    It really depends on the way you built up the enhancements in your trees but it can be a result of the lost capstone/ TOD set not giving +2 STR plus your build.

    Power attack and power rage are now spread across the trees so make sure to take them.

    Everything seems pretty much as before in the DPS section of my barb ( a bit better ).

    i'm in the same boat as the op, less base damage, less powerfull crits

    the entire purpose of barbarians seem to be lost on the dev's.
    with the lose of the heavy hits wich was the best part of the class, it feels like i'm better of tr-ing into some evasion/kensai build and get as many hits in instead of a few slow but heavy ones

    You prolly missed a few enhancements along the way. Nothing changed so you just took the wrong ones instead of the ones you had before.
    With new random generated loot out there you should deal much more damage than before.

    Default missed

    i'm afraid not, i had a simular discussion with some one on lamania, i took every dps related enhancement, still no luck, reset them several times, still no luck, reset them and took the forums guy exact enhancements, you guessed it, still no luck, something is horribly wrong here.

    I have been sleepwalking through EH and managed a few solo EE's on this toon, now the dps is so low, that i now have stopped playing it.

    *and yes, i have taken every str, every power attack, every power rage, etc enhancement*
    by the time i was done on the last lam build, resetting it cost 800k+ plat, (atleast the dev's have put pilles of regenerating money in in the dojo)
    i'm still missing damage compaired to the old situation (pre U19)
    I did not take wrong enhancements

    I also have a barbarian that I loved before the update.
    Update 19 really nerfed him. Used to see numbers like 9K or 6K, criting with adrenaline.
    Now i can only dream about these numbers.
    I am missing +2 str from CAP, +2 str and +2 damage from TOD set and I am certain there are certain changes that I can specify right now.
    Also multi-classing is kind of a hard or an impossible decision. No barb would sacrifice death frenzy which is "wisely" placed on lvl 18... can't through away 6d4 damage...
    Why?
    The barbarian enchancement trees don't even have strength as a choice...
    From all the overpowered builds like arcane archers, ridiculously overpowered monk/ranger/rogue or whatever combos, they decided to nerf barbarians?
    The only thing that barbarians can do well is hit and deal tons of damage. If you take that away you can as well abolish barbarians, remove them completely.
    Why should anyone keep playing barbarians? Yes they are fun but nobody likes being dead weight to a party.
    Especially with bard, fighter builds reaching 90 strength and monks dealing 5000 damage / sec to immobilized enemies (and we all know how hard it is form monks to immobilize mobs)

    This is becoming a different game than the one I started playing.
    Robin hood and Chuck Norris call the shots....

    Just a thought have you ran up the numbers for what you should be swinging for on a regular hit and seeing if your crits are in the right range? I don't have a barb right now to test this on myself but I wonder if some of the crit multi's are bugged and not applying from what you are saying op.
