Skill Tree

First, let's break down the build starting with the Bash-focused strategy. We invest fully in the Bash skill for fortified generation when hitting stunned enemies. This core skill set forms the backbone of our offensive capabilities, particularly against non-boss foes.

Moving on, we bypass other enhancements and proceed to the defensive cluster. We prioritize Iron Skin and its enhancements, benefiting from a protective barrier and fortified generation upon activation. Additionally, Challenging Shout provides a taunt with damage reduction and increased maximum life while active.

We allocate points to key passives such as Imposing Presence for bonus maximum life, Martial Vigor for damage reduction from Elite enemies, and Outburst to facilitate the acquisition of Tough as Nails. The latter enhances Thorns damage and converts a portion of it into bleeding damage, effectively activating bleed effects upon taking damage.

In the Brawling cluster passives, Kick serves as a fury spender and applies vulnerability to bosses, while War Cry enhances damage output and activates Berserking. Passives like Booming Voice extend shout duration, Raid Leader provides healing during shout uptime, and Guttural Yell reduces enemy damage when using shouts.

Aggressive Resistance and Battle Fervor bolster our Berserking capabilities, providing damage reduction and extending Berserking duration upon damaging enemies with Kick. Pit Fighter in the Weapon Mastery enhances damage to nearby enemies, while the Thick Skin paves the way for Counteroffensive, granting bonus damage when health is above a certain threshold.

The Wrath of the Berserker ultimate skill and its enhancements amplify Berserk damage multipliers, ensuring consistent uptime through various triggers. Passives like Heavy Handed increase critical multiplier, Wallop boosts damage against stunned or vulnerable enemies, and Concussion adds a chance to stun enemies with budgeting weapons.

Finally, the key passive, Unconstrained, further augments damage gains while Berserking. In the technique slot, we prioritize vulnerable multipliers with the Two-Handed Axe Expertise, enhancing overall damage output in our current setup.

Gear & Aspects

Next, let's discuss the gear setup. Prioritize strength, critical strike damage, and maximum life on weapons, with cooldown reduction ideally on your helmet and amulet. Aim for crit chance and attack speed on your amulet, and crit chance, attack speed, and either strength or maximum life on your rings.

Ensure you have ranks to Bash on your pants slot, prioritizing the Greater Affixes and Masterworking. On boots, focus on bonus ranks to Kick, movement speed, and a flex slot for strength or resistances based on your setup. Adjust your build as your armor cap shifts because of Tempering.

The Paingorger's Gauntlets are essential for non-boss content, enhancing Bash's natural cleave. Additionally, consider the Rage of Harrogath if you lack the Tyrael's Might chest armor, as it provides cooldown reduction when applying bleed through Thorns, physical crit chance, and damage reduction from bleeding enemies.

For two-handed weapons, prioritize Rapid Aspect for bonus basic skill attack speed on one and the Aspect of the Moonrise for bonus attack speed, damage with basic skills, and movement speed on the other. Consider dual-wielding for increased attack speed, although the two-handed version synergizes well for this build's purposes.

Aspect of Adaptability on your amulet increases bash damage, while the Edgemaster's Aspect boosts damage based on your full research bar, Aspect of Inner Calm offers a general damage increase multiplier, and Aspect of Elements rotates damage increases.

Bold Chieftain Aspect on your boots reduces cooldowns depending on nearby enemies. Defensive Aspects include Iron Warrior, which strengthens Iron Skin, and Aspect of Might, providing constant damage reduction because of the reliance on basic skills. Hectic Aspect on boots offers cooldown reductions for basic skill casts.

Paragon Board

Let's take a look at the Paragon Board setup. On your Starter Board, we'll place the Exploit glyph for bonus damage to vulnerable enemies and vulnerable procs on first damage to enemies. We need to grab just enough Dexterity to activate the glyph. If you have less armor, consider going up through the rare armor node.

Switching to the Warbringer Board, we'll put the Territorial glyph for bonus damage to close enemies and damage reduction from them. Next, grab relevant rare and magic nodes, including extra all-element resist.

Move to the Carnage Board, insert the Ire glyph for bonus damage while Berserking and bonus damage reduction from Elites during Berserking. After, grab the necessary strength and other relevant nodes to maintain 40 damage while Berserking threshold. Proceed to the legendary node on the board, granting bonus attack speed for every critical strike while Berserking.

Then, acquiring the damage while Berserking rare and magic nodes. Attach the Decimator Board and travel down and right to the glyph socket. We'll place the Undaunted glyph for bonus damage while fortified and scaling damage reduction based on Fortify. Gather rare and magic nodes, ensuring enough Willpower to power the glyph.

Attach the Hemorrhage Board, moving down and left to reach the glyph socket. Insert the Might glyph for bonus effects to all magic nodes within range and an increased damage multiplier with two-handed weapons.

Finally, attach the Flawless technique node from the Blood Rage Board. Insert the Revenge glyph for bonus rare nodes within range and a stacking damage multiplier with Thorns damage.

Tips And Tricks

Let's discuss how to effectively play the build in various scenarios such as Nightmare Dungeons, Pit runs, or facing Unber bosses. The approach is quite consistent across these situations. Begin by activating Wrath of the Berserker, followed by using Kick when your Fury is at its maximum.

Then, ensure you replenish your Fury to the maximum and use Kick again. Even without maximum Fury bonuses, this exhausts 200 Fury, the maximum for benefiting from Wrath of the Berserker's bonuses. After this sequence, utilize War Cry for the damage boost. If possible, employ Iron Skin before using the Challenging Shout to reduce its cooldown.

Otherwise, maintain a steady barrage of Bash attacks, with War Cry used whenever it's off cooldown. Keep an eye on the Berserk timer in your ability bar to determine whether an extra Kick is needed to prevent your bonuses from resetting. If you lose Berserk at any point, you must restart the process by activating Wrath of the Berserker once more.
