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.


agreed. everyone like's their own sauce.

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 meant for ancient's hand. It's an awesome skill but it doesn't leech and youd need two gear sets to use it to it's largest effectiveness.

I didn't mean to say your build can't clear mobs I was just a little concerned about killing bosses that do large amounts of damage in 1 hit. But I don't play it so I have no idea =)

I personally like builds that are effective at single target and mob clearing which is why I was drawn to Overkill. But to each his own. That's the beauty of median- there's so many different playstyles!

I encourage you to write your own throw Barb guide because I'm probably wrong about it and I'd like to see a guide that shows such a unique style. And I'm new to writing guides so I could probably learn a lot from yours :)

Just hit 110 on my first ever Barb (Second character ever) and after playing StormZon all the way through 90%+ of the game and now playing this class it does seem like i have more options for spec and gear for different situations. Damage and defenses are about on par with Stormzon in just TUs as well. I figure once i start working Sacred's and Runewords like the Boots this thing will be able to tackle nearly everything as well. Only difference with this class is if and when i do need to respec i seem to have more options available to me which is welcome.

So far its fun so thats all that matters to me. Ive been bouncing back a forth between Deathgaze/Axe and this throw setup and i like the throw setup i will definitely be using it to farm places like Tenganze and hopefully Toraja is actually a comfortable farm in this spec. I figure im not getting the full effect of throw though without having procs to use from Overkill though. I figure once i get some procs going Throw might feel better for clearing. Idk im kinda trying all the different specs out on this Barb since its my first one and im trying to learn the class. There are a lot of strong tools in the Barbs belt im finding just like with Amazon. Only on this class i dont get locked into just a single weapon/tree which is cool.

Cant wait to get to 125.. seems like on my Zon thats where things really start to come together for endgame. Around that point if you kept up with Charms as you went as much as possible charms alone is HUGE stuff for builds ive found. Especially if you upgraded into your endgame gear by this point once you hit Fauzt you can go from 125-135+ in just a few hours. At least thats how it played out on the Zon.

It's crazy how different the leveling from 120-125 is compared to everything else. It's almost as if the developers put the wrong exp value into those zones!

I loved Overkill ever since the olden days - great to see a guide for sigma :) thank you

What is the suggested strategy to MOs on gear? And how do you handle mana ? I just 100, equipped the big game hunter set and I'm really hurting on mana, chugging pots constantly, especially on boss fights.

Mana leech mos on weapon until you get the first easy charms with life/mana leech on them. Attack speed, fhr, enhanced defense, etc..You can get some ideas from Aerial's Tldr guide too. You can hit good breakpoints with runes in all slots too.
I don't mean to dwell...but I can't help myself.

1) Can someone tell me what they are using in all the sockets
2) How do you keep Titan Strike up as a ranged character?
3) Does 750k-1million defense refer to Titan Strike + standing next to wolf?

Right now, I have "Jah" in the weapon and "Lum" everywhere else.
