The zero damage Barb (zBarb) is one of the best support builds in the game and has a place in almost every group Most Effective Tactic Available (META). Its main skill is Furious Charge in combination with Ancient Spear Rage Flip to group monster together quickly while providing tremendous buffs to all group members with skills like, Ignore Pain and War Cry. This build is one of The most engaging but also one of the hardest, if not the hardest build, to play in the entire game. So let‘s get into it!

❌ Loads of Tasks to Take Care of
- Horde of the Ninety Savages (2) Bonus for the double effectiveness of War Cry and Threatening Shout Falter
- The Legacy of Raekor (4) Bonus to be able to move around fast with Furious Charge
- Illusory Boots to move unhindered into the best spots for a perfect Ground Stomp Wrenching Smash
- Pride of Cassius to get permanent up time on your most important buff Ignore Pain Mob Rule
- Chilanik's Chain to get the huge 40% Movement Speed boost to everyone in the group
- Strongarm Bracers for the easy to proc 30% additive damage buff
- Band of Might if you are not crazy high Paragon this is a must have to survive

Global Stat Priorities
Aim to get permanent Ignore Pain Mob Rule for you and your teammates. To achieve this you need a minimum of 63.50% Cooldown Reduction. You can also play with a bit less Cooldown Reduction due to Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac, which procs when Ancient Spear Rage Flip hits enemies.
Attack Speed is nice to have for faster Furious Charge speed but there are no necessary important breakpoints to hit.
- Overall best supporter in the entire game!
- Used in every 4-player group setup there is!
- Hard to master but very active and fun to play!
- Carry and lead your group to victory!
I hope this guide gave you the insides into the zBarb and can help you improve your understanding and playstyle. For me playing zBarb is one of the most enjoyable things to do in Diablo so enjoy the real Barb power!
