TACTIK!! Thanks for the updates! Holy shit, I'm super hyped for this season and to give Nullifier a good Hardcore run again, especially with Falter rune changes. The skill itself never felt remotely worth it to me, only with the Skull of Res - now it's a reasonably powerful DPS debuff on it's own.
Anyway, if you have the time, I REALLY want to see how far you can push with the recent as of a few days ago IK buff - 100% to 250%.
The only reason this build has a fighting chance is that IK bonus applying to our procs..this build has always been about the procs. It's time to see those procs go next level with this IK buff.
Some suggestions for swapping around I was thinking about; What if one were to try wielding a good ancient well rolled Schaefer's and DPSing 2 handed, but using Odyn Son as your cube weapon? This is probably the "new season" first option I'll be doing, as we all know how insanely difficult it is to get a "good" Ancient SoH+OS with all the right rolls. If you had a good A-Schaefers, you'd obviously hit less fast and get less crits, but your Odyn Son procs would be absolutely brutal I would think - since it would be based on the 2h weapon damage. Our Ancients (which should be even tougher now thanks to Swords to Plowshares changes) would also appreciate the 2h approach.
I have a love/hate relationship with Overpower for the same reason, it's great DW'ing or 2h'ing, but I imagine it'll hit way harder and be more noticeable with a 2h Schaefers, especially during the Lightning Phase of CoE.
As an aside, I know this is your beta build still, but I don't feel too good about giving up War Cry Impunity (because Hardcore ftw) - there's just no way to fit it in really. Would love to hear how your toughness fares in GR55+ without Impunity or the 40% WotW reduction.
Thanks again for the updates and keep being hardcore!

Yes... on GR 57 + I needed to use war cry. I would have recorded it but the servers crashed and my barb died, so there's no way in hell I'm farming the mats to use cube on 3 items again :)) I'll try that out when the patch goes live. I can know for sure you can clear GR 60 with this build as it is now.
I didn't try with schaeffner's ... but IDK if it's going to work, as there are tons of lost stats that way and less APS => less crits/hits per second = > less heal
So that could be problematic on HC. But we will wait and see on live. I dont have the time to try stuff now, we have to rely on other vids from proper streamers or youtubers.
@ RainbowGandalf : Yes, first thing I do when patch goes live is to try out ALL the builds with the new IK set, not just nullifier.
@ celey : I know, but don't limit yourself on my vids... On hardcore it's very hard to not play with Skul of Resonanse or Aughilds, the survivability and damage bonuses are too great, there are better DPS alternatives I'm sure ...but I can only test them on live.
@ Otaktay Yes, why not, but it will be hard to gear up 3 chars with the gear you need for this build.
@ swebarb Grats ... I was the luckyest bastard ever when I got my ancient SOH in like the first few days if I recall right.
