Builds – Speed Barbarian
In Diablo 3 the Barbarian is no longer the undefeatable brute as it was in the previous installment of the franchise.
Below we will have a look at the Speed Barbarian. This particular build will work perfectly for normal and nightmare difficulties. It relies on a lot of movement in the battlefield and powerful AOE attacks. Let’s begin by having a look at the active skills.
Level Required – 40.

Left Mouse Button – Bash will be used with the Onslaught rune
Right Mouse Button – Seismic Slam associated with the Rumble rune
Action Key 1–Leap will use the Iron Impact rune
Action Key 2–Revenge will have the Vengeance is Mine rune
Action Key 3–Furious Charge will be associated with the Merciless Assault rune
Action Key 4–Wrath of the Berserker with the Insanity rune
For passive skills, we will have a combination of damage boosting traits and armor increasing ones as the build needs to be viable for Nightmare and some part of Hell.
Weapons Master will be used for the damage bonus
Ruthless for the critical strike bonus
Tough as Nails for the armor bonus

In combat, the Barbarian will move through large packs of enemies with the aid of the Furious Charge skill.
It also helps to get out of difficult situations while Revenge wills degree of life leech. To be noted that this build is not great against bosses. It does not deal enough single target damage to make it viable in difficult fights.
It might work for Normal bosses but starting with the Nightmare difficulty, this build needs to be modified. For normal PvE grinding the build is more than OK. Certain survivability skills and the damage against multiple targets is sufficient.
When getting close to the end of the Hell difficulty, more armor will be required and a shield should be included in the gear list.
