The beta patch notes for 1.2 are out:

Lots of changes to Lord Darrens Voulge

I do not understand what all of these changes mean,, but probably we have to say goodbye to the suicide bomber.

I think you won't be able to damage yourself anymore. Also the helm was nerfed and it's not possible anymore to stack multiple charges.

 

 

Yeah you are right, first since the Static Thunder only works when u have stacks, so you cannot hurt yourself with it, secondly the helm only works on big elec damage now because it is not stackable, so very sad indeed :)

The helm now give you bonus from first electric damage and then recharge bonus duration ?

I think how it works now is every new buff replace old ones, even new buff has less lash bonus, I haven't tested it in detail but the description hints it works this way.

Keep in mind you have to "dump" your reflex to get hit by these "reflex" based spells ... so I don't know how viable that is solo where in general you want to have as high saves as possible.

Oh well, it looks like I didn't move fast enough to play this. Too bad; it looked really fun.

Don't worry you can always increase reflex after Chain Lightning

I don't know about the helm, but Static Charges definitely get placed in aoe on my Berserkers. I thought this was by design, but maybe that's a function of Carnage.

Does Carnage still place Static Charges w/ Lord Darryn's Voulge?

Check the dates. This is an old thread and the truly absurd stacking got patched out in v1.2, see the later comments. You can still make something like it work, lord darryn's volgue still synergizes nicely with barbarian's carnage, but it's not nearly as strong as it used to be. Also single class barbarians don't really start to shine until level 16 when they can get heart of fury.
