01/22/2013 04:01 PMPosted by Nikeboy1984@fabbypowpow - hey man sorry i havent much time playing recently, been flat out busy at work and at home, i will spend time with you maybe tomorrow if you like to practice, i havent tried WD Yet so im keen to learn duelling with you.
ok i think i played like 9 hours of ptr pvp today and i relentlessly destroyed everyone the entire time i mean it wasnt even close at all i think i died 3 times and it was just to wd's cuz i was sitting in hex with ignore pain on cooldown
The utility of 5 piece ik and unforgiving is too good to pass up and allows me to survive situations where i normally would of died in my previous gearset simply because i can sprint marathon infinately and run my !@# away better than any olympic runner and line of sight hide until ignore pain is back up while regenning hp the entire time thanks to inspirince presence.
My only regret is my ptr toon didnt copy properly and i didnt have my new dps rings so i was stuck using justice lanterns the whole time but im really excited to test a litany and a minus wep throw soj combo.
Even with unforgiving and the fury generation of 5 piece ik its still a bit tricky managing your fury. that 100 fury goes by fast especially after missing a few wep throws and a rend or 2. I plan on maximizing fury with IK set + soj and continue to use unforgiving. Im having a lot of fun cant wait till pvp goes live.
edit: heres the spec i was using i would change juggernaut out with nerves of steel depending on if my opponents had a lot of cc or not. In 1v1 certain things would change like i dont really need leap for monks so i would use battle rage for more dps, etc
Ive had pretty much same experience been playing contantly for a couple days with very rare deaths just massacring ppl with wd getting me ignore pain on cd sometimes. Regen with sprint marathon are your best friend! lol .. I am in the middle of re gearing now towards 5 pc ik for more fury as well.
People who say barbs are bad at pvp are clueless

I'm online right now if you want to discuss the chest.
Wow Nike that's a nice chest.
I am slowly saving up for a new one :D. Just deciding if I want to aim for 200+ vit or 90 vit and 10+% life.
01/23/2013 08:50 AMPosted by xxxkanI haven't tried PvP yet because I know if I play on PTR I will try to craft some amulets which will end up resulting in a GG one that I cant use on main server.

Mate, I can't right now lol...i'm at work. What timezone are you in? Are you in the UK?
I'm in the eastern time zone (North East NA)
@vict3r damn bro.. nice ms ice climbers!
id say invest in a good StormShield.. higher end cc (9+) and 30+ block chance.. u will lose some vit but u can afford it im sure.. the reduce damage stats should counter that somewhat anyway..
as for the rest of ur gear.. these guys have a better idea how to setup gear than i.. wait for more advise from them :)
The main problem I have with the five piece IK set is that the bonus doesn't generate fury involuntarily, but via your hits and incoming hits. In addition, I really don't think that the Immortal King's Helm or Strides are BIS any more -- it's the Mempo of Twilight and Ice Climbers.
Fury generation is an issue, but I was talking to another well known Barbarian about some of the passives and instead of say, Juggernaut, he went with Superstition. It generates a great deal of fury off elemental damage from Witch Doctors, Monks, Wizards; it's a great passive in place of Unforgiving because the Barb can take so much damage (providing he doesn't stand still).
