I've tried Skorn before, not really my cup of tea.

ya, without NV stacks is easy by changing skills, you're probably lack of observations skills :)

mine are all in the same NV stack

I lolled.

Also, what does this e-peen contest have to do exactly with the op's question?

the whole point was that the OP stated he wants to build HOTA but dw and doesn't want a skorn. so i linked to DTX channel a top dw hota barb. his vid and his profile should help.

You need really expensive weapons for DW HOTA (you can't run a low dps offhand like you can with WW). EF is best... you can easily spend just 400m on weapons.

I am thinking to do the same, by forgoing EF and getting 2x high dps soc weapon = =

Hmm, I really don't know what to do now if it's heavily weapon dependent for DW,

I've tried Skorn once before and although it was nice seeing big numbers, I just like the feel of DW better.

Uggh, to suck it up and go with Skorn until I'm rich, or to keep grinding away with ww/sprint >_<

Have a look at my items. 100m right hand ring, 15m left hand ring. 30m head, 15m neck, 150m pants.
Weapon 250m and 30m belt. Self made glove/ chest/shoulder armors.

U can bought a cheaper pants and cheaper ring but a good weapon. Others around 15-30m is enough.

I bought the 100m ring is to replace my file ring. Therefore I can do higher MP levels and get more experience.

Okay,

I don't meant to troll... Just a comment on Hao's right ring.... My left is 4m just for comparison. Put up your ring into mine I get tdps increment of 20k (fully buffed I am 1.4m). That makes me 1.4% more tdps.

I put this up for comparison sake. Your right ring is better than my left but with budget and patient, I believe we can get better value of the gold spend.

All right, 100m is little over price. Need good luck and patient in market.
BTW, ur dps is 1.4m? I thoght it is 140k and my ring will increase dps to 160k.

@Hao,

I am comparing tdps, which you can get from calculator. Since WW barb main damage from tornado, breakpoints and average damage have a big influence on the outcome. Replacing my ring with yours probably will have a few k incremental. The 20k increment is tdps as well, again, about 1.4% increase.

*Just realized this is a HOTA thread. I saw the last few comments on DW. Sorry about that. Anyway, the above statement of increment still applied for WW barb only.
