Diablo 4: The best builds
The best builds I’ve tested myself can be found here in a short summary about the different characters in Diablo 4.

You throw yourself into the enemy with your basic attack, make yourself stronger, more robust and more resource-efficient with your Shout skills and whirl your way through the enemy masses with the Whirlwind.

2-handed ax expertise will be your 1st choice here, as you'll apply Vulnerable to opponents pretty permanently with your core skill, Whirlwind, it's just a permanent damage bonus.

Basic Skills

With your basic skill Lunging Strike you will primarily bridge distance between individual opponents.

Of course, the secondary aspect of the skill is to generate your resource when you run out.

Core Skills

Your core skill Whirlwind will of course be your main source of damage here.

On the one hand, Whirlwind's passive talents allow you to generate Fury the more enemies you hit with the ability, which means that you can simply use the skill longer.

You also inflict a bleeding debuff on your hit enemies.

Pressure point ensures that you also have a chance to apply the Vulnerable debuff to the enemies hit, from which you will benefit from various other passive aspects.

Defensive Skills

On the one hand, your defensive skills would be the Rallying Cry, which will increase your movement speed enormously and also increase your resource generation.

This's passive talents make you unstoppable, so it frees you from stuns and generates extra Fury on top of that.

On the other hand, there would be your Challenging Shout.

This provokes the enemies to attack you, which should be the case anyway, and gives you a lot of damage reduction for the duration.

Its passive talents increase your maximum HP and generate Fury every time you get hit.
