(it's cool in more than one way, but good luck finding one that is restricted to your class specifically), or B) beat Startled Witch and upgrade Sleep charm with Azmodan trophy, ruling out all other configurations (speaking of that, which would benefit this build the most?). Am I missing something, or there are no other viable sources of CBF?
- Which relics are useful for this build?

II) Skills
- Is Immortal really good enough to put more than one point into? With a single point in Immortal, maxed Wolf Stance and minimal +skill gear, barb reaches maximum FHR breakpoint. Avoid that might proc (1 chance out of 3, with maxed skill) only if you don't move out of harm's way is extremely unreliable, and I can't even imagine situations where it would help. In Median XL, trying to facetank was never a good idea.
- Why not put leftover points in Endurance, in the Mastery tab? Every point adds +1% to life. Yes, barb gets a lot more from Ancients' Blood, but some extra HP never hurt. Point for point it may even be better than Ancients' Blood, as latter benefits from +skills on gear and charms.
- Someone already argued that Mighty Vigor works best as one-pointer, do you think it should be maxed because of critical strike synergy with (passive) Bloodlust? Endgame setup boasts tons of life leech AND deadly strike, so it seems like four extra points in Vigor wouldn't make that much difference and could be spent elsewhere.

III) Ubers
- Only one thing here, actually. You mentioned that Phoboss eats through maximum cold resists, but without numbers it's not very helpful. AFAIK Phoboss can reduce player's max cold res by 2% on 6th lab and by one percent more on each subsequent floor, capping at 6% on 10th lab. Therefore (I'm writing this for less experienced players) one needs 96% effective max cold res - and sufficient flat cold res, of course - to take minimum damage from Phoboss.
My solution would be to carry an extra

(it's cool in more than one way, but good luck finding one that is restricted to your class specifically), or B) beat Startled Witch and upgrade Sleep charm with Azmodan trophy, ruling out all other configurations (speaking of that, which would benefit this build the most?). Am I missing something, or there are no other viable sources of CBF?
- Which relics are useful for this build?

II) Skills
- Is Immortal really good enough to put more than one point into? With a single point in Immortal, maxed Wolf Stance and minimal +skill gear, barb reaches maximum FHR breakpoint. Avoid that might proc (1 chance out of 3, with maxed skill) only if you don't move out of harm's way is extremely unreliable, and I can't even imagine situations where it would help. In Median XL, trying to facetank was never a good idea.
- Why not put leftover points in Endurance, in the Mastery tab? Every point adds +1% to life. Yes, barb gets a lot more from Ancients' Blood, but some extra HP never hurt. Point for point it may even be better than Ancients' Blood, as latter benefits from +skills on gear and charms.
- Someone already argued that Mighty Vigor works best as one-pointer, do you think it should be maxed because of critical strike synergy with (passive) Bloodlust? Endgame setup boasts tons of life leech AND deadly strike, so it seems like four extra points in Vigor wouldn't make that much difference and could be spent elsewhere.

III) Ubers
- Only one thing here, actually. You mentioned that Phoboss eats through maximum cold resists, but without numbers it's not very helpful. AFAIK Phoboss can reduce player's max cold res by 2% on 6th lab and by one percent more on each subsequent floor, capping at 6% on 10th lab. Therefore (I'm writing this for less experienced players) one needs 96% effective max cold res - and sufficient flat cold res, of course - to take minimum damage from Phoboss.
My solution would be to carry an extra

Hi!
I'm on 111 and I'm using the set.
When doing torajan my damage is below other classes from what I've seen and, if a goblin appears, it takes a long time to kill, the red goblin I can't even kill.
Even those torajan giants are taking a long time to die.
Can anyone check if I'm doing something wrong. please.

1) Craft yourself an axe with MOTW for prebuffing.
2) Max Wolf Stance. Take points from Immortal.
3) Your AR might be lacking. Invest points into Ancients' Blood.
4) Consume signets. I have hard time believing that you haven't even found any.

So my throw barb has breezed through Normal, Nightmare and Hell, and reached Baal at level 113. Now I'm doing the charm hunt, and most of ubers in Easy-Moderate range are a cakewalk.

However, I strongly disagree with statement that Quov Tsin is "a joke" if you gear properly. Even with 88% max elemental res and some absorbs (and PDR on rings/amulet), he melts HP in less than a couple of seconds. He cannot be fought head on, hit and run is the only way.

- There are objects on the map that block his Trinity Beam, most notably, four spires in the middle square.
- Quov Tsin loves teleporting when he takes damage, and worst thing he can do is teleport himself into one of two long narrow dead ends where he has you in plain sight, with little space to maneuver.
- Said dead ends also contain portals to Caldeum and Ureh, and this fight has no lockdown, so maybe if Quov Tsin ends up in one of those dead ends, you can try jumping in and out of the portal for at least until he teleports too far away (emphasis on "maybe", I haven't tested that).
- Laughter signifies him casting Bone Spear Nova, which should be avoided. I'm more than sure that it oneshots.

Baal was slain, Paragon Soulstone is mine. Level 114, (mostly) self-found gear, no duped signets.

- This fight is in large part luck-based, if he summons (for example) a Diablo clone early on, you may as well want to restart the run.
- Apparently, Baal summons minions and bosses on melee attack, and you're not a melee class, so keep distance (also because of Baal's flamethrower, it melts mana and HP).
- In case you didn't know this: don't bring your merc to Worldstone Chamber, he's not going to hold for long, and there's a chance that Baal will summon his AIDS friends while hitting your merc.
- Baal's summons confer him invulnerability, but their aura doesn't cover the whole map. I managed to kill Baal in the bottom left area, while there was a Diablo clone in bottom right and upper left corners of the map. (Also keep in mind that they don't expire with Baal's death)
- 200+ FHR is a must.
- Panic is your worst enemy, not just in this fight, but in general.

P.S. Sorry for the fourth message in a row.

Just did 5 quick runs of Quov and can confirm he is a joke (on lvl 142 RM 87/87/88/90 thrower, with only missing angelic touch from the template). The trick here is he does less damage in melee range, so just Overkill him to face.
