The Barbarian is a typical adventurer - he jumps in the middle of the fight, hacking and slashing everything and everyone who dares to come close to him. While playing the Barbarian, you will constantly balance between life and death, because you will have to fight in close combat and that means that you will be constantly attacked. Do not worry, however, as Barbarians (like Monks and Crusaders) receive 30% less damage than Wizards, Witch Doctors and Demon Hunters.

This build is focused on using Whirlwind and puts a lot of emphasis on mobility. Using Whirlwind, you will be able to deal AoE damage and move through crowds of enemies freely. To make the build work properly, you will need the Wrath of the Wastes set (it will enhance the effect of Whirlwind). Moreover, you will need two weapons from the Bul-Kathos's Oath set. Wear the Bastions of Will set on your fingers. You can choose the amulet by yourself, but it is recommended that you wear one with a bonus to physical damage. Lastly, you should have Chilanik's Chain and Lacuni Prowlers.

Thanks to the Insanity rune, you will also increase your damage by 50%.
