Which part of what i said is overpriced and overused except the SSSU weapons that are purely optional. Also, Bullseye shield is far from godly, id say pure garbage, the dude asked for an endgame list, so i gave him what i used. So T6 items and lvl 50 rw's are endgame nowadays? That build of yours might be good for MF but even then it pales in comparison to a neutraldin which you literally need 1 unique item and rest are crafts to clear TA in 2 minutes.

One item I've really taken a liking to on my HM is
Barghest's Howl
Barghest's Howl
Hundsgugel (Sacred)

Defense: (2384-2694) to (2640-2984)
Required Strength: 363
Required Level: 100
(Paladin Only)
5% Chance to cast level 23 Bloodlust on Melee Attack
(11 to 21)% Life stolen per Hit
+5 to Wolf Stance
Hit Causes Monster to Flee 1%
Slows Target by 5%
+(115 to 143)% Enhanced Defense
+50 to Strength
Replenish Life +500
3% Reanimate as: Sinner
-2 to Light Radius
Socketed (4)

. Big leech, flat strength. 5% more slow target towards not having to bust out Krys gloves. Bloodlust proc means Shamanka can be swapped for Darkspite on prebuff, and since this BL doesn't scale immensely with levels you won't miss out on much. Wolf Stance gives huge velocity, skill IAS and FHR, freeing up jewel and MO space as well as fewer hard points needed into Rapture (crushing blow doesn't hurt either). I believe it competes with all but the godliest crafts.

If you dont want to use Krys gloves then yeah that helm is very good.

Barghest howl is a high end helm and very rare one too. Which items you pick should be mostly related to what your build is oriented to. For example, I can guarantee that if you go for venom sting you definitely wont choose barghest howl over fautzin helm. Yes the helm is decent but the dragon already has decent moving speed and leech from its passive and solar flare. Buffing with bloodlust is just a matter of confort.

Any tips for D-Baal? I think I should be doing better than I have been and can't seem to figure out how to get him past 50% health. Is it RNG with how much he spawns in making it worse?

I just did D-Ball. Yeah, I think it is RNG, at one point I was fighting vs Baal, two Mephistos and Minion of Destruction. Make sure you have capped DR, FHR and IAS and 10-15 points in incarnation. Keep vindicate and incarnation up at all cost, also have an apple. Jump on him with colosseum, spam DJ on him. If he summons something, run away, DA to bridge or something to kite away Baal and kill summons -> repeat
