I typically farm MP 6 or 7 and it's a rare occurrence for me to die. I believe the problem stems with my gear over my build. (Some people prefer Superstition or Nerves of Steel over Bloodthirst, but this is my personal preference until I get more LoH or LS)
I have put my focus on Strength, Crit Chance, and Crit Damage followed by stacking Attack Speed, Vitality, All Resistance, Movement Speed and Life % when I can. This has led to problems with my survival during fights where the spike damage is greater than my regeneration mechanics.
For weapons, Echoing Fury seems to be a popular choice for the Weapons Master passive, the very high DPS, the Attacks per Second and chance of +Crit Damage and a Socket, but I found the fear mechanic to be extremely annoying when fighting smaller groups or trying to chase down a lone remaining elite so I switched to Sun Keeper in the meantime. I have considered using the Bul-Kathos set with Sockets in both weapons, but I will lose the 10% Crit bonus from Weapons Master and I am concerned about my Fury generation. This would, however, free up another passive to boost my damage or survivability.
I know the main upgrades people will say is to get better gems, and I am working on that, but aside from that, are there any other greater upgrades I can use to increase my damage output, survivability, or a healthy balance of both?
A few items I am considering as upgrades:
Echoing Fury (Even though I really really hate the fear proc)
Bul-Kathos Solemn Vow and Warrior Blood
Lacuni Prowlers (Will sacrifice even more survivability for damage and mobility)
Mempo of Twilight (Probable Survivability AND Damage boost)
I am also wondering if the Full IK set was worthwhile as I still run into the occasional Fury Starvation and the heal is super gimpy.
Finally, I am considering playing around with a 2H weapon and seeing the damage result and am torn between Skorn and the IK Boulder Breaker.
Any and all advice on how to improve my character to be able to farm MP10 (Albeit is doesn't have to be super fast, just for Key runs and Ubers fights) will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks to all those in the Barbarian community with information I likely have missed along the way.
