Seasoned Diablo 3 account holders know that Diablo 3 is not a simple single-player game. Once you start visiting Greater Rifts you will need to start working with other players. After all, you don’t want your character to die right? The Double Scorpion Support build for Barbarians by Tacotrap is what you’ll want to work with. Today we show you how to use this build.
Skills to help other Diablo 3 Account holders
This Barbarian build is heavily reliant on both skills and items. D3 account holders will need to have Ancient Spear (Harpoon) as this is half of what gives the build its name. When used it will damage, slow and drag targets close to your character. Another skill to pull enemies close is Whirlwind (Hurricane). Note that it is also a good way to apply debuff on targets closeby. Once near the Barbarian, Ground Stomp (Jarring Slam) can be used to stun the enemies. The rune is picked for the higher chance of generating Health Globes for the group.
Your character will also buff the party with Ignore Pain (Mob Rule), War Cry (Invigorate) and Threatening Shout (Grim Harvest). Passives like Inspiring Presence are also taken to further the buffs. For a full list of skills, check the build page here.
Items to get on your Diablo 3 Account
The other half of “scorpion” part of the build is The Butcher’s Sickle. This weapon has a chance to drag enemies towards the Barbarian. Make sure this item is available before you buy D3 account. The Ess of Johan is also worn to apply the drag effect on normal attacks. Azurewrath is also critical to further control crowds.
Other items needed for the build include Reaper’s Wraps to help keep Whirlwind up. Leoric’s Crown is equipped to improve buffs similar to Pride of Cassius. Born’s Command and Captain Crimson’s Trimmings are also picked up for cooldown reduction bonuses.
Gems to keep on your Diablo 3 Account
Since the Barbarian will be constantly dishing out crowd control, a Bane of the Trapped will make him deal more damage to those enemies. Getting it at rank 25 will also make sure no mobs escapes. Gogok of Swiftness at rank 25 also provides much needed cooldown reduction. Lastly Gem of Efficacious Toxin will at rank 25 will help your allies deal more damage.
