Don't know how long I'll stick with it, but particularly for blasting through the campaign the first time around, that fury gen is going to make things go quicker.
I'm going it with an IK3 lol... I think that the fury bonuses have been moved to the 3-set bonus rather than the 5.
Plus this is only a temporary solution as by the time you hit 63-64 the current IK (unless rerolled at mystic) might start wearing thin.
Honestly, with the changes I am seeing (at least in PTR) I can still effective WW (even on single targets). The issue is retaining the DPS which I assume the IK 5 is supposed to help. IK3 = No need for unforgiving which is huge.
my issue is, that I don't feel that most of the barb passives are very compelling anyway so I'm not to worried about going in with an IK.
I am seriously considering "retiring" my main barb and re-leveling completely. I want to keep my legacy barb a legacy...and not a hodge podge of new and old itemization (but that's just me).
Something tells me the game will be way more "fun" if I start with a new character. I re-leveled a monk and a wizard fully in PTR and that is definitely the vibe I got.
We'll see. Honestly when there is no trading or ladders, it is basically a lottery based game. Getting barbs to GG level is now a question of time invested and not really clever trades or AH moves. Add a decent RNG base....and you have the perfect recipe for "blurred lines" when it comes to a "good" barb and a "bad" one.
Some people are going to have great luck and be GG.
Some people will invest a lot of time to be GG.
I am fully confident that all of us will propagate to a similar build and similar gear...but now it's more of a question of "when" instead of "how".
