      Hey guys!

      My experience:
      I see so many threads where ppl ask for the most efficient way to farm GRs as barb, so here I will post my results.

      Im botting GR57 all day long without issues, not many deaths, running the popular Barb HotA build at paragon lvl 850+
      My exp/h is around 30-40 billion depending on density, but after several hours I count about 35 bn/h.

      My setup:
      I use all the same items as posted in the build linked below, with some modifications which I'm gonna explain further.
      Base build: http://www.diablofans.com/builds/57383-grift-75-hota-barb-group-build

      Legendary gems:
      • Bane of the Trapped (72)
      • Taeguk (68)
      • Esoteric Alteration (67)
      Normal gems:
      • Head - Red
      • Chest - Red
      • Legs - Red
      • Weapon - Green
      Skills:
      • Furious Charge - Merciless Assault
      • Hammer of the Ancients - Smash
      • War Cry - Veteran's Warning
      • Battle Rage - Bloodshed
      • Wrath of the Berserker - Insanity
      • Call of the Ancients - Togeather as One
      Passives:
      • Ruthless
      • Rampage
      • Berserker Rage
      • Relentless
      • Nerves of Steel (Hellfire Amulet)
      Cube:
      • Weapon - The Furnace
      • Armor - Leoric's Crown
      • Jewelry - Unity
      Templar gear:
      • Thunderfury
      • Wyrdward
      • Unity
      • Freeze of Deflection
      • Ess of Johan
      For legendary potion I use Bottomless Potion of Regeneration (Restores an additional 99,256 Life over 5 seconds)

      Toughness:
      It's important to use Esoteric Alteration (gem) and Relentless (passive) to have enough toughness. While running mainly full damage, except for these two modifications, I rarely die. Don't be worried that you will very often stay at veeery low life percentages, below 35% life your toughness is skyrocketing.
      Toughness is 30 billion unbuffed, 100 billion while below 50% health and 200 billion below 35% health while both gem and passive is active.
      For self healing you rely on Life per Fury Spent, which you can only get from belt, passive or weapon. I only use LPFS from my ancient belt which puts me at 1,180 LPFS. Keep in mind Relentless (passive) doubles your LPFS while active. I also have 5,580 LPK, 8,044 LPH and 17,165 LPS.

      My gear in general is really good, all ancients and close to max rolled Focus, Restraint and Hellfire Amulet.

      Unbuffed stats:
      Strength: 11,101
      Life: 705,447
      Damage: 1,827,963
      Toughness: 29,608,736
      Recovery: 1,470,035

      Trinity settings:
      Mostly default, but some important settings you need to change.
      - Set "Minimum Trash Mob Pack Size" to 4
      - Untick "Ignore monsters while reflect damage buff is active"
      - Untick all avoidance settings, except "Attack Mobs in AoE"
      - Turn on "Fury Dump Always" under barbarian settings to spam battle rage for LPFS heals.
      - Untick "Use Furious Charge OOC" under barbarian settings, this prevents the bot from waiting for Furious Charge cooldown.
      - Wrath of the Berserker settings: Use when not on cooldown
      - Under Items->Pickup->Ignore item situations: Turn on everything except "ignore two handed weapons" and "ignore legendary in AoE" (this shouldnt really matter for GRs anyway, but nice for speed rifts)
      - Turn on "Give higher priority to shrines" (I think this is on by default)

      Very important! You need to edit BarbarianCombat.cs to only charge current target.
      EDIT: As of Trinity version 2.13.32 shipped with latest beta, there is no longer any need to change this file :)

      Trinity version: 2.13.32
      Adventurer version: 1.1.0.107

      Thanks to all the demonbuddy and plugin devs!
      I hope this can be useful to others, feel free to ask if I missed something :)

      mines going real well but it keeps trying to cast furious charge while its on cooldown which is causing some pauses and standing still. thanks heaps for the content mate :)

      • Thank you for detail info.
        One thing i noticed is that babarian combat.cs Furious charge code is exactly same with first one and second one.
        Look at closely.
        Am I missing something?

      I dont have this issue, but try to disable "Use Furious Charge OOC" under barbarian settings in Trinity.

      Not exactly the same, I marked the changes in red. Basically just commented out 3 lines.
      I attached the edited file for you aswell, keep in mind each time Trinity updates you have to edit this again.

      While it doubles LPFS it also halves fury cost so the actual amount healed per hit is the same.

      How fast are you clearing the 57's?

      I am running in full ancient set, wep, regular nicely rolled rings/amu and am having trouble clearing 52 in the right amount of time.

      However I do notice I get this message: "[Trinity] Clicking UI element Conversation Button (565536576)" everytime I kill a blue/yellow pack. Anyone else having the same problem?

      Everytime that message comes up the bot stands still for 5-10 seconds before maybe picking up 2 of the 3 rift globes... I haven't experienced that delay in picking up the orbs/hlobes before... That is definently causing me some timeloss, especially because of the fact it doesn't pick up all the rift orbs each time.

      I have not seen or heared of this message before, so I cant help with that. Anyway, I would try a fresh install and make sure you use latest version of DB beta, Trinity and Adventurer.

      My clear times varies from 6 - 12 minutes. On very good density I have seen 6 minute clears, but this is rare. Average is 10-12 minutes. I have also tried running GR58, but I find it more xp efficient to run GR57. Also while running GR58 I sometimes missed the timer if I had a really bad rift, that does not happen in GR57.
