[2]Uberjager's thread on Ubergearing WW Barbs

@ uber

You wearing your SoJ full time now?


I swap around when I deal with elites.

The reason why SoJ is so good against elites is because we're both using brawler. :P

I am going to be interested to see what the clear speeds are for us....maybe we should do XP counts again? There has to be a better way to measure MP10 efficiency.....any suggestions?

Dude it's really time you finish those other sections! ^^

I just a couple of minutes ago came up with the idea to - well - copy your build.

For whatever reasons I didn't really get how Overpower works. Why the hell would I want to cripple myself with using Warcry if I can have 10% crit chance with 99% uptime?¿ Resulting in no fury issues whatsoever and more healing via LS - that's way better than getting a boost on AR and armor.

Duh!

You knew this, everyone else knew this - but I didn't!

Damn you gotta think of us herp derps, too :P

I'm still a little too low on my AR (just about 500, with physical being on 580) to make it work on higher MP I fear. Any thoughts on Crushing Advance? Or should I stick with Killing Spree and try a passive like Superstition instead? I know you don't like defensive passives, but what can I do. Especially since my next planned upgrade were Lacunis - and getting those with resists is not exactly in my budget I fear.

The 10% crit makes all your abilities more likely to crit which in turn reduces the cooldown of Overpower to the point that you can spam it once or twice every second.

Thats 165-330% damage in 9 yards every 1 second. Its a ridiculously overpowered AOE (lolpun).

@ Wayne,

I feel that barbs have a DPS output much higher than that of almost all other classes, e.g. the 500k dps wiz. The main issue is getting the mobs to be where you want them to be.

Gotta look abit more indepth then.

For one. 577 vit is terrible. Really really bad gearing. :/

Get it up to 1k from Chest/belt/ pants.

I see you're stacking alot of life%, but without the necessary 1k vit. any amount of life% is pointless.

Your MH needs a higher damage range. Damage modifiers on a MH are not advised unless you can afford them.

Remember, Damage range> lifesteal>socket>CD>Str.

Lifesteal is a personal preference, you can ignore it if you're comfortable with it not being on your MH.

But this is the order of importance for stats on a MH.

If I'm a brand new level 60 barb with 50 mil, should I start farming my way to 100 paragon at MP10?


I think you should follow this guide.

Farm at whatever MP you're comfortable with lol.

By the look of your build Act 3 Hell Mp0 should do the trick.

Instead of going Str/vit for innas shoulda gone a single high vit roll. 860 vit is abit low. Your all resists are pretty low as well. might have to swap out killing spree for crushing advance in the higher MPs for survivability. Try to find a WH with AR if you can afford it.

What is a MH ring? (the one with all resist on it?)

Which gems? (the ones in my chest/legs?)

So my MH is groovy?

Thanks a lot for taking some time to suggest changes.

MH ring = the ring on your mainhand.

Gems because your setup is largely fine. Gem's would be the most solid investment (unless they come up with new gems, which we all wouldn't know about anyway) because you'll never ever need to replace them subsequently.

Awesome, thanks Uberjaber. I book marked this excellent thread.

(btw, what would you suggest for an upgrade to my Mh ring?)

Hot damn. Just realised you're relying heavily on your MH ring for AR.

._.

Swap pants out. 200 vit+ vit 2 socket. 60 ar. Str not necessary (good to have if you can afford it).

Ring should be AVG damage/CC/CD or IAS. Strength/vit if you can afford it.

Hey Uber, wanted to bounce this off ya. I found the Blackthorn boots im wearing and since i was doing speed runs to hit 85 I put them on because my slow climbers dont have MS. The 7% reduced damage from elites got me thinking about what you wrote about the Ice Climbers.

If the 10% to cold damage is bis for mitigation, wouldnt that make the 7% reduction from elites maybe even better? I thuoght so, even if im wrong, its still a good mod to have. So I found an ok IK chest piece that had 6% on. So now im sitting at 13% reduction from elites.

The trade off is about 6 or 8k dps loss from my ice climbers. Not the end of the world and if I can sort out an echo with a socket I think it will put me comfortably ahead.
