I like the new topic title. Hopefully it gets more of a look by people before they create topics that can simply be answered by giving links to this thread or other threads within it.

Well played.

Don't know if this was already posted, but I ran across this barbarian legendary gear guide on youtube and found it relatively informative, especially for new barbarian players.

Have actually been toying with that idea :) Only didnt want to put any people that charge for their services.
Ill start compiling some names here, good idea!

@RagingKoala

Have you thought about adding a glossary of terms for some of the newer users? I know from personal experience when I was new that I actually had to Google some terms just to understand the conversation.

Should be fairly simple to come up with a list of terms and their meanings.

Thanks for linking my thread on fury gen for WotB.

Why do you put link to page 2? I revised page 1 quite a bit, so maybe update link?

I was thinking of incorporating that into the Farming for keys thread posted above, Whatcha think?
Was going to combine the keys, plans and essences into one thread.

Totally agree.

Greetings and thanks for investing the time and effort into bringing all this information together for the community. It's been a valuable resource for myself and others, and has helped tremendously!

I've noticed that since 1.07, it seems that a lot of people are coming back to the game, and are looking for advice on how to gear/spec their barbs. I've pointed some of them to this thread as the best starting point, which reminded me of how lost I was when I decided to switch my main from my Wizard to my Barb.
I started to devise a compendium of acronyms to help out, but then remembered that you already had a list that helped me sort out all the abbreviations when I was working out my stat prioritization.

Below are some additions that could be added to your list that might be helpful to new or returning players.

Thanks again,
Cheers!

BiS - Best in Slot
DW - Dual Wield
EHP - Effective Hit Points
HoTA - Hammer of The Ancients
LoH - Life on Hit
LS - Life Steal
MH - Main-hand
OH - Off-hand
OS - Open Socket
SnB/S&B - Sword and Board (Shield)
tDPS - True Damage Per Second (WW barbs)
Trifecta - usually referring to the holy trinity of damage modifiers (IAS, CC, CD)
WH - Witching Hour
WoTB - Wrath of The Beserker
