The Whirlwind Barbarian build is a great option in Diablo 2 Resurrected. Like most barbarian builds, the Whirlwind Barbarian is heavily gear-dependent. Whirlwind is popular as it is one of the only barbarian abilities that deals area damage.
Barbarian in Diablo 2 Resurrected
In Diablo 2 Resurrected, the Barbarian’s natural support is very powerful. While Barbarians lack the sophistication of city dwellers, they have a keen sense of their environment.
Barbarian is considered an improvement on the warrior class in Diablo 1. Barbarian’s most innovative feature is the ability to use two weapons same time. With the “Double Swing” skill we can use two weapons for quick attacks. Combined with skill synergy, any barbarian has the potential to become a powerful warrior.
Statistics and Figures
As a melee expert, Barbarian should take care of his health and stock up on potions. If you enter an unfamiliar location, then you can use a jump skill to enter a safe place.
To improve his combat skills, Barbarian has an entire combat skill tree. All are Clvl 6 and below and are the only parts of all trees that have no prerequisites. All skill mastery is passive, so doesn’t require activation.
How To Build The Whirlwind Barbarian?
There are two warcries at maximum in this version. Although these are usually used for support, they also have some of the best skills in the final stages of the game. This is probably the only one in the game that can survive crowd damage without a shield.
Phase Sword is the ideal base for Grief Runeword, which has even lower power requirements than the Barbarian. Players need 185 Strength to obtain Steelrend Ogre Gauntlets. As with most Barbarian buildings, energy is functionally meaningless.
Whirlwind Barbarian is and will be a niche build as it has to focus on many different data. Some of the best runes and gear in the game help with Barbarian’s needs. Barbarian needs to have defense and attack. We need to make sure to get enough Blink enchantment until magic resistance reaches 75%.
Leveling With The Build
Anyone looking to fight the toughest bosses in the game needs all the tools at their disposal. Players who want to survive must decide which skills and attributes they need to focus on.
It’s tempting to get all 20 points in Whirlwind at once, but it’s a surefire way to become a glass cannon. Bosses, magic users, and ranged attackers will make this feel more like glass than cannon. Score approximately 5 points in Whirlwind, then 1 point in all other skills.
This will greatly improve the player’s survivability. And give the player a ton of skills, especially when they need to use Leap to get out of trouble. We need to max out Whirlwind and then take turns upgrading Shout, Battle Orders, Sword Mastery, Iron Skin, and Natural Resistance.
There’s a simple formula to make this very easy. Get 3 factors in toughness and also two points in vigor, then, after hitting the enchanting 186 in strength, however, 3 points in dexterity as well as 2 factors in Vitality until dexterity hits 136. After that, it’s vitality the rest of the method.
When it comes to gear, Barbarian has the advantage of Nature Resistance. But we still need the help of armor and d2r ladder items to get 75% resistance. Remember, natural resistances don’t apply to magic, so be sure to keep items that resist magic. Then after picking up some pro tips to help, hit the end and this build will slide down.
