Throughout this brief Diablo 3 barbarian leveling guide, I will be discussing the main features and abilities of the barbarian class and discussing some of the attributes that will aid them in fast Diablo 3 leveling. Something to consider when choosing any Diablo 3 class is how easy the leveling process will be using that particular class. Fortunately, when it comes the powerful and sturdy barbarian, leveling to 60 in record time should be a breeze!
Some of the barbarian’s main attributes are easily visible from the character selection screen. They are clearly enormous, heavily-muscled beings who look to be ready for battle at a moment’s notice. When choosing to play as a barbarian, you have the option to pick either male or female. I really like this feature of Diablo 3, as it definitely provides a greater level of customization and connection with your character. The barbarian benefits greatly from strength, which simultaneously increases their armor as well as their damage output. It’s definitely a good idea to gather as much strength as you can get your hands on when choosing your Diablo 3 gear throughout the game, as it will help you absolutely tear through your enemies.
Barbarians are masters of close-quarter combat who dominate the battlefield with their enormous strength, mighty armor and devastating weapons. As the story goes, the barbarians were born and bred to protect Mount Arreat but after its fall, they became directionless wanderers in search of a new purpose. Fortunately for them, Diablo 3 seems to offer them quite a bit of action!
Regarding weapons and armor, barbarians in Diablo 3 will be able to use large One-Handed Mighty Weapons, Two-Handed Mighty Weapons, as well as Mighty Belts. Currently, it appears that barbarian armor will follow a progression from simple leather armor at low levels, to helms and plate armor and finally to the pinnacle of protection, head-to-toe heavy armor that will deflect and absorb enormous amounts of enemy damage.
As if barbarians weren’t sturdy and resilient enough already, they have a wide range of barbarian shouts available to help them out during battle. I will cover shouts in much more detail in a future post, but essentially shouts provide buffs to allies, de-buffs to enemies. Their shouts make the barbarian class a very worthy addition to any group looking to mow down enemies on their quest to level 60.
The main barbarian resource is called Fury and is used to perform some of their most powerful attacks and abilities. Fury is generated any time the barbarian gives or takes damage in combat. For this reason, the barbarian class benefits from a play-style that moves quickly from one group of enemies to the next. I would definitely keep a close eye on the barbarian as a viable option for quick leveling in Diablo 3, as their fury generation, heavy armor, and enormous damage output will lend itself quite well to power-leveling your character at warp speed.
As you have seen in this brief Diablo 3 barbarian leveling guide, the barbarian class in Diablo 3 is most certainly a force to be reckoned with. As powerful as they are fast, with as many great defensive abilities as they have offense abilities, the barbarian is without a doubt an extremely viable option for fast Diablo 3 leveling to level 60!
