Do you think life steal on barb is any good? I feel like I should have some but the most weapons give is like 3%. That's only max 500 hp per hit and given that I have 40k I dont think it would make much of a difference when some elite pack jumps me.
Also, I literally need wrath of the berserker to even stand a chance against elites. And basically if they aren't weak I have to kill 1 before I die, wait til wrath is up again then go kill the second also probably dying again then come back for the third.
What skills are you using on yours? I switched now to leap on MB2 to initiate with stun. Then go in with wrath and battle rage. When stun over activate war cry and ignore pain, and obviously revenge whenever active. On MB1 I use frenzy with the each frenzy is 4% extra damage.
lifesteal is a wasted stat as it has an 80% nerf in inferno, so 3% lifesteal is actaully like 0.6%. so like you'd have to be hitting for about 200k+ per hit to get as much Life on Hit as I have now (1685 duel wielding on my monk).
Edit: didn't see roobsa's post. Derp
Life on hit is a great stat for barbs. Frenzy has an 80% modifier, meaning 1000 loh comes out to 800. Cleave has 60% but hits more targets and I think bash has 100% (but frenzy attacks faster/is better generally).
