How do i not get a shock debuff placed on me when i am attacking Hulkbuster? I'm wondering because I'm currently on act 5.3.5 and planning out my path and there is a Hulkbuster, so I'm wondering how to deal with him. If you have any tips, let me know :)

    Use a shock immune, or CMM.

    Schock immunity or powerful AAR.
    Could also zerg him down with High damagers like Corvus or Doom

    You are inflicted by shock debuff when you land a critical hit WHEN he has Armor Up active. So to avoid either have nullify/armor break champ or someone who doesn't crit (e.g. G2099, Crossbones)

    Shock immune or remove his armor or do not crit

    Or bring CMM and go brrrrr

    Willpower mastery pretty much cancels out enough of the damage to ignore it.

    Also not getting hit helps in general

    Armor break and nullify champs are preferred

    Bring a shock immune, nullify, or armor break champion.
    I prefer to bait Sp1

    Wait... Shouldn't Xbones also work since he never crits? HBs Schock damage only activates if he has a armor up on, and you crit him.

    Use Guardian, G2099, or Crossbones

    Armor break. Medusa, Corvus, Cull, CMM, Iron Fist, etc.

    Nullify. Doom, Claire, Longshot, etc.

    Shock immune. I only can think of Storm X lol.

    AAR. Falcon

    He works but also you should never bring someone with no crits and no DoT against someone with chunky armor. It makes for a supremely long fight.

    Yeah. Isn't the consensus Fury --x> Armor <✓--Crits?
    He is still a option no? Personally I just bring Corvus for zerg method (only have 4* maxed). I hate HBs special 2, cant get the timing down.
    XB has incinerate debuffs iirc

    Yeah I mean he can DO it, and yeah he has incinerate, but it’s not really for damage. Crits ignore armor, so no crits means he always gets the damage reduction. If it’s the only choice you have then yeah just bait L1 and stuff, but it will be longer than it needs to be.
