In the previous article, we introduced the Mage class. Today, let’s take a look at another class in Tarisland: the Barbarian fighter.
“The dynasty has waned, evil starts to flourish, and we foresee the rise of darkness. The enemy might be formidable, but this is our territory; we shall defend our homeland to death!”
Snow Lion Clan: The Ancient Race of Legend
The North Pole of the world of Tarisland, known as the “Scadino Ice Plains”, is a region of intense cold, full of glaciers and permafrost, with extremely harsh natural conditions.
Hundreds of years ago, a group of humans calling themselves the Northern People migrated here, tenaciously surviving, and gradually established a powerful kingdom known for its alchemy: the Kingdom of Greny. After a battle with the ice dragons, the royal family of the northern people entered into a pact that made the dragons obey them through their bloodline and the holy sword, and they “imprisoned” the dragons in the mountains north of the ice plains. Therefore, humans ruled the ice plains using dragons.
However, as time passed, the dynasty declined, and few people knew that in a corner of the icy plains an ancient species thrived: the Snow Lion Clan. Before humans came to the Scadino Ice Plains, the Snow Lion Clan was widespread in the ice plains. They are skilled in war but prefer peace and are a species with advanced intelligence and independent consciousness. With the expansion of human activity, the Snow Lion Clan, relying on the constant vigilance and wisdom of their ancestors, deliberately avoided human society and gradually withdrew to the southwestern corner of the ice plains.
There are vague records among the northern people about snow lion monsters. Some hunters caught in a blizzard claimed they were saved by snow lions, but were unable to produce any credible evidence. The stories of the Snow Lion Clan gradually became legends.
Bathed in blood, an invincible melee tank
The Snow Lion clan is physically more robust than ordinary lions, with strong muscles, sharp teeth and claws, and has honed top-tier fighting skills and strength. This allows them to simultaneously possess strong defensive power and powerful killing power, capable of both stacking damage and dealing melee damage.
The barbarian is the bravest warrior of the Snow Lion clan, and also the hero and protector in the hearts of the clansmen. The Barbarian’s power comes from the Snow Lion Clan’s totem: the Frost Giant and the Lightning Beast from him. Therefore, in battle, in addition to their own powerful strength, the barbarians can also harness the power of frost and lightning, combined with a frenzied fighting style, making all enemies tremble with fear.
However, the battles of the world of Tarisland do not advocate futile adventure and the sacrifice of lonely braves. Well-coordinated teammates provide timely healing and shields, improving the tankiness of the Barbarian; while the environment created by the barbarian’s departure gives the team the opportunity to quickly take out enemies.
Blood and power, frost and thunder
The barbarian wields the power of frost and thunder, fearless as they bathe in fresh blood. A specialized Frost Mastery barbarian can manipulate the forces of frost into a chilling barrier and weaken enemies, turning the tide of battle and taking control; while one who is focused on Thunder Mastery can channel the force of thunder into a storm, significantly enhancing his own attack, transforming into an unstoppable melee giant.
Frozen Specialization: Hardcore Frost Lion
Frozen Specialization holds the secrets to healing and damage reduction, allowing Frost Barbarians as the team’s frontline tanks to have maximum stamina.
Communicating with the power of the frost elements, the barbarian can command icy barriers and frost weapons, protecting allies and knocking back enemies, and weakening them. His control over the pace of the battlefield often makes them the tacticians of the battlefield.
Different investments in talent have led to various styles of play, such as the technique-focused recovery style. By further upgrading Storm Axe, the bonus health recovery ability is increased. This style uses a “big heart” to face intense battles, staying strong between near death and fast healing, honing a body of steel and a calm mind.
The damage reduction defensive style, on the other hand, chooses to give up its healing ability in exchange for weakening enemies and even more damage reduction. With high defense, they calmly deal with powerful attacks, becoming the team’s diligent guardian.
Thunder Specialization: Frenzied Blood Lion
A barbarian who specializes in Thunder Specialization must control his own savagery and rationality. Once they reach balance in charge and dual energy consumption, the energy transforms into high burst damage, dealing a fatal blow to the enemy.
By channeling thunder to significantly enhance their own attack, the Thunder Barbarians are unstoppable in battle. In a frenzy, they are like the God of Thunder incarnate, laying waste to all evil with their unbreakable melee attacks.
By investing talent points, Thunder Barbarians can choose to strengthen Thunderous Fury to deal large bursts and sustained damage, transforming into an ultimate damage dealer.
They can also choose to enhance their combo ability, using their wild and rational energy to increase damage and attack frequency. His consecutive lightning-fast attacks will inflict immense pain on his enemies.
Also, there are many more building options waiting for everyone to explore and investigate.
In addition to talent skills, barbarians can also freely gather their own class secrets according to their specialization choices and the specific situation they are facing. For example, they can include taunts, interrupts, healing, displacement, control removal, and slow effects. Sophisticated strategy and timing can make these secrets extraordinarily effective in battle, turning the tide of combat.
Frozen and Thunder, as two different talent paths, play different roles in a team. Of course, racial heritage and honor determine that, regardless of choice, the determination and courage ingrained in the barbarian’s bones will become the spirit that will charge into battle and fight valiantly with blood. Every battle is a life or death duel. We will not back down!
