Spin-to-win barb is always a blast. I chose to roll with the necromancer this time around… though I think I may be reaching the cap of what I’m willing to do without dying on that toon… I might level my barbarian and see if I can’t build a wastes set.

Shouldn’t take long, but feel free to mix around the skills. Don’t really like using Band of Might and Furious Charge, but it’s a cheap build for Toughness.

Yeah, I tend to not be a cookie cutter build person. I’ll use builds as an idea. The rest depends on what I can get and what is fun/feels right.
