  • Abd al-Hazir Journal Entry: 0025



Lore:
In my journey to catalogue the various denizens, civilizations, and fauna of our world, I have traveled far and wide, but never before have I been struck with such dismay as when standing upon the ramparts of the ancient fortress of Bastion's Keep. I came to see firsthand the barbarians, those near-legendary, immense, relentless, dual-wielding furies of combat dwelling upon their sacred Mount Arreat.

Instead, I stand here looking at a mountain that has been torn asunder by some extraordinary force. The sight, I must confess, is incomprehensible. Yet what I see before me cannot be denied.

What truly happened here? Where are those majestic warriors of old? Though they were once misunderstood as simple, bloodthirsty invaders, the long and noble history of these proud people is now rightly acknowledged. And therein lies the greater tragedy here, for those of us familiar with the nobility of the barbarians remember too what they call their "vigil", the concept that lay at the very heart of their culture. The barbarians consider it their sworn duty to protect Mount Arreat and the mysterious object within. They believe that if they fail to uphold their duty to the great mount, or are not given a proper burial upon its slopes, they will be denied a true warrior's death, and their spirits shall roam the land without honor for all eternity.

If there are any barbarians left alive, they must truly be without hope. Perhaps this is the genesis of the rumors of monstrous things reported to resemble the barbarians in size and ferocity, but that are in reality nothing more than unreasoning, inhuman beasts. Could the destruction of not only their home but also their very beliefs have actually brought this magnificent race so low? - Abd al-Hazir



Resource System
The Barbarian uses the Fury system. A Barbarian's Fury orb will start out completely empty. Any damage the Barbarian does or takes generates Fury, which in turn can be used to cast Barbarian skills. There will be some skills that require no fury and some that actually generate fury, so the Barb can still attack at the beginning of the fight. If you stop fighting, after a short grace period, your fury will slowly recede. It is unknown how many skills can be used without Fury. Fury also has a set cap (cannot increase) but this may have changed.

I absolutely love the fact that there are weapon type passives. Now i can officially be an axe barb. Having that in mind feels much. Being able to use any weapon without that distinction gives no personality to the char I'm playing.
But i do think the axe passive needs a better name, axeassinator? :P

CD = Cool Down
as in, when you use certain abilities there is a "cool down" period in which you cannot use that same ability again for the duration
