Link to one of the old threads
I had closed this thread down as life had taken over a bit recently. Thankfully I have been able to shuffle things around and all is good as rain.
I Just wanted to thank everybody for their kind words and encouragement to get this thread back up and running. I will continue to do my very best to help those in need.
I started this thread to basically help those who were lost and overwhelmed by the giant walls of text they were confronted with upon looking at some of the fantastic guides written in Raging Koala's sticky thread. I started this for people who didn't have the time to sit down, with a cold flannel on their heads, and sift through it all. People who generally dont think one guide, one size fits all, people who want specific, taylored advice, just for them.
Most of all, I wanted to start this thread to give the barb community a place where they could ask someone anything at all, whose advice they would be given, could be trusted as being useful.
Do know that I have upgraded my gear since the original thread.
Here's what it said
A lot of people have been adding me in game lately asking for my suggestions and help. (somewhat Flattered as there a a lot of people who already do this)
While i am happy to help anybody, please post your questions in this thread, as in game is a lot harder for me to answer your questions and give advice. (not to mention a pain in the !@# cos that's when I am playing)
I can clearly see your profile in the forums and can also check d3rawr and give tangible numbers to work off.
So if you have any questions related to gear, upgrades, skill choices etc for your barb I'd be happy to help you here.
Am i the most knowledgeable? no don't claim to be
Do i have the best gear myself? no but for 160mil all up I crap all over some people who have spent 1 billion +
I guess what I am saying is I know where to spend Gold for a good effect.
I see the same mistakes over and over again and more often then not can imporve upon where a person is at with their toon.
TLDR - I can hep you with any gear and build questions that you may have. Just ask, also it's helpful if you post your profile link and/or budget

I'm seriously at a loss. I could get a crit Mempo and bankrupt myself, but I really don't know if I wanna do that yet. Maybe some new weaps idk. I'm trying to reach 300 or close DPS unbuffed and I have a decent way to go. Maybe craft and get rid of lacunis? Thanks.
While 300k dps is a nice goal, it's pretty damn hard to reach with a well geard barb, lets keep this on the back burner and get your gear sorted first. It's easy to reach 300k dps unbuffed but it won't mean your performance is any good, I tend to appraoch things from this persepctive.
I myself, can run with a dagger OH wep and only have 150kdps, but hit 2.7 mil tdps. It's all about synergy, not just the paper number that you have on screen.
Things that stand out to me are that you have no SOJ and very low all resist. Id focus on these things first (your defence) before you start adding damage.
I can see why your overwhelmed a great number of things come to mind, in directions that you can go in.
I'd go frist with an IK helm, mempo's are good but save ur money. The IK helms CC will allow for better fury managment.
Open socket purple gem
Vit would be a bonus
The Ik helm will give you the two set Ik bonus adding another greatly need 60 points of all resist.
Your current all resist of 325 just doesn't cut it at higher mp levels
Next thing id work on is those gloves
Try and get
45% + CD
Str as much as you can
vit is a bonus
Then would come the SOJ
6 elemental damage, any element cos your running Hota it wont matter, cold will make the price skyrocket
15 max fury - every 5 fury adds 1cc for HOTA
BvE as close to 30 as you can get
- hota reduction of 3
This ring will speed up your elite kills dramatically and reduce your fury burn so you can keep spamming Hota, you wont kill trash as quick so you'll keep your fury gen source much longer which is really helpfull.
Next ring id get is a trifecta to make up for the lost attackspeed
Get as much CD as you can afford on one.
Then id get a higher CC pair of lacunis
Looking at your DPS gains:
Primary Attribute + : 202.68
Crit Hit Chance % + : 5754.12
Crit Hit Damage % + : 749.03
Attack Speed % + : 2838.54
Elemental Damage % + : 5336.45
Min. Damage + : 289.24
Max. Damage + : 289.24
you can see what stat gives you the damage.
Another option and entiely different approcah (the one i'd go for myself) is to get an IK belt for the two set ik bonus, more fury more all resist and opens up options to move the CD off that WH belt and put it on a CD EF with open socket wep.
get 15 max fury on an IK belt if you choose this direction.
Then get a SOJ like one listed above
Then get a nice bifecta unity for the other ring with as much CD as you can afford.
Again new lacunis with higher CC.
There are also many other options and variants to what I have listed (shifting around stats), perhaps you may want to think about what direction you'd like to head in.
I don't often, but Yes, I can do if your desperate, I recently build part of one for Vinspino#6300, he has yet to pick it up but I am pretty happy with it.
What build and budget are you thinking of?
You can hit me up in game (i'll be on a bit later) if you like and discuss it there.
I need to find another 5% IAS somewhere, I'm trying to roll some new gloves but it's not going so well.I use legacy zuni boots from time to time but it's not ideal.
What about lacuni's?
You'll have the movespeed on the inna's and lacunis and can can make up your lost vit on Non ms iceclimbers and probably save yourself a bit of gold to. Ms iceclimbers are way more expensive than non MS iceclimbers.
Had you considered this?
you could always get AR on the lacnuis as well.
I take it your going for a viable, very high breakpoint build.
Well everywhere you have a CD stat is low, rings amy gloves all have a low CD stat, rings can roll upto 50 CD amies 100 for example, this adds a lot of damage. Also you have no AD (average damage) on your rings and amies this can add a hell of a lot of damage.
Looking at your dps gains gives me a bit of insight and I hope you to.
Primary Attribute + : 188.31
Crit Hit Chance % + : 5051.63
Crit Hit Damage % + : 732.74
Attack Speed % + : 2617.23
Elemental Damage % + : 5155.94
Min. Damage + : 185.5
Max. Damage + : 185.5
You attacks per sec is : 1.97 there is a viable breakpoint is at 1.67
everywhere you have attackspeed and don't need it stack CD there instead
Get AD on your rings
Other than that better versions of your gear you currently have
i think you cam beign to see how it adds up
20CD points x 732 = 14,640 for example -
you have room for 40 on an amy
How much room on rings?
How much room on other items where you don't need attackspeed?
does this help you out a bit?

WW is a good choice, I can put something pretty nice together for that, just Add me in game and we can discuss further there. I'll be on in half an hour.
the attack speed is just boredom but I usually use a soj and a 8 ias uni when im grinding or leveling, also I plan on eventually getting a teeming necklace which will get rid of 9ias right there so I kinda need some ias on other places but good advice thanks for the help
I just came back to the game after about a year. I'd like to be able to get up to mp7 farming, but only have 7 million gold. Is it worthwhile for me to upgrade anything or just keep farming what I'm doing (4) until I get more gold?
you can make significant improvements over your current gear for 7 mil so yes
There are a lot of problems with your current gear, you have no attackspeed for one, you have very low vit, and you aren't using the skills that can benefit you the most because of it.
Where do you farm mostly?
do you want to stick with dual wield or go with a onehander like a skorn?
do you just want a set that can solo ubers on mp10 for example?
You have quite a few options availbable to you, I can help you with either.
Hey guys im in need of some help, I have a barb its geared but I guess not corectly, as of rightnow I have a power leveling service and im trying to speed my runs up, I could use more dps and my fury seems to vanish to the point where its not even usefull, if somone could get back to me I could go into details, would be much appreciated
Right now I'm farming for keys. I'd like to be able to farm mp7-8 for keys, elites, and XP.
I don't care either way about what weapons I use, so long as I can farm much faster and more effectively than I do. Its very confusing after being gone so long.
