If you’re playing Diablo 4 as Barbarian with a focus on Whirlwind, you can make that special ability even stronger with one simple trick—getting the Aspect of the Dire Whirlwind. This Legendary aspect can make your Barbarian a force to be reckoned with even though you might have to go to hell and back to retrieve it (pun intended?).
In case you’re struggling to get this offensive aspect on your own, we give you the guide on where to find the Aspect of the Dire Whirlwind in Diablo 4 with all the information you need. Let’s dive in!
Where to Find the Aspect of the Dire Whirlwind in Diablo 4
To get the Aspect of the Dire Whirlwind in Diablo 4, you will have to take your Barbarian to the Garan Hold dungeon in Scosglen. This is the area that you can get to rather early on, but make sure not to underestimate the enemies here, especially in the Garan Hold dungeon which has level 26 enemies and the boss Spiritcaller of Flames. When you complete the dungeon the first time, you will receive the Aspect of the Dire Whirlwind as a reward.
You can also get this and other Legendary aspects by extracting them from Legendary items that drop randomly as loot from different World Events or World Bosses. Just talk to an Occultist in a major settlement like Kyovashad, and keep in mind that you will lose your Legendary item in the process.
What Is the Aspect of the Dire Whirlwind in Diablo 4?
If you’re new to Diablo games, you might be confused by all this talk of different aspects, so let’s clarify a couple of things. You can think of aspects as passive skills that you can apply to your weapons or equipment and benefit from some neat perks.
The Aspect of the Dire Whirlwind is an offensive Legendary aspect that is specific to the Barbarian class. It increases the critical strike chance of the Whirlwind skill by 3-8% for every second channeled (up to 9-24%). You can imbue the following items with this aspect:
- One-handed weapons
- Two-handed weapons
