 150 str/vit 4% crit chance
o! with the overpower build, use the superstition passive as ur 3rd passive. helps u incase u run out of fury get it back in 90% of the situation. sit in plauged, lighting, deso,lazer, molten for a split second and u have enough to sprint agian
Aug 31, 2012yes. switch ur weapons tho. put ur mace in ur main hand and ur axe in ur off hand. it has higher damage rangesPosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
also, upgrade ur rubies. thats easy
you may want more res all, but just play safe
actually... maybe not. ur rings/amys suck flat out... I baught myself 50+ res all, 3.5% crit chance rings for 1mill pre patch (prob less now) and an 8% crit, 60 res all amy for the same price pre 1.04. recently upgraded to 500 loh, 60 res all, 8 crit chance + str and damage amy for 10 mill pre patch.
These easy upgrades will give u the crit chance u DESPERATELY NEED and the res all that u could use.
for a little gravey, get better weapons to increase ur farming speed
If you are really struggling, put ww on ur left click (use shift to spin and dont click on mobs), and put in overpower crushing advance. pop it on every cooldown. I can stand in 5 lazers, plagu, deso,electicall that, u name it with 4.2k armor, 600 res all, 900-1500 loh. no problem

Apr 20, 2013agadabagada posted a message on WotB and Archon to Receive Changes, Act IV Density to be Buffed, What's Your Favorite Shrine?, Wizard Arcane Torrent Buildthe reason these archon/zerk builds are so viable atm is because we are no longer scraping to progress through the game wehre other runes were viable. The current state of the game is taht 99% of people are looking to farm most effeciently, therefore any buff with longevity is being usedPosted in: News
Apr 19, 2013agadabagada posted a message on WotB and Archon to Receive Changes, Act IV Density to be Buffed, What's Your Favorite Shrine?, Wizard Arcane Torrent Builderrr while i agree with most of what has been said by travis and above... perma zerk already requires exceptionally specific and good gear to maintain. for ww build, you need very high crit chance and potentially move speed + control of your char and tornados + movespeed + attackspeed. The end result is a gear and skill build that allows 1 skill to be viable. For the HotA build, it requires much of the same as previously listed, but MUCH more ephasis on each (more gear dependent). I think the nerf ww build got was fine. maybe a tad more nerf but not much. The idea of perma zerk shouldnt be looked down on if its highly gear dependent and requires a bit of skill to pull off.Posted in: News
for archon, its only effective for farming things your out gearing and highly dense areas (i know we are getting a density buff so i shouldnt say much on it)
just my thoughts
Dec 9, 2009bringing us back to a few key locations wouldnt always be a bad thing. It could help the lore in that it brings us back to story we last lived (transition, recolection). It could also be fun if they use it right. Id personally like 1 or 2 flashbacks to previous events that have happened. I dont feel that this should be happeneing at the end of the game however. The first act or two would be the most optimal.Posted in: News
We already have tristrem so thats good, but i think if they dropped us into a 2nd place, thatd be nice. Arret summet has been thrown out in one of these threads, but cant really as it is now a crater. maybe just a flash back during a convo with cain? an actual flashback where ur at a birds eye view watching fallen raid a city. Or, while going through the game, you can see a similar place from the vilage ur in. we dont have to be directly in the past event/place, but seeing it or being apart of it will have some effect on u.
As for this thread, we will not be living d2 out again. They have made it quite evident that this is not d2 with new eye candy, it is a new game, more lore, new mechanics. I personally feel, other than tristrem, there will be little BIG impact from other cities or previous events. just hope some is brought back to help bridge the connection
Nov 24, 2009is there any unveiling of the chat gem? i mean, i just read through this whole discussion for chat gem stuff lol.Posted in: News
the interview is same ol in a way. heres this to munch on, but wait, not too much now lol. i know they cant tell us, but i just dont temp myself to much with it :P. BUT THE CHAT GEM! AHHHH!
as for the interview itself, props. good questions, ehh answers. no blame anywhere except that im not playing lol
Nov 19, 2009answering ur q, Heros of New Earth (if you didnt know, not belittling) and savage 2 are pretty sick games. i prefer over torchlight.Posted in: News
imo, with all these patches and games coming out, bliz is spinning thier wheels a little TOOO fast for thier own good.
sc2 (the many), wow expansions, D3, new mmo, d2 patch, wc3 patch, delay, delay.
they are stretched a little tooo thin to be able to provide thier usual unsurpased quality at this quantity. if they sit on thier quality over quantity method, more delays, more people pissed, the such.
in short, if it comes any time soon, IT WILL SUCK. if it comes in a year-ish. it will be true bliz.
Nov 19, 2009hon and savage 2 are both legit games, a little more than torchlight imo.Posted in: News
a little mix in games
have my mele fighter, dota-ness, and diablo refresh-ish which i can playon my laptop :).
only reason im on so much right now is cuz im doin a law brief and its less fun than ud think haha. but i finished so ill be off soon :P.
Nov 19, 2009rly? their patching wc3? wow. been a while hasnt it? idk. out of the wc3 loop. hon's had be busy, with savage 2 and torchlight a lil. :P.Posted in: News
as cool as it may be to get a wc3 patch, y do they get precedence over d2 when ours was annonced wayyyy b4?
Nov 19, 2009agree and disagree. full hd d2 would be sick. id chuck my comp out of my room and hook up to the tv for that.Posted in: News
for torchlight, i disagree. i love the game, so their mgiht be some bias, but i prefer 3d. imo, 2d is almost gone. ur right, however, about the "wow-ish" graphics. it doesnt capture me. like, the game is pretty well paced, doin a lot of stuff at once, and stuff, but its wierd. something about it isnt 2d. 2d has me imediatly. cant drop it. torchlight, its like on the cusp. idk y. and they did steal a lot from d3. this could, however, be wat was in the original d3, not the current one.
food for thought. thats my opinion on torchlight, graphics, and the such.
im clueless on the d2 patch. i would chuckle if they just released a patch that actually did nothing. "hey joe, we need a patch out next week or we get fired" "ok, send a 1 kb file" "sweet, sounds good". before you know it, you have a blizz file with "hahaha" writen on it, thats it.
would be hilarious... then the pitchforks.
Nov 19, 2009im agreeing with u all here. throw a dog a bone and hell be happy. WHERES THE DAMN BONE?Posted in: News
its all psychological. we are, in a way, trained. Give a rat a pellet for pushing the button. then again, then again. after a while, u give a pellet every 2 times, then 3, then 4, then once in a while. make it random. before you know it, the damn rat is psychotic and has carpol tunnel before it gets half a pellet.
right now, the blizzard grasp is loosinging on us. I know this totally sounds like bs, and i know we arnt trained, but go with it. Connect how it works to how we stand.
we were addicted through there games. we got spammed by vids early on and news. now, once in a blue moon we get something. the news is the pellet, and blizzard is the biznatch lol.
people have been saying it, we are run thin, patience is gone. Bliz really needs to rethink this strategy of thiers. i mean, they can be gerks about it cuz we will all be buying the game, but its best to keep a postive, happy fan club.
imo, being a narcisitic asshole, move all the wow pple to diablo 3 for a MONTH. think of the stuff that can get done. pump this game out in the next 6 months, and have it ready for summer. what more could a company want than to destroy a million plus peoples summers?
we arnt sheep blizzard, we have gone through hell twice, can we get a little pat on the back?
