I tried to run my 'T6' barb with Bellifortis last week. Not super but with a few fortress proc items it's also pretty solid in ta. Sadly the proc is not that good. I feel TU6 glaive still is stronger.

Nice guide, cool build. I've always liked fortress.

For merc, have you tried Fighter Mage from act 2? While he was always the least effective of the mercs, he uses both Fortress and Guard Tower. Not sure if it would be anything much more than fps luls, but would be cool to see all those fortresses in action.

just to guarantee all kills are 10% fortress proc chance, not just your own. I hadn't found it necessary moreso than the shapeshifter's tank and damage and speed with wolf stance, and I think bloodlust too.

@LG, I forgot I had done formatting for those last bosses I completed but never wrote them. If I get a chance the next couple days, I'll do that writeup. As for the heroics (Xazax/Astrogha/Zorun Tzin), its just a matter of getting more fire pierce and physical damage (mainly the Emberstorm or Night's Embrace) and blasting away, if you keep in mind general boss mechanics (avoid Astro Frozen Orb, so hit and retreat, repeat --- lure Penitents at Xazax away to a corner opposite of Xazax to allow you to attack him easily --- Purify Totems and lure rats/zombies away then teleport across a gap to trap them behind you at Zorun Tzin)
