Team Skorn Discussion

How much slower is ww/hota than standard hota? It seems like a bad build on paper to me, and I didn't even realize you were ditching rend. Giving up rend is giving up the main advantage that we have with Skorn, but I guess there's no room for it. I don't get what purpose ww even serves against ubers. Why even use it instead of HotA (which is also on your skill bar)

If you need an IK belt with your gear, it's going to be a pain to make this work with under 1b.

OH and we Skorn barbs do our testing the manly way, I was carrying Magmus while he was dead. I asked him to die at the start of the fight and then stay in the realm to better simulate how long a WW ballerina barb would take to complete these runs so I had a better idea of what Team Ballerina Barb would produce.......

I lolled irl.

Getting an IK belt for an alt piece shouldn't be any big deal at all. I grabbed one off the AH for 8m with 233 STR, 43 VIT and 75 AR with 2.8% LS. If we can't fit an 8m alt into the budget we may as well just stop now LOL.

Times, I can't really say for sure since like I said I was carrying Magmus (at my request) I wanted to get a better feel for the build and needs of it and not have me just mow through them in less than 5 mins like I usually do.

You can trying to stimulate the damage output of a WW Barbarian, but you can't account for skill. Something that Team Double Penetration has more of ;)

The point is that if you need nearly 9% LS at your DPS, it's going to be a lot dicier with the DPS we'll be having to work with.

@ Sliverfire, it's not going to be a problem. The added LS makes the most of our slower and fewer RLTW ticks to HP maintain. Team Tiny Dancer is who you should be worried about......

There's no point in being worried about a lost cause.

Well did a little more testing and tried my WW/HoTA/Rend build with no fury generator. It did surprisingly well in ubers. Starting the fight is a little more tricky with the no fury and no buffs rule at start but hell that's why the rule is there to show off the skills of the pros.

Unlike Team Tiny Dancer I don't go hit a few things after opening portal to get fury to game the system like they are planning on doing. I went in fully unbuffed and no fury like a man and did it the right way.

Still more testing to do and now to start comparing times....

Oh I will celebrate when The Boss Wayneold buries you, that noob silverfire, and your egocentric half-a-tard lacky Joch....

Hope you like shame with a side of failsauce, because you are going to have to eat a steaming pile of it.

Dammit you guys are making it hard for me to browse this thread silently in the office. I've had to pretend I was sneezing several times already lol.

I especially love my epithet.

The boss Wayneold and the Lord Joch don't got nothing on the noob silverfire.
