(Recap) Diablo III - The Barbarian

  • #1


    Basic Information

With the superhuman strength the Barbarian wields massive weapons that other humans could not even pick up. With their hardened exterior, they are able to withstand even the mightiest of blows. The angrier the Barbarian gets, the stronger he becomes, slaying all of those who have wrecked the noble name of his ancestors.

    does any1 know if the barbarian in the video of the skill showing just has no armor on or does barb dies so easily :/ ? even without his buffs his life was going down at a rather steady pace
  • #7
    the last tir barbar armor looks so heavy and insane they just hittet the right look for it to say it the easy way :P
  • #8
    Just looked at the Armor tier vid and they look awwsome but there is something about the female Barb that's not enticing. I know If I plan on making 2 barbs it wouldn't be 1 of each. That's my say in the matter.

    Any way enjoyed the barb in the beta but wont play him before WD and Monk. Still a fun class. less than 27 hours here in the states. In the mean time playing TL 2 beta.

    Does the "Fury Damage Bonus" Affix apply one time or to EVERY buff. I know the latter one is very unlikely, but if anyone gets a hold of some data that confirms or denies this please let me know here or via PM! Thank you!
