A lot of you WW barbs who are on a tight budget are considering quitting the game, respeccing or changing to a different class once the 1.0.5 patch hits. Considering that Blizzard has pretty much only allowed top geared WW barbs to remain untouched by the LOH and fury gen change.
Well I thought I would help you guys out and make budget WW barbs that will be viable in 1.0.5!
For 1.7 million I made this barb with the following stats:
Proof of purchases:
65kDPS (with wotb)
616 All Res
785 Phys Res
994 Fire res
Crit Chance 58.5 Buffed
37% chance dodge loled
I was able farm pretty easily. I did die a couple times as you can see in the chat due to me being reckless and thinking I was wearing my real gear lol.
With these stats it takes a little more concentration to farm, and you can still considerably WW through molten etc. In my opinion with 1.7mil worth of gear I'd probably just skip the ranged elite packs, the moon clan occulists and fallen firemages.
I feel maybe with 2.5m budget that could get 35kHP so you wouldn't be so squishy.
Prices (200k tip or whatever you feel):
- Similar stats to the above (if not better)
-80K DPS wotb
700 AR +
700 AR +
750 AR +
Could do even more but who knows.
Unless you guys want me to suggest upgrades for each of your pieces then let me know :)
