Alright, i've sucked up the courage to post in here because as you can see my barb is fairly rag and tag - but i've been s&b from day 1 :)
To place things in perspective, I only manage to play a few hours a week (have 2 kids with autism) and atm i've only got 2m in the bank so I guess upgrades will be few and far between.
But i'm hoping to gain some advice on some bang for buck upgrade paths to look for from you Vets.
Get some IK boots, man. You will get some MS and the 2 set bonus, this should be within your budget. Your barb is definetly good enough to bang away at the lower MP levels and farm, which is all you really need to do at this point.
First 2 upgrades I would focus on are your boots and a better shield. I would recommend getting a stormshield with atleast 8 CC. With your budget, aim for the highest block you can get, low 20's would still be fine, considering your budget and current shield.
Some build advice I do have for you is...
Keep Frenzy in there, Acrimony is very smart and the bash idea was a good one. But since you have a decent amount of LOH, frenzy IK belt and low'ish AIS, I feel the frenzy would actually be better for you. Try them both out though and please provide some feedback, it will help other members out as well. The way I see it is, frenzy has more AIS, so your CC goes up with higher AIS, thus causing more procs from into the fray and is very easy to mix frenzy and hota's in together while keeping the 20% maniac bonus.
Then I would change ground stomp out and put HOTA in its place (Smash Rune).
