Since 1.0.4 patch released, the Double Whirlwind skill build is the most popular choice for Barbarian in Diablo III. Due to the high efficiency that most of player depends on this build to upgrade and farming gold. However, innovation would bring different things in the dark world. Today, we would like to introduce the different Barbarian Skill Build with you.
Primary Output damage: Weapon Throw + Dread Bomb
I set the unpopular Weapon Throw as the primary output skill. The interesting is that the rune of Dread Bomb would expend all remaining fury to throw a corpse and create extra 3% weapon damage within 12 yards. You would notice that the fury ball fluctuated wildly. So, the critical hit affects the recovery of fury. This build focus on the AOE damage, it is better for Barbarian farming in the ACT1 misery field.
Necessary Assistance Skill:
No escape can increase the damage of Weapon Throw by 10% and it has a chance to return 14 fury. As you can see, the choice of Into the Fray can generate 15 additional fury. Considering the Weapon Throw would consume all fury, we should ensure the enough fury recovery. About the offensive, there are dread bomb and revenge steal life as well as Crushing Advance can redirect 35% melee and ranged damage.
In this skill build, fury decides your output damage! If you release throw weapon when full of fury, the damage you release is high. In addition, the critical hits would influent the fury recovery. As long as you ensure 70% - 90% critical hit chance that you can guarantee to keep full fury. If you are interested, you can have a try!
