D4 Tough as Nails (Skill Tree Node)

Tough as Nails (on the Skill Tree), is a Barbarian skill tree node from the Defensive skill tree cluster.

This page specifically talks about Tough as Nails as a node on the skill tree. More detailed discussion on the passive here: D4 Tough as Nails | Barbarian Passive.


Tough as Nails (simplified description): Increase your Thorns by 20%. When enemies hit you, they take an additional 1% of your Thorns as Bleeding damage over 5s.

This is an "passive" skill tree node, which grants the above passive effects to your character.

These skill tree node pages are mainly for internal use. Think of it like a database of sorts! So I just thought why not just make it open to the public. It also serves as a way to funnel people who are looking for certain info (like not needing to discuss enhancement nodes in isolation - but linking them to the parent skill instead)

In any case, here's some hopfully helpful Related Links:
