Oh yes I know. I saw some awesome equipment for 50k or less. But I only have 48k. I figure I'll need at least 100-200k to outfit myself again. I don't mind. It's been so long since I've played I can use some practice in a relatively easy area.

You can get awesome stuff for much, much less if you look.

2 Skycutter legendary blades for 2700 each.  Seriously.  And if you look at my profile you'll see the dps they can put out.

Also, Angels.  ANGELS GANDALF.

Well, sure, but that's not the case here.  Bloke is saying 'I looked, shit is expensive'.  I'm saying 'You didn't look hard enough.'

Also, be aware that I was operating under the assumption that you're a filthy, filthy Eurofag, which was clearly wrong.

It's possible that your AH is more expensive.  I really don't know.   why so serious?

Whether it's 50k or 2k it's not the 500k I spent for my last upgrade before giving up on the game.

It's usually not. Several legendaries exist in the 25k range.

Make sure that when you look, you look at what auctions are ending soon.

I don't know why, but some people toss stuff up there and don't put in a buyout. I picked up several great pieces that got me through inferno for under 5k.

The gold drop seems to double between hell and inferno (although maybe not quite double, it's a lot more). And playing public games has bigger piles too.

Well.

Looks like I capped out my Barb.

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/tankstar-1170/hero/6915563

Everything else takes a whole bunch extra.

Also have an echo+1h axe that give me about 130k dps w/ life steal.

Not sure what to improve.

You can get a better yellow ring for relatively cheap that would give you more crit chance. Getting close to 30% crit would give you a very large boost to your damage.

Otherwise, yeah it gets expensive fast.

So, just a wee boast here because Barb is so fucking fucked to play mostly, but I have this gear and with all the lightning, things just die.  And die really, really quick.  My Char sheet is simply NOT a good indication of how quickly things are melting....

Anyone else managing any fun with the Barb ?

Yeeaaaaargh, I still can't get my barb to work. Don't know what I'm doing wrong (apart from not farming enough epixxxx), but he just seems to melt, compared to anything else.

The game is very melee unfriendly, and as I recall, barbs do not have a lot of the defensive shield abilities that mages and monks do.

I'm dying a lot. I like my barb but I don't like dying. I'll try your build and see if it works better for me.

Mine ?  I don't see that working terribly well without all that gear....

That said, Bloodthirst is crazy strong, especially when stacked with Paragon points.  If you're getting low on health, hit Ignore Pain and spin until you're at full health.

But make no mistake, Barbs are second only to the Demon Hunter in 'Oh Shit, This Class Sure Can Eat a Bag of Dicks.'

Getting some LoH and switching to faster Dual-Wield weapons was what I found made the most dramatic improvement for survivability on my barb. You can also try running Warcry with Impunity if you aren't already. It's a dramatic increase to your defense stats and a nice Rage source. It turns into a move speed increase if you can pick up a Chilanik's Chain. I blew all of my blood shards from RoS release until last week to get a level 70 version of the belt. It's that big of a QoL improvement, and the bonus extends to group mates too. If you are in a particularly strong group, you can also sub a damage ability for Sprint with Forced March. The two abilities stack and make it feel like playing with a permanent movement speed shrine enabled.

Last suggestions to boost survivability would be using Rend with Bloodlust (heal 0.5% HP per second for every mob hit) and always use Superstition as a passive.

Here is my build

Yeah, it doesn't. I went back to my build. I have super crappy gear, although Kadala gave me a set piece and 2 usable legendaries yesterday.

Still, it's just... not fun. WD is more fun, but pets.  Feels broken next to wizard.

Melee crusader in Torment is more fun than my warrior and has a lot more survivability (admittedly I have 50% block before skills kick in and heal on block) and my monk with similar gear to my warrior can wade through most packs and survive (again admittedly stacking resist all to 1000+ via talents helps). The warrior just seems to have nothing by comparison and his only saving grace is the shoulders that stop all my gear from being damaged when I die. It's nuts that a crusader that doesn't have the 33% mitigation (and is classified with the ranged classes) that warriors and monks both have can face tank better than the warrior that has this mitigation.

Crusaders got 15% mitigation and a viable shield though.
