This is a good thread to compare build,gear,etc. That being said this is the first Barb Ive actually had survive past inferno act2. My current farming route is Act 3 craters 1-2, depths level 1-2, fields of misery, Azmodan on MP0. I know my DPS is on the low end but something with Sever is still bugged, my damage numbers hit the millions range and when I kill things my life restores. And yes Im using Frenzy with the Smite roon, its like having a free stun skill and it works on bosses too....
You need a weapon with a socket and the highest emerald you can afford or at least a weapon with Crit Hit Damage, it will give a nice damage boost. The Andariel you are using has 25% extra fire damage taken, that's taken by you, you must have problem against fire damage elites?
Classic sword and board tank barb. Pretty much finished as there is nothing I can upgrade that doesn't involve bank breaking levels of expense per slot.
85k dps unbuffed before weapon master/ruthless. Fully buffed is 175k dps including enchantress and full frenzy.
I do change his build a bit. Mainly rend/revenge but sometimes I go to nado's WW or Hota either SnB or with a self found 1540dps/110% cd grandfather two hander.
Solo's mp5 well, mp6 & 7 is slower but still survivable and I usually party up on mp8 or 9 for ubers.
I've so far been lucky with a couple drops that sold for 40m, managed to buy the current setup on my barb. I can farm MP3 quite comfortably but would like to be faster, and I am stumped on where to make upgrades. My current gold is only 15m, so I'm wondering if it would be more beneficial to A. keep saving or B. try upgrade with current amount.
SC, everything is self found (I use the AH only for selling things), otherwise the game is not interesting (insofar as D3 can be interesting atm ...). The build is an "all-rounder", it can do everything, but with some time in certain cases. Surely not OP, but this character is funny and challenging to play. The only thing that remain is to wait for some better drops.
