D2R Ladder 2.4 Throw Barbarian Class Guide: How To Build A Barb In Diablo 2 Resurrected

Gear for Barbarian

This same game setup has a Lacerator Winged Axe in the main hand, Enigma for teleport charges, Warshrike in the offhand, Highlord’s for the amulet, a g face with the perfect topaz inside. You can gear your characters with at least 200% magic find, you could replace his perfect topaz with the 40 ED jewel instead if your heart desires. An alternative helm would be the new rune word wisdom, you lose the 33% crushing blow that g-face provides but you gain 33% pierce cannot be frozen and mana leech with mana after each kill. Don't forget about the 20 bonus to attack rating. Wisdom can also help free up slots elsewhere such as your belt or rings and it will be easier to hit that 105% fcr break point, go riders for the boots, you could also use war traps for added magic fine and that added physical damage. Raven frost ring cannot be frozen, Razortail for more pierce. For your second ring, try and get your hands on a dual each one that also has 10% faster cast rate on it. So you can hit that 105 break point laying of hands for the gloves. You can keep a demon limb in your cube so you can enchant yourself which adds more attack rating and a little bit of fire damage. On the swap, use two wizardspikes socketed with an east rune, switch to this setup while teleporting and using fine Diablo 2 items on bodies. These two daggers gives us a total of 100% faster gas rate, so finding yourself a 10% fcr ring with dual each will put you over that 105 break point.

- Vitality: 469

- Energy: 41

For stats, put enough in the strength index to use gear, you have three options, you can either dump everything into vitality with max bl, you'll be around 4.5k hp buff or if you feel safe enough you can dump everything into decks for more added damage and that attack rating boost. You could also do a 50/50 hybrid split, half of your points in the decks and the rest in the vipe.

Barbarian Merc

Used an act ii might mercenary and give him a pride thresher for the concentration aura that it provides. If you're not too keen about using the knack 2 merc with pride, try out an act one merc with the faith bow. The fanaticism that it provides can help your is frames and you won't need to rely on your frenzy skill as much.

Barbarian Skills

For skills, max out double throw and its synergy double swing, put one point into frenzy, basically melee with frenzy. then use double throw. Frenzy boosts your ias for 6 seconds which allow you to hit crazy double throw frames. Max out throw in mastery, this skill alone made throwing barbs a part of the new meta, it now replenishes quantity on critical strike and also has a high percent chance to not consume a charge. Don't forget to put one point into each passive below. Max out battle orders, one point in the battle command and all remaining points and define item. Try and get find item over 50%, so if you prefer to put points in the fight item before battle orders, you can. But you may want to stack points in the vitality over strength at least until you feel safe enough to farm.

How To Play D2R Barbarian Build In Ladder 2.4

Make sure to keep frenzy up at all times and then throw, teleport and use fine item with your switch-isted wizard spikes. This build is viable in cows, most of the new level 85 zones, chaos sanctuary and it can also defeat uber Diablo. But we'd recommend just farming travenkul over and over, it's one of the best areas to use item find.
