Want to do mp8 solo. What's my next item?

Barbarian
Your question was .. if you only change ONE item what should it be. Change out the Skorn for a pair of 1 handers. Skorn with a WW build is like bringing a 3 legged horse to the Kentucky Derby. You'll probably finish, just dead last. You're handicapping yourself TOO MUCH.

You'll pick up main stats and vit, speed of nado ticks and probably some crit damage if both weapons have sockets. Faster nado ticks means more life coming in.
I promise you, it'll be a huge gain.
Ok, will try...loggin in now to put on my best 1hs...
USing my 2 best 1hs...i dont think the EF is to good, needs soc and LOH, and probably not the best offhand. Switched to rend to help survivability but the problem is now i dont kill elites as quickly. Maybe a stone of jordan would help or something. Thanks for the help
what is epeen?

you should be shooting for 28% ias drop the Bulkath, put the EF in youre OH. get a 1sock 900+dps 45+CD mace(3m on the ah). you 're gear needs a lot more help than im qualified to say.

e-pen1s, big dps = big e-peen
OK, spent some hefty gold for me on a MH/OH....i undertand i am not godly but it believe buffed i break to 100k paper sheet dps....im guessing most people are going to say omg he has no IAS. So in an effort to get better over time what are the best items to put IAS on?
also thinking of getting rid of back for HOTA in your build muffins. also what is the purpose of overawe...like pop that first then start running nados and WW? I like HOTA to take down elites faster. I know you guys wont hesitate to call me a effing moron if this is stupid....please do!
Your build looks good now, just some odd choices in gear, but it should work just fine in MP2-5.
Your Crit Damage % is very low and you are missing a tad of attack speed as well.

I'd swap out the Wailing host ring for a trifecta ring to start with.
got an almost trifecta ring now and switched to a better ammy i had and forgot about....
OK guys i have a little under 20 mil and want to upgrade....new EF with soc or what?
MH should get the highest possible dps since damage output counts on MH. Forget about leech there coz it would hugely stretches ur budget. OH doesn't contribute to nado damage but its tick frequency so get one which is fast (mighty weapon is slow). Since the dps value on OH doesnt count you can afford to stack up cd, ls, str, vit there without stretching ur budget all that much. Lastly, both must have socket. You can see my weapons for reference, not the best but probably on the right track.
