Paragon tables and glyphs can be a little tricky to understand at first. It is a matter of adjusting the tables so that they connect properly. Not all players may reach the maximum 200 Paragon points, but those who do will find that their powers are greatly enhanced.

While it would be tedious and hard to read to list all the nodes, moving between the main nodes mentioned should not be a problem. Be sure to acquire all relevant nodes that grant stat bonuses within the areas designated by the glyphs.

Naturally, for a build focused on bleed damage, most of the Paragon points should be invested in the Hemorrhage and Blood Rage tables. Don’t forget that bleed is not a magical effect, it is physical, so it will increase with nodes that offer an increase in physical damage.


  • Chest: Razorplate (Slashing Plates)
  • Gloves: Skullbreaker’s Aspect (Skullbreaker’s Aspect).
  • Trousers: Iron Blood Aspect (Iron Blood Aspect)
  • Boots: Aspect of Anemia
  • Amulet: Weapon Master’s Aspect
  • Ring: Aspect of Encroaching Wrath
  • Ring: Needleflare Aspect
  • Two-Handed Slashing: Ancients’ Oath
  • Two-Handed Bludgeoning: Edgemaster’s Aspect
  • Primary Hand: Ramaladni’s Magnum Opus (Ramaladni’s Magna Opus)
  • Secondary Hand: Doombringer (Bringer of Doom)

With the new skin system, players have a lot of freedom to choose the pieces of equipment with the best stats and then add their favourite effect to them. Increasing the efficiency of potions helps a bit, but these skins are truly game-changing. Note that some of these aspects can be swapped into other pieces of equipment; it doesn’t matter which piece has which aspect.

The Ancients’ Oath casts additional chains with Steel Grasp, so make sure you have this weapon equipped when using that ability. Following this build, you will have three casts of the ability and no chance of your opponent escaping. The rest of the kit emphasises the excellent bleed damage and offers a bit more return damage to opponents who make the mistake of engaging the Barbarian directly in PvP.


Two-Handed Sword Expertise

World Levels can become unmanageable in terms of difficulty. Fortunately, techniques are an easy way to keep up with the increasing challenge. Expertise with the Two-Handed Sword adds 20% bleed damage to all attacks, which further increases damage over time on targets struggling to escape.

For this reason, the two-handed sword should be the default weapon when the skill allows a choice of weapons. With this build, only Maelstrom uses other weapons (although the two-handed sword is also used along with the others).
