TennoHQ's Desert Wind without mods that don't work

Baruuk Build: https://overframe.gg/build/207050/

DO NOT USE [Primed Heavy Trauma] I have no idea why nobody had the idea to test it out before putting it in their build...
[Primed Heavy Trauma] actually only increases your damage if you deal Impact damage! If [Reactive Storm] decides that, for example, Radiation is the best damage type right now, [Primed Heavy Trauma] will have absolutely ZERO effect!

You can easily test it out in the simulacrum. Just take an empty [Baruuk] with only [Reactive Storm] and empty Desert Winds and then test it again with Impact damage mods like [Primed Heavy Trauma] and [Collision Force]. The very first hit always deals impact damage which will be increased but after that there is no difference between the empty build and the one with Impact damage mods!

ELEMENTAL damage type doesn't matter thanks to [Reactive Storm] so we use Viral because [Primed Fever Strike] exists and the [Desert Wind] comes with the Vazarin polarity for [North Wind]. Don't ask me why everybody decides to forma away that polarity so they can put Corrosive for no reason at all...

And while we are at it, [Condition Overload] DOESN'T WORK ON THE WAVES EITHER! Only the actual melee hit is affected...

(I'm having a small mental breakdown seeing all these builds being upvoted on here)

But back to this build, using [Sacrificial Pressure] instead of [Primed Pressure Point] actually results in slightly more DPS but you would need to use an Umbral Forma for that. Your call.

And if you REALLY don't like faction mods, put another 90% elemental one in there but be aware that that's quite a substantial hit to DPS.

Anyway, have a nice day :)
