(with an axe)
you can easily reach 20% crit
30 with rath of the berserker
and with items you can raise that even higher. so i am curious.
does ne1 know a good build that can take advantage of these critical hits. like using skills that get extra effects on crit.
battle rage seems to have a few effects with crits
and wrath of the berserker slaughter rune is nice
i found some decent crit skills here
but i wouldnt really call that a "build"
at least not one that will work in inferno
I have 10% crit with just ruthless .
I need a damn good axe or 2h mace to use wep master .
my currect weapon has 100% increase bonus crit damage .
the main issue is survivability .
This build works . I use it . Its basically a tanking build with ruthlessness for the crit and bonus
What is funny is I just ran butcher inferno and just before him I ran into a shielding elite pack . I already had 5 stacks of valor so I RAN into butcher because its easier killing him than messing with shielding mobs .
My 1h + shield could deal with this . So you need VERY GOOD resists and armor to play this 2h style if you are going to take hits from elites while ignore pain is down .
spamming revenge always works tho :)

Im running a crit build atm taken from another thread, seems to work well.
modified it, its fun, i ahve 32.5% crit with battle rage and 183% critical damage.
I'm running a level 56 Barb, with emphasis on crit hit chance and damage taken to an extreme. So far have 45.5% chance without Skills and 292% damage through item choices.. Basically 50% of the time I'm laying out 3x the normal damage or essentially this has doubled damage output. and since critical hits are tied to alot of perks, it really helps like being able to whirlwind for ALONG time and heal while doing damage.
With skills that goes up around 60% crit hit chance and somewhere north of 350% damage. Results are still excellent with the ability to plow quickly through monsters on Hell where I'm at. What I'm tweaking now trying to add in life steal to the equation.

I might look into that, Im kinda getting bored of farming butcher for lvl 60 materials when mostly 55-59 stuff drops .
Saw this on DiabloIncGamers last night, thought I'd try it and it seems to work pretty well -
It's a WW barb utilizing high crit gear and skills. Highly gear dependent, of course, but if you have some gold in the bank it seems to be viable in inferno..

I am a crit build barb with sky splitter.
Try fitting furious assault into your build, it breaks jailer
That's my build and I am rockin 45.5% passive crit chance. I cannot emphasize enough how important relentless is

i use a build like this (swap out a few other skills like Wrath of the Berserker) and if you keep getting hits and crits, your crit rate can easily go up to about 30%.
on top of that, I have a vanilla crit rate of about 11%, so when I get in a large mob, I can get up to about a 40-50% to crit...
They are broken now , patch broke it . I Was relying on chain crits to get the massive damage needed to drop things fast . Now I hit like a wet noodle hoping for a 1 crit
they're not broken, they fixed an exploit...the skills that were fixed were triggering OTHER skills' critical hit %'s too (if I understand correctly). You can still get a ridiculously high crit rate
