    Wow... went back to play normal since I hadn't played very much Barbarian yet... I forgot how fricken easy it is. Screamed through Act 2, one shotting most everything. I think I've decided normal is more fun than the higher difficulties, even though it's too easy. But you find newer, better gear all the time, you level up much faster, and when you level up you're constantly unlocking brand new abilities, not just new runes, and you aren't frustrated to all heck by elites with invul minions/shielding/extra health/vampiric.

    You have a 1hander and a quiver. you can hold a 2 handed crossbow and a quiver. or 2 1handed crossbows

    none of the 2h's i find are better and dual wielding 1h's are horrendous unless you have really good 1h's.

    Edited:

    which i don't.

    Just spent 1m of my hard earned dosh on a new amulet (got a good deal on one with 1d 11h left) and finally broke 1k resist on some stats.



    Few thousand more dps and I might be able to solo some Act 3 :)

    Leap with Iron Impact rune is one of the best abilities in the game imo. I can't imagine playing Barb without it.

    sorry to say but i don't think it'll really sell... at all. no primary stats nor vitality. legendaries at the moment are pretty crap most of the time, hopefully the improvements in 1.03 will sort things out.

    guess you're just gonna have to keep farming

    Are they being fucking serious? It takes 1-3 DAYS to add funds to my account?

    And when I try and add paypal to my battle.net acc it doesn't let me because my phone number is too small in order to continue. Fuck this.

    that's not my problem at all. I want D3 soo very badly, but I can't decide between it and the other game.
    IMO if you loved D2 you'll probably be disappointed in D3. But it depends on what you loved about D2 - if you loved it purely for the multiplayer co-op action then D3 probably wouldn't disaapoint there.

    However Borderlands 2 looks like borderlands 1 except better in every single way.

    You could also decide to get Torchlight 2, which was made by the actual people who did D2, and appears to carry the same "feel" of those games very well into a new (more colorful, but still somewhat dark) universe.

    I wish I wasn't poor. I get nothing for drops, even with inferno Butcher runs of nearly 200% Magic Find. I've resorted to loading and reloading and reloading my game in hopes that some good blue rings appear on a merchant to sell those on the AH

    The some people who made Diablo 2 doesn't really mean much considering they also made Hellgate: London and the first Torchlight.

    Hellgate was a flop just like any other MMO starting out of nowhere, but Tourchlight? The first Torchlight was really good, the downsides to it pretty much amount to a "first-time testing-the-waters game" rather than any real issues (i.e. lack of features like co-op/multiplay, it pretty much took place in the same enviornment through the whole game, etc).

    Torchlight was the worst Diablo clone I've played besides Dungeon Runners. Titan Quest, The first two Diablo games, Darkspore, Champions of Norrath, Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, and even Hellgate: London were all better. I don't care if was really cheap- I'd rather pay six bucks for a slice of pizza than 25 cents for a piece for crust.

    It's pretty bad really but it can be viable in some builds that are heavily centered around dps. I'm talking about inferno viable by the way.

    Edited:

    Irrelevant. Battle Rage and War Cry have 2 very different purposes.

    yeah but war cry affects your teammates

    battle rage only affects yourself

    honestly war cry is better than battle rage in inferno even with dps builds, without survivability it's kind of pointless and war cry offers quite a lot

    Buying a level 60 weapon with reduced level requirement was one of the best ideas any of you guys ever had (I forget who). Doubled my DPS for 5k gold.

    Already have warcry with impunity.


    Also, could someone give me an estimate worth of these 2 items if I were to put them on the AH (eventually RMAH)

    Obviously. If you aren't using War Cry with impunity then you're doing it wrong. I was saying that you can use both.

    having war cry occupying a skill slot just doesn't seem worth it

    especially with leap, merciless charge, wrath of the berserker, and ignore pain being extremely useful

    Warcry ups my all res with like 100-200.

    And my armor with an additional 1000-2000

    So I'd say it's pretty much worth it.

    The thing about battle rage is that I deal no substantial amount of damage when in a party, so I wondered what I'd change it to.

    Merciless Charge sounds good, but what rune should I get for it?


    (Current skills: leap,warcry,battlerage,WotA,Frenzy,Revenge)
