Introduction

This end game Barbarian build mixes the powers of Immortal King and The Legacy of Raekor sets, combining the all-around utility of the former with the Furious Charge Furious Charge devastation of the latter. The build is designed with Greater Rift solo progression in mind, but we also have a speed farming variant, which you can access by clicking the link below.

Note that you can shift around Immortal King and Raekor pieces according to your best rolls, as long as you maintain the equipped ratio of 5 Immortal King pieces and 3 Raekor pieces. The outline above is just a viable example of several combinations.

2.2.1.

Angelic Crucible Sanctification

Season 27 comes with the theme of Angelic Crucibles — consumable items that empower Legendary items with perfected Ancient-level stats, as well as infuse them with one of three unique, powerful, class-specific abilities at random. For this build, we recommend aiming for the Wrath of the Berserker Wrath of the Berserker Sanctification, which adds the following power to your build:

  • Wrath of the Berserker Sanctification: Hitting enemies generates stacks of Tempest Rhythm. Activating Wrath of the Berserker consumes 50 stacks of Tempest Rhythm and startles enemies within 16 yards, causing them to take 2% increased damage per stack for 20 seconds. Max 50 stacks.

Use Angelic Crucibles on an item that crosses over most (if not all) variants of a build, and is also an item that is relatively harder to perfect than other slots (since sanctifying an item maximizes its stats). In the case of this build, a good candidate for Sanctification is the Band of Might Band of Might.

You can read more on Angelic Crucibles and the sanctification process in our dedicated Angelic Crucible Mechanics guide.
