The Barbarian Class in Diablo Immortal is considered a well-balanced class that can wield melee weapons, both in their main and off-hand, all the while being able to take out vicious beasts without having to put in much effort. 

They are a “nomadic warrior” who will use both their wit and physical strength to take out any enemies in sight, whether it is used as a PvE class or a PvP class. With their experienced skills, they can hone their melee weapons, charge forward and take out evil without exhausting themselves.

Best Weapons For Barbarian Build

When mentioning options, players will be able to choose a main-hand weapon and an off-hand weapon, which they can hold both and use to pierce and slash their way through the enemies. I’ve listed two solid options below that players can go with!

The Tempest

The Tempest Weapon
Rank Weapon Slot Damage Power Stat Boost
18 Main Hand 1190 13606
  • +76 Strength
  • +102 Fortitude

Starting with ‘The Tempest’ as the player’s main-hand weapon, it’s a Whirlwind-focused item that wreaks havoc among enemies. At rank 18, it boasts 1190 damage and bolsters Vitality, Strength, and Fortitude by 152 each, making it a cornerstone of my Barbarian Build.

Its magic increases damage against ‘Full-life’ enemies by 15% and grants additional bonuses of 18 Strength, 15 Vitality, and 20 Willpower in Diablo Immortal. Based on my gameplay experience, The ‘Stormbringer Inscription’ enhances Whirlwind radius but reduces movement speed as a side effect.

As a bonus, it will provide 13 Vitality, 15 Fortitude, and 19 Willpower.

Armor For Barbarian Build

As far as the Armor in Diablo Immortal is concerned, many armor pieces include dedicated shoulder, chest, hand, and even finger pieces. This asserts ultimate protection for the player in Diablo Immortal, being able to guard them throughout their battles and when they are busy taking out enemies. 

Following are the Armor Pieces I’ve listed below for the build:

Shoulder Piece

Additionally, it boosts Whirlwind damage to opponents by 10%, ensuring that players can secure victory without risking their health. In my experience, this shoulder piece provides ample protection until the end of battles.

Lightning Core 

For its gem piece, the Ydama’s Cyclone will hone the Lightning Core, a 3-star gem, and will grant the player 55% of the base attributes.

There will also be a 10% chance that players can call down chain lightning on enemies, inflicting 80% damage output as bonus damage.

Leg Piece

The next item to discuss is the leg piece, adorned around the player’s legs. For this piece, players will hone the Determination armor piece, which will offer the player the ability to reduce their intaken damage by 9%.

As its bonuses, the Determination will offer up 13 strengths, 18 Vitality, and 16 Willpower, making the player even stronger in battle, allowing them to take out enemies with much ease.

I was surprised to know that this skill can be charged up for its inscription to deal increased damage to enemies. 

Trickshot Gem 

Diablo Immortal players will go for the Trickshot gem, which will consistently allow the player to use 16.50% less energy and intake 3% less damage from enemies that target their attacks at them.

It grants a bonus of 24 Strength, 40 Willpower, 24 Vitality, and 40 Fortitude. At rank 5, its damage output is 174, and its power stands at 4119. 

Its main aim is to essentially provide a 10% increase to their overall base damage output being dealt with the enemies so that they can take them out with ultimate willpower.This is the most recommended piece for this build.

If the player wants to protect their waist, they better put on the Cunning Girdle of Terror, which enhances the player’s Vitality, Fortitude, and WIllpower by 37, 27, and 40, respectively. With its life being 1745, its power is at 4045 at rank 5, making it pretty damn viable in combat and murdering enemies.

Skills For Barbarian Build

Now, there are going to be four main skills I’m going to mention that players can choose to min-max their build. These skills will provide both buffs, not only defensive but also attack speeds and offensive buffs. In my opinion, these skills allow players to dominate their enemies by taking them out. 

Wrath of The Berserker 

Skill Type Buff
Cooldown 30 Seconds
Effect ATK & Movement Speed buffed by 50% for 6.5 seconds

Kicking things off with the first skill, players will be able to cast this down, which will cause them to enter into a stage of “Berserker rage,” which will enhance their overall attack speed by 50%. With that, their movement speed will also be buffed up by 20% for 3 seconds. 

From the headpiece, players will also receive the ability to reflect and negate any debuffs that will have normally caused the player to lose possession of their Barbarian character

Furious Charge 

Skill Type Cooldown Damage Max Charges
Dash & Damage 9 Seconds 9216 3

The next skill I would like to discuss is the Furious Charge. Boost your power in Diablo Immortal with Furious Charge, granting swift movement, severe knockback, and 9216 damage to enemies. You have 3 charges, each available every 3 seconds in combat. Empowered Charge Inscription can extend its range and increase damage to a deadly 15457.

Undying Rage 

Skill Type Buff
Cooldown 30 Seconds
Effect Heals you for 30% of the damage taken and prevents death for 5.7 seconds

Undying Rage turns any Barbarian main into an arena beast. It grants invincibility for 5.7 seconds and heals the player for 30% of the damage they take. The skill activates whenever the player suffers severe damage, preventing immediate death.


Skill Type Cooldown Damage
Damage 0.5 Seconds 2884 

Another important skill is going to be the Whirlwind which will essentially summon out a tornado that will be so strong that it will continuously head over to obliterate enemies in its way, dealing a total of 2884 damage. On the other hand, it does require a bit of energy to cast forth the skill as is expected. 

Best Attributes for Barbarian Build 

In Diablo Immortal, your Barbarian Build relies on five key attributes: Strength for damage, Vitality for Life Stat, and Fortitude for Armor and Armor Penetration. Based on my gameplay experience, you can ignore Willpower and Intelligence, as they provide minimal benefits.

Gear determines attribute scores. Check inventory stats, but note that low-level gear offers limited bonuses. Opt for magic items for significant attribute improvements, including Legendary Gear that boosts the three crucial attributes.

Best Paragon Skills for Barbarian Build

At level 60 in Diablo Immortal, unlock Paragon Skills for your Barbarian Build. Each level grants one Paragon point to spend on specific skills. Prioritize the Vanquisher Class for Barbarian Build, emphasizing the Zeal node followed by the Wrath node for increased potency and a formidable frontline tank.

Allocate some Paragon points to upgrade the health node for added survivability. Activate your chosen Paragon Tree, or opt for Treasure Hunter for XP boosts. For PvP, invest in the Gladiator tree to strengthen your Barbarian Build.

With that, I will finish off with the Diablo Immortal Barbarian Build, let us know what you think!
