Review, runes and strategy

Hrungnir (Dark Barbaric King) is a really funny to use single target Nuker with huge DPS capabilities, while applying DoT for 2 turns on first skill, his second skill is a great tool too since it stuns with >80% the enemy, recovers 30% of the damage dealt and deals a great amount of damage with a multiplier of 600%. This reasons may seem enough to render him a wonderful unit in Light Raid Beast and guild wars (especially for his leader skill) but the main reason that makes him a special monster is the dark barbaric king's third skill, infact Frenzy comes with a multiplier of 700% giving him the ability to kill targets on the first shot, also it has the 40% chance to get another turn without putting itself in cooldown! and even if this chance fails you'll have to wait only 3 turns to re-use it.

This unique skill gives him also lot of chances to enter a Necropolis Dungeon team, and last but not least, makes him usage really entertaining because you can easy see him getting four to seven turns in a row with Frenzy and, by consequence, shot an entire guild war defense!

YES. He´s definitely worth developing even after he´s been nerfed. Still can be a pretty good damage dealer.
