I know I need more health. Just wondering if I do enough damage for mp7 or higher. If not tips would be awesome! http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/SpArTaCuS-1908/hero/12867007

DPS isn't what will hold you back in high MPs. EHP and sustain are the big gear checks for high MP, having low damage just means it will take longer.

@OP, pretty sweet Lacuni and 300th! For your topic, I play MP10 with my SnB Barb regularly and switched to Throwing Hammer rune recently coz of 1.07 dueling. I believe you can stun uber very efficient but I am not sure if Slam is good enough for your dps output. HoTA is very popular for uber. I can be almost 90% cc with WoTB up and keep it till elite finished, crit hit yellow numbers usually from 500-700k. Did you play MP10? Usually how long do you take down an elite pack?

I don't think you'll have any issues on MP7 except (maybe) with Reflect elites. We have similar DPS/LS/LoH, plus you have ~160k EHP (unbuffed) more than I do.

FYI, I've carried 2 dead players in MP7 Uber (Skele/Magh and Ghom/Raka portals), and also key farm in MP10 with maybe a death every couple of runs. @MP10, it takes me 2-4 min per elite pack (depending on affix). You should be able to do better. :)

You can also try changing your Slam / Stagger to Slam / Rumble. The aftershocks can crit (bonus Fury) and proc LoH (bonus healing). I can Slam (almost) indefinitely if there are at least 3 mobs in the Slam / Rumble zone.

Thanks for the awesome feed back everyone! I've thought about using HOTA but I enjoy the AoE of SS and the stun it makes it easy to kite.
