The Barbarian Gear Reference Guide

Barbarian
Diablo 3 Patch 1.08
Last major revision: 14 October 2013

Winds of change coming March 2014. Don't bother too much with prep-ing for RoS -- Vanilla gear enchanting is dead in the water.

Before we begin, I would like to state that there are a lot of different ways you can gear yourself. Information found herein are gleaned from various sources. The guide only covers some of the more common / popular gearing options. It does not cover every possible gear combination. It is largely meant to help you get started and to act as a quick reference.

This guide assume you have some basic knowledge of the Barbarian class (i.e. what is a Black weapon, difference between tDPS and eDPS, what are breakpoints and ticks, how to dump Fury to sustain Wrath of the Berserker, etc). These are beyond the scope of this guide. If you wish to learn more, you can refer to the forum sticky maintained by RagingKoala#1984 @ http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7591980848

If you need help or advice on set building, just hop over to Planet#6460’s gearing thread @ http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/10587459129

About The Sample Sets:
Unless stated otherwise, the snapshots are from a fully buffed Paragon 0 Barbarian.

About The Recommended Budget:
The amount of gold you should have if you’re planning to purchase the gear using buyouts.

Starter Shopping List [SB.SL]

This section talks about the stats you'll need to gear a basic cookie-cutter Barbarian. If you’re new to the class or the game, then I hope it would help you build a basic farming set.

Bidding is recommended if you wish to maximize your limited budget. You can easily save 25-50% on most items, but some degree of luck and patience is required.

WINNING LOW BIDS REQUIRES TIME + PATIENCE + LUCK

For new players, I would recommend that you put more emphasis on Vit than Str. Starting out, you should aim for about 40K - 45K Life (50K - 60K for high MP). I know it’s nice to see 150K sheet DPS, but not at the expense of your Life. Remember, a dead Barbarian deals no damage.

Ultra-Low Budget Shopping List [ULSB.SL]

Check out either of these ultra-low budget guides:
EJFudd#1201 @ http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9377149483
Cartographer#1273 @ http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9792650522

I would like to add that there are a lot of magical and rare Normal and Nightmare gear that will fetch a pretty penny on the AH. It may be a more productive (and lucrative) use of your time to farm either difficulty levels on MP10 instead of camping the AH trying to lowball some low-end Inferno gear.

Low Budget Dual Wield Shopping List [DWSB.SL]

Recommended Budget: 2.5m - 10m

For ease of future upgrade, the IAS recommended here may be higher than what you need to reach the breakpoint.

2.23 / 2.51 APS ——— 2 IAS Pieces (17% IAS) ——— Echoing Fury + Rare Sword
2.51 / 2.51 APS ——— 4 IAS Pieces (34% IAS) ——— Rare Mace + Echoing Fury
2.51 / 2.86 APS ——— 4 IAS Pieces (35% IAS) ——— Echoing Fury + Rare Sword

————————————||| Helm
I would suggest you put an Amethyst into the socket. More Life is generally recommended over the Experience bonus from a Ruby unless you’re able to make up the Life loss somewhere else.

Mempo of Twilight
Minimum: 9% IAS, 170+ Str
Recommended: 9% IAS, 190+ Str, 11% Life
Optional: Vit, Physical Resistance

————————————||| Shoulders
Don't spend too much of your budget on these. Once you farm yourself some Demonic Essence, you’ll eventually want replace them with crafted Archon Spaulders of Vitality.

Rare Shoulders
Minimum: 150+ Str, 100+ Vit, 65+ AR
Recommended: 150+ Str, 150+ Vit, 65+ AR
Optional: Life %, Armor, Physical Resistance, Elemental Resistance

Vile Ward
Minimum: 170+ Str, 70+ Vit
Recommended: 200+ Str, 70+ Vit
Optional: Life %, Physical Resistance, Elemental Resistance

————————————||| Amulet
Don't spend too much of your budget on these. Once you farm yourself some Demonic Essence, you’ll eventually want replace them with crafted Amulet of Strength.

Vit and major defensive stats should be viewed as “bonus” on amulet and rings. They should not be at the top of your shopping list (i.e. filter) as these stats will inflate the price of future upgrades substantially.

Rare Amulet
Minimum: 8+ chc, 50+ chd, 100+ Str
Optional: Average Damage
Bonus: Vit, Life %, Armor, AR, Physical Resistance, Elemental Resistance, Socket

————————————||| Chest
It is tempting to go for Immortal King’s Eternal Reign, but the cheap ones will seriously gimp your Vit. It is usually not worth switching over until you are ready to move up to the next tier or you have sufficient Vit on other slots.

Blackthorne's Surcoat
Minimum: 170+ Vit
Recommended: 50+ Str, 200+ Vit
Optional: Armor, Physical Resistance
Note: The 2-piece Blackthorne set bonus will give you an additional 100 Vit.

————————————||| Pants
Blackthorne's Jousting Mail
Minimum: 95+ Str, 95+ Vit
Recommended (A): 150+ Str, 150+ Vit
Recommended (B): 95+ Str, 95+ Vit, 60+ AR
Optional: Armor, AR, Physical Resistance, Elemental Resistance, Sockets
Note: The 2-piece Blackthorne set bonus will give you an additional 100 Vit.

————————————||| Gloves
Don't spend too much of your budget on these. Once you farm yourself some Demonic Essence, you’ll eventually want replace them with crafted Archon Gauntlets of Strength.

——————|| 2 IAS Pieces
Optional: Vit, Armor, AR, Physical Resistance, Elemental Resistance

Rare Gloves
Minimum: 8+ chc, 25+ chd, 70+ Str

Immortal King’s Irons
Minimum: 9+ chc, 20+ chd, 90+ Str
Recommended: 9+ chc, 20+ chd, 170+ Str

——————|| 4 IAS Pieces
Optional: Vit, Armor, AR, Physical Resistance, Elemental Resistance

Rare Gloves
Minimum: 8+ chc, 8%+ IAS, 70+ Str

Immortal King’s Irons
Minimum: 9+ chc, 8%+ IAS, 90+ Str

————————————||| Bracers
When you’re ready to move up to higher MP levels, you will need to have at least 500 AR (six pieces of gear with AR). Lacuni Prowlers can be used as your sixth piece if you do not to have any AR on your ring(s), amulet, gloves or pants.

Lacuni Prowlers
Minimum: 3.5+ chc, 9% IAS
Recommended: 4.5+ chc, 9% IAS
Optional: Str, Vit, Armor, AR, Physical Resistance, Elemental Resistance

————————————||| Belt
Immortal King's Tribal Binding
Minimum: 170+ Str, 50+ Vit
Recommended: 190+ Str, 50+ Vit

————————————||| Boots
Immortal King's Stride
Note: A basic Immortal King’s Stride will do. Get more Str or Vit if you need to cover up some of the weaker areas in your gear.

————————————||| Ring 1
——————|| 2 IAS Pieces
Rare Ring
Minimum: 4+ chc, 30+ chd, Str
Optional: Average Damage
Bonus: Vit, Life %, Armor, AR, Physical Resistance, Elemental Resistance, Socket

——————|| 4 IAS Pieces
Rare Ring
Minimum: 4+ chc, 8%+ IAS, Str
Optional: Average Damage
Bonus: Vit, Life %, Armor, AR, Physical Resistance, Elemental Resistance, Socket

————————————||| Ring 2
Stone of Jordan
Minimum: Cold Damage, 20%+ BvE
Recommended: 25%+ BvE
Note: The Cold Damage will slow any monster caught in your Sprint tornadoes. The longer they stay within range of the tornadoes, the more damage they take. It is also an effective counter to the Echoing Fury’s Fear effect if you use it on your mainhand.

Try to look for SoJ meant for other classes. Barbarian Cold SoJ are some of the most expensive while Wizard and Witch Doctor Cold SoJ are usually the cheapest.

To narrow down the AH list, set your search filter to look for “All Armor Types”. Filter for “Bonus vs Elites” and either “Max Mana” or “Max Arcane Power.” You’ll have to look through the rings one by one as there is no filter for Cold Damage.

If you have a choice between a 29% BvE + 6% Cold Damage SoJ and 30% BvE + 5% Cold Damage SoJ, pick the former. You’ll get slightly more DPS from it.

Rare Ring
Minimum: 4+ chc, 30+ chd, Str
Optional: Average Damage
Bonus: Vit, Life %, Armor, AR, Physical Resistance, Elemental Resistance, Socket
Note: While this increases damage to normal monsters, it will not come close to the SoJ when it comes to dishing out damage to Elites. Just adding it here in case you want to maximize DPS output (i.e. swapping to the rare ring after you get 5 NV stacks). Not recommended if you use the Echoing Fury on your mainhand.

————————————||| Weapon (Mainhand)
——————|| 2 IAS Pieces
Echoing Fury
Minimum: 1,000+ DPS (700+ Average Damage), 150+ Str, Socket, +0.24 APS, Low Fear (10 - 13%)
Recommended: 1,050+ DPS (750+ Average Damage), 150+ Str, Socket, +0.24 APS, Low Fear (10 - 13%)

——————|| 4 IAS Pieces
You can drop the LS if you manage to get it on your offhand.

Rare Mace
Minimum: 900+ DPS (750+ Average Damage), 50+ chd, Socket
Optional: Str, 2.5%+ LS

Sun Keeper
Minimum: 900+ DPS (750+ Average Damage), 170+ Str, Socket
Optional: 50+ chd, 2.5%+ LS

The Butcher’s Sickle
Minimum: 900+ DPS (700+ Average Damage), Socket
Optional: Str

————————————||| Weapon (Offhand)
——————|| 2 IAS Pieces
Rare Sword (WW Stat Stick)
Minimum: 100+ Str, 50+ chd, 2.5%+ LS, Socket

——————|| 4 IAS Pieces
You can drop the LS if you manage to get it on your mainhand.

Echoing Fury (HotA)
Minimum: 1,000+ DPS (700+ Average Damage), 150+ Str, Socket, +0.24 APS, Low Fear (10 - 13%)
Recommended: 1,050+ DPS (750+ Average Damage), 150+ Str, Socket, +0.24 APS, Low Fear (10 - 13%)

Echoing Fury (WW Stat Stick)
Minimum: 150+ Str, Socket, +0.24 APS, Low Fear (10 - 13%)
Optional (either one): 50+ chd, 2.5%+ LS
Low Budget Skorn Shopping List [2HSB.SL]

Recommended Budget: 2.5m - 10m

Before you start shopping, I highly recommend you look through the various Skorns available on the AH to see which one fits into your budget. After that, you will need to decide on the breakpoint. Higher breakpoint is more expensive but Fury is easier to manage.

1.43 APS ——— 2 IAS Pieces (18% IAS) ——— Normal, Double Str or LS Skorn
1.67 APS ——— 3 IAS Pieces (27% IAS) ——— 11% IAS Skorn
1.67 APS ——— 4 IAS Pieces (34% IAS) ——— 6% IAS Skorn

Sample Set:

Vile Ward
Minimum: 170+ Str, 70+ Vit
Recommended: 200+ Str, 70+ Vit
Optional: Life %, Physical Resistance, Elemental Resistance

————————————||| Amulet
Don't spend too much of your budget on these. Once you farm yourself some Demonic Essence, you’ll eventually want replace them with crafted Amulet of Strength.

Vit and major defensive stats should be viewed as “bonus” on amulet and rings. They should not be at the top of your shopping list (i.e. filter) as these stats will inflate the price of future upgrades substantially.

Depending on the DPS of your Skorn, you may gain more damage by getting high Str on your rings and amulet instead of Average Damage. Take some time to compare the different stat combination before you make your purchase.

Rare Amulet
Minimum: 8+ chc, 50+ chd, 100+ Str
Optional: Average Damage
Bonus: Vit, Life %, Armor, AR, Physical Resistance, Elemental Resistance, Socket

————————————||| Chest

Don't spend too much of your budget on these. Once you farm yourself some Demonic Essence, you’ll eventually want replace them with crafted Archon Gauntlets of Strength.

——————|| 2 IAS Pieces / 3 IAS Pieces
Optional: Vit, Armor, AR, Physical Resistance, Elemental Resistance

Rare Gloves
Minimum: 8+ chc, 25+ chd, 70+ Str

Immortal King’s Irons
Minimum: 9+ chc, 20+ chd, 90+ Str
Recommended: 9+ chc, 20+ chd, 170+ Str

————————————||| Belt
Immortal King's Tribal Binding

Recommended: 190+ Str, 50+ Vit

————————————||| Boots

————————————||| Ring 2
Stone of Jordan
Minimum: Cold Damage, 20%+ BvE
Recommended: 25%+ BvE
Note: The Cold Damage will slow any monster caught in your Sprint tornadoes. The longer they stay within range of the tornadoes, the more damage they take. The Cold Damage is not mandatory for a Skorn user, but is still nice to have. If you decide to skimp, you can get a SoJ with a different Element, but I would recommend avoiding the Holy (bright flashes are reported to be very distracting) and Poison (everything looks like a Fallen Maniac) version.

Try to look for SoJ meant for other classes. Barbarian Cold SoJ are some of the most expensive while Wizard and Witch Doctor Cold SoJ are usually the cheapest.

To narrow down the AH list, set your search filter to look for “All Armor Types”. Filter for “Bonus vs Elites” and either “Max Mana” or “Max Arcane Power.” You’ll have to look through the rings one by one as there is no filter for Cold Damage.

If you have a choice between a 29% BvE + 6% Cold Damage SoJ and 30% BvE + 5% Cold Damage SoJ, pick the former. You’ll get slightly more DPS from it.

————————————||| Weapon
Get as much DPS as you can afford. Depending on MP level, you may need to use the Bloodthirst passive along with Immortal King’s Tribal Bindings. Elites with Reflect Damage may present to be a challenge if you choose to run with only LS from your belt.

Low Budget Uber Shopping List [UBSB.SL]

Recommended Budget: 10m+

The tests were done by experienced Barbarian(s) with very high Paragon level. Your mileage may vary. If your Paragon is low, a much bigger budget would be needed to beef up your Str and Vit.

Budget Shopping List [BB.SL]

Recommended Budget: 30m - 200m

If your budget is on the higher end of the spectrum, you can consider slotting in a few higher-end pieces into your set. While this method won't give you the most bang for you buck in the very short-term, you don't have to replace them when you fully transition to mid-tier. This works best if you foresee yourself "moving up" within the next few weeks.

For casual players, this may be a double-edge sword as the market is somewhat unpredictable. The price of said item may have gone down by the time you're ready to upgrade. It could also shoot up if there's a massive gold influx (e.g. gold dupe) or shortage (e.g. botters getting banned, a lot of returning players).

Mid-Tier Uber Shopping List [UBMT.SL]

The following sets are based on the gear used during the "Team Guppy vs Team Shark" Challenge @ http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9362896730 and the "Five Kingdoms" Challenge @ http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9485778744?page=14#266

About The "Team Guppy vs Team Shark" Challenge Sets:
Built for under 1b budget, both sets are capable of dishing out over 2m HotA DPS on a Paragon level 100 Barbarian (approximately 1.8m HotA DPS on a Paragon 30). Extra emphasis were placed on Physical and Arcane Resistance to maximize tanking ability. While they are not particularly suited for general farming due to the low Movement Speed, they excel in taking down Ubers (under 8 minutes for all 3 pairs).

2.02 APS ——— 2 IAS Pieces (17% IAS) ——— Dual Wield (Non-EF)

@Bugs
Since when you turn into a Nyan clone? :P
Eclipse, nice guide.

Mind if I put in my two cents?

at the top where u have the "table of contents" it would be easier for people who want to get to a specific section if u linked each individual post underneath, so they dont have to scroll through walls of text.
@Nived
I'm still adjusting the posts. Will add the links once I'm done. :)
Eclipse, awesome guide m8.

edit: lol edit for typo
Awesome Guide by an Awesome Nephalem!

Prices of the "low budget list" and low end gear keep going up... Stuff like lowest 170 Mempos and basic IK helms have gone up at least 1.5x on bids if not higher. Buyouts for sure have nearly doubled. I don't really know the other item tiers, but I'd imagine budgets and mid tiers have risen quite substantially.

Ramble... Ramble... Ramble...

GL HF!
Nice job, Eclipse!

Was going to criticize Skorn gear, but read more carefuly and noticed its for pure ww/rend build, not hota.
