    Default First time I've really played D3

    Taking a break from DAoC and I'm not really sure what to do

    https://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/.../hero/87810302

    That's my barbarian, I can go through Torment V and it's rifts without too much hassle, but I'm not sure what to do to progress from here.. any insight?

    Btw I really only picked barbarian because for the longest time I mained a warrior in WoW and Sonya in HoTS and figured it would be the easiest to pick up on and it's the only leveled seasonal toon I've got

    Look at some different builds for the barbies. Reakors generally uses Furious charge and bolder toss which is a rune to a skill i can't remember the name off right now.

    If you wanted to try out another class just look for someone to power level you, Literally takes 5-10 mins tops to go from 0 to 70. From there it's really just finding gear, trying out different sets/builds to see what you like best. when you're in game "shift+L" gets you the leaderboards and you can look at top players solo builds and get a good idea of what to look for from there. If you're more into group play check out the 4 player leaderboard and see what they are using.

    Just looking at what your profile says, you need something to fill out that armor passive from the cube and probly a different ring/ammy setup and weapon(s).

    honestly the barb is probably the bottom of the heap in d3 and if you want a good melee character i'd recommend making a monk.

    if you want to continue the barb your going to want to start focusing your gear and build more towards something designed for higher rifting and torments. i'd recommend going either for a whirlwind barb build or a furious charge/ancient spear build.

    this is what a charge/spear build would look like http://www.diablofans.com/builds/783...ik-charge-barb

    and a whirlwind build would look like something like this http://www.diablofans.com/builds/829...whirlwind-gr90

    that gives you items and such to build towards and an idea of the skills to use to maximize on it.

    season 10 just started recently though i think so don't lock yourself into barb just because you have one max level. you can cap out a new character really quickly and start gearing them especially if someone helps you level.

    Ah that's a shame because barbarians are really cool. I loved my warrior in WoW and at the moment, I'm just using whirlwind and furious charge as my main damage. Whirlwind especially because of my Raekors 6 set bonus amd Ashbringer when it transforms.

    Thanks for the advice, I'll see about other melee classes, I just don't wanna let my barbarian fall by the wayside because I think it's a really badass class. I'm not really trying to be competetive, I'm just wondering what I could do from here.

    aim for a whirlwind build then, it can be alot of fun and while it'll be harder to take it as high in greater rifts as some other classes do with their better sets you'll probably never really notice if your not that competitive about reaching the top 50 or so of the leaderboards. work on getting together the items for the whirlwind build i posted and use the legendary gems suggested for it. biggest problem i see on your gear right now is your just using one legendary gem and its really important to be using one in each ring/amulet and to be using the right ones for your build.

    Got it. Also I think I found a set to start farming towards. Got a Gauntlet of the Wastes drop from a greater rift. Looks as if it's 100% geared towards buffing rend damage and whirlwind gets an 800% buff, so I'll try that.

    Are there any weapons I should be going after or is the Corrupted Ashbringer good for a whirlwind build?

    you want the set blades for the whirlwind build

    use whatever works until you have them both but those are what you want to aim for.

    Started playing D3 on my PS4 again on the weekend, making a WD for the millionth time

    You need to work out what your end goal is with Diablo

    If you don't care about how high you push GR or where you end up on leaderboards then stick with Barb and play the build that looks most fun to you, that's what I do now
