It bothers me when two different classes who put in the same amount of gold get a different result in the end, even if both are going for the best build. Well that's my opinion... and again, I'm not calling for a nerf to Barb. Right now Wizard has to get two different gear sets, one for farming (Archon), and one for high MP (CM-Wiz). With that money split, it's hard to get the same results in efficiency than a class who doesn't have to do the same.
My BARB has 2 different gear sets...HOTA for high MP runs and SSWT for lower mp farming runs...what is the difference?
