I see people tend to go fire/cold these days. I have a question then. How do you kill ubers with this setup?
I'm playing cold/light. Managed to get to around 250SP/120 pierce with both. I'm using thunderstone for ubers and Warp armor for huge avoid. What about fire/cold build? Heard it's squisher. Which skill for ubers? I feel like my dmg drops off in lower labirynths (8+), and getting nuked even with half million defense and 85 all ress. Any tips?

get 60% physical resist because harpies curse you for -10. get 90% ele resist because more resist. use summons as temporary distraction. lure smaller mobs or one by one instead of trying to blow through a whole room.

you should focus on one element, probably. Gear selection gets real weird when you try to double stack. You should aim for -135 enemy pierce and -170 for bosses and double or triple your spell damage for that element, whiever you pick.

Im at 15kdmg (buffed) flamefront dmg with -140 res while keeping cuandera on for 45% phys resist, am going to experiment with Armor of old religion to try to get dmg higher and see if that glass cannon approach works.

Yeah keep your ice elementals up and teleport if he gets too close. Use twilight to give big hits and keep flamestrike on. Elementals + teleport most important

How do you get such high tank stats and maintain a decent level of damage without using Tyrael's Might (item so rare that some seasons go without even 1 dropping) Curandera is great for phys resist, 60% is easy with this item. How about ele res? Stacking perf gems instead of spell damage/EF/Energy jewlels?

you have to make alternate specs compared to full dps, usually casters struggle with this because of pierce, unless they gain mass amounts of pierce from a skill.

certain items need replaced to adjust for the uber, much like the rest of the game throws at you.
