So I want to start up playing again, but I gave away all my gear when I quit. I'm sitting on 14 million gold to gear a nude character. So with such a small budget which class do you think I would get the best bang for my buck in paragon farming with? Tempest Rush Monk or Whirlwind/Rend Barb? I can't decide!
Dear Nephalem Abysthor,
You are posting on a Barb forum! Of course the correct response here will be Barb. I think you can build nice R&R (Rend & Run) trash farmer on a low budget at long as you are favoring P-lvling as your main objective over Essence farming or E packs.
I have both a P100 barb and a P100 monk, and barb will be much cheaper to gear. For paragon farming, you can likely farm at twice the XP/hour with a barb compared to a monk.
Here's a good budget guide to get you started:
TBH with 14m your not gonna get a whole lot of anything.
My monk cost me 185m not including gems and that was before the gold glitch.
My barb is a work in progress with minimal value at best.
My advice is pick the class you wanna play not what you can afford.
Have some fun and enjoy the game.
Barb, hands down. We have tons of ways to get free crit chance (Ruthless, Weapons Master, Battle Rage, WotB, etc.) so we don't have to stack as much on our gear. Crit chance is an expensive stat, so this definitely helps. We also have great defensive skills, like War Cry, Bloodthirst, and Nerves of Steel.
You kinda missed my point.
OP has a paragon lvl 55 barb and a paragon lvl 11 monk.
So out of the 2 when you played to get them to that point,what one did you like the best.
Personally I found TR to be a bit boring.
Have never run a ww/rend build.
Something made you quit the 1st time and my guess was boredom.
Find a play style that you will enjoy and go from there.
Play a WD Cob build. I think it's cheaper to get good damage than to try and get a Monk rolling with good enough AR. Barb an be pretty cheap too for a WW build. Lots of items for the sniping.
Best party builds I played so far to date is a CM Wizard / Cyclone monk / 0 dog / HotA or WD CoB
