  1. A o E D a m a g e & S u p p o r t B a r b a r i a n G u i d e Written by: vVv Paradise Why use this build? When thinking of great Barbarians in Diablo 2 history, Frenzy and Whirlwind are staple skills of the class. This guide forsakes both of those abilities and heads in an entirely different direction. This is a Barbarian build that focuses on both survivablity and AoE damage. Your Barb will also be supporting your friends with extra health and by reducing the damage that they are taking. This is not a build to be used for single player. Interested in trying out a new way of playing? Read on! IMPORTANT: You will want to turn "Elective Mode" on in order to use this build. Elective mode allows you to use any skill in any of your slots. To turn on Elective Mode, enter the options menu and select "Gameplay." The option for Elective Mode will be the last option in the Interface column. Turn this on and you're ready to start your new Barbarian build! Make sure to turn on Elective Mode! The Build: Primary Skill: Cleave Secondary Skill: War Cry #1 Skill: Leap #2 Skill: Revenge #3 Skill: Ground Stomp #4 Skill: Ignore Pain Full build with runes and passive skills. Why these? Full explanation below! Primary Skill: Cleave (Unlocked at level 3) Rune of choice: Rupture (Unlocked at level 9) Cleave will be your main source of damage against mobs. Instead of the single target/high attack speed focus of the Frenzy skill, Cleave will allow you to hit multiple enemies at once. Using the Rupture rune, the damage from Cleave will be multiplied. As enemies start to die, corpses will explode. These monster bombs deal tons of extra damage to all surrounding creatures. In conjunction with the rest of the build that we will be using, this skill will give us the highest possible constant DPS. Huge AoE damage due to mob dynamite from the Rupture rune. Available to you starting at level 9! Secondary Skill: War Cry (Unlocked at level 28), for lower levels use Threatening Shout Rune of choice: Invigorate (Unlocked at level 41) War Cry increases the armor of everyone in your party and will help you survive harder hitting enemies. Once you have earned the Invigorate rune, this skill becomes even more useful. Having 10% extra life before fighting a pack of rare monsters can save your life! Use this skill once every 30 seconds to keep the buff active on your team. Still too low of a level to use War Cry? Use Threatening Shout instead! While it isn't as big of a help, mobs hitting a tad bit softer can still help out just the same! Shout! Shout! Let it all out! This is a skill you can't do without! #1 Skill: Leap (Unlocked at level 8) Rune of choice: Call of Arreat (Unlocked at level 44), for lower levels use Launch (Unlocked at level 21) This is the way you will be initiating each pack of enemies that you come into contact with. Leap allows your Barbarian to jump right into the thick of things and slow all mobs arround you. This becomes even more useful with the Call of Arreat rune. Once you hit level 44, your Leap becomes a vacuum. Leaping will pull all enemy mobs towards your Barb. By stacking the enemies on top of each other, you are greatly amplifying the power of your Cleave with Rupture rune combo. Leap into combat and then Cleave until dead. Pretty simple so far, right? #2 Skill: Revenge (Unlocked at level 13) Rune of choice: Vengeance is Mine (Unlocked at level 19) After jumping into the middle of a group of minions, you're definitely going to take some damage. Using the Revenge skill will help to heal some of that damage while also putting a hurt onto the mobs around you. The Vengeance is Mine rune will increase your life regen and keep your fury meter full. Spam your #2 skill each time it comes up and you'll see enemies dropping while your life bar stays topped off. Revenge hits hard and gives much needed health... two things that are quite important in later difficulties. #3 Skill: Ground Stomp (Unlocked at level 4) Rune of choice: Wrenching Smash (Unlocked at level 18) This skill will be used to stun enemies and keep them close to you. Just like the Leap/Call of Arreat combo, the Wrenching Smash rune will vacuum enemies toward your Barbarian. With these mobs stacked on top of each other you will be able to do overwhelming damage with Cleave/Rupture. How exactly does stomping on the ground pull things towards you? #4 Skill: Ignore Pain (Unlocked at level 22) Rune of choice: Mob Rule (Unlocked at level 43), for lower levels use Iron Hide (level 31) or Ignorance is Bliss (level 36) When the damage becomes a bit too much to bear, pop your #4 skill and you'll have a moment to breath. This skill cuts enemy damage by over half for a short duration. This effect will transfer to your entire team after activating the Mob Rule rune. This move is a must have! There is no better way to save your friends from certain death when a difficult pack of elites show up. Use as needed to stay alive! Ignore your pain... deal the damage out instead. Passive Skill #1: Ruthless (Unlocked at level 10) The first passive is a bit self explanatory. By upping your chance to critically hit a minion and additionally upping the damage output of these crits, your damage goes up by a ton! Add this passive to your Cleave/Rupture combo and vacuum skills, this really puts out a ton of damage to large groups of demons. 50% extra damage on crits + exploding corpses = dead demons. Passive Skill #2: Berserker Rage (level 20) With the choice of skills for this build, you will never use any of your fury. On top of this, the Vengeance is Mine rune on Revenge will generate more fury for you each time that you use it. This ensures always keeping a full meter. Berserker Rage will take advantage of this fact and continue to up the damage of your Cleave. So much fury and nothing to do with it! Passive Skill #3: Bloodthirst (level 24) The final passive to finish off the build is a 3% life bonus back on all damage that you deal. With our current setup, damage output is through the roof. This extra life back will keep you alive while Cleaving away at endless hordes of ghouls and ghosts. Important passive for staying alive. Three percent might not sound like a lot, but it's more useful than it sounds. Skill use/order: Buff team using War Cry. Use Leap to jump into a pack of demons and pull them together. Cleave enemies. Use Ground Stomp to stun enemies and pull them into you. Each time Revenge comes up... use it! Pop your Ignore Pain if someone is low on life and continue the fight. Clean up enemies, repeat, win! Final Thoughts: This build has worked wonders for me so far, although I have not made it to Inferno yet. As that this is a very specific build focused around playing with four people and supporting your entire team, this might not work for the highest difficulty. After writing this guide, I'd love to hear your adventures using this build. Please post feedback here in this thread! Are there any skills/passives you would change? Success stories/stories of failures with this build. General questions about the guide.
