THE WARCRY BARB
Get ready to play with muted sound

Image

Disclaimer: This is not a starter build, There are many ways to level a barb and i will leave that up to you. I will show you multiple Gearing options and suggestions to push your character to the absolute maximum. If you have a certain playstyle you prefer by all means go for it, I am not suggesting that my way is the only way to make this character.

PROS
Tier S Farming build 7-8 player Fauntz.
Rifting Viable
1mil+ defense
Very Budget Friendly
Huge Magic find farming capabilities ( 700+MF)

CONS
This is not a boss killer!
Not a league starter.
Many Enchanted Shrines Needed.
Barb Warcrying is Loud AF


2.0 BIG Changes If you are curious YES, WARCRY IS STILL VERY GOOD. We are back to 1.6 scaling and dumping everything possible into Energy for farming. warcry now gets additional scaling with energy! 3% warcry damage per 100 total energy. This is great because for beginners this will solve the early game mana problems most people had. Also Need to mention the guide is a work in progress once again, I need to revisit labs in 2.0. I did not have time to test warcry in beta because i was testing many many other specs in beta!. Stay tuned for an updated super end game guide.

General playstyle and what to expect

Warcry barb is what you honestly expect it to be, solid aoe coverage,big defense and most importantly a very solid all around character. There are multiple different setups that can be used depending on your playstyle. Cheap budget variants will still land you doing all content in the game with ease and investing into this character will enable you to do some of the highest rifts and content in the game. Warcry makes solo farming a complete joke, i highly reccomend you join multiple player games for the huge increase in drops and xp!

Abbreviations:

FCR = Faster cast rate | FPA = Frames per Attack | FHR = Faster Hit recovery
IAS = Increased Attack speed | PMSD = Physical/Magic Spell damage | xp = Expierence
LAEK = Life After each kill | WC = Warcry| MF = Magic Find

Skills SMAX


SMAX - Ancient's Blood |Wolf Companion | Mountain King

Image

Warcry is unique in the fact that it can CRIT, You gain 4% base critical strike chance per base level in wolf companion,8% critical damage per base point in Ancient Blood and 3% warcry damage per mountain king base level. This is why we smax all three!



Warcry Budget Options

MUST READ - Warcry only spawns on Barbarian swords! ( Ida | Bronze Sword | Kriegsmesser ) is the base sword you want to use! Make sure the sword is itemlevel 99 by turning on the "Display Item's Level" in the interface options. Do not use spatha or Backsword because they only give us 3 sockets. It is also very important to note that Hitting warcry with a shrine is very rare. I would say it takes 10 shrines to see warcry once! If you hit warcry Keep it and find another sword base to keep crafting and trying to hit a better roll!

    Stat Allocation:

    Strength: Enough for gear
    Dexterity: Enough for gear
    Vitality: None early
    Energy: Everything possible.


*Potential Early Mana problems: Some people have mentioned of mana problems early, This is only because you do not have your charms + levels that give you stats. Try to finish your 400 signets of learning ASAP! Farm nithalak/Mephisto in hell its your best option. Once you have enough str in for gear dump everything into Energy. I also highly recommend you get

ASAP. These have all the flat energy and %max mana that you will need early on.

*Potential mistakes to avoid* I've gotten alot of messages regarding feeling squishy early on. The main reason you feel this way is because your total defense is a little low at the moment. Get used to keeping your innate barb skill titans' Fortitude up at all times. It was patched in 1.5 to be a buff rather than an attack. It Now adds bonus maximum life: 6% + 1% per 10 character levels and also adds bonus defense: 10% + 1% per character level. early on max out runemaster/bear stance and immortal. It's more important to get your defense high as it is our single biggest Defensive factors. You can also Mo your jewelery for flat defense which when you have as much % defense as we get, Getting flat even on jewelery is very meaningful! Check the mystic orb section above for the order of mos i recommend for jewelery.

You obviously need atleast one item with warcry to get started, Id prefer you get voice of the arreat helm that opens up options in your weapon slots to scale your damage until you get enough shrines to make warcry barbarian weapons. If you can get the

. It should be noted that +barbarian skill levels does not apply to warcry. Warcry is a O skill so only +ALL skills will apply to the warcry skill. Use any weapons you find with +All skills + spell dmg/PMSD. Early on you want to use just enough strength to wear your gear and dump the rest into energy. Conentrate on getting your defense up by getting solid defense rolls on your gear. since we are using bear stance we get alot of %defense. That means getting a high amount of flat will really scale our total defense early on, which is a very important factor for the build. If you are struggling to get defense i would recommend dropping one sword and using a shield. The best option is

early on but i do highly recommend you use 2 swords for the higher FPA casting. Dual wielding will always be more Damage per second.

READ*

[2.0] In this patch everything has changed in terms of scaling our damage, Energy scaling is back on the menu in a big way. warcry in patch 2.0 gets an additional 3% warcry damage per 100 total energy. In beta i was able to easily get 4k+ energy which turns out to be a huge damage buff.

Now depending on your gear , level and setup to farm efficently i would dump points into bear stance depending on your physical resistance. Once you cap your phy dr at 50% you then use your extra points into Runemaster. The idea here being, putting extra points into bear stance only gives % defense and you get more per base point into runemaster than bear stance. The ideal defense needed to farm fauntz is 825kish at lvl 140 roughly. The idea is to have enough defense that you are only being hit 5% of the time which is the lowest you can achieve. Gaining more defense after the fact will net you nothing. so once you hit your 5% chance to be hit dump your extra points into immortal. which gives us chance to avoid dmg while standing still.[/i]

ClearSpeed Magic Find Variant


Notable Differences:
1.) Dropped Runemaster for Gladiators dominance - 60-75% Movement speed for clearing.
2.) Uses Crafted Jewels over Runes
3.) More Damage + clear speed at the sacrifice of barely any MF. Have over 500+ EZ.

Crafting Jewels:

Main stats - PMSD/Spell Focus/1% All Attrib/2% Energy/MF

Since we use gladiators dominance, we can get more dmg from each socket. Use Fal Rune recipe to craft your jewels ( Fal + AC + Oil of crafting + Jewel)

There are plently of jewel outcomes that will outclass a single Tal rune in terms of damage, BIS jewel is probably 4% PMSD/15Focus/2%energy/MF, now craft 20x of these. Goodluck.

My Thoughts:

Let's Talk about gear choices on this variant, we are focusing on clear speed over raw MF numbers, at a certain point you hit very high diminishing returns on MF and clear speed just becomes king. This variant requires you have nice swords to boost your dps up so that you can still farm multiplayer games. The trade off to getting movement speed is you lose 70% of your total defense, that makes getting LAEK very valuable for sustaining. In my video i didnt use der nebel rings because i was soloing and dps rings are just better. For multi player games of 4+ i would use der nebel rings with this setup.

You may ask is it worth doing this setup over the full MF variant, Imo movement speed is massive the difference in clear times has been very noticeable, And buying a adrenaline rush as a stop gap just didn't feel as good as gladiators dominance. Of course you could use both gladiators dominance and

READ*

2.0 In this patch everything has changed in terms of scaling our damage, Energy scaling is very strong so we are dumping all our points into energy. You do not need any points into vitality unless you are going to be rifting!.

There is the potential to dump every single point into vitality, This will obviously cause some mana issues, If you want to go full vitality then you should try to use a wormhole with life% & %mana. Try to get high mana rolls on your belial charm and bremmtown charm. Every bit of flat mana possible will be important, Mana regen on rings or

Armor - Aim for +2 | 35-40%PMSD | 175%+ED. Other nice stats - Flat physical damage reduction | %Attributes | Flat Energy | FHR. I shall mention that ED on ancient armor is a very huge factor on hitting your defense goal and saving point investment in runemaster. Try to hit ED on your Armor it will help alot!
Helm - Bench the 10% PMSD with the Vendor MO's , For the last 20 requirement levels i suggest leaving it open incase you want to do Endgame rifting.
Boots - Spirit Walkers are expensive and hard to get at times, so once i acquired them i wanted to only put UMO's that would work well with other spell casting characters.

Adds a huge amount of stats for this build. %bonus energy factor is a multiplier on your base EF, which means that it will take less energy to cap your Energy Factor spell damage and thus allows you to put points into Vitality without losing any dmg from Energy Synergy. This is a massive boost to survivability in the endgame.

Belt - 10%PMSD - Leave the other 20 lvl requirements alone until you decide if you want to do rifts or not.
Gloves - 10%PMSD | Leave the other requirements levels alone until you decide if you want to do rifts or not.
Rings - Der nebels give us so much survivability and LAEK that i think its the BIS Ring, aim for getting a +1 der nebel and adding 10% PMSD. If you want pure damage aim for the rare ring with +1/25% PMSD OR the biggest dmg ring is a 40% PMSD The darkness set ring. If you do end up getting a huge rolled darkness Bench 10% PMSD for that juicy 50% PMSD ring.


Super EndGame WarCry Riftstone Setup


WarCry has been one of the best Tier 1 - Tier 10 Riftstone Farmers ive played so far, you literally teleport on mobs and destroy Rifts. Tier 11+ you will need to be strategic with your gameplay. I managed to get up to t14 with a sub optimal setup. So the potential is definitly there to get past level 140 easily.

    Stat Allocation:

    Strength: Enough for gear
    Dexterity: Enough for gear
    Vitality: To be determined
    Energy: Majority of your stats

READ* Make sure to max out mountain king asap to help with equipping gear and building your energy. Stat allocating will differ for everyone eventually once you get nice charms with high flat stats.

READ*The main reason to mo gear with 15% all resists is pretty simple, tier 14 maps pierce 100% elemental resists. That means that it takes 160 total resists to cap our resists at 90% Maximum resists normally but for t14 rifts we actually need to hit 260% total resists. The only way i could hit this much resists was from using 1x of each perfect gem in my gloves and mystic orbing several slots with 15% all resists. Keep in mind that in some situations you can be cursed with a lower resistance curse that brings your total resistance down by 30. Which then means you actually need to be at around 290% total resistance for t14+ rifts. Obviously if you plan on farming lower tier rifts you can mystic orb for damage (

This is not a joke. Even just rolling war cry by itself takes anywhere between 5 to 30 shrines let alone rolling a good one.

But yeah the gearing for this takes a lot of patience.

Good guide.

another solid idea, that will be great for bosses. I just never tested it myself so i didnt give it a mention in my guide. The damage with spell bind on a boss has got to be insane ha . I will add it to the endgame section+

thanks again mort

maxing out immortal doesn't help much in upper labs. I forget which tier, but at some point, if you get hit, it reduces your avoid like a debuff, which pretty much makes immortal totally useless besides the hit recovery

Interesting, This is the type of information i didnt have access to. I will do some testing and see if i can figure out what tier map this is happening in and then adjust my guide accordingly. thx

/e. Turns out its tier 12 riftstone where your avoid is lowered once you get hit, I will add this in. I suppose the best course in t12 + is to dump extra points into ancient blood for more life and the extra skills for damage.
