be beneficial? Does it work the way I'm thinking, if you have 70 axes raining down, does each axe have a chance to proc time strike?


Yea, each axe can trigger striking procs. I like that jewel, but it seems more difficult to get a bunch of those than it used to be.

This gives 5% chance to block. Rebel makes up for the -res from the rings/grin, and gives huge str/dex bonus as well as wep damage.

Max Mountain King - Socket everything with Lah runes that you can. Anyone got thoughts if this will work. Still using Lion stance/overkill/runemaster

Why do you will try get max block if you're already using runemaster and getting only 5% ctbh? Also, you get magic damage with STR points (more damage) and EWP from STR points... I think that try getting max block if you're using runemaster is pointless...

My Option would if you go runemaster. Dont try to go maxblock im current lvl 140 and would need 3450 dex for mb with runemaster also i Think it would be much better to go then for 15k++ life with making Points into vit and test strengh then trying to get maxblock without gladiators. Anyway go gladi with maxblock and min 500k def then pretty immöortal with even 20-30% life eech as i tested ( good try would be khazra if u can afford and ancient both with sockets -10 req jeweils!

You don't get much benefit from it as far as I can see, but you could try it. The problem with jewels is you lose out a huge amount of defense.

That might work, the only two problems I see is that you have a pretty minimal amount of runes (so your defense suffers a lot) possible in gear, and to be able to equip ancient's legacy you'd have to shirk a lot of dex points. I'm not sure the extra block is worth it. Plus you also have to remember that block is worthless without hitting a good breakpoint, which I'm not sure you'd be able to do with that gear setup, but who knows?

Yeah I didn't want to say anything bad about ChuckNOrris but I've been around for a while and as far as I could remember, he should be the last guy to give criticism on a guide xD

Thanks! It's my first guide so I'm going to be improving it. I played every barb spec out there and I guess I wanted to put out something new that I don't see often.

The comments you made later suggest that your guide would be sufficiently different to be worth posting anyway (especially since you've written it)?


Yours sounds like it would be 'Throw Barb' in general as opposed to this being 'Overkill Barb' specifically.

Average defense from spirit guide, (500k with good gear, but hey, is not so glass cannon). In 1.3 you need different sources for each elemental... but I don't know if the uber still has that condition in Sigma...


500k without bearstance or runemaster? That's some BIS gear to reach that. I'm actually curious

Because it's garbage, guess the spell fits you nicely.
