Also, what is that mark of the wild on barb axes that OP recommends, what does it do and how do I get it?

you get by shrine crafting a barbarian axe

Mark of the wild gives you attack speed and damage.

You shouldn't go straight mf before you are familiar with tour end game setup and know what stats you can sacrifice for mf. Even with 100 mf you are fine and can find good itema allready.

So, this build is pretty OP for leveling (for the moment) but I dont get one thing, why dont you max iron spiral?

PD: I'm new to Median XL so there might be something I'm missing.

because it only adds bonus lightning damage and you already get that without needing to spend extra points into it

in general it's only worth investing into skills that have synergies or selfsynergies

I saw in one of your videos you have an addon or something that notifies you when something special drops. I've been looking for something like that for a while now but i keep getting older mods and things that went out of commission years ago. Can you tell me what mod that is? I'd love to have it.

just look for stats that you need. akarat and Jitan are pretty good for example.
