There are 56 items the player needs to acquire, not including normal gems and Ramayana's Gift's. With these items you should be able to play most variations of Whirlwind builds for both pushing Greater Rifts, and Speed Farming.
Because this is a guide for new players, I have chosen no to use any abbreviations, except “GR” meaning “Greater Rifts”, and “Speed” meaning “Speed Farming” as in Ephraim Rifts or Bounties. The gear section lists the items you want to acquire and equip to yourself broken down by slot.
The cube section lists all the items whose legendary power you need to extract. If one of these items is also listed under the gear section, you should wait until you have two of them, and extract the weaker one.
Your follower is mostly only useful for pushing solo GR, they do minimal damage regardless of gear, instead they are there for buffing and rebuffing. Even then, do not stress about getting the best gear for them, maxing rolls, sockets, enchants, gems, etcetera.
Main Hand Weapon: Thunder fury, Blessed Blade of the Windbreaker The damage type of physical, lightning, ECT dose not matter, you simply want the highest range possible.
That means you will only be able to get 3 of the 4 priority stats listed, this is because you want to add your socket with a “Ramayana's Gift”. A good weapon would preferably be ancient, and come without a socket, so you are not rolling that away, as well as have a damage range in to top 30% possible, and have either Strength or Cool Down Reduction.
I'd just like to take one last moment to thank my girlfriend for being the inspiration for this guide, and the light in my life. Season 18: “Missed the Challenge Rift Goodies” Guide.
So you've got a brand new seasonal character, but for some reason you haven't been able to complete the Challenge Rift, or maybe you did it too soon? © Post “Season 19 WhirlwindBarbarian item guide for new players” for game Diablo 3.
To be eligible for the list, the game must be confirmed for 2020, or there should be good reason to expect its release in that year. Therefore, upcoming games with a mere announcement and no discernible release date will not be included.
Beware, however, that there are MANY MANA burners in hell, so much of the time you will be stuck using concentrate. )I was thinking about building a whirlwind barbarian and I never made one before (sorceress is my character).
