Diablo® III

DW and S&B giveaways- Winners

Winners have been drawn! Congrats to:

grimslim #1537 for dual wield
Duunken #1788 for S&B



Thanks Pelly#1400 for donating 60M towards this.

Dual wield: http://d3up.com/b/898123/60m-dual-wield-set
S&B: http://d3up.com/b/898137/60m-s-b-set

Both sets have 24% MS and should be capable of soloing MP10 ubers fairly easily. I haven't tried, but based on their stats, it shouldn't be a problem. If people really want me to record some runs, I can do so. They're both heavily slanted towards survivability over damage, to the point where even I'd admit its sort of overkill.

The dual wield set's sheet DPS is rather low, but tDPS is a fairly respectable ~1.2M, and close to 1.5M with berserker rage. Hits 2.51 APS on both weapons buffed. Only 10.9% fear with an EF on the off-hand. Cold SOJ of course, but I couldn't bring myself to use a non-barb one, so it has 26% BvE with 2 rend reduction for some utility for a total of 5 when added to the belt. With 5.3% LS, bloodthirst is not necessary, and with 64K HP, 600 AR and 5600 armor, neither is war cry. It could frankly use some more crit chance, which is a bit of a challenge with a SoJ and non-cc mempo.

The S&B set has 34% block, 3 HotA reduction with a 26 BvE SoJ, 4 rend reduction, 64k HP, and 650 AR and 6300 armor. Perfect for tanking for your friends.I would suggest using bloodthirst in higher MP's even though it has 3% LS, because the DPS level is a little low, though still has respectable HotA crits of over 700k . Hits 2 APS buffed which is plenty for this playstyle.

Post here if you have a level 60 barb, preferably at least paragon 10 or so, and this gearset is an upgrade for it, and better than the gear on any other characters you may have. Just going to randomly pick a different winner for each set. If you only want to be considered for one of them, just say so. Will pick a winner a week from today.

This is for players who are actually in need. You must not have any character which is worth more than 60M for me to consider you.

If you're rocking a full set of marquise gems you obviously don't need any of this gear.

Very good thing you're doing here Silver. I am part of a Philanthropy group that does something similar. You are definitely better and picking up good deals on the AH than I am though :)

Yeah what you guys are doing is great. I'm not quite as active as you guys.

The goals are to help players who are stuck and also illustrate how to gear properly, particularly for harder content.

he's a hardcore WoW player just recently started to play D3 with me, he's still clearing Hell and learning the machanic of the barb atm. Your set would give him a really nice start if he qualify for it.

Thank you!
