Hey Tran, the biggest hole I see is your low CC on your ammy. I like the vit but 6% CC and Int instead of strength really stands out. Craft or buy, but change this, you are giving up a lot of damage here.

Your rare ring, I found one on the AH: Brutal Faze currently bid is 2,333,363 with 17 Hours and 10 Min. Str 167 Vit 74 Attack Speed 9 Critical Chance 4.5 Arcane Resist 46. According to D3up
DPS: +4,348.91 EHP: +18,288.78 and this is just searching for 2 minutes. :)

Hey Tran, are you still tracking that ring? Is it still within your budget? There was another one that was a smaller upgrade for you at 40 buyout.

Hey Wannabee,
I'm at work right now and I just up my bid this morning .. don't think I'll get it but I'll let you know when I get home
40 mil? ... hmm a bit high for me ... my current ring is just 1 mil
no worries as I'm patient so I can just take my time to find upgrades

thanks for letting me know about my amy, the current one is just a place holder for now
the ammies that I bid for usual go for hundreds of mils the dps upgrade are 10K+ dps =) one day I’ll win one of those bid
I’m also collecting mats to craft strength amy now too … just have to pray to the RNG gods =)

I'd say rings. Crit chance, crit damage, attack speed, vit and str.

This is my hc profile, but i guess it doesn't matter since s&b barb is going to be tanky anyway.

I noticed something strange about my level 47 barb last night.

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/mentok1982-1212/hero/27823257

I am using a 660 DPS Spectrum sword that I found in Whimseyshire and in my other hand I had a mighty weapon with a Star Ruby in it that gave it over 105 DPS. Then I picked up the magic shield that you can see in my inventory. Even though it has less strength on it than the mighty weapon (53 to 31) the shield increased my DPS by over 3,000. What?!

This is my first barb that I have played this far so I am wondering if there is a hidden mechanic that increases a barb's damage when they equip a shield. Or is this a strange bug?

EDIT:
My Spectrum has always been in my main hand. All I did was switch my 1 handed mighty weapon for a magic shield.

EDIT 2:
I found an answer that makes sense. Forum search is my friend!

The reason you get higher dps is because of the large difference in the damage on your weapons. Your going from hitting with main then off then main then off so on and so on to hitting with only your main hand ( though animations do not show it this way).
