As Barbarian are drawing increasingly attention in the Patch 1.0.5, this time we would talk about the play style of Barbarian regarding the weapon choices. 1000 Barbarian players will have 1000 kind of play style. But in choosing weapons, there are only three which are Dual Wield, 1-Hand Weapon + Shield and 2-Hand Weapon. Which is Your Barbarian’s Play Style?
Dual Wield: With no doubt that Dual Wield is the fast way to complete Paragon Power Leveling. Two weapons will increase your DPS remarkably which will save a lot of time in killing the monster. We all know that the high monster power will reward high XP bonus. If you have two weapons both with a socket where you can put two 100% critical hit damage gems, your DPS will enlarge enormously as you can think. It is kind of aggressive play style.
1-Hand Weapon + Shield: Take a careful examination of the top 10 Paragon Level Barbarian and you will find that a large proportion Barbarians are playing with shield. Let me explain it like this. If you are with DPS unbuffed at 80K, you can kill the normal monsters with just one kick. At the same time if you are with DPS unbuffed at 50K, you call also kill the normal monsters with just one kick, but the survive ability is enhanced a lot with the shield. The efficiency is the same, but the survivability increase a lot. Which one would you choose? This is especially important if you choose Monster Power higher than level 7. This is a defensive play style.
2-Hand Weapon: With the gorgeous weapon Skorn, you can barely resist the lure of this kind of high life steal weapons. High DPS and high life steal are the two main stats of the Barbarian weapon which are all in just one piece. It is ideal weapon. But the price is a little expensive if you want to buy really good one. Even the normal standard is around 100 million Diablo 3 Gold.
