Barbarian Damage Reduction


A barbarian can resist incoming attacks, shrugging off 3% of all damage. This increases by 1% at 5th level and every three barbarian levels thereafter.


  • This reduction was introduced in Update 39 Patch 2 Release Notes, replacing classic Damage Reduction feature of PnP Barbarians.
  • It is a straight percentage of damage reduced before Physical and Magical Resistance Rating calculations.
  • Enhancements in the Barbarian Occult Slayer line increase this by 1% instead of the DR they once increased for a total of 4% available from the tree.
  • Fury of the Wild's passive Damage Reduction increases this absorption by an additional 1% at the third rank.
