Best Skill Build for Barbarians
There is no best skill build for Barbarians in Diablo 3 because there are so many ways to play the game and each type of gameplay calls for a different skill build. So, let’s break down those skill builds and take a closer look at what you can gain from each of them.
Best Skill Build for Barbarians in PvM
The standard builds designed for a nice balance between dealing damage, building fury and maintaining health. This is where all newcomers should start as you play through the story mode of Diablo III with your Barbarian for the first time.
This build is perfect for Barbarian tanks with powerful attacks like Cleave, Revenge, Leap Attack and Ignore Pain to mitigate damage. It’s pretty standard as far as durability and group usefulness goes.
Best Skill Build for Barbarians in PvP
In PvP with a Barbarian, you want to have skills that allow you to minimize kiting and maintain DPS on your enemies at all times. This calls for ranged attacks as well as multiple range closing attacks and stuns when possible. Your selection here will depend a lot on the runestones available to you.
Best Gold Making Builds for Barbarians
Making gold with a Barbarian in Diablo III is incredibly easy. You can take out multiple enemies very fast and if you can find the right spots with enough enemies to chain through, you’ll be able to maintain your DPS due to high Fury output for hours.
Best Leveling Builds for Barbarians
Barbarians are one of the best leveling classes in the game due to their survivability and AoE abilities. Multiple builds make this possible, but they are all equally effective.
Best Inferno Difficulty Builds for Barbarians
When you reach the end of the game and restart in Inferno mode, everything changes. You need to stay alive more than anything, but if your DPS drops off, the game won’t last long either. Careful selection of all skills as well as runestones is a must.
Creating Your Builds
Because so many details of the game remain hidden (or are changing), the best way to develop a build is to go into the skill calculator and experiment on your own. If you really want to develop the best possible attack strategy in the game, use this Diablo 3 Barbarian guide as your baseline.
