S&B QA - Part 13

only other viable build for barb is a rend/hota build. So pick your poison...or do a hybrid build like many of us here


Speaking of that, do anybody here run a rend/hota SnB build ? I would like to see some profiles to give me some different ideas.

Until I find a good WH, and a LS sword


What stats are you looking for?

IK set is a crutch - RagingKoala2013


Tbh, I haven't looked that hard at replacing certain parts of my gear. The gear that's on her now is really just to fill slots. I spend my time these days on the WD and Wiz.

But if IK set is a crutch, than so is LS :)

Lets all run around using Rend only for healing.

It's doable. Seen a Skorn barb do ubers + mp10 with Rend only.

I ran some group ubers earlier today for giggles and swapped out ww and sprint for hota/smash and overpower/killing spree I believe and also dropped brawler for bloodthirst.

Went fairly well but not being able to move through mobs getting the 5 stack really sucked big time.
So many abilities and so few slots :(

if you have the gear for it, 1 slot of lifesteal is very viable, even without rend bloodlust

Ive tried one slot for ubers (use op/ks) but if rend doesnt crit before a pickup/tornado/rocks im done.

Never tried without bt, figured the damage output wasnt enough to offset the sustain.

wheres my gold from selling those items, I also saw the "NUB" before I was disconnected via internet problems. so I don't think you deserve them

Hi Guys,

S&B seem fun, a lot tougher than DW setup.
But I do miss the high HOTA damage from DW (1.4Mil vs 900K HOTA Crit number).

Anyway, is another 7% Elite DR from a Litany ring worth?
I'm thinking whether to replace my rare ring "Fate Hunger" with a 160 STR / 40%+ CD Litany ring.

Just depends on your play style. Your damage reduction numbers look to be average and everyone seems to be ok around there. If you want more of a cushion then go for it! :)
