Hi Kyraunus

My apologies, I didn't get a chance to log on until just now. Look for me in game if you still need help mate :)

You can always look for items on AH w reduced level requirement that are decent. Also if you play on public server games, you can get some nice hand-me-downs from your mates. Look for some of the gearing vids on the tube. They are very helpful because they list what you need for a basic ww build at varying budgets. PM me in game if you want some freebies. I can also hoard some reduced level stuff.

Change your Rend rune to Blood Lust. It's incredible how much it heals. It might make a big enough difference with just this one change. Enjoy it before it gets nerfed.

my tactic was pretty simple.

buy lvl 60+ gear with reduced requirement.

armor with life regen and vit
weapon with er, w/e. happened to get one with 200 vit and 800 dps

MP10 from A1 norm to A4 hell. I hit 60 about half way through A3 hell (where I am now). even the crappiest ilvl 63 gear with reduced level req beats anything below lvl 55 or so just on raw base stats.

This is one of the most helpful things I have heard. I decided that I would start using it based on the fact that it still dealt AOE damage.

Using this build;

Is pure awesomeness for me. Still maintains heavy AOE focus, dual wield, max fury, and on top of all that, I live more. Little sad to see Earthquake go, but it wasn't helping me in really large groups.

Just took down a Rare Elite pack and a Champion pack, with a few added mobs in the area. Never fell bellow 3/4 of my life.

Thank you so much Tenacious for this great tip.

Looks like someone helped you out. Already on level 60 and from 10K DPS to 101K DPS plus enough AS to hit your breakpoint. Swwwweet! Looks like Planets or Morpheus handy work. But I could be wrong. Congrats though. Now you're ready to Rock & Roll.

RozorX did a great job. Congrats to Morpheus and Eclipse for helping a fellow Barbarian.

I noticed you have 589 AR + 60 from 2 ik bonus, have you thought about dropping the AR & PR from the BT pants and going with double str / vit rolls? you can get a fairly decent pair of bt pants with double vit rolls for cheap nowadays

Pretty jealous of your necklace tbh. It isnt amazing, but i've done around 200 crafts on amys and havent found anything better than what im wearing now.
