Diablo® III

T.D.P. Dual Wield discussion

Another benefit of the IK helm is that it can be used for the 2 set bonus if we decide to go with Tyrael's for the elite bonus. I have both an IK and a non-crit mempo, and when testing stuff out last night the extra fury generation from the crit chance was noticeable despite dropping a breakpoint while doing so. Mempos do have the advantage of the AR, though it may be possible to get that as a random mod on the IK helm, or if that's too expensive, even physical res might be useful.

Now that Monster Power has been nerfed, there's no sense in using Throw unless we're doing this to show a different spec.


Yeah but throw is fun and looks cool as hell in conjunction with the other skills...and helps me whoop on Goblins!

I have been wanting to integrate weapon throw for quite some time, but just so weary about running without a fury generator.

I am also trying to get a a strong LS mainhand so I can swap out the BT passive.

It's a blast. That's why I stuck to it for so long -- it was never about efficiency for me. It was always about having fun with a game I felt was starting to lose its appeal. Now that I'm in Hardcore, the consequences are much more dire, so the appeal of this game is back.

Some good comments on the build. If you're doing that damage in your profile without any buffs, you can get by on 3% leech and using throw for any circumstances that might cause issues. Although a bigger health pool wouldn't hurt ;)

Agreed. I would prefer universal resistances though. Mempo of Twilights without critical hit chance is like using a main hand without a socket.

Yeah that's my unbuffed with passives and follower. Check out the SoJ on my female barb. What if I swap that in? Also is the way to generate fury really just to walk around and get hit a little bit? lol seems so weird to me.

P.S. I'm sorry i'm prying into weapon throw build so much, I know that isn't he intention of this thread. Feel free to ignore these posts when you guys are getting down to more business lol.

You can generate fury by attacking with your "default attack". Since you don't have fury, your left click skill that requires fury will just do a normal swing.

No idea if I explain that correctly, but that's what I do when running 0 fury generator with skorn runs.

Its a little bit more complex than that. You can only use your default attack if you have a target-able skill. The "Pure WW" revenge build is particularly difficult because the only one of your skills that will proc the default attack is WW. Since it's a channeled ability, you can only default attack once, then wait to get till you can start your battle rage up since you'll just start WWing instead of default attacking again.

Things like Rend or HotA are target-able skills and will proc the default attack until you hit the 20 fury to use the skill.

What time does everyone (zylog, WayneOld, and Nived) plan on getting together? We seem to have a big headstart on the Skorn Barbs. Death seems deathly afraid.

@ LightofEast

They are free to choose any gear within the 1B limit but need to balance the quantity v quality of gear that they purchase. The more different pieces, the lower the overall quality of gear.

Thanks heaps to everyone who's contributed to this thread. I know you weren't trying to educate, but even so I've found your discussions the most helpful since Phat's gearing advice.

Go team DP!

Well, I am using my Revenge/OP:KS build....and I must say....I think I am going to have a hard time against Maghda solo.....but, I plan on farming an entire set of machines and giving this a shot here very soon to see how it works. I definitely am a little rusty, more on the end of fury management than anything, which used to be my strength.

Thanks again for donating gear Morpheus and Nived....I needed it.

blackthorn's set is a good alternative as well but then you have to get MS on your boots. It could save you lots of gold for the more important stat slots.

The entire point is to educate :)

That's why Morpheus funded this challenge.

Okay, I think I'm ready to get my Uber on. I'm collecting keys. I also figured out something for the non-fury generator (you will need to switch your key bindings around), so whenever you get on WayneOld, hit me up.

Am I the only one that popped a bottle of champagne when this happened.

Monumental ground we're breaking here gentlemen...

From foes to friends? :D
