Leap is a Defensive Barbarian skill, based on Leap and Leap Attack skills from the second game.


When used, causes the Barbarian to leap in the air, landing at the targeted location within 45 yards. Enemies near the impact point suffer Physical damage and are slowed.

Can carry the Barbarian over some types of impassable terrain, as well as enemies and Waller affix barriers. Cannot be used to bypass most solid walls and chasms, but will occasionally work (general rule is that the targeted location must be accessible via reasonable indirect pathing distance). Does not have a minimum range, so one may Leap right atop the enemy next to the Barbarian. When used, breaks any Immobilize effects.


  • Iron Impact: also gain 150% additional Armor for 4 seconds after landing, multiplicative to other similar effects.
  • Launch: enemies within 8 yards of the original location are affected as well, taking 180% damage as Physical and becoming slowed by 60% for 3 seconds. Does not generate extra Fury.
  • Toppling Impact: increases the damage to 450% and send enemies hurtling away from where you land, adding up to 30 yards Knockback.
  • Call of Arreat: radius of the impact blast increases to 16 yards, and affected enemies are pulled towards the Barbarian.
  • Death from Above: affected enemies are also Stunned for 3 seconds.
