Pulverise

Pulverise is an ultimate Strength ability, and when activated, the player deals 250% to 350% weapon damage to their target and reduces all damage the target deals by 25% for 30 seconds, also granting 50% adrenaline if it kills an NPC target.

It is actually impossible to gain both damage reduction and adrenaline at the same time because an enemy can only be either killed or survive from an attack. One exception to this is Araxxor, as reducing him to 0 life points in the first two phases will result in him immediately being healed to 5000 life points, at which point the player will be compensated 50% adrenaline.

This ability is most useful against strong boss monsters or other players, as it will reduce the potentially high amount of damage they deal.

When killing weaker monsters en masse you can take advantage of the adrenaline compensation effect. Generally speaking, however, Meteor Strike is almost always a better alternative due to its ability to hit multiple targets and its relatively high chance of activating a critical hit (this can be further increased by +20% per large pen with at least 1 elder Corbicula Rex in it), in addition to its secondary effect of restoring 10% adrenaline per critical hit dealt. These effects combined can often result in a net gain of well over 50% adrenaline.
