I just got the game yesterday and was looking for some barb advice. Im at lvl 28 right now. Im not sure what weapons I should be going for and general stats/skills.
Morp, Dont worry about your skill until you reach lv60. (That's when all skill and runes available for you). Once you reach lv 60, then read this http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7591980848
Gear wise, you dont need AH until you reach lv 60. currently I'm playing WD and I only use what I found.
Just use any weapon with high DPS, and you already in track collecting STR and VIT for barb.
add me in game, i might have same gold to spare. Just to buy potion and repair bill.

crafting kinda sucks unless you get the inferno plans (archon "x" of strength) so I'd stay away from crafting, or even leveling the blacksmith. he just isn't worth it at the point of the game you are in.
for your level just use whatever weapons are the highest dps for you. once you get the passive weapons master (i forget when it become available) you should mainly be chosing between axe/mace or swords/dagger(mainly swords as they just have higher dps in general) to take advantage of that passive.
as for skills, just mess around with them, have fun using any really cause there aren't really any "builds" till you get to lvl 60 when you can buy/find all the good gear. frenzy is fun, if you want to move faster use the vanguard rune, it'll just help ya clear the content faster.
and yeah you came at a time when the game has been out for almost a year, when people with a hundred million gold are considered "poor". Softcore economy sucks my man :-/
i just got back into the game after stopping playing my dh 6+ months ago and decided to level a barb, hit 60 last night and have the ~1.3mil i made while leveling
any chance anyone here could help me out with i guess making a budget set for the char trying to maximize on the little bit of gold i have currently.
btag zaibas#1960 if anyone feels like taking the time to help :)
My other char is a wiz, and found this in wiz forum http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7811021522?page=1
Sort of similar with this tread, so if you just reach lv 60 you might want to look it. they give away mostly wiz's gear, but they do have free other char's gear.
My old and unused legend usually go there.
Hey barbs, im new to the game i bought it 3 days ago and can easily say im addicted. So far im lvl 41 and near the end of act 2 on nightmare. Id appreciate some advice from an educated barb more than gear but that wouldn't go a miss if it was offered. Please add me in game if you can spare the time.
I've mainly played wiz so far. I've got a barb (which I only used when playing along a friend of mine to have someone at a similar level to him). I'm interested in trying to gear my barb now. Obviously hard to take on all this knowledge.
If you guys got stuff you're otherwise going to vendor I wouldn't mind getting a hold of it to make a starter barb.
Just got back into the game, left early june 2012. Barb is my only 60, last I played I couldn't get through the first quest in act 2 inferno. Working through inferno now with some ease but stepping up the monster power seems scary but necessary. Would appreciate any item upgrades or advice, have about 3 mill now to upgrade with too.

If you have no intention of getting both weapons to the 2.5 APS breakpoint (just need 1 more source of ias), possible "single slot" upgrades are:
a) Better main hand (without ias or Vit; go for Str, chd, socket)
b) +0.24 APS, 200 Str EF with chd and socket (as much DPS as possible)
c) 150/150 Str+Vit IK Chest (was @ 10m, look for higher Str/Vit combo to fit your budget)
d) 150+ Vit Inna's (was @ 70m; alternative is Str+Vit combo)
e) chd on either Unity or Litany (a 6/30 cold SoJ to replace Unity is also an option)
f) gloves with more chc (craft or AH)
Personally, I would use the 150m to upgrade these 4 slots:
1. Upgrade IK Chest (10m-15m)
2. Upgrade Vit Inna's (70m)
3. Swap to chc Lacuni w/70 AR (35m)
4. Swap to Ice Climbers w/300+ Str+Vit (30-50m)
The others may have better recommendations for you. :)
Great info here, as I have also recently got back into "Barbing it up". That said. I am slowly working towards the proper WW spec set. After watching some decent farming videos I feel like I finally have found a decent spot to farm some gold to start the slow climb upwards for gear. Act III on MP1 is about the most efficient for me. Want to say thanks again to the community! Any help is welcome.
Great thread Check out om barb Im having a bunch of trouble doing mp3 i use cleave/hota or ss is my gear ? of res ? or just crapy weapons im poor I can buy any gold or items for real money so Im struck with what I find or can afford to buy any help would be great
can you look at my gear and advise me of my next direction for upgrades?
You are really hurting on vitality and all res, I'd look to upgrade those two stats to up your survivability.
You have an abundance of vitality, too much if you ask me. Change some of those amethyst gems for rubies to up your strength. Your dps is lower than average due in part cause you dont have sockets on your weapons, you are missing out on 200% CD right there.
Your all res is fine, you can stop using war cry and use over power killing spree for a nice10% CC jump and nice AOE damage.
Your other skill are jumbled IMO, what type of build are you trying to play? If you aren't using WotB I don't see why you would use battle rage - into the fray. I think the rune adding 30% damage would be more useful
