Yes, I am going to take advice from this scrub. I have been on my barb since day one. Before mp levels were introduced. Been playing back when barbs were the worst class in the game, and DH/Wizards had to carry barbs. Look at my time spent versus yours. Then you have the nerve to say "what a lousy barb". Oh my bad, you were talking about your barb. Nvm.

Correction. My barb is above average. Your barb is dual wield credit card ridiculousness and/or flipping ah barb. I never had patience nor fun flipping items. So I never did it. Basically my barb is 90% stuff that dropped and I traded for this gear. My barb would have better gear, but I have literally gotten NOTHING of value for like 6-8 months (basically garbage drops 100% every-time I decided to farm).

I have more strength and resistances than you. You have more hp and less resistances.

stack AS and its great. a skorn priced 500m would perform better even compared with 500m offhand + 500m mainhand. at 1.8AS, tdps is pretty much the same but hota and rend have double damage.

so yeah skorn rock :) but i can see myself going mighty weapon + shield after ROS :D

I use a Skorn when I'm grinding out XP in MP10 but for my Uber carries I use a DW with HoTa hybrid build.

Skorn is a great weapon with its advantages, just like a DW setup has its own advantages. Every player is different so just play how you want with what you want.

Personally I'd go with Skorn in a regular XP/Loot grind and then use my DW in the Uber setting.

........right......because you have 3 slots of all resist + 2pc ik set, and you're using bloodthirst. how much did you pay for the entire set? very curious

You don't seem to understand that when I net so much life leech defensive stats are not required. If i net more exp/hour than you my barb has higher efficiency. I paid 12bil for my set, gold that I earned. What's that got anything to do about it?

On the higher end of things a DW should outperform a Two-handed but most people can't reach that high. For an average all the way to mid-high its pretty close. The main difference on higher end is 100% CD and echoing fury's +.25 attack speed, so take advantage of it if you can.

Things might change up a bit in RoS, I wonder if they are adding weapon range and how no ITF will affect DW vs Skorn.

this is true, for high end players with better gear that can use 1 slot of life steal, you're using blood thirst + witching hour, it's great, but the fact that you rely on bloodthirst tells me you don't last long in group games, my point is here, get a second slot of lifesteal that's not blood thirst, switch to Berserker Rage or Brawler, and you'll understand why Bloodthirst sucks

....MORE exp than me? I got my barb from 90 - 100 in 6 hrs thanks to Nubtro's testing and Chazhangs route in act 2. And I haven't felt like leveling a second to 100 lately because I have no motivation. 12b....and my second barb(Jeb) roughly 1b?(skorn & shoulders weren't part of the set I built) can last as long as yours and may even be quicker, don't know, don't care. The point is, you over paid for a !@#$ty set and chased paper dps that means nothing.
