Barb or DH build for high lag?


Does anyone have any tips for builds or gear set up to deal with poor ping times? I usually get 400-500ms to the Blizz servers and keep getting killed by anything fast even at no mp. I am currently leveling a ww barb but would prefer to play DH.

Been getting that lag quite frequently lately, but I guess it's better that the random disconnections we used to get. Lost a few infernal machines to them, have quite a few now, but won't waste any more till servers are somewhat reliable again. Maybe it's just tough luck to be in Australia.
ps: barb seems to work better with the lag, need the defence to not randomly die

yep, barb better for lag and a ww barb also kills faster than a DH
ie. he can take quite a few hits and if you have around 1900 life on hit like my barb then you can easily do MP 6 and 7, providing you have a good set/legend combo

Agreed, WW Barb. Plus, getting DH gear will be more expensive I reckon.

Check Uber's guide for gearing Barbs, esp. on survivability and defensive setup: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7592639226.

Also, depending on your stats and what MP you want to play at you might want to think of LS instead of LoH: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6893549412.

If you can play DH (skills/patience/money aka gold), play it; Barb gets old pretty fast.
