How to get this Barb going? I was considering to post this in the barb forum, but since it is a part of a project, I think here is more appropriate. In short: back in 1.10 I had quite a few 90+ clvl characters, including 4 clvl99 from 1.09. I had almost complete self grail but after a couple years of playing 1.10 single player and finding no better rune than Ohm, I got frustrated and quit. When Blizzard finally made runes a bit more common I got nostalgic and decided to give it another try. I decided to start fresh from scratch. As usual my plan is to build a barb who will run NM Meph, get enough items and depending on the major finds to start cookie cutter Sorc, Necro or Zon. However it seems I have worse luck than expected and at clvl60 my best weapons are Honor Twin Axe and Unique Rune Scepter. The remaining equip is even weaker - not even a single source of CB, just 3% mana leech and so on. Currently the barb is using frenzy because of leeching problems and low damage. I want to respec it as soon as he becomes ww ready. Now after this intro, the question is how to do that? I can think of several options: 1. Run Normal Baal or maybe even Meph to get at least Goblin Toes and Tarnhelm but it seems waste of time since he can't drop much more than that. 2. Run NM countess to get a Pul and upgrade the unique rune scepter to elite. 3. Keep running NM Meph even though it is currently a bit slow. 4. Go for Hell Countess for faster rune find than NM Countess, but I fear it will be pain from NM Meph to the Hell Countess and the Countess itself might be a bit too strong for me. 5. Try to get to NM Act 5 and shop for cruel weapons. Is it likely to get a decent cruel at clvl60 from merchents in Act 5 NM? What other options are out there? I know that Sorc is better to run NM Meph, but at the moment I have no items for her and she is too weak without any items.
