[Ω] The Nephalem Nuke

Post by MUS01 on Thu Dec 20, 2012 2:49 pm

[OMEGA]The Nephalem Nuke Crushing Blow kraken stance Barbarian by Grizz B


An over the top damage dealing barbarian focusing on huge tri elemental damage and 100% CB to deal damage with very little actually weapon damage.

-HUGE dmg and killspeed
- 100% CB and huge + 90k elemental dmg
-quad type dmg- physical/ lighting/fire/cold also good psn on switch
-one shot most enemies in the game throughout the game (have I mentioned how good the damage is?)
- decent amounts of life (24k) and great defense (1kk) (can also switch for max block instead of high life)
- easy to play untwinked (Easily playable w/o SUs and strong the whole game, I accidentally over MO’d my armor and pwned w/o it for 10 levels)

- AoE?
-low block (but can switch dex and vit for max block but lower life)

Strength : enough for gear
Dexterity : 0 end game (w/ charms) or enough for 25 k attack rating (95% chance to hit) (can choose to max for block instead of life)
Vitality : rest (endgame we got enough dmg)
Energy : 0 (we are not casters)

MO boots/ gloves/ helm w/ -enemy res. (w/ 2 crafts its possible to reach – 100 tri elemental)
MO weapon:%CB /armor: ED

Storm Blast
Stormblast is 3/4wdm attack that extends lighting submissles infront of the direction attack about 40 yards. The attack converts all physical dmg to lighting (yay for –res). The submissles have no ND (hit 25 times a second) and carry any other non physical damage (airhman/badmoon/kraken- elemental damage and crushing blow) is applied to its submissles.

Kraken Stance
Kraken stance is old barb uber skill that synergizes with (2% tri elemental) with point in other stances. While pumping synergies you can easily get 3-14k tri elemental dmg (10-41k elemental dmg, 18 to 80k w/ -res ) damage carried over stormblast with no ND (25times a second each)

Crushing Blow
Reduces enemy’s life total by 1/8 of current amount. Having 100% CB on an attack that hits 25times + procs absolutely wrecks mobs

WTF you have no weapon wdm
True who needs weapon damage when you have 100% CB and -100 tri elemental enemy res with 10 to 41 k tri elemental damage (x2 for minus res) hitting more than (procs) 25 times second without ND

Here are the crafts I used

My minus res and %CB

How to play
- cast wolves / thundergod / lightning arena
-move up to enemy with switch gear on (mammen axe and snake stance)
-thunderslam to psn/slow/stun all (if your are going to switch skill to thunderslam a crowd you might as well weapon switch to more ideal gearing/stance)
-switch back to main (kraken stance/knife/storm blast)
-One shot everything


Dungeon uberquests

Creature of flame

- One shot . one stormblast

Infernal machine

- same as above , no problem at all . Stormblast to the victory

Death projector

- lure away some of the Mechanics so you won't get surrounded by them when you attack the projector, psn it then one stormblast should do the trick and you can have that nice charm


- jump into the middle of the map using blink or jitan's gate and go to town. Wait for timer, come back and thunderslam crowd to psn azmo then clean up with Stormblast

Rathma square

- kill the Crawlers on your way to Primus , keep moving and primus should easily get taken down.

Cathedral of vanity
- same strategy as for the Death projector . Lure a part of the Nuns the entrance room and blink over the wall in the big room; wait for the first beam to complete a rotation then get behind the Crystall ball, and stormblast it. When immunities go off, kill the nuns and Inarius with stormblast, then summon Inarius's ghost , kill it and take the charm


-Your are not a summoner so your Edyrems suck here but your snake stance can offer them slow and psn enemies hard once enemies drop
-When immunities drops mobs die quick.
-Kill the Celebrants and Morlus on your way and keep on summoning more Edyrems (if they die) to remove immunities . Use stormblast to rape Lilth then transmute your Medallion


- wolfstance for the win!!! Rush to MCS and purify him, pick up CFS and save & exit
- if you really wanted you cold fight your way there too…its easy now

Summoning uberquests
Lay down one point fortress before summoning

The Butcher

- stormblast

The binding of Baal

- 1pt fortress helps u kill him from afar. ..stormblast ones shots rest

Assault on mount Arreat

- stormblast insta rapes all


- no problem out DPSsing his healing…. stormblast

Lord Aldric Jitan

-dark summon in that hallway and enter the Halls of anguish, tp home and enter Anya's red portal so you can get behind them. stormblast them from range and lookout for the singularities on death. So keep fortressing and switching to kraken in the beginning of the hall. If any follow you out fine…kite them and fortress will win

Legacy of blood

- the opponents need to hit something (your summons) to remove their immunities .
- Flash to snake to slow and switch to eagle and tank while getting out. As soon as immunities drop, switch to stormblast they are dead

Judgement day

- feed Dark Uldyssian with lol summons and will summon the avatars. They die very fast from stormblast/ fortress

Brother Laz

- reroll the map until one of the 2 shrines that spawn in there is a FIRE shrine
- kill all monsters in Swampy pit level 1 and level 2 and open portal at entrance for level 3
- kill the Death projector and lure the Mechanics in the opposite corner
- summon edyrem to keep the Groupies a bit busy
- let your gear in base, dark summon near fire shrine and use the fire explosion to lower Laz's life to half . you will die after this but it's ok - your gear is in base
- equip only an Assur's bane and go back . Summon edyrem advance step by step casting until Laz will jump on top of you . Cast Purify and it will lower his life to less than 1/4 (wait few seconds for purify to do full damage and after that hit escape button). you will die again after this but it's ok . the gear is still in base
- equip all gear you left in base , and a new ASSUR'S bane . go back summon army and approach w/ edyrems, purify Laz and Voila! Kill the groupies with Stormblast



- easy farmable at "/players 8" . Stormblast a totem and win. Also can switch to bear to just remove immunities


- the place for farming for gold (socket some tir runes) . Lucion and Malic are easy to kill. Typical Snake slam (aoe over dmg to kill invisibles) and switch to Stormblast


- same as k3kba , just a potential farming spot .

Tran Athula

- A good farming spot until you can farm Duncraig. Find a zon and snake slam her.. Mow through them w/ stormblast


- HUGE tri ele dmg means immunities are not a problem and huge %CB melts neons fiends….steam roll this


- summon the edryems to tank, switch to bear/eagle
- use stormblast to kill the howling toads and spray procs

Kingdom of Shadow

-prebuff pots/ put on spiritwalkers with 4 p turquoise
-1 pt wolf stance
- enter Ureh and rush to the bridge zig-zag-ing through the citizens
- once you got to the bridge , portal home , switch bear, enter portal ,summon all you got (edyrems) , re-enter ureh portal and use jitan's gate to jump as far as possible . summons will distract citizens from hitting you and you can open new portal , go to town , re-summon all army go back . repeat till you get to Juris Khan then rape him
if you have troubles stack some more def and %DR / frw


- The ultimate farming spot, and we can one shot everyone here!!! Yay!!! Slam slow and stormblast mobs. It is actually one of the easier ubers for him

Heroic levels
-Huge elemental damage on all elements( Kraken ) w/ -100 res all not a problem
-may be helpful to switch judge’s sin for Avatar RW for more minus res

Heroic Bosses

-summon him in a corner then destroy w/ Stormblast kraken

Bull prince rodeo

- prefortress
- melt his face with Stormblast/kraken

Qov tsin

- gear check uber : stack 500% all resist and get 95% all resists increasing the max resists with 20% . to do this you will get Thai runes in your sockets , change the gear with 2 out of those 3 : Witchhunter's hood , SU spirit walker , SU nor tiraj's wisdom . I went for the first two + 2x perfect turquoise
- kill all monsters inside the stony tomb and Summon Qov Tsin
-potion stack and switch eagle to tank
- melt his face with stormblast
- piece of cake if you got the proper gear


Less AoE actually helps us here
Once immunities drop its quick

Like I say in my fortress barbarian guide, this guide maked by Grizz B in the old forum inspired(among other guides) my char...
OFC is a bit outdated in certain features, like SB wpdm modifier is now 1/2 instead 3/4.. But overall is an great guide, very detailed like tou can see.

Cheers, and I edit the guide, and fix the skill plans in the day, cause I need manually input. Certain images, etc... I need opinions, cause I think wich this char is good and can be developed in Sigma. OFC, I don't know what changes(only which KS retur as uber, and KS don't have sinergies...) but the overall idea is here.

edit: Fixed errors, and linking in the Fortress Barbarian as reference...

Cause RM+KS is an imba combo. It's superior to KS builds(old version with only SG as defense source, and only 1 stance+RM combo.

With only KS(or NW) the char defence is low....You're very vulnerable to damage, like happen with my char..I MEAN, YOU CAN'T TANK VIZJUN, for example. Playin with 300k of defense, 500k 0r 1M of defense are VERY diferents situations in Median. In fact, I'm farming for my Natasha Legacy in Ancient Armor for reach almost 500k of defense with Ultimative passive oskill.

With RM as uber you reach with simple boody armor like SOTS 1M of defense. I remember wich my barb has 1.3 M with no dedicated defense items. Ohh and using the KS helm you gain the insane ele dam of KS. An average char with great damage and great defense is better wich an Glass Cannon build as, let me say, Static frenzy Bowazon (for me at least)

Of course, you can go with NW, BUT KS already gives great damage, and in Median damage isn't all. Survability is important too. barb build don't have enough defense with 300-350k. 500 k is an decent amount and with only SG you don't reach that amount.

I still play league with grizzb time to time. I think a more updated fortress/kraken stance barb would be gzuppls krakenfart.

Krakenstance helm
Ultimative armor
Gulags Friendzy gloves
Marks project boots
4x poison rune in barb shield
Tu6 Glaive
dyers eve ammy
2x bmr rings

maybe i make guide and tell more about skills and etc. semi expensive build but it's awesome for cheesing summoning ubers and dunc/fauzt
you can reach max block with this character
Ancient Fungus
