Hi guys, I am Chrono (aka Lorendawe). I am currently ranked #8 on na sc with barb. I mention This so you know that these questions arn't coming from some whiner that doesn't play the class or the game. I have made another thread that got literly no attention from the blue posters and devs.


I would like to ask these 2 questions again and add one more to the table. Please post up your feelings about these questions. Any and all input will help and the more people posting the more likely we are to get an answer.

1. Whats the reasoning behind our single target dps Being so low?

We are at a point that in greater rifts where we have to depend on gem procs to do about 80% of our single target dps no other class has to do that why us? Even with the procs from the gem it still takes 4-10 mins to kill a greater rift boss for a barb in 30+ greater rifts.

2. If gems and other items is how you are fixing classes from now on, Where are the legendary gems and items that let us tank?

We are at the point where we have to skip certain mobs because they have lightning enchanted or fire chains just to progress farther in the greater rifts. Barbs are suppose to be able to tank things yet we are more likely to die then any other class. With out 100% up time on ignore pain or massive toughness via res gems and sacrificing skill damage on our gear there is no way to melee things. (even with those things its still daunting how much damage we take.) In group play we do not even stand a chance. With out double unity a barb has no chance and even with it overcoming damage in greater rifts is way to much of an obstacle.

3.Is there a way that you can redesign trials so that there different and fair for all classes?

If you play in the top 50 as a Non Demon Hunter class you are pretty much forced to level and gear a Demon Hunter, or team up with Demon Hunters to reliably get your trial keys ran to 39+ every time. There is no way this was intended.

As always I stream guys so stop in and let me know your two cents about all of this so I can further more help the barb community as a whole! http://www.twitch.tv/lorendawe

Great discussion going on here, guys.

Regarding Chrono's second point, we do have plans to add more Legendary Gems to the game in the future, including those that are more defense-oriented. We don't have a time frame to share for when the next batch of Legendary Gems will be added just yet, though.

In the meantime, we've been keeping a close eye on your gem suggestions, so if you've got an idea...let us know!
