First Barbarian Impressions
« on: May 25, 2012, 14:08:53 pm »

How are you doing fellow Barbarians? Is playing barb what you have expected? What skill & item setup you are using on inferno ?
Im almost pure tank, stun/knockback skills mostly, 6xk hp, ~400 all res, now im working on def, need to find better gear for that :) I hope that on PvP dps or semi-dps build will be also playable, my ancient spear will take down all paper demon hunters :P

What about my dmg? Its not that important, barb is mainly for keeping mobs away from dps chars with stun, knockback, slow and his own body ;p atm i have around 65k hp, is it low? Sure it is, 100k would be a lot better, someday... ;) and if ure interested i have like 10k dps

My personal impression is that it's a struggle with barbarian to ravage as you wish in inferno... if you go full tank and leave the damage your survivability is still not optimal - but it may be my items aswell ;)
The differences in dmg output are not completely in balance I suppose..  10k dps vs what? 20,30 and even 40k dps...
Wonder how it will be in pvp

And youre playing mostly solo or co-op? In co-op im aiming in ~60 k hp and 800 all res too, we shall see how it will go with the rest.

What kind of skillbuild are you guys using to get through inferno?

I'm thinking of ground stomp, leap attack, revenge, overpower, frenzy and err wrath of the berserker
as passives: tough as nails, superstition and hm.. relentless or something?

Nerves of steel as third passive here :)
War Cry with Impunity  rune ( all res ) is very important imo. Im not using overpower, but i have Revenge with Provocation and Ignore Pain with Ignorance is a Bliss. Ground Stomp with Wretching smash and Wrath of Berserker too, with Striding Giant.

And i keep it this way almost all the time.

My main skill ( frenzy or cleave ) depends of gameplay. I use cleave with Gathering storm rune in a decent co-op and when im helping someone in hell. When im playing inferno solo or with crap team, i use frenzy, often with smite, but not only.
