Through a captivating video showcasing their Barbarian character, a player unveils one of the most outrageous and unconventional builds to emerge from the launch of Diablo 4.
Despite being released just a week ago, Diablo 4 has already witnessed the birth of a multitude of unconventional builds, including a Thorns-focused Barbarian character. Despite the nerfs imposed on Barbarians in this installment of the Diablo franchise, the spin-to-win class continues to radiate its brilliance. Surprisingly, the first Hardcore character to achieve Level 100 in Diablo 4 is none other than a Barbarian. Although the Barbarian’s lack of ranged abilities, aside from Upheaval, poses challenges in certain endgame content, players are ingeniously discovering innovative methods to overcome these limitations.
Barbarian players in Diablo 4 are spoiled for choice when it comes to tackling endgame content like Helltides and Nightmare Dungeons. They can opt for the reliable and powerful Hammer of the Ancients build or the precise and focused Bleed build. However, for the indolent members of the Diablo community, there exists a build that demands nothing from the Barbarian while delivering a satisfying sight of a screen littered with monster remains and abundant treasures.
Crafted by the ingenious mind of WillyWanker_69, the Thorns Barbarian imparts a singular command to those who wish to master its intricate rotation: maintain serenity. To achieve true viability within the realm of Diablo 4, players must acquire the coveted Razorplate, a chest armor of unparalleled uniqueness that bestows upon its wearer an astonishing 9734 Thorns. Furthermore, the Needleflare, an aspect of legendary prestige, bestows an extraordinary ability: 40% of Thorns damage is unleashed as an expansive Area of Effect. While the build can be further enhanced with other legendary aspects like Death Wish, it is the indomitable combination of Razorplate and Needleflare that conjures the true enchantment.
Witness the captivating spectacle showcased in the video, where the Thorns Barbarian embarks on a leisurely promenade through the desolate realms of Sanctuary, cunningly orchestrating the demise of event monsters through their own futile assaults. Although it may appear contradictory to the essence of the Barbarian’s character, effortlessly decimating Strongholds in Diablo 4 without so much as a twitch is an undeniable testament to the formidable dominance of the Thorns build during the nascent stages of Diablo 4.
The future of the Thorns Barbarian in higher-level content is uncertain, but when combined with a Whirlwind loadout, it presents an exhilarating approach to conquering the obstacles of Diablo 4. The defensive nature of Thorns can be characterized as subtly assertive, and when coupled with the relentless Whirlwind attacks and the empowering effects of Wrath of the Berserker, it appears to be a logical progression for enhancing the overall build.
Experience the dark allure of Diablo 4 across multiple gaming platforms including PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
