Some Advice for your Half-Orc Barbarian
Oh it's too late for that. I'm already well on my way towards achieving Axer status! :D

The AP cost is pretty steep and will likely bring you to an odd total. Those APs are better spent towards extending rage (or haste boost if part Fighter) either through CON or other enhancements.
For the max DPS ideal endgame gear setup, I'm wearing 4 sets:
* Greater Might of the Abishai
- Helm (Yellow Augment: GFL)
- Cloak (Green Augment: Exceptional CON +1)
- Boots (Green Augment: Good Luck +2)
* Greater Vulkoor's Might
- Epic Gloves of the Claw
- Epic Bracers of the Claw
* Ravager Set [Exceptional STR +2]
* Shintao Set [Healing Amplification 20%]
With this setup, you get even more STR with an even STR score, massive healing amplification (~156% if my math is right), and GFL combined with the cloak gives you a total of +50 HP. For armor, I'll be alternating between Marilith + Litany and Red Scale + Bloodstone, when appropriate. Goggles remain the perfect slot for wearing either a 45 HP GS item or Tharne's.
For tanking situations, I will wear a slightly different setup once I get my Frenzied Berserker ring.
