About This Content

Hailing from the dense jungle lands far to the south, the Barbarian is a masterful fighter who can wield two melee weapons simultaneously and unleash devastating combos! Using five distinct fighting stances instead of towers, the Barbarian is able to adapt to any combat situation. His Battle Leap ability allows him to instantly close the distance to a far-off target, while his Battle Pound ability will decimate any nearby enemies. If massive damage and incredible destruction are what you seek, the Barbarian is the hero for the job!

Discover new ways to dominate the battlefield by combining any two of these fighting stances simultaneously:

  • Tornado Stance Run faster, attack quicker, jump higher, and push back enemies with a flurry of quick, low damage attacks.
  • Lightning Stance Use the power of lightning to stun your enemies as your attacks make contact, while taking a small amount of damage for each hit.
  • Siphon Stance Sacrifice some of your resistances to steal life from your enemies as you damage them.
  • Turtle Stance Enter this protective stance to greatly increase your resistances, but reduce your movement speed and jump height.
  • Hawk Stance Summon the powers of the mighty hawk to deal a massive amount of damage in your next attack.

Or using these powerful abilities:

  • Battle Leap Ability This ability allows the Barbarian to quickly close the distance to far-off enemies with a powerful leap attack.
  • Battle Pound Ability This is powerful radial ability allows the Barbarian to decimate any nearby enemies.

This DLC nay deserve a better review than the game itself.

IMO, Dungeon Defenders, the main game itself, deserves a mixed review.

It's allegedly a tower defense, but mostly becomes a mindless grind.

The Barbarian, though, makes no pretense of towers and long-term strategy,
so you get exactly what you bargain for.

If you're tired of the mindless grind getting boring, and want a slightly
more interesting to way to shut off your brain and beat the heck out of
stuff up close and personal, rather than spinning in place and firing,
this DLC is the way to go.

On the other hand, if you are grinding XP or mana, or want to help a friend,
the Barbarian's combat really doesn't seem to be able to compete with the
effecctiveness of ranged weapons... so the promo about "help your friends"
and "do more damage" is pretty wrong.

The descriptions of the stances seem leave out the fact that every one of them
has a downside, and although I'm certainly no expert on his use, normal seems fine
rather than picking a stance that either reduces your damage, attack speed, or ability
to survive damage.

If your really into having different characters to control in this game then this is the DLC for you. This is the Barbarian that wields 2 melee weapons at one time, its tower defense is very strong and its a hoot to have this guy yell at those Orc's while killing them. You can use this character to wield 2 different melee weapons which can be fun to mix and match each weapon with him. This DLC doesn't add alot to the game, just a new character to customize and play with. I have liked using the Barbarian but it doesn't always suit my fancy. There isn't much more to say about this DLC other then get it if your really into this game and want to have all the available characters at your disposal. Get it and dont regret it.

The Barbarian is by far my favorite class why you ask?
-Instead of towers focuses on stances that increase his attack speed,damage,etc.

-Friends having trouble on a mission? Go Barbarian! It's so rewarding when you plow through enemies like a lawnmower

- He has alot of useful skills like being able to leap long distances and slam the ground with alot of damage

- His design is awesome reminds of me of conan XD

- Sadly, even with the high damage attacks he is very fragile which lead to many deaths i suggest to roll with some health if you manage to buy and play him.

- Barbarian relys on his stances 24/7 and use huge chunks of your mana, You will be scavenging for mana like a hobo searching for leftovers. Trust me YOU WILL DIE WITHOUT THEM put some into your mana stat.

- He can be helpful, but alot of the players are kill greedy and get upset when you take all the glory. PREPARE FOR KICKS

Rating: 8/10
Yes Barbarian may have flaws, But he the most Highest DPS Class in the game Besides Jester and Knight. I've played this class almost all the time for the fun rewarding hack and slash play style, If you prefer to get out there and kick ♥♥♥ with a few stances instead of building defenses and camping
the barbarian is for you.

*Next wave song plays* Now excuse brothers and sisters *Picks up axes* I got some slaughtering to do....
