Barbarian Skills in Diablo 4 are the Skills that the Barbarian use to attack, defend and otherwise face down the minions of hell. Every Class has Basic Skills, Defensive Skills and Ultimate Skills, but the Barbarian has some unique Skills that only he possesses as well. These are Fury Skills, Brawling Skills and Weapon Mastery Skills. This page covers all 6 of these Skills categories, and show all the Skills that Barbarians can use in Diablo IV.

Barbarians use "Fury" to cast some of their Skills, and some Barbarian Skills generate Fury. Balancing the usage of Skills that generate Fury, and those that spend it is key to being successful with the Barbarian Class.
