Earthquake is a Rage Barbarian skill.


When invoked, creates a patch of molten fissures in the ground that remains in there (does not follow the Barbarian) and deals damage to enemies standing in it.


  • Giant's Stride: 20 secondary tremors (one every 0.4 seconds) appear beneath the Barbarian's feet, following his or her movement. Each tremor is roughly 6 yards in radius and deals 300% damage as Fire at once, disappearing immediately afterwards.
  • Chilling Earth: damage type changes to Cold and affected enemies are also Frozen for the entire duration.
  • The Mountain's Call: damage type changes to Lightning, removes the Fury cost and reduces the cooldown to 30 seconds.
  • Molten Fury: increases damage to 6000% as Fire over 8 seconds.
  • Cave-In: damage type changes to Physical, and when the Earthquake is cast, all enemies within 24 yards are pulled towards the Barbarian.

Non-rune enhancementsEdit


  • Earthen Might: Earthquake generates 30 Fury when cast (but after the normal cost, if any, is subtracted).
  • Boon of Bul-Kathos: reduces cooldown by 15 seconds.
