Introduction

With a focus shifted away from perma-stun and damage buffs into Toughness boosting and crowd control, the support Barbarian rises to meet the requirements of the metagame. This crowd control and buff-oriented build is strictly multiplayer oriented, a zero DPS spec that plays part of a composition with other damage dealing party members. To help you with your group compositions, please refer to our Group Meta overview.
