WoTB/Crit Build...(1st try at a build)

Posts: 313
So I thought I'd try some theorycrafting after seriously delving into the barb's skills today. Basically I want to keep WoTB up as long as possible while critting like its my job.

I've always been a crit hit hoar, so there it is...any thoughts?

As far as a crit build goes, I would recommend replacing Whirlwind with Hammer of the Ancients. HotA has a crit bonus built into the skill, and is a great source of spammable single target damage, which your build looks like it could use, seeing as you already have Overpower and Cleave.

Are you set on a weapon type? If you're trying to get every bit out of your Thrive on Chaos rune, using a Mighty Weapon with the Weapon Master passive is probably the way to go. I'd recommend replacing Boon of Bul-Kathos with Weapon Master regardless, just because you have to wait until 60 to even get the former. Even if you don't use Mighty Weapons, Weapon Master will give you 10% more crit if you choose to go with an axe/mace.

Looks like a fun build, I hope my suggestions help play to it's strengths.
