Diablo 3 – PTR 2.2 – Barbarian G40+ IK Pure Pet Build

Hey guys, today I want to show you the changes to the (now very powerful) Immortal King’s set with a proof of concept pure pet build. I never thought I’d see the day a Barb can solo G40+ without attacking anything, but it’s possible and I show it in this video – PermaWrath, Taskers, 45% CotA damage, etc.

Please keep in mind that this is not a final build by any means, but rather an exploration of what a relatively optimized pet-centric build is capable of. At higher tiers Ancients still suffer a quick death by certain affixes, but you can rest assured that some part of the IK set will be used in most Barb builds moving forward – Raekor’s, Earthquake, and Wrath. Enjoy and be on the lookout for further optimization and an exploration of various hybrid builds!

Legendary gems: Pain Enhancer, Enforcer, Bane of the Powerful

  1. I hate blizz approach in d3. Every build is based on some set. So if you are like me, don't play much and have no luck, you can't even get to t6 or gr20-25+. Also every single on of these super op, set-based builds is boring as fu**. Your gameplay should not be limited by your gear this much.. bad design imo.
    Like in this video.. running around waiting for everything to get killed omg.. how is this fun??

  2. this was nerfed already in PTR..2 bonus: perma ancients; 4 bonus: everytime u spend 10 fury your CotA and Berserker Cd is reduced by 3 secs; 6 bonus: 500%WD on your Ancients..yeah its still very good but not as good as the previous one( this one)…its really boring cuz your main focus now is just spend max fury as possible to activate ur berserker while your pets kill everything..meh

  3. I'm oozing with anticipation. I am glad they are focusing on ppl sticking together also instead of power-rushing through every level while leaving everyone behind….. Even though…. I feel Restraint rings new set bonus of 150% increased all damage may still keep Raekors going. …… I digress >.>

  4. love your videos but this build looks so boring I don't even see the point in playing the game if your just running around doing nothing I really hope they change this set somehow :

  5. I really hope they change this.
    No one should be able to do lvl 40 GR's without doing anything.
    Every time they introduce something new it's always overpowered in my opinion. People used to complain that jade was to powerful but now it seems like a pretty weak set compared to the new reakors, immortal kings, marauders and monk sets.
    Is it that hard to balance these classes?

  6. About time to make the ancient barbarians powerful. This definitely is a viable build in the higher GRifts. Time to play my good 'ol barbarian again. Looking forward to this in 2.2.. Thanks for the awesome vid! 🙂

  7. If you used a skull grasp ring instead of the unity for the 400-450% increased damage to whirlwind. Then used the blood funnel rune, and also used the Ancients Fury rune for Ancients. Would you not generate enough fury to be able to perma-WW and also keep your ancients fully healed during any kinds of crazy damage?
