Bump for @Jook, @BALLER, @Crypter,
hows PTR testing?
Not enjoying it, seems my choice to go for balance is not playing out so well in PVP. My EHP is good enough to fight other barbs, but when it comes to good DH's (like Kamikaze) I get owned bad. That and I still havn't found a good build that works with my gear and stats. Seems I keep trying different things out but no time to test when your getting caught in a !@#$ storm / cluster %^-*.
@Nike and Crypter,
Im doing pretty good man. I got owned by Detox and Moldran, but they had juggernaut on and I didnt know about the stun procs.... it was like my second match in PTR and me and crypter were getting pretty hard lol.
I think the FFA format is fun, but a little much at times, I think 1v1 would be much funner or atleast more competitive.
Im using a throw build with some good success, im not even messing with HOTA. I think 5 piece IK could be the best build to free up an armour passive.
Overall, I think barbs need high dmg output with less focus on high AIS. With a large amount of mitigation (not so much on HP as mitigation), though HP will definetly help, but if you have to choose one, I would pick mitigation (AR or Armour). This is aligned with my original thoughts as well. AIS doesnt seem to matter at all, nor does movespeed. I say this because you can leap away which is like 1000% MS and your never going to get a chance where your going hit for hit very long.
