S9 (2.4.3) Barbarian Fastest Speed Farming Build

Hey! Welcome to our Barbarian Best Speed Farming Builds Guide. We will be updating this based on what are the best speedfarming build(s), and talk about adjustments for various farming types. All I can say is these days it’s “SPIN 2 WIN”.

(Raekor based speed farming is now OBSOLETE, IMO, replaced by the brainless playstyle, one-button ownage of Whirlwind based builds. We will archive Raekor Speed builds in Page 2)

We suggest you read these resources on speedfarming:
D3 General Speedfarming, Barbarian Speedfarming Primer.

Barb Whirlwind Speedfarming Rerolls and stat priority

Note that these are kinda loose, and MAY not incompatible for high-end Greater Rifts. A notable difference is that Wastes builds want a lot more CDR. These rolls generally apply to both builds – more specific notes below (especially for weapon).

Barb Speedfarming General Rerolls & Stat Priority
Head STR VIT CHC WW% Any
Shldr STR VIT RES CDR Life% AD
Chest STR VIT RES Life% Any
Hands STR VIT CHC CHD CDR Any
Legs STR VIT RES

Wrist Phys% STR VIT CHC RES LPH
Neck Phys% STR VIT CHC RES LPH
Rings STR CHC CHD CDR Any
Main SEE NOTES! STR VIT LpFS/pH CDR
Off SEE NOTES! STR VIT LpFS/pH CDR

Area Damage on gear ain’t so good in TXIII or less content.

 

Barb Speedfarming builds Options, Notes & Reroll FAQ

What happened to Charge / Raekor Speed Farming!?

Wastes is just “better” at everything. The base movespeed is just godlike, you don’t press too many buttons. Ultimately their speed in farming is comparable… but my personal preference (and I 100% think it inches above R4 in speed). It’s still viable, I just don’t like the playstle. (Raekor builds archived in Page 2)

Which build is better? IK WW or Wastes WW?

Okay each set definitely has pros and cons. I chose IKWW as the “base” set because it’s super easy to build up.

Of course there are obvious exceptions like, for example, you’re tryharding GR’s with W6 and you have an augmented set – use that!

Rerolling your weapons…

For Wastes: you might want CDR because if you ever tryhard with this set, you’d want your ancient with CDR on it. Otherwise

For IK: Go ham with DAMAGE%, or recovery stats. The only reason you’d want CDR is for some hybrid Ignore Pain – Mob Rule group build. Just “do whatever you want”. But strictly for speed farming, DMG% is not a bad choice.

Life per Fury Spent, Life per Hit? These are always welcome. They’re super noticeable especially for the IK build which lacks Blood Funnel and Ignore Pain – Ignorance is Bliss. I’d say they’re much more important to have with the IK setup.

Legendary Gem Options

Boon of the Hoarder is your “open” slot and if you’re looking to farm GR’s or increase your rift speed you can replace it with another offensive gem. It’s never bad to have Bane of the Powerful on hand as a brainless replacement.

For Wastes: Lemme tell you my secret – GOGOK OF SWIFTNESS IS YOUR SECRET WEAPON. It takes care of your difficult CDR, gives a flat 15% ASPD (which would otherwise only be on after 5x bleeding enemies via Pain Enhancer) and some dodge. I find that for speedfarming or lower difficulty content, Gogok > Pain Enhancer.

For IK: Use whatever the hell you want in place of Hoarder! Go crazy with Miranae, Teardrop of the Starweaver. Or Wreath of Lightning for more speed! The base damage increase of IK6 is massive – these gems WILL do some semblance of real damage. But again, Powerful is always a comfort choice.

Hopefully this guide will help you with your Barb speed runs! May Bul-kathos guide your hand! If you’re going in circles thanks to the build, consider supporting us on Patreon! Like us on Facebook for more updates!
