  • I would like to know why you say this. Initially, barbs were the class that needed most investement on gear (togather with clerics probably), as they were expected to tank bosses which hit hard back then. That is a way off seeing things. Another is that pve content never got rescaled to gear progress, which enabled any…
  • @Jaabg : You are right that you don't need 5 aps +10 to play, don't need lvl11 amp, etc. But everyone is judged on their class, gear and lvl of their skills. The number of "friends" a veno has will be influenced by the lvl of their amp. For any class, r9 +10 should come with a friendlist extension. That's just how 80% off…
  • Just 1 point that I didn't see mentionned : Barbs aren't that unwanted at 100+ anymore. The changes in bh has made barbs wanted in all bh and even a "must have" for some ppl. It is true however, that nirvana is though to get in as a barb. Even aps barbs aren't really wanted since the initial hype is over. But nirvana isn't…
  • Which add is better depends also on the rest. +mag is exactly like att lvls but based on the weapon attack. The more magic you have, the less impact the next +1 mag will have. Same with crit, which depends on your crit before (but I don't like this approach on crit, as imo the value of crit is that in creases the…
  • With blessing, that +2 att lvl would increase your hit by 1.09% roughly, without the blessing that is 1.19%. Ofc, this only affects damage and not healing. Just for information, each attack lvl increases your attack by 1% of your raw damage that is in C window (then takes into account defences ofc). So the +2 attack lvl…
  • Just to add : - R8R would be an option. - G15 poleaxe/polehammers are not very wanted because their unique addon is the low chance for +20 att lvl, -requirement b:embarrass and physical defence debuff b:shutup that is not really wanted as it will overwrite other classes better debuffs when you don't want that. The dual…
  • Some weird choices in there : - Why put the LA headgear ? Would be better to put in the HA version and restat the str bonus to dex, as the helmet has lower str requirement then armor anyway. You will have an extra 5 att lvls also. - Is the necklace really just for the crit ? I don't even know what that necklace is tbh. I…
  • {snip} Being a tank i have never learned or used any of the human form skills. Not only do i think i will not use them in the future either, it also completely disables me of judging them in demon or sage form. You will probably use them in the future. Take a look at them at the least when deciding, don't just ignore them.…
  • Personally, I tried out an aps build (4 aps sage with G15 nirvana fists) but restatted back to vit. I don't think fist barb is bad, but in my case the loss of hp and restriction in gear really wasn't worth the advantages of fists. Imo, fists are only to be used on bosses that you won't tank (quite often, you will be wanted…
  • @Burnout : That is actually an answer that does makes sense. Maybe I should just make a mystic and see for myself. I do like the class in my squads a lot, like I said before, just not when looking for aoe power. Could be that I only run into the alts that spam the seal aoe and don't have the important lvl100 skill. Just…
  • Everyone knows what you mean, but all just hammer the point that barbs aren't "NEEDED" in the strict sense of the word. You meant to say barbs are "WANTED" again, which nobody can deny. Even if it isn't the case for specific persons, who often can tank the bosses themselves, there is a higher demand for tanks that are…
  • I got the morai skill, and it helps a lot. It's not a 100% aggro against everything and anything, but my aggro ability increased by a lot. Since it's an aoe, it's really noticeable on aoe groups once you find to position yourself correctly (line aoe while the rest is all round or round target). On lvl? bosses, I hold aggro…
  • Makes me wonder how much hp you have... I've tested how the bleed works, the results are somewhere in the guide KawaiiJen made. Just sage hp buff on my sin, cuts the bleed of 1st tick in 2. Also, the 1st tick is 3x the ticks after. The bleed appears with 1st tick, so you simply can't spark it off before the, for most,…
  • Needed or simply more appreciated, I did notice a difference on barb when it comes to squads. And I'm glad about that. I'm glad they made the bosses lvl?, cause it helps on aggro a bit. I don't have much problems on that part. Those who can't tank, will hold back, and if they don't, to bad for them b:laugh I also tank bh…
  • Barbs that are affraid to engage more then 2 mobs, or worse, fistbarbs that use fists for mobcleaning part of an instance. Unfortunately, this is most barbs now. Venos that don't seem to have pets. Why even play a veno ? Archers that don't use any of their bow skills. I know all the permaspark blabla, but at least use BoA…
  • From my experience, the IH-like buff doesn't appear according to damage done. As I multi my own bh aba/seat from time to time, I don't always do much damage. However, I think the amount healed is related to the damage done (or maybe number of hits received). For instance, last time on bh aba when I had just my bm poking…
  • Herc with BB damage reduction and Salvation goodies would be ... wow ... just simply WOW b:surprised
  • I agree with this. He even re-opened a thread accompanied with a reply on a sensitive topic. He doesn't need to post in every thread either. At least we can see he reads what's posted. If you take out the useless threads ("when is 2x ?"), the QQ/rage threads ("I got scammed by X when buying exp room !") and the…
  • Having tons of mobs chacing you. On top of that, since last espension + update barbs got a place again in the high lvls and aoe teamwork is starting to live again. While I had a bit of a barb-dip before, I'm really enjoying to play the class again.
  • My thoughts on reading this thread : 1) There is a "Sanctuary" subforum ?! b:surprised 2) WC... ugh... yellow chat has been banned from my screen ages ago. It only gives drama and fail squads. 3) I know about some rivallery between faction on or server, but it's mainly attention seeking really. I come accros squads with…
  • A little comment first, ppl being over-interested (to not call it "obsessed") with others gear really gets annoying. For instance, when lvling up my bm, I got soooooooooooo tired of all the "why don't you get deicides?", "why don't you get TT99 armor for -int?", etc. Why would I have to explain every run that I got the +7…
  • Typically there is about 200 gold on sale on Sanc. If I add the few signatures of Sanc ppl on these forums, there is at least 20.000 just standing somewhere... I'm pretty sure it's the same for shards. Goods and/or money taken out of an economy isn't a good thing, that is one of the rare points all theory schools (at least…
  • Well, I don't really agree with all your rants points, especially the "lot of demand part". Atm, I think most of the demand is merchants. And I also think you underestimated the HUGE supply that is in the merchants banks. On gold this can be seen, and I suspect it to be the same with gems and other items. It's not the lack…
  • I prefer the rant to the usual "it's Supply and Demand that rule the prices". I hear that so much that I start to wonder if ppl actually know what it means and if they actually read a newspaper past 5 years b:surrender I think most don't even understand how big the impact of the kitamura/warrenwolphy fever is... It sucks…
  • @Maelael : On my barb I do have a good belt (jungle one, which is pretty close to warsong), it's just that I can't stash it to use it on bm. I guess I'll stay just with empty sockets for a while longer, maybe put in some flawless since I got a few. Sapphires seems not a great idea, so I'll drop that. Just one note, cause…
  • TW is out of the question simply for time reasons. PvP very occasionnally, just log in on Sanc and look at wc once, you'll get why. PvE wise, it changes quite often. On barb anything where you gather up mobs (tm, unwined 99, lunar). Unlike most squads nowdays, I don't like to go 1 by 1. On bm, I'm kinda figuring out what I…
  • Well, I'd rather go for the nirvy with jades then get another r9 set for 2 (and if you count my 90s seeker and veno, 4) different toons. Eventually, it would be cheaper to recast my sins r9 then equiping all my alts with r9 gear b:shocked I'm mostly wondering what to do, because I doubt vit stones will go down and 50mil+…
  • Thx for the replies. Just to be more clear : I simply consider vit stones too overpriced to be still worth the trouble getting. It's not that I couldn't afford them, it's more that I'm not willing to put in the effort. On Sanc, prices have become way to unrealistic and I rather spend my coin on something else. Some…
  • Luckily I never had to use that kind of "trick" to kill a boss. I'm sure you know very well what I mean. Imo, endgame bosses shouldn't be tanked, let alone solo'ed, by a LA class. It breaks all team-play when you don't need squads because 1 or 2 classes are able to solo litteraly every boss in about the same time as a…
  • <== Here's at least 1 barb that would actually play again if the class would have an actual use again. Out of all the barbs I know from the past 3 years that still play, 80%+ rerolled a bm or sin (including me) and don't do anything on their barb anymore besides TW and delta only with ppl they know. The rest went fist…
