The leveling process was straight forward (probably due to tons of meph runs and almost maxing my gear at lvl 50) and even Destruction was not hard with almost full early game gear
I probably will play a similar character next season as starting character because I really like the playstyle and the power after a few days of playtime. He is a great charm farmer and could probably do even more in more experienced hands. I play mostly range/caster/summoners, so i am not that familiar with the melee playstyle and its difficulties. All in all I can recommend the build and without the challenge restrictions (no honorifics to craft gear for quov etc) it would be even better
well to be honest i am not surprised that you did good with just the early game gear , since Aerial made a full guide for a very similar build that uses just t6 gear , so you should have more advantage in some spots since you can access some better gear parts (crafts/su's). You can take a look there for extra tips for the ubers you seam to have trouble . Unfortunately this challange is keeping your hands tied in order to make some gear adjustments for some specific ubers .
good luck !

There are many viable TU choices for early game which aren't on the list...
they are not listed because the honorifics are better than any of your suggestions
and require much less stats invested to equip (str/dexterity) , that way you can invest a lot more into energy + you need less grinding for arcane crystals . All you need to wory about is the gold for MO's , but you should be fine
and DFT as oskill from that armor is crap btw
