ok, to be more specific, barbarian is the easiest class to play on normal. they can literally go through normal by hitting nothing but the left mouse button biggrin.gif if you are having problems, then your gears needs work. at the normal difficulty, it's actually very hard to kill a barbarian who is properly dressed. what makes this class special is that they are a strength based toon. witch doctors and wizards share intellect as primary stat, while demon hunter and monks share dex as their primary stat. so gear wise, nobody is going to compete with you except other barbarians.

strength is the primary stat that contribute to your armor. (intellect is resists and dex is dodge) so as a barbarian you are mitigating the most amount of damage simply going with max dps build. together with some life tap gear (life after kill, life per hit, life on % dmg delt) you are practically unkillable. the ONLY way you'd have problem in normal is you are severely under geared (using level 8 weapon at level 18 or something like that) and that really isn't rocket science to figure out.... visit the auction house. pick up a weapon that is appropriate to your level and basically hold down the auto-win button....

the way you posted your original post is like you are trolling because everyone knows on normal difficulty, barbarian is practically unkillable. most of the barbarians i see takes longer to loot then it takes them to kill the 25 mobs that dropped those loots...

I wasn't trolling but I think I figured my problem was probably my eq. My weapon isn't too bad but I need better armor and whatnot.

spell dmg isn't bad for normal difficulty at all so i wouldn't worry about any other stats other then strength... your attacks are AE based so any kind of weapon swing will land you a heal if you have any kind of life regen stat like life per hit or life of percent dmg delt. life per kill is fairly useless on boss fight since there aren't too many little critters around for you to tap your hp back... don't worry about the color of the weapon. at lower levels, a blue weapon is often much more powerful then a yellow. yellow often have crap stats like loot range/more gold/more exp/ etc... does nothing for your survivability or killing speed. look for gear that gives you the highest DPS, then stack strength like there is no tomorrow and you will KNOW what i mean when i say the left click is the auto-win button for barb's in normal.

the biggest mistake a new player can make is to NOT use the auction house. buy the best weapon for your level. if you can find someone who can craft you some gems, have them craft the highest level gem you can afford. gems are not level limited so if you can afford it, you can twink yourself with the highest tiered gem and just tape the left mouse button down and hand the mouse to your cat so your cat can win normal difficulty for you biggrin.gif

also, the proper way to USE the auction house is to narrow your search by putting a limit on max buyout price. don't pay stupid prices that AH farmers are selling. just get something dirt cheap that is of your level and you'll do fine. never let your weapon fall more then 2 or 3 levels below your current level. that's when things get stupid hard if you do that. armor wise, it's not a huge deal. just wear the best you find during your travels. weapon and gems are what you spend $ on. once again do NOT pay stupid prices. if you cant find gems, make your own. gem crafting is expensive, but it'll be even more expensive if you pay stupid prices.. do your search from 10k gold buyout to see what kind of stuff is out there, then limit it down to 5k gold buyout or less to see what you can afford. remember you'll use that same weapon for only about 2 to 3 levels so there is no point in spending too much... the game is easy when you have a beast weapon in your hands. everything else is just strength stacking

Only difference is no rmah ever, and the whole dying thing. Whatever class you feel you can survive with is what you should use.

How good is this gear? Like pretty good . Normal. Or amazing deals but not the best and 5 million yikes hope lv50+ drops a lot more money because so far I think I've only made 750k total including what I've spent.

PS. My weapons will jump From 140s dips to 230dps just upgrading my monk from lv46 to lv 51 weapons that's such a big jump doing my best to keep eyes on good ah deals. Any tips in regards to weapon upgrades there are many new stats as well to choose from +%weapon damage as example.

Thread Starter 
anyone else have a really hard time deciding on builds?
I feel like i'm switching every 5 minutes on my 57 WD "this is good but this might be better" and "I liked that last build, wait actually I liked that other one" I think I might roll a die or something and try totally random builds and see how fail/awesome they are...

I still have yet to play mine frown.gif.. thinking im doing monk though but not 100% sure, he just seems like he's a paladin/MA assassin mix. I dunno, i'm odd.

What seems to be doing well in later difficulties?
