Oct 14, 2012 Need Help. Should I stay SnB? I think i want to transition into Dual Wield but its hard loosing a huge chunk of my EHP (all res/HP/block) from the shield plus i like that shields have high crit. Should i just keep trucking with SnB? Im at 91k dps so im doing ok but its getting harder and harder to up my DPS without costing too much EHP. I'd love a honest gear critique if anyone can take the time. I know my helm is ghetto and im waiting on 1.05 on jewlery Looking for suggestions.... Stay the course? Drop the shield and get more EHP on other gear?vict3r13 Oct 14, 2012

Oct 14, 2012 Xbox 360 Diablo 3 A Reality! $$$ Pre-Release "We were wanting to release D3 on consoles, but could not figure out a good control scheme." Today, I challenged that idea.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWGp8wUPPaY&list=UUTjrsQgjZmBzYzWaAh0zI3Q&index=1&feature=plcp The technical specifics are too lengthy to speak of. The "real" problem they faced was D3 is a point and click, and controllers are not. Well actually, they can be, and they can be enjoyable. I will no longer be using a mouse and keyboard. Also, if anyone from Blizzard sees this, make it happen, or hire me, and I'll show you how to make it happen....$millions just waiting to be made.Desolater1 Oct 14, 2012
Oct 14, 2012 New to barb land Hey so short and sweet, i just got back into the game, and i made a barb, im doing pretty good, barely ever die. But if someone could screen shot there gear so i know what to aim for, ex. how much health i need compared to dps, and whats better 1h-shield, 2 1h, or a 2h combo? if you could reply or screen shot some gear, that would be great, thanks!pickle170 Oct 14, 2012
Oct 14, 2012 How to use a Sever properly? Hi guys, I just picked up a sever which is great. I'm guessing it's because of the stat "slain enemies rest in pieces" that gives me like between 1.5 - 9 million crit damage on the last hit on enemies. I'm also guessing the right way to use that stat would be to use cleave with rupture. I've noticed that the insane crit damage on the last hit sometimes procs in 1 hit, meaning its a 1 hit kill, or sometimes it procs very late in killing the enemy making it pretty useless unless splash damage is involved. What decides when the final hit on an enemy is going to be? is it totally random? And this insane crit damage... how is it calculated?? This is a picture of the Sever I picked up, the gem in it and a few pictures of the 5mil crit damage its dealin: http://imgur.com/WtlAqgoodbyedonut10 Oct 14, 2012

Oct 14, 2012 Any ww barbs our there use into 2piece nats? is a well barb rolled reflection with 100 str and 4+cc(and other stats), and a 100 str boots worth looking into??? basically 11+% crit from the nats to replace 5piece ik. might have to sac some vit with this but a 2fecta nats with str should be available for 1xx million and a high str boots should be under 50mil cuz no dh wants that sh!t. 55% cc before battlerage/wotb... i haven't ran the numbers but i'm just curious to see if this is a plausable option or if others have tried already.. thanks :)Bangarang1 Oct 14, 2012

Oct 14, 2012 sever + frenzy testing... did some runs in my spec and in ww spec with my current setup (EF + sever and then just with my 1400 dps skorn w/ a ton of str and 300% crit) and i've gotta say in this spec, and in ww spec, this little 800 dps sever w/ a socket in my offhand paid the bills. how dual wielding this setup with mp7/10 will go i'm not quite sure as i haven't played ptr, but i usually was running EF/crit stormshield prior to picking up the sever to test it out. frenzy is by far the best to use with sever, as you want more swings w/ high cc/cd to get the proc going. sever might be garbage past a certain MP level but for the way things are now i can't see using another OH. the lifesteal is ridiculous, although i'm a bit disappointed that the last rune in battle rage doesn't throw 20% bombs around on sever procs :Plameboi1 Oct 14, 2012
Oct 14, 2012 WW barb vs ranged+running enemies. So, I have by far my biggest challenge against unique packs of ranged attacking/running enemies. This is particularly annoying because the main farming areas in act 3 are filled with them (succubi, goat spear dudes, fat fire throwing dudes). The problem is that it's really hard to get them to actually stand in my tornadoes.. it takes time to catch them, and I lose some fury, then I put a tornado on them, and they walk out of it. Plus they don't bunch up like melee enemies, so I can pretty much only go after one of them at a time. Anyone have any tips for these guys? My dps is low, but I only spent about a million or so gold on my gear, so whatever.brian5 Oct 14, 2012

Oct 14, 2012 Where to go (other than WW) I'm looking to up my dps and farm speed without losing too much survivability. I struggled with act 2 until I went with a life regen tank and then I was able to clear through Diablo without much trouble. However DPS still hovers just under 25k and A3 farming is slow as hell. What is the answer (that doesnt cost 100 million gold?)? Do I need a weapon with crit damage and a socket, or even a 2 hander with crit and socket?JackStraw6 Oct 14, 2012

Oct 14, 2012 5 piece IK I know my jewelry is !@#$.......Anyboody see a downside to using 5 pieces of the IK set on a ww barb? I've got a little over 300 million for upgrades. Looks like I could potentially pick up the gloves, belt, and boots for about the same price as the Ice Climbers I've been looking for. Ice Climbers aren't going to help much with my overall DPS compared to what I currently have. Then again I'm not really getting much from the remaining 3 pieces of the IK set other than the LS and the set bonus.................I'm starting to hate this game.DrFish12 Oct 14, 2012
Oct 14, 2012 Looking for some help Look at my barb setup. I'm in need of Crit Damage. I'm seeing, only thing i can trade up on is my weapon. questions i'm pondering. how much LoH can i give up to get more CD? I have around 1500 LoH How much weapon Damage can i give up to get more CD? should i consider giving up the 10% CC (weapons master) and move over to a faster weapon? currently i have 58% CC. what other options do you see that i may be over looking. thanksOctagon0 Oct 14, 2012

I know it sucks but blizz likes to do a little more than skim off RMAH so that means this: Gold s/b - 110m Gold BIN - 155m Made a new thread since old one was filled with clutter.

Oct 14, 2012 1.05 is coming on Oct 16? this is from the blue post : We will be performing scheduled maintenance on Tuesday, October 16th. Maintenance will begin at 3:00 AM PDT and is expected to last for 8 hours. During this time, all servers and many web services will be unavailable. Thank you for your patience. This got to be 1.05 right? Usually 8 hour maintenance means new patch. I could be wrong.CaptAmerica2 Oct 14, 2012
Oct 14, 2012 Fellow barbs, let's create a team Hey barbs, I've been pretty bored lately soloing (I'm sure we all are) and I was inspired by that "ASIA team" thread. Looking to find some friendly players out there to speed paragon level or farm with! I also want to get to know more active players and create a team (kind of like a guild). My hope is that we can get to know each other better, offer each other advice, help each other out once patch 1.05 comes out (and also play MP). I want to find those who can do act 3 clears at a very fast pace. Ideally looking at WW barbs with over 80k dps, high res, 12 ms, 40k hp. Usually the ones who end up carrying the group in a public game ;) --- UPDATE 10/10/12 As of now, I've compiled a list of some friendly barbs (all are pretty decently geared) who would like to get farming/leveling team(s) going. You guys are more than welcome to add each other on the list, get together, and play. Awesome community, I look forward to playing with you all Brendon619#1402 Professor#1152 Jet006#1582 Dragonhead#6134 GMKGoat#1143 Seras#1553 Aldozer#2430 Ryeong#1154 Jim#1333 Garthandal#1897 Veepow#1555 CoralKiller#1659 Jashagan#1685 Added 10/11/12 Chris#6346 XxRuthlessxX#1218 Ryujin#6706 MWpro#1822 styleonyou#1803 KillerElite#1853 (for 1.05) ps.
