I like to use Treasure Goblins to set the bar upon which you can effectively solo a Monster Power.

I cannot view your profile so I cannot see your stats nor gear.

If you can kill Treasure Goblins consistently on a given Monster Power then you will have enough DPS on that Monster Power to quickly take down elite packs. This is important because the longer a battle goes on with elite packs the longer you will be subject to their affixes; such as plague, desecration, arcane, molten, fire chains, etc..

So as long as your DPS is high enough, and as long as you have between 5-6% Life Steal, then you should be able to do a given Monster Power effectively.

I'm leaving out resistances, albeit they are very important and you definitely should strive to have between 600-700 All Resists, but in the current game mechanic Life Steal is crazy good.

Having 45-60k Life doesn't hurt either.

Your crit chance is really low as is your vita. You want to aim for 30% or more crit and 45K or more HP. Your HP issue is a relatively ez fix: just sub in vita gems in lieu of str gems (you have a crazy amount of str). Pick up a dollop of crit chance via an ammy. I know that high str and high crit dmg ammy is a dps upgrade overall, but you really need that slot with at least 8.5% cc.

Hopefully this help you get an idea of what you need to look for.

I agree with everything @oOSlushyOo posted regarding your build but I would also like to add that I feel as though your attack speed is a little bit low, especially since you are a 2H.

As with @oOSlushyOo I would definitely get CC on your amulet, but I would also try to get IAS on your gloves. Given that your gloves are not a set piece they should be relatively easy to upgrade or craft. If you're lucky you can also get IAS on your amulet, but your primary focus on your amulet is CC.

First and foremost you only have 29.2k Life, that is no where near enough to be doing MP 10.

Assuming that your damage is 206k unbuffed (ie; no Battle Rage, no buffs) then you are just at the mark that people like to reach for dps in MP 10.

Your All Resists seem a bit low, and you could definitely do with replacing your Strongarm bracers with ones that have All Resist.

I would also love to see your Shoulders with some Vitality as well.

Otherwise it's a decent start, but you definitely need #1 more Life, and #2 more All Resist.

Lastly you can get more Attack Speed.

Remember, if you're dying then dps means nothing.

You need 5+ Lifesteal. Having only bloodthirst is not going to help at all. And more Life. And more AR. So on. There is a sticky on top in the Barb forum for gearing and other helpful guides. Check there first please.

Hey gang!

I, too, am in need of some serious advice. I am stuck on mp5. Mp6 is doable but takes a lot more death and time. My long term objective is mp10 and my short term objective is to gain paragon levels as fast as can be.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for starting this thread, aafon, and I appreciate you, Planet.

for DTWW build, yes. high avg damage weapon always on MH slot (your EF fear chance is "very nice").. use online calculator to calculate your actual tDPS..
