Diablo 4 Guide – Complete Barbarian Skill Tree

A complete list of all Barbarian skills.

Posted By | On 05th, Jun. 2023

Diablo 4_02

The Barbarian has 23 active skills in Diablo 4. Barbarians is a melee-focused class relying on high HP and defense to tank incoming damage, and dishing out almost as much as they take through passive Thorns.

While on the offensive, the Barbarian should rely on area of effect attacks such as Hammer of the Ancients, and Ground Stomp, as well as the ubiquitous Whirlwind. These particular skills often confer crippling debuffs on targets, making them even more susceptible to further attacks.
