Tips and hints

  1. The source of the Barbarian's power is Rage - the equivalent of mana or stamina from other games. Every time you use an ability, some Rage is used up - should it drop to zero, you won't be able to use abilities. Rage replenishes fully after every fight.
  2. Barbarian is a character meant for direct, melee combat. It's a great complement to tanks (i.e. Fighter or Paladin), since barbarians are able to deal lots of damage with Barbaric Blow. Apart from that, they can access some crowd-control skills - remember to use the Barbaric Yell, which decreases enemies' stats.
  3. Barbarian's unique passive skill is called Carnage - it makes you deal damage not only to the target, but to nearby enemies as well. Use it and try to attack bigger groups of enemies.
  4. If you want to try mixing it with another class, you should choose a class that has a lot of health and resilience, such as Paladin. The Barbarian is by default rather poor with these.
  5. Use light or medium armors. Heavy armors will significantly decrease the frequency of your attacks.
  6. The main Barbarian's attributes are Might and Constitution - invest most points here, even at the expense of Perception or Resolve. Because of that, the Dwarf or Aumaun are great races for the Barbarian.
