General information

The entire build is based on the Might of the Earth set:

  • Reduces the remaining cooldown of Earthquake, Avalanche, Leap and Ground Stomp by 1 second for every 30 Fury spent by the Barbarian (2/6)
  • Causes an Earthquake whenever the Barbarian lands after using Leap. Leap gains the effect of the Iron Impact rune, in addition to any other, and the duration of Armor bonus is increased by 150% (4/6)
  • Increases the damage of Earthquake, Avalanche, Leap, Ground Stomp, Ancient Spear and Seismic Slam by 5600% (6/6)

Earthquake "Leapquake" Barbarian build is based on very high Earthquake's damage and amazing frequency at which it can be recast. By utilizing Lut Socks boots and Blade of the Tribes you can trigger Earthquake six times at once (one original cast, three from leaps with Lut Socks power, and one each from Threatening Shout and War Cry with Blades of the Tribes powers)

Shutting down the Auction House and implementation of the Loot 2.0 system killed nearly all player-to-player trading in Diablo 3. However, you may still obtain Legendary and Set gear through Item Farming, Boosting and Greater Rift carry services offered on the Odealo market.
