Hi,

I am playing an elemental barb following this build on the ladder. I am hitting a survivability wall at lab level 7.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thank you,

I am playing ele barb so far myself, as as lab hater, all this lab stuff is learning curve to myself, still llearning fight vs phoboss and nephalem bane. But all it has given some experience.

Without further ado, put like 300- 350 to vitality, it adds like 3000 hp with titan fortutude.

Your block speed must be the last of "speed" and that is 232 , realistically 235. You are low defence melee, block rate must be 50% and block speed 232.

Craft or pick up 15% block rate jewels, preferably later. To craft 15% block rate jewels is true pain, trust me. You may go through 10 arcane crystals at jewelcraft without seeing one, trust me. Yes, your jewels are useless junk for this build. For jewelcrafting use all attribute rolls.

As you are using henchman pieces, henchman boots are must. Check out 3 piece bonus.

For buffing swap out feltongue swords to crafted 6 all skills throwing axes. Throwing axes allow to buff conflux too. And buffed conflux offer better ele pierce, the most important "more buff" stat there.

I checked your charms you have put to sleep uldy trophy and trophied uldy charm itself. Yes, you must run 2xtrophies from uldy. luckily, 10% drop chance, instead of usual 6. These are 2 most important upgrades, although time consuming. And last but not least, dulra aegis is missing. For calculating block speed, dulra aegis offers 30% block speed with right gem roll. Keep that potential in mind.
