I have recently returned from a 5 month break and always been playing S & B Barb, in the last month i have tried all sorts of Builds including WW builds, 2h Skorn Builds and DW Builds in all sorts of ways just to return back to a rarther classic S & B Hota build. i have 110 mill to spend and would like to upgrade my dps as far as possible. i am currently farming mp 7 without any probs. its a bit slow but i am not really in a hurry. i guess i could swap the mempo for a 100 str 60 ar and 5 -6 crit ik triumph as that is pretty affordable for more crit rate ?
also i believe my sword isnt the best weapon for me atm bec of my low crit rate, i tend to always run out of rage compared to using the sky splitter (wo life steal) before. maybe swap back?
i also have a 330 vit 290 str 7,5 cc 9 cc red 50 ar sacred shield with only 11 block chance though, any idea if this is any good compared to my current ss,. i have the feeling that the ss is way better even if i lose a !@#$load of stats.
any adivce is gladly appreciated.
My next upgrade would be an ammy with similiar stats, but with 8+ CC. You are right, your CC is on the low side and I would like to see you bring it up a bit if you can.
1 - Ammy with CC
2 - Try to get a new Hellfire with CC (just takes time, this is basically free... goodluck!)
3 - Sword with more DPS... tough call you might have to lose your life steal in order to obtain this
4 - Ik Gloves - free up a spot an IK spot and let you get ice climbers
5 - Ice Climbers - with vit.
Those would be on my list of things to get, the upgrades after this will be pretty much end game type stuff... I.E. more vit IK chest, CC Mempo, Vit/Life Vile Wards, 10 CC SS ect.
I would keep your SS, I think they offer a SnB a lot of value.
I use templar for farming because he we rock stormshields together. But I honestly really like him for the fury regen he provides. Helps me keep sprint up when farming, really important for lower MP's if you ever dabble into XP runs, which maybe wont be the best thing in the upcoming patch with the buffs.
Enchant is good to, for the increase armor and attack speed.
