Is it the best/fastest barb build that easily beats everything? No. It is good and tanky build that will get you far on budget? Yes.
Is it still viable starter after 1.1.0 nerfs? Yes. Build was updated, to compensate for some of the nerfs. 1.2/1.3 patch = no changes.

Tools: D2STATS- shows all important stats, adds item filter, greatly improves gameplay

HOW TO PLAY:
Deathgaze: bosses/small-medium packs. Shower of Rocks: dense packs/debuff (tag bosses). Thunderslam: aoe stun. Spirit Guide + Runemaster = defense. Wolf companion: damage boost (to all but iceburst). Wolf stance: speeds/damage - main stance. Windform + shield + bear stance = skipping content/movement. Rules: cap resists (MO/runes), all sockets = runes, keep AR high (dex/%AR), always use tslam. Heal with potions, be careful when to run (defense = 0). Keep defense as high as possible. Watch %physical resistance, stack as much as you can, lucky armor upgrades, max rolls on items, cap is 50%.

the list of challenges + ubers above is very welcomed as it is compressed to what actualy matters , with no unnecessary details , without having to go trough a few pages of changelog to see when and what must be done .

i believe it may serve as a progression /order of doing things for most (if not all ) new builds .

thanks !

All req there show minimum level (except LC1). So yes. Basically means you need to be at least level 80 to enter that k3ba portal to get cc.
Challenges are designed way so you can't really skip/miss anything or overlevel. All can be done without even looking at docs.
