Diablo II Resurrected: Barbarian Class Guide

Diablo II Resurrected is so nicely balanced that it is effectively possible to overcome all the challenges the game throws at you with any class or build. Things, however, become a little more complicated once you increase the difficulty level, so knowing everything there is to know about the available classes becomes very important to plan builds that can make survive the Hell and Nightmare difficulties.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Barbarian class and the skills it can learn.


The Barbarian is the best class in Diablo II Resurrected when it comes to close-range fighting. With its amazing strength, this class has the ability to cleave through the hordes without breaking a sweat. This, however, doesn’t mean that the Barbarian isn’t good at supporting companions, as investing in the War Cries skill tree will unlock a variety of war cries that can be both the character and all allies.

Given how straightforward the Barbarian is, the class is a great pick for beginners learning the game.

Barbarian Skill Trees

The Barbarian Skill Trees include War Cries, which includes tons of excellent supportive abilities, Combat Masteries, which includes passive skills that improve both defense and offense, and Combat Skills, which includes powerful active combat abilities.
