Budget D2R Frenzy Barbarian Skill Tree

Warcry Skills:

This is a pretty standard setup for frenzy barb with the only difference between a budget frenzy barb and top tier gear is that typically you'll see a lot of points put into Taunt because Taunt is a damaged synergy for frenzy. 

Howl - 1

Shout - 1

Battle Orders - Max

Battle Command - 1

Combat Masteries Skills:

A budget build usually with a lot of plus skill gear, you'll only put one or point for an end game setup, but getting that additional 54 to all resistance, but do not put more than 10 if you're going to invest substantial points is worth it.

Increased Stamina - 1

Increased Speed - 1

Iron Skin - 1

Natural Resistance - 10

Axe Mastery - Max

Combat Skills:

Berserk is a very important skill to talk about because it is magic damage, it's great for physical immune monsters, so you definitely with practically any barbarian setup you want to have at least one point into Berserk. Put one into Double Swing and additional points because it is a synergy for frenzy and then if you had more skills like your higher level, not trying to simulate level 84, once the double swing is maxed, typically you'll put more points at a Taunt because it is a synergy or frenzy.

Bash - 1

Stun - 1

Concentrate - 1

Berserk - 1

Double Swing - 14

Budget D2R Frenzy Barbarian Gear & Equipment

Check out the gear recommended by Dbrunski125.

D2R budget melee build

- Oath: Oath is a relatively cheap D2R runeword, so shale pull Mal and Lum with the indestructible mod tons of ed enhanced damage to demons, it's a great weapon, with lots of increased attack speed as well, suits the frenzy barbarian. It is somewhat challenging to get a four open socket Berserker Axe, but there are definitely other axes that you can use, that are a little bit easier to get for open sockets like the Cryptic Sword. Putting Shael, Pul, Mal, and Lum, leave this runeword works in swords and axes and maces, so it definitely works in axes and swords. But you're definitely not restricted to using something like a Berserker axe.

- Guillaume's Face: A winged helm with faster hit recovery, the chance of crushing blow, enhanced defense, plus strength, etc.

- Treachery: Great body armor with increased attack speed, faster hit recovery, and the chance to cast fade when struck and venom on striking, so that's a pretty powerful additional stat to the barbarian.

- Trang-Oul's Girth: A troll belt for Cannot Be Frozen. 

Angelic Halo: You can get plus 1 120 to attack rating based on character level, very very for a melee character.

- String of Ears: you could go Raven Frost and maybe String of Ears, with great defense and life leech, but with that setup, you wouldn't have mana leech.

- Gloves: Laying of Hands

- Boots: Gore Rider
