Barbarian Paragon Paths

Bear Warrior (PHB 2)

Solid powers and features all around. The Daily power is particularly nice.

Fearbringer Thane (PHB 2)

Meh. The features are just not that impressive.

Frenzied Berserker (PHB 2)

The Warpath PP feature single-handedly slays what could have been a pretty good Paragon Path.

Wildrunner (PHB 2)

Mobility is nice, and this path has a LOT of it.

Multi-class Paragon Paths

Fighter

Draeven Marauder (D 365)

Slippery, and good with a Spear. Not bad.

Dreadnought (MP)

A great path to round your character out on the defensive side of the ball. It hands you +10 max HP right off the bat, as well as strong powers and numerous ways to resist all damage and shake off conditions, which is especially great for the Ragebloods, since their AC, Reflex, and Will all tend to be rather low.

Giantslayer (MP)

Considering that most enemies will be Large or larger, this PP's additional effects will actually see play, making it a very solid choice.

Inner Dragon (MP) - Dragonborn

Dragonborn only, and the features are nothing to write home about, but the powers are fairly strong.

Iron Vanguard (PHB)

Ragebloods have a multitude of push effects, and thus appreciate the strong mix of offense and defense this path has.

Kensei (PHB)

The catch-all path you can swap in for, this offers great features, including an accuracy bonus. The powers kind of suck, but it's still a worthwhile grab.

Pit Fighter (PHB)

Though you're not much for Wisdom, the crazy damage this path adds on a nova turn and the solid overall abilities cannot be ignored.

Polearm Master (MP)

A very powerful control PP, it's a nice choice for Polearm builds.

Warden

Horned Champion (PHB 2)

Great if you want to double as a Defender, and he has multiattacking and stunning built in.

Storm Sentinel (PHB 2)

If raw toughness is what you seek, this is a solid choice. The features are solid, and the Daily power turns you into a Stormwarden. Nice. :D

Warlock

Student of Caiphon (D 366)

Though the Encounter attack power might or might not be useless to you, pick up a Radiant weapon and it doesn't matter anymore.

Warlord

Battlelord of Kord (MP)

Some nice nova-power synergies with Thaneborns.

Racial Paths

Adroit Explorer (PHB 2) - Human

Beautiful recycling benefits (and bonuses for being bloodied up, too). A prime pick.

Beastblooded Minotaur (D 369) - Minotaur

Great control benefits if you're willing to wield a Polearm.

Bloodfury Savage (PHB 2) - Half-orc

You hit like a truck, and you move quick. Nice.

Moonstalker (PHB 2) - Shifter

If you're knocking folk prone a lot, give this a look.

Stoneblessed (PHB 2) - Goliath

Some strong racial support from this path.

Warforged Juggernaut (D 364) - Warforged

A solid Path that emphasizes a charging offense and a strong defense in equal measure.

Wildfire Genasi (FRPG) - Genasi

This racial path's powers and abilities are surprisingly strong.
