Inferno difficulty is -perfectly- tuned

Barbarian
In all honesty, well done Blizzard.

From a Barbarian's perspective, inferno was absolutely perfect in terms of difficulty (especially act 2).
Act 1 was extremely manageable. Act 2 was a big gear/play style check; it was difficult enough that at times, it seemed impossible. However, with the right gear, act 2 will eventually become as easy as act 1. Act 2 was also a big wake up call that made you re-examine your gear/skill choices.

Act 3 was a much smaller gear check than 2, and Act 4 is just a loot pinata as Act 3 and 4 are almost identical in difficulty.
can you share your build please ?

thanks

the problem is that you apparently believed that this would or could be true on release

"Any build is viable" philosophy does not mesh with difficult content. If you could walk in and kill everything with any random build, then the content is not difficult. Inferno is designed to be extremely difficult; thusly, only a select handful of builds will be viable when our gear is crap level.
Why Demoralize?

Should be Falter
How do you kill elites and champs with this build?
As a bad geared barb (mediocre player) myself, getting instagibbed in Act II...
Im still a lil' dissapointed. I thought it would take weeks (maybe even months) to get into inferno. As in almost every (M)MORPG based game, barbs are quite annoying to lvl 'cuz of their gear dependencies so it's what i expected. But when i came into inferno.. i could handle Act I quite well.
Im very pleased that Act II is this hard. Yes im cursing so much everytime i die 10+ times in a row they think a madman lives here... but that was what i expected from the ultimate challenge known as inferno!!!
the OP's build looks like a group build, if that's true his opinion is somewhat invalid. I have no idea how he could get by without wotb.

if the answer is insane gear, then be aware that applies to pretty much no one at this point in the game and is further invalidation.

very slowly
Can i say, the OP is the 1 of the m-ost REtarded person for this reason tht inferno is blance.......HA! If those wiz+DH didnt make it to act 4 and sell u those gears, u will be hitting a brick wall.
Completely solo build. 16k dps.

WotB is complete !@# imo. You get more damage out of taking berserker rage. The only thing WotB helps with is zerging down nightmarish/frozen packs.

I can clear act 4 inferno faster/with fewer deaths than similar geared wizards/DHs. They die to corrupted angels, barbs don't.
yeah that's the only possible use for it, on those packs only...

is this real? how many people fed you the gear necessary to forgo wotb?
Nobody fed me gear because while my DH/wiz friends are still doing Siegebreaker runs, I'm doing 5 stack diablo kills.

I still can't believe how retarded people are that they think WotB is actually a good skill. It does nothing 87.5% of the time; it's substantially less DPS than zerker rage. Any challenging mob pack will take you a lot longer than 15s to kill, which requires a build/playstyle that lets you sustain rather than graveyard zerg/wait.
so you farmed all your gear and bought absolutely no gear that was exploited for or farmed by ranged classes. you're right, inferno is perfect!

no screenshots and non-detailed statements, perfectly credible as well!
So buying gear off the AH makes inferno imbalanced. I see...
