most op character possible?

oh boy, some ancient stuff right there! :) Honestly a lot depends on what you consider op. If we are talking "speedclear meta", I think the classic pouncesin with craft was faster (that was after this cotw video, back in that version you coudln't craft pounce naginata iirc). Just more effi...

Throw Barb 2017?

If I had to be little critical about balance here, it is stampede vs earthquake comparison. Both skills have similar cone shape aoe, so they are fairly comparable. Stampede 110% vs earthquake 60%, almost 2x more damage. Stempede can be used from dostance, shift+click, doesn't require target. Stemped...

kiki22vu wrote:2,2k dex for max block on barb? :shock:

how much does that block passive give to inc % block? 6-7? This seems a bit overkill to me getting max block on barb that easy


7%
best part is if you max it it also grants ~40% deadly strike :)

Throw vs Melee Barb

Earthquake can work if you have insane gear and just excessive damage. But earlier, it is just weak, you have cone shaped aoe, that hits 1x for 60%. That is same as ONE axe from overkill. Sure aoe arent same, eq is larger, but difference in damage and aoe clear speed is gigantic. When it comes to fo...

Throw vs Melee Barb

Block uberskill is very powerful, you can go for all stat mod on items, so you have high health, maxblock and some str. The problem with melee is, it is imo quite hard to get decent clear speeds, unless you are very overgeared, procs, all charms. Then one stormblast (or clones) and proc chains clear...

Faceroll Gameplay

Barb seems quite solid this patch.
For leveling some melee combo with fortress is good, iron spiral, sor, its preference.
For midgame or even before hitting 120, overkill seems to perform best for me (with wolf stance).
Lategame when you unlock more items, get 500 signets, a lot more options opens up.

barb
I want to experiment with new block passive.
Leveling to 120 and getting easy/mid charms, also ones that require skipping monsters (ww) are really easy on barb. Havent had chance to do heroics yet.

I think strongest untwinked barb for leveling will be around skill overkill.
