There are only three slots for passive skills, which three would you choose for your Barbarian, Ruthless, Weapons Master, Bloodthirst, Unforgiving or Tough as Nails? Do you want to know how other players choose their passive skills in the soft core mode in Patch 1.0.8 and why they choose these skills? Follow us.
Top one, Ruthless. “Critical Hit Chance increased by 5%. Critical Hit Damage increased by 50%. Many skills and runes rely on Critical Hits to trigger their effects.” For example, Battle Rage can have additional Fury with critical hits. This would increase your physical damage enormously as well. Even if you have the same sheet damage as other class, the damage you give in fact is much higher than others. This is what a Tank should do to give the Demons a heavy blow.
Top two, Weapons Master. “You would gain a bonus based on the weapon type of your main hand weapon.” For your reference, Two-handed weapon Skorn belongs to Axe which would give you 10% critical hit chance with this passive skill. The same as Ruthless, it is a skill to increase the damage but a little bit weaker than Ruthless which give critical hit damage as well. It is no wonder that Ruthless should be top one passive skill.
Top three, Bloodthirst. “Gain 3% of all damage done as Life.” In the early days, Skorn with life steal stats is pretty expensive. Barbarian can choose much ones without life steal but to choose this passive skill. This would save you a lot of Diablo 3 Gold. 3% Life steal is enough lower than Monster Power 7. If you would farm higher, you can choose Immortal king belt which would give you 3% life steal stats as well.
Top four, Unforgiving. “You no longer degenerate Fury. Instead, you gain 2 Fury every 1 seconds.” If you suffer serious Fury shortage, this skill would save you. Or you could choose Immortal king four set to gain 2 additional fury per second. But I would say, Mempo of Twilight and the Witching Hour would give you more damage.
Top five, Tough as Nails. “Increases Armor by 25%”. In the previous days, Inferno is difficulty and hard to survive, this passive skill is rather popular. But now, a lot of players can farm in Monster Power 10 easily. You can try this skill if you would rather walk like a killing machine.
