01/11/2013 07:27 AMHi all, I am a new to this SnB community and would like to seek some advice before spending my money. I have around 130M at this moment. I wonder if i should spend all my money at once for a better sword. if yes, should i get a str/ias/cd/os and use bloodthrust or stick with str/ias/ls/OS? Thanks!

Hi Cup, Welcome mate. I have viewed your profile in DP and shows 1M EHP with a Stormshield which needs a lot of improvement if you wish you go full blast MH DPS sword. Hence, we need to improve your survivability/EHP first before trying to increase your DPS. Below are some things you need to consider.
1. get a Rare Pants with AR STR/VIT and 2 OS to replace your Inna's
2. get a mid-tier IK boots (100VIT/100STR) to gain 12ms lost from Inna's - by doing so you'll get the 3rd IK bonus which is -4% melee damage reduction (its a big ehp boost) - keep your ice climbers for future use.
3. Replace your Non-crit mempo with a VIT ones, you can get something like 200+ STR and 40+VIT for a very cheap price
With these upgrades i am suspecting you're EHP will reach at 1.5M (On a Witching Hour) which is already a good EHP for an S&B barb and then you can find a better sword afterwards and then slowly increase your DPS by getting new ammys, rings, chest etc.
Survivability first and everything comes next.
