Act 2 Help Please

Barbarian
I am nearly done with act 2 on inferno mode but I didnt do it "legit". I can tank and handle everything perfectly fine thats not an elite, but when an elite group or champ shows up thats not easy (Avenger, Heath Link, Waller or something else easy), i end up having to run right past it. I never get any MF/GF buffs because of this and idk why i cant handle 90% of them. I have 700 resists with war cry and my armor is 8100. My HP is 49.5k and my DPS is around 5k (cant afford gear with AR + Str/IAS/Crit + Vit). I am also wondering if String of Ears is worth it. Does that melee % damage reduction help THAT much to cost so much? Forgot to mention i also have 1130 LOH
Your damage is too low. My barb currently is 750+ all resists, 17k damage, 10.3karmor when im solo.

This was done without TOO much effort, just farming Act 1 for gold etc.

Your damage is absolutely your weak spot.
Find a way to get another 1-2k armor and 2-300 resists. Use the enchantress with the 15% armor, that's what I do.
Get more damage. Decently difficult affixes on champion packs will always test your ability to survive unless you completely outclass them.

You should drop down to A1 and farm gold. Not every pieces of gear needs every stat. Why are you looking for Str/AS/AR/Vit rings? If you had the cheese to drop millions on single jewelry slots you wouldn't be stuck in A2. That's like a high school janitor trying to lease a Ferrari.

Look for strength / AS rings with either Vit or a socket. Any other stats are bonus. Same with an amulet. Use the rest of your gear to get AR / Vit / Armor with good amounts of Strength where you can.

Put it this way: Your goal right now shouldn't be purchasing gear that is extremely strong for even A3/A4 drops. Your goal right now is getting yourself right so you can 5 stack farm A2, which will provide you the platform to find/buy upgrades to move to A3. Rinse repeat.

How much did that cost to get resists and dps to even out? I was looking at things on AH and its just crazy expensive for something with 100vit/100str/50+AR.
