23 Aug 2011 Forum Guidelines - Please Read Welcome to the Diablo III discussion forums! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss all aspects of Diablo III with your fellow players. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct before posting. Search The new search function at the top of the Diablo III community site is extremely robust. Please be sure to use it to look for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer before creating your forum topic. Making a new thread on an existing subject will likely result in your thread being deleted. If you continue to repost it you're likely to have your posting privileges suspended for spamming. Worst of all, you'll be making the other forum goers upset that you didn't take a minute to search before posting. Rating The new rating system can be used to promote positive discussion, and demote unhelpful posts, or even report posts that violate the forum code of conduct. By hovering over a post you'll be presented with a thumbs up, and a thumbs down icon. Clicking the 'thumbs down' icon you can choose from a few options. Dislike will rate the comment down. If enough people dislike a post it will be darkened, or with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of the violation. You can only rate each post once. Use it wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Guidelines In addition to the Forum Code of Conduct (, here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow to ensure these forums remain a constructive and friendly gathering place for the community. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, these cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked. The Diablo III forums are for discussion of topics directly related to Diablo III The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to Diablo III, or Blizzard are subject to deletion. Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Using the words Blizzard, Blue, or any community team members name in a thread topic to gather attention is frowned upon Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that. However, use of such words in the topic does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Note that threads discussing e.g. the Blizzard authenticator or Blizzard’s latest press release are allowed to have Blizzard in the title as it’s then relevant to the discussion. Posting "First" or IBTL constitutes as spamming You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL (in before the lock) is not helpful and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Posting TLDR or L2P constitutes as trolling Posting TLDR (Too Long, Didn’t Read) is saying you don’t care about a player’s post. Posting L2P (Learn to Play) mocks the player for their skill or experience level rather than provide constructive input on the post itself. Both are considered trolling and will lead to a suspension.Zhydaris1 23 Aug 2011

06 Apr New player in need of help Sup guys, can someone help me out? Im paragon level 250 barbarian with 1 piece missing from each of the following sets: Immortal kings, Raekor's, Earth, Blackthornes and Wastes. Ive been running very random and nooby build with random skills, mostly whirlwind and groundstomp/avalanche and items which support those skills. So my question is what set and build i should go for? Im looking for something pretty easy and fun to play and something that can get me to 50++ GR. My current best is 36. Thanks in advance :)Samey2 06 Apr
26 Mar Raekor 2 piece bugged or is't just me ? Hi. I'm playing a HOTA build with raekor set but it happens now and then especially against elites that the charges does not reset at all ? I found some old threads from 2016 with this issue but nothing after that, so my question is am i the only one with this issue or anyone else experienced it ? Maybe i do something wrong but then i can't figure it our because it works great then suddently stops resetting charges that leads to i'm standing there looking like a fool without possibility of damage. Thanks in advance Regards Jonas LillmanLillen0 26 Mar

07 Mar set specific dungeons i cannot complete my set dungeons no matter what i do. i kill things the second i leap on an enemy and im supposed to leap, ground stomp, and earthquake each elite. ive tried unequipping all my gear except my set and equipping the weakest weapon i have and still one shot everything. how are you supposed to complete these?Theraos0 07 Mar
07 Mar Desperate for items! Willing to pay as high as $300! I want the perfect gear for my barbarian. The build I am looking for is Raekor + HOTA! Can anyone help me please?!WMFGREEN1 07 Mar
07 Mar Another question about area damage. Does area damage apply to area damage effects and damage over second effects? Let's say that I have 100% area damage and I trigger EQ (Earthquake) and hit 5 enemies. Then I got really lucky and with only 20% chance of triggering my area damage i trigger i 4 times on 4 different enemies. Does this mean that the central one will take 5 times EQ damage as as I triggered it once and from all of the area damage around it? Also will it continuously do more damage becouse of each enemy in it because of that?godofthewar1 07 Mar
07 Mar What's next? Anyone willing to help? Hello all, I'm super new to Barbarian. This is the first time I've played one since vanilla D3 back in the time of inferno. I play on hardcore. I did manage to hit top 100 this weekend on stream with an 85 clear , but I'm not sure what to do next. Here's my gear currently . I'm not usually this far early usually this is about where I end so I just push despairs and do what I can but not really sure what would be my next best option. Here's what I see for options, let me know if I'm missing anything: 1: grind up gems to my current max possible of 86 or 87, 2: grind up bounty materials and start doing reforges of items like weapons looking for primals. 3: Grind t13 looking for ancient CoE, Unity, Travelors Pledge, and Compass rose. 4: Start grinding up despairs and get 80s I have all but jewerly as ancient mostly well optimized. What do you all think I should do next? I btw HATE the charge barb so I'll stick with IK for pushing even though I wont be able to go as high (though we do have an IK or two in the top 50 and one in the top 10 so it's not that bad apparently).Zanthyst1 07 Mar
06 Mar Leap quake speed version build Hello, havent seen any builds like this for leapquake style so for the ones of us out that that enjoy leap quake have at it. Its relatively easy to gear for and when you got all pieces running grifts at 65-70 can be done very fast as leap quake the only thing is the belt that the guide displays is wrong, for some reason the site wont let me add girdle of giants as a belt. 06 Mar
06 Mar Season 13 BEST Barbarian Builds: Push & Speed (+video) MAIN VIDEO: Season 13 is right behind the corner and i wanted to compile a solid video for the community, showcasing all best barb builds possible. I went through all of them during PTR and pushed to the maximum limits possible for my paragon and gear. Some builds are a blast from the past while some are completely new.

05 Mar New to Barb - Need some tips (R6-HOTA) Hi guys. Playing Season for the first time and so far, having a blast. :) I'm mostly playing as sup barb with 3 friends - works fine so far (able to clear gr 90 without any problems) Now to my problem: I also try to push some grifts solo as R6 Hota barb. Sadly I have problems going higher than grift 85. I either do to less damage on elites (they live to long imo, maybe i should always get 30-40 charge stacks rdy? Mostly aiming for 20 stacks atm) or I get destroyed by a big pull (I feel like there isnt that much self healing - always have to look for orbs. Could a experienced barb give me some tips ? A look on my gear would also be appreciated. Thanks in advanceZero0 05 Mar
05 Mar Leapquake Barb, can't seem to push past GR81 Recently started trying to push decent GRs and I can't seem to output enough dmg, not sure whether it's my gear and the fact I lack ancient/primals or whether it's a matter of rolling gear etc. Could really appreciate some really good assistance as I'm looking forward to breaking GR100 :pray: ThanksAdam5 05 Mar
05 Mar enchanting +10-11% reduced damage from elites on chest I have a Raekors heart chest that has 14% life roll on it, I have tried at least 15 times rerolling to the reduced damage from elites with no success. I am wondering if perhaps it is a display bug where I can't actually get it, or just bad RNG, or a rare stat to roll. Not sure if I should keep going or not as it costs 50 veiled crystals per shot...harmar39 05 Mar

25 Feb Might of the Earth set dungeon impossible Trying to do the set dungeon for MoE and the objective states "Use Leap, Ground Stomp, and THEN Earthquake in under 6 seconds on every Elite", but my set bonus automatically applies Earthquake whenever I use Leap, so I physically cannot do the dungeon.

12 Jan Make useful(Boulder Toss) with Earthquake Build Hello everyone As you know Girdle of Giants Belt has an effect which is increasing Earthquake damage %250 when you use Seismic Slam(Rumble). Blizzard please add to the belt ''Using Ancient Spear(Boulder Toss) will increase %250 EQ damage. Bring an alternative not extra damage. 6th MotE set bonus is increases damage of EQ,Avalance and Ancient Spear %5600 it writes like this and I think BoulderToss skill only goes well best with this set.If we cant use this feature with this set why did you put then to MotE set? I want to play Ancient Spear(BT) with this build. Now important part is here; I can wear Skular's Salvation Bracers (For BToss damage) on my barbarian without putting on Kanai Cube Because i must use Lut Socks Kanai Cube. Also i can choose Three Hundred Spear kanai cube instead of Furnace this is also ok too. Wearing Ring of Royal Grandeur is not important here. I must have these skills on my skill bar; 1-Leap (Must be Chosen to attack with EQ) 2-Threatening Shout (Must be chosen for %25 more damage also causes Extra EQ) 3-War Cry (Causes an extra EQ) 4-Berserker (Must be chosen for %50 more damage) 5-Earthquake Molten Fury (Must be chosen) 6-Seismic Slam Ok now you may say remove war cry skill and put Ancient Spear skill. However Seismic Slam(Rumble) must to spend all fury to reset cooldown of Leap.Therefore you can never use BoulderToss in that way because Boulder Toss needs Full Fury. You have to attack with Leap skill again within 1 or 2 seconds you cannot use these 2 skills together. But if you bring to the belt this feature that i talked about we can use Both EQ and BoulderToss Also Earthquake build can reach to more higher Greater Rift Tiers because Number 1 Tier is 121 with FuriousCharge but EQ was 111 now.Nightwolf0 12 Jan
12 Jan HoTa build damage problems I've got a problem with my damage and i can't seem to figure out what's wrong. I've been using the full HoTa build for a while now. But sometimes it occurs that my damage is really low, of what it should be (talking from 70b-ish to suddenly 3b-ish damage) without doing anything differently from what i usually do (hope it makes sense). Been trying to change sets for a few days, hoping it would fix itself, it didnt. But now i'm completly not seeing those high numbers anymore, just the low 3b crits. Do anyone have the same experience, and do any of you know what i do wrong or what's causing it? Thank you in advance <3Mizzel5 12 Jan

11 Dec Whirlwind Barbarian: ISTVAN's vs. BUL-KATHOS's (VIDEO) VIDEO: I had this video done during the PTR but totally forgot about it.

22 Nov GR80+, Need Help. Okay, so I've cleared GR82 but now my DPS is feeling like it needs a bit of a boost. Been running rifts and GR75 for upgrades but so far nothing, I've not re-rolled any of my gear is there anything I should re-roll? Is there a better way of getting upgrades, I upgrade ledgendaries in the cube but don't seem to have much luck their either. 22 Nov
18 Nov GR20 which build? Hi, I'm just starting out playing a barbarian. I have the four piece set of immortal kings from the seasons Headrigs Gift. It took me ages with the four piece to kill all the bosses at torment 4 with the icy veins HotA build here. However, I'm stumped with the GR20 solo because it's time based and I can't out put enough damage to do it in time. Is the case for this just to join groups and leech until I'm powerful enough or has anyone done the GR20 with a different build and the four IK set or is it something I'm doing wrong that is making things painfully slow. Thanksaindriu1 18 Nov
18 Nov Having difficult time refreshing Berserker Hello, I just recently achieved my IK set, and am currently using this build off of icy-veins: I'm currently running Greater rifts on T6. When berserker is up I can mow down mobs and elites no problem but if I lose my berserker status, I'm basically a sitting duck until it gets back off cooldown. I've heard that other people can maintain their berserker status all the time with the IK set, but I seem to not be able to do achieve this. Is there something I'm not doing correctly? Do I need more CDR? Am I not utilizing my skills correctly? Thanks!Poketree1 18 Nov

07 Nov Istvan’s WHIRLWIND GR100+ Barbarian Build (2.6.1) VIDEO GUIDE: GR98 clear: Even though Istvan's Paired Blades were untouched in 2.6.1, the rest of the WW setup was greatly buffed, so the basic build got automatically buffed as well. Istvan's variation of WW gained strength around a year ago but unfortunately i never had the time to create a proper guide for it, even though i played a significant role promoting this setup among barbs. Barb community is always very skeptical and conservative, even though some players actually played Lightning Istvan's, it was pretty hard to convince them to try multiplicative damage of Istvan's over multiplicative attack speed of Bul-Kathos. In the end the build took-off and had a great success, and it still tops the leaderboards. Istvan's, while being slower, provide solid single target damage as well as extra armor. With the recent buff to Bul-Kathos's, however, the mighty weapons might REGAIN their glory once again. I cleared GR98 with both variations and found literally no gap in firepower.Angry0 07 Nov
02 Nov WW Barb wants to reach GR80. What to change? Hello, Im a WW Barb and i have set myself a goal for my Barb, i want to reach GR80 Solo. I know this is not only depending on gear but also on my own skill and gameplay to avoid things. I just want to know what more i should change to push into 80's. Yesterday i managed GR65 solo, my damage is fine i just died a couple times (4). With paying some more attention i should be able to clear it faster without dieing. Current gear: Right now im first aiming to get all gear that is Ancient an Augment 50 on to get some more STR. I've added today 2x 50 Augment and later today i will complete my other 2x 50 Augment, so than i have 4x level 50 augment added. I should add on my head and chest Resistance but what is exactly more needed to reach higher GR? What im still looking for: - Ancient Shoulders + Pants Wastes - Better stats Ancient Bul-Kathos Warrior Blood Aiming 2700+ - More paragon Currently 624 -- Should i go for Vitality or STR? - Skull Grasp ring with better stats due to Crit Hit Damage. - Brawler into Nerves of Steel It is very hard to find a nice guide for Barb to push higher GR this season. Barbs are not that strong this season. I played in Season 5 and now i started again, season 11. Any advice, help, tips, information is welcome! Thanks alot!JMeijernl12 02 Nov
02 Nov Immortal King's WHIRLWIND GR95+ Build (2.6.1) Hello guys! VIDEO GUIDE: ---- --- ---- Back in the day we used to spin with IK set as well. It was never the meta, but a viable alternative. With the buffed IK set, Skull Grasp, and buffed Bul-Kathos's weapons it is much more viable than before. Still 3-4 GRs behind classic Wrath of the Wastes, but not that far away! You can clear GR95 with around p1000-1500 and even 100+ with high paragon (2000-2500+). If you don't have your Wastes set, IK provides a viable alternative and is very fast at speedfarming and low level gemups. You don't need CDR as well! --- GR95 CLEAR: 02 Nov
01 Nov WW CDR ? Hi, can anyone help me? I am playing Wastes barbarian and I kinda have a problem - Sometimes I get almost 100% uptime on Wrath of the Berserker and sometimes I don´t. So my question is: What is the optimal / ideal CDR for this build ? Would be nice if you could reply or give me a deeper look =)Fury3 01 Nov
01 Nov Bul-Kathos's WHIRLWIND V2.0 GR100+ WW Build (2.6.1) VIDEO GUIDE: ======== Refreshed build: ======== ======== Whirlwind got a decent buff in patch 2.6.1 and gained around +10 levels. Now it BLENDS EVEN BETTER! Wrath of the Wastes set got a buff, Skull Grasp got a boost and Bul-Kathos's mighty weapons got buffed too, now we can drop Weapon Master and spin with all offensive passives! As usual, easy to learn, but hard to master. ======== GR98 CLEAR: 01 Nov

27 Oct Immortal King's HotA GR100+ build (2.6.1) I know that people here enjoy writing lengthy esseys, but just in case you need a short version of the IK HOTA build, here we go: ------------- VIDEO GUIDE: ------------- Build: ------------- ------------- The old IK HOTA is actually back. Now with much more firepower and toughness! Very strong in density and for single target as well. My easiest GR100 clear so far for a barb! The build is actually even in GR105+ area and i almost cleared it with my p1500. GR100 CLEAR: 27 Oct
27 Oct Might of the Earth SEISMIC SLAM GR100+ (2.6.1) VIDEO GUIDE: ------- It looks like the evolition of classic LeapQuake has been found! ---------- ---------- ---------- An interesting setup that is in the shadows for NOW. In fact after some extensive tests i realized that this setup has more potential than the pure MOTE Earthquake build. For a few reasons. First of all we use fully buffed Seismic Slam attack buffed by Fury of the Vanished Peak as well as Bracer of Destruction. We are mostly stationary when casting SS and we can also use Endless Walk + COE instead of Focus+Restraint to do more damage. And at the same time we are still using Blade of The Tribes and Girdle of Giants, so we just lose some recovery and toughness + 50% elite damage but gain tremendous amount of SS damage instead, for both density and single target (where EQ sucks). I had terrible rifts all the time but crushed GR98 when i eventually got a good layout. The clear was much faster than my GR98 classic FireQuake clear, so assuming classic EQ cleared multiple 100s, this build will go even higher than that! --- GR98 Clear Demo: --- Also it is a rare situation where we can fully utilize two DPS skills from the 6pc bonus!Angry0 27 Oct
