I refuse to play as a tank

Posts: 43
I was a damage dealing barbarian on normal/NM, but I switched to a tank after I get to Hell. I am mostly solo playing, currently I am on Act 3. I don't really die much, but playing as a tank is just sooooooooooo boring.

Than I been reading that tank with high resist is the only way to solo Inferno. So my question is... if I join a group can I build my barbarian as a damage dealer?

I'm finding that no matter what you do as a barb, you need to be able to take hits. There's no taunt/aggro hold in this game. So sword/shield with high resistance gear is the only viable way to do anything in hell/inferno.

Why not? It's about how YOU can finish the game man. No one can tank anything EFFECTIVELY in Inferno because it's designed to melt your face. I say play how you want to play.

Just don't quit and complain like 90% of the !@#$%^- Barbarians on here.

I use 2 handed whirlwind build in hell and will be doing so in inferno too.

Havent touched a sword and board.

The downside is you cant be carried, you have to build up your gear and do slightly easier runs than ranged classes.
