Can I solo mp10 ubers?

  • #1
    Hey guys,

    I am trying to imprive this barb the most I can so Im able to do ubers mp10 in solo, and eventually carrying a friend. My problem is I dont know if I "should" be able to gearwise right now, and If not, what Can I improve?
    Im still having troubles on some packs on mp9 and wonder if I lack of something I cant see, or if its normal that some hard affixes still gives troubles.

    I use sprint for key run/ and mostly use warcry impunity for ubers. I tried rend and felt like even with the life steal bonus, it wasnt as good as warcry.

    PS: I have trouble with WOTB uptime on siege/ZK fight too...

    I find it a little silly to ask someone else if you can do something with your character, but here are some things ive come across.

    For a barbar soloing the ubers on mp10 completely comes down to how your able to deal with the Siege+Kulle fight. The fight is ridiculously RNG based and can bug out a lot which will result in complete failure.

    You will want a hp pool of at least 60k and the damage supression from armor and resistances to be atleast equal. When you have this you should not die just because siegebreaker picks you up and kulle nukes you with the stone rain and a fireball. After that it all comes down to execution.

    While there are different ways of doing the event, I and many others prefer to deal with Kulle before Siegebreaker. You need to keep doing damage to Kulle every time he pops out, while trying to avoid Siegebreakers pickup ability. Its essential you keep giving him trouble because as soon as you start giving him space he will catch you in a slow or corner or something that will get you either stuck or instagibbed.

    Another thing that caught my eye is that your using the chance to freeze bow and neck on your scoundrel which is a veery bad idea for the siege+kulle fight. If Siegebreaker picks you up and your scoundrel freezes him, the ability starts from zero and you will probably be paralyzed in his hand until you die from two stone rains. However I strongly recommend that you buy a high vitality Maximus and a cold damage tal rasha neck for your enchantress because while you hunt down kulle, she will keep slowing siegebreaker down and the demon summoned from Maximus actually tanks and soaks cleaves like a beast which will buy you a ton of time.

    You can survive it, absolutely. I can tell because i did it with nearly identical defenses while ago. Your dps might be a bit low, but adding 24% from SoJ ... maybe its fine, i can't tell.
    So now it all comes down to playing well. Take the advice from the above poster. Just to add, SK/Magda can kill you in a second. Pay good attention to SK's spinning ability and Magdhas swarm.

    Btw. you can use sprint with the dodge rune for ubers if you feel like that would be better for you. Makes avoiding things easier, but won't have a high uptime, while war cry is the best choice for pure defense.

    Thx for advices, Ill try that for the Chantress, As for the 60k hp, I might be able but I'll have to take off some strenght gem I guess!
    I'll have to work on my playstyle in MP 8-9 before I go for 10 probably !

    That high HP is not needed at all. You're better of with high reductions and especially higher dps, which in turn heals you more from all that lifesteal you have.

    Try doing it the easy way, spec hota/rend and ubers dont even hurt. For me, your gear seems just fine for mp10 ubers.

    Hey I just looked up your armory build....how do you like using Overpower/Rend as opposed to War Cry and WOTB? Is it an increase in dps for you and survivability? I know that war cry provides tons of resists just wondering if you can take a look at my build and see if I can handle your spec too, looks very good : here is my info hope to hear back from you soon!

    The build I have right now Bash/ww - Sprint/battle rage/overpower/rend - Is for low Mp farming run, I do them in mp3, And I just CANT keep WOTB up even in mp3, things die way to fast, So the fastest way I can go was that way, overpower and momemtum for massive fury gained, and rend for elites pack. I dont need any defensive skill at such low MPS.

    As for Ubers, I use overpower with crushing advance for the 35% reflect dmg (which is IMO the best defensive you can take, as its always up) And I switch sometimes from War Cry to Rend, depends how I feel, Defensive-wise War cry wins, but Rend helps with the DPS a lot, and give some LS if u are in bad situation where u cant hit anything. WOTB is mandatory for highers MPS with HOTA.

    I looked at your build, And I didnt try Witching hour yet, but I guarantee that the 3%LS from IK is REALLY worth it. It smooths out everything you do by a lot. ( I tried removing bloodthirst and didnt like it.) Im not sure what are your true resistance value, but I didnt feel comfortable until I had 650+ everywhere, and 700+ in physical and fire res. I probably overpaid most of my gear just to get those value, but my gameplay changed by a lot. I can tank molten/reflect dmg without noticing something hurts me. Gets a bit harder when Im cursed by succubus but o well :P.

    It is mostly how you like to play, I prefered the way when I can farm and watch my kids at the same time, it did hurt my dps a bit, I should be well over 200k with the gold I throwed in that barb, but my survivability would'nt be that great. Your barb looks very great, it now comes to you to choose which way you wanna play it !

    If I missed something about your post, Ill be happy to answer u back !

    PS: Dps on profile shows 214k but thats with battle rage, should show around 180k.

    Hey there, I had an Ik belt with 180 str/80 all resist and was using 4 piece for a while....i switched to witching hour because i gained about 14k damage unbuffed (YES it gains that much) and I tried out a few different armors since then like tal rasha for attack speed but overall i switched back to IK armor. As far as my resistances now when I'm buffed i believe my lowest across all of them is 672 and i think my highest is 764? Somewhere around there. I feel like MP5/6 is probably my limit as far as clearing the fastest on higher difficulty although I can handle MP10 just takes longer. I guess also what I'm wondering is, is my chance at finding better items that noticeable on mp5/6 as opposed to mp1/2? I clear super fast on mp1/2 but also I'm looking at finding great items/fast xp. Without the IK belt right now I'm at 5.90% LS and I read that anything over 6% is overkill (5.80% LS is what i was told to have minimum) I guess ill try tonight your build without war cry and let you know how it goes :)

    Also : should i keep at it with mp10 clears even though it may take me two or three times as long with a better chance at finding legendaries? or would you recommend just sticking with lower mp for fast runs

    For xp/item farming, I do the higher MP I can, while killing white mobs with only tornadoes. I took rend to kill elites faster, because they can be annoying with the extra hp mp gives them. Couple that with shielding or extra health on fleeing monster and it can be a pain, so rend handle that. I read that thing too about the 6%, I should give another try with another passive than bloodthirst now that I switched my offhand. (I had a slower offhand with LS), that may be the difference.

    Keep higher MP for key and uber runs, and low mp for fast xp and item farming. OFC if u enjoy the challenge, you can play higher mp just for the fun of it, I often do some mp8/9 full act clear run just for fun, not efficient, and I didnt really notice a difference in drops.
