Good ideas all around; I am glad to see that SOME people have some serious suggestions to improve the neglected Barbarian class.

I fully agree with the OP.
Barbs ARE underpowered, especially compared to those OP Witch Doctors...

So my suggestion would (at least!) be:
If a barb and a witch doc are playing in the same group, there should be a 50% chance that zombie dogs enter play-mode and return the weapons the barb throws.

Also, because barbs are so fat, they should keep bouncing for 120 seconds after a leap attack, killing everything they hit.

I also believe barbs should be able to dual wield tower shields while whirling so they start to hover like a helicopter at 500% movementspeed. And because they´re so fat, they should bounce off walls (killing everything they hit)

And because barbs are the weakest class of all, they should have an additional active skill called "summon da luv" which should summon a copy of Master Jay who gives free hugs to all barbs in the party.

LOL if the OP was even somewhat serious then I would suggest you playing in traffic for awhile during lunch time by a high school, because saying a barb is underpowered at all is making a statement that fits by defention a troll post

"with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response"

k thx

People kidding around doesn't make them trolls. The opening post was so obviously not serious. Lighten up.

1. Barbarian is the only class with Strength as a prime stat? so we should get twice as much. fair?

2. Barbarian (even females) are the largest class so we should be allowed to wear extra belts and amulets. keeping it real with the Lore...

3. There is no reason why shouts should count as three skill slots... instead call it Battle Cry and make it do (Armor, All resist, damage, crit chance, rage regeneration, lower enemy damage and slow them) this will free up some space.


In other words, you're not serious, because either you're joking or incredibly stupid.

Thank you for the insight on stupidity and I did lack some judgement in my post.. No reason why a barb needs extra strength we got enough.. Look at their arms bro!

two hand builds in general need a buff though, this includes barbs just as it does Wizards, Monks and WDs. Twohand builds are just to much behind either using dual wield or one hand with sources.

uh what? Show me that "build" then. Seriously, to wreck hawok on MP0 Inferno is NOT an achievemnt anymore. Not at all. I can use that argument for EVERYTHING then, explaining how EVERYTHING, even some obscure thorns build works, because some managed to get up to 60 000 damage, which is enough to destroy the content on MP0. Blah blah blah cry more etc


Your whole argument is a reflection of the problem with this game, not the barbarian class itself. 2h barbarians are very viable at all levels of difficulty, and more viable at all MP levels than pretty much every other class hands down. But I agree, dw barbs are currently better.

This game suffers from a lack of build diversity and itemization problems that funnel you to the same spec and gear as everyone else. Don't confuse game issues with class issues. Barbarians are at the top of the heap right now, regardless of spec, and it isn't even close.

fair enough, twohand builds for a barb is easier then for the other classes. But still its way behind dual wield. And, to make the skills work with twohand (like WW and keeping up the Berzerker) is not easy. If I would jump to dual wield I could easily get some 30 or even 40k more DPS alone from that ... because currently 1100 DPS one hand weapons are "relatively" cheap to an pretty good Skorn, and believe you dont want a skorn that is below 1400 DPS, because then you could also go dual wield.

Yeah, its sad that build diversity doesnt exist in Diablo 3 really, regardless if you play a Barb, DH or what ever :/

I always was one of those guys that would rather see a buff to the other classes instead of a nerf to the Barb (yeah well I am barb, what did you guys expect?).

I would rather see DHs and other builds pushed to that level of efficiency without spend a lot more in gear. A certain "balance" between the builds. So that people are not handicapped just because they chose the "wrong" character. Yes, it is somewhat stupid that once you get in to the higher MP levels most of the faces you see are barbs ... I always chear when I see Wizards, DHs and particularly Witchdoctors. But that is how D3 was sadly designed ... to say this, even though Barbs are a "good" class right now, that was not always true! Some here dont remember the mess the Barb and Monk and Witchdoctor have been in Inferno ... while Wizards and DHs farmed the highest difficulties.

It seems when Blizzard is doing something, they have a hard time to find an "midle ground". Plage is to weak, molten to strong. Now Plague is to strong and molten to weak ... and so on.

you guys should play twohand builds with the barb and come again saying its "OP". Will be a good laugh.


I do it all the time on MP9. It's not that big a deal. Just get a LS Skorn and run HOTA/Rend plus healing skills. I'm pretty sure you mean on MP10 tho. :D

I'll sometimes do Act 1 runs on MP10, but any further than that, and I get my a** chewed up. Except right now I'm running my Wizard on one of my Barb gems.

Barb MEGAZORD - The barb forms an organic voltron or megazord type conglomerate robot with the ancients. A little graphic - or disturbing - to younger viewers or the homophobic, but undeniably a powerful animal
