What should I shoot for minimums on rings? 6% cold damage, is -4 to resource cost on Hammer good enough or do I need the full 5?
If you're using it for HOTA, then you don't really need to get +cold damage. As for what -fury you should go for, it's not an exact science. Technically if you crit every time and have -5 then you can just tape your HOTA keybind down but in reality you don't need 100% crit or a lot of -fury cost. If you're hitting more than one target it's pretty much always going to be rage positive in the long run, and if you're using bash-punish or frenzy-maniac then you'll get some fury refreshing those every few hammers as well.
IMO, take a look at what you can afford. If you're going to use the SOJ for WW as well then cold damage is a solid idea, but it will be expensive. IIRC 6% cold 30% elite -5 HOTA rings are 200m or so, maybe more. That goes down quite a bit if you don't need the cold damage.

That really surprises me... I don't understand how that can be possible. I don't see hits under 200k even with my dagger OH, and my MH hits for 600k-1.1 mil. Obviously I am not close to you in gear. Are you using Bash - Punish? It helps a lot.
Ahh that makes a bit more sense. I never really noticed that on a weapon or how it would effect things. I got that Echoing Fury for 600 mil. Hmm guess I should upgrade both weapons then...that's going to be fairly expensive.
Edit: Looking at other Echoing Fury weapons they go over a thousand but not much more than that, does that really make that much of a difference?
While Stones of Jordan are great (the damage from one of these is absolutely fantastic against elites), the notion of having HOTA up all the time is largely a myth with just -5 Reduction. You just can't pull that off since the proc coefficient on HOTA->Smash is .8. So even with a -5 Reduction, 15 Fury Generated by Into the Fray, and 100% Critical Chance you will still lose fury since 20% of the time because HOTA won't proc Into the Fray.
