Hello! Unfortunately this character was made in the PTR, and characters there can't be linked through battle.net. The video showcases all relevant gear used, however! :)

Why the shoulders of IK are mandatory ? There are also shoulders from the WW set?

It's the other way around, actually - the WW set shoulders are mandatory, as IK shoulders don't exist. :)

 

 

what about grifts with group?

 

Barbarians fit well into speed farming groups by taking advantage of the 6 piece Wrath of the Wastes set and the 2 set Bul Kathos weapons. Unfortunately, Barbarians are completely left out from high GR pushes, where they can't provide meaningful support or ranged DPS builds to compete - a situation that is hopefully resolved in the future patch 2.3.

Wouldn't Wind Shear work better for the WW rune as it generates fury per enemy struck?

While it will make Fury manangement trivial, it deprives you of a decent source of healing and is not elementally synergistic - I would not recommend it! smile.png

      Two legendary items are getting tweaks in an upcoming PTR build, while two other legendaries will remain as they are.
      Community Manager Nevalistis gave some feedback about four of the reworked legendaries. Apparently, The Barber and Faithful Memory are receiving some nerfs in a future PTR build, while the team is happy with how Hellcat’s Waistguard and Manald Heal turned out.
      Nevalistis
      It's been great to see a lot of earnest testing and honest feedback. Thanks, everyone, who's participated thus far! Based on your feedback, we have a few changes pending for some of these items that I wanted to share before they go live in the next PTR patch.

      The Barber
      Those of you who have been testing The Barber have seen this item jump from flat out not-functioning to most certainly over-performing. We suspect that the damage on this item is a tad high (particularly when using the Phantasm rune), so we're removing the damage bonus granted by the final explosion. There were also some pretty funky interactions occurring with Phantasm that caused some scaling issues, and we'll be correcting those.

      TLDR: Witch Doctors looking for massive AoE explosions from Spirit Barrage should still see effective results, but they won't be quite so over the top.

      Faithful Memory
      Faithful Memory is greatly benefiting from changes made to Greater Rifts and density. As many of you have noted, it's a wee bit on the powerful side. We're going to implement a cap on the number of stacks that can be gained and see how this performs. That leaves room for potential tweaking in the future if it's been adjusted too far.

      Hellcat's Waistguard
      We're pretty happy with how Hellcat's Waistguard is panning out in practice. We wanted to introduce an alternative play style rather than a new meta for Greater Rift pushing with the possibility that someone might discover a new top-tier combination or build with it, and we feel this item fulfills that goal.

      Manald Heal
      Manald Heal is in very much a similar place as Hellcat's Waistguard, though it admittedly needed a bump from its initial version on the PTR. Thanks to everyone who helped us test this item! The builds that are coming out of it actually perform pretty well, and we think there's still more room for player experimentation here.

      Overall, I want to reiterate that we don't intentionally design items to shift or change "the meta," nor are we looking to continue feeding power creep. The intention of many of these items (and likely those in the future) will be to provide options to play differently while remaining reasonably competitive with other existing options. (source) We remind you that the effects of these legendary items are currently as follows on the PTR:
      The Barber: Instead of dealing direct damage, your Spirit Barrage now accumulates on the target. When you stop channeling, it explodes dealing 225-250% of the accumulated damage to all enemies within 15 yards. Faithful Memory: Each enemy hit by Falling Sword increases the damage of Blessed Hammer by 50-60% for 10 seconds. Hellcat's Waistguard: Grenades have a chance to bounce 3-5 times, dealing an additional 50% damage on each bounce. This bonus is increased to 800% on the final bounce. Manald Heal: Enemies stunned with Paralysis also take 13,000-14,000% weapon damage as Lightning. Αn overview of Patch 2.4.3 can be found here.
