If you were given a budget of ~1 billion (can be more or less, I'm flexible), what would be a sweet WW barb build? If you look at my current barb's gear, that's what I had when I quit, and I could do any Inferno act easily enough. I just spun around, all through molten/plagued.
I'd like to replicate that in higher MP games. If you can put together a set, or at least give me enough info to make a set, I'll give you "finder's fee" (in gold) to say thank you for getting me back on my feet :)

You are in a pretty good spot. Keep crafting shoulders of vitality to get a higher AR roll. You need to boost your damage by getting more CD. Especially on weapons. That high strength roll is great but some CD would be nice. That EF needs a a socket. Gloves need CD. You basically need to keep grinding and slowly getting better versions of gear you have.
One note. Both of your rings have sub-optimal crit chance. Consider dropping the 3.5 one for an SoJ. You will lose CD there, but the SoJ bonus is more valuable. You can wait a bit on the SoJ if you aren't comfortable losing that crit yet. If you do wait...continue to get more optimal rolls of crit chance on at least one ring and bracers.

was also wondering what my next upgrade(s) should be? Haven't really tried farming in mp10 yet, just b/c I am still trying to obtain as much DE's as I can so I get upgrade my amulet.
Nice barb. I would keep crafting necks to see if you can get a trifecta. That will give you an option to target the next breakpoint. You are currently at 2.5883 / 2.9503. The next BP for you would be the 2.86/3.33 where you would get a pretty solid DPS boost. If you can squeeze in one more slot of AR you would probably notice the difference. A lot of barbs only go with the five slots of AR but I like having a sixth for ubers (and because I'm terrible). You also aren't getting the IK set bonus which means you have even less AR.
Send Niv a friend request in game with your budget...he'll build you a pretty strong set for a bil...
I did have a EF (1117.5, 0.25ias, 160str, 10.5%fear, socket), however during the testing I found that overall the farming speed and paper dps is similar to my current gear, but warrior blood gives better crit damage and bonus elites, and overall experiences seems more fluent to me. I cannot afford a good EF tho.
I am ok with both, would love to hear what you think.

Hey guys. im currently kind of stumpted as to what should be my priority for upgrading my barb, and any and all advice would be appreciated (note that I do usually do WW spec but i just have the stupid skills on because its for super fast VOTA DE farming)
Ok, here is what I was thinking for my 1b setup, what do you think?
Helm; Crit Mempo or IK Helm (if I use all other IK pieces I get 5 piece, which as I understand isn't like, the best thing in the world, but it's nice until I find some other nice upgrades)
Gloves: IK (until I find a nice rare or craft one)
Shoulders: Vile Ward
Waist: IK (3 pc bonus, life steal)
Feet: IK (3pc, move speed)/Fire Walkers/Ice Climbers
Bracers: Crit/Str Lacuni (IAS/Move speed)
Ring2: Cold SOJ
Amulet: ?????? Any good uniques?
Weapons: One will be Echoing Fury, no idea on 2nd. Maybe one of the ones I already have? My MH is(was) pretty good.

Hi, any advice on how to improve the gear on my barb?
As I am in the process of gradually improving the gear, I am looking to spend around 1-2mil per piece of gear now.
Any tips appreciated. :)
stop looking at paper dps as an accurate way to measure ur dmg output. use d3rawr to calculate ur tdps.
i havent put ur set into d3rawr to calculate which would be better in this specific circumstance (but you can). However, i can guarantee that if u use that ef, and stack the proper amount of ias, your kill times will be a lot faster. also, u would be able to drop 5pc ik. 5pc ik is worthless if u are hitting the 2.5 breakpoint, because u are already regenerating a lot of fury. if anything 5pc ik would hurt you because u wont be able to dump fury.
i have no problems giving advice, after all thats why i made this thread in the first place, but at some point, you have to stop looking at others to hold ur hand through every upgrade. i've giving u a very good stepping stone thus far, but its up to u to figure out what u need. if u are unsure why i geared you the way i did i highly suggest reading Pho's guide. this game will offer another side of excitement once u knw how to gear properly, and u can make ur own decisions.
Asfor ur gear, drop both of ur rings. the sooner u learn to focus more dps mods rather than placing ar and vit on jewelry the better. puting ar and vit on jewelry cripples ur ability to stack nice dps on ur jewelry, and also runs the price up greatly. stack all the vit and ar u need on other slots. drop the ar from ur mh ring and consider going with a unity with cd, that way u wint lose any of that huge str, u will actually gain 20-30str. drop ur trifecta ring, as u are still 3%ias away from 2.85 and the excess ias isnt helping any. instead use a non barb cold soj with 6% cold/30% e dmg.
add me in game.. theres a lot of choices that wont work for a 1b budget. i really wanna go through and explain why some of the pieces u listed wont ork, but its best to talk to me in game for one on one advice.
i suggest using my 2.5 or 5m budget sets as a blueprint, they are amazing sets for that cheap of a budget.
Hey back again for a little advice (hope I am not being greedy, just trying to get to the next level)
Just recently switched to 5 piece IK so I can stop losing damn fury, I am on MP10 white killing and blues no yellows unless i can bunch a big group up. Just looking to where I can make the biggest improvement, I can maintain WOTB for an entire 5-6 level clear. Just want to be more efficient HATE EF fear. anyway around that? can I switch MH OH? i know i lose dps from lower DPS main on WW and rend. Thx in advanced, first time around this REALLY helped me alot. I have 150m and prob 300m on gear I can sell. Just wondering my best upgrade options.
you should be having no fury problems when u are using a mempo because u would be hitting the 2.5 breakpoint even if u dropped that unity... my guess is that u are just not quite familiar on how to play just yet and ur fury management isnt very good. once u get the hang of i u should be able to permawrath in ur sleep while hitting the 2.5 breakpoint. so drop that ik helm, get a mempo and drop that unity and get an either a cold soj, or since u are just killing trash mobs, get a rare ring with avg dmg,str,cc,cd (NO AR OR VIT!!). also, consider upgrading that ik chest to mroe vit, ur overall vit is slightly low.
you are MH 2.5883 / OH 2.9503, which means u are 5%ias over ur oh breakpoint. if u can get new lacunis and innas with 9%ias on each, you will be able to drop ur rare gloves for ik gloves and gain the ik 2pc. why in the world are u using animosity? thats a sure sign that you are either not managing ur fury well, or u just have it there for no reason. you should be having no fury problems whatsoever. change animosity to ruthless. ur vit is somewhat low. get higher vit on ur ice climbers.
already finished with ur set bro :)
and for 150M its pretty damn beast.
if you're using ww/rend it might be best to drop OP/KS and switch it to rend and then use bash w/ instigation, just to make it easier to start. as for losing fury in between mobs, dont wait until the mob is completely dead, leave the mobs when they are just about to die and let ur nados do the rest of th work. this will allow u to rgen fury as u run away. also,try ur best to leave each mob while at max fury. do ur spamming of sprint and br while ur in the middle of killing the mob, not towards the end
Hey NIved and Pri.
I made my swaps, and am fairly satisfied with my gear at the moment. Do you see any glaring weaknesses I could remedy? Should have 2-300M again once I unload a few things.
Thanks in advance guys, really appreciate the help.

drop unforgiving u should be having no fury problems while at the 2.5 breakpoint
1) you can get a higher dps MH
2) oh ef with native cd and socket (this will require bloodthirst as passive)
3) 250 str on ik belt (while maintaining the vit of ur current belt)
4) 250 str on mempo
5) unity with cd to replace ur mh ring
6) craft ammys
