Double Swing Barbarian Build

This fast-paced Build focused on eliminating Stunned enemies can efficiently decimate both small groups and bosses.


This Build mainly revolves around the use of Double Swing. The Skill will be able to be spammed when enemies are Stunned, so you can quickly take out groups and single targets.

Additional Core Skills:

  • Bash – can help generate Fury, as well as with getting Overpower.
  • Charge – will give mobility, and helps inflict Stun on enemies.
  • Leap – gives another source of mobility, Fury regen, and Dust Devil creation.
  • Rallying Cry – will give you a source of Fury regen, and another boost in mobility.
  • Wrath of the Berserker – a powerful buff that enhances many aspects of your Barbarian.


The Key Passive for this Build is Unconstrained, as it will make Berserking last longer, as well as enhance it.

Additional Passives:

  • Imposing Presence, Martial Vigor, Guttural Yell, Aggressive Resistance, and Thick Skin will increase your survivability.
  • Pit Fighter, Counteroffensive, Wallop, and Concussion will boost your damage.
  • Booming Voice, Prolific Fury, and Battle Fervor will help your utility.

Weapon Technique

For this Build, you will want to have 2-Handed Axe Expertise equipped. This will help boost your damage to Vulnerable enemies. You will want to set your Skills to use your Dual Wield weapons, while having a 1-Handed Sword and 1-Handed Mace equipped.
