Aug 23, 2012Iplayatankbarb posted a message on .// String of Ears (Reducing Melee by 20%)... How much does it help?I noticed a huge difference when I got rid of mine way back. It is a big stat in my opinion and I would also recommend the Thunder God's Vigor belt for your next belt upgrade if you would like to keep that stat. If not finding a good STR/VIT/AR belt isnt too hard to find just remember your life steal is gonna come from that belt and finding one with str vit and res all AND life steal is gonna cost you a pretty penny. I believe the thunder god belt runs about 50-80m atm so you might want to wait a week or two for things to calm downPosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Aug 23, 2012I run with about 1100+ AR, 1500 LoH and 54k health clearing act 3 with minimal deaths, I've tried out many different of the buffed fury spenders and so far I really like Hammer with Birthright. I really like the fact it can hit more then 1 target, crits for around 100k for me and can drop yellows and loot or health globes to keep me up.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
When I run clearing mobs for xp or the next spec I want to try out is an AoE type spec like this.
Jul 16, 2012I loveeee the sword and board tank spec, I normally run with the standard leap frenzy WotB revenge ignore pain/ground stomp and warcry. I'd like to switch out leap for charge but I'm going to wait until I get some more dps because I cant charge through walls from wallers :P. In any case, to all these geared barbs out there what pieces should one look for first to build this kind of gear? I usually run about 1-2mil gold on any given day but I'm waiting until I sell this amazing 70 AR ring I got. My stats thusfar are...46k health 7.5k armor 900-1000 AR 16k dps with 20%crit chance 183% crit damage with Ruthless, Berserker Rage and Weapon Master. (Weapon is a mace.)Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

Karalius in my tank set with 1.5k LoH Molten, Plagued and even Desecrator heal me for more than they damage while OP:CA is up (~50% up time with high crit). 1.2k RA 80k HP and tank spec it really isn't a big deal to stand in elite abilities.
But you are right in that it is boring which is why I am dual wielding as of 1.03 and just burning things down. In 4p I will usually switch to some tank gear though because Zerking things doesn't really work as well.
If you want to main barb you might as well just be flexible and have two sets of gear. I never die and gear/spec appropriately for my party and act.
well im glad i know someone can tank everything lol I am somewhat confused as to how your stats are that good tho. >.> you must be rich! haha. I finally got up to 2mil gold and I am considering finding an LoH wep for act 3... although I did manage to get to ghom and i yeah pretty much had no chance.

You sure do. Because somehow every streamer with better gear cant do that. I couldn't do that. But you magically can!.
You will barely get enough gear for tank spec with that money.Quote from Iplayatankbarb
Its a tough champ pack nonetheless and I could see everyone running in to trouble with it in a 4 player game, with or without a tank. Ive come to the conclusion that if Ryno isnt having any trouble with those stats and clearing inferno then I have something to shoot for as a tank. Yes it would be nice to drop 2-5 mil on a good dps build and fly through solo inferno. I personally dont have that kind of money and I would prefer to tank for friends and we progress together. My second barb that I need the level 60 with 2 barbs achievement will probably be a DW double tornado spec unless it gets nerfed. I like my tankie ways but both of you are right about good ways to clear inferno.
You will definitely not get even remotely close to ww/tornado spec with that little gold.
I'm not good at saving my gold like everyone else. Even in wow I only have like 13kg which is just there to cover repairs. If you have 100 million gold good for you but thats not how I play. If I find a 10 mil item and sell it, I'm probably going to spend half of it or more as soon as I get it. I dont need that much gold, I will just proceed with selling bad to average gear for under 200k and buying a piece or 2 at a time.

Jul 4, 2012I can't Lol @ the 8k dps of someone playing HC. I appreciate all the input from everyone and I agree and disagree with a few things. I play a tank barb for a reason. To stand in shit and not get 1 shot all the time. Yes, you are correct I cannot tank everything but I don't want to just give up and go damage much like a lot of barbs out there. My 1h that I use with my shield isnt good, Ive gotten a like 200-300 LoH and ive seen a bit of a difference in the gameplay, nonetheless ima prolly stick to my act 2 farming until I get enough gold for a better wep and some pieces with higher str/vit/all resist. From the looks of this game in general you either go glass cannon and could die to silly things, or go tanky and tank for someone who kills them for you. When you solo as a tank or have no one to play with, you do often sit there for quite some time until you can kill the champ pack. I'm just one of those players who likes to have no issues with white mobs but can laugh at my glass cannon friends when they die 100 times. I just think the skull cleavers might be a little OP and need a slight damage nerf or somehow make it so they dont all attack at once. Just think of it as illusion mobs all spamming illusions at once, or being chain frozen like it was planned by an enemy team. Its a little annoying and a tad bit rediculousPosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Jul 3, 2012So, I play a tank barb(LOL). 970-1100 all resist with 11k damage, 9k armor and 49k health. This was my first chance to hop into act 3 alone and give it a go. I did just fine until I got 5 stacks and came across a pack of normal(trash mob) Swift Skull Cleavers... bout 10 of them got surrounded and 3-4 shot before I could do anything. I walked around the next corner to find a Swift Skull Cleaver champ pack with Arcane Enchanted, Vortex, Desecrator, and Illusionist. I was curious if anyone has any tips as to how to kill this pack as a barb, I was in the keep depths level 2 and couldnt corner a few of them to chunk em down. I don't have any LoH atm but I plan on getting a pretty nice wep with lots of it soon. They killed me so fast and I spent 50k gold and 25 min trying to kill them without any success.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
P.S. I have like 23% chance to block with a helm of command. Stuff I put on the AH doesnt like to sell and I may be over pricing but I usually spend the gold I make fast so getting a lot of money for a good 1h with lots of LoH may be difficult :/ ( PLEASE HALP!!! )
