Over the past few months I've noticed an increased need for
gamegold and the need to gamble. So, what do you do? Well
gamegold allows you to gamble pretty neat items or you can
see the gold at a ratio of 1:1fg (Low, but when you see this
build in action, the time it takes to get the gold will make
your jaw drop).

This guide is a 100% perfect build. If you follow it I guarentee
you will get more gold from one body then you ever though possible.
So, without further ado, i present you with:

The Ultimate Goldfind Barb
(With Sweet Ass Pics!)

Contents:
  • Section 1: Skills
  • Section 2: Stats
  • Section 3: Gear
  • Section 4: How to play
  • Section 5: Tips
  • Section 6: Credits


Section 1 : The Skills

The skills are one of the most important things to the goldfinder. They will almost double your gold income. The order you do this in
is not very dependant on anything, but still, follow it for maximum
payout.

I don't expect anyone to actually try and level there barb. If you
read this before you make the barb, good. If you make this build
you WILL not be able to kill ANYTHING!. So, once you have 65+ skill
points ready to be spent, get to work.

First 4 points will be spent in the prereqs.
Howl, Find Potion, Iron Skin and Increased Stamina.

Max (No order since you have the +65 Points ready)
Shout, Battle orders and Find Item.

Then 1 into Battle Command.

Next max Natural Resistances then finish off with
Increased speed.

Now, the explinanations.
Shout, Battle Orders and Battle command server 2 very good
purposes. 1 is to Give yourself enough life and defense to
survive, without that, well, your dead. It's actual main purpose
is to give life and defense to your merc. After all, that is who
does the killing.

Natural Resistances: Should be obvious. High Res = Less Damage.
You will have ZERO gear the gives res, so these come in very
handy.

Increased Speed. I've heard many people say Iron Skin. WRONG. Why?
Well skin helps, by like .3485739853 precent. You will be doing
nightmare travincal runs (explaind later). It's nightmare. You have
4k+ Life, your merc will be target, and you will never go under 3000
life. The IS is godly after 5-10 points. It actually (and yes, I have
calculated this) speed up your run time by 12-15 seconds.


Section 2: Stats


So, you got stats to spend?
So?
No one cares.

Str: 103
Dex: 30
Vit: Rest
Erg: Base

None of your items give + to atts. So, 103 is required for the Crown of Thieves
and 3- Dex is required for the +3 Bo Sticks. Simple.

At 92 (Because I craft with him too) I bo and have 4.1k Life. No
torch, no anni, ZERO + Vit Items and NO + Skill items.

Very Simple.


Section 3: Gear


The gear is the pride of the Barb. It is what make the barb, well,
the godliest goldfinder out there. And, if you follow this build
to the "t" then you will also have a barb that can not be surpased
(and I say that because even if someone else makes a copy, they will
both be equal).

The gear is set in stone. Changeing it changes the Goldfinder.
The gear is intended for PURE, 100% Goldfind.

Helmet: 100% Goldfind Crown of Thieves, socketed with a Lem Rune = 150% GF
Weapon 1: A 6socketed Crystal Sword with 6Lem Runes in each. = 450%Gf
Weapon 2: A 6socketed Crystal Sword with 6Lem Runes in each. = 450%Gf
Armor: Wealth (Lem + Ko + Tir) Light Plate = 300%Gf
Gloves: Chance Guard Chain Gloves = 200%Gf
Boots: Rare Greaves = 80%Gf
Belt: Rare or Goldwrap = 80%Gf
Ring 1: Dwarf Star = 100%Gf
Ring 2: Dwarf Star = 100%Gf
Ammy: Rare/Magic = 80%Gf
Inventory:
Gheed's Fortune Grand Charm (160/xx/15) = 160%Gf
x9 Grand Charms of Greed = 360%Gf
x10 Small Charms of Greed = 100%Gf

Mercenary (It is important you don't get a holy freeze merc).

Helmet: 100% Goldfind Crown of Thieves, socketed with a Lem Rune = 150%Gf
Armor: Wealth (Lem + Ko + Tir). Merc has higher Str. Type is your call.= 300%Gf
Weapon: Bonehew Ogre Axe with x2 Lem Runes = 150%Gf
^Bonehew prevents monster heal and give merc high damage.

Your total Goldfind is am amazing 3,210.


Section 4: How to play

You will be doing Nightmare travincal runs.
Why? Well, hell takes longer, is harder, and you get the same
results.

For hell you will need a BOTD warpike for your merc, a Chains and
a vamp gaze so the bitch won't die. You will also need to max iron
skin. So, you loose speed and 600%Gf. Runs take longer, and you
get less gold.

Don't believe me? Check the pics.


So. Join a nm game. Switch to your BO Sticks. Yell. Switch.
Run to the council. Go past them and down to the durance of
hate. Why? Well, sometimes your bitch lags behind and if you go
straight down and come backl up, he is there ready to murder.
So, everyone is dead. You make 150,000 Gold. Now what? This is where
you "yell" at the dead bodies. Find item can get you up to 2 Times
the amount of gold. At lv 20 you will be getting just as much gold
as if you killed them all over again. It's the same as doing to runs.

Not much else to say. With 3.21k goldfind you will be realing in the
gold. Sell it or gamble.


Section 5: Tips

If your a big gamble then do this. Clear you inventory after you
collect max gold. Make sure you leave your gheed in, it reduces
the vendors prices by 15%. Then grab your edge runeword out of the
stash and go gamble. Edge??? It's a runeword in a 3 socket missile
weapon. Tir + Tal Amm. Point? 15% Price reduction. You may be\
thinking big deal.

Cost of a Amulet to gamble: 63,000.
Cost at 30% Price Reduction: 43,000.
Savings: 20,000.
Might not seem like alot but buy 2 ammys at regular price.
That comes to 126,000. You can get about 3 for the same price
when you get the 30% off. Hardcore gamblers will like this, others
may find it pointless. Oh well. I think it helps alot.


Section 6: Credits

No to be an ass, but this is a Goldfinder, not an Mf'er.
I'm not looking for drops, i'm looking to max gold within 8-10 runs.

It's a good build, it doesn't suit everyone.

Typical of pure gold find barb, very well done on presentation. and explanations.

Note: important factor: Your GC's should be Warcries Skillers with 40% extra Gold Find, that way there will be better for your amount of gold you find during your runs because your Find Item % will be greater, even after diminishing returns.

but great work.

Agreed about the WC charms. But to find perfect 40Gf and Skillers is hard.
