I'm annoyed that in order to survive as a barb in inferno Acts 3/4 I need to purchase a largely expensive required level 50 ring where the only good stat on it really is 11% block. It really sucks that I need to spend that much money for a ring that I only really want for one stat.
Disclaimers: -I know I didn't need to purchase the ring but I'm not going to go back to hell difficulty just to search for one certain legendary ring.
-I know Justice Lantern isn't MANDATORY but it's one of those items now that FEELS like a necessity.
-I know the other stats on Justice Lantern are good stats but the fact that it's a low tiered item means all my other stats will take a hit in order to use it.
Does anyone share this feeling of mine? Even if it's just the annoyed feeling of it seeming like as a barb you need to have certain legendary items in order to be successful?
Quote:Get a good shield with high base block chance, and high block amount, throw on a justice lantern and helm of command, and your survivability goes up quite considerably.
I'd argue both are mandatory. Block is really underrated. @ShadowGomamon well that's the thing you need all these legendary items. I know how storm shield, helm of command, justice lantern and string of ears... What other class is almost forced to use specific items like this?
Quote:Well thats a perk of being a melee char. You need the gear to go toe to toe. @ShadowGomamon I do love being a barb though :) I actually had a wizard and switched to barb and have all my items to my friend. I like being in the fray instead of kiting and running.
I guess I should be happy though since needing to acquire certain unique items makes the game more like diablo 2.
