Not to be rude, but your impressions (opinions) kinda suck. I'm not a huge fan of playing barbarians because I have my own preferences, but removing immunities in this game is a horrible idea. You can get up to 100% pierce for regular monsters and 199% for some bosses. Removing immunities would make the bosses totally pointless as a boss. There are skills that can remove/"break" immunities, and some builds emphasize those heavily.

How do Snake and Eagle stances not fit with barbarian? How do wolves not fit? What elementals do barbarians have? They can summon Ancient Spirits, but no idea where you're getting elementals from. You gave very undescriptive impressions for these points.

Having pre-requisites is the entire concept of Diablo. What would be the point of building a character if you could just say "Oh I want this one, but don't want to work for it."

I think you need to play through the full game instead of just the beginning and viewing the skill tree to make an impression about this game. Many new players have done the same as you and complained about similar things, only to find out that they just never put the time in to try to understand how skills and builds can work together.

Ok... where do i begin :

Skill requisites are there from the get go since clod. Applies to every class , not just barbarian. For instance , you CANT have Battle Orders before spending at least 1 point in Shout and etc. So i dont know what you mean with that.

This is supposed to be a full revamp mod. That means what makes sense like barb leap , WW (theres Windform oskill here thats basically WW) or necro summoning undeads from clod got trashed to make room for fresher archetypes. I can see where youre coming from with this tho, i was hard to wrap my head around this concept at first but you just get used to it and frankly it makes classes fresh if youre burnt out from same old builds in clod. There's a lot more variety here.

Monsters with immunities are also a clod feature. It makes me wonder if you ever played the vanilla game at all. If you have you will probably notice that from Nightmare to Hell ALL monsters get 1 or 2 immunities , so you need to rely on a merc for outside element damage or just physical if youre a sorceress. Barbarian in median in particular has quite an array of skills to deal with immunities, meaning he DOES have skills that convert your damage into an element (Iceburst , Stormblast, etc).

Dont take it as flaming, i honestly empathize with the stuff you typed, but you need to spend more than just 1 day or 1 week playing this mod to understand all its features, if you try that you will see that many of your gripes with the mod are unfounded.

Your first impressions are totally legitimate (when I started playing I too thought that the stance concept is funky, this view will most likely change as you keep playing). But demanding change based on just first impressions is completely preposterous. Give it time and maybe try another class, barbarian is quite demanding.

not to be disrespectful either but imo you should play over 10 min before you criticize class. 2/3 the skills you mentioned as missing are there and LEAP ATTACK I just lol'd, a 200kg dude jumping whole screen to kill a giant mosquito makes so much sense in your book right? since you use the word "sense" a lot.

to be fair only the prereq on stances comment had any logic, which is like this for consistency. for the rest you're speaking too soon / using too much d3-braindeadness logic imo, but appreciate the intention anyway
