Pulverize is a rune effect in Bash, a Fury-generating Barbarian skill.

This rune effect launches a wave of force past the target, in a straight line, dealing 38% weapon damage to all enemies within 26 yards. Note that the Barbarian can use shift+click to stand still and swing, essentially making this a ranged attack.

Post-Release Changes[edit]

The base skill function of Bash was improved in the v1.0.4 patch, in an attempt to make the skill a better alternative to the very popular Frenzy.[1] No additional improvements were made specifically to Pulverize, but the skill rune still became more effective thanks to the added damage and Fury generation from Bash.

Bash change in v1.0.4:

  • Fury generated increased from 6 to 8
    • Weapon damage increased from 150% to 165%
