Barbarian Diablo 2 Resurrected

The Barbarian is one of the most brutal classes in Diablo 2 due to his wild and struggling nature. But thanks to that he is also familiar with his surroundings. Because of his shamanistic belief in the animal powers with whom he identifies, the Barbarian is sometimes associated with stories of lycanthropy.

As for the class specifications in Diablo II Barbarian is a melee character with both melee skills and weapons. He also has the ability to strengthen his allies with a Warcry before battle, create barbaric totems from slain demons and leap great distances. But the most powerful part of the Barbarian class is that it is able to dual-wield any weapon.

The skills are grouped into three categories: Combat Skills include abilities that you actively use during combat, Combat Masteries are permanent bonuses both offensive and defensive, Warcries are temporary buffs for the barbarian and the party and debuffs for enemies.

The Barbarian is a brutish melee class, additionally with Warcries, Masteries and multiple Combat Skills available, however, he may be very versatile and creative to play with.
