Pat. GetRichQuick: A whole lotta gold

I've always wanted a gold-find barb. The impediment, however, was always my lack of Lem runes that I knew I would need. Well, after trading for them, I made mine and named him GetRichQuick. He has one purpose: kill High Council members, Hork them and then distribute the money to a lvl 96 character, who will them gamble for Lancers [gloves] of Alacrity and Boots with fire and light res and fr/w. Here's some stats:

lvl 82

STR: 138/113
DEX: 59/22 (should be at 58, but I have a light res charm that gives +2 dex)
VITA: 360/360
nrg: base/base

Life: 3886 (slvl 21 BO)
Mana: 337

WW AR: 4275
WW dmg 1: 435-1308
WW dmg 2: 445-1327

Zerk AR: 4441
Zerk damage: 502-1509 (can't remember which axe)

Conc AR:3945
Conc dmg: 586-1764 (can't remember which axe)

RES: 85/-12/75/-12

Gear:
274 DC /w UM
280 DC /w ed% jewel (total 280% ed)
Wealth Archon (300% GF)
Crown of Thieves /w Lem rune (148% GF)
Crescent moon
Chance Guards (38% MF; 200% GF)
IK Belt
Inferostride (70% GF)
Gheed's (151% GF)
Switch: 2x Ali baba /w 2x Lem (150 GF + 205 scaling GF + 82% scaling MF)

Total Horking GF: 1578%
Biggest pile: ~75K

Merc:
Reaper's Toll /w Amn
Guardian Angel
Kira's /w Ral

Skills (pre +1 BC):
20 WW
20 Axe master

A few comments on gear:

Death Cleavers are the most under-rated axes out there. With Grief, Beast and Oath axes out there, these babies don't get used a lot. I don't have a huge rune stash and I don't HF rush, so I don't have any of those. So I use DC's. I love them, mostly beause they have huge ED, huge DS and lots of speed. For this setup, they are great.

I don't have CBF on this guy. It works for this setup and monsters, but I don't recommend going without it questing. It is just too annoying if you were to be running. However, without CBF, I move slower and therefore get more hits in.

My AR is low, but it works fine because of the amount of hits dual-wielding WW gets in. The AR is even boosted by multiple 100+ AR Steel GC's (of sus/vita). The DS helps get kills. The merc's decrepify also adds damage (-50% enemy physical resistance) and breaks PI's. However, the Reaper's does some cold damage. This makes some Council shatter, and I don't get to hork them. Despite this, I will stick with the Reaper's, mostly because of the Decrep. I have also tried an Eth C-Moon (in a Cryptic Axe) and a shael'd Steel Pillar. Neither worked better.

I chose to ignore poison and cold res, and it has worked just fine. The additional max fire res is great, and the Infernostrides are the perfect boots for it. The only worry I have is getting hit by a FE/CE explosion at close range. I rarely die, but it happens every once in a while. Also, the Blizzard from the healing-shaman things tends to hurt.

Some of the other GF barbs listed in the Pat/Mat compilation use LoH instead of Chance Guards, both the fire res and damage to demons (350%!). I think the kill is fast enough to justify not using them. Also, I like the additional gold. Also, the Ali Baba's have scaling GF at +2.5% GF/lvl, making an additional 5% per clvl.

Happy reading.

Re: Pat. GetRichQuick: A whole lotta gold

Nice pat, good to know that my Lem runes are being used, that AR seems real low though, even with DC's -33%TD

btw, why not just switch LoH for chancies for horking purposes, 350ED to demons will help

also I thought a few hours of shopping gets you those gloves

Re: Pat. GetRichQuick: A whole lotta gold

Congrats on the nice char.

I wouldn't bother gambling for the Lancers of Alacrity, I think it would be easier to shop them from Anya, would be cheaper as well.

Congrats again :thumbup:

Just so this isn't spam, CRG, if you want an upgrade over your 280% ED DC, I'd swap with you (no extra cost - I'm not using it anymore, and don't plan to). If I had a spare you could have this for free, but it's my only DC at the moment. The axe was a gift/payback from omgwtfbbqpwned, but the jewel was one I found in LK.

Let me know.

Re: Pat. GetRichQuick: A whole lotta gold

Nice work. He kinda looks like my goldfinder. (except beast/grief). Now, pile up on GF charms and hork piles of 20k more. I got 93k as biggest pile, with the same setup but more GF charms.

Re: Pat. GetRichQuick: A whole lotta gold

While I'm sure he had some impressive horks going on, did you find you actually got more gold over time than simply by selling stuff for 35k? I find with any of my MF characters, I get plenty of gold just by selling useless armor, staves, wands, and scepters (especially with high-tier staffmods).

Re: Pat. GetRichQuick: A whole lotta gold

Yes Pharaoh. With my barb i make about 10-14 million in gold in an hour. Noway you can do that with selling items.
