Barbarian rage bonus damage applies as if you were wielding a one handed weapon when you use -twohand.

I'm pretty sure that's by design. Using -twohand doesn't give you any of the perks of an actual two-hander weapon except for extra damage from STR.

It could make sense for it to apply here as well though. If this isn't a big, perhaps try a suggestion.

The extra strength damage is probably the main reason that people use two handed weapons in the first place, and seems logically linked to why the barbarian bonus damage when using a two handed weapon is higher. I'm perfectly fine with it being intentional, as this post was more that I wasn't sure whether or not the build team was even aware. The bug forum seemed marginally more appropriate than suggestion as I could easily see the issue simply being overlooked. I wouldn't call it a big deal. Months later I'm still thrilled about -twohand being a thing in the first place and four extra damage in -twohand won't make or break my character.

Don't -twohand scale the barbarian rage damage? I think it does for Ogres, not sure though.
