I think a top end tank barb can die to a top end dps dh with rapid fire, the trick would be getting them to stand still for 2 maybe 3 seconds. So it would require a combo of maybe smoke in close, fan of knives, proc thrill of the hunt then channel rapid fire from point blank range, so when they run you get a second or two more hits before you start to miss. maybe use mark for death(on hit hatred) and rain of vengeance(darkening cloud) as well, just to stack some extra tdps. But you would have to hit all at once so no random shooting that might proc thrill or drain hatred before the burst. maybe set caltrops torturous ground and chain it with thrill for 4 seconds or something, vault into them as they run set caltrops again, rapid fire another 2 seconds... Im sure theres a dh that can pull a tactic like this off somewhere out there...
unless blizzard going to change players to no longer elite status, then my 30% damage reduction from items don't work, and nerf my sprint, if not I will be a terrorist!
Nerfing vs elites wont work, soj already more then counters the elite resist from blackthornes, in fact, most barbs run 4 lots of 7% which multiplies out to ~25% and soj grants 30%,+6% elemental, nerf vs elites and those barbs take even less damage, and, can stack higher dps gear since they are no longer obligated into BT set/litany ring, it even makes 5 piece IK viable as a tanking option, so yeah even more fury. Not to mention all the DH's who rely on soj for cost reduction suddenly loose a huge chunk of dps.
:) But by all means nerf it, I would love to have twice as much passive fury generation and extra dps for the same relative tanking ability. Much cheaper gear too.
