    Ive always used shield with my barbs but Im starting to think WW is better. With a 100m budget is it possible to gear a decent WW barb? Would it be more effecient than a swoard n board barb with same budget?

    Is there any thread with suggestions for gear for a WW build?

    For 100m you can easily gear a ww barb that is facerolling MP0-1 and i think it would be more efficient than the usual rend built.

    Lol didnt think about that :p But running with shield is kinda sucky no? Atleast from what Ive heard.

    yeah it feels like ww is a lot more efficient. What should one aim for in defensive stats? I have never geared a ww barb before.

    I think the old skorn/frenzy/rend/sprint/IgnorePain is best

    Depends on what MP level you're farming, I don't see any reason for a Bot to farm at higher levels then MP1. It's the best experience per hour (for me), and you're more then likely be gaining more legends/items due to faster farming speeds, rather then higher MP levels. I've been using Rend build since Level 1 Paragon, now I'm over 60, I felt it was a chance to improve my farming time, and go along with the WW build. I will then view how many items I get per hour on each build and thus, will figure out which is more effective at farming. With 100m budget, you'll probably come out quite well with a Barb which is able to farm MP1, but probably 2-3, however I am sure it'll slow down the rate of farming.

    Edit: Item's went up 200 per hour with WW build.

    Thanks for that answer.

    What's your unbuffed dps in those builds? Are they all dual-wields?

    100k for the first build
    80k for the second
    70k for the third
    if I don't remember them wrong.

    for the third build, it is really tough. Although, it misses a lot of crit and dmg, but for MP7+ half manual half automate boss farming or key farming, it doesn't die. If the dps is low, it is just the matter of how long it takes you to kill them.

    Stats on Act 3, MP1 over last 30 minutes or so. It's a small run but is on par with what I've been seeing on larger runs since I changed to the build below.

    45K dps, 40K hps, 7200 armor, avg resist around 550-unbuffed. 0 dph on MP1 in Act 3.

    ===== Item DROP Statistics =====
    Items:
    Total items dropped: 348 [598.16 per hour]

    49k hp
    75k dps
    600AR
    6.3k armor
    50% Critchance and ~400% Critdmg if i remember correctly

    WW Build with Bash and Overpower. Picked Bloodthirst as passive, and LS on both weapons+belt (Currently at ~10% LS with helps ALOT)

    Running MP2 in act3 with 15m xp/hr and 300k gold/hr. Tinkered around with different MPs and i found that at my gearlevel its not worth running mp3+ since xp/hr and items/hr go down quite a bit.

    Total items dropped: 247 [586.7 per hour]
    Items dropped by ilvl:
    - ilvl58: 15 [35.63 per hour] {6.07 %}
    - ilvl59: 7 [16.63 per hour] {2.83 %}
    - ilvl60: 41 [97.39 per hour] {16.6 %}
    - ilvl61: 89 [211.4 per hour] {36.03 %}
    - ilvl62: 51 [121.14 per hour] {20.65 %}

    I did the exact same thing figuring it was a good time for Blizz to go on a ban wave and I didn't want to lose everything, so I cashed out. When 1.05 came and I was still around I re-equipped him-just not quite as good as where I had him-and he *can* run MP5-it's just not real efficient.

    My barb is doing full A3 in about 35 minutes.
    ~25m exp/h
    ~700 items/h

    That's what we spend 100m+ on.

    Mhmm, spend 25m on a WW barb, which runs Act 3 in an hour, getting 450 items an hour.. or spend 100m and run it in half the time, gaining near double the items.. and gaining more gold and items per hour.. It is an investment you shouldn't skimp on..
