Below is a table for those who wish to play along and have a bit more guidance! Every level and quest that gives a Skill or Stat points is listed so you can build out your Barbarian without any concern about messing up your build! That being said, while this guide is very detailed and exact you don't have to follow it 100% to have a successful playthrough. Every hero is slightly unique in their journey through the game, the items they find along the way, and how you want to play it! Feel free to make adjustments that feel right for your character and playstyle.

Singer Barbarian Leveling Tips

The Singer Barbarian is actually the fastest leveling path for the character, due to not requiring Attack Rating to hit and having a good Area of Effect damage. To start however, you must first work your way to Level 30, utilizing Double Swing Double Swing and Frenzy Frenzy. You can use Malice and a 3-socket Flail with 3 Tal Rune Tal Runes until you get to Level 30, where you can respec. From there, keep pumping up your War Cry War Cry while also finding good sources of Mana to help sustain. This sustain need is also the reason for placing some Points in Energy. This build eventually does start to fall off in Hell but can hopefully get you leveled up a bit faster than playing Melee the whole way through.
