Barbarian Weapons

Once you reach level 70 and have chosen a Build for your Barbarian, you will want to start picking out the best weapons to complement it. Just like with the armor sets, the weapons are designed to enhance specific Skills from the Barbarian’s arsenal, which we will mention in the Best Weapons section of this guide. Note that while some of these weapons work best for a particular build when they are equipped, others should be Cubed (their effect stored via Kanai’s Cube).

Barbarian’s unique weapons are Mighty Weapons (both 1-Handed and 2-Handed).

  • Barbarians will generally prefer to dual wield weapons. However, a 2-handed weapon is also viable in some builds. The specific best weapons will be based on the build you choose.
  • For the most part, you will never use a shield unless you need more survivability early on.
  • You will always want to use Flawless Royal Emeralds on your weapon sockets for the extra Critical Hit Damage.
