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


Yeah gotta remember though that he's playing 1.3 so itemization is totally different. Plus having multiple sources of damage isn't really necessary anymore.

In general I avoid spirit guide or relying on wolves with this build because throw skills and wolves have subpar synergy. The great thing about being ranged in median is being able to hit any part of your screen but when wolves are applying their debuff to a couple mobs close to your character it sucks! :D

Then, take glad's dominance as uber skill. But if you have a more defensive build, take runemaster, or if you full attack, use Nephalem spirit...But if you already choose runemaster, why do you still go for max block? It's no sense

My throwbarb is different than this and uses Lacerator as weap for oskill which frees up points for anything. Also I use Kra hammerhead axe runeword (grandfather works too) for ancients hand oskill which melts bosses.
18k damage (current can go higher)
Somewhere around 50% deadly strike
Somewhere around 30% crushing blow
10k life
Max block
80% res
50% life leech
260k defence
25% chance to avoid
300%mf (current can go higher)
Fast as hell
Most fun build I play

Keep in mind some of my gear is sub-par and I have only used 250 signets so far.
Also need like 8 more charms.

Lmk if you want more details

I'm confused?

I don't go for max block. I don't put any points into dex at all.

Runemaster doesn't make the build defensive either, you're just using high defense as opposed to mediocre defense and high block

I tried lacerator but I don't like the way bear claw Nova works. It's inferior to Overkill just about every way imo.

And if I was going to use a skill that converts 100% to elemental I'd probably just focus on that and stack -res gear.

Your life is very low, as is the defense. Damage looks okay but bear claw nova spreads it out. That build just isn't for me but hey if you like it more power to you.

where are you seeing converts? My damage is all phys besides the little magic damage granted from bear claw.. (2k)
Also the need of that much life is not needed due to so much life steal and max block + avoid. I never get hit, and when I 1 throw im full hp.
I face tank mobs because I throw so fast (wolf stance) that they just melt and never have a chance to hit me.
I respect your opinion on overkill, the skill is just not my playstyle.

I mean it is an overkill guide....

for what it's worth, I never found bear claw nova that exciting either. I was generally better off with stampede in comparison, but depends on your style.
