Barbarian Items

diablo 2 barbarian items

Diablo 2 Barbarian Items are much like other items. They have a variety of stats and types, can be found magical, Rare, Unique, and sometimes in Sets as well. The real difference is that these items can only be used by one character class, and they can have random bonuses to individual skills, much like the ones you see on wands/staves/scepters in Diablo II. This is in contrast with magic items possessing class-specific Skill Level and Barbarian Skill Tree prefixes, which may be used by classes other than the Barbarian without benefiting from the skill modifiers.

Barbarians get Primal Helms in the Expansion. These are helms with magical stats like any other headgear, and the ability to have special +to barbarian skills, as well as +to all Barb skills. Barbarians can wear them or not, it all depends on the stats found on them. A really good rare or unique helm is going to beat most barb-helms, but the possible dream mods on a Barb-helm are the best you can find.

Primal Helms cannot be gambled in the Expansion, they must be found.

Inherent Bonuses

Any Barbarian helm may have +1-3 points in up to 3 individual skills from all three of his skill trees, Combat Skills, Warcries, and Combat Masteries, from Clvl 1 up to the Clvl 30 skills. The bug where no Clvl 30 skills would occur in Diablo II has been fixed in the Expansion. These random +skills work just like the bonuses you see on wands/scepters/staves in Diablo 2, and can occur on normal, magical, and Rare items.

  • Item Level: Chests and monsters must be at least this level to drop the item. Ilvl is used in gambling, sales and other calculations as well.
  • Clvl Req: Your character must be this level or higher to equip the item.
  • The hue and color of base items in Diablo II can vary greatly, depending on the item’s modifiers.
