Couple of quick questions for Nike, and others who are doing PvP.

What DPS would you say is the minimum to shoot for before stacking EHP?

I see you've really stacked dexterity, and dodge rune, can you tell a big difference?

@Shango - yeah dex/dodge works well based on my observation especially when i use Vets warning as a rune. As for the DPS I think 110-120k unbuffed should be decent enough for pvp and then stack a lot of EHP for survival.

if you wish to do some testing with me just add me and we can do a bridge duel so you can experiment which works for you well.

When you figure out your dps, make sure your passives are all non-damage adding and your battle rage is off. That should give you your unbuffed DPS.

I would say aim for at minimum of 90k-100k unbuffed should do the trick. Most of the top pvp barbs have 110-120k (as Nike said).

Lol didn't expected that I'll craft some shoulders which will raise my pvp dummy points. a bit short on STR though! but definitely not bad for pvp.

Nike,

Nice shoulders man! I been getting some good crafts in on my HC barb to, some with high strength, some with more AR, more vit, life, ect. Havent got the perfect combo yet, so I will keep on trying :)

Also I would like to add that your dps doesnt matter so much, its how your dps number is made up. I.E. for pvp, you have high avg dmg, high cd, str, and good cc. AIS can inflate your dps number a lot, which in the end doesnt really play out so well in PVP. So you need to shoot for weps with 1.20 attack spead and high weapon dmg, then make your barb by having high cc/cd/avg/str in other slots. An example would be going rare bracers over lacunis, IK Helm over Mempo, ect. The ais looks cool on paper and is great for pve, but doesnt play out as well in pvp. This is all my opinion, im sure there are some cool builds out there that ais does help, but in my experiance you have to hit big with rend, wep throw, bash, hota, ect. You need to crit to, so thats why CC is important.

Dude,

Major DC death like 5 min ago, done with HC lol. My comp cant hold up, its a shame my barb was pretty sick. I wish acrimony the best of luck, he was a huge help in getting my HC barb up, just wish I could have kept going because I was having a lot of fun. Atleast I made it to para 12 this time lol.

Hey guys,

Hoping you could help me out with my next upgrade. Should i get ice climbers? Innas? an actual "sword"? mempo?

Thanks for any help!

" ice climbers? Innas? an actual "sword"? mempo?" Upgrade them all !)

I would upgrade the pants first, it's cheap and u can enjoy the full set IK abit longer...
Unless you get IC boots with movement speed..very expensive.... or you will find urself walking slowly in the game.
