Ok great. I have around 100k defense and like 12-13k brimstone damage and over -100 resistance to fire. I think i need to max my resistances though. For some reason i have difficulties on just act 5 destruction. Might be the way im playing. Maybe too aggressive. Thanks for the help!

No problem! You might want to keep some distance all the time. Superbeast has ridiculously low hit recovery breakpoints and you're likely to get stun locked if you're rushing into a crowd.

A few resist MOs on your jewelry should solve your problem. But even then you should be careful as monsters in Destruction deal a good amount of damage even with maxed resists.

It can be up to 30 runs sometimes to get what you want. Just depends on RNG.

Check out the cube recipes in the docs if you need more info about making uniques

I found this hat, would it be better to keep this instead of upgrading it to skull lord, or crafting a helmet?

Oh, you got Brimstone on it, nice. You can use it until you get a sacred helm for craft. But i would recommend switching to sacred rares/crafts sooner or later for the reason that crafts will likely have better stats and that you can shrine bless them later on, too.
