Class-specific items are much like other items. They have a variety of stats and types, can be found magical, Rare, Unique, and sometimes in Sets as well. The real difference is that these items can only be used by one character class, and they can have random bonuses to individual skills, much like the ones you see on wands/staves/scepters in Diablo II. This is in contrast with magic items possessing class-specific Skill Level and Barbarian Skill Tree prefixes, which may be used by classes other than the Barbarian without benefiting from the skill modifiers.

Barbarians get Primal Helms in the Expansion. These are helms with magical stats like any other headgear, and the ability to have special +to barbarian skills, as well as +to all Barb skills. Barbarians can wear them or not, it all depends on the stats found on them. A really good rare or unique helm is going to beat most barb-helms, but the possible dream mods on a Barb-helm are the best you can find.

You cannot gamble any Primal Helms in the Expansion, they must be found.

Inherent Bonuses

Any Barbarian helm may have +1-3 points in up to 3 individual skills from all three of his skill trees, Combat Skills, Warcries, and Combat Masteries, from Clvl 1 up to the Clvl 30 skills. The bug where no Clvl 30 skills would occur in Diablo II has been fixed in the Expansion. These random +skills work just like the bonuses you see on wands/scepters/staves in Diablo II, and can occur on normal, magical, and Rare items.

  • Item Level: Used in many in-game calculations. Monsters must be of this level to drop the item, and it factors in when you get to gamble for this item type as well. See all the Mlvls on Darkness.
  • Clvl req : Character level you must be to equip this item.
  • The hue and color of base items in Diablo II can vary greatly, depending on the item's modifiers.

* One of the best helms in the game. Huge bonuses to everything useful for a Barbarian, and only the lack of Magic Find and/or physical damage reduction makes it the hat every barbarian wants best. This hat is relatively high level for an exceptional item TC 54, and is pretty hard to find. It has a huge trade value, so if you aren't going to use it, you should try to get something good in return.

  • Bul-Kathos' Children is designed for a Barbarian. Although there are no class specific items in this set, only a Barbarian can complete it due to his innate dual-wielding ability allowing him to use two two-handed swords at once.
