The guide is from two patches ago and hasn't been updated to reflect the more recent changes. Check the previous page for the my post regarding skill plan adjustment and rings. If you aren't getting avoid through symbiosis, you should be. Consider switching back to FoN as it is a decent portion of end game damage. Upgrade to

for the added ele damage/skill and extra defense (6k+ in a sacred plated belt) asap. Coldhunger is a good helm but for now you should be using

in a sacred spirit mask(~3.5k def). It has too many useful stats and available orb space to not use it. Keep Coldhunger for Fauzt though.
I'm not aware of your charm situation but if you have 79 max res are you missing

? Craft some jewels with attack rating and speeds for break points if necessary and slowly replace them with similar ones with magic find. If you're using -req jewels in Flying Saucer you can dump them for better ones as the base dex you add to equip the shield will improve your attack rating anyway. + to druid/all skills are pretty important for defense via lifeshield and improved life after each kill from Circle of Life so see if you're missing any charms that have those stats and farm/trade for them. I'm using all the gear you mentioned except I have ghal belt/Natha and I'm sitting at 312k defense, 17.2k life. I have a total of 29 charms atm.
If you can make most of these changes you should see a noticeable improvement to kill speed and survivability.
About farming Nihlathak, it can be rippy with low defense and theres some enemies that cast debuff spells. Its much easier if you know which enemies do what so you can play more defensively when cursed.
