Revenge + Overpower Builds.

Barbarian
Simple concept of relying on life regen from Revenge(provocation) + Overpower(revel) for sustain.

Overpower(revel) - healing 8% of your max hp for every enemy hit in a 9yard radius, up every 15seconds where crits may reduce the cooldown by 1 second.

Revenge(provocation) - 30% chance on being hit to heal 5% of your max hp for every enemy hit

Here is the build I thought if using:

thats a lot of AOE, have you over looked single target dps? also it seems as if you're mixing your passive abilities of PvP with a PvE oriented build.
I agree with the op. Too much aoe might leave you lacking in harder difficulties. But in normal mode im sure you'll have a ball.
I might suggest adding War Cry (Invigorate) for some passive life regen, or if you get chain stunned or feared you could get wrecked in higher difficulties.
Both are sword and shield builds

Your build is fine, just think you'll like the lifestyle benefits of a mobility skill over EQ. Also consider Frenzy/Rend or Frenzy/Whirlwind instead of HoTA/Cleave to weigh towards single target as you are overdoing on the AoE.


In my opinion you are going to have a difficult time in Inferno with the build you listed. You don't have any CC or escape moves. Even though you can heal a lot that doesn't matter if 10 mobs hit you at once dropping you instantly.

I changed a few things. I gave you bash/clobber to give you a single target dps ability.
Seismic slam to knock back enemies if you're overwhlemed.
Leap to help you get in and out of combat. I chose iron impact vs death from above because revenge can't proc unless you're being attacked, and mob can't attack you if they're stunned.
War Cry and the rune for armor boost, since once again, you need to be hit in order for revenge to proc. Might as well minimize the damage you take.

if you want, you could change out seismic slam for rend with the life leech rune.

I changed boon of bul kathos for superstition. All of your skills are melee ranged, and you're dealing with of melee mob and there are ranged casters in the back, you'll take less damage from them while you're dealing with the melee mob up close.
