The storm is here…
[i]If you’ve ever wondered how to tap into the true power of Ultos it’s through Primal Strike.To compare, I am going to relate the build to the physical “brother” of the build Avenger. While PS is not really an Auto attack it kind of feels like it. It’s not like Force Wave which can be spammed without an enemy. You need to engage an enemy in melee and has the melee feel.
The AoE and damage consistency of PS is fantastic. While it doesn’t reach the max dmg potential of Avenger, it more than makes up for it in consistency. The main skill hits in readius AoE and to this you add Torrent and Hand of Ultos %weapon dmg, cutting corners and annihilating swaths of enemies, including grouped Nemeses.[/i]
[v184.108.40.206]Video 150-170 Gladiator: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSIu81k6VJQ&feature=youtu.be b [/b]I generally get 8:40 but recording lag has a word to say as usual:)
Setup with Potent Malmouth Will used in the video. Real AS is 184% as GT does not show Storm Touched bonus
All auras, Tenacity, Sealed Fate, Hungering Void up
Setup with Potent Ravager’s Eye
Supercharged Primal Strike
- A look at PS with transmuter:
At lvl 26 PS has 300% WD. With transmuter we shave 18% total dmg, means nothing since you spam it and 75%WD leaving us with 225%WD
With Torrent now hitting the main target and Hand of Ultos bound to PS you get another 70% WD, leaving you at 290% WD per swing, 266% is Ultos desn’t proc.
Still not convinced? Read on then
- Savagery Charging PS:
Whoever said you can’t have the best of both worlds? Treating Savagery like Lethal Assault, charging it every 2 seconds or so until you get a few charges (3-4-5-6 are enough) gives enormous benefit in DPS and staying power. I never think about it in the video, just press Savagery from time to time to charge it and proc Hungering Void, don’t stress or ever waste your focus on how many charges you have ever!.
What effects the build gets from charging it:
- 135/103 OA/DA and 28% Slow res from tenacity
- 8% Physical Damage resistance from Might of The bear
- 11% Attack speed from Storm Touched with just 4 points invested
- A minor 38% lightning damage from main skill
When you add up all of the above, that transmuter is pocket change compared to the benefits of spamming PS - max
[spoiler]Q: So what other Class combo do you…
Q: Yes but how about…
“Q”: Fuck you!
[i]If the Avenger has the highest dmg roll and phenomenal staying power, this build makes up with extremely consistent dmg and lifestealing via PS/Torrent/Hand of Ultos. Nothing can hide if in PS radius. Play it agressive and position it well. With the mobility Rune augments in FG, this build will be even more fun to use,
Notice at 160 when the second reaper comes I use the space the first Reaper and the left side spawn point entrance to confuse the second one. Nemeses always try the shortest route to you and if they don’t fit they get all confused:)
By the way, Dummy kill time is exactly 20-21 sec, precicesly teh duration of Hungering void;)[/i]
