Easy to way to avoid that is after Halion uses Ring of Steel (around 1-2 seconds after), he casts the poison bomb like clockwork. Unless you somehow interrupt his cast. So just time running away after his RoS cast and he’ll throw it at his feet (or wherever you happen to be standing) and you’ll never get hit by it again.
@Dekaron Yeah…first time I came up against Barmanu was on my first toon, an ADctH DW Harbinger. Had loads of lifesteal, -armour, -resists and had no real issues with anything up to that point. So I just stood there smacking him in the face and I got annihilated on his first cast.
If it’s the same one I’m thinking of, it has the same poison attack that Gastris the Foul has, the one that shoguns. I don’t recall it ever spawning for me except on Ultimate, though I may be wrong about that.
That hero has a poison attack where it throws three poison projectiles that when they hit the ground divide into three projectiles each. I had 60% poison resist and just getting hit by one poison bomb would deal nearly 2k poison DOT for 6 secs.
The funny thing is that when i went there with my Witchblade i had a much easier time because i already knew how to deal with it. Doesn’t take the fact that the attack deals a little too much damage and covers a wide area.
