Diablo 4 Barbarian Gear Guide: Stats, Priorities, and Item Recommendations
In Diablo 4, choosing the right gear and optimizing your stats is crucial for maximizing your Barbarian's potential. This guide aims to provide insights on what to look for in your gear and prioritize your stats. Please note that Diablo 4 is an evolving game, and these recommendations are based on the game's current state. Let's dive in!
For the glove slot, the top choice is Grips, a powerful unique glove option. However, if you don't have Grips or prefer a different setup, prioritize Whirlwind ranks to boost your Whirlwind damage. Additionally, Lucky Hit is an excellent stat for synergy with vulnerable procs. Look for gloves with high crit chance and other offensive stats like dexterity.
Cooldown reduction is the most crucial stat for your amulet, so aim for an amulet with maximum cooldown reduction. Additionally, prioritize stats that boost your defensive skills, such as ranks to all defensive skills. Defensive stats like damage reduction can also be valuable. If you're lucky, you may find an amulet with an entirely cost reduction, but it's rare. Focus on defensive stats and cooldown reduction as your main priorities.
While the ideal weapon, the Grandfather, may not be available yet, other options exist. For one-handed weapons, prioritize crit chance, crit damage, vulnerable damage, main stat, and additive damage. Sword base weapons are recommended for extra crit damage. For two-handed weapons, prioritize crit damage, closed damage, core damage, main stat, and additive damage. Bleed damage is also viable but has a lower range. Overall, focus on crit damage, closed damage, core damage, and main stat.
Look for rings with a high chance of crit damage and resource generation. Resource generation is a separate multiplier for your resource generation and is crucial for maintaining Fury. Additionally, prioritize stats like vulnerable damage and additive damage. Rings with crit chance, crit damage, and resource generation are essential for optimal performance.
The utility is the key focus for boots. Look for boots with entirely cost reduction, movement speed, secondary movement speed after killing elites, and additional stats like dexterity or main stat. Berserking duration increase can be helpful, especially after recent changes. Focus on utility stats that enhance your overall performance.
The ideal helm, Harlequin's Crest (Shaco), may not be available. Aim for cooldown reduction as the primary stat on your helm. Damage reduction, Max Fury, main stat, or all stats are good secondary stats to consider. Keep Helms with cooldown reduction, as they are vital for your build.
While the previous options for stacking Challenging Shouts ranks and cooldown reduction are no longer viable, prioritize challenging shot ranks, damage reduction, damage, and resource generation. A chest with high ranks, damage reduction, and additional defensive or offensive stats will greatly benefit your Barbarian.
In the end game, you'll want unique pants that provide continuous barrier effects. However, if you don't have them yet, focus on stats like damage after killing elites, ranks to walk right, damage reduction, fortify constant, and defensive stats like main stat, all stats, or dexterity. Experiment with different pants to find the best combination for your play style.
This guide provides an overview of gear and stat priorities for Barbarians in Diablo 4. Remember that Diablo 4 is an ever-evolving game, and these recommendations are subject to change as updates are released.
