The Whirlwind Barbarian

The Whirlwind Barbarian is the most popular Barbarian build at max level. There are two very good reasons for that: it does the most damage and it isn’t that hard to gear for. The basic idea is to utilize high critical hit chance and the high tick rate of Whirlwind to proc the Into the Fray skill rune. That gives infinite Fury, allowing Whirlwind to be used constantly and making the Wrath of the Berserker buff permanently active.

The Critical Mass / Wicked Wind Wizard is the current max DPS Wizard build. It is commonly abbreviated as CM/WW.

This is the cookie cutter Monk build for max DPS. While it’s not the most fun build to play, it is definitely the most efficient. You will do more damage than any other build and much easier to. You pretty much just hold one button down the whole time while spamming damage buffing skills. Still, it’s definitely a flashy build. Anyone that sees you will know immediately what build you are using, and it does look pretty cool despite not being the most fun to play. A little critical hit chance is required for the build to work properly, but outside of that it’s a cheap build to gear for.
