Diablo 3 Barbarian Leveling

I thought I would chronicle my experiences of leveling a hardcore Barbarian. First off I would like to state that hardcore is not that much different than the standard game. Its not difficult to play without dying as long as you change HOW you play. My first play through was a standard Demon Hunter who is now in Act 2 Inferno. I would die constantly… a single shot from anything could kill me. It wasn’t until after making an hardcore character that I understood how the game is meant to be played. A bit of tweaking on my Demon Hunter and now those very same mobs that would one shot me are no problem. I actually almost never die, and when I do its because of stupidity on my part. Best part is those minor changes were less than 500k on the AH, and a slight play style change. I would advise everyone to roll an hardcore character at least once, it can vastly change how you play.
Barbarian Solo Azmodan
Since I am chronicling what I learned as I played hardcore… chances are some sections will be much shorter than others. Act 1 of each difficulty I would imagine would be quite long in comparison to the others. Also feel free to comment on my build and any strategies that you are using. If there is a better way, I’ll gladly look into it.

I actually didn’t learn much here. I have a general understanding of both barb and hardcore play style. All the bosses were tank and spank. No issues. Most annoying bit was Azmodan since I couldn’t keep attacking while on the DoTs. Not that they really did much damage… I just didn’t want to chance it, just in case.
