06/06/2012 06:17 AMPosted by WuviusI was able to finish A1 with just Str + Vit. I had around 30-40k health (don't remember exactly), and about 14.5k dps with a 800 dps weapon. Just used WotB to melt most blue/yellow groups with Ignore Pain. However, that won't be nearly enough to get you anywhere in A2, but it'll work to clear A1.
In my (limited, not by choice :/) experience with Inferno, I'd say either go back and farm Act 4 Hell as fast as possible until you have enough gold to buy all the stupidly overpriced stuff on the AH, or just reroll.
I figured I'd just farm Act 1 Inferno but I think it's way too tedious and time-consuming to actually make any money. I roll through white trash mobs with my crap DPS tank build, and I do quite well on many elites or champs, but it seems like every time I get 2 or 3 stacks of NV, I come across a mob with like, Fast, Molten, Frozen, Plagued or some ridiculous nonsense and I spend literally 20 minutes trying to down one pack. It's just not economical at all.
If you have reliable buddies you play with who can provide the DPS while you tank, it is probably far more doable. I just haven't been able to test my theory since all my friends are now way ahead of me and don't want to play the beginning of Act 1.

Farming is an option, but farmin just to get gear youll wear is a bit of a foold game.
Hitting up the AH is your best option, and if your goal is to get act 1 to farm status, you wont need a lot of cash.
Your resistances look good for act 1, everything else seems a bit low. Depending on how you got to 200 resists (IE if all your gear has like 20-30, thats bad, but if youve got some 50s and etc you should be fine.), you might not need to get a heck of a lot.
I can state for sure that you can do it for under 350K, as thats what i spent to get a buck naked barbarian to a 5 stack butcher kill, and i wasnt usin a follower.
(I can also tell you its not terribly hard to get your enchantress and scoundrel to 3.5K dps using only inferno act 1 drops.)
06/06/2012 07:22 AMPosted by TimmyTwoToestype in low buyout prices. I got geared and can farm act 1 so easily now, cost me around 100k total. Some people sell stuff for super cheap when others sell it for a !@#$ load.

Im guessing you're searchin for Resist/Vit/Strength.
Not needed at all for act 1. Nor act 2 for that matter.
I bought 3 blues with 70+ resist all, and 150 odd strength, and called resistances good. And got a huge boost to dps. That was all the resist needed for act 1, especially doin 14K dps with a cheap (140K, your definition of cheap may vary) 1050dps 2 hander.
I too felt act 1 sucked when I started it and then I the same about act2. I am at the point now where I can enjoy my barb in act 2 without dying too much and guess what?>?????
I never changed my spec I never sword and board my barb.
I wanted to make it work and for the most part, I won, so far at least in act 2.
And yes the AH is your friend as a barb however, I found sick items that were not for a barb in act 1 that I sold for a nice profit. Like a Life on hit 1hand crossbow that does about 800 dps with crit and attack speed. That fetched in just under a million so it can be done with farming of act 1
My starts are with battlecry and warcry
Resistance 700-860 with my physical being 826
Life on hit is 400 (not huge, but it does help)
Crit damage increase is 150%
Crit change is 9.5%
To me this is pretty basic the I think "leap" is a waste but it is just how I play do the most damage you can do before you die, and most of the time in act2 I don't die, It is nice being able to clear caves and dungeons and do the act start to finish like I do act 1 1000 times.
I just dont think i am ready for act 3 yet, need a few more HP and some more resist cant hurt and maybe a tick or two more DPS.
BTW if you had not guessed I am 2H all the way. Way more fun, to play this way than sword and board.
