This build is not based on T6 gear like Aerial's guide is. This build will is more focused on building 1 single skill set and solving every obstacle with that. so no skill swapping as much as on aerial's guide but aerial's guide is more accurate on killing uberbosses tho :)

Stormblast max, deadalus max, and - enemy lightning resistance on gear.

I see, thanks. I thought there was another easy go-to lightning damage source. Seems like there's just the old-fashioned way.

Also, I don't think stormblast gives lightning damage? Does it give static lightning damage with hard points? (I only have it at base level 1)

no it just converts your weapon damage to 100% lightning damage and also gives AR per base level. you still want pretty high AR to hit astro :)

Does iron spiral still work really well or is it best to switch the sword to an axe for Deathgaze? Not much else changes I assume.

I would argue that because axes have better available items, but it's working fine. I've been running pure lion stance with spiral and its fine.

that is why i said almost as good. both works just fine but as you said there is much better options for axes and itemization on deathgaze build for sure. :)
