Helltooth Lag Fixes

The revamped Helltooth set is causing some lag issues and devs are working to fix it as soon as possible. A few hotfixes were already deployed, but they're going to optimize the set even further in the future. Read the blue post below.

However, there are still some unaddressed issues that are still affecting performance. We plan to make further optimizations in the near future that should help, but we want to be sure there isn't a loss of power as a result.

Reddit Q&A Recap

If you missed the Reddit Q&A with game developers, make sure to check our recap and summary post from yesterday. Quite a few interesting tidbits of information including which sets will be reworked in Patch 2.4 and more.


Barbarian Guides Thread

The badass Barbarian streamer Chainer has put together an incredible thread on our forums. It goes over some of the strongest Barbarian builds and needed items for different activities in Patch 2.3.


An incredible source of information for those looking to improve their Barbarian knowledge and optimize their builds!



Hey guys Chainer here from twitch.tv/chainerfails

If you have any questions or want to hang out stop by my live stream.

This is a list of items with proper stats that will be useful for the barb in one or more build variants.

If I missed any items or stat variants of items leave a post below and i'll try to update this thread.

(Note: secondary resists of physical and lightning are good on items that don't use all res for grift progression. Generally 2+ pieces of physical and 2 pieces of lightning are good stats to aim for)


Kanai's Legendary Roll Sample

MeatHeadMikhail has made a video showcasing the RNG from Kanai's Cube ability to transform a Rare item into a Legendary over 25 upgrades. An interesting watch for those who wonder how many Death's Breaths it might take them to get a specific item with that feature of the Cube. Check it out
