@Boohaha -- I went for Rend resource reduction on my belt. I haven't considered the bug you mentioned; do you have fury issues in terms of trying to hold Wrath with -9 reduction to throw?
Hi acrimony, sorry for the late reply.I am able to hold Wrath on MP10 Ubers while using -9 weapon throw, but it's not fun b/c my fingers tire from BattleRage + Sprint spam:
Actually, when I do high level MP runs, I can't do a pure Weapon Throw build because it is inefficient for AOE and standing still is terrible when fighting arcane/desecrator elites. Therefore, I utilize the same weapon throw/WW/Sprint hybrid as you/others.
At -9 fury cost, I am unable to use weapon throw as a fury sink. Therefore, my fury sink is WW/Sprint + Rend (recently, however, I started experimenting with HotA). I use weapon throw only to stun lock, hit very far mobs/ranged elites, or as fury generator. That being said, I tested and was able to maintain WotB using -9 Weapon Throw while standing still, mindlessly spamming Battle Rage and Sprint on all 3 MP10 Ubers. But at high MP levels, using only weapon throw (at -9) and stupidly spamming Battle Rage and Sprint while standing still is silly because WW/Sprint would do way more damage, as per Nubtro's Sprint torando damage calculations. Also, spamming Battle Rage and Sprint so much makes my fingers tired and really decreases the joy of playing.
tldr: I use Weapon Throw as a fury generator/stunlock only. My fury sink is Hota and/or WW/Sprint. I finally tried HotA, at 20 fury cost, and to my surprise was able to maintain WotB very very easily
. Of course, a string of no crits or Ubers running out of my hit range as HotA landed still makes me use Weapon Throw to give me fury. But using HotA, I no longer have to spam Battle Rage + Sprint. It made the game that much more relaxing.Some of the math if people were interested in standing still while maintaining WotB, and not having to spam Battle Rage + Sprint
At -9 fury cost to weapon throw, weapon throw definitely isn't used as a fury spender, unless I can throw 25 weapons per second (i.e. spending 25 fury per second).
At -5, you would have to throw 5 weapons per second to use 25 fury per second.
At -2, you would have to throw 25/8 = 3.125 attacks per second to use 25 fury per second.
At -1, you would have to throw 25/9 = 2.7 weapons thrown per second, to use 25 fury per second.
At -0 (no reduction of weapon throw's fury cost), you would have to throw 2.5 weapons per second. 2.5 attacks per second is quite achieveable as a WW/Sprint barb. However, if you gear yourself with such attack speed, you are gearing yourself in such a way that your damage is maximized by using the WW/Sprint setup (search for Nubtro's post on the damage of the tornados and the attackspeed breakpoints). If you gear yourself as a WW/Sprint barb, then you should use WW/Sprint instead of standing still to throw because your throw damage will be very low compared to WW/Sprint.
