I think I have to call bs on the AH complaints. I'm in inferno with a barb, technically I haven't wiped my way all the way through act 1 yet, but have been on act 2 through a friends game, slow grinding there and dieing wave after wave to elites, but getting some good drops every few hours there at least.
I've been told I need XYZ stat numbers to move on. I look for these stats on the AH, I can not find a single piece with sufficient stats to make a dent past my 'found' gear unless I drop 200k to 500+k. Even then something to make a really solid improvement will probably cost around 1 mil per piece.
I'm right at the average power curve of the game IMHO. This means that the loot I'm pulling down is at the mid tier of the AH and I can't sell my drops at all. I price stuff out appropriately but its lost in a sea of 5000 other similar priced gears, and its just dumb luck if someone finds mine to buy, so I can't count on drops bringing in much of an income.
So really I just find some grind/farm technique, or I safe cash for a single gear piece that on its own, wont really do jack shit to help me move up. Either way, yes, the AH may have sped me through hell difficulty, but it really isn't pushing you along in inferno. Really it seems like the best bet is to die your way forward as far as you can in the plot until you can find a mob to grind/kill on and hope for a sell drop or a wearable drop.
But yeah, AH may speed you through Normal/NM/HELL on the cheap, but once you realize how shit the drops/cash is there vs inferno, there is no point in spending much time there at all.

May 21, 2012Ah thanks. Am 52 just getting into hell. I semi regularly co op but have done a lot solo too.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Making me rethink everything in hell. I might have to stop and grind some gear a bit now.
I got skellie king down but am getting chewed up in the ancient runes place (the jungle with the fallen soldiers that battle). No where to kite those groups back at all.
Thanks for the build, I some other ones to try out as well. I think my problem is that I get exploded in .2 seconds and I think 'defense defense defense' builds, but really I think I have to ramp up offence.
Stepping back I can see how the barb has a lot of 'x damge = health back' moves, which basically says smash the fuck out of things and that'll keep you up.
Time to try wrath of barb + earthquake combos on those packs for sure. Should be some fun experimentation tonight
