Let me know if you have questions about itemising. I like to think I'm pretty good at it :D

My advice is take Acrimony up on his offer to help, or let some other top barb help. It would be very easy to blow 1.5 bil on the AH without getting a truly godly, coherent set. It is easy to get tons of CC/CD/IAS/STR, but it is no simple thing to assemble a great set. I assume you are going to do a WW build. Even if you are very smart and you do some research up front, you will make costly gearing mistakes if you don't get some expert advice.

Yep.

OP, just make sure don't ask Joch for any advice on how to itemize properly. I'm sure everyone can do a better job than him. Maybe his shield expertise could rub off on you.

IMO... cash that outtttt. At least most of it. Upgrade with some fun stuff but then go buy yourself a dang iPad or something with that cash haha.

Man... sooooo jealous. You and I have somewhat similar WW barb stats and I have been eeeeeking my way ever so slowly to over 100 mil in gold, only to stare in disappointment at the 200 mil IK chests I cant have.

The D3 world is now your oyster. You are the unlikely statistic that should never have been. Claim your rags to riches title and run wild with maniacal power.

But... don't you constantly sit there and wonder if you could have gotten 4 billion?

@Acrimony I will definitely take you up on that offer since ive never had anywhere near this much gold and id probably waste it all stupidly :P

If I'm right, I can gear you better than myself. Or very close to it.

Let me know what time I should come on. I'm heading over to the PTR to farm some Ubers :D

Here is my advice regarding the IK set items:

For the helm, wait for 1.0.5. Maybe they will fix Mempo of Twilight, and then it will become the new BIS. Don't buy an IK's Triumph until you know what is happening with the Mempo.

For the chest, you can't go wrong with IK's Eternal Reign

Don't bother with IK's Stride if you don't want the full set bonus. Instead, get Ice Climbers. The only reason I don't have one is because Ice Climbers are as ugly as they are expensive.

The mighty weapon is just lol.

IK's Irons have the bonus melee reduction and the possibility of rolling high strength, but good rares have better stats. For example, IK's Irons can never roll trifecta and all res at the same time.

IK's Tribal Binding is pretty good, but technically, a Lamentation can roll the same stats, and you still get the 1% crit chance bonus...but good Lamentations (i.e. ones with high strength and high all res) are extremely rare. Their current low prices relative to the Tribal Binding reflect this. If you're not interested in lifesteal, get a Witching Hour (a godly one would probably cost you a billion, lol).

Math isn't your strongest skill, is it?

Selling it on RMAH for 250 =

~175 Million gold

Selling it for 1.7 Billion gold =

~$1190

There comes a point when you have to sell a highly valuable item for gold, and then sell the gold. This is because the highest price you can set an item in the RMAH is $250. That makes the "cap" at the current price of gold a mere 175Million gold.
