I would like to know how some of you guys get to 40-50k DPS playing barbs without sacrifing too much defensive stats. I currently have only 10k DPS using dual yield maces each one hitting for like 650 base bps. I realise that's on the low end, but I am thinking that if I get some good weapons (1200 base dps for instance) my damage would only be close to 20k right (I am thinking about a linear relationship between my base DPS and my final DPS, is that too wrong?). I currently have 1k LoH, +10% IaS, 700 all res, 1050 st, 1100 vit, +22% life, +7% crit chance, +25% crit dmg. What should I sacrifice in order to increase DPS without dropping too much on my survivability? Its very very expensive to get good gear that fits both on the defensive and the offensive sides (like a good Str, vit, @res, crit chance, crit dmg gloves or ring).
So, to sum up, how to you guys get to such high DPS levels without dropping the ball on resistances, vitality, LoH and stuff?
