Finally you have reached Inferno. This is the place where this game shows it’s teeth. Probably when you will just enter the Inferno you may be shocked by crazy damage that mobs deal and amount of their health. Do not worry. If you cannot handle Inferno at the beginning go and farm hell. Finally you have Nephalem Valor so you can farm better. CLICK HERE for THE BEST Diablo 3 Barbarian Guide

As you can see these passives are focus on protecting you. Boon of Bul-Kathos is perfect if you often want to use WotB and Earthquake (your main damage dealers).
This Build is perfect for Inferno due to a lot of reasons.
First of all Inferno Act 1 is simply farming place for under geared characters. You just want to fight against elite mobs so “Earthquake and Wrath of Berserker” is perfect for that. Other skills like War Cry ad Revenge are great defensive skill to recharge your life etc.
This build is also very good if you want to play with group. War Cry will give your team great additional bonus and other skills will make your great tank. CLICK HERE for THE BEST Diablo 3 Barbarian Guide
