Dec 29, 2012 1 million gold Azmodan MP10 challenge EDIT: Current record holder is Jacked: 691k budget, 7 min 55 second clear time. Ok, so inspired by the use of a gear set Uberjager constructed for under 1 million gold and it's effectiveness I have devised a challenge for anyone who would like to participate. I was able to construct the following gear set for under 1 million gold: Flawless Square Emerald - 3,920 Flawless Square Ruby (6) - 3,750 Flawless Square Amethyst - 368 Mainhand Demonic Gavel - 250,000 Offhand Gash Tempest - 11,111 Shoulders Cavalry Tooth - 1,835 Bracers Lacuni Prowlers - 60,000 Pants Striders Asylum - 50,000 Chest Northlander's Plate - 50,000 Boots Distance Passage - 8,000 Helm Scowling Disdain - 1,500 Ring Offhand Oath Heart - 50,000 Ring Mainhand Bond Rage - 80,000 Amulet Impaling Omen - 75,000 Belt IK Tribal Binding - 44,000 Gloves IK Irons - 39,900 For a total of: 729,084 gold AH proof video: My Azmodan clear on MP10 took me 9 minutes exactly Vid: I engage at 0:31, kill at 9:31. Now, I am not going to say it was took me 3 tries, and learning that I couldn't stand in his pools of stuff on the floor....but I was able to pull it off nonetheless. And so, I would like to see if anyone can do it either in the same time with less gold spent, or less time with about the same gold spent (no more then 779,084 gold to qualify for reward). I found all this gear on the AH within minutes of each other, didn't scour the AH for days or anything looking for deals....obviously. For the first 10 people to accomplish this task I will refund the investment of gold on their gear, plus an additional 1 mill gold. Free video software if you need it: Also, this goes out to prove that you don't NEED a ton of gold in order to beat the hardest content, you just need some patience, skill, a good build, and strategic gearing. Just post a vid on here of you beating my time, and a vid of your AH bids and I will make sure to get you your gold ASAP. You are allowed to use any build or style of play to accomplish this goal, and followers are optional. Good luck everyone who participates. (Current gear set is on profile, I'll leave it up there for the next couple days) COMPLETED AND VARIFIED: DBoy187: budget 582k, 8 min 53 second clear time Picture of purchases: Video of fight: Reward: DBoy has generously donated his winnings from the challenge to Reasoning, vid of presentation to follow Jacked: 691k budget, 7 min 55 second clear time.

Dec 29, 2012 Next Upgrade ... It's getting a lot harder to find upgrades at this point, but having seen Barbs with 300k+ DPS, I know there is still lots of room for improvement. I've only got 7m at the moment, but I'm wondering what I should look for in my next upgrade, and how much I should expect it to cost. Any ideas/suggestions are appreciated.RemyZ2 Dec 29, 2012

I have some gold stashed away that ive been saving up, and i'm looking at the most bang for my $$$.

Dec 28, 2012 New barb looking for suggestions I leveled my barb up to 60 quite a long time ago, and was thinking about building it up so I can farm faster then normally. I have 46m gold to start out with, but I wouldn't like to spend it all at one time if possible. Need suggestions on what to do first with my barb: Dec 28, 2012
Dec 28, 2012 Upgrade me for less than 1m My friend's new barb, I haven't played in a while and I feel generous to buy him some new gear.

Please include stats I should look for, I would like to get him a few pieces but my main goal is to up his DPS for 1m.BdiZzLe1 Dec 28, 2012

Dec 28, 2012 WW self spinning I created an HC WW barb. Got killed at lvl 58 through my inattention. Building a new one.

Dec 28, 2012 MP 10 should not be your goal EDIT on 10/13/12 With the new addition of: It has made my argument void. The addition of bonus item drops depending on monster level is a wonderful idea, and I thank Blizz for adding this in. I have posted this in several other threads looking for answers from all the barbarians that claim they are going to be able to do MP 10 and they should be able to farm it right away with their high EHP or incredibly elite question is, why? MP 10 wasn't designed to be farmed, and it is the LEAST efficient way to farm. If you have seen my posts elsewhere and this is a repeat, I apologize, but I am just looking for an answer from all the barbs running around telling everyone 1.05 will eat them alive: XP and GF/MF bonus reference: Prove to me that farming at a higher MP level albeit at a slower pace is more effective. If I am farming MP 3, which is a very comfortable, and fast pace with my current build and gear (act 3 full clear in 45 min) My XP % looks like this: 100% base XP 75% neph valor 30% monster power bonus 31% ruby in helm for a total of 236% XP from each mob. Also, my magic find looks like this: 100% base 75% neph valor 200% paragon and gear bonus 75% monster power bonus for a total of 450% MF. If I were to run through MP 10 the values would then be 366% increased XP and 625% MF and GF, and that's considering that I am able to leave my Ruby in my helm (which I'm not). That equates to only a 55% increase of XP and 39% increase of MF and GF overall, and running act 3 can't be expected to be completed in under 3 hours I would assume on a good day which is more then 400% slower then my clear time on MP 3. It simply is not worth it to try to farm on MP10 by a substantial margin. Also, with more magic find or increased XP% gear these % increases from monster power become even less significant, and with all monsters being level 63 on MP 1 it's not like you are finding better gear either.Even at MP 5 the increase is only a net gain of 13% XP and 11% MF/GF, so if someone can run MP 3 10-15% faster then they can MP 5, it still makes sense to run MP 3.Wayneold85 Dec 28, 2012

Dec 28, 2012 Where to add EHP? Like title says, got a budget of 30m looking to add some EHP, preferably vit, somewhere. Kinda stuck between ammy and mempo, both would be expensive. I don't really like where my rings are at but upgrading them, especially adding vit/life%, is completely undo-able at my budget. Thoughts pl0x?Aracknid7 Dec 28, 2012
Dec 28, 2012 Need help choosing GG weapons for WW I recently just hit the lottery on a Tal's ammy that sold for 450m. So I'm currently sitting on 420m and looking for some advice. I know my gear is lacking, I only have about 10-15m invested in my barb so far and I do have plans for more asi, cc, and cd. But I would really like to put a good chunk of change into some awesome weapons that I can use for a long time. My only problem is I'm not sure exactly what I need. I like to play WW so I was thinking a mainhand mace/axe and a good EF for my offhand. I just don't know which stats to look for on each to get the most bang for my buck. For the mace/axe I know I obviously want base crit, and socket. And for the EF I want a socket... But as far as figuring out the str, vit, attack speed, and lifesteal. Where do I want to try to get those? I'm looking to hopefully get both weapons for 250m or less so I still have money for much needed gear improvements. And any advice here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for any and all help!McGridDLe8 Dec 28, 2012

Dec 28, 2012 Nats ring + barb? I havent been folllowing up on barb gear since I switched to wizard. I found a nats ring today with 81 strength 89 dex 79 AR 8 IAS 27% CD 194 life regen I've seen lots of CM wizards use nat's set for the 2 piece crit bonus along with the boots, but would barbs do something similar? There's less than 1 page of rings which have stats similar to this with cheapest being 100M so I'm having trouble valuing this. How much would it be worth approx? ThanksAstynax0 Dec 28, 2012

Dec 28, 2012 Newb Sprint WW barb looking for advice Hello all, This is the link to my barb profile Would like to ask others here for advice specially with gear. As of right now, I am currently stucked and I feel that I cannot improve further. The next upgrade in the AH is costing 10m and more. I currently have less than 1m in my stash and I think I cannot farm the necessary gold to improve. And also with my gear, I can farm mp3 no problem. Just not as fast. On mp4, i already die to some elites multiple times. Please give advice if you think my gear should be enough with mp4 and im just lousy on playing. Also what do you think will be better and more efficient in farming. - Farm on mp1, dont pick up rares just focus on legendary drops and hope that a sellable legendary drops.( currently all my legs are crap ) - Farm on higher mp for better chances of good legendaries to drop. ( i am not sure if the quality of legendaries improve as mp level increases) Also, please feel free to critique my gear. I have a feeling that Im stacking too much vitality. Thanks in advance :Dhybr33d3 Dec 28, 2012
Dec 28, 2012 Looking for higher level barbs... to throw decent gears my way if you can.I cant get anything past 60k damage. Would love to progress further in paragon also.

Dec 28, 2012 New to Inferno and Struggling? Are you struggling with your barb even in low MPs? Well welcome to my Christmas barb set giveaway. I have a full S&B barb set that should work in MP5 without much trouble. I recently used the set in an under 1M gold challenge, so the value of the items isn't terribly high (stocking stuffers, not big gifts), but it is well balanced gear. If you have millions in gear already, this set won't be very interesting for you, but if you are new to inferno and would like to clear it or start some farming this is perfect. Just respond to this thread with why you need the set and its yours. You'll just have to wait til later tonight when I'm online to receive it.Klawman12 Dec 28, 2012
Dec 28, 2012 Bonus set value not counted? So if I added up correctly my reduction from elite damage should be 37% yet it shows only 30%. The extra 7% comes from BT's 4 piece bonus. Can someone confirm? Overall this set is pretty fun towards elites with 37% damages reduction from elites and 36% damages towards elites from my SOJ + set bonus. I've dance in some pretty nasty stuff some elite pac in mp10 dishes out but the lower dps really does take a long time to bring them down.ADAKAR0 Dec 28, 2012
Dec 28, 2012 Whirlwind Barb: Looking for help. Hey everyone!! I've gotten my gear to the point where I don't know what to do next to get it to the next level. I'm switching between weapons at the moment to see which I like more. I've been switching between the Bul'Kathos weapons and an EF main hand with one of the Bul'Kathos weapons as off-hand. Depending on which weapon set I use, my dps ranges from 55k to 63k ish.. What do I need to improve to bridge the final gap between that range and 100k+?Lightzypher9 Dec 28, 2012

Dec 28, 2012 Killing Elites in MP6+ So I've been trying to get a key in the Fields of Misery for some time now and it's bringing me a lot of misery. I had been trying in lower MP and after many attemps (20+) I still couldn't get a key, so I tried a few times in MP5, then a few more in MP6 and a couple in MP7. I seem to be fine with regular monsters and I can take down the Key Warden, however especially around the MP6+ level I have a lot of difficulty with elites. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Dec 28, 2012 Left before MP/Inferno Machines - What now? I just got back after leaving before they introduced MP levels and the Inferno Machines. I've since bought a handful of upgrades, and even found a couple as well. I was wondering what are all the WW barbs running these days in terms of routes? I use to do Alkaizer Act 3 runs for pure leveling speed, but with these new key wardens and such - anyone have suggestions for efficient runs for a WW barb for Act 1-3 +4? I would imagine its better now to mix it up and get a nice hellfire ring, after that is it back to alkaizer runs? Also, currently running MP5 rather comfortably. Edit: If anyone has some suggestions as to what to upgrade next, I'd love to hear it.BlackJack2 Dec 28, 2012

Dec 28, 2012 Something needs to be fixed I've no idea where I've gone wrong in my gear, hit 60 a couple weeks ago. Been farming keys/paragon since then. Got lucky on a few drops as well as constantly scouring the AH for good deals. Everyone I see has an upwards of 120kish DPS and I'm still bordering on the 70k~ mark, still manage to do MP4 fine and MP5 isn't so bad either but it feels like I'm missing something fundamental in either my gear or build. Unrelated note how big of a jump are ubers compared to the normal campaign? Or rather whats the general conversation rate for MPX? IE if i do an uber on MP3 it'll feel like I'm fighting MP5 etc. Two Act 3 keys away from having 3 keys, thinkin about tryin em out but I don't want to completely waste em.Catrix4 Dec 28, 2012
