Introduction


This barb is pretty easy to level/gear up and probably one of the best farm chars to get going. There might be ways to do the harder ubers as well with certain skills/gear & mo's, but the fact that minions themselves are hard to coordinate and you are not the toughest guy alone can make some ubers (especially starting at 125) quite hard. There are other chars which are much better suited for that job.

pros:
-good starter char and strong farmer
-fast/easy to level and play through the acts
-rather cheap to gear up

cons:
-not really a good uber boss killer (I can currently do around 60% of them)
-play style can be a bit boring for some people

How much minion resistance do you need in Hell? I didn't see it listed.

Edit: I guess it's capped at 75? I put a few too many resist jewels then. My d2stats says 84% minion resist. I had a really rough time with Horazon, the fire just melts all summons instantly. They have 300% life and 430% damage according to d2stats. I hope it will be better as I go on.

Some aoe spells from bosses can do alot of dmg and kill minions quite fast, im not sure if you can do much against that. I have about same %minion life in d2stats and it seems to be well enough for farming the end game areas. You are probably lacking base str/levels, which boost it by quite alot.

I honestly wasn't sure about the minion res. I did some search for it but best I could find is info from old median xl threads. Tried some Teganze testing and 75% seems to be correct. Not sure if you want to overstack minion resists. Again its kinda hard to find info on this but some mobs/bosses do have spells/abilities that lower or pierce resistances.(mythal), uber quest -the binding of baal-"Beware the Horadrim's fire and lightning spells, empowered with ancient metamagic to bypass up to 30% of your resistances, Tal Rasha able to bypass 40%."

I will make a breakpoint section (kind of missing anyways) and list the 75% there for now since our focus is on farming and i remember doing most of the bosses with around 75%.

edit: not sure if your 300% minion life is with shamanic trance active
