Diablo 4 Barbarian BuildDouble Swing Leveling

Season 4
Build Summary

Double Swing Barbarians cruise through Capstone Dungeons and Nightmare Dungeons alike, effortlessly slicing through fields of demons like a ninja in a piñata shop.

Where this build really shines, however, is fighting staggered bosses and stunned elites. When ‍Double Swing hits a stunned or staggered enemy, the entire base cost of ‍Double Swing is refunded. If the Barbarian pops all his cooldowns and stacks all his buffs in that moment, he becomes a gasoline-powered meat-grinder that will not rest until there's nothing left of his enemies.

Variant Summary

S4 FAST Double Swing Leveling Barb that not only is amazing for Leveling Quickly, but will be a great transition into the S4 Tornado Barb Build.

Build Notes

Gameplay Loop
  • The ‍Double Swing Barbarian build is one of the smoothest leveling builds. It deals the highest single-target DPS, has the highest Fury-efficiency, and can give us 100% uptime on Berserking or Vulnerable.

  • Its only weakness is a short range and small area of effect, which we will solve with ‍Steel Grasp. This has the added benefit of making enemies Vulnerable, which increases our damage more than usual via ‍Wallop.

-‍ Double Swing is uniquely positioned to benefit the most from recent buffs to both Berserking and ‍Charge.

  • No Barbarian build is better at early-game boss fights. ‍Double Swing is an excellent choice if you are trying to tackle a Capstone Dungeon at low level.
How It Works

Gear Details:

Armor typically grants us Defense and Utility stats, except the Gloves, which offer a multitude of Offensive options. Here are the important stats to look for:

Helm: Maximum Life, Total Armor, Cooldown Reduction Chest Armor: Maximum Life, Total Armor, Damage Reduction from Close Enemies Gloves: Ranks of Double Swing, Attack Speed, Critical Strike Chance Pants: Ranks of Charge, Ranks of Leap, Berserking Duration Boots: Movement Speed, Berserking Duration, Fury Cost Reduction

Weapon Details:

Since ‍Double Swing can only use One-Handed Weapons, that's the only slot where DPS matters. Prioritize high weapon DPS above everything else on your One-Handed Weapons, but make sure you always have at least one Mace equipped.

If you have multiple weapons with the same DPS prioritize the one with the following affixes: Damage to Close Enemies, Damage with Core Skills, Damage while Berserking, and Strength.

Jewelry provides powerful Offensive and Defensive stats that help us on our leveling journey. Pay close attention to the rolls as higher leveled pieces aren't always better:

Amulet: Movement Speed, Ranks of Brawling Skills, Fury Cost Reduction Rings: Critical Strike Chance, Maximum Life, Damage to Close Enemies
