I don't know if this topic has been up before, but I'll ask it anyway.

Which class is the easiest to gear and get ready to run smooth Duncraig runs without 300 deaths? I got access to a bunch of SU's / SSU's as well as Fauzt great runes and a lot of Shrines.
Thanks in advance.

TA really doesn't drop better than duncraig.

Personally I've had a lot of success with Tantrumdin a few patches ago and right now I've been farming it really fast with melee sorc (ripped directly off solfege's guide) with 400+ mf. I get maybe 3+ SU's per run and i only run the initial area that doesn't need teleporting to access so it takes less than 5 minutes per run.

Sword spiral is nice there, you have ww to dodge barrels, you have huge def + block to be immortal.
Or just spearzon and be faster.

dunc is good perhaps even better than TA however when im farming i like to turn my brain off and relax and even with a godly character dying to the occasional barrel really throws off your farming mojo. I really tried to give dunc more of a try this ladder but i just ended up resorting to doing ta runs since it netted far more su an hour and i got some pretty beastly stuff from it.

I wonder if its possible in future patches to make the dunc barrels glow red or some other color its very hard to see them with all the other garbage on the screen in dunc

For dunc best chances are for sin cause it has liw cd blink with aoe stun, barb with ww or spiritwalk, totem necro, treewarden gets dunc rekt cause high damage and multihit, melee necro jumps, spearzon, werewolf druid, poison sorc with chronosphere and ice elementals, there are tons of possibilities. Of all I think barb with ww is the best...

Well, the fuses are hard to overlook imo. If you see one coming your way, just go one screen further away. It never really bothered me much that you can't see the barrels using that strategy.

Talking about barrel, is there a way to tank it ? I'm talking about extreme cases

Back in XVI, you could. They did 50k Magic damage. So with 75% Magic Res and 12501 Life, you could tank it. Idk how much damage barrels do now since the damage rework, and Magic Res is harder to get.
