[Top 3] Diablo 3 Best Barbarian Builds

iablo 3 Best Barbarian Build
Barbarians like long walks in the mountains, and quick deaths of their enemies.

The Barbarian is a fast-paced powerhouse of a class.  They are plain and simple brawlers, fueled by Fury attacking hell’s demons with swing weapons and a rapid pace. Barbarians are able to cover a lot of ground, they are best played by getting into the thick of the fray.  

Barbarians are is able to clear out mobs easily. They are best played by attacking groups of enemies rather than trying to chase down a single kill.   All three of the builds are good for a single player or group play and are able to push the higher tiers as well as greater rifts.  

Now, let's calm down and stay still for a moment, while we look at the Barbarian builds.  Keep in mind that player's skill level and gear drops will affect performance, but it's nothing to go berserk over.
