How to Use the Might of the Earth set
The Might of the Earth set is dedicated to a subset of large-AoE damaging Barbarian skills: most importantly Earthquake, but also Avalanche, Ancient Spear and Seismic Slam. It also adds additional effects to utility cooldowns like Ground Stomp and Leap, encouraging an amalgamation between utility, control and zoned destruction.
- 2-piece bonus
- Reduce the cooldown of Earthquake, Avalanche, Leap, and Ground Stomp by 1 second for every 30 Fury you spend with an attack.
- 4-piece bonus
- Leap causes an Earthquake when you land. Additionally, Leap gains the effect of the Iron Impact rune and the rune's effect and duration are increased by 150%.
- 6-piece bonus
- Increase the damage of Earthquake, Avalanche, Leap, Ground Stomp, Ancient Spear and Seismic Slam by 20,000%.
The 2-piece bonus of the Might of the Earth set reduces the cooldowns of Earthquake, Avalanche, Leap and Ground Stomp by 1 second for every 30 Fury spent. This offers targeted synergy with resource dump spenders like Seismic Slam Rumble and Ancient Spear Boulder Toss, allowing for instant resets of your crucial skills. Seismic Slam is the recommended spender in a MotE setup, due to the Girdle of Giants bonuses.
The 4-piece bonus of the Might of the Earth set produces one of the signature effects of the playstyle, triggering an Earthquake when you land with Leap. You also gain an empowered version of the Iron Impact rune, granting the necessary survivability to any set worth its salt. Note the 4-piece bonus' synergy with Lut Socks and Band of Might, both usually cubed, as well as the benefits from the passive Earthen Might, which keeps your resource pool ready for dumps.
The 6-piece bonus of the Might of the Earth set simply offers a massive damage boost to the roster of skills associated with the set.
