I have my Human dual-khopesh wielding 12/1 Barbarian/Fighter ready to take his 14th level. Is there a reason to go any more barbarian? If the compendium is right, I can take ICRII at Lvl 12. I'm thinking of going 12/2/2 Barb/Rang/Fig for this level cap, and finishing out 12/6/2 for my lvl 20. Reasons: Tempest, Wands (I went through 500 CSW pots yesterday - no joke).

Suggestions?

They re-fixed Crit Rage and set it back to its previous minimum level I believe, which would be 11 and 14.

You get Barb crit rage II at level 14 :) so up to you.

So the compendium is wrong?! But Turbine is perfect...

It was just changed in the latest patch. Go for Crit II as DPS is what we do :)

Right. So does the extra crit range equal more dps than Tempest attack speed? Especially since I'll be wielding a lightning II...more hits = more chances to proc.

Let's go math geeks (ok, fine - geniuses). Anyone got the calc on what is the better dps: one more point of ICR or Tempest Alacrity?

For straight DPS Crit rage II is better when the crit multiplier is higher and the crit range is low.

rapiers and greatswords do better with tempest.
khopeshes pretty much break even.
axes and picks do better with crit rage II.
weapons with low crit range and multiplier (maces) do better with tempest
