Feel free to use any build that you want. Even if it is not the most optimal build. If you are having a blast with it keep using it. You can always solo you know, no one is forcing you to join the crowd. Also you can look around on the forums and find ones that would not mind what setup you are using.

I use WH + Brawler... except for MP10 Ubers, then I cave and use WH+BT. Farming other areas, like VOTA I only use the 3% from my OH. There are a few packs that can force me to kite a little, though, I won't lie. Weird ones you wouldn't normally worry about - like Reflect Damage, Plagued, Lightening Enchanted, doesn't matter for the 4th. The combination of have to run through the pools, on top of getting lightning+reflect seems to hurt enough to warrant potion use/globe find every once in a while. Other than that, I really don't see the need to go beyond 3% for normal aspects of the game.

I don't really feel like micro'ing out my HOTAs when I am at maximum rage for the 25% bonus.

I do use Rend+Blood Lust, though with a -2/6 cold/30 BTE SoJ to offset the lack of LS. So the only time the above happens is if I am not generating enough fury (ranged mobs) since I don't use a generator. (Female Barb)

I use WH/BT, there's no shame in it.
Berserker Rage requires billions in gear and low latencies(?) to work.
Brawler is very good against trash, unreliable against Elites and moot against Ubers.

The Barbarian has the best passives of them all, you are a scrub only if don't (ab)use them to suit your gear and needs.
Next thing you know people will be calling Ruthless and Weapons Master user scrubs.

couldn't be further from the truth.

TOP SECRET INFORMATION: DO NOT KILL THE TRASH WHEN YOU COME ACROSS AN ELITE. THEY WILL SURROUND YOU AND BOOOOOOM!!!! 90% UPTIME

I prefer wh/bloodthirst over ik/brawler?


I don't know about you but if I were you, I would never think I am a scrub. Just do whatever you like in this game. Why feeling being a scrub while playing a game? It's laughable.

Please don't quote me and say "WH is a better alternative over IK", just like most other things, gear, playstyle and build all play a huge part in whats viable.

Before SnB, I used IK all the time with brawler, HOTA (skorn), WW/RLTW, SS/HOTA. Now i use WH/brawler, and WH/BT for ubers. IK is a great tool, especially when wanting the flexibility of that other passive slot. If i absolutely NEEDED BT on all the time to keep my WH, I would't use WH, I'd use IK, and gain that flexibility.

Just trying to show that not everyone needs to use the same exact builds/passives, I don't go around telling people they "rely" on brawler as a passive to kill things or anything. (but if you do, you should read some gearing guides). But there is a time and place for any combo of gear/skills IMO.

The main reason ik is better than wh for dual wielders is that you get an EHP/fury/LS boost in one slot. Not so much of an issue for LS skorn users and not so much an issue for SNB barbs.

Just like many things in this game, you have to gear properly to use a WH in a DW setup. People with top flight gear usually have enough sustain with 1 slot of LS provided they dont ignore ehp. The vast majority of people don't have that luxury.

3 elites with berserker rage = happy face
2 elites with berserker rage = happy face
1 elite with berserker rage = happy face

For the most part on IK vs WH it all depends on your weapons. No real all around winner here.

I don't think anyone has actually said that.

It's the WH users that have no LS at all on their gear.
