I didn't clear Act IV because I was exceptionally skilled at playing my Barbarian or because I discovered some crazy revolutionary build. I beat Act IV because my gear was good enough to do it. Progression at max level is entirely based on gear. This isn't exactly news and this will never change. If you're having trouble progressing, the reason is almost always going to be "you're not properly equipped for it".

Here are a few quick pointers on improving your gear quality for Barbarians looking to progress through Inferno....

Is your armor and resists posted with or without warcry?? I'm seriously taking notes on where I'm deficient compared to your stats, but going to see how ur stats will work with my build. but anyways.. pls... is that with or without warcry?

You forgot knowledge of class skill stacking.....

Example, I see many WW barbs who do not compare to my dps and they spent twice as much gold as I did, and they die ALOT more.

In act 3-4 inferno WW is less useful I have found then my current build which beat all 4 acts.

The benefits of knowing the usefulness of OverPower and LOH stacking, and popping two forms of enrage to crit 100k+ sustained damage regardless of fury.

WW builds are extremely FURY dependant and require micromanagement and high crit to sustain.

Smash and go builds are very very sustainable with little or no rage....

I enjoy the build and the stat advise but the Battle Rage ability isn't really my style, i was just curious if there is anything i could use in its place that might help me still do good damage?
