Gold Find Barbarian Build for Diablo 2 Resurrected

Last updated on Sep 30, 2021 at 07:00 by MrLlamaSC 1 comment

The Gold Find Barbarian is a later game build designed to collect as much Gold as fast as possible. This build is actually very low budget and focuses on increasing the Gold Find of the Barbarian while giving a Mercenary enough damage to clear out the mobs. While not the most popular build, it is extremely fun to pick up massive sums of gold and satisfies any gambling habit.



A few different characters can farm Gold effectively. However, the Barbarian is one of the best and is also known for running the highest amount of Gold Find of any character thanks to his ability to dual-wield 6 open socket swords with Lem Rune Lem Runes in them. While he is usually pretty limited in areas he can farm (and usually sticks to the Travincal Council), he is a specialist for the task.
