hey Raygorn, yes from what i see in your DP you have 150K HP which is huge but only have 2.2M EHP, try to increase your EHP up to 2.5M+ even if you need to sacrifice some of your HP.

if you check out mine, i only have 137k HP with with almost 4.6M EHP...

when it comes to HP you need to think more on Quality and not Quantity.

Hope the idea helps.

EDIT: Use EHP Calculator first before you buy anything just to be sure

Raw hp isnt a big deal its how effective you can make your hp that is. I remember having 200k hp but my effective hp was lower than it is now with 60k less health. because i sacrificed much to get hp high i didnt have the allres/dex/other reductions to balance it out to make that large hp pool more effective than a smaller hp pool that was more balanced out.

To answer your question a little more directly raygorn i cant find any situation where a rare shield outperforms a stormshield. Even the best rare shield in the entire game with the most desirable affixes is a 5x nerf for me.

Edit: heeey now i remember you! you were making a life regen barb hehe. Why dont you send me a friend request ill help you out with your questions if youd like

That's a good question. I wonder what happened to him. This game ruins lives, I just hope he wasn't a victim.
Hi 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.

Survivability Improvement

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.

He's taking a break and will come back when PVP is up
He said he might drop by every now and then... he's just focusing on RL right now
