So... as a Cata barb, the general consensus seems to be that going sage is the better choice.
Being a cata barb is my primary objective, so I will not compromise on that aspect of cultivation if there's a clear advantage in terms of general tankiness.
My question then becomes...
How well can a sage barb perform soloing TT or some other instance to farm coin?
I'm looking not only at APS vs skill spam, I know sages can attain 5 aps... although it does require some fancy goodies, and possibly engraves to boost dex and keep higher vit stat on the barb...
But is it really worth trying to solo TT with only 300 base strength be it with claws or skill spam?
I guess that's my real question... Will I really be doing decent damage with anything below 400-500 base
I'm open to a lot of thoughts, and I'll definitely follow up on replies.
Here's roughly what I am thinking in terms of build:
