edit 2:

Well folks, it seems we have gotten to part 10 of the S&B QA, I'm glad everyone has stuck around thus far in continuing to help the S&B community grow together, although we had a few hick ups in the past threads, let's continue to have this grow and be professional.

"I don't always play barbarian, but when i do, i prefer to use a shield. Slay happy my friends."

elow is a list of S&B'rs who are very knowledgeable when it comes to gearing. Please be aware that some do not get on anymore, but I'm sure they wouldn't mind if you added them for farming or S&B questions. If you are adding these people for gearing advice, please indicate so in the message box when you send the FR, thank you.

Wow. Congrats on part 10. I must say this topic and many of the posters have helped me many times in the past. Well done and bravo to this community.

Newest member, reporting in for duty! I thank you all for the warm welcome in the previous post. (%

Things I learned in the past 2 days:

- My Barb is actually MP6-capable, once I figured out what to do with her

- Realized I can actually keep WotB up, then it dawned on me that I don't need to keep it up forever, since I can always reactivate it after 2 min

- Figured out I don't need to keep clicking with HotA, in order to reapply it - just scroll the pointer over to a new monster

- Noticed that I pretty much don't need to reapply Bash more than once every 5 sec, to refuel with Fury - the crits from HotA do that

- If I run out of Fury before reaching the next skirmish, I can smash some scenery along the way to refuel my Sprint

Things I haven't been too happy about in the past 2 days:

- I have to back-track, once WotB is over, to pick up my loot (and with WotB lasting as long as it does - that can be a long and boring trek)

- Having no PUR is pure PITA and sadly - mine is on the boots, where it's blocking a substantial potential upgrade

- For some reason, sometimes my Barb suddenly stops attacking and in a huge crowd it may take me a second to realize I'm not doing anything.

Things I haven't been able to figure out in the past 2 days:

- If not using the Blood Lust rune, does Rend proc any LS from gear?

Hiya boss lady, don't worry about this. Seems perma WotB is going to be dead anyway so learning to play without it now will benefit everyone later.

Henry I'm logging on now. :)

I actually feel some sort of guilty relief, after learning that. I do like the hyper-mode and every time I let it slide off, I get the sensation of screwing up, while at the same time there's the nagging urge to run over to every yellow that drops. I'm beginning to understand how a particularly indecisive breed of puppy must feel, when standing between two fire hydrants.

Then I officially and unanimously vote this to be my favorite Barb skill! Thanks for clarifying this for me, henry! (%

I remember when the thread started. I was excited I wasn't the only snber out there and that guys had really gotten a lot of dps when using a shield. I don't think I would have continued to play this game if it wasn't the snb community. Thanks guys

Morning bump to get back on the 1st page.

Had a few thought about the upcoming changes and had a thought.

Had a pair of BT pants and belt sitting and threw them on. Added 60k ehp and 400 some LOH plus a slew of HP as well.
With the upcoming potential of LS changing will the BT pair be more viable with the vit bonus and LOH.
It feels pretty stable but did take a hit to my resists as no double socket BT pants with high str and all resist.
Just cant have it all I guess. Might try it with a WH and see how that feels.

Edit. WH is really smooth with 3%ls and 400 loh. Damage is good at 187k unbuffed but resists are a bit lower than I like.

i'm done with it, but not sure if I want to use the shoulders I have, or just give the whatever gold I have tomorrow + the rest of the set away, went with skorn, as I already had the skorn(so just purchased everything else minus that & shoulders - good shoulders are like 150m+ =( )

Any sword and boarders in here hoarding some insanely high EHP gear? I'm interested!

Easy one (and i think already answered, but im not able to find it):

Since block amount is only betwen 3706-4706, its 100 armor more important than 5% block rate?

I mean: 1200 armor with 25% chance to block > 1100 armor with 30% chance to block?
