Abdn crafted armor, belt and boots.

350k armor with bear stance, 62% block (working on sigs for max block), 10k hp, hitting all breakpoints, and I have most of the charms.

The main problem right now is that the kill speed is rather low, so hitting 121 is really hard especially if we're talking /p 8 dcows.

My thoughts so far: I can substitute the boots for
Epicenter (Xis)
Epicenter
Boots

'IthXis'
Runeword Level: 120
(0.125 per level)% Chance of Crushing Blow (Based on Character Level)
+(203 to 231)% Enhanced Defense
Maximum Life (25 to 30)%
Cannot be Unsocketed
once 121, belt I could go for
Nero
Nero
Belts

'Auhe'
Runeword Level: 100
10% Chance to cast level 14 Fortress on Melee Attack

+150% Damage to Demons
Adds 125-250 fire damage
+(16 to 20)% to Fire Spell Damage
2% Deadly Strike
+(7 to 12) to Path of Flames
+(115 to 143)% Enhanced Defense
and as for armor,
Strength Beyond Strength
Strength Beyond Strength
Gothic Plate (Sacred)

Required Level: 100

1% Reanimate as: Inarius

might be the play but I cant get my hands on it. I also thought about
Metalhead
