Hulk Smash! build

edited June 14 in HULK

Hey guys, Ehpic here and thought i'd post a detailed guide on the wonderful world of Hulk smashing! This sub forum seems a little dead so hoping we can get some discussion going. I'll post a video and picture of my skills below.

The general playstyle that I use for solo ops is 1 shotting non elite/white mobs to wrack up the kill counter for bonus chests, you'll see me doing that in my video below. with this build your hulk smash will have a 4 second cooldown and 100% brutal strike chance so your stat priority is as much brutal damage as possible while stacking some defence. I only kill elites/blues if there's a good chunk of them i can stack up or a dupe with them.

As for stats here is what I aim for so that i'm tanky while still packing a punch!

60% damage reduction (can go higher but not really required with current content)
70k health
as much crit damage as i can without sacrificing brutal damage
3000-3500 brutal strike rating
maximum possible brutal damage without sacrifising defence.
you'll want a little crit chance so your meteor strike has a chance to brutal now and then. I'm toying with the idea of adding a bit more crit hit but for now i keep that fairly low.

in the below video, sorry i forgot to take a screenshot of my stats and synergies but i'll list them here from memory. I'll edit this post tonight with screenshots of both.

My stats fluctuate depending if i'm going for a bit more survival or dps.
25~ durability
17~ strength
500-1000~ crit strike rating
3000+ brutal strike rating
5000+ crit damage rating
12000+ brutal damage rating
60% damage reduction
68,000 effective health.

all infinity in brutal damage rating.
all damage/melee/str/dur synergies

here's a screenshot of stats & synergies, as said above it fluctuates this is just with one of my gearsets.

artifacts that work well with this build are
Gem of the Kursed
Vibro Smashers
Ultron Bi-Level Concussion projector
Sentinel targeting unit
in lieu of ultron projector and sentinel targeting unit, if you don't have one i'd suggest either white suit jacket or a ziggarut. You want to get brutal damage and brutal strike ideally, durability / str are ok if you can't do that.

Doc Oc Medallion with crit damage or brutal damage rating roll.

aoe rotation:
Leap twice to get vulnerability rolling, try to spread your leap around to make sure it's on as many people as possible. use roar then hulk smash to kill all the white mobs. With over 10k brutal damage you should 1 shot all white mobs on the screen. If it's a pack of blues/yellows that i want to kill the rotation is a bit different and will be as follows.

single target & burst aoe on elites rotation:
spread leap vulnerability > Roar to stun everything > Hulk smash to max out anger > use dusters > pummel biggest clump twice > leap again > meteor strike > pummel twice more now that everything is stacked > roar > hulk smash again. wait for just before 2 stacks of pummel to use dusters again and pummel twice

use leap/pummel/smash/roar on CD until meteor is back up then repeat the above rotation, always leap before pummel to ensure weaken is active on target. about 5 seconds before meteor resets save your pummel so you have 2 stacks to use in the rotation. use your punch as filler when everything is on cd.

if you have stats around what i've listed above that should be enough to kill any pack of yellows/blues in 1 full rotation and solo burst bosses down in 15 seconds or so.

With this build you will have Meteor strike on a 30 second cooldown, try to use it as often as possible and have it up for the start of the boss fight if you're soloing ops/DR. it'll be less than 30 seconds if you have a max level nullifier. I personally went axe first and i'm currently leveling my nullifier.

    Congratz on leveling your legendary. I just unlocked rank 4 yesterday.

    Sub forum is so dry because everyone just looks and does not comment. Window shopping with money lol

  • EhpicEhpic Posts: 466 Amazing

    thanks! and yeah, not as dry as some others but still pretty quiet.

  • DarkallahDarkallah Posts: 5 New Agent

    Thanks for the build idea, I think I'll try this out tonight.

  • EhpicEhpic Posts: 466 Amazing

    have fun!

    I have to say I tried your build and it's very effective, and most of all a lot of fun. Now if I can only get a Gem of the Kursed to drop, cosmic or otherwise.

    Just wanna say thanks for this build. Wanted to give Hulk another blast so tried this last night and was wrecking. Got Nullifier to rank 1 and starting to feel the difference building up Brute Strike

    I'll probably main Deadpool... or Hulk... actually no I shall main Nova... or Rocket...
    This is and will be my life for the next undecided amount of time...

    sweet, 15 second meteor strike once you get nullifier to level 5 almost feels OP ;) have fun!

  • DoserDoser Tewkesbury, UKPosts: 1,155 Astonishing

    Any reason on high brutal strike if you've already got guaranteed brutals... or is that for the first part of the pummels that only crit prior to the brutal?

    pummels plus i want meteor strike to brutal as much as possible. with level 5 nullifier it's on a 15 second cooldown and with my stats i've had it brutal for over 2 million

    I'm surprised to see hulks Sig isn't in your build. Can you comment on that? I'm actually just levelling my hulk now.

    I personally found the damage output from the sig lacking, compared to utilizing Hulk Smash (with guaranteed brut) and meteor strike on a 15 second cooldown. (with level 5 nullifier)

    But wouldn't the damage output be higher than knuckledusters?

    to be honest i use knuckle dusters for the immunity while it's casting more than for the damage. Doesn't hurt that the aoe damage usually hits for 150k plus the added damage on pummel hits. the knockback on the clap is also quite annoying as it breaks clumps up, when i want things stacked..

    if you're comfortable with your survival there's no reason you couldn't drop dusters for sig if you want to. I just like the extra immunities :)

    Ah yes that push back would be a pain. I know I avoid all cosmics with any pushback on dash.

    Hey Ehpic if you don't mind sharing, I would like to know what stats you have on each piece of gear. Would help me out allot. If you don't want to go through all that trouble I understand.

  • Omi43221Omi43221 Posts: 13 Mighty

    I had idea for exact same build but was planning on putting a lot more in the anger stat than you. Have you considered trying this?

  • EhpicEhpic Posts: 466 Amazing

    +anger isn't that great for hulk since most abilities/benefits are percentage based, you actually want your max anger to be low, so it fills faster. At least that's how i understand it.

    kind of a pain to take pictures of all my gear but if you want to inspect me sometime just add me on PSN and you can inspect me.

    I am on X1 but maybe one day crossplatform will be the norm and won't be a problem :) but that's fine I'll just shot for the base stats you mentioned and trial and error the best spot to get them, thanks a ton for the build tho.
