The male Barbarian was initially-planned as a returning character.Literally, the D3 barbarian was the same individual as the D2 barbarian, returning to fight evil twenty years later.During the concluding events of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, the characters defeated , only to learn from Tyrael that the Worldstone had been corrupted and would have to be destroyed.The destruction of the Worldstone caused a shockwave so powerful it blasted Mount Arreat to rubble, destroying the remainder of Baal's army in the process, thus saving the Barbarian lands from its invasion. Arreat laid to complete waste, and the duty that had been theirs for generations was therefore broken.During early development all classes had their skills sorted into 3 skill trees, much as we saw in Diablo 2.The Barbarian's were Battlemaster, Berserker, and Juggernaut.One of the first two classes introduced with Diablo 3, the Barbarian is a powerful melee class that uses fury as a resource.The Barbarian is the only one of the first five characters to use strength for a mainstat and has consistently ranked as one of (or the) most popular class during the first year of Diablo 3.
He's aged twenty years, and he's got a personality in this game.They abandoned their homeland and became nomadic, wandering the lands of Sanctuary and pitching themselves into battle after battle in an effort to forget the pain of their shattered homeland.Abd al-Hazir visited the Barbarian lands and wrote about his experiences and observation in the 25th entry of his writings.Perhaps this is the genesis of the rumors of monstrous things reported to resemble the barbarians in size and ferocity, but that are in reality nothing more than unreasoning, inhuman beasts.Could the destruction of not only their home but also their very beliefs have actually brought this magnificent race so low?It sets the stage for the story we will learn when playing the game.The Barbarians consider it their sworn duty to protect Mount Arreat and the mysterious object within.(Wizards differ only slightly from Sorceresses in Diablo 2.) From Jay Wilson  in 2008, speaking about the Barbarian's concept. Originally we actually planned to have no returning classes, but as we developed the barbarian, it essentially ended up turning into a barbarian.We sort of got to the point where we went – because we actually had a different name for him originally - I think were going to call it this other name and everyone else is just going to call it the barbarian, so maybe we should just call it the barbarian.Lead by Bul-Kathos, the tribes called "barbarians" by the people of the Western Kingdoms united and took upon themselves a sacred duty to protect Mount Arreat and its mystical secrets, until it was destroyed. The Children of Bul-Kathos developed a kinship with the land over the years, and learned to harness the primal energies in nature to enhance their own substantial physical prowess, popularly referred to as "fury".They also developed a spiritual strength that far surpasses most of the living and dead creatures found throughout Sanctuary.
