Diablo® III

Barb PVP build. #YOLO

From experimenting to the variety of builds out there. This is the ONLY build I've seen that can allow you to consistently kill other players. Yes, even WD's and Monks.

Sadly. To pull off this build you have to be a pretty dickish person because this build requires you to...

Relog Refresh.

The only ability that allows you to actually do some damage against some of the more OP classes in PvP is WoTB: Insanity. Unfortunately, it only has 15s worth of duration on it, refreshing WoTB by relogging is possibly the only way to have it on "100% uptime".

This is the build:

Killing spree is just there to give you more CC. Ultimately, you want to be able to do a crit on each rend, which with insanity is almost always a one shot.

Try playing around with different skills if you feel this can be improved.

Take note that with WDs. If they decide to SW their !@# outta your rend. Rend their dummy bodies to break them out of SW, use your superior MS to chase them down and rend again.

For Monks, SSS and Serenity are a pain in the $%^. Try to lure them into emptying their skillbars, then rend them down.

DH's aren't that much of an annoyance as long as they don't spam SS.

Get used to the range of wrenching smash. If they get close enough. Wrenching smash> Overpower> Rend.

Take note, Ancient spear instead of Overpower if playing against ranged classes.

Cheers.

P.S. Oh yeah, you could try Skorn with this build, but the extra 10% CC from shields helps so much. Try mixing and matching different abilities, you might find a variation that beats this one.

No offense, but this is incredibly degenerate, not specifically the idea, but the fact that an arpg game has skills with such ridiculous long cooldowns.

Man. :( I know WoTB is overpowered to warrant this long CD.

I think the main issue with most Barb vs Any class is that we have almost no way to break CC abilities other than a skill that cools down after 2 mins.

Glad to see you found something that works. Logged out in my future pvp set after a bunch of testing, this is definitely the most reliable way to win vs any class that i've tried.

Double reflect talents, perma sprint, stun weapon throw, and -46% CC reduction.

How about WDs? Can't they permanently turn you into a pig? >.>

Hmmm how about stacking CC reduction to 100% , does it totally ignore all CC @100%?

right now, i would say that weapon throw + stun + sprint+ battle rage is the way to go here, gives u a chance to perma stun, can also experiment with passives, since u dun need that much dps in pvp

cc reduction stacks diminishingly to a max value of 75%. I found the optimal point is around 50%, or 13-14% on 5 gear pieces.

i found great success with the build in my profile, after some experimentation in 1v1 situations i win the majority of time, played against good geared dhs, monks, and wizards and beat them...haven't faced a wd yet thou

but my build is a pure wt build and my gear already has 50% cc reduction which allows me to use relentless as my 3rd passive...

what about rush instead of marathon and maybe veterans warning instead of op? i can tell you that if i swap all dex gems and these 2 abilities active i have 50% dodge. I have not played ptr yet so i dont know what works and what doesnt but seems like dodge is the way to go if its a big 1 shot fest.

say you have a long cooldown like wotb. After the duel it will still be on cooldown for a while so you log out of the game you're in and rejoin to reset all cooldowns
