Why people say barb easy...

Super hard to farm good items. I've been gambling so many times to upgrade ancient chest/shoe but just keep getting bad items.

I think so far my GR is lvl 43 or something.
I deal around 60m-200m whirlwind damage. A bit more when my CoE is at physical mode.

So far I find that I need
Call of ancients - share 50% damage
and
Wraith of berserker - reduce 50% damage to be comfortable in GR 43-45.

I never got a unity ring so far...paragon lvl 326. So difficult to upgrade things....

this is my hc s4 barb (currently at 50, probably can push to 55 with good map): http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/dannyocp-1381/hero/67574619

a lot of your itemization based around ur BK weapons (so much CDR), when actually u can go IK weapon and get the 3p bonus which releases all ur CDR for more dps stats as long as u WW 90% of the time to reduce CD on WOTB

also, why do u use frenzy? use furious charge with merciless assault and proc it every 5 sec for 50% dmg from focus/restraint. COE is overrated for non-top 100 chars who are not whacking GR70+ roomful of mobs with the heal monk + EP monk + pull zdps barb + hota barb combo, and it's situational most of the time for hitting low hp mobs in gr 40-60.

in ur case, u can get perma 50+50% from focus/restraint using furious charge which, if used properly, will keep the 100% buff up 99% of the time. the only time u won't be able to keep it up is if u charge only 1 mob (3 sec downtime)

edit: just realized my barb currently using goldfind gear :p

my GR set up armour kanai ability is actually fury of ancients, with 50% dmg reduction rune

Thanks for advice. How is your toughness like? I only have 1 unity ring till now...need 1 more before I can't don't die without 50% reduction.

Btw your build nice...can see damage increase by a lot except that surviving is a problem without unity

my toughness is double yours so yeah, should work on that. i think should be fine once u swap out CDR. also, i use taeguk (84m when at 66 stacks + ww buff) + pain + stricken

as for unity, only u have doubles of it coupled with the immortal token for follower then should switch to unity + COE

Done GR62, 2nd try. Cannot complete GR63 after countless tries. Not enough DPS, always lag behind. Now both Shenlong also ancient though 2nd shenlong is like non-ancient dps, no max spirit. Pity. May have reached limit, unless farm gem level and para.

Half here half there build. lol mainly non-cdr variant. cdr on gears now basically legacy.

Passive - STI, alacrity, exalted soul, harmony and sixth sense (this one on Hell fire amulet, best roll i can get thus far)

Serenity instead of epiphany, 3 times every minute for total 12s of immunity, sounds better than 15s of 50% damage reduction every minute.

Gem: trap, stricken and simplicity.
