Build Notes

Gameplay Loop
  1. Flay for Fury gain, damage reduction, and Thorns (Maintaining 4 stacks is ideal).
  2. Challenging Shout to taunt nearby enemies to hit you and grant you massive Thorns bonus.
  3. Rallying Cry to buff your Fury Generation.
  4. War Cry to buff your Damage output.
  5. Steel Grasp to hook to pull and group enemies into melee range.
  6. Rend for heavy Bleed Damage.
How It Works

This build is designed to be a fun leveling build that makes use of Bleed and Thorns damage to quickly dispatch of hordes of smaller monsters when they hit you and can down tougher monsters with big damage over time effects.

Flay will be your standard downtime ability to generate Fury and buff your defense/Thorns while Rend will be your primary source of dealing damage.

This build also comes with three different shouts to empower your Barbarians' Offensive & Defensive capabilities, along with Hook that can control the battlefield.

This build takes very little gear investment to be effective so it's a perfect starter set up, but scales like crazy if you can get the right stats on your items!

My plan is to use this build as a stepping stone that will carry me on into the next phase of this build which I will post here soon!
