    Re: New Hardcore Barb

    Ghom is down on Normal. I killed him at level 31 with Frenzy (Sidearm), Furious Charge (Battering Ram), Threatening Shout (Intimidate), Revenge (Best Served Cold), Wrath of the Berserker, and War Cry. Nerves of Steel, Superstition, and Tough as Nails were the passives. My Enchantress, level 30, has Forceful Push, Powered Armor, Erosion, and Focused Mind, along with a 33.7 DPS yellow Bone Staff with 22 Dexterity, 67 Intelligence, 2% IAS, and 10 bonus XP per kill; a blue Mirror with 10 LOH and 8 bonus XP per kill; a 19 Vitality blue Ring; a 21 Vitality blue Ring; and a 36 Intelligence blue Amulet. I'm using entirely self-found gear; a blue Arming Cap with 59 Armor, 24 Vitality, and a socketed Flawless Amethyst; a blue Amice with 62 Armor, 28 Vitality, and 11 bonus XP per kill; a blue Amulet with 38 Vitality; a yellow Splint Cuirass with 77 Armor, 49 Vitality, 35 Strength, 15 Dexterity, 4% ranged reduction, 7 life regeneration, 153 bonus life from globes and potions, and a socketed Flawless Amethyst; a blue Braid with 58 Armor, 30 Vitality, and 1.4% life steal; blue Gauntlets with 57 Armor, 13 Dexterity, 24 Vitality, and 47 Intelligence; blue Bracelets with 46 Armor, 33 Vitality, and 153 bonus life from globes and potions; a blue Ring with 30 Vitality and 86 bonus life from globes and potions; a blue Ring with 37 Strength, 34 Dexterity, and 21 Vitality; blue Chain Leggings with 56 Armor, 40 Vitality, and a socketed Flawless Amethyst; yellow Chain Boots with 51 Armor, 19 Strength, 2 life regeneration, 1 thorns damage, 58 bonus life from globes and potions, 3 yards of bonus pickup radius, and 23 Vitality; a blue Tower Shield with 15% block chance, 110-148 block amount, 253 Armor, 70 Strength, and 65 Intelligence; and a yellow Falchion with 11-24 Damage, 1.40 aps, 2-4 poison damage, 37 Strength, 39 Vitality, 1.5% life steal, and a socketed Flawless Ruby. Meanwhile, my stats are as follows, from the detailed DPS/EHP calculator at d3rawr.com (versus level 28 enemies):

    DPS: 210.32
    EHP: 28065
    Life: 5400

    Ghom was an easy kill, with me easily over 50% Health the entire time without having to pop a potion. I essentially tanked everything, including the gas clouds, and never had any problems.

    Nothing changed during the Core of Arreat, but Azmodan was only a moderately easy kill. My health remained above 50% while tanking everything, but only just. I still didn't need to pop any potions.

    Izual is down on Normal. I killed him at level 35 with Frenzy (Sidearm), Furious Charge (Merciless Assault), Threatening Shout (Intimidate), Revenge (Best Served Cold), Wrath of the Berserker, and War Cry (Hardened Wrath). Nerves of Steel, Superstition, and Tough as Nails were the passives.

    DPS: 283.51
    EHP: 39373
    Life: 6502.72

    Izual was actually a very easy kill, so long as I was careful to avoid being frozen by popping Wrath of the Berserker or charging out of range. I stayed near max health the whole time without using any potions.

    Re: New Hardcore Barb

    Diablo is finally down on Normal, ending that difficulty. I killed him at level 35 with Frenzy (Sidearm), Furious Charge (Merciless Assault), Threatening Shout (Intimidate), Revenge (Best Served Cold), Wrath of the Berserker, and War Cry (Hardened Wrath). Nerves of Steel, Superstition, and Tough as Nails were the passives. My Enchantress, level 35, has Forceful Push, Powered Armor, Erosion, and Focused Mind, along with a blue Maul with 32.4 DPS, 73 Strength, and 100 Intelligence; a blue Eye with 40 Intelligence and 35 Vitality; a blue Ring with 37 Strength, 34 Dexterity, and 21 Vitality; a blue Ring with 21 Vitality; and a blue Amulet with 36 Intelligence.

    Diablo was a fairly easy kill, so long as I was careful to avoid the lightning attacks, the cages, and to escape the fire rings. I stayed above 50% health the entire time with no need for potions. Onward to Nightmare!

    The Skeleton King is down on Nightmare. I killed him at level 38 with Frenzy (Sidearm), Furious Charge (Merciless Assault), Threatening Shout (Intimidate), Revenge (Retribution), Wrath of the Berserker (Arreat's Wail), and War Cry (Hardened Wrath). Nerves of Steel, Superstition, and Tough as Nails were the passives. My Enchantress, level 37, has Forceful Push, Powered Armor, Erosion, and Focused Mind, along with a blue Battle Staff with 38-55 damage, 1.00 aps, 82 Strength, and 39 Intelligence; a blue Eye with 40 Intelligence and 35 Vitality; a blue Ring with 80 Strength and 16 Vitality; a blue Ring with 40 Vitality; and a blue Amulet with 36 Intelligence. I'm using entirely self-found gear; a yellow Plated Helm with 95 Armor, 46 Strength, 27 Dexterity, 23 Intelligence, 82 Vitality, 9% extra gold, and a socketed Perfect Amethyst; blue Spaulders with 77 Armor, 38 Vitality, and 227 bonus life from globes and potions; a blue Amulet with 38 Vitality; a blue Stygian Harness with 108 Armor, 68 Vitality, and a socketed Perfect Amethyst; a yellow Grand Belt with 78 Armor, 60 Strength, 39 Vitality, 1.3% life steal, 2 thorns damage, and 102 bonus life from globes and potions; blue Plated Gauntlets with 83 Armor, 43 Strength, 71 Intelligence, and 24 Vitality; blue Bracelets with 44 Armor, 39 Vitality, and 2% ranged reduction; a blue Ring with 38 Vitality and a socketed Perfect Amethyst; a yellow Ring with 43 Dexterity, 40 Vitality, 13 fire resistance, 11 thorns damage, 10 bonus experience per kill, and a socketed Perfect Amethyst; yellow Plate Leggings with 95 Armor, 12 Dexterity, 42 Intelligence, 21 Vitality, 6% magic find, 13 bonus life from globes and potions, and 2 socketed Flawless Amethysts; blue Silk Shoes with 100 Armor, 88 Intelligence, and 41 Vitality; a blue Tower Shield with 15% block chance, 110-148 block amount, 235 Armor, 45 Vitality, and a socketed Flawless Amethyst; and a yellow War Sword with 18-39 Damage, 1.40 aps, 6-11 lightning damage, 53 Strength, 35 Vitality, 44 life per kill, and a socketed Perfect Ruby. Meanwhile, my stats are as follows, from the detailed DPS/EHP calculator at d3rawr.com (versus level 34 enemies):

    DPS: 321.06

    The Skeleton King was an extremely easy kill. I tanked everything, and although he took a while to drop, I stayed near maximum health the entire time with no need for potion use.
