I'll let others post the obvious basic ones, and just leave two of my favorites here. (Partly so that I don't lose them myself) Two almost polar opposite build/specs, but both perfectly optimized for their respective purposes. I'd say neither are for beginners, but are worth looking for what to strive for.

Lorenze's "ultimate efficiency" thread- http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7004402493#13

DAKKON's Skorn MP10 thread- http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7415515590

If I end up needing to delete this post, lmk.
Bump this.
Thanks Silverfire, I don't see any need to delete your post :)

I'll be working on this for as long as it takes, just wanted to get a rough outline started and edit it along the way.

Ooooo, cool, I made it on there...

For Paragon Farming this little gem is hidden in Uberjager's guide 2nd version on page 10:

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7199913320?page=10

It outlines his paragon farming method and him and Nubtro have an active discussion regarding it's effectiveness and ability to hit 70 mill xp/hr + (rumor has it up to 90 mill xp/hr)

Of course all this will be altered once the new XP levels are released with the patch. But for now it works wonderfully.
Found it after searching though your posts Koala lol

Anyone that reads this reply and request sticky, that way these helpful threads and links will be on the front page!

Sticky requested
Koala. Nice men. I'll start digging for old threads and potential buid prospect for you to post.
Also a shout to everyone:

EVEN IF YOU DON'T OFFEN COME TO THIS FORUM, OR HAVE DON'T WANT/NEED TO POST, THROW A STICKY REQUEST TO THIS THREAD. THIS SHOULD BE A GOOD SOURCE OF INFO AND DIRECTIONING FOR NEWBIES AND PEOPLE WHO ARE AFTER DIFFERENT BUILDS.

Sry, for the caps.

Of course you made it, very helpful info and testing comes from your way :)

Yes, that farming route/strategy is very good for right now. I also throw in Arreat crater 2, but the total exp/min is the same either way from what I've gathered.
Thx for the link!

Thanks LordZeus and Ravlaor, any help is much appreciated :D
Upvoted. You may want to post my old Weapon Throw/Rend/WW Thread. I don't know if Acky posted it. If he did, I forget.
Thanks acrimony!
Heres your thread if you wanted to change anything in it to bring it more up to date as well :)
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7004011417?page=1
Some good links above.

Also add this: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5149150485

This is a really old thread, but it's a classic. Dunno if the links in the thread still work. I think it still has the best explanation of any thread I have read regarding EHP and "diminishing returns." Great for any class, but I think it should be required reading for anyone serious about playing a barb, especially a barb that is flexible enough to use builds other than whirlwind.

Also talks some about how the barb healing skills and gear based heals scale vs increasing EHP and increasing mitigation.

Sry, for the caps.


lol no you aren't :)
Requested sticky. :3

@ Everyone:

Guys please request sticky. We need this up.

Edit:
Anyone that knows good subjects to be added here are more than welcome to post.

Hopefully this will facilitate some questions that Barbarians may have.

Couple questions, is there a max character input for a post within a thread? Like if we link and categorize all the threads, will it fit in one post? I notice Uberjaeger reserved several reply spots in his threads, not sure if that was to help separate the topics, or if he was going to hit an input limit.


It was to make things more organised. >.<

^^ helped me a lot when I was starting my barb when it comes to DT WW build.
Yeah, I have requested a sticky, and I encourage everyone else to do the same....this thread gives me a place to pull a bunch of links from when people make the "How do i....." topics.
Sweet more links and stickys :D
Anyone know other good EHP/DPS calculators other than D3rawr?
This needs to get back to the top...I am relying on referencing this too often now.
Oh my Seismic Slam Guide made it into this thread, nice :)

Very useful thread, requested sticky.
